For her 50th birthday she organised a 100km steam train trip to the historical town of Cullinan for her ten best friends. Marcelle was included even though val suspected that her friend was having an affair with her husband.
It was a great day out. Lunch was a lavish affair in the Cullinan Diamond Inn. Everybody drank too much. After all, they weren’t driving home. There was an organised trip down the old mine. At one stage all the lights were switched off to give atmosphere. Someone screamed, then giggles. At 4pm it was time to come puffabillying back to Pretoria.
