It’s Freedom Day today here in South Africa, Celebrating the first non-racial national elections where everyone no matter what colour/race or religion had the right to place their vote. I remember the day so clearly (27 April 1994) , there was much panic as well as excitement at the changes happening in South Africa at the time. We’ve come a long way since then, with a long way to go too. But I sure am proud to have been apart of that change ;-)
I promised to let you in on a little more of my sister Gaye’s and my relationship- and OH dear Lord she is going to kill me I think- hee hee
We weren’t always close ( as most siblings are) and fought like cat and dogs in our teens. Gaye was the stubborn one, me the joker and well lets just say that sharing a bedroom at the ages of 17 and 18 had it’s drawbacks- lol.
Gaye would throw her toys out the cot about something I left lying around ( which was often- ooops) and I would think it funny and burst out laughing at her- mmmmmmmmm, I learnt that wasn’t a good thing- as WACK, I would get whatever she was holding in her hand over my head ( not softly either- lol). She broke a few hairbrushes over my head while we were teens and sharing a room- BWHAHAHA, I must admit, laughing more did NOT help the matter. lol. Sorry sis, but they were funny times and I still laugh at it. Mom would have the sh-ts and tell us to take it outside and that she would buy us boxing gloves –hahahaha.
But that all changes when we landed up moving out and growing up I suppose. Gaye and I both landed up working in the SAME Advertising house too! She worked in Traffic and I in the design studio. And here we are again- working side by side doing what we love- DESIGNING!
Love you sis and you mean the world to me ;-)
