Son in the sun..


Donni Rust thinking about his trip to SA.

This is a photo of my son taken in England last week. At this moment he is enjoying himself in sunny South Africa.

He arrived in Cape Town with nothing but an empty bag . Already he has bought, camping equipment, Texan steak the size of a breadboard and a tent having opted to camp and not stay in the pre-booked hotel.

His intention is to enjoy the HEAT, wear the least amount of clothes (no surprise there, he is The Naked Busker after all),  eat big steaks and visit friends.

I can’t wait to read these stories.






I have decided to make a concerted effort to try my hand at photography and will create a new blog to record my efforts.

Not in any big way but just so I can have a platform or a place to store my best photos.

I have always loved taking pictures but over the years I’ve had many different hobbies that my poor hubby simply smiles at my words ‘my next hobby’.

I will create a new blog and call it ‘Stop The Car!’ I know this title will get a smile from my hubby as I forever scream these words down his ear in the middle of heavy traffic or, one I do remember.  We were travelling on a particularly dangerous road. Diving up to the top of Sani pass in Lesotho. We were surrounded by sheer cliffs and the road was a single track. A hair raising experience. Oh but the scenery was awesome!  But we didn’t stop.

I don’t have a fancy camera, in fact I don’t have a camera. I have a mobile phone.

I hope I have a few passengers on this trip and I receive some criticism on the journey.

How sad.

I feel very sorry for my friends and family living in South Africa with all the electricity  outages. Or as my Facebook friends describe this,  previously lit.

I known that If I was still living in SA I would accept it and work round it, but I still feel sorry for them.

One never knows what the future holds. Maybe, England will see the same fate in years to come. Then we will learn from SA.

Oh boy another sales gimmick!

This one blew my mind.
Not only must you put washing powder and fabric softer in your mashing machine but also. . . Wait for it.
Anti bacteria rinse!

For pity sake, isn’t that being a bit too protective?

Don’t we need good bacteria to strengthen our immune system?

At this rate man will be too weak to fight a common Cold.
