The kids

The year has started off with a bit of a bump, in that two of the kids are leaving! Two daddy's have been headhunted (one in Johannesburg and the other in Singapore), and they are both going!

Blessed that I am, I have already filled those vacancies... but I'll miss those two very much. Their giggling, belly laughs and funny sayings... the hardest part of this job is saying goodbye to the lil ones.

Christmas 2009

This Christmas was amazing - we had my mum from Johannesburg, South Africa with us for a month... as well as my brother Shaun, his preggie wife Becks, and their two lil ones for nigh on a month too!

What a blessing to have one's family with one at Christmas ... this rarely happens with my immediate family living on 3 different continents.

It was snowing for much of the time... which lent a magical air... it was just splendid.

A great shame my brother Les and his wife and kids couldn't be with us too... there is always someone missing.
