The wind has been howling, but that is summer in Cape Town for you!!! We spent some time watching the waves crash over the harbor wall.

After last weeks outings and shopping and feasting this week we spent in doing crafts and preparing gifts and what not… our house looks like a bomb totally hit it!!!

But everyone is happy not to mention we have one flimsy week of school to go. Everyone is thrilled least of all me – I am so desperate to clear little projects off shelves and repack school books where they belong and go to the library and read mountains of books and… just one more week (and it is a very flimsy week – but nobody knows that they have actually finished their maths and grammar and it is teeny tiny bits and pieces that need to be finished!!!

And baking cookies for our cookie swap… and just in case you think we are totally together we completely forgot to buy a Christmas tree!!! Our friends that always help us decorate it the Saturday before Christmas are away and well we never gave it a thought!!! Can you believe there is NO tree. Needless to say we will have to address this small problem!!!

Meanwhile since the father person is on leave we have been braaing and making roosterkoek… and all I have to do is make a salad for supper!!! And I just love how layers of salad become a mixed salad with one scoop of the spoons!!!
