|The long road to the seaside|
I missed you guys and I missed my wee blog.
Yeeehaw! Five days at the Natal South Coast and what a great wee holiday it was.
We arrived at about lunch time on Monday after a 7 hour drive and checked into our large beach flat. We were right on the beach and could hear the waves crashing from our balcony.
We hardly unpacked and went around to see my mum and dad. My mum was so weak and frail she couldn't even get out of bed to greet us. She looked so pale and exhausted but I still managed to give her a long gentle cuddle, I just didn't squeeze too hard!

We spent most of the holiday either on the beach or at the pool or just hanging out with my folks, nattering and catching up at at their place. I always forget how loud our family is and how much we talk. We don't stop and my accent instantly becomes thicker without me even realising it. Hubby always points this out though.
Anyhoover, I had a good chat with both of my parents individually and let them know that they need only ask me for help with anything and I'll be there. They are not getting any younger and luckily they care for each other at at the moment, but there will come a time when one or both of them will not be able to do these things and then they will need myself and my sister to step in and help.
We are so far away from them and we'd love for them to move back to Johannesburg and be closer but they will NOT hear anything of it right now.
The time will come.
Nevertheless, it was a wicked wee break with loads of relaxing in the sun, playing in the surf and truck loads of special times.
Here are some of the daft pix
