Day 29 – Blood ties are the strongest

Day 29- In this past month, what have you learned

The value of family, and having good relationships.
It’s been so good having my parents stay with me. The fact that they are so far away and that I only get to see them once a year really makes me appreciate them a lot more than the average person, or even when I was younger and may have taken them for granted.

I’ve also learnt a lot more about gardening and types of plants, soils, flowers etc.
I swear it sounds like I’m becoming an old nana.

I’m still in my twenties! Promise!

Day 21- A picture of something that makes you happy

I love how my brother has found his soul mate and is marrying her next year. These photos all make me extremely happy.

It Finally Ends…

I will miss that bright red caterpillar..

You can still sponsor him(my bro) here

So all i needed was some bribes?

You may have known or not that my parents have arrived for their annual family holiday with the kids..
the kids being my brother and myself, and annual.. well.. every Christmas we make an effort to come together, mostly either in Australia or in Qatar, although sometimes we venture to other continents.

They arrived on the 15th of November and leave on the 30th December.
Now I though that they wouldn’t be coming this time because my brother gets married in April and they are coming over for that.
HOWEVER my parents are relishing in the idea of TWO trips to Australia.

Lots of family time.

Now since we have just emerged out of winter, the garden had a much larger proportion of weeds than it normally does, and well to put it nicely, dad is a garden fanatic.

I spent the last three weekends prior to them arriving doing gardening.
I even held a GARDENING PARTY with some friends. We all had a good laugh at Fez who misread the invite and thought he was coming to a GARDEN Party, and came with his girlfriend in their Saturday best.

Here is something that sums up a little about growing up in Africa and my weed problems..

When together is all that counts
