Goodness Grape Juice

Just where in South Africa on the Highveld does it rain in winter?? We have dry winters. The grass turns brown, the bulbs hide away. The Seasons, they are a changing!

Them clever blokes/okes/guys are onto something.

Just imagine a sunny glorious day, on Christmas Day in the UK and it’s a bleeding freezing day in South Africa.
Slipper socks have come out of moth balls, DH wants a hot water bottle and I have a snuggle blanket about my shoulders and a heater at my feet. I AM AFRICAN and do not like the cold – period, full stop or whatever it’s called nowadays. Oh that I could win the lottery and follow the sun!!

Oh what a day!! tra…la…la…la… I had errands to run for the builders and then had a badly needed cup of tea with my delightful friend Rose before heading off to do the dreaded weekly grocery shop. She gave me a beautiful new stamp! So generous of you Rosie, thanks again.
I must tell you that she is a very talented and creative scrapper. Her layouts are stunning!! I just have to work a little harder to get her hooked on ATCs!!!
We have my DH’s brother from England staying with us for a few days. Unfortunately he couldn’t bring his family with this time. Such a pity, because I miss my SIL something terrible. It’s just plain lousy living so far apart.
I hear 3 grumbling male tummies. Have to run ……!
Have a wonderful, relaxing and great weekend !
P.S. The best vitamin for making friends …….. B1
P.P.S. Thanks so much for the comments and the encouragement.
