I seem to always be doing "catch-up" posts...and I seem to always be behind on my blog reading. My wish is for some time to just get my life back to normal.
I want to show you a few of my favourite recent photographs...and not all because they were well composed...more likely because they make me smile and give me pleasant memories.
The first one is of our little grandson, Lukas...reading on our bed. Yes...he has Oupa's reading glasses on;-)
...and he pushes them to the top of his head...just like Ouma does hers;-)
This photo of my DH, our two sons and our one grandson was taken after my dad's memorial service.
This one of me and my daughter and two daughters-in-law was also taken at the church.
The two beautiful girls that will be giving me the gift of grandsons soon.
Our children walking on the beach at Kidds Beach.
DH and Lukas walking on the wall of the tidal pool.

My very special sister and I.
Lache's finds on the beach.

A quick cuddle with Leane.

...and not wanting to go in the same direction.
I started working again last Monday and found myself emotional and suddenly unable to cope with even the little things. During the time of my father's death, I was the strong one. The one who took charge, the one who in between tears had to phone all my siblings and family to let them know that it was over. There was no time to cry...so I zipped up all the seams and stayed strong. On my way to work a vehicle that was parked on the curb without it's handbrake pulled up....rolled back into the road and bashed into the front of my car. The owner walked out from the bank, arrogantly told me that I can't prove anything, got into his car and drove away. My anger just dissolved into tears and for the next two hours when anybody spoke to me, all I could do was cry. I felt to stupid at the time but realize now that it was just the incident that was needed to break down the walls that I have put up.
I have at last caught up with my admin, paid the accounts, did the VAT returns and suddenly I have time to breathe again. It feels SO good. Tomorrow Bianca has an appointment for a 4D scan and DH and I will be going to have a good look at our soon-to-be grandson. I am excited.
