I need a weekend to recover from this weekend !
I really do. I’m broken. I’ve hardly had enough sleep, and driving from Gauteng to Natal and back in two days with a party in between is not recommended. I hurt all over.
And so it was that the family gathered to celebrate my aunt’s 70th birthday. The party was arranged for the Saturday afternoon from about noon, but we would be slightly late. I still had to work Saturday morning. Bron and I left Johannesburg, at 10:30am with a 4 hour drive ahead of us.
We arrived a little late, but the trip was well worth the travel. My aunt was so happy to see us and I finally got to introduce my wife to my uncle, whom I’ve not seen in over 5 years.
It was a fantastic weekend which I would not have missed for anything. The late start was a bit sad as I would have loved to spend more time with everybody, but such is life.
Happy birthday “Ouma Ena”
