Friday was my cousin Shaun's birthday and we were joining the family and some friends for dinner in Bedfordview. Just as we were about to leave, the heavens opened. We decided not to go on the highway as it was very busy, so we went through town - that's right. P took us through Jo'burg city centre. It was scary to say the least! It poured with rain AND we got lost, as Commissioner Street has become a one way since the last time P was in town!
... ... and there was STILL a fair amount of traffic! We were a little late for dinner, but we had a stunning evening - we always do! It's wonderful catching up with the family and getting to meet new friends!
The birthday boy, Shaun and me!
Stacey flew into Durban this morning and will be spending a week with my folks. She has a two week break before starting her exams, so will spend some time down there, studying and a little relaxing before coming back to face her papers!
Alexandra starts her final matric exams on Wednesday. I am sure she is going to do very well! It's going to be really strange having TWO children finished with school! She is going to study dress design next year and I have no doubt that she is going to make a huge success of that.
As for P and I, we're having a quiet week! Friday I am off to Thabazimbi with my book club friends! I have no doubt we're in for a fabuous week-end and I will have plenty to tell next week!
We ended off our week-end at Rusty Hook - what better way than this beautiful sunset!
