Happy Birthday Dibble!
Three yesterday… and apparently off to Africa on Sunday as Tearfund’s youngest volunteer!
That probably needs some explanation…
Last week, Dibble joined some of his friends in a 24 hour swimathon to raise money for one of Tearfund’s clean water projects in Uganda. Not that he actually swam non-stop for 24h, but he was there at the start and finish, and managed about 20 lengths altogether, though 15 of those were aided by hitching a lift on the back of Mrs DHG’s costume!
But he managed to raise over £300 for the project – well done Dibble!
Anyway, this evening, while settling down into bed, the converstation went something like this:
“Dibble, you’ve had a busy day today – you need to go to sleep now and get lots of rest ready for tomorrow.”
“Yes, daddy. I go to Africa”
“You’re going to Africa? When?”
“I go to Africa on Sunday.”
“I see. Are you going by yourself?”
“No, I going with doglet”
“Right, so you’re going to Africa on Sunday with doglet. Why?”
“I going to bring them some clean water to drink!”
There’s not a lot you can say to that!
