Easter Saturday Travels

This morning we went up to the Midlands Meander - about 100kms from where we stay......It was a good break - went to the Groundcover Leather Company to collect a pair of shoes that were resoled and I bought a medium leather body bag. Have finally decided I am old enough to have a handbag :LOL

The scenery is absolutely stunning as you meander through the area - mostly sand roads so one you can't drive fast anyway. I saw the most stunning small waterfall underneath a low bridge.....South Africa has the most wonderful scenery.

After all the shopping and driving..... we stopped off for lunch at the Piggly Wiggly Farm Stall. They make the best Cappuchino in the whole of South Africa if not the whole world. It has real chocolate mousse on top. No wonder they won the best Cappuchino in South Africa award a couple of years ago. Scrumptous....

New Beginnings - New Opportunities

My contract with a corporate company came to an end at the end of March and due to personal circumstances, I decided not to renew the contract. The last couple of days were very stressful but today...... I am feeling as free as a bird, ready for new challenges and new opportunities....time to quilt... Watch this space - I have been saying that for a long time. While change is often very difficult and painful, it is sometimes necessary to move on with one's life....
