South Africa

Well, the time has finally got here!

I'm off to SA tomorrow for a two week holiday.

I will see both of my sons, and I will be staying with my eldest son, and his (now) pregnant wife! Yesterday, Amy, my daughter-in-law, had her 16 week scan, and they told her it's a baby girl! They have named her Olivia! So sweet!

I am so excited. It will be fantastic to see my family, and all my old friends.

I'll keep you posted if anything exciting happens.

Cheers!!!

Great news, Have a great trip and enjoy to the fullest.

PS After reading another thread (something from an MJ drawing I think) can you please check your luggage before returning only apparently there have been reports of Rhinos jumping fences so I wouldn't like you to accidentaly increase the UK wild Rhino population! Or get an excess luggage charge! ;-)

Its so great to catch up with missed family especiall in the prelude to such a great event.

Hope you have a truely wonderful time

Thanks so much. I'll try and make sure I don't bring a rhino back! Would an elephant be better? He he!!! 😃😃😆

heffalumps are very useful for clearing unwanted trees, and moving heavy object etc. however they add even more weight to the hand luggage and there is a ban on the import of ivory so you could have a bit of bother coming through customs! Mind you there is a ban on Rhino horn as well.

Still have a brill time. :-)

Well you could always bring back a picture of the scan for the mantelpiece.

It's so brilliant the anticipation of grandchildren.

My grand daughter is just a week away from her 5th birthday and seems only minutes ago that she was born. Mind you when we babysit (often) the delight is sometimes edged with tiredness. You forget just how demanding a little one can be but oh what a joy.

Of course I am lucking that my granddaughter is only 3 miles away from home so I don't have to run the gauntlet of Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh my!

Just the odd Fox, Badger or Rabbit.... don't sound quit as exciting but hay no fence trampling or tree uprooting lol.

;-) :-)
