Charlie's Bird

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


…weekend it was! From runs to meals to parties, phew!

Friday night was a quiet one, fortunately – we chilled at home, before my WWOTR training run on Saturday morning. What a good run it was, although very hot! I have discovered the joy that is toe socks, and am convinced that they will save my toes. I bid farewell to the nail that was hanging on by a thread on Saturday after the run, and so now the new one must grown, but I think I will be better off in the future with my toe socks! 15km with the girls – lots of laughing, lots of fun, always good.

After the run, there was a Christmas market to go and have a browse around, and then a birthday party for certain young lady to attend – off we went to a pony party, it looked like lots o fun was had by all, and the girls all loved their pony ride. In the evening, once again, I collapsed in a heap! It had been hectic! Sunday dawned another perfect day, so I took myself off for a run, met my family at our local breakfast spot – the only problem being that I am generally not very hungry by the time I get there… Anyway, breakfast, nippers for T, which was really leaker yesterday, because that weather was so gorgeous – and the kids started learning about boogy boarding! Then, we needed some groceries and finally I got home! Phew! Lupper was prepped, before I finally got to sit down! a quick braai in the early evening with my parents rounded out the weekend. It was good to see them, although every time I see my mom, my heart breaks a little more… She’s such a frail Dawny now, it’s so tough to see it…

Anyway, and now it is monday – up and at it, kids!

Phew, I’m tired just reading about it.
It is hard to see our parents get older. I remember my Mum painting the whole lounge on her own when we were younger and now she can barely shuffle out of her wheelchair and onto the loo.
