When life knocks you down, calmly get back up, smile, and say. "You hit like a bitch."


Family visit.

We had an absolute blast with Pete’s Sister and family. Most pics are on another pc, I will transfer some nice ones this weekend. I only have a few I can show, but nonetheless we had a great time. We are looking forward to seeing them again in 2 year’s time. The kids will be a bit bigger though. It’s staggering to see how fast children grow up. I just look at my 2 boys and my heart breaks just a little. Anyway, some photos of the Cheetah sanctuary and Byron the cutie pie. He reminded me so much of my Sister’s cat Rocky. The lady at the sanctuary liked the name Rocky so much she decided to name a baby Rocky. How cool is that? The baby must still come, but here’s hoping!

Byron, such a cutie pie!

Shaka, the naughty little little cheetah.

Shaka is desperately trying to get to Hannah’s little stuffed cheetah here. He was fine until he saw her holding this baby cheetah. Their hunting instints are so well developed that they recognise pray instantly. It was actually very cute.


Some meerkats at the sanctuary.

The brown heyenas. Eerie looking animals.

The wild dogs. They are endangered animals and really need protecting.

Me in in swim suit.

I never thought I would be able to wear a swimming costume or swim! Not only did I swim, but I also went down the water slide several times! The swimmimg pool I frequented was a lovely warm pool. We bopped around in the pool for hours! The water slide’s water was ice cold. But let me tell you, when you go down the slide, you don’t even feel the cold water! It’s an adrenaline rush of note! My Sister told me about this slide, her and her BIL lived on that slide when they went. I can now see why. It was such a blast!

The boys took their cousins to the water slide and we didn’t see them for hours! They did however come and dip in the warm pool every now and then to warm up!

The water slide!

I look very calm in this photo, but believe me, I did not go down the slide gracefully! The boys are still teasing me about my descent! What a blast that was!

The boys going down together.

These are just some of the photos, there are lots more, and more to come. But enough for now otherwise this post will turn into a novel.
