Thanks Shanni for todays blog pics.
Mahalia was also running about with her camera.
They can be pretty dangerous creatures behind one!!
Sally & I were trying to have a quiet peaceful conversation but kept on having cameras shoved under our noses!!
It was about now that we banished them!!
It was nice and quiet this morning.
I thought I was first up at 6:45am but met Shanni at the door heading to the shower.
I played on Facebook till she was out.
Azzan was snoring his wee head off when I came downstairs but I soon heard him come down and go straight to the piano to do his practice.
He was either half asleep or being extra diligent!
The day would not make up it’s mind as to what it was going to do.
I first thought it was going to be hot but by the time I got out of the shower it looked so threatening I decided not to hang out the washing.
We dressed in warm clothes but by mid morning the sun was out from behind the clouds and I was wishing I had some cooler clothes.
But it played peek-a-boo all day and I was grateful for the warmer attire by the evening.
We loaded into the Safari and headed into the city around 8:30am.
It was a good time to go to the market cuz it was early enough to still find close parks.
The children had never been to the Saturday market before so it was fun showing them around and exploring all the different stalls.
Of course Poppi caused a stir as Shanni walked around with him on her shoulder.
He was being a bit of a mischief.
Several times if I got too close to Shani he would hop over onto my shoulder.
That was okay, but he also did it to complete strangers a couple of times.
We are obviously going to have to some serious bird talking to him about stranger danger
It was soon near 10am so we drove over to Chipmunks and I signed the kids in and drove back to Equilibrium where I had an hours massage booked.
I had a consultation with Marta the massage therapist and then had the best massage ever.
She has magic finger and could really feel my pain areas.
She devoted the last 15mins to my shoulder.
It was wonderful.
I have booked two more sessions next week
I zipped back to pick up the children – they had had loads of fun there.
Then we headed straight out to Richmond to drop them off at Sally’s.
She took the 3 girls out to pony club at Edencourt.
Then she and Azzan went for coffee.
He told me tonight that it was an adults cafe and the only children’s drinks were very milky and he knew I wouldn’t like him to have it so he didn’t have a drink – he just ate half Sally’s cake instead!
Sally was most amused at his questions and conversations.
Apparently he asked her if evolutionists celebrate Christmas.
When she said that some probably did he remarked that that was pretty stupid cuz they dont believe in Jesus and it is sposed to be celebrating his birthday.
Outa the mouths of babes!!
Tonight Sally took my 3 and her 2 to ‘Saints and Angels’ at Richmond Baptist Church.
They had a wonderful time.
Here is Azzan on the bouncy castle.
Meanwhile I went on out to Hope Community Church and joined the Refresh Conference that had begun that morning.
I got there in time for lunch.
The rest of the day was filled with various speakers.
It was a good afternoon.
We had a delicious dinner and were served and waited on by some lovely home school young ladies.
They did an excellent job of the food.
We were nearly at the end when I saw my phone which was switched to silent was calling from home.
So I snuck outside to answer it thinking it must be something important.
It was Anson calling to say he couldn’t find the gravy mix
It went on far later into the evening than I thought it would so by the time we had supper and talked some more it was nearly 10 by the time I got back to pick up the children.
Mahalia stayed another night with Kashana.
Azzan & Shanni chatted and told me all about their day on the way back here.
All in all a good day all round.
Thanks Sally, so much for looking after my troops.
Looks like Azzan has found another female to cuddle
It is now midnight so I am going to go sneak the hottie out from Azzan and refill it for me.
I need something cosy to cuddle while I am out here all on my lonesome
