Birthday Celebrations Overcooked to the point of Burnout


We are about to get another electricity load shed, so I’d better post or give up the ghost.

The past week has been manic with party-time for the two granddaughters and other relations and friends who are inconsiderate enough to have been born at round about the same time of the year.

    We,ve been lucky here in Joburg. No load shedding for sometime now. 4,5 hours each time is a real pain in the @$$. Happy birthday to all the celebrants.
