Afrikaanse Tokkel: Bietjie Blaaskans


Blaaskans!

Die volgende vyf weke gaan ek bietjie laag lê.
Ek gaan weer n huis oppas vir vier weke. Die dame gaan bietjie vakansie hou oorkant die water. Sy het haar man bietjie meer as twee jaar verloor en is nog baie dwalende en soekende. Dit sal haar die wêreld se goed doen.Sy gaan met n toergroep en n niggie van haar. Daar is ook n ou Boarder Collie van sestien jaar. Sy is heel lendelam in haar agterlyf. Ouderdom is besig om haar in te
haal. Die dame het n mooi brief aan die veearts geskryf dat as Meggie nie meer lekker beweeg nie en pyn het moet hul haar maar uitsit. Sy gee my toestemming om die besluit saam met veearts te neem. Ek hoop van harte die hondekind hou uit tot haar ou mies weer terug is.
Trompie gaan natuurlik saam en ek hou duime vas dat hy nie te ontwrig voel nie. As die twee honde besluit om saam n gesang aan te hef terwyl ek by werk is sal ek maar n ander plan moet maak. Dalk geniet die twee mekaar so sodat hul nie omgee om vir tye alleen te wees nie.
Eintlik wil ek bietjie wegbreek van blogland af want dit lei my aandag te veel af en ek kom by niks uit nie. Ek is ernstig besig om aan my Memoirs te werk. Ek wil die vier weke die tyd wat ek nie by die skool is gebruik om my eerste deel te redigeer en te herskryf soos dit kom. Ek skryf net oor my eerste ses lewensjare en wil probeer om dit in November te publiseer.(Hierdie keer is dit ernstig. Nie sommer so-so nie soos vorige e-boeke nie!)Ek het al n hele goeie versameling bymekaar. Dan is dit nog die vertaal in engels ook. Dit vat baie tyd om die regte benamings, taalgebruik en uitdrukkings te gebruik.

Wel dis dan dit. Sal later weer ernsig terug kom na my blog wat laaste tyd baie afgewater was.

To my young friends out there: Life can be great, but not when you can’t see it. So, open your eyes to life: to see it in the vivid colors that God gave us as a precious gift to His children, to enjoy life to the fullest, and to make it count. Say yes to your life.

School Stories: Do you recognise the dog?


The second term is gone.

Half year reports have been handed out.

Some are excited to come back next term.

Some don’t feel that good!

The last three weeks of the term in the Before School Class we tried our hands at making dogs using a toilet roll six egg holder cups and some string, cotton, wool or in this case some raffia.

Only one ended up the wall.

Hopefully, we will see more next term(children were very slow in finishing them off)

Footbridge over railway, Lower Hutt

 

 

If you’re gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don’t pretend that you don’t want me
Our love ain’t water under the bridge
If you’re gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don’t pretend that you don’t want me
Our love ain’t water under the bridge
Say that our love ain’t water under the bridge

Water Under the Bridge

Baby Talk: Home sweet home


After six weeks away from home the girls had a lot of sleep to catch up on. It was summer in London and they came back to a cold and frosty New Zealand last Monday.

I visited the girls on Thursday. Beatrix was still sleeping and I did not see her.

Today I went for a cup of tea. Bea was her busy self. I could not take good photos of her because she kept on moving and watching my phone. The light wasn’t that good too.

Here she is!

One week and she will be 6 months!

Cooking Spree


The staff of the school had a wonderful evening out on Saturday.

We went to an Azian cooking school.

Everything was ready for the cooking!

The session started 6:30 pm.

The instructor/tutor/chef demonstrated

what we had to do to make a perfect meal.

We first made spring rolls.

Then the main meal:

pork, lemon grass and chilli(which I did not use).

On the plate was a cup of rice and fresh lettuce.

It was very tasteful and delicious to eat.
