So South Africa has a LOT of public holidays but I’m really not complaining. My Mom and Craig were here from Joburg to celebrate Jake’s 4th birthday. Poor Craig shares his birthday with Jake’s – so he’s now ‘forgotten’ every year. Even though this year was his 50th! Poor guy. Anyway, we got to spend some quality time with them while they were here. The Devil Duck was a gift from my mother for Freya – typically my mother’s sense of humour (and mine). I love him. We took Freya for a walk along the beach front on our day off. She loves it. She’s so interested in everything. From mangey old pigeons to her own shadow – she chased and kicked at her own shadow for ages!
