Photo of the day                                                                                  Saturday - Mrs Millers bought some balloons for the children to play with.  I should think that the whole village could hear the screaming, shouting and laughter!                                   Sunday - Boughton School - first view of the new Boarding at Batlagundu!                                   Monday - Two photos today.  At the new Boarding, I met five girls who had been at Karisalpatti five years ago and one girl who had been at Paravai.  I am going to see if I can find photos of them five years ago.                                                     . . . . .  and here she is.  I have found a photo of one of the five girls, five years ago, but Sr. Charles will help me with the others on Friday,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Tuesday - the crèche children!               Wednesday -  Some ladies knit tiny hats, jackets and bootees for the premature babies to wear.  We think of India as always being hot, but in the cold season especially at night, the babies need to be kept warm.                                                                                                                                                  Thursday -  Triplets!  arriving at the crèche by motorbike.  As you do . . . . . . .                                                                                                                 Friday - Meenakshi Temple - absolutely amazing and what you see below is just one corner of it!                                                                                                                                                                                                            Saturday - I've found another of the five girls from Karisalpatti five years ago.  So here she is now, second from the right.                                      . . . . . . . .   and here she is five years ago.  She is at the back, with her arms up, wearing a blue top.                                                                                   Sunday - the two youngest girls, Meethulakshmi and Mathumitha, at Thangachimadam with the poster signed by all of the children at St. Loys.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Monday - Mrs Millers is home.  She sent this photo of a tea-pot, toaster and pot of Marmite.
