Seems like my boss has fallen asleep in his office, so Im using the time to start this report
hope he does not wake up while Im posting
For those who are not of fb a short introduction....a week before I left for KTP I took Adorable (Adore and Rable, my Yorkies) for a walk. They do not like cats and as it is said that 50 years ago Doha was called the Rat city due to so many rats around, they imported cats to get rid of the problem
but now the rats are gone and we have thousands of stray cats on all the streets. Im usually very careful when I take them out, unfortunately I did not see the stray cats under the car and they went for it and in the process pulling me off my feet and down the step
this resulted in me tearing the ligaments in my knee and now I was handicapped (with a huge brace around my knee, off the cricket team and wondering how I was going to manage driving in KTP
I made it in one piece to Jhb (OR airport) and was met by my very good friends VVSG and SO and click click. The plan was to divide my luggage between the two and then I drove with click click to Upington. She very gratefully decided that she would drive all the way so that I could rest my leg
The road was good, a few stop and goes which I use to rather smoke outside instead of inside the car (although I had a few inside too
A little bit of rain on the way, but by the time we wanted to stop so I could feel the rain it had stopped
We had booked a B&B for the night in Upington and I was very glad and very tired as I had not slept for almost 36 hrs.
We had a few beers on our patio, hamburgers and then got to bed, ready for the early morning shopping etc.
We left the B&B just before 9am as I had to pick up my car from Upington airport and only then could I go and do my shopping as there was absolutely NO space in the other cars for anything. I booked a Kia Sportage, but my booking said or similar...I arrived and was given a Nissan Qashqai which looked good had more than enough space and quickly transfered my luggage, coolerboxes, fridge etc in my car and we left for shopping at PnP. 2 trolleys later a quick stop at the bottle store for 8 cases of beer and 6 bags of ice and I was on my way to KTP with a car filled to the roof!!!
