Some more updates ....

Ok, so I have now finally caught up with my blogging - please read the few posts below this as well!

Last week, Tuesday, Shelley, Rayna, Liane (Rayna's daughter) and I went to the ICC areana to see Smokie (to the youngsters out there, they are a band who made the song "Alice" - living next door to Alice as you might know it, famous. They were brilliant and had us all bopping and jiving in our seats and then eventually standing up. That was certainly food for the soul and it is a long time since I have been out dancing.

Then on Thursday, Dereck's friend Mali who plays at the Heritage Theatre arranged free tickets for us to see The King and Queen - a tribute to Elvis and Freddie Mercury, so Rayna and Shelley joined us and we saw that show. If you haven't gone to see it, you better get booking - brilliant music and a good laugh! They also have the Gee Jays with Bad Moon Rising coming up soon and that should also be really good - we have already booked for this.

Friday evening I spent sorting out the gifts for bosses day. I have taken pictures but you will have to wait until after Thursday 16 October 2008 to see what Paula and I did.

On Saturday it was Rayna's birthday and Shelley, Kathy, Rayna, Nikki and I went to the Heritage Retreat for some pampering. I had a full body massage and my pedicure and the others also had massages, pedicures and hot stone massages. When we were finished we sat on the deck and had wonderful fresh muffins and orange juice while we decided where to go for lunch. We decided on Star Anise where we helped ourselves from the buffet menu and you then weigh your plate for the price. A most enjoyable meal. But most of all, a most enjoyable pampering session with great friends. Something we have all decided that we need to do again. If any of you want to go to the Heritage Retreat, I recommend the therapist by the name of Bronwyn - she is brilliant!

Today was a lovely day - really hot and a taste of what summer is going to be all about. Dereck and I went for breakfast at the Mugg and Bean in Pinetown, then went to visit my brother Malcolm and Carol (it was their 17 anniversary on 5 October 2008) and thereafter joined our friends Darryl and Bev for a braai at their place in Glenashley. We got home at about 5pm. I have been updating comments on the various blogs I visit and of course updating my own blog. So now that I am completely up to date and it is now almost 10pm, I think that it is time for me to go to bed.

Up to date signing off ....
