My coffee guy Menzi is really funny ... Sam and Eddie had been working in the restaurant for much of the day one day and when they ordered more coffee this is what his art said ...

Monday 20 July 2015: ... I started off the day by working at Ali's house until I took her to Linksfield Clinic for her post-op check up ~ We had a quick breakfast at the restaurant inside the hospital.  Then it was back to the office and after work my hunny met us at The Glen and we did a bit of shopping ... At PNA I bought some gorgeous paper (Cut&Paste) @ R5,59 a sheet which Ali had told me about and cannot wait to make up some layouts for my great nephews albums while we are away this coming weekend.  I never got anything else done tonight as I am feeling particularly exhausted.

Tuesday 21 July 2015: First day of our Branch Managers Conference at Olwazini ... I chose to sleep over as I LOVE Olwazini.  By the end of the day I was shattered so I went and booked into my room, sat and chilled with Sam for a bit and after dinner Mandy and I quietly disappeared back to our rooms where I read for a bit and the lights were out before 9:30.

Wednesday 22 JUly 2015: Second day of the BM Conference.  I slept until 6, got up and got ready and met Mandy for breakfast.  The second half of today was a team building exercise of Giant Foos Ball ... OMGoodness!!! There was so much competition between the different areas and thankfully not many injuries.  The Regional Team won at the end of the day.

Our Regional Manager, in the black outfit is VERY competitive and filled in when any of the teams needed an extra player.
