Hosepipes in the Cedarberg

May 25th, 2009 by dad

Summer seems a long way off now, but it wasn’t that long ago (March) that Dorje and his friend Luca came with for a weekend away with a few friends.

Unlike the previous time, we got there in the 3 or 4 hours expected.

As could be expected, on such a hot weekend, water provided most of the entertainment. For the adults, it was the burst pipe to the toilets. For the children, the hosepipe.



Dorje and Luca weren’t the only two interested. Millwall (the dog, named after the unsuccessful British football team of which the owner is a long-suffering fan) also got into the action.

Griffin looked on enviously, but since he already goes through 30 nappies a day, he was kept well-away from the hosepipe.

Why is not a question

May 24th, 2009 by MUM

Oma and Dorje were wandering on Sybilla’s farm in Napier collecting nails and screws lying randomly on the ground after building construction. Oma asked Dorje to put the bits and bobs in her pocket which he (for whatever reason) chose not to do

OMA “Why don’t you want to do it?”

DORJE “Because!”

OMA “Because is not an answer.”

DORJE “Why is not a question” (:lol:)

Human Holes

May 21st, 2009 by MUM

Today Dorje pushed 2 kids off the jungle gym at aftercare. So I asked him why? So, he tells me he was thinking how to make a hole in the ground, so then the idea came to him

I AM floored … I told him you can’t use humans to make holes in the ground (:rolleyes:)
