Aren... and his Maths

An activity play-school

I have started going to Bal Bhavan (only once so far). They teach you many things, like creative writing, games, guitar, clay-modelling, puppet making and other things.
Bal Bhavan is in Campal (Panjim). It takes half-an-hour to get there.
I have joined clay modelling and guitar classes. And creative writing.
My brother calls it Bal Bum-bum, because he cannot pronounce it properly. He is four years old.

Looking forward to the church camp

The Saligao church camp is being held in Lourdes Convent, because our village church has been replaced. Repaired. They will be doing tee-shirt painting, and other things that I've not yet found out. Abigail, Delilah, Isabel, even my brother Aren will come with me for the camp. It starts on May 5, 6 and 7, or just after. It costs Rs 75 for each child to attend the camp.

Evenings at the swimming pool

In the pool

Aren at our small pool (not Vista do Rio).

Uncle Caje, my mother, my brother, Isabel and me all go to the swimming pool in the evening. The pool's name is Vista do Rio.
We go there at 4 o'clock and finish by 6.30.
The pool is in Porvorim. A girl named Monali from the same building where Isabel lives comes to the swimming pool with her father.
We all swim together. We swim in the big pool. We throw a one-rupee coin in the water, then we dive in and find the coin. Whoever finds the coin first is the winner. Isabel and me always find the coin. A girl named Trisha also comes there.
My father says that the pool takes a lot of water from the village-sides ....

My Nana gets sick

Sharbelle... and 'Aunty Felicia'

Nana with Sharbelle (her schoolmate's daughter).

My grandmother's name is Felicia Coutinho Noronha.  I call her Nana. She used to look after me, and take me to the convent. She liked me the best. I liked her very much.
But one day, she had a fall in the bathroom. We didn't know what happened. Then we took her to GMC Hospital and then they found out that her hip bone was broken.
She was supposed to have an operation, but it didn't happen. After a few days, she kept on getting sick. And more complications came up.
On April 21, 2008, she died at 3 o'clock in the morning. On that day was my admission. When I got up, my aunty and my grandfather were downstairs; my aunty was washing clothes.
On April 22, was her funeral, at 4 o'clock. We buried her at the Saligao cemetery. I felt sad.
