Well on our way!

We're half way through February, the girls are back at uni and college, and it feels as though summer is slowly slipping away. The mornings and evenings are definitley cooler, and the sun comes up later in the morning. I am feeling tired. It's been a while since I had some time off work and I think a few days are due. I am probably going to Sun City next week to spend some time with my friend Bev, who is flying in from London on Saturday morning. I think a few days with the girls will be good. P is planning his trip to Europe in April and yes, we're well on our way to the opening of the Word Cup! We haven't bought tickets for the World Cup because we're not great soccer fans, but we are looking forward to seeing our country fill up with tourists and we do hope they have a wonderful stay.

The year is moving, quickly! P and I need to sit together with our diaries - they are already quite full. We have a number of induction dinners, and charters to go to, and some of the places are rather far away. So its going to be a busy time for us. I have lots of things going around in my head at the moment. I think Stacey and I might go away for a couple of days while P is in Finland - it is her birthday week-end, so I think it would be good. We'll see! One thing I'm sure of, I need a holiday!

but anyone can start today and make a new ending!"
I think I am just about ready for a change!

This year really is going to be a hectic one for us all. Down this way is still fully blown summer days. We may need some rain, but lets not jinx summer yet.

Sounds like you have a very busy year ahead. Yipee for being half way through Feb...only a few more weeks of winter. This week is rather snowy, buy next week the forecast is all sunshine with the temps around 0C!! It we can push it up a couple of degrees the next week this snow will be melting.

I'm looking forward to the summer as we have had rain, rain, rain but mustn't wish my days away they are going to quickly as it is - yes, I think we all need our holidays :)

We also not soccer fans but will watch cause its in SA, we did watch as it was in Germany last time and did enjoy the whole atmosphere in this country during that time, so festive...we loved it, hope SA is as successful as Germany was.

Enjoy Sun City...never been there!!
