#nofilter beauty outside my door.


 I have been loving the rain. ☔
.
 My severe toothache turns out to be an “angry” infection under a tooth. It is the most toothache I have felt in a super long time. So, antibiotics and painkillers.
.
 The dosage of painkillers is making me tired but is very much needed. I’m seeing my lovely Dr Phillip from Fresher Breath Houghton again in two weeks. The most caring and gentle human who has access to very large needles. 
.
 My little garden from Checkers is coming along beautifully. Apparently I’m really good at growing Sunflowers and Kale! If that is not ying and yang, I don’t know what is.
.
 There seems to be a second wave  for the love of air fryers. #airfryerrecipes and are popping up everywhere! Mine is a number of years old already but I’ve used it maybe four times. Yes, I’m leaning towards Googling “can you make cake in an #airfryer? ” 藍

Manic Tuesday

I had a Monday of a Tuesday.

My day ended with a killer toothache. I can’t wait to see Dr PHILLIP. Love that man. Fresher Breath Houghton

The #americanelections ☠️ – that is all.

 I’m predicting seven goals for the Liverpool FC game. (5-0 close enough #ynwa #lfc)

 So much gratitude for waking up and seeing #teambuns BunsOut Burgers daily.

 SirNoid set out on an extensive exercise and weight loss regime towards the end of September 2020. He is going exceptionally well. I admire his dedication and discipline. Well done! Inspirational for sure.

 Ms Hayley Joy Shop is having a #monthofjoy instead of #blackFriday Hayley’s Joys is fabulous like that. I’ve got an impressive black based basic pieces collection, which we are now expanding into navy! I’m very excited by this. Ms Hayley made me a special cold shoulder top (my favourite, favourite cut) from fabric I admired. I look forward to showing it to you all!!

Beetroot chips are evil

🌺 Sometimes the ride is not smooth, but functional.
.
🌺 When I’m out and about and I see lots of cars, I always wonder where they are going, what they are doing and why they not at work.
.
🌺 I ate a beetroot chip today and broke a tooth. Imagine. So healthy I am being and my body thanks me by assaulting a tooth just minding its own business. Tomorrow I’m eating Krispy Kreme Rosebank – no tooth will move an enamel. My body is extra like that.
.
🌺 I’m putting my hair up daily because of the heat 🔥. Not my best look, but I hate the stupid heat.
.
🌺 I’m getting into the groove with getting to know people, suppliers and what to ask for at my new place of work.
.
🌺 I’m sucking at remembering names and am calling a guy who started just before me “new guy”. 😂 I blame Victoria. 👈
.
🌺 Struggling to find a lekker Audible book at the moment. Recommendations welcome. Just no romantic nonsense, futuristic, sci fi or time travel zombie crap.
.
I wish you enough,

Wenchy

My special ones.

 The children born from my heart. Blood does not a family make. Love does.
.
Everyday I open the curtains hoping for a little overcast. 
.
 Driving around town daily I am so aware of every beggar at the traffic light. I wish I could help everyone.
.
 My skin is not looking wonderful. Not sure what I’m doing wrong or if it is just the mask / heat combination.

Can’t hold the phone to write more

🧡 I spotted this from @blantons_bourbon on my travels today. Thought it was pretty cool.
.
🧡 Lack of #sleep and an excessive #stress response has thrown me into a kick ass #fibromyalgia trigger. It feels like every hair on my skin, the very pores hurt.
.
🧡 I’m doing this drivers test for my #insurance. Its kinda like Driving Miss Daisy but with no intelligent conversation. Can’t mess it up.
.
🧡 @chanty_nailed_it from @hairandskinexperts1 did my #halloween #nails today. #Orange is not a colour I have played with often.
.
🧡 Am so very thankful for my work at @bunsoutburgers   #teambuns rock.

Regret is not for the weak.

🍇 The past two days I’ve been tearful but no crying. Then I phoned my Kev in the 🇬🇧 UK and finally the tears just rolled down my cheeks.
.
🍇 He spoke about a family unit that doesn’t exist. He was stating a fact, the obvious. My Kev doesn’t pack for guilt trips.
.
🍇I felt the failure.
.
🍇 All I ever truly wanted was the white picket fence. To have the home my grandparents gave their children, and their grandchildren. A place of safety, consistency and unconditional love.
.
🍇 I think I got the unconditional love right. Not towards myself, but definitely towards others.
.
🍇 You only truly get one shot at this. They should teach that in Life Orientation at school but I guess #safesex is important too. Regret is not for the weak.

I wish you enough

I cried for you.

🕸️ #halloween themed #carrot #cake from Gravity Cafe in #Linden. It was most enjoyable.

🕸️ The #heat has a contract out on my well-being. I’m fighting a very sweety battle.

🕸️ I’ve seen at least four #mcclarens this week and a luminous green #porche. #lockdown has clearly not affected everyone equally.

🕸️ Congratulations to the newly crowned #MissSA2020 Shudufhadzo Musida 💜💐 Miss South Africa – Rise #African child, Rise!

🕸️ I played #YNWA really loudly in my car and had an ugly cry. I miss my children so very much. 😔

Music of the night

💋 To be back in Joburg Theatre was a gift. I’ve seen it packed to the brim, and I’ve now experienced the first production in the Mandela Theatre during #COVID19

💋 Cantiamo – A Mzansi Opera Celebration featuring Vivacious Sounds was exquisite. ❤️

💋 This 31 degrees needs to go. #makeuptutorial or not, it runs off my face.

💋 This past two weeks I am constantly hungry. Like even for specifics. Same body, who dis?

💋 #farewell2020 is a thing with friends scattering across the globe. I’m starting to think I should be going somewhere. #SaniPass anyone?

Sleeping with a hair mask is so sexy.

  • Victoria had her annual haircut today. Very pretty.
  • It wasn’t so hot. My prayers were answered.
  • I actually got to do some admin today. Winner!
  • Lasagna for dinner was good.
  • I’m in a Crème Soda kinda mood.
  • Thanks for that own goal. #ynwa
  • I smiled at so many things today. Including a blossom flower thing that blew into my car from this tree type bush, as if it was just like “Hi friend!”
  • A working Wench, is a happier Wench.
  • I wonder what my boss thought today when I responded to one of his messages with #yassssqueen!

I wish you enough,

Wenchy
