A massive thank you to everyone who donated. I got my parents to take things over as well as me. Here is a picture of the final items. I donated these to a school just out side of Johanasburg in a small township. The kids took great delight in investigating my hair!

Mark and MeWell, ok, so I packed about 10 days ago. That doesn’t mean that I won’t have forgotten something!
It’s just a shame that I can’t pack my husband. Only 5 1/2 weeks till I see him out there though.
