Happy New Year from Camps Bay

Paul my grandson was the last of our party to arrive on 30th December. The weather is beautiful and we sat outside while we waited for Paul having a long chat with my son and son in law about our outlook on later life! It was good to see Paul – he is copying his Dad (Brian) and does not believe in using razor blades! We took the new year in at ‘The Pepper Club’ restaurant in Camps Bay where we had a great night. Marina says we danced every dance and it was my fault. It was good to take in the New Year all together.  Had a long lie on New Year’s day and up at 10.30am. Sat outside in the sun but could only manage about 45 minutes – very hot so had a swim in the pool.

Here is a picture of us all on the seafront at Camps Bay and one of Marina and I dancing the night away. Tomorrow we are off to Cape Point.

    My husband and I had similar trip last year
    and had a splendid time however, sadly my husband has become much worse with losing the ability to remember to eat or drink is constantly incontinent and cannot recognize his children or grandchildren so enjoy the brief time you ‘may have’ with the people who mean the most god be with you.

    We fully agree Celia as the one thing in life you don’t get back is time, so many take for granted until something as awful as this comes along, Alz is a debilitating condition and can transpire at urgent speed my uncle developed this and just 2 yrs later became very violent, my aunt could no longer cope he sadly passed away in nursing home this year,he had not seen his daughter for 13 years of which he deeply regretted, my aunt met the grandchildren he never got to see, this disease came swift and destroyed any quality of life for him, this is not the case for everybody and we wish the best for all of you bloggers…

      I couldn’t agree more Celia and Harry. It’s so important to make the most of your loved ones while you can and take every opportunity.
