I wish I could summon up as much ambition!!

NB: Government Health Warning !


This is a warning to all of you out there about to rush out to the gym on a Monday morning - Obviously you shouldn't do it and should stay in bed for the extra hour instead, so that the rest of us won't feel guilty!

'Peaceful Elections' .... ?

This sign is up in the middle of one of our main roundabouts on Uhuru Highway in the centre of Nairobi, and has been there since before Christmas.

Do you think someone knew something was up already?

- otherwise why was the government offering us "Peaceful Elections" wishes back then? Surely we he had no inkling that our elections would be anything other than peaceful at the time?

I'm on a toilet roll ....

I'm on a toilet roll here as you can see ........... ER SSSSORRY BAD PUN, but hey it is Friday !

Anyway as you can see from above photo, if you're thinking of doing up your bathroom I found a fab place where you can buy yourself a toilet. May have had previous owners of course and could even perhaps have fallen off the back of passing lorry, but no matter, a toilet all the same!
If anyone's interested in purchasing said item, please send an email to
and i'll be sure that someone gets back to you soonest with their full catalogue !

You'll be amazed what gets nicked in Nairobi!

This is the cistern cover from one of the loos in one of our shops here in Nairobi. We have had three of these ceramic covers nicked can you believe, so now have come up with this smashing 'bolt your cistern cover on' design because I am absolutely fed up replacing them. It's a bit of a nightmare for our plumber but hey, he'll get over it!

Was just thinking - do you think i should patent this design and sell the idea worldwide and make myself damn rich and famous - or is this issue of rushing off with the toilet cover stuck up your jumper just peculiar to us?

(We did originally try an alarm that detected movement if the cover was lifted up, but we found this didn't work as we kept getting false alarms when people lifted the lid to wash their hands in the cistern, although please note we DO have a sink with soap and a hot air dryer, so not quite sure why people will insist on washing their hands in the cistern, but there you go!)

Don't Pee Here !!

I found this sign pinned to a tree outside the Mbagathi District Hospital near Kibera Slums.
How i understand it is if you would like to pee to the left, or to the right, or even perhaps behind the tree, that is probably absolutely fine but whatever you decide ...

Nairobi in crisis

Right now as all of you around the world must know. Our country is in crisis.

However we are making good use of the landlord's facilities seeing as we are housebound.

This is my exact view as we speak.

It could be worse!

Happy New Year!
