Having a nice and quiet day today… my sister’s busy moving into my room, so I’m sorting out all my stuff. I’ve been in the same room for 21 years, so you can just imagine all the junk that comes out of there. I tend to be very sentimental about stuff! But I’m over a lot of that now, must be the new lungs-new life thing. So we took a huge bag of clothes to the Salvation Army and 4 bags of books and paper for recycling. And threw away boxes of old O2 tubing, old nebulisers that are broken, IV-stuff from as far back as 1995 and other rubbish. (I have a really big room!!!)
Saw one of my friends yesterday afternoon that I haven’t seen in about 2.5 years! Was awesome, he’s a great guy. He did missionary work on the Doulos Ship for 2 years. I can’t believe how time flies! Feels like just a few months ago that he left, although SO MUCH has happened in between… AND, my parents had some friends over for supper. Among them was my previous GP (not that I really have a GP now, just specialists!), who moved to Namibia (neighbouring country) about 10 years ago! Was so cool to see him again!
Going out for a cocktail/drink (I’ll probably be having hot chocolate though) with Daniel this evening, and having some BRAAIVLEIS (see ‘Jansenville’ post!) afterwards! Yummy!!! Speaking of which, I think I’m seriously starting to gain some weight now! When I was going through my wardrobe deciding what I want to keep, a lot of the pants and a skirt didn’t fit anymore!!! Yay!!! Love this gaining weight thing. Don’t know for how long though!!!
AND… going to STORMS RIVER with Daniel, Anto and Andrew tomorrow!!!!!! This is my favourite place in the WHOLE WORLD!!!!! And the MOST beautiful! A friend who works in George, Leandré, will be meeting us there. We’ll hike/walk, have lunch there, and enjoy the view and SUPER FRESH sea air. The last time I was there was in November 2006. Then I could barely climb one flight of stairs, nevermind walk on one of the trails or up the mountain. I couldn’t even do the 1km walk to the hanging bridge!!! I did take a photo with my phone though, and I often looked at the photo when I felt down and imagined going back there being able to breathe. At one time I actually told my sister that either a) the next time I’m there I’ll be able to breathe, or b) I’m never going to be there again. That was a weird way of thinking about it, but it was true. Although I must say it didn’t really freak me out. I knew that both options involved me being in a much better place! BUT I’M HAPPY WITH OPTION A!!! So needless to say I’m almost jumping out of my skin with excitement!!!! Hope I sleep tonight!!! Will take LOADS of pics…
O yes, and thanks to everyone who comments on my posts!! LOVE getting them!! Keep them coming ;-)
