It was Bruce's second
visit to South Africa this year. Lots had changed since
his last visit, only eight months before. Mom had sold her
home and moved in with Jackie. Building work (undertaken
and managed by Des) was already far advanced in order to
make Mom comfortable in her side of the house. Soon after
Mom moved in, Jackie met Billy and, during my visit, they
announced their engagement!
If the weather looks
hot, it was.... very hot!

had come to an end. It was lovely to see everyone, but I also needed
to go home for a rest!
