On Friday, after collecting Granny for baby sitting duties and dropping Ava off at school, Walter and I headed out to Bela Bela to attend his companies year end function. It has to be said, his company functions are always epic, whether it be their Christmas in July party or their year end functions, which have included trips to Mauritius, Cruises and a stay at The Palace Of The Lost City, we’ve always had a great time and this year was no different. We were treated to an all expenses paid, 3 day weekend at Mabula Game Lodge.
It was boiling hot when we arrived, so we quickly checked in and spent the afternoon at the pool sipping on pink cocktails. After a divine late afternoon nap, we started our preparation for the party that evening, a rock themed party which included a dinner in the beautiful boma setting at the main lodge, followed by a rock party with entertainment supplied by Guns ‘n Posers! The band were awesome and in no time we were all behaving like hooligans as we danced and head-banged to 80’s classic rock from Guns ‘n Roses and AC/DC. Walter works with a really great bunch of people and soon the party was very rowdy and wild. Despite the frequent power interruptions, which we were later to hear, was caused by a fire in the laundry room because of a huge electrical storm, we still managed to have a fantastic time, falling into bed well past 1am. I have not had a party like that since… well since Walter’s year end function last year!
