Yes, it really is me.
Dragging myself in from the wilderness.
I have a busy ten days ahead of me.
ML arrives for ten days, tomorrow.
She will be staying at the 5 star hotel I blogged about.
She has booked me in for next weekend.
I will have that gorgeous room and shower all to myself.
I can’t wait.
I have mixed feelings about the ten days.
On the one hand am really looking forward to spending time with her.
On the other hand it is going to be hectic.
I have prepared some meals for all the folk here but will still have to rush home to get things going for them.
Then off to take ML shopping and sightseeing.
Having supper with her and then coming home every night.
Not too far but still a half hour trip.
On the upside it will be ten glorious days of doing stuff.
Not sitting in this damn room.
I saw something the other day that could only happen in Africa.
A big black ox trotting along the national highway.
Holding up all the traffic.
He was being followed by a police car.
Attempting to herd him.
I do hope it was a good cop.
We DO have some of them.
Unlike the ones who drag taxi drivers to their death behind the van.
Or shoot 34 striking miners.
Or beat a protestor to death(and get away with it)
Or are hand in glove with drug dealers.
Or head hi-jacking gangs.
Or rape suspects in the police station.
I could go on and on but it is too depressing.
Yes, I hope the Ox got a good cop.
Or he would have been turning on a spit the next day.
Rump on the run.
Now I need to go and sort out lunch for the family for tomorrow.
I will be going straight to the airport from work.
I don’t cook for inside over the weekends.
I have two lamb shanks simmering in the slow cooker.
Have just added baby garlic potatoes and fresh veggies.
It smells delicious!
I have missed you guys.
This time I will not lock the camera in the safe.
I WILL take pics of all the food.
