My family arrived home from South Africa last week. I was very pleased to see them, perhaps selfishly but it is good knowing that they are around again. Usually when they are away I ask a friend of mine to text me each morning to see if I’m up and around!
The gifts they brought back for me are charming. I love the journal – I kept a journal for many years but I have lapsed. It’s very cathartic, you can vent your feelings. The bracelet seems to embody what South Africa means to me – beautiful colours.
The safari was a hit, but I think some aspects of the holiday were disturbing. The weather was cold at times and they even had to buy hats and gloves, but it was spring. Funny but I expected South Africa to be hot!
