Weekly Winners : 6 – 12 Dec

Weekly Winners : 6 – 12 Dec

Yesterday, I joined Jeanette and friends at a Christmas Party at the Othandweni Children’s Home in Soweto ….

… there were jumping castles and yummy party food for the children …


A group of littlies sang like little angels …

One of the older girls wanted me to take her photograph but I see Jeanette has taken a far nicer one of her !!!!


.. and this young man INSISTED that I take his photo !!

Bradley and Connor came with us – something very good for them experience – that there are children and lots of them, who are far less fortunate than themselves ….


Bradley was pointing to the beautiful artwork on the walls surrounding the play area …


… and this young man got stuck into his plate of yummy goodies as well as storing a couple of sweets in his pocket for later …

I played soccer with Connor …

… before he got stuck into a cup cake after the other children had had their full …


… and then he wanted to go to the toilet. I was taken to the main building, by our pretty little photographed girl (4th photo) – a heart wrenching experience seeing all the cots lined up with babies sleeping .. some very small, then passing a neat dormatory with more beds than I was expecting to see, and then through the laundry area with washing machines tumbling and piles of clothes to be washed and sorted …

… shoes too get a good scrubbing …

Jeanette and friends .. you are doing a wonderful thing .. keep it up .. the world is a better place with caring people like you 🙂

Last Sunday, hubby and I went to Erin’s prizegiving at her little school ….
… love the tongue !! …


.. where Erin and her classmates sang Jingle Bells and a cute little song about a snowman being round and fat … she sang and did all the actions with gusto … a very enthusiastic little girl … and then received her certificate …. ‘Little Miss Independent .. oh yes .. teacher got that one right!!

After all the formalities … it was time to play .. and jump on her favourite trampoline … which she does on her tippy toes !!

… then off she ran to play with her best friend …

Well done Erin, Granny and Grampa are very very proud of you !!!

Had enough ? !!!

  1. If only more people did things like this initiative. But I think most of us are guilty of the "I don't have time" thing and don't make time for something like this.
