I cannot believe that almost two years have passed without blogging, and how things have changed in the blogging world, and in my world. My computer genius was here tonight to upgrade everything as I could not get on to anyones blog including my own, it was by chance a few weeks ago I managed somehow to post a blog, and even left a message on my old friend "Yaya" from Whipering Pines and then .............. nothing again.
My world in 24 months has been swinging back and forth like a pendulum, but one thing remains constant......... my love for my Heavenly Father and my ability to laugh, especially at myself.
At the beginning of this year I was given a promotion, I am now National Credit Manager of a Billion Rand debtors book, 3500 customers and 17 credit controllers................. and I became a jet setter with banches all over the country I fly here there and every where........... now it is fun and I enjoy the people at the airports, it is amazing how people you have only sat next to for five minutes will give you there life story.
My first trip however was another story.
I flew from Johannesburg to Cape Town and met everyone, instead of staying over in Cape Town my boss had booked me on a flight to Durban arriving there at 8.30 in the evening, I then had to hire a car and find the hotel which I had never been to before in the dark. My daughter failed to tell me her Garmin had not been updated for 6 years.......... well I end up at the Durban main beach not a place to be after dark............ after getting instructions from the hotel i head back to my destination, it was pouring with rain........ and I just kept ending up at the wrong place........ all the road had changed names, the new South Africa..... at 10 o'clock it was now pouring with rain i ended up at a garage..... scared, tired, hungry, in my short skirt and high heel shoes, crying my eyes out, and I asked two guys to please help me............. I would love to know how they tell this story, because with one guy in a car behind and one guy in the car in front they escourted me to my hotel........ all of 6 minute down the road.....
The hotel restaurants were now closed, I had been booked into a self catering room, so had no tea or coffee, so just went to bed.......... the sea view the next morning was worth every tear.............. stunning
I always wondered what would happen if a "weight challenged" person was sitting next to me on the airoplane well it happened, and now I know, the gentleman was oozing over onto my seat, his folded arms came half way across my chest........... he had never flown before and was in the middle seat so kept standing up to look out of the window, and all I will say on this subject that it was not cute like this.................. ughhhhh

And the There Were Two
At last I found the problem with my blog and i am able to blog again,
How I have missed putting my stories down on paper, and how sad that the last two years have flown by as fast as a heartbeat and without any lasting memories, or communication from those of you who were there and supported me through one of the most difficult times of my life.
My family pod and friends who are still as fun loving and crazy as ever we had a Mexican night, the other night, with all the trimmings, learnt a very valuable lesson, Margarita's might sound exotic but taste absolutely awful, still wondering what to do with the rest of the ingredients, although I must admit make a very, very nice fridge tart....lol
My family has grown again my first Grandson Hayden is now two and as bright as a button, and like his Granny will try anything, took me one hour an 8 pony rides to convince him that it really was time to go home
My second Grandson Noah Allen Whittal was welcomed into the world on the 25 August
Its time now, to get back into the things I love, of which blogging, is the one I missed the most, and look forward to doing again.
