On Thursday night I managed to sort out a basket of "things" which I had on the patio which contained mail/catalogues/books/etc. I am delighted to be able to tick this one off the constant 'To Do List' ~ just in time for the recycling paper pick up on Friday morning.
Friday morning I was up and going early ~ At my desk by 06h50 and then the rush of the day started. My day consisted of preparing and then conducting three telephonic interviews (two STUNNING candidates ~ a lady from Metropolitan and a 24 y/o branch manager from ABSA) for our Dandaro Programme; telecon for this Programme then into a team meeting which was light and easy going; back to my desk to finish up some odds and ends and prepare for Monday and then out the door with my colleagues at 16h00. The traffic home was wonderful. Got home, made a card for Gordon, prettied up Mom's gift for him and then a quick clean up and out the door on the way to Gordon's party. We sailed all the way through until we got onto Hendrik Potgieter ... where it took us forever to move through two sets of traffic ligths as there was a traffic light out.
My darling brother-in-law Gordon turned 50 on Thursday and we had his party at my niece Gina's boyfriend's restaurant, Pralina, in Featherbrooke Village. We partied until pumpkin hour when I rounded Connor and Mom up and headed home. An uneventful trip home ... with Connor chattering incessantly ~ this happens when he has something alcoholic to drink ~ I allowed him to have a beer and then him and Wesley shared 'somethin'. We got to bed at 01h01.
It was taking forever to load photos so I went and had a shower and am now going into my photo programme to see if I can make the photos smaller so that I can share them ... So please be patient ... Here they are ...
|Connor took this photo of the clouds for me on our way to the party while driving along Hendrik Potgieter ... absolutely beautiful!!!|

My plans for today ...
- take Indiana to the vet for his last injection,
- collect a parcel at the post office and post a letter to the pensions dept in the UK for my father-in-law;
- shop for "gift boxes" for our Christmas gifts;
- buy some munchies for the carols by candle light that we are going to attend, weather permitting;
- start making my Christmas tags;
- drop off photos for printing .... I think that's quite a list!!!! Good luck Lynn!!!
