Charlie's Bird

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

Weekend pictures

…as promised. Thandi had a whale of a time with her cousins. We arrived to a late dinner on Thursday, and on Friday morning when she realised that they were heading to school, she cried! ‘But Mom, why do AnneJulia have to go to school?’ (she always melds their names into one – Anne and Julia)And as mch as I tried to reassure her, she was not happy with the idea of her cousins going to school without her. Sweet girl. Calm was restored when she went with my brother to fetch those cousins from school in the afternoon. Another dinner out, with Haagen Das ice cream for dessert, and the girls were posing!


Then on Saturday, it was tine to visit the zoo. She had such a wonderful time, loved seeing the animals and especially the cheeky monkeys and lazy lions. 083 055   058 086 The JHB zoo is really nice, with a lovely area with some rides and some picnic areas – she played up a storm on the jungle gym, then got a turn on the planes and the ferris wheel.

All to soon it was time to head home on Sunday. Once we were home and settling her into bed in the evening, she had a good cry, ‘Because Mom, my heart is very very sore, I really, really love my cousins, and I miss them!’ Cue the tears from me… (she’d be an awesome big sister)
