It's my birthday ...

It is 04h35 here in my neck of the woods and I have been up since 2am.  I made Richard and Connor tea, got young Master Gladwin out of bed and saw them off ~ I said "Leave a bit early so you don't have to rush".  And now I feel so guilty for doing that ... Richard called me about 45 minutes ago to say that they had gone through the De Hoek Toll Plaza and a deer had walked out into the road and he was not able to swerve out of the way and hit it ... There is damage to the car and he thinks the buck died.  Darn!!!!  I just called him again to check that they are OK and now I am fretting about what his boss is going to say as the meeting details had changed and Richard was supposed to fly to Durban but I said let's keep our plans and go down anyways.  OMGoodness!!!!  What a way to start my birthday!!!


  1. Oh, my. I hope everything works out alright. Happy Birthday!

  2. Thanks Ally. My hubby and son are fine ~ Connor is just very traumatised and says that he can't get the vision out of his mind. I have had a very nice birthday.
