Today we celebrate Workers’ Day with a public holiday. We thought this would mean less traffic on the roads but that was wishful thinking.
We got up early and then went to have breakfast at the restaurant. While we were waiting for them to open we watched the crested guineafowl pecking about the gardens for food. There were also baboons about and we could hear an angry one barking. I had the camera to my eye when Earl spotted him walk right past me. I wasn’t aware of him at all and fortunately he didn’t try to hurt me
On the way home through the Durban traffic we stopped off for lunch and to shop for the ingredients I needed for Andrew’s birthday celebration tomorrow. We arrived back at Lauren’s at about 3:30.
I made my dips for the party – tsatsiki and humus but my guacamole did not work out well – it was very bitter. Earl said he would buy more avos tomorrow and I could start again. I don’t think it will be necessary as we really have enough dips for my crudités
Lauren took the kids to the Circus. I was not able to eat supper after eating a breakfast of eggs, bacon and tomato and a chicken salad for lunch. This is Banting! You just don’t get hungry!
