FAYE'S DIARY

12 - 27 September 2014

Faye's Diary As we come to the end of Week 2, I trust you are all settling down into the routines of school life (getting up early, sitting in traffic, homework, bathing, early to bed, and then doing it again!) and that your children are enjoying their new classes and teachers.
I’ve had a lovely week meeting new families at Braeburn Garden Estate and Braeburn Gitanga Road, discussing the transitional process from one country to another, and hopefully helping with settling in to life in Nairobi.  I have lots of information, so if anyone is interested, please let me know.
The schools are all very busy, so let’s see what we have coming up on the social scene.

Saturday 27 September
Braeburn Kisumu

After all that running, you are going to need a rest so dash back to BKIS to relax with good company, homely food, a few drinks and a bouncy castle.

Saturday 27 September
Braeburn Club, Gitanga Road
6.30pm – late

I am so excited!  Braeburn Club is going to host an introductory evening for CEROC, the biggest partner dance club on the planet!!  Sounds good, huh?  CEROC is very popular in Europe and the UK and it’s coming to Kenya and more specifically, to Braeburn.  A special rate for this evening only is Ksh500/-, which includes your Lifetime Membership Card.  A mixture of rock ‘n’ roll and salsa, this is a great way to socialise, have fun and stay fit.  Except we will be serving alcohol, so maybe the fitness bit is not entirely true.  Anyway, it is an adults only evening, but feel free to bring your friends!  My poor husband has no choice!  I will have more information for you as the time draws nigh.

Have a great weekend and I’ll chat to you soon.  Don’t forget to stay in touch via Facebook during the week!

Best wishes
