My son and his wife are interested in purchasing a small holding(farm). Last Monday we went out and had a look at a huge piece of land with incomplete houses and buildings. Too expensive and too much to renovate and complete.
Yesterday, Saturday, I got a call: “Hi mum, would you be interested to have a look at the place we had visited two weeks before?”
I am always game for an outing. This time the realtor would unlock the place so that we could have a good look inside.
We were a bit early. The realtor turned up a bit after eleven. She climbed over the wooden fence. Looked around and could not find the key. Bertus and Stella also climbed the fence to have a look for the key. They decided to put Bea’s push pram and Bea also on the other side.
Then came the best part!
I had to climb the fence too! At first, I could not even pull myself up to try and get my leg over to the other side. Then we decided that I should try the corner of the gate which was more stable. It helped. I could get up and my one leg over but I could not turn my other foot to get my other leg over the fence. I had to use my foot that was on the other side to push the other one around to get my leg over. Wow, at last, I landed on the other side. Bertus helped me from the outside and Stella from the inside.
We walked around the paddock. The next door cattle were looking at us in interest as if they could not believe their eyes!
I did not walk all the way around the whole piece of land. The lady found the key and we went inside. We took chairs outside and sat in the shade for Bertus and Stella to return.
Back again after a long hot walk. I enjoyed relaxing in the shade, very tranquil and peaceful.
