About eight years ago MGW

came home from work one day…

…and asked would I like to go on an African Safari.

The question was spontaneous to me,

however she had been talking to

a work colleague who had decided to go.


So began planning for our 2013 African Safari.

As we were boarding our plane to return to Australia

we received a 25% discount voucher

for our next flight with South African Airways.

Without giving it much thought my comment was

‘…we should make use of this and return….’

So began planning our second African Safari.

A wonderful Safari through Botswana.

Now we are finalising plans for our third

and probably final African Safari next year.

When planning our time in Paris…

…it was highly unlikely that I

would not visit the Eiffel Tower…

…or visit the Moulin Rouge which was

a wonderful dinner and show.

In June 2018 No 1 Son sent us a Facebook message,

while we were  in Canada, telling us he

was quitting his job the bank and setting up his

own Financial Planning business.

Recently he submitted relevant documentation

and was shortlisted for the the

Financial Planners

2019 Rising Star Award.

At an award night in Adelaide, late last week,

he was Awarded the Winner’s trophy.

I think there were 5 or 6 Rising Star candidates

in attendance from the original 40

which were at the first interview.
