All change

Our household has been going through some changes the past couple of weeks. Here is an update of who we now live with. Amelia has left for China. She has gone to Equatorial Guinea for a couple weeks first. This is a small island not far from the coast of Cameroon. she was supposed to fly last Tuesday. He flight was at 6pm and she was going to leave the house at 3pm and pop in to see her sister on her way to the airport. Which is about 1 1/2 hours from here. So unsurprising she missed the flight. She came home late that night then went our early the next morning to get a boat instead. We will miss Amelia she was good fun. Hopefully she will be home at some point while we are still here.

Jeff has gone back to Yaounde to his family. We have met his Dad, who is Genesis senior brother. He is a private investigator. Gabriel has now arrived. He is the son of Genesis eldest sister. He lives here to go to school in Buea and goes home to his family in the north west province for the holidays. Gabriel is older than Jeff. He is about 14 maybe. Very quite and doing all the house hold chores.

Sharlotte is staying with us for a month or so. She lives in one of the villages but goes to school in Buea. It is too far to travel each day. So she will stay with us until her sister comes to the University of Buea and gets accommodation. Sharlotte is about 13. I think she is scared of me! On Saturday I was offering her a biscuit and she said no. Marceline had to tell her it was OK and she could have one of my biscuits then she happily took one! I also had to talk her in to sitting next to me on the sofa.

Sheila did not get the grades to go to University so is re-sitting her A' levels. She goes to night school. So will be remaining in the house.

The house is not so packed now but is always busy!
