The downward slope towards the end of the year

October is already a third of the way through!! When did that happen??? It's all downhill to Christmas now I guess. At the beginning of the year I was so confident that I would be healthy enough to go away to Storms River for Christmas this year that I almost insisted we make a booking, as that place is so popular! Luckily we didn't...

We've had 2 fun evenings out at least. The first was to The Local Grill for Chris' birthday. We went with Chrislie and Pierre for some AMAZING steak. Afterwards we went to Paul's ice-cream in Hyde Park. On Chris' actual birthday we wanted to go to the movies, and we call ahead to ask if they have a plug/power point in the cinema where we could plug in my oxygen (where else do they plug in the vacuum cleaners???) but they insisted that they don't. Unfortunately the movie was only showing at Rosebank, otherwise we would have tried other places too. They said that they only have wheelchair access. They don't cater for people needing to charge. So in summary I'm too short of breath to watch a movie now. F@&king annoying...

The other fun night we had was at Andrew's house on Friday evening. He made some curry and we had an awesome evening!

Apart from that things have been quiet. Oh I've been featured on this website called "Power 2 Save" - an initiative developed by the American Society of Transplantation (AST)! They aim to increase public awareness around the importance of funding transplant research, donating organs and advocating for transplant health. So that's quite cool.

Adriaan also had his first school concert!!! It was freaking adorable. He was a sailor. He is in the Teddy Bear class and was the youngest baby there. He was super well behaved and totally chill in the limelight :-)
