Dr Marc to the rescue

My dentist died on the morning of my appointment, but paramedic and guest Marc came to the rescue with a temporary filling. Working on a ship as the doctor on board in the Gulf of Mexico, Marc is used to stop-gap measures to tend to the sailors far from shore.

Durban's first Pink Parade

We took part in Durban's first Pink Parade down Florida Road on Saturday. Nothing spectacular but a bit of fun and the beer at BeanBag at the end of the parade was good. Next year I want to organise our own Guesthouse float and have a floatbuilding party the night before. Who is in?

OIffice Christmas party


Lisa, Val, Tracey, Sharon and Mom - staff at the do

Kate-Lynn's 22nd birthday doubled as my Office Christmas party so it was a good reason to celebrate. Brad sang some tunes, Ian, Mark and Dain also helped out. 

Kate-Lynn turns 22

Wow, my big girl is 22 and even the pooch thinks it's present time. Kate's 21st birthday year was a spin and it's already over. The next big event is the 3-month student exchange to Norway she is going on in January!

Steve and Andy pose after the announcement

The engagement ring

Steve was on his cellphone broadcasting the news

It is great to see the guesthouse being used for special occassions and Kate-Lynn's friends Steve and Andy became engaged here last night. A nervous Steve brought Andy to the guesthouse on some pretext and then on the rooftop popped the question and handed over first a fake ring as a joke and then the beautiful ring pictured above. The happy couple then joined friends who were waiting for them for dinner and festivities.
