Granny’s Sunday Snippets


Good Evening All.

A steroid update.
Only four more of the little fluckers to go.
And then NEVER again.

I put on my jeans today and was pleasantly surprised to find they still fit.
I had the feeling I had got the size of a house.
Maybe they have stretched.

I went through,this evening, to meet the bloggers at the food Indaba.
It was held in a village about ten kms from where I stay.
Although I have been to Noordhoek before I had not been down to the beach.
It is stunning.
I intend to go down next weekend and take some photos for you.

It was so nice to see blogger friends again.
I have met such great people through blogging.
We had some champagne and some giggles.
All in all a good time.
Once again I forgot to take photos.

Talking about photos.
Look at the colours in this next one.

Isn’t that amazing.

Tomorrow is my younger son’s 40th birthday.
Forty years ago I was lying in hospital waiting to give birth.
They thought my afterbirth was going to come first.
Which can be fatal.
I had been therre for two days and was fed up.
I told the doctor I had changed my mind and was not going to have the baby after all.
I wanted to go home.
He finally induced the birth and out popped this beautiful ten pound baby.

My son….you gave me years of incredible heartache and pain.
But you have cleaned up your act miraculously.
I am proud of you.
I love you.
Happy birthday.

And now I am off to bed.
Hope I don’t dream of giving birth.
