Meeting the Stellies mates

Getting back to Stellenbosch Mark invited his mates around for a braai at his new digs last night. Today Mark and I fly out of Cape Town to Dubai and the next day on to Athens and Bulgaria for snowboarding.

Round Trip to Cape Town in the planning

Flying has had to take a back seat this month as we plunge headlong through a busy period... first off the office recovery after the few days Christmas break, then the office New Year Party which kicks off on Friday night and with our PRO Bobby off sick, we have had to put it together ourselves. Then my son Mark's car got stolen and with Lynn's car in for repairs we were down to sharing 2 cars between 4. This Saturday I am off with Mark to get his car back to Cape Town for the new Varsity term, and Wednesday Mark and I fly off to Bulgaria to snowboard for a few days. Emirates cancelled one of their flights so we also get stuck in Dubai for 1 day arriving at 2am!

So our poor Sling Airplane "Red Rocket" is waiting for it's pilot. In the meantime though we are planning a trip to Cape Town, up the west coast and to Sutherland for the stars in April. Here's what our EasyPlan route is looking like. And our friend Marc in his yellow submarine will be joining. Wow. Going to be exciting.

New Year a family affair

New Year started off with a braai at the guesthouse on New Year's Eve, followed  by a full roast dinner on New Year's day with my mom and the kids and the afternoon with the Galway cousins at their Westbrooke Beach holiday home. The next day we flew off to Margate and San Lameer where Llewellyn's sister picked us up for morning breakfast on the beach and a lazy morning in the sea and around the pool. Awesome re-charge of batteries before I head off to work today.
