Great was my surprise when I received a Whatsapp last evening. It was from an unknown number) and the message asked "where in the mountains is this cute little shop you advertise on Facebook?" I enlarged the profile photo and saw it was a friend, Linda from Marquard. I've since changed my phone and didn't have her on my new contact list.
I replied to her Whatsapp asking where they were staying in the Drakensberg. She said they were at Champagne Sports Resort which is opposite the shopping center and that they would be popping in this morning.
Linda's daughter, Mandie lived opposite us in Marquard Mandie's immediate neighbor was Trudie another good friend of mine.
I was thrilled to see Mandie. Linda and Trudie at my shop earlier today. Mandie's little boy, Luke, dashed up to me, arms wide open and hugged me. I was touched that this little six-year-old remembered the old 'aunt' who lived near him until last year.
Of course, we all had a wonderful chat and the ladies shopped for gifts in my shop as well. Even Luke; he bought a magnet with a lion on it for his granddad whose birthday it is tomorrow. He told me "My oupa will be 65 tomorrow"
The weather has turned unbelievably cold and at last we've had good rains. When the mountain
s opened up (while my friends were visiting), they were covered with snow . Luke insisted I walk outside with him and see the big mountains full of snow!
A few of the items which I advertised on Facebook this week
