He he! And at least it was a vegan restaurant! :-)

No problem about link! 

Your sister's name doesn't ring a bell. 

Working from home is just the best thing in the world. Don't get discouraged - you will get there. I earn just enough for my basic living needs, no extras. I do enjoy editing/proofreading, and the benefits and comfort for me in being at home are immeasurable.

I kept the intention/desire ('work from home work from home work from home') ticking over inside me...in a light, happy, untroubled-by-how-or-when-it-will-happen sort of way. It may have helped!

Yes the MaryAnne food was very salty and fatty! I loaded up on the raw DIY salads, then had a huge bowl of roast veg and hummus. And have been drinking water voraciously ever since! In my defence, I last ate in a restaurant about 2 years ago. 

Thanks for chatting!

Hi Galina

Sorry about the link!

My sister is Miemie du Plessis and I think her house is in High Street. I don’t think she's been in town for a while tough. She lives in Pretoria and is the children's book publisher for LAPA Uitgewers. I do some translation work for her now and then, but unfortunately it's not enough to keep the pot cooking. I would LOVE to be able to work from home, but don’t know how I'm going to do it. I dream of moving back to Kaapsehoop (close to Nelspruit on the escarpment), and if I can work from home it might just be possible. Do you enjoy your work?

We live in a suburb called Briza in SW.

Oh, my partner and I actually decided not to go to Mary-Ann's again. Her food is just way too fatty and salty! It wasn't like that the first couple of times we went there (more than two years ago), but she suddenly started covering everything in oil, nut dressings and salt. And her books actually got me interested in healthy eating! She's doing a great job, I'm very grateful for the interested she sparked in me, but wow, just can’t handle eating that way anymore.

I'm going to send you a friend request if you ant to chat more. :-)

Great 'meeting' you here!
