Easter long weekend

Friday was so wet. I think it rained solidly for 24 hours - as it had done for Thursday, and then did for Saturday.

We spent the morning melting cooking chocolate, mixing it with Rice Bubbles/Rice Crispies, and filling Hello Kitty plastic eggs with the gooey mixture.

I found the Hello Kitty eggs in a supermarket in Njiro and thought they would be perfect molds for Easter eggs.
We are still cleaning up the chocolate in the kitchen.

On Sunday we were delighted to see that Katie's new baby, Matilda, came to church.
Matilda is still being cared for by a baby home until all the paper work goes through for her adoption, but they rang Katie to ask would she like to collect her for Sunday morning.

Today we had brunch at the Blue Heron.
It was a lovely time sitting with friends in the sunshine, and enjoying a very generous buffet. So. Much. Food.

This afternoon Katie's house turned into a salon as we hired some local men to come and give pedicures.
I still find it unusual that it is the men who do all the manicure/pedicures here in Tanzania.

I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend. xx
