Day 298 #onedailypositive #Uisfor #fmsphotoaday #shadow #snaphappybritmums #project365 my feet were getting hot under the South African sun
Monday I went to SABC to finally sort the TV licence, however I am stillwating for confirmation that it has been cancelled. i then drove north of Pretoria to supervise Laser Logisitics collecting the cartons for Santa Shoebox. I then went to Menlyn Mall for a bit of shopping, before going to physio.
Today's blog post was the gentle art of persuasion with teens.

Tuesday morning took me to Reitvlei nature reserve again and on this visit for #TimeTraveller I photographed the birds. I spent the evening in the bar with my friend, eating and drinking.

Thursday was D day, the start of collecting and processing 7000 santa shoeboxes. I was baking cakes and gluten and dairy free brownies at 6am and then I arrived early for drop off to find a pile of boxes at the door. By 7pm we had collected and processed 1347 boxes.

Day 302 #onedailypositive #Yisfor #fmsphotoaday#writing #snaphappybritmums #project365 it has to be YOUR turn to write by now . I send far more letters and cards than I receive (@catherine_alwaysaredhead
you're excluded from this rant as is my mum and Louise) everyone loves to hear from The Chicken on her travels. The Chicken would love to hear from everyone else.
Friday was stressful, i'll not lie there was some tension between 'us' as the full time committee volunteers and 'them' the volunteers who come for a couple of hours, who we couldn't do without, well we could do without a few of them, telling us how to do things, which in their opinion can be done much better. I spent Friday night carving squashes ready for halloween tomorrow.
Day 303 #onedailypositive #Zisfor #fmsphotoaday#scarf #snaphappybritmums #project365 I was looking for a zebra print scarf, but thought this was better
Saturday and the last day for most people with the drop off, I'll have to tell you more about today in My Sunday Photo as we will be working from 8am till maybe midnight, using donations to make up whole boxes that either a) haven't been pledged or b) people have failed to drop off. I'll also add my photo prompt later on today.
Day 304 #onedailypositive #one #fmsphotoaday #trickortreat #snaphappybritmums #project365 I can't decide which ONE is my favourite and that green was difficult to cut so I had to abandon don the design and go simple
It's when I have weeks like this that I wish I wasn't doing the daily photo prompts and that I could instead use a PAD based on what I've actually been doing, so i've added a few more pictures to show you what drop off, processing and collection of Santa Shoeboxes actually involves.
