Some quick flashes of the activities of our family over the past week or so:
Professor Pieter Scholz winning R5000 for his short story ‘Silent Death’, at the recent Book Fair we exhibited at, which prize he donated to …
- … Dlinza Forest boardwalk, in Eshowe, KwaZulu Natal. He is passionate about its beauty. It is on our list!
A winning exhibit (gold with laurel) at the recent Natal Witness Garden Show in Pietermaritzburg
The grandkids were a bit bored with plants and stuff, but enjoyed the Kids’ Zone where there were animals to pet … and this to sit on!
Nearer home, and a different day of the weekend. No, not semaphore. She is busy piloting …
Also a good spot for all of us to ride our bikes.
It is handy – in fact I left home on my bike at the same time as the car carrying the rest of the mob did, and got there first!
And now this evening there was a Gala at R’s school, where all comers in the various age groups were invited to try out against the Squad. Here J inserts herself into the picture as her sister prepares for her first start.
R made quite a splash! She successfully defended her squad position – no wannabes beat her – with a fourth in backstroke, third in breaststroke, and she looked as though she had won the freestyle – it was very close. Anyway, it turned out that she had to settle for a third place there as well. If that splashy dive of hers in the nearest lane had been a little bit better …!
