A good weekend
Cannot believe that another week has passed, don't seem to have achieved much. However, my little kitty seems to have recovered enough to climb up on the bed this afternoon and sit with her head on my knee, I am so honoured. Took pics of a bear for e-bay today and Leila was sitting watching me so I took her pic at the same time, 'tho not for e-bay.
Friday heard that the purchaser's bond had been approved subject to an inspection which also took place. Guy walked through the house measured the rooms and departed so now have to wait and see if the size of the house is correct or what!!!! Really strange, would have thought he would have checked out the condition of the roof or something........
Saturday had a great day with friends at the Cape Town Convention Centre at the Natural and Organic Exhibition. Certainly well attended as the crowds increased quite considerably by midday. Have to agree that alternative therapies are becoming a multi million dollar business. If we had to take all the supplements recommended each day it would be a lot of pills as well as a lot of money. However, we did have a great time with lots of interesting freebies. Nice to spend time with female friends, men would get dreadfully bored at something like that. All the free food was of the wholesome variety so nothing to tempt their palates either.
Today started the process of selling things off. Had advertised stuff on gumtree and was quite surprised at the response. Already sold some items and some of my pot plants today. Very sad to see my lovely pot full of pansies go, but I have so much to get rid of that I have to just keep working at it.
Received two prices for the animals to go to France, one with KLM and the other with Qatar Airlines, a little concerned about the second, 'tho much cheaper with the general reaction of that religion to dogs not sure if it is the best option.
A busy week ahead with two quotes to be obtained for furniture removers as well as a visit to the dentist again.... my front tooth seems to have a chip out of the edge, hope that doesn't mean a replacement as it will be another expensive exercise.
Another week begins............
Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you. - Nathaniel Hawthorne
