Expeditions! How do you poo in the Arctic?

We have been to Matema beach. We went swimming LOADS of times in Lake Malawi. In the afternoons,the waves were so big. I was playing with Louisa, and a HUGE wave came and we were underwater! We also had lots of water fights. Daddy and I tried and tried to get Andy. Daddy got him and  Andy kept hiding behind his dear wife Angela, making excuses that if we got her we would be in hot water! But I squeezed a balloon over him and got him wet!

CAtching the waves!
Birthday at Matema
We had an expedition to a volcanic crater lake and looked for German treasure. And we had an expedition high up in the mountains and looked for gold. And an expedition to see a natural bridge made out of lava.

Can you see us?
Tonight is my birthday party because I was at Matema for my Birthday.The Galvins will come and Marta, Laura, Andy and Angela. There will be a bonfire and light-up balloons and we will roast marshmellows and hot dogs, potatos and dough boys. We will paint baloons, the ones other people did looked really funny! We have made birthday gingerbread house from Taylor and Matthew in Canada instead of a cake.

We have started learning about the poles, the Arctic and the Antarctica. Do any of you know how to poo in the Arctic? I need to plan an expedition and I need to think about these things! What do you think I might need to take with me? Here is an Arctic joke ... what vegetable was forbidden on ships of arctic explorers? (Leeks!) Did you know that when polar bears try to catch seals, they put their paws over their noses so they can't be seen?


  1. what a lovely cake, you can make me one when you come over to Endland ha ha, looking forward to seeing you all. love shirley & Vicki

  2. Love the gingerbread house. As far as what you take to the Arctic is concerned, I'd probably take plenty of chocolate. It would be a good excuse, even if you don't really need it. And as you've got a lot of toothpaste, it would be worth taking some of that as well (although getting it out of the tube might give you the same problem as pooing!)
