Balloon antics in the office

Mama's office became balloon central when our kids had a whole lot of fun trying their hand balloon modelling.
The balloons were a gift from Elina and Joona Kokko, from Finland, and the little Kenya boy they have adopted, Marius.
With Mama and Uncle Ronald joining in,  the kids had a balloon each to model into the most creative shape.
Uncle Ronald showed his hidden talents as he helped turn balloons into hats!
There was lots of fun, more than a few bangs when balloons pooped mid-shape, and so much laughter.
When everyone had made their model there was a line=up to pick the winner with the honour going to Rukia's green goat!
Thank you Elina, Joona and Marius.

Building a Bright Future Appeal

                                                                      Please can you help us to build a bright future for our Happy House kids, now and over many generations to come?
We must raise the £15.000 we need to finish building our secondary school ready for opening in January 2016 when our first Class 8 Primary will be ready to move on.
The half built school holds their hopes and dreams.  It is their future.
We must also raise an additional £10,000 to staff and resource it for the first year to give us a chance to get it established. 
Please make a donation or hold a fundraising event if you can. Tell your friends, family and colleagues about how we are changing lives.
If you donate you know that every penny will go directly into the school build.  You can donate online at or by sending a cheque, made payable to Happy House,  to Elizabeth Gomm, Children of Watamu,  6 Burwood Drive, Blackpool, FY3 8NS
