My son, jan-Hendrik(13) and daughter, Rozanne(21)
I am taking a break from blogging as we are moving house in 2 weeks. So I will have to leave the lappies and quilting and klosjes and hexies, and do a lot of packing.  But i will always read all your blogs and will be back soon.

On Monday I took my mom to see her financial adviser. It was a challenge to me, driving so far and out of my normal way. But we had a great day. We also visited the most beautiful store "Block and chisel" It had the most beautiful furniture. We had a great lunch and then I took her home.

 While I sat at the gym watching my son practising swimming, I got a sms from my daughter saying she is watering our garden and spraying our roof as there is a fire about 100meters from our house. I nearly died. When i got home, there were firefighters and helicopters spraying water in the nearby( very nearby) nature reserve. It went on till the following day. We have a thatched roof on our house and hubby was away on business. I had the worst night!!!! Didn't sleep a wink. I was thinking what I was goiing to grab if our roof got on fire. To make things worse, the wind started blowing.

The next morning the poor hard working fire fighters were still here. And I was relieved to see the sun.

So last night i went to bed at 19h20!!!!!!! and slept peacefully till 7h00!!!!!!

Now I am goiing to make myself a pot of tea and take out my quilting.

Happy days.

Hello to all my blogger friends. I am so glad to be back! I have not been anywhere but at home , but WITHOUT a COMPUTER! And it was not not nice. I missed visiting you all. Now I will have to catch up.

Hope your Valentine will spoil you with lots of love. Mine is hoping for a big surprize,but shame.... I am only taking him on a picnic to the beach this evening. Hope the weather keeps.

I will post my finished hexies on Wednesday and show you pics of what I have been up to.

As you all know, I am a avid follower of Supergoof. Please take a minute and go to her blog and read what she wrote. I couldn't agree more!!!! You go Ingrid!!!!

Lots of love

We are experiencing a heatwave here in Cape Town. I picked my son up at school, and it was 41 degrees C in my car. We are all sweating!!!
