we went off to Mother Teresa's home in the morning for our third day there. Today was a bit different as it was Sunday and Sister Jonathan wasn't there, she was at church in the morning. Things just don't run as smoothly as they should when Sister isn't about, some were still in their beds when they should have been up, others were very wet and the girls working there were not changing them. We were also the only volunteers there so we were really busy all morning, but it was good and the morning passed really quickly. Milo got Sebastian all mucky trying to feed him, it was everywhere. We are getting to know all their names now and starting to see their little personalities, we even have little nick names for them, but I won't share them with you all because.... well,  I guess some would think we are being a bit cruel. Then we had some fun with a few of the older people in the home helping them fold up the laundry, of which there was a very big pile , as you can imagine.
Later it was off to the french bakery called Baker street, that kas pictures of Japanese geisha girls on the walls, I think it has a bit of an identity crises going on, still, the Baguettes with Ham Cheese and salad are great as are the Croissants and other pastries, oh and the coffee is excellent.

By the way I am certain the home could do with any donations of children's clothes that anyone might have laying about. If you have any just let us know and we will collect them and parcel them up  when we get home.
