Back to Sudan


Well the last few days have been rather busy as we have been travelling back to Sudan.
We got here Tuesday morning, having left lunchtime on Sunday. So we have been trying to get some sleep - which can be quite challenging with a 1 and a 2 yr old.

This is a picture of our main/big room.
In Sudan it's really normal to have a bed (which is used like a sofa) in most rooms. The 'front door' is at the back in the middle. The metal shutters come right off the windows (there's no glass) which is really nice in the winter.
This is our kitchen. We're making pancakes:

Karaama outside our house

A couple of months ago some of our neighbours held a (Sufi) Karaama (lots of LOUD DRUMS etc and kill a sheep type thing because someone's wife got well).

It was RIGHT outside our house.

Matt politely went and sat with some of our friends (neighbours).

I stayed inside and sang 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' very very loudly about a hundred times - attempting to keep Potspie and Chops asleep/get them back to sleep.

These are pictures taken looking back towards our house.
(The white 'cage' on the side of the house is for the car)

Things I've made..

I like making things.
These are some shirts/little dresses I made for Potspie.

'Trying to Escape'.
At 11 months old her main aim in life was to escape out the front door!

Home in Sudan

This is our house in Sudan.
We took these photos 2 years ago when we first moved in.
It has changed a little - we have tallish trees in our yard now!


This shows the kitchen (on the left) and our front door (the white double doors a bit to the right).

So I have started a blog.
But what to write.
More importantly how do I do this (get blog looking reasonable)?
Hmm. It can't be that hard.
