Granny’s Sunday…so far.

Good Morning all.
I can’t believe I have not posted since Thursday.
I am really slipping.

One reason is that, on Friday, the bilious bug moved lower down.
Everything I ate or drank caused stomach cramps.
And we had to go to friends for supper on Friday night.
A good thing I have a high pain threshhold.
No cramps were going to stop me eating.
She is a wonderful cook.
I did, however, have a loo roll on the dashboard(mental note…it is still there)
Just in case, you know.
It wasn’t needed.
Or this post would have been a lot more interesting.

Yesterday was quite hectic.
16 year old was doing a breakfast at the school.
Part of her hospitality exam.
I thought breakfast….probably at about nine o’clock…so I also arranged to pick up elder son at the airport at 11:30.
Turns out breakfast was at TEN!
I was able to shovel a bit of food down and then I had to race off to the airport.
A forty five minute drive from the school.
My son got there about ten minutes before me but that was ok.

Younger son was also at the breakfast.
As sick as a dog(where does that expression come from?)
He suffers from asthma and he had flu.
He kept having to go outside to try and breathe.
He had not had a smoke for three days.
He was in a foul mood.
He went to the doctor, later, who said there is swine flu around although they have not announced it.
I phoned this morning to find out if he was foraging around in the dustbins.
He wasn’t.
Guess he has ordinary flu.
For some reason he didn’t find this amusing.
His sense of humour must be linked to his smoking.

17 year old is here.
About to cut the grass for me.
I knew there had to be some GOOD reason for having grandkids.

I nearly didn’t go to the beach this morning.
The wind was howling around the house.
But I couldn’t stand the look on Jasmine’s face.
It was lovely down there.
A bit breezy but not unpleasant.
Jasmine had a ball.

Now I need to go to the shops.
Enjoy your Sunday everyone.


  1. Glad you’re feeling better. I hate tummy bugs! Hope I don’t catch yours reading your blog. The wind is pretty hectic today. Have a lovely Sunday.

    • I think you are safe 40…it is a bug not a virus!!!

  2. So glad you’re feeling better today. Jasmine looks so happy there. Enjoy your shopping, or isn’t it that sort of shopping? Hugs xx

  3. Very glad you’re feeling better.
    Hope they cook you lunch today …

    • Hi Cindy….think elder son and family are coming here for supper.

  4. That water looks so tempting and Jasmine has such a big grin on her face that I can see her tail wagging!

    Ugh, don’t talk to me about shopping – I hate it. Last pre-op tests tomorrow. Then, if all’s okay, have to shop for 2-3 months’ basics – rice, toilet paper, meat, butter, Omo, etc.

    • Hi Adee…I have missed something…what op?

  5. hope your bug is really gone

    • Thanks Sidey…I think it has hit the road!

  6. Hi
    Hope you enjoy what is left of your sunday

    • Thank you Nzwaa….any day i get taken out for dinner is great!

  7. Hubby was telling me there’s quite a tummy bug going around in Richards Bay at the moment.

    Jasmine looks ecstatic in the water!

    • My son has it up here in Joeys…

      • It seems to be everywhere Adee….normal I think when the warm weather gets here.

    • Hi HP…Jasmine was in her element…sulking tonight…no walk today…not in this wind.

  8. Was starting to have withdrawal symptoms – no blog since Thursday!!! 🙂 Jasmine is such a lucky dog – she oozes happiness in that photo. Glad you’re feeling better. The bug has been doing the rounds up here in the mist belt as well. Have managed to avoid it so far – touch wood (taps head) – staff have been down with it.

    • Hi Wolf….I have had a couple of my staff off with it too…very annoying.

  9. Jasmine is a great influence on you. You should consult her more often! “Swine” and “dustbins” is a little subtle for anyone under 50, Granny!

    • I know Bud…very foolish of me!!!

  10. So glad your bug has flown! There’s nothing I hate more than tummy ills – sheer misery! Jasmine looks SO happy in the water! You’re both so lucky to live there.

    • Hello RD…I know….been here five years and still go WOW!!!

  11. That is really a lovely pic!Wish my grandsons were old enough to mow the grass……

    • Hello bb…don’t wish your life away girl!!!
