there goes my everything

On 28 January the journey started. I nearly died as that truck pulled into my driveway, but settled as I got myself an ice cream and sat under the only tree in my yard, watching the men pack.
 On Saturday it all turned pear-shaped. Things got left out. The container was too small. But lo-and-behold. Everything got in, and the seal was fixed.

When that truck-with-container drove down the road death settled in the soul again. I felt like "there goes my everything"... who remembers that ad? Only the "boere" from SA.

Hierdie is die begin van 'n wonderlike avontuur! Neem weer kiekies wanneer jou goedjies oor 3 maande in Oz aankom!
Ek weet presies waardeur julle gaan en bid vir krag vir die laaste 10 dae in SA! Dit gaan die moeilikste 10 dae van jou lewe wees. Dis nie maklik om te groet en nie te weet wanneer jy weer al die wonderlike vriende en familie gaan sien nie, maar dit maak jou sterk vir alles wat vir jou in die vreemde wag! Sterkte aan julle al 5!
