* broeks is Afrikaans slang for panties
Wow, I go away for two days and all hell breaks loose! I haven't had time to read your recent comments properly, but a quick glance at my BlackBerry tells me that things have got a little heated around here.
I've been away for two days, did you miss me? Or did you not even notice I was gone, you fair-weather fickle friends of mine!
I had a little trip planned for Monday and Tuesday, but due to Rose's early leave, I had to do some fancy footwork to arrange care of the offspring while I was away. Marko is at work during the day, schools are closed, Rose is away so I was pretty stuck. Luckily my lovely mother helped out with the twins, but I had no one to look after old Maxie boy so I took him with me! He was SUCH a superstar on the trip. Very good on the flight up to Joburg and mostly quite good on the flight back (he was quite tired so cried a little, but was mostly really good). I met Rose in Joburg at the airport (she was delighted to see her charge) and then we all went back to the hotel. Rose and Max went off to do their thing and I had a few appointments. I booked a hotel room for Rose and Max, and another one for myself. The prospect of a full night's sleep was VERY alluring. Unfortunately I worked until 11 and then was WIDE AWAKE at 5am. But it's the thought that counts, so they say.
It seems strange to take Max aalllll the way to Joburg with me but it worked out really well. It was so fun to see Rose, Max had a great time and I felt much better knowing that he was close by and well looked after.
I must say, I felt quite proud of me. I am normally SUPER anal about routine and about staying home etc, but there I was, baby and all, winging my way across the country! Go me! Getting quite adventurous in my old age. Next stop - BINGO!
PS Max really is THE most friendly, sweet, easy baby in the world. I am so damn lucky!
I am very fond of that chap.
