From my Blog:
Dear Family and Friends We hope you have had a wonderful 2018. Ours has been fuller than we expected, with a mix of highs and lows! We started with Vivian in and out of hospital after her heart surgery last December. Then, at the end of July, Mum fell and broke her hip. She also spent a few days in hospital getting a replacement, but has now almost fully recovered. A happier theme has been Cats and Kittens. Viv’s two Persian Chinchillas have produced 3 litters of four, three and two kittens. She managed to justify keeping one (Baymax) on the grounds that he was injured by a shelf falling on him. Actually he is very cute and much loved by the whole family. The backdrop to 2018 has been the stunning view of False Bay from our house. Our new home was built 70 years ago by Mr. Sly…Read More
2018 has been a tough year for Mum. On July 24, she fell and broke her hip. We are SO grateful to the doctors and staff at Victoria Hospital in Wynberg for the outstanding care they gave her. After her hip replacement op, an amazing physio friend helped Mum with rehab, as did the wonderful staff at Nerina Gardens. At age 88, Mum is walking again (with a walker) and back in her own room at Nerina Gardens. This has been a set-back and Mum is definitely more frail than before the fall. She is also naturally nervous about falling again, so it has been a confidence-shaker. Thank you to all who have prayed for her. Prayers are appreciated! She has made a wonderful recovery, and we are grateful to God.Read More
The Sunrise Readers The Sunrise Readers were first written in the mid 1980s, and published by Longman Zimbabwe – co-authored by Vivian Jenkins and Chrissie Lewis. Approved for use in government schools in Zimbabwe, within the decade, they became the core-readers of choice in most schools in the country. In 2017, Vivian and Chrissie were asked to revise the Sunrise Readers by Pearson Education Africa. They have now been approved by the Ministry of Education in Zambia, and are being marketed to schools in Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, Malawi, Mozambique, and – most recently – in South Africa. https://www.facebook.com/sunrisereaders The Step-Up Readers in 2015, Vivian was asked to write a series of supplementary readers to go with the PEARSON EDUCATION AFRICA Step-Up English scheme, in line with the new curriculum. She wrote one reader per Grade for Grades One – Six. Readers for Grades One, Two, Three and Four are currently…Read More
