Since I don’t do Christmas time very well, and don’t want to talk about it, let me regale you with the story of my kitchen drain.
I happen to like old houses.  The problem with old houses in South Africa though, is that a lot of them still have the old galvanised piping, as my house does. My kitchen drain is badly blocked.  They came out and shoved the springs up the drain to see if it can be unblocked.  Turns out the pipe is rotten, and my kitchen floor has to be chopped up, so that the pipe can be replaced.   I cannot have my kitchen floor chopped up right now, so this has to wait.  So now… 😦 I have a temporary pipe, sticking out from under the sink which empties into a bucket, that must not overflow.  Of course I am ecstatically enthralled and over joyed by this – NOT.  Lol 🙂
Sorry about the teeny little rant.  The situation is not really bad at all.  I must add that I am truly thankful and grateful for what I have.

But on the 26th they leave with their dad for Mexico. Syd will be very sad and I know I will fall hard. But now I write about the nutcracker and cook and enjoy my boys;) sorry about the pipe thing I do agree it will be a funny thought -someday. Till then, we love you here at WP and know how you feel. xx
