From the diary of an old villager to town


Today, Saturday, 9th January 2016, the rest of the family returns to hear our report on how we have been keeping the family fort secure while everyone was away. Athena here in charge (or as my grandfather has christened me, Princess Athena Karogo Bogerara Gaesasara Soaba - never mind, it's a long name, don't worry about it).

My cousins Karina and Ian were extremely vigilant in keeping watch over the entirety of the fort.

My aunt Bibi ensured we had something in our stomachs before nightfall.
My mother took care of nutrition and what we were eating during the festive season.
Aunty Mimi took care of our finances in case we all starved.
My uncles KD and Tite tried their best in fitting every gadget in place so we could watch some colourful things flying in the air. And when we felt bored we settled down to Tinker Bell's adventures, only that uncle Tite would add flavour to all that jazz with more jazz pieces that tingle the senses (my grandfather's favorite tunes, that is... duhuh)....

By nightfall and at supper time my great grandmother read us some lovely stories from a worn out, dusty looking book we call the family Bible...

And yes indeed, 2015 has been, well, a pretty good year...
