Charlie's Bird

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


…so my nieces (2 of them) wrote their matric exams at the end of 2016, and we have been waiting with bated breath for their results. One of them, let’s call her AN wrote an IEB matric, and got her results at the end of last year; she did fantastically, scoring 3 distinctions, and she has secured an entry to UCT this year, doing a degree in property management. The other, AM (my brothers really messed our family around giving their daughters very similar names!) wrote a departmental matric and has scored the best marks I think anyone in the family ever got, with 6 out of 8 subjects in the 90%’s! so between the 2 of them, we have 10 distinctions, I think that is amazing! AM is waiting to hear if she will be accepted to study medicine (why she hasn’t been accepted yet, makes me wonder…). I am so very excited that someone on the family will share my profession – someone who will understand medspeak! Yay!

Watching these beautiful young ladies grow up, and watch them going through these big choices is such a privilege. I really hope that Aunty Birdie has given them sound advice. It is such a tough thing, choosing something now, which will define so much of your future, flip!

One only wants to see them fly and achieve and be happy. That damn elusive happiness we all chase, I really hope they find it.
