Today’s challenge is a Valentine’s Day Special, and the challenge word is ‘Special’.
GC and I don’t normally set a Friday challenge, but hey, it’s a special day so why not. And on this special day we would like you to tell us or show us what is special to you. It could be a colour, a flower, a meal, a place or a person, in fact, it could be anything at all.
Mummy and Daddy went out last night for a Valentine’s dinner. Ouma, looked after me. I had lots of fun. My Ouma is special and I am special to her too. We love each other.
Today’s prompt is from Di at Pensitivity101 and is a “Love Song for a Parent”.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “(un)pack.” Use “pack” or its opposite in your post. Have fun!
My dad knew how to pack a vehicle. We were three girls, my parents two dogs and a live chicken. My dad packed the car with space for all of us and heaps of luggage for three weeks on holiday in the Lowveld in the old Transvaal (today Mapumalanga) into our car. Those days it was at least a four-hour drive to our destination. He also knew how to pack a bag or suitcase. He’ll first fold up everything and then pack it so everything fits in no matter how much you want to take with you. I learned how to pack while watching my dad and today I can also pack a lot into a suitcase.
