South African Home

Tuesday, November 25


On Friday I left grey and rainy London for a 6 week trip to South Africa.
My flight from Heathrow to Johannesburg was AWFUL as I sat next to the fattest man ever.  You know when you are looking for your seat, and can see someone who is spilling over his into the adjacent one and you just hope hope hope that your seat number doesn't correlate with the half a seat that he has a left available...and then it is a match. That was me. He then lectured me for 20 minutes on why there is no hope left for South Africa as a country - which is my worst kind of talk - and then told me he was so dirty from 32 hours in transit that he was actually itching. Delightful.  And that was before he told me all about how he dresses his cats up...and then insisted I see the photo's.
I am SO glad that Pete and I are flying back together! Nothing better than sitting next to my husband on a long haul flight.
Anyway after my flight arrived an hour and a half late in Jhb, Jen fetched me and we went straight to her Wedding dress fitting! I can't wait for her Wedding on the 20th of Dec :)
And then I caught up with some of my favourite girls for brunch (and Ken's lovely man), which was wonderful! Ah I miss my Jhb girls...
And then I ALMOST missed my domestic flight to Durban in the afternoon as we got stuck in traffic driving back to the airport which wouldn't have been the end of the world until I called  BA and they said if I missed the domestic leg of my flight I would also lose my return to London at the end of December! Oh my goodness - after Jen did some dodgy turns and flew down another highway I made it with seconds to spare! Such a relief!
 And now I'm back on my Parents farm!
How Amazing is my Mum's garden looking in the pictures above! Not one of these pictures is even edited...
I hope that you are having a happy week so far!
