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

I crave iced coffee in summer.

  • Bullet blogging is better than no blogging. Nê?
  • I spotted the above sign on my path of least destruction today.
  • It made me smile.
  • A cheese sandwich tried to kill me this past Sunday and Monday. Vomiting is super fun.
  • It annoyed me so much. Stealing my time feeling sick.
  • The area we live in is currently at war with water. Or not. We just seldom have any.
  • I love that my job only starts at 10am. I am somewhat human by then.
  • I must sleep. At once.

I wish you enough,

Wenchy

In the time of Corona – Donating Plasma

My 21 year old daughter Victoria tested positive for #covid19 virus in June 2020. 🤒

Our Victoria

Thankfully she recovered fully 🥰. As always, “Killer Queen” Victoria has chosen the “how can I make a positive difference in the world” approach and registered to donate plasma for a clinical trial.

This convalescent plasma is being evaluated as a possible treatment for currently ill COVID-19 patients. Victoria has been accepted and will be donating plasma this week.

If you have tested positive with the virus, have fully recovered and meet the other criteria, please consider donating plasma.

I’d appreciate if you can share this information with others as applicable.
