Well those of you that know me, know that I try my hardest to be patient, but long before our annual migration to SA, I start my TR!!!!

We will be flying out of Cardiff Airport on Nov 14th 2013, and after a few days on the Highveld, and then on the KZN North Coast, we will be driving up to Phalaborwa for nearly six months in our little rented bush cottage, that is 2kms from the Phala Gate!!!!!

Last year was very special, because our daughter and new hubby, came out to SA on an extended honeymoon, and spent 5 weeks with us from early Dec to mid Jan, and this year I am delighted to say that our son is coming with us for the whole six months!!!

He has recently joined the forums as "Crested Chick" and has not been back to SA since 1995.

He was actually born in Joburg, while Dungy was working for AECI in The Carlton Centre, but we returned back to the UK, when he was six months old!!!

He has had a few difficult years, and life has been hard for the whole family, but I am so pleased to say, that all is now coming right, and we are so looking forward to this special time together in the bush, where I know the whole family will be completely healed!!!

Countdown is 105 sleeps until the taxi arrives to take us to the airport!!!!

I will pop in here from time to time before we leave, and then I do hope that some old friends and some new, will join us on our amazing journey to take a chick back to his nest!!!!

Thought I would remind you of some of the friends that we met last year.

This was the view from Letaba Restaurant during the 2013 floods!!!!
The week before it has been an almost dry riverbed, and two weeks later it was almost dry again!!!
