Morning all! Tea and ginger bics in the caravan as usual. Another cool morning but sure to warm up before long.

Good morning everyone from a very chilly bushveld. 2C is considered freezing in this part of the world.......which will, no doubt, amuse those of you in cooler climes :) At this time of the year you can tell locals from visitors purely by the way they dress....locals are muffled up to the eyebrows with scarves, gloves, boots and beanies - visitors wander around in T-shirts, shorts and sandals :whistle:

Have a good day all - rusks are in the oven; will distribute them to billy's blik and MM's cupboard when no-one is looking :twisted:

A very Good Morning everyone!

Sunny day here again after days of rain and awful gale force winds yesterday!

Hopefully it will warm up a bit again.

Busy week ahead, 240 slices of melba toast to make today! :wink:
then will work my way through the week as methodically as I can.

Do all have a marvelous Monday and week.

Good Monday morning everybody. Thank you all for the coffee and tea, ginger biscuits and rusks and breakfast. I took a picnic packet that contains very delicious sandwiches. That is plenty of slices of Melba toast to toast Elsa :slap:

Have a nice day everybody :gflower:
