Fishy Tales

Vetchie's Beach with competition sponsors etc.

My lot!

Howard College after the Easter Service - the gardens are lovely.

Being Easter weekend means its the annual fishing competition in Durbs ! Which means our youngest son is up at 4am every morning as well as we are because Dad drops him & his jet ski off at the Durban Ski Boat Club before five to be launched with hundreds of other mad fishermen !!! Dad drops him off so he doesn't have to worry about parking his truck etc - still spoiling him at 25 !!!! He lives up the road from us & its easy for Dad to just jump in as he comes past - I don't think either of them would have it any other way but I would love to sleep in for once LOL.

So while we went off to a beautiful sunise Easter service at Howard College steps (UKZN uni) we came back to be his support. I really thought our days of seconding in competitions, bike races, marathons etc were over but I am constantly reminded its never over.

So we spent most of the afternoon at the beach with numerous others, I must admit it was cool but still there are children playing & swimming in the water & it was lovely to see so many boats & people enjoying the beach.

There were lots of new "toys" on show & I cannot get over how many men(including mine) can drool over, motors, boats, safety equipment, radios etc but they did & do.

Still it was great to see the enjoyment of all, we walked & chatted to a lot of boats beached on the shore all the same story - not many fish & a multitude of explanations ! LOL.

What a week take 2

Ok deep breaths;

  • DH had an accident on Wednesday between Izilgolweni & Harding - remote rural area, he was very blessed & is at home alive , not so for his trusted LDV. Not a good phone call.

  • My sil's Dad passed away after a debilitating illness. Not a good phone call.

  • My best friend has become resistant to her chemo therapy & both tumours have increased in size. Not a good phone call.

  • On thursday my DH & DS were involved in a fender bender in son's LDV. Whew not good.

It was really a trying week but onward we go & I hope everyone has a fabulous Holy week leading up to Easter & a Christ filled break. We need it.

Yay its Friday.

I am babysitting DD's favourite bears as she is in the process of unpacking boxes stored while she lived in the UK ( 2 years ago !!!!). She is going to take them to her house soon & the rest of it stacked now in the spare room.

Whew I am so glad its Friday, firstly my boys including DH have gone off to Harrismith to have a hunting weekend, I know the farm is wonderful but I decided to stay at home alone !

Just to catch my breath & have some peace & quiet, I love my boys dearly (including most of the friends too) but am just wanting some down time. Its already peaceful & quiet, my domestic is finishing off to also go home & start her weekend. DD visited to see if I wanted to go out with her tonight to a movie - no thanks.

Bubble bath, candles & a good book.

Eating when I feel like it & of course a clean tidy kitchen.

Chilling out & just doing what I want to do yayyyyy.

Hope everyone's weekend is great.
