Well last week was a tad dramatic as mum will know! A few little concerns with a jamaican man linked with some volunteers and money owed to them...got a bit ugle but hopefully it has passed now but that made last week really tough and especially as the Kingston death toll as risen to 76 within four days.
But we are very safe from that at the moment! So no worries on that front just a sad situation that this country has turned against each other so easily.
I have very much settled into Jamaican life now, i can't quite imagine England anymore i'm going to have a massive culture shock! The roads, the insane driving without seatbelts, the seriously relaxed personalities, the gorgeous kids, the best sunsets ever! England doesn't quite compare right now, so if you could all move out here that would be great!
I had a great week with the kids i decided to teach them dodgeball which was a risk as when i have done it in England the girls all cry and the boys cry too actually so i thought this could really end in tears...So myself and the P.E teacher warned them we were going to throw it hard and bless them they just got totally over excited and couldn't wait, the roars of laughter was just amazing! NO tears! YES! A success all round, in fact for the first time they listened to me and wanted to do it again!!!
On Thursday the volunteers went to Mile Gully for a day for a "cook-out and concert". So we had the lime and spoon race, needle and thread race, amaaaazing jamaican food, treasure hunt and of course my favourite the reggae dance off! It was awesome fun! Mile Gully is just like paradise it was insane! And we had loads of fun...my team came second...disappointing!
Unfortunately we weren't allowed to travel far because of this gang situation so my best friend here had her birthday on the same day and invited the 6 girls and AJ over for a girly night...reading cosmo magazine with rum and some musical songs a very Brit moment but was needed! Got some fantastic presents including a Red Stripe pair of earrings and a red stripe bottle carving from AJ - guess what i drink out here!! And a Justin Bieber magazine which i plan to burn and some Jamaican toursty things as well as a "Ghetto" t shirt because apparently i am a bit ghetto!
Then on Saturday AJ and I went to Black River and stayed in the first house in Jamaica to get electricity right next to the sea looking over a shipwreck it was awesome! Thought the taxi hit a dog so i was in a bit of a state for a while! Think it was ok though!
So now it's back to work...so i will write at the end of this week! Love to you all! xxx

Hey darling......God you make me laugh!!! I can just imagine you getting the entire school playing dodgeball!! Oh and what i'd do to see you hit the reggae dancefloor in full swing! I've printed out some of your photos and you and Aj already sit on my mantlepiece! I can't wait to meet him and am so delighted that you are both so happy. I'm afraid the presie i've sent you will be slightly out of date when you get it! Dam it! But hope you'll like it anyway- providing it bloody gets there at all, of course! I'm absolutely thrilled you had a great birthday in the end......truly needed especially after such an adrenilin fuelled week! Andrew, Ban, Bubba and I toasted you on Friday night to wish you happy 20th! Say hi to Aj from us all- really, really looking forward to meeting your man! Have a happy day precious. Love you millions. Mummy xxxxxxxxxx ps major missing moment this morning- 'love takes over' came on the radio!! I laughed through my tears!!!

Ah again, it sounds amazing! Haha. I hope you had an amazing birthday, the Justin Bieber magazine sounds pretty tragic so I hope that you do stick to your word and burn it. And I will happily move to Jamaica with you! :) Missing you xxx

Hey AB, as I said in emails and texts wow what a post. Thanks for your emails back yes it is exciting. As you suggested we all went on your pictures on Facebook, looks like you are having the time of your life and Jamaica looks wonderful. We all sang Happy Birthday to you last week, hope the vibes got to you. I am away at the moment on various audition panels but will write longer message next week via email with all our news. I was worried to read your first paragraph on our blog, keep safe, you know where we are if you need anything.
Lots of Love Dad and all the Keinton crew.
PS Yeovil playing Man Utd in a pre season friendly, at Huish, but I have a feeling it is while you are away in Teneriffe. If not hope you are up for it?
