Morning all! Tea and ginger bics in the tent next to the river again today. Cool and overcast, but beginning to brighten so maybe the sun will break through before too long.

Good morning everyone.

If I look out my kitchen window, it faces sort of in the direction where you are staying EJ and there's lots of blue skies so I hope the clouds have burnt off by now.

Carol, nice to visit with both your sisters. I do hope the radiation treatment will go well for your little sister. Nice to have middle sister staying with her to look after her.
Have you managed to get the smell out of your freezer yet? What an awful, stinky job.

Have a great day, everyone.

I hope so too for EJ :thumbs_up: Any chance of bunny chows for lunch Stampie?

It is a stinky job to clean a freezer that hosted vrot meat for some time, sorry Carol :gflower: . If Hugh was not in Switzerland she would have given you a bottle of sweet smelling, smelling salts to assist with the job. I hope the Hugh’s are having the best of times.

A very Good Morning everyone!

Sun is slowly making its presence felt here!

Hope the radiation will go well for your little sis Carol!

How exciting to have another addition to the family shortly Tessa, hope all will go well for a safe delivery.

We were also "shut down" from 8 to 10pm last night and my son even later at the next stage until midnight!

After a busy but nice weekend I will try and catch up on chores and get ready for the packing to start! 8)

Do have a marvelous Monday and week. :thumbs_up:

Good afternoon everybody.

It is a warm autumn day here. Elsa and Stampie and EJ and Sparrow how is the KZN weather? And the Cape Town weather Philip, Trrp, Billy, Tessa, Dinkybird? And in Worcester Matthys? And Bloem Carol? We will not know southern Kruger weather as EJ is on travels nor Limpopo weather as PNF is also travelling. And the weather in Brecons Beacons National Park and Bexleyheath Val and Dellac? No matter what the weather is where you are may you all enjoy the remains of the day :thumbs_up:
