31 January 2011 – Picture of my goddess tattoo, off course taken by me with my BlackBerry…… I made sure the very talented Brent gave my goddess hips like me…. and she is holding a purple heart for bravery. I have chosen tattoo number 15 and have asked my dear husband for it as a Valentine’s gift. 🙂 Gonna be a sore one!!!!

“I am a canvas of my experiences, my story is etched in lines and shading, and you can read it on my arms, my legs, my shoulders, and my stomach. “

  • That is exactly how I feel about my tattoos…. it’s my story, my decoration, my security blanket, my joy, my pain…. my rush… my addiction…. 🙂
  • I would really like this book. 
  • Would have been great if I looked like her, but I don’t.
  • I do wish I could tattoo my entire top of my arms… I HATE THEM….. that way they will look pretty and tell a story…. instead of just flabby and horrid.
  • I had a client have a small shout at me today for something my boss messed up…. Off course all I could do was put a smile in my voice, try to enjoy her making ME feel like *I* PERSONALLY fucked it up and agree that off course the client is correct….. after which I told my boss I will have to hit him with a lead pipe in the library and he can call me Miss Scarlett. I don’t know when I was last so angry, or felt so raped and abused by WORDS. *sigh*
  • I felt like I needed a bath.
  • Every night I promise myself I must go to sleep earlier… every night I don’t. Silly Wenchy.
  • Dreaming of escaping to the Drakensberg with my husband. I love being alone in the mountains with him.  Besides Champagne Sports Resort where we got married *smile*….. there is another spot we LOVE visiting …. it is silent…. homely but private…. sensual and relaxing…. and Noid’s smiles in the mountains are different to any other place I have ever seen him.
  • Perhaps it is because we do not have enough time together, never mind ALONE….. I crave his attention, affection, uninterrupted. I need him. I want him. So glad he is MINE.
  • As I write this, it is 53 days, 6 hours, 20 minutes, 23 seconds until we go on our first Waltons Family holiday by the sea.
  • Six kids, two adults…. and the coast. 🙂
  • I must admit, I am rather excited…..
  • We have been away before with the kids, but never just Noid, me and our kids.
  • Planning on spending lots of family time – braai’s and laughter…. surf and sand… golf for Noid, reading for me… ice cream in cones, tidal pools…. seeing the sun rise and set over the sea is always special…. walking hand in hand with our kids all around us…. little bits of heaven that. Can’t wait!!!
  • Mel and her family should be in the area also, along with Heather and her family…. perhaps even Shireen… ahhhh an SAMomsOnline reunited get-away…. has it really been that long? 🙂
  • I wish you friendships that last forever.


    Bite me

    29 January 2011 – Took this picture of a spider outside,  next to the pool today… while Liam and I tried to get the creepy crawly running again… bloody evil thing that… but Liam and I won in the end. Liam was petrified I was gonna fall in the pool taking the picture.  He reminded me I am not the most graceful of creatures and rather clumsy. asshole

    • I like Milo milkshakes from Wimpy… new flavour for me. Not good for my ass. I so wish I was better at this emotional vs hunger eating  / drinking.
    • I love the new Bluebell and Thistle fragrance from Tranquil Body Treats.
    • Have paid our deposit for our first Waltons holiday by the sea, with many thanks to my husband.
    • At the time of writing this, it is 55 days, 4 hours, 18 minutes, 58 seconds, until Saturday, March 26, 2011 at 4:01:01 AM when we will be leaving. 🙂
    • I had a much better week last week. This week hasn’t been great, pretty crap actually. truth be told.
    • I have had lots of work, some projects given to me late, or where I have had to give assistance last-minute which means I fall behind on something else….with little energy to work extra at night as I have in the past. I just feel exhausted.
    • Physically I have not been well. I hate it! Perhaps I should not be allowed amongst the general population.
    • Perhaps like my friend QB, I am not user-friendly either!? Oh well, we can’t all look like Barbie with the Brady bunch moms personality all day long!
    • I received a huge electricity bill making me feel financially anxious all round.
    • I shouted at the IT person assigned to me for an issue with my laptop on Friday FOR GOOD REASON ~ in a very unsexy, loud, aggressive and death is imminent kinda voice. I can’t recall when I was last that angry at work… was met with a silent office when I put the phone down. Hate stooooopid people.
    • ….. and this Priest of the blog land is my confession.

    I want to walk in fields of gold.


    Hey… Today was a crappy kinda day for many reasons. That is all.

    I live in hope for tomorrow!

    28 January 2011 ~ The picture is a note I found from Victoria regarding Liam in my bag when I was cleaning it….. You would be correct in assuming reading is not something we see Liam do often!

    Hope your weekend is nice.

    27 January 2011 ~ My Tranquil Body Orders came today and I had ordered myself a Valentine Special which came with lovely hand made chocolate by Leigh~Ann. I love white chocolate and I love my vanilla everything body treats so that was all cool.

    Then later, my adopted son Kyle came round with a small biscuit gift bag from his Uncle Will as I am taking orders for Valentines day for him….currently have 200 biscuits sold. Yay!

    {Kevin and Kyle are currently doing South Park characters funny bits.}

    Okay, have to go finish supper. X

    I wish you enough,

    26 January 2011 ~ We had pancakes for pudding tonight since Noah is building an ark somewhere. I do like the rain, never met Noah however.

    Had a laugh at Liam tonight. He complained that they have not had enough Afrikaans lessons and he doesn’t think that is proper. I listened, agreed and I said I would e~mail his principal.

    So Liam says, ‘Could you please wait until Monday before e~mailing the principal?’ I off course had to ask ‘Why?’ which is usually where the trouble starts with Liam.

    Well…..dear Liam explained since he is a veteran at going for therapy, having been asked how he feels about stuff since he was five…. his fellow students have started confided in him….and well, he has already booked ‘patients’ into his free Afrikaans lessons until Friday.

    I am also to note that he starts every counselling session reassuring all that what they tell him will remain confidential and according to Liam there are many sad kids out there and they can cry a small river.

    I am also to be proud because by his own admission, Liam is always looking for a get rich quick scheme…but therapy….he is giving from the goodness of his heart.

    There you have it….. My son ~ a 14 year old therapist with a heart of gold, a sense of humour and a trusted confidant that doesn’t charge.

    Anyone else remember the movie ‘Catch me if you can’? 🙂

    Scary shit indeed!

    PS. Me being all for mental health and helping others, will mail the principal on Monday!

    Milo Milkshake Addiction.

    25 January 2011 ~ Late afternoon my daughter Victoria and I went to the shop as she is an avid reader {shame, wonder where she got that from?} and she had saved up the R170 to buy the sequel to the book she is busy reading. Proper grown up book….. I could not be more proud! She is 11!!!! Kick ass kid that, dramatic, over the top, but ass kicking.

    Off course darling Victoria also did have to buy the You magazine as that is her weekly fix of reading about celebrities and she takes it very seriously.

    The only time I personally buy that magazine, but I would buy a Huisgenoot….is when I am ill…and I am Afrikaans when I am sick.

    At this time, I just wanna place on record the book agreement for next month between my husband and I…..

    Anyway!!!! Victoria and I had milo milkshake before we tackled a spot of grocery shopping….which took a long time and we were quite exhausted by the end of it! At least there are once again bread, milk, cheese and Oros in the house….although I neglected to buy any cereals or lunch box treats…bright spark I am also did not buy kichel. Shocking. Have run out of money and enthusiasm now.

    Work was cool today. I continue to love the actual job, the people I work with and the company I work for. I am once again in a happy place at work.

    I did cry out of pure frustration in the bathroom at work today which had nothing to do with work, my lovely husband or my fabulous six kids!!

    Tonight’s parents evening was a waste of time for us as Douglas is one year behind Victoria so we heard it all last year. One more parents evening to go for this week…

    With great excitement we have told all the Waltons kids that we going to the sea side in 2 months and 1 day. I am soooooo excited. Our first proper family holiday!!! Accommodation booked, we are all set! Can’t wait.

    Okay, the mascara is burning my eyes….goodnight and chat tomorrow!

    24 January 2011 ~ Me by me…. Waiting for Kevin to finish cricket practise. Looks relaxing hey? It wasn’t.

    Not my best day. We had no aircon at work today… a huge corporate building, no windows, no draft….it was so unpleasant wiping sweat off my face! Seriously not sexy and I could not wait to leave. It was so hot and humid in that stupid building.

    Took Liam for an eye test. Gave him his spending limit on frames, he chose what he wanted and even so….once the test and this and that was added, it was still R400 more than what I budgeted. Oh yay.

    Then to fetch Kev, sitting in the hot car….home to do some work and then off to Jenna’s grade two parents evening. We have three of those this week, parents evenings…thrilling. At least got to spend an hour sitting on a carpet with Noid since the room was full which was funny.

    Home…make sure kids had eaten and put kids in bed. Feeling exhausted tonight and tearful.*

    * I miss my husband.

    23 January 2011 ~ Noid bought me a pretty dress and the black rose in my hair….and off we went for lunch with Noid’s parents and unexpectedly his sister. Was thrilled to see her.

    We had lunch at Stone Cradle which was a magnificent buffet in a beautiful location and tasteful contemporary decoration.

    I honestly never even ate from all the different serving sections, there was just too much choice! What was awesome was that although a large venue the food did not have a mass produced flavour, nor look and was truly great! I would highly recommend the buffet, although I would not bring young children to the venue.

    We spent over four hours at lunch and visiting together. 🙂 I had a great time…. and a really, really nice weekend.

    22 January 2011 ~ My darling, sexy husband during our lunch time date at a Portuguese restaurant in Bruma.
