Practical preparations

As well as the language, missiology and organisational training going on – we’ve been getting stuck into the serious, practical aspects in preparation for life in Mozambique. Matilda has been undergoing some intense mango eating sessions, one a morning for the last few weeks, a skill sure to come in useful in years to come…

And then later on this morning I decided I’d try my hand at hairdressing! After Cam messaged to tell me they were trying to charge him $45 to get Tilly’s haircut on a Saturady (ummm – no thankyou!), I thought I’d give it a go myself. Now boys hair is pretty easy – pair of clippers with a number 3 and you really can’t go wrong but girls, bit of a different story. I searched high and low for a bowl to use but just couldn’t find one suitable so had to go a bit freestyle. The little worm just wouldn’t sit still though – even after I threatened to chop her ear/arm/nose off. So while Cam man-handled her head, I cut away. It was a bit of a shaky start but I think it’s turned out ok. Complete with “Jennifer Aniston” style layering around the face… maybe if that whole Orthopaedic Surgeon thing doesn’t work out for me, I could take up hairdressing. What do you think?…
