Winter wonderful

Durban is cold at the moment & I am loving it... winter in Durbs (as much as we ever get) is lovely clear crisp days with blue blue skies. I love it, the colours are sharper & everything seems so crisp & fresh.
I did dig out my "overseas" warm clothes that only get brought out either for a long trip or when its really nippy.
Mark flew into Durban this morning & both him & Steven are off fishing to Mboytie in the Transkei with a group of mates. They leave at 4am tomorrow and I love that the two brothers enjoy very similar sports etc & they have fun but to have both my boys(26 & 24 but still my boys) on the road together in one car just makes me a bit wobbly. I never show it or put a damper on any of their adventures but until I get a call or sms to say "we're here & ok" I do worry. They are very good at always contacting us & I am grateful for that. As a result the lounge has fishing gear of all shapes & sizes everywhere while they pack.
As the children are all here today & its a public holiday, they have decided to celebrate fathers day doing a dinner for Alan ( orchestrated by DD of course) & that means my kitchen already is in a mess but I love having them all home & even for a short while can enjoy the mess & noise !!!

Enjoy your public holiday there in Durbs...
I understand that no matter how old our children are they still our babies..
And the worrying...ah that I also understand.
It never ends does it.

I can understand you worrying about them. Hope your Father's Day dinner was good (Father's Day here is in September)
