Sunrise taken from the hotel.
I have just checked when last I blogged.
THREE weeks ago.
My daughter and grandson went back home.
Daughter with a very sore finger.
She slammed it in the front door.
She will lose the nail.
Grandson was still very unsure of me when they left.
Though he liked my brother.
Actually, he seemed to like everyone except me!
I will survive the rejection.
I have also seen my eldest son, my daughter in law and my 8 year old granddaughter.
They flew up here.
Spent one night and then hired a car and drove to East London.
Spent one night there and came back here for a night and flew back to Cape Town.
It was wonderful to see them.
On the other hand my son is hugely overweight and I am very worried about him.
My daughter is far too thin and I am concerned about her.
Does one ever stop worrying about one’s kids?
Also, Mex and I spent FIVE glorious days at the five star hotel.
It was wonderful
Oh that shower…..
I showered at every opportunity.
When I win the lottery I shall buy a piece of ground overlooking the sea.
Then I shall build a bathroom.
THEN I will think of the rest of the house.
Talking about the lottery.
On Friday I got three numbers AND the powerball.
Two numbers off 20million.
I won the grand sum of R443.00.
A practice run for the big one.
Can’t put this old heart under too much strain.
I would be very pissed off if I won and had a heart attack!
Yes, it has been a time of reunions.
Last weekend some old friends down for the long weekend with their kids and we had coffee.
Yesterday, I met my best friend for coffee.
She and her husband are on their way back to Cape Town after visiting the family farm.
I am meeting her for lunch tomorrow.
We have been friends for 55 long years.
I love her to bits.
Seeing everyone has helped the home sickness.
Or made it worse.
I am still trying to process that.
And finally, one just for Souldipper.
Part of the 100 elephants we were lucky to see.
