Weekend that was19 November , 2012
Firstly, after that bit about my parents’ neighbours my mother’s phone was stolen on Thursday. She thought she had accidentally left it at work but Friday morning saw that it wasn’t there. Between 17:00 Thursday and 08:00 the thieves clocked just over R2500 on her account, plus the R1000 excess. Ouch! There seems to be even more phone theft at the moment than in general before – do you think these phones make it into someone’s Christmas stockings as gifts? A bit impractical really since you can have the handset blocked.
We went to Nylstroom for the weekend to visit our friends on the farm (can I just add that Denise’s phone was also recently stolen and now some yahoo is updating profile pics on her old BBM!). I haven’t downloaded all the photos yet, but let me tell you that the girls (Nicola and Mia) had so much fun together!
Usually we only go visit in the cooler months, because Modimolle (a.k.a Nylstroom) is HOT AS HELL! And it was exactly that this weekend too. We got to spend a lot of time splasshing in the water and I think I must have drunk my body weight in cooldrink just to keep from spontaniously combusting. The farm is also one of the few places that has more spiders and bugs than our cottage.
It was totally worth it though – what a lovely weekend away. Thanks Denise and Riaan for having us over! We always have a great time when we’re there and this time was no different. We are very lucky to be able to do something like this with close friends like you guys. xxx
Ps! I’ll show you some of the pics once I’ve downloaded them – magic… :-D
