Oh yeah!!!! it's here as they are saying it but I don't know if I'm excited about it. its just one of those things I'm a football fan but I think this world cup thing is not getting to me. the strikes going on in the name of the world cup, road construction, I just want things to go back to normal. On the other hand in our house the excitement is going over the roof, Wayne got his tickets and is now so excited to be a part of this world event. In protest I'm not going to watch any matches. When Wayne was buying tickets he called me to tell me about it and tell me he had applied for a ticket to one of the games with me and I kindly declined the offer. Luckily they only approved the games he was going with the boys . so that means I don't get to go. Well for those getting ready to come here . Hope you have a great time and be responsible, cautious and look after yourselves. Otherwise have a good time. there is a lot of football mania if I may call it. and the country is quite colorful except for the person near my work place that blows their vuvuzela at 6.30 am what a freak.

Last week on Friday I received a phone call off a strange number and at first I was hesitant to answer anyway I did and to my surprise my dear friend Bridget was on the other side. They were in town for only the weekend in transit to Uganda and we had to meet up. Wayne was studying for his exam on Monday so I went alone to meet them. We met at their hotel and went out to lunch with some friends of theirs. Jose and Sofia. It was great company with lots of laughter and good food. Shame little Don wasn't feeling well he slept through out lunch and woke up just before we left. After lunch we parted ways with Sofia and Jose and we went shopping more less shoe shopping and Don got a little bit worse and his mom suggested she decided to take him back to the hotel and I went with. We left Collin to continue shopping . When we got to the hotel room, Don got a little bit better and became so lively he was talking ,laughing and demonstrating his roar ... a cute lion. He is such an intelligent kid. Its amazing to see Bridget as a mother she is such a pro its like she was born a mother. They are such lovely parents to their little boy Don. It was fun seeing them and cant wait to see them again during the world cup.
