Shopping in the village in general and at the market in particular, is ridiculously economical. In my list below, I calculated the first item, afterwards I'm sure you'll find it easy to work out the rest.
Yesterday I bought avocado pears each, KES10 / US$ .11 c/ ZAR1; tomatoes per kg KES20; pawpaw each KES15; spring onion bunch KES5; mangoes each KES15; oranges each KES5; watermelon (see next to cabbage) KES15; Cabbage KES15; Spinach bunch KES5, red onions per kg KES80, potatoes per kg KES40; bananas each KES5 and so on. Naomi shopped at Tamil's store for me and bought sachets of fresh (longlife) milk, KES50; eggs each KES10; sunflower oil 1 litre, KES200; hair gel bottle KES50; baking powder per packet KES40; large plastic bowl KES120; small plastic bowl KES45. We also "shopped" at the open-air clothes rack and bought two mens' shirts for KES250 each. This was Stanley's gift from me.

The cats? Well, the photos are self-explanatory.
The custard? Well, on Sunday Grant asked if I'd make custard with the dessert. As I had a lot to do already I thought of refusing politely; instead I reminded him how my custard
often always turns out lumpy and horrid. He agreed and proceeded to make the custard. As I said, man-made custard!
Perfect custard made by a man
This afternoon, in Sue and Sharda's absence, I'll be visiting the school clubs on my own. I intend to share something each of the four clubs and will report back on my activities tomorrow.
