Feliz dia del madre!

Yesterday was mothers’ day here- did del madre. My class at school had made chocolates to sell to other students to give to their Mums. It was a mission but they just about got it together in the end.

Auntie Mim and Uncle John are staying with us at the moment and we all went out for cake and ice cream to celebrate. It is great having them to stay, we have been catching up, finding out all about their travels and sharing life here with them. We love Mim and John! Chloe is loving having them around too, fulltime playmates!

We are celebrating Dia del madre at Church by cooking an English roast- John offered last week so today we will be buying loads of veggies, chickens and trimmings. We hope to treat all the Mums and get the guys to cook and serve. In a macho society this is quite unusual. John is heading this project up so today we head to Abasto to buy up the food. I am looking forward to paying a guy to load the food into a wheelbarrow as we go round the market.

We’ll see how it all goes tomorrow!



  1. A proper wheelbarrow job!

  2. I would love to have been at that meal! John is awesome when he is in the kitch cooking up an enormous roast! I feel ravenous already! Loads of love to ALL of you. Mum B.
