Meetups, farewells, holidays #8 – sentimental times and new bed #95!

Posted on February 28, 2020 by Sioux under Green Door

My next stop was to the home of my friend who had passed away a few months before, to spend some time with his wife. I hadn’t seen her since we parted in PE.   It was an emotional visit, and although we shed a lot of tears, we also did a lot of reminiscing […]

Posted on February 24, 2020 by Sioux under General

I spent 2 days with my sister and brother-in-law, also taking the opportunity of spending time walking around in Kirstenbosch Gardens, one of my most favourite places to visit in the Cape.   Both my parents loved visiting the gardens while they were alive. The peace and serenity of the place, coupled with the sheer […]

The last stop of my CT trip was to spend some time with my ex- parents in-law. They didn’t know I was coming, as I had arranged the visit with my ex sister-in-law, who was also visiting her folks at the time.   What a surprise!   Many tears, loads of hugs and laughter and […]

Meetups, farewells, holidays #4 – family time is fun time!

Posted on February 7, 2020 by Sioux under General

The 2 days with my daughter was pure chill time; the most we did was walk the dogs. An afternoon with my youngest sister and her family, eating, playing and generally having loads of fun, finished off the weekend perfectly! We met up with my almost-youngest sister for lunch, and I swopped accommodation, to spend […]

Meetups, farewells, holidays #4 – nearly at bed #100!

Posted on February 3, 2020 by Sioux under Green Door

I arrived in Cape Town in the early evening, and, as I would be staying with various family members during the week I was there, I didn’t hire a car.   My daughter fetched me and we set off for her home. She had moved closer to work and this would be my first visit […]
