As I said in my last post, Colin and I flew up to Pretoria on 7 July to attend a cocktail party where Colin received his award. Pretty good I think!! He had a much larger audience than expected on the Wednesday when he presented his paper.
Another important thing that also happened on 7 July was that Richard (my cute 18 year old) got his drivers lisence. Well done Richard! He is now driving us crazy with wanting to go out with his friends. Fortunately he puts his own petrol in, I think the attendants at the garage knows him already as he puts such small amounts in at a time! Him having a lisence is actually very cool as he also goes shopping for me and fetches his sister after hockey - less driving for me!
And believe it or not, that is about all that has happened this past 2 weeks! I am very pleased that the kids are back at school as I have peace in the mornings now, but besides that it is pretty much life as usual.
