What a stunning day.
I was down at the beach at twenty to six.
The sun hadn’t quite peeped over the mountain.
Everything was pink and pearly.
Not a breath of wind.
But cool air off the sea.
Which was a relief after the hot night.
I did NOT sleep well.
And I can tell…I keep having to correct my typing.
Fifteen minutes later all the colours had changed.
My son has just popped in to see me.
He lost his drivers licence and had to re-write the test.
After 20 years of driving.
They have come up with some ridiculous new rules.
He lost points when he did parallel parking.
He reversed in perfectly but he did not turn his indicator on when he straightened the car out.
I never do that.
Why would one have to do that?
Just who are you indicating to?
The parked car behind you?
The one with no-one in it?
That is just crazy.
I am darn sure I would not get my licence now either.
My brain is turning into scrambled eggs.
Rumour has it there is a meeting scheduled for Tuesday.
The big noises getting together to discuss giving me a contract.
I have no idea what to do.
I could save a nice sum of money in a year.(the half day salary will probably be small)
I wouldn’t have to say goodbye to my beautiful beach.
Or Cape Town.
Or my friends.
Or my kids(maybe that should be a down)
My Mother will be devastated.
In a year’s time I won’t have a half day Job waiting.
I will be a year older.
What do you guys suggest?
