10 days to go to the Fifa World Cup opens

I am not sure why but Durbanites have been gripped by soccer fever, we really do support our events, contrary to the common belief we are indifferent. Anyway as well as Football Fridays when we all(all businesses, schools etc) wear soccer shirts & jeans ( mostly the bright yellow Bafana bafana ones) the cars & houses are adorned with different countries flags its really fun. Our laundries are decorated with a few flags & vuvuzelas & our staff love football fridays.
I know nothing about soccer/football except that its good for the city to embrace their events & give it some support. I have only just discovered that you can only buy Fifa "stuff as in memorabilia etc" in the country holding the Fifa WC - so I have gone out to buy shirts for my big nephews in New Zealand & blister packs of pens etc for all the others as its a one time event for us & its fun.
Alan has got the all clear to walk around now for short bursts as the doctor put it & is loving being mobile - as are we !!! He went up to Joburg with Steven being his chaffeur & they had a good business session but his feet were very swollen & he was exhausted - LOL as was Steven ! Anyway he's on the mend although will not be driving for another 6 weeks.

Busy busy

I have been busy in everything I do lately, not sure why I feel as if I am a hamster on a wheel & can't get off....... I am also back at school for the last two months which is also taking up a lot of my time even though I come & go as I please.
I have been chief cook, nurse & bottle washer 24 /7 - its more the fact that Alan is not sick but not mobile either that is the most frustrating for him and I. Alan has been incredibly good during all this & its as tiresome for him as me. The children also have been super they come & visit him & keep him company. Steven is driving him around today & Alan says to see the outside world is great. Hmmmm we do take an awful lot for granted.
Last night I escaped to craft & started a mosaic which was great fun, the company fantastic & just so nice to be away from home - all 3 hours of it.
The worst thing about being house bound is that we have watched quite a bit of tv, especially cooking programs that I have enjoyed but now am experimenting in the kitchen & Alan is my quinea pig..................we invited the children for dinner over the weekend & Steven said to Alan, "Dad is it safe food !!!!!!" LOL .....we all survived

Sore feet

Well Mighty Men was awesome according to our men & what a blessing. Cath & I went to Shalom for the Sunday family service & that was "Incredible", to hear 400000 plus men singing & praising the Lord is wonderful.

Straight after that my DH had foot surgery or should I say feet surgery, both feet done at once, well he has been very brave since coming out of hospital but its tiring for me & I am not whinging just letting off steam at least he is allowed up to the loo now - a huge blessing for both of us. Still after seeing the specialist not allowed(another 10 days) to stand except for the loo & "bum breaks" as the doctor calls them just to get out of bed to allow yourself a break. He has not complained & I know he's been really sore & its very frustrating for him as he is not sick.

We need to do a business trip to the south coast this coming week & the doctor has given him permission to go as long as he relaxes & does not walk, well thats going to be fun !!!!

Its May the 1st !!! Can you believe this year ? I hope everyone has a great May day & enjoys their long weekend.
