Update : My Husband Francis

Hi all, I'm not sure who knows and who doesn't so I'm just emailing everyone.
On Friday 18th July, my Husband, Francis had a very bad Motorbike accident. He was travelling up Sparks rd and swerved to miss a car that crossed the road infront of him. He ramped his Yamaha R6 up an anthill and launched it 2m in the air, it travelled approx 10m airborn and summersaulting until it hit an elecrical box on the side of the road. His bike was broken in two and Francis came to land about 2m from the bike on his back.
He has a broken collarbone, multiple grazes, bruising and soft tissue damage to his back and legs. His Femur Tip (ball joint at the top of his left leg) is fractured and may need to be replaced. His pelvis is damaged, with his leg pushed up into the pelvic girdle. On Monday he is going in for a CTG scan and then the Specialist (one of the best) will plan for his reconstructive operation on Tuesday. He will be hospitalised for at least two weeks and it will take a few months for him to walk properly. He wont be able to drive for a while.
To everyone who has looked after us (Sav and I) a big THANK YOU! I couldn'tve coped without you all. Francis is positive but in a lot of pain, he has sent a THANK YOU as well.
Please note - he is at Entabeni, Fyfe Two ward, he has asked for any visits to be between 5:30-7pm weekdays and 2-3pm weekends - so that he can rest.
Much love.

My Blog Visitors!

How exciting! These are the locations of all my blog readers this month – see if you can spot your location- leave a comment and let me know where you are from.

Well, my life has been a tad unusual lately – I am on forced holiday (my music school runs in the school terms only) so besides being short in pocket I am going nuts with nothing to do…

Well, in my first week of holiday I went in to my Husbands College Campus in Durban North to do a talk on running a small business, it was great. I then ran a Courtroom drama exercise which was very cool too. I ended up spending the day with my Mum – we died my hair (thank GOD) and had a great time.

I have updated my blogs and facebook groups, have spent time resting, reading, playing with Sav and going to gym.

I’m having a hard time coping with my allergies – this is a very bad year for allergies, everyone is complaining. I have been on two courses of Steroids and I’m using the best meds available but to no avail…the red cheeks, stuffy nose and asthma continue. I do NOT like it.

Be blessed

*Thank you to those of you who have given me advice and help with regards to my personal family issue.

My Prophetic Paintings

Lately I have been drawn to paint encouraging and prophetic paintings for specific people…

I usually paint in a realism style – photo-realism and these are unlike anything I have ever painted before.

Quote for the day...

In response to Julius Malema and Zwelinzima Vavi saying that they will
KILL anyone who gets in Jacob Zuma's path to SA presidency:

"Of course all this is quite ridiculous; but not as ridiculous as
Julius Malema and Zwelinzima Vavi's claims that their threats –
because that is what they remain – were nothing more than expressions
of devotion to Jacob Zuma. It's one thing to say you're willing to die
for someone; it's another to say that you're willing to kill for them.
It seems that although the wheels of revolution are still spinning in
the heads of Malema and Vavi, the hamsters are well and truly dead"
