Crazy Festive Season

It wasn't all smooth sailing this festive season and two really awesome friends of mine lost friends of theirs one in an accident and she was only 21 and one to a heart attack. Guys my heart is so sore for both of you and you in my thoughts a lot.

I got robbed at the ATM at 11:15 in the morning. It's not the first time I have been robbed, my car was broken into twice in Centurion and my home was robbed when I lived on a plot and T was very little. BUT those ones where when I wasn't around and though you feel violated etc it is somehow not as bad. Three men lots of shouting and screaming and T was in the car. It was scary and unsettling and I don't wish it on anyone. I am sad about the 2k I lost as a single mother never has enough money, but I am grateful to my guardian angels that I didn't get hurt physically and that T stayed in the car. He couldn't see from his angle what was happening thank goodness or who knows what he might have done. I couldn't sleep for a few days afterwards kept seeing the guy that did all the shouting every time I closed my eyes.

Thank you to my friends who were so supportive I really needed it, and couldn't have managed that all alone, one of you was overseas at the time your sms's meant the WORLD to me, you were so angry on my behalf and you understood perfectly that it hit me emotionally!! I even got a grocery gift voucher from a good friend in Johannesburg and that also meant a great deal!! Thanks guys I am truly blessed to have so many wonderful mates!!!

So sorry Lulu. Happened to me too though not armed robbery but card fraud and I lost R1000 before I stopped the card. You can never say its not going to happen to you. I try to use ATM's that are situated in shops in full view of customers and only at certain times of the day. Happy that you and your little chap were not harmed. Even though this has happened to you dont have a victim mentality. South Africans are tough!
