We’ve had the kind of week you have when you live somewhere and know people. It’s an odd feeling, in a way. We’ve been to the same place twice this week (the play place) and I spent a bit of time visiting a friend in hospital. We were carless as the car had to go in to have the gearbox fixed.Â (How rare is it to have x in the same sentence twice?) So, yes, all in all, pretty domestic.
Day 305 – Visiting Oupa
My dad, or Oupa, the Afrikaans word for grandfather and Ameli. We dropped by his office for a visit, and I think he enjoyed that.
Day 306 – Indoor Play
It’s so scorchingly hot most days that we tend to go to the indoor play parks. It’s also a fair bit safer than an open park, so I can relax while Ameli and my mom play.Â If I compare this picture of her wading through the ball pit with this one in January, I cannot believe how she’s grown!
Day 307 – Nana Love
My mother has been spending a lot of time with Ameli recently, which I think has been great for both of them! I love this picture. So much love between them.
Day 308 – Lory Park
Spent the day with a great friend, Tristan, his fiance, and her niece and nephew. I love how many animal ‘parks’ etc there are in South Africa. For about Â£4.50 you can spend the day in an animal reserve, park, or whatever. We saw white lions, pumas, cheetas, leopards and a bunch of other wild cats I can’t even remember now.Â Here they were looking at Bengal tigers. Just beautiful! I love that I’m able to expose Ameli to this, whether she’ll remember it or not
Day 309 – Birthday Dinner
My niece-in-law turned 17 so we had a lovely dinner out with her. Although she should feature here, it’s so rare that I have a good picture of myself AND Martin, like, in the SAME photo that I couldn’t give this up!
Day 310 – Back in the Indoor Play
A good mid-point between my mother’s place and ours, so why not!
Day 311 – In the Swing of Things
Propelling herself on the swing and loving it, my beautiful princess.
