Well the time has come for our long awaited holiday to South Africa!
Bags are being packed, camera and phone batteries and chargers and plugs are being sought, clothing is washed and ready to be ironed tomorrow morning (by the cleaner! Not me hehe), presents are wrapped and ready to be packed, fridge is being emptied of all that may go off whilst we are away, banks are being called to advise of us being away (having a card declined at the Empire State Building in new York a couple of years ago, due to the bank thinking our card was being used fraudulently there, was NOT fun!), dosing up on our vitamin c as usual, and most importantly, disprins... for the flight ahead (anti DVT).
Looking forward to being with family, the sunshine, friendly people, smiles, viewing game, South African food, laughing... :)
And most importantly... more than the fun in the sun, and the warmth of the hugs of dear ones... we look forward to celebrating the birth of Christ...and thanking Him for all He has done in our lives, the blessings He bestows on us who are so unworthy.
Celebrating His life and His goodness.
