Is not for the faint hearted!
There I was today. Met mom at 9 am – her place. And then we went into the streets.
First to Home affairs to apply for old age pension for her. Met with the usual incompetance and total disdain as from most government offices. Now we have to go to yet another spot, but the people could not, or rather, would not, tell us where that was. Got told to phone Telkom’s directory enquiry…
Centurion Mall was next on the list.
But first we had a Cinnabon 😉 Always a good way to start any expedition!!
Got Mom’s microwave, and then shopping for the biscuits we’ll be baking come Tuesday. Seems people don’t want bags, but they will always buy something to eat. And cookies are usually a firm favourite. Trick is to catch them on payday with something delicious.
Fact that it’s such hard work is completely besides the point. We will do it, and if we can make at least some profit, all’s well. Unfortunately, to make up the sum of my expenses, we’ll have to triple the amount we spent today and hope that people will buy everything!!
Still, I suppose we have to start somewhere. If it goes well, perfect. As long as we at least sell what me made now. Hopefully before the things go stale…
We got everything we need, so hopefully no inbetween trips when we start the actual baking.
Then we had lunch and then home.
Where I am now.
Quite tired – walking around for a few hours is no joke!!
And thought, maybe I should write something.
Even if only for you guys to wish me well in this particular venture 😉
And this is what I’m listening to now…
Is it not just beautiful?
Hope your day has been as good as it could be…
