Where I stayed
Leaving for France tomorrow, camping with the boys, Dick and Ezra, this time, as Rose and Twan have taken over the cottage with their friends.
We'll find something near enough, and if it gets tough we'll come knocking on the door, begging for shelter.
Could get challenging, if I remember well the last time camping with the lads we had endless heated discussions, wearing me out, politics, religion, drugs, music, books, films and art - did I forget sex?
Dear me, how about some peace and quiet this time?
No, it'll be all right, I think we got past that stage, more worrying though, I think we've moved on to where they feel they should keep an eye on me now and I'll have to behave!
I'd love to say you will hear all about it but I have no idea if there will be internet possibilities, so we'll just have to wait and see.
When we return - not sure when, but there wont be much time left to get ready for the South Africa trip, leaving end of this month.
Very excited about it and things are taking shape, well in my mind, that is, nothing really sorted yet.
One of the things I haven't got round to yet is trying to raise funds for the project at Coffee Bay.
I'll be helping out there for a month, the foundation I will be working for is helping and supporting the local community to make a better life for themselves. They have several projects going: health, environment, employment, education etc.
Of course these initiatives need financial support too.
Anyone willing to make a donation, and thanks to those who already have, can send it to me, and I will see that it goes to the community.

That should work - but you never know, email me if there are problems. Not that I'm any good at this stuff.
Ok, I'm off. Loads to do. I will try and keep you posted.
Bye for now :)
