December reflections

It was a sad December for my family, it doesn't really feel like we've had a real Christmas.  This was my December...

Ruby is my joy, my heart, my love

My sister Rose-Marie Ann Drysdale passed away peacefully on 22 December 2011, after a long battle with cancer
Princess Elizabeth made Christmas day bearable for a family hit by tragedy

Elizabeth adores her daddy, and Robbie is such a good dad

My children got a new scratch block.  Boss cat (Ruby) has claimed it as her own, and poor Bella is not allowed near it!  How does one teach kitties (and children) to share??

Our new year's day tradition of walking at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens endures - I started this tradition in 2008.  It was wonderfully cool and quiet as Lynn, Richard, Connor, Leonie and I strolled through the beautiful gardens, and then had a leisurely breakfast under the trees.  Conversation was around goalsetting and plans for 2012


  1. Hi Ali, What a beautiful photo of Rose-Marie. This post of yours and the photos are beautiful!!! I truly pray that 2012 is going to be a stunning year for you.

  2. As usual your photos are stunning Ali,
    Rose-Marie in particular xxx
