The Hills Are Alive Day #6

Noid left to play golf kinda during breakfast. After the grand of Champagne Sports Resort I found Tower of Pizza’s breakfast lacking, although it was very well presented and tasty.

I did not want to spend another day on a golf cart and the side effects of medication I am taking makes life challenging at times…. so we arranged for a later check out.

I went back to bed, read, spent time on the PC and eventually I got kicked out the room and sat outside having a drink waiting for Noid to finish who arrived at 1pm. It was thankfully not cold, but windy.

We drove to our next destination, Drakensberg Mountain Retreat where we have become friends. Thankfully it was not a far drive as nausea and driving isn’t nice.

Noid was kind enough to bring all our baggage in. It hit me that I wish we could pack and throw away emotional baggage as we able to do with material things.

Noid flew his huge kite, I had tea and played around on a very slow internet connection. Noid fell asleep with Giraffie.

The afternoon turned cold and dark and I felt kinda lonely and down…. contemplating what all needs to be done for the move this weekend, work and the difficulties I face there, relationships with our kids, friends,…. my health. I felt a tad overwhelmed, yet thankful for the great amount of good in my life. I have many blessings. Thankfully the sad went.

Our room is one we have stayed in before with a double shower which is kinda sexy, a claw bath the is deep and luxurious, a fire place…. It is spacious and beautiful.

We had supper by candle light, a long chat with the lady who runs the establishment and lots of reading by the fireplace.

My favourite moment of the entire day was Noid holding my face in his hands and looking at me as if I was more precious than gold.

  1. Your day reminds me of our honeymoon. We went to the Valley Bakery in the Drakensberg and parked off there for the morning and part of the afternoon and read books, ate cake and lunch. It was fantastic!
