Morning all.

I have the kettle singing. There are fresh rusks and milk and cream available.

I am taking Michelle to the airport a little later. I am more anxious about the drive to the airport than her flight to the UK.

I do wish you all a wonderful week. :gflower:

Good morning all.

GEJ, you do have interesting wake up calls.

MM, sad day but I'm sure you're also happy and excited for your daughter. Drive safely.

The skies are grey but it's quite warm. I saw my first YBK yesterday. It's already halfway through August so they're a little late but maybe I've just not spotted them before. My son saw one about a week ago.

I picked some jasmine yesterday so the house has a lovely scent.

One of the ladies from our studio competed in the World Dance Master Competition in Blackpool over the weekend and came 2nd. So we are all very excited for her. I haven't heard how the rest of the South African team has done.

Wishing everyone a good Monday and a fantastic week to come.

Good morning Philip, Good morning MM thank you for the boiling the kettle and providing us with fresh cream and rusks on a Monday morning, Good morning GEJ in a caravan with a bush view, Good morning Billy, Good Morning Nkulu and Good morning Mischief. Good morning everybody still to rise and shine. Congratulations to the South African athlete who won gold at the 2016 Olympic Games. During a single day of the 1904 Olympics George Eyser won six medals, three golds, two silvers and a bronze despite having a wooden left leg. He lost his real leg when his leg was run over by a train. I will put the kettle on for Monday morning tea at 11. Good morning Stampie. Have a pleasant Monday everybody :gflower:

Hi everyone :gflower:

Sorry I've been missing but I had a bit of an accident :doh: I fell down some steps in a shopping center and broke my arm and cut my foot :doh:
It's a bit hard trying to type with my left hand and balancing my tablet at the same time :lol:

I'm serving tea and apple tart with cream under the palm tree on the beach, we are still there aren't we :dance:

Congrats to Wayde Van niekerk on a fantastic win :dance:

What have you all been up too while I've been away, hope all is well with everyone :k

See you all in a while :gflower:

Good morning everyone.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. It is time to get the swimming pool back to its summer glory state... so I've spent the majority of Saturday with my hands in the icy cold water trying to make sure everything works.... the cleaner pipe was too short so it didn't reach the far end of the pool and this I only discovered when I took off the sail... disgusting. Now I just need the merky water to clear up and then it needs to stay like that...

Eugene seems to have gotten over his croup and he is much better than before the weekend. But now hubby got the virus from him and he is sick in bed - same ailments - sore throat etc and the doctor said it is definitely a virus, so he needs to stay home and rest.

I received the shocking news today that one of the puppies I've sold to a lady (who took 2) had died last week. From what I gathered, her kids were running around in the house, playing and stepped/fell on the puppy and he died. My heart aches for the little fella - he was the small adorable little one. To make things more difficult for me, is that she asked if she could pay 1 puppy at the end of July and the other one on the 15th... today. She took the one that died first (and paid in full for him), and a week later the other one. She never told me about the accident - despite me asking her every other day (colleague) and if another colleague didn't tell me I probably wouldn't have known... But now I feel bad to remind her about the payment that is due for the other little fella :(

Lovely day to you all
