Well we survived (it was close at times!). We spent a very cold but beautiful night at Black Eagle retreat in Waterval Boven. Our wooden cottage overlooked a trout lake. We bundu bashed through wild forest and got covered in black jacks! Next day we stopped at Sudwala caves, which was awe inspiring. Then onto Hazyview where we went for a day trip into Kruger National park and Pilgrims rest.
It was good to get away with the kids and reconnect as a family. At times when i can solely focus on my children i realise just how exhasuting it is to be a working mother. I am stressed so much of the time that i cant always mother the way i want to. On the other hand, i am a better mother because i work. Catch 22.
I did some shopping as well. Bought beautiful african fabric and some wooden carvings, which are already up.
Now we are home, the kids are fed and bathed, the bags are unpacked, the suitcases have been packed away, the mother is tired!
But i have over 400 photos on the camera just calling to be posted and to be scrapbooked. Will print tomorrow and get started!
And yes, it is good to be home again!
