A WANNABE GRANNY'S MUSINGS

Being of the old school I try not to stare when I see a beautiful young mother-to-be wearing a skimpy tight top over her wonderfully rounded pregnant belly.

In the "olden Days" preggy dresses were long, voluminous and most demure and concealing, so it takes a while to get used to seeing a very pregnant woman wearing a pair of tight pants, a skinny little tight top with that delightful shaped, slightly tanned, tummy peeing out boldly.

I have even seen a belly ring in at very pregnant tummy !! Ouch.... hope the little fellow inside is not too close to that ....

Baby Boomer maternity dresses were actual "tents" , and I am cautiously delighted to see the change in fashion even if it is a little different to say the least.

But what am I going to do with all those maternity dresses I have been keeping for my own daughters and daughters in law for all these years. ?

Imagine their faces when I produce that midnight blue cheesecloth dress, hand smocked in silver gossamer thread by my own Mum ? It has at least five metres of material in it, and could serve as an tent for a hockey team on a hot summer's day !!

Mind you it is so old now there is probably more cheese than cloth there now, its taken them so long to get "hitched" so maybe I should throw it away as grand children are looking less and less likely these days with all the career women I have in the family....

We have always been a family heirloom type family.

My Mum offered me her wedding dress which she wore n 1944 just after the war...., it was made of ivory embossed velvet and my wedding was on the hottest day of the year !!

I had to say no however to the head piece which was shaped like Queen Victoria's crown, and although it was very beautiful and most intricately made with fine bone floral filigrees work, also in ivory, it would have looked rather odd in the eighties !!

The lace and net of the veil had all but disintegrated sadly so I had to pass on that too.

I can just imagine those minxes of mine "Oh goodness, Mum has kept her maternity dresses for us, how are we going to duck out of this dilemma?"

Mind you, if they manage to by-pass the family wedding dress and the preggy dresses, I will get them for sure with the Christening dress I still have from the arc !!

The family christening dress was handed down from the last century and arrived in the country in an ox wagon, it was found by the of silver fish sadly but Mum was an excellent seamstress so we could not escape whatever we did !!

Lying in a box wrapped carefully in tissue paper, exquisitely hand worked and embroidered, it is now yellow from age and is very special, oh my grandchildren will look delightful in it I just know it !!

I also kept the family pram, it is up in the top cupboard in the spare room, I looked at the modern jogging prams in contempt the other day, thinking that my grand babies would be a great deal more superior in our old family pram.

These modern baby carriages are very nifty the way they fold up in an instant, but my old baby carriage is really regal, and when I am baby sitting I will not get a bad back as the carriage is high enough for one not to have to bend over !

It is also sprung like a model T Ford and I can just picture myself sitting in the park, just one finger gently resting on the fine carved bone china handle will rock that wee bairn to sleep in an instant ... I just know it,

None of this racing around the park with one of those ugly three wheelers bumping my grand children into a stupor !!

The lining is pretty old, but it has lasted remarkably well I think, Aunty Poppy brought it out from the UK in that same old Ox wagon in 1892 !! Of course I have to be prepared for the fact that the girls might object to the colour - it is a deep violet, but it is made of the finest silk imported from India, but slightly tatty, maybe I will take it along to Jacobs and see if they can line it again .........



Other people's memories ....

Here are my own memories as a child:

My father was a very good shot - rifles mainly - and he had a good collection of his own when we were little. On Saturday mornings, he'd be up at about 4 a.m. don himself a hunting hat from his collection in the passage, and go off to bag a kudu or impala to make biltong. Nothing would be wasted of these animals in those days - someone would always want the skin, we got venison galore, food for our staff, some for our dogs, he kept the good looking horns, and made tables, using the horns as legs. He made the tables himself, and they came out beautiful, with their lovely smoked glass tops and copper edges. And everyone knew my dad's biltong, I'm sure. Of course the weaponry and ammunition were freely available at T.J. Otte Gunsmiths. Those were the days when there were no serious restrictions with firearms.

Around the corner from T.J. Otte's was a sweet shop. My dad used to take my sister and myself there, we'd chose sweets for ourselves, and then he'd do his own purchases. From time to time when he was working in his garage, at our home in the Suburbs, he'd say ' Carol, look behind that tin of paint', and there would be a little jar of sweeties 'left behind by the mice', for us.

