The hills are alive !

We have had a great past few days here in the Midlands - the weather has been very mixed! you can definitely have 4 seasons in one day, and thats why we had to pack so many different items of clothing especially for the boys ! Deqlan continues to be in his element here, with lots and lots of space to explore and lots of new things to discover.

On Tuesday we went to Swiss land cheese, abotu 2kms up a mountain. At the top, you can select cheese and a bottle of wine and have a picnic while watching the goats around you - was really beautiful! Deqlam tried to make friends with a cat - he had a huge smile on his face when he discovered the cat, but the cat was not to happy when Deqlan tried to pull its tail, and needless to say disapeared vry quickly!

Poor Grandpa hasnt been feeling to great so has been a bit quiter then normal and we are all trying to get more rest and just chill and read the books he loves so much.

Meggie hs also been extremely uncomfortable with a very sore and tender mouth ulcer and to top it all off toothache!

Keaton also had terrible colic a few nights back, but it seems to have eased off a bit! He had a blocked nose and little cough yesterday, but luckily seems to have gotten much better.

Nanna has had a migraine or two and sore muscles and shoudlers!

Mark has been sneezing constantly - must be the fresh air or an allergy to something in the air!

Conrad has hayfever!!

Please pray for our 'troops' to feel better and so we can enjoy Durban to the max!

Our Soldier, luckily got over his tummy bug and is right as rain again!

Yesterday we ventured out to have lunch at the Bierfassl an authentic German/austrian restaurant and Grandpa especially enjoyed his rosti that he loves so much -Dada and Conrad enjoyed the beer of course! Deqlan had more space to run around in and a play area all to himself - but he was more interested in going to the areas wher he was not allowed to go to! Nanna also stopped us crossing a bridge as a lovely bright green snake slivered in front of her!!!!!!!!! aaahhhhh! i am so glad i did not see it, as you all know i dont do snakes! After , we did a bit of shopping at the junction and found some lovely clothes and books and toys for the boys! I was most excited at my discovery of Balamory books for Deqlan - he was very pleased with them to!

Today we are going to my favorite place in the Midlands, an italian restuarannt called la lampara - its beautiful, and so authentic, and warm - hope to post lots of photos and stories fron our travels today!

We are off to durban tommorow- and to say i cant wait is an understatement! I am so excited for Deqlan to see the sea again and walk on the sand - bu most of all to meet the dolphins, i absolutely adore and love! Cant wait!

Must run, let us know how you all are! God Bless and lots and lots of love
Mark, Samm, Deqlan, Nanna, Grandpa, Meggie, Conrad and Keaton
