Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

MotherCity calling

…and we are back, a quick 36 hours in the MotherCity was fun, and now we are home again.

We flew down on Friday night to celebrate a friend’s 50th birthday. We arrived in cold and wind on Friday, spent Saturday chilling (in more rain) and flew home in beautiful sunshine to cold and wet home… Oh well, it was good to see friends, and celebrate! We stayed with TAFKAD, aka Aunty Donty, and Thandi warmed up nicely to her, we went from Aunty Donty Get Away! to Aunty Donty Where are you? Sweet child. She really copes well with all this travelling we subject her to. We got to see DRHF again and then had a great catch up with the birthday girl! LM is a special friend, who I met when I was specialising. She is an ultrasound specialist and we got to know each other very well. We spent lots of good times together and I have always felt so welcome in her home. So for her 50th she hosted about 20 guests in her beautiful home with a lovey little man running around with platters of delicious food (gorgons of kingklip – oh my word!!!!) and trays of champagne… Ah, lovely! LM did remind me that I had been the last to leave her 40th birthday party, so she expected a repeat performance that night – I have to say, we did not disappoint! Crawling into bed at 01h30, when you know the toddler will awake shortly is slightly terrifying. Eek! Oh well! A good sleep last night sorted that out!

And now the working week begins again… Oy vey…
