On Friday afternoon we went to a Cirque du Soleil show and the result was that Daniel’s hoola-hoop came out of hiding for numerous performances for the rest of the weekend. On Saturday we tried to go to the Irene market in Pretoria, but it seems everyone in Pretoria had the same idea and after hours in the traffic we gave up. We ended up taking Daniel and his little friend to play ten-pin bowling since we promised them an outing. The ball was bigger than their heads, but they loved it! The boys went riding on their bikes in the Botanical Gardens and had a picnic in the park. We went out for lunch, out for a supper at a Chinese restaurant and had take-away at home. We made croque-monsieurs one day, French toast another and had hot-cross buns on the patio (Oh Bread, how do I love thee?!). Under normal circumstances I would have wanted a weekend away for Easter, but in this case the contented feeling of togetherness supplied all the adventure needed….
