- 30 September 2006
It was an early Saturday morning rise, at 5:15am (again), for my ad hoc Run & Walk For Life Saturday walking cession. We did an 8 km in 64 minutes in the Winston Park residential area. The weather was sunny and hot and the stickiness of humidity in the air. No time was wasted to put back all the calories with a 'French Toast' breakfast at Sprigs followed by a mid morning snooze.

Rayna invited all her scrapping friends and even her Teacha for a social afternoon's scrapping at their complex's club house in Botha's Hill. It was a most enjoyable and relaxing afternoon and a very welcome change to my normal Saturday scrapping teaching. I brainstormed a new layout (watch this space for evidence) accompanied with Sprigs chocolate brownies and Shelley's delicious home baked chocolate cake - chocolate overdose, what chocolate overdose?

Saturday evening was spent creating Stella's (Greek Connection) crystal watch order. Stella hope you like it.
Watch Sold: R235The rest of Saturday night was spent watching a 3 hour tear jerking Indian movie. I loved the happy and alive feeling Indian music and dance invoke. Thanks to the real TP for the loan of the CD. Even Conroy watched both 3-hour movies with me and that without reading a book or playing chess on his laptop, on the side. THORNTREE 15KM RACE (Pietermaritzburg) - Sunday, 1 October 2006
After going to bed at 11:30pm last night (Indian movies' fault) we very hesitantly rose at 4:30am for this race. It was a tough and hot 15km race with long gradual hills round every corner, but otherwise a most enjoyable race with a little bit of cross country here and there. Conroy took it easy and walked/jogged with me. We finished the race in 2h01min.- Resigning to a permanent horizontal position
