Good morning to all of you. I am happy to report that I survived the school year and have three more admin days before I am officially on holiday. I survived the Christmas market and made quite a bit of money too (thanks for bullying me into it Audrey)
This is what my dining room looked like the morning of the market, with everything packed and ready to go. How I fitted all of that in the car remains a mystery The flowers on the table was a gift from DH for our 34th wedding anniversary. Aren't they just wonderful?
On a more personal front, I am happy to report that little Tiani has made it to Bloomington safely and recieved her first treatments yesterday. Now we hope and pray that the treatment works and she comes back to South Africa in 2 months time cancer free!
I am still struggling to get my head around our friend's suicide, somehow it is haunting me terribly. I read a page from Jonathan Jansen's book, 'Letters to my children' where he said: 'Never judge somebody who commits suicide, for they might just be the most honest of us all' . If you can get hold of that book, do - it is a collection of 365 tweets that he addressed to his children after reading Maya Angelo's book. He is one of my personal South African heroes, a man with vision and not afraid to speak his mind.
Happy WOYWW, have a great day everybody! I am taking the leaders of the school to a local amusement park for the day, but hope to visit way more of you when I get back.
