Glad you like the pics, hope to put swimming on tonight (the net cafe I'm in now at the airport is expensive). Sian told me about dads job so I'm pleased. Leaving the school was terrible but will talk about that in my blog. Lots of love to everyone always Johnathan XXX
Pics are cool arent they. i'm in Nairobi airport now getting ready to go to South Africa. I can't believe I have left the school it doesn't feel real, I'm gutted when I think about it. I loved it there, was brill. Will miss the kids so much! Keep in touch with me from country to country to see what capers me and Sian get up to. Sian told me about the army, that was quick! You will have to keep me posted on your plans! Speak to you soon dude. You stay safe too X
Hi Jackie, glad you found my page, you have a lot of catching up to do! Everything single bit of organising and stress was worth it, a million times over. Everyone was great with what they give me. I hope the pics help people realise how grateful the kids were and how much their efforts were appreciated. Keep in touch. Lots of love, Johnathan X
Sorry dude, is this James Cowling or James Croft. Thanks for the message though. I've had a truely amazing time here but I leave tomorrow evening so only one more day in school, gutted! We had a amazing day today though (read my blog to find out lol). Stay safe X
Cool, I'm sure we will be able to make at least one of them, I hope. Are the first few dates you give me for Cape Town? I will check dates with Sian because she knows itinerary for SA. Nice one!
That sounds amazing Nat, I'm so happy they liked the pics. Wish I was there to listen in on the discussion. Send everyone my love. Let me khow how the Africa week goes and if I can help in any way let me know. Not sure how but if there are any questions maybe I could answer I promise to reply asap. Lots of love Johnatahan X
Ha ha do you mean the pics of the baby pool? There was a big pool too were we tried to teach them to swim. When the kids werent in the big pool they were either in the baby one splashing about or in the park with swings etc. They loved it. Good memories. Thanks for checking in and hope you do again. Hope your well and speak to you soon X
Too busy to sunbath mate, thought you would appreciate the busy scheduale of a teacher! Actualy I made sure I spent this weekend (my last!) relaxing. Me and other volunteers went to a hotel in town and chilled there all day. I relaxed by the pool (even had a swim) with cold Tuskas. I even got sunburnt so hopefully my tan will improve now!
Unfortunatly Ryan Air was fully booked but I managed to gwet my self on South African Air. I got exactly the same flight as Sian found for 550 for 450! I new us boys were right to 'wing it', silly girls!
I havn't taught my class the songs Nat give me because I thought they may be to young for them. But I have realised thats silly and they will love them so will teach them tomorrow. If you or Nat have any songs or anything 7-8yr olds might like post them here. Good to hear from you and thanks. Take care and keep in touch.
LOL I laughed out load in the cafe reading that message, yes I am hot, smelly and hungry but its amazing here. Love it, keep in touch x
The dog was amazing but very crazy. LOve me tat its better than I expected, still healing though and had to stay out of water even though my last hostel had a jacuzzi, sauna and pool! O well its worth it. I will post a pic when it is healed. SAfari was fab and the Rhino was the size of a bus lol they were very agile at the same time, very impressive. Glad they didn't charge the jeep we would of not had a chance lol. Thanks for the message and speak soon. Off to Thailand tomorrow!!!
Thailand is great mum, I feel safer walking the streets of Koh Samui than I do in parts of Liverpool haha. Seriously though it is very safe here and me and Sian are having a ball. My next blog should be quite funny as quite a few amusing things have happened while being in Thailand. Unfortunalty I don't have at the moment to blog. I have just been emailing a few people from Kenya so all my time has gone. I will e-mail you back soon. Love Johnathan X
Wrestler is poo, dont waste your time watching it. I caught the last 10 mins and managed to catch the film again when it was repeated, not worth it. I missed anchor man too, gutted. Too busy ordering drinks. Dont hesertate they never say no lol. love u x

I weighed up the baboon and decided he could probably take me, and even if he couldn't his 8 or so mates down the path would of defiantly. Apparently baboons can live in groups up to 500, would you still have grabbed the maccies lol. Good to hear from you bro, keep in touch. Love Johnathan x
