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.
