Leave a comment

Holidays are about experiences and people, and tuning into what you feel like doing at that moment. Enjoy not having to look at a watch.  Evelyn Glennie

I started my leave on a bit of a low.  I manage to lock my car keys in the boot!  What a silly thing to do.  Fortunately for me, the locksmith at the centre was able to assist by “breaking” into my car to open the boot from inside.

The following day we made our way to the Johannesburg Zoo, this was a first for all of us.  And a pleasant change from where we would normally go – Pretoria Zoo:

On the 23rd of December we made our way to the Pilanesberg National Park and camped in the Bakgatla camp for 3 nights.  As a family this was our first real experience of camping and despite the massive thunder-storm and loads of “goggas” – we had a marvelous time!

Logan’s birthday was spent at Sun City’s Valley of the Waves – all 3 kids enjoyed it though roughly – but this I will save for a next post!

What was your festive season like?
