    Good Morning

    It was SO cold when I hot up today! My knees really protested! Had some lekker rooibos tea with rusks, now making the day's sarmies - two peanut butter rolls and a ham sarmie. Also boiling the breakfast sausages.

    Still surprised I forgot to blog about Father's Day. A belated blog-Happy Father's Day Dad!!! I love you, I'm proud of you and I thank the Lord for you often. Thanks Dad. Love you.
