I completed reading "I am Pilgrim" last night - boy, it's good! Expect a review soon. And now I have a book hangover - I can not get into any other book. Another 800 pages of Pilgrim would have been perfect.
It's the first Friday since the gala season started that A is not swimming. They are a lot in her age group so the do get weeks that they do not swim. It's great to have an afternoon to breathe and get some work done. She also loved not having to be at school at 6am for swimming relay practice.
I very seldom watch Tv but am really enjoying Lorraine Pascale's cooking program. And now I need apple pie. The home made variety.

The kids had the school's internal rugby and netball day yesterday. The classes play each other and the grade 7 kids act as coaches. The boys' classes both won their matches and A's class won the overall grade 5 prize - for matches and having the best spirit and cheer to start off. 3 very happy kids.
We had a huge thunderstorm and much needed rain last night. Our poor Ocean girl was so scared that she ended up between me and Hunter on the bed. Sweet little puppy - still not used to Gauteng thunder storms. And will we ever think of rain the same way after this huge drought? I don't think I will ever.
