So folks this was the spider that we found in week 1
Hi everyone, well last weekend what can I say, the White Water was fantastic, really enjoyed that but I have to admit after bashing my head on the jeep door and giving myself whiplash (still haver a stiff neck) and concussion I decided not to climb the 4000+ steps to the top of Adam's Peak, well can you blame me, the others left at 2.15am to get there to see the sun rise and yes from their photos it did look amazing, but hey seen one sunrise seen'm all that's what I say hahahahaha.

So it's Monday and I pop out to buy more paint and post some parcels back to the UK, should've known it was a bad idea when they made me open the packages in the postoffice incase they were bombs!!! Well I can understand how they feel but I love you all loads and would not be sending horrible things back. Anyway 40 minutes later when at last I left the post office, having had to attach the postage things with glue to the parcels, don't ask let's just see if they turn up, special delivery should be 3 days, more like 3 weeks, they may just arrive home before I do hahahaha

Anyway that's not the best thing, got back to room to find Tina madly trying to kill loads and I mean loads of cockroaches, we had at least 40 at one point (no exaggeration) they were on the walls and cupboards and the floor and even my bed, but after packing our bags and insisting on being moved we have been rehoused in the teacher's house which is better, at least there are only two of us sharing the room now hahahaha. I can laugh now but to be honest I was crying earlier, I'd had enough and was ready to catch the first flight out. But I'm a Brand and we Brands soldier on (although sometimes I wish we could just curl up somewhere and forget the world).

So jsut a short one today and Tracey there aren't any photos yet I'm holding you all in suspense but hopefully tonights the night.

Bye for now, more later this week.

P.S. thanks to my family and friends for answering my SOS can't wait for the parcels. xxxxx