Every Friday afternoon we'd go for 'Tea in Town' - my ran, my mom, my sister and myself. We'd either go to Haddons or Meikles. We'd have milkshakes and cake, and we'd know everyone else in the room too, in those days. It was a real meeting place - my god-mother, Edna Byrne, who used to teach KG 1 at Hillside School - remember her? would often join us too.

In 1963, at the age of 3/4, I went to 'Little People's Nursery School', which was just down the road from us in the Suburbs. I remember my first day there - I arrived in my favourite red corduroy trousers, walked through the little pedestrian gate, and slipped in the mud, so being filthy all day - good impression. Then later, Hillary Levy persuaded me to climb to the top of the jungle gym with her, and needless to say, I fell, giving myself a lovely black eye. All that on my first day - an accident waiting to happen.

OK, I challenge anyone to come up with memories of when they were younger than that. Growing up in Bulawayo was tremendous - what can YOU remember?

Carol MacKenzie.

Zimbabwe Trade & Investment Exchange
1-Day Conference & 1-Day Business-to-Business Meetings
16-17 November - Johannesburg, South Africa

The current situation in Zimbabwe and southern Africa calls for the organisation of a major trade and investment exchange event which will focus on all economic sectors.

The Zimbabwe Trade & Investment Exchange will take place in Johannesburg, South Africa on Monday 16 November with a full day conference, followed by a full day dedicated to business-to-business meetings on Tuesday 17th November. The theme of the event is Rebuilding Zimbabwe: the Challenges & Opportunities to outside Investors. The theme will reflect changes for the better and hope for the future. Given the general scope of the event, sectors which will be included are: financial services, agricultural and manufacturing opportunities; infrastructural projects; logistics and transport; tourism; health services and of course mining. But as important as any sector should be the legal framework for investments.

The conference aims to promote Zimbabwe's potential for business and investment as well as instill a sense of confidence and encouragement to potential investors. The event is supported by Zimvest, African Sun, Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Trade & Invest Africa and Business Day.

7) BULAWAYO NEWS

APPEAL
Bulawayo Help Network is making an appeal on behalf of one of our colleagues who is himself of pensionable age but who nevertheless selflessly contributes of his time and energy to one of our retirement homes. This man, who wishes to remain anonymous, has recently had to undergo surgery which is going to cost him US$4,500, a cost well beyond his own means.
We ask you to trust us on this by respecting his wish to remain anonymous. Bulawayo Help Network will be happy to receive any donations on his behalf.

AUSTRALIA - Property Prices Set to Soar

Property prices across Australia have jumped almost 6 percent this year and will continue to rise even in the country's most expensive suburbs, experts have said. The average Australian home has gained $28,194 in value since January this year and is now worth almost half a million dollars at $477,865, according to the RP Data-Rismark Home Value Index.

The Market is Heating Up - This is the Time to Invest

We had an excellent response to our last ad in the Morning Mirror, with a number of property investors wanting to invest in property in Australia. We are currently working with these investors from southern Africa on Joint Venture Projects whereby they put a deposit into one of our residential developments & we offer 20% returns on the amount invested. At the end of the development phase, the investor owns the property outright. Since the recession, banks have tightened up on lending making opening up new tracts of residential land difficult for developers. As a result, Wealth Acceleration Group began looking at additional ways to fund our projects. We believe that this Joint Venture Project offers investors an excellent strategy to get into property in Australia.
We intend making a trip to South Africa to meet with investors in JHB/DBN/CT to discuss all the details of the JV. Alternatively, investors are welcome to come to Australia, meet with us & look at the projects for themselves.
For more information contact: Karin Bailey Wealth Acceleration Group kb@wag-online.com.au www.wag-online.com

18) TUITION

Is your son or daughter having difficulty with O or A Level Mathematics, Physics or Chemistry?

Do the A Level classes contain 30 students rather than 10? Classes this size do not allow for much individual help.

If so, I can coach your son or daughter in the above subjects, having had 35 years experience teaching these subjects. I take only one student at a time, which ensures that the student has individual attention and help.
Are you having problems with expensive inflexible payrolls? If so, I can develop an extremely reasonably priced tailor made payroll system for your business, mine, farm or institution.
I also offer computer courses in MS Windows operating system, MS Word word processing, MS Excel spreadsheet, MS Access database, MS Project Project Design, desk top publishing, AutoCAD computer aided design, MS Outlook Express e-mail, Internet browsing and search, Corel Draw, Corel PhotoPaint graphic design and digital photography.
