Day two and keeping the theme personal. One of the many advantages of being a member of large family is celebrating frequent birthdays throughout the year. Just yesterday we were part of the fun of GSK’s birthday disco. Yes, eight-year-old’s are having discos to celebrate their day. (The photo below is from another day…)
But… here’s a big but… tomorrow is my good lady’s day! As is the tradition in our household, we’ll be having a birthday braai. OK, I know… many of you will wonder. A braai is the South African word for doing meat over the coals. No, it’s not really a BBQ… there’s a mental shift that separates the two activities. I’m often heard to be explaining… one does burger patties, wieners or porkies on the BBQ and real meat, like steak or chicken or lamb cutlets or chops… or crayfish and prawns… oh, I’m getting ahead of myself, again!
So… as it’s my good lady’s day it’s also her choice of meat. Chicken and beef sosaties… skewers, for those of you wondering. So… to the good lady… may you have a day never to forget! Thank you for making all our lives so special!
