Hello! Signal is VERY low. I have tried to send day by day, but it has not been possible.

Thursday, 13 December 2012.

Really busy day. Ran around from just before 9am to 11pm!

Fetched Liam in Walkerville, went grocery shopping for the holiday some more, drove to Roodepoort to fetch Tranquil Body Treats from the factory.

Tranquil Body Treats then delivered to Sandton to my friend Mercia, then delivered to my loyal customer Gina before going home.

Went to gym and dropped the kids as they were unpleasant nagging kids. L0L Went to Spar to get what I still didn’t have.

Back to gym for MY workout. 🙂 I am loving gym! Back home I packed for the trip to the Berg. Made supper… TV, bed!

Long day. By 5h12am I was on a treadmill at the gym! 🙂 Yay!! Me.

I dropped Kyla at work, packed some more, showered and by 10h40 we were sitting in traffic trying to get out JHB for roughly an hour!

After lunch at my favourite restaurant in Clarens, “The Artist Cafe”, we stopped in the Golden Gate National Park where we drank water from a mountain stream. So free spirited we are. Ha ha!

Noid the teacher came forward and Liam James was an eager student. Like a sponge, he absorbed all he could. 🙂 I have found he loves nature. He made us laugh lots.

Finally we arrive at Champagne Sports. It was raining heavily. We start unpacking and soon found Liam James came past us at a speed, sliding across the wet grass.
Noid, being just a big Liam was soon sliding down on his stomach! Up and down they went. Douglas and Jenna-Lee joined in. I tried to get pics but it is mostly one blur after another!

Finished unpacking, Dion and Liam James made boerewors rolls. We lay in the lounge listening to music and basically talking rubbish, until Dion and I went to bed at 11pm. Dion read, while I kept falling asleep trying to post this!

Noid says I must just write: “It rained”. Shame, we are yet to see be view of the beautiful mountain!

I suddenly attracted something very beige with my left guy, pink, swollen and sore. Not proper!

Noid took the kids shoe shopping and went to the bakery. I tidied up, read and dished up chicken a la king for lunch I had made at home.

Noid made the most amazing hamburgers for supper. Kids have been great considering everything is wet and activities limited indoors.
Noid was Dad’s taxi and drove the kids to the main entrance about four times for activities they wanted to do.

It rained. Wha ha ha! I admit it doesn’t bother me. It saves on the sun cream which is horrendously pricey, I can read, kids are thankfully old enough to go wherever and I am quite chilled.

Noid had a lazy day (most of my days are super lazy, which is like normal lazy …but with a cape on.) Watched some blur TV, tried to connect to the internet (NOT happening!).

We read, ate and generally I kept my eye closed as much as I can as it was throbbing.

Noid, made us chicken and steak and I prepared the “braai broodtjies” (a sandwhich grilled on a fire”) which was a must have for Noid. It was very nice.

We watched the movie “Jack and Jill” after which Noid and Douglas played Rummy Cup (sp?). Liam James and the girls and I watched Michael Buble giving it a Christmas song….then book and bed. 🙂

Monday, 17 December 2012.

I woke up at 5am, I know, not proper hey! I dressed, make up and all. I opened the curtain to see a wet land. Would have been a sexy honeymoon if you into that kinda thing. *wink*

The golf course was closed – wet! Thankfully it opened later and Noid and Douglas went to play. Liam chatted to me for a while and left me a sweet note. 🙂

Later I made some spaghetti which in my opinion wasn’t very nice. Really needed some more sauce. 😦 Anyhow – TV and bed.

Tuesday, 18 December 2012.

Not a good day. Period.

Highlight was the braai at the hotel in the evening with milkshake. Noid and the kids played table tennis, some dance game on x box and pool.

Wednesday, 19 December 2012.

Tension and anxiety is great at triggering Fibromyalgia pain. Perhaps many would agree with Noid that I bring it on myself.

Noid is playing golf, kids are watching a movie and I am in the bath. Hot. Trying to get rid of that axe lodged in my back feeling.

I include two pictures for this date. I have too many feet pics already this week and this one I kinda liked which I took by accident of my feet. One of my kids and I – Victoria, Wenchy and Liam James on our way to the braai. 🙂

PS. I miss going to the gym. So happy to hear myself thinking these words. :))


Only 6 months minus a few days of daily pics to go L0L – yikes!

I wish you enough – in sickness and in health, in good times and bad, in times of plenty and times of none – as long as you live –
