Happy New Year and New CU + freebie

Happy New Year to all of you..! Gosh, seems like I’ve been gone for years and it’s taken this week for me to get the sand out my head (mmmm, ok so maybe the brain is still sitting on the beach a bit- lol).

We had a very different Christmas/summer vacation this year with actually 4 different ‘Christmas family’ days. As you all know, my kiddo’s are working out of the country right now and were only going to be ‘in South Africa’ for 10 days starting end of November… so we decided to have a very early Christmas lunch with all the parents/grand parents at our favourite Resturant Yin Pin. This way, everyone got to see them before they came up to us for the last 4 days of their stay.


Joe (the resturant owner/manager and chef) went all out to make it the BEST fun and wonderful lunch we have ever had together. We all exchanged a small gift with each other which can be seen displayed on a table behind us.


ahhh my kiddos who I miss and love with all my heart!


Vernon (Waynes dad) had never had traditional chinese/sushi before and was soo worried about what he was going to get as ‘food’ . We were all teasing him that he would be getting ‘fish eye soup’ to start… Even Joe got in on the jokes and after telling dad we were teasing.. he ate the most during our lunch- BWAHAHAH


Then it was our time to spend the last 4 days with our kiddos and we did their Christmas @ Bushmans River ( our holiday cottage)..


Kristy is the best to have around at Christmas time as she is soo excitable about her gifts and sharing them with others that she gets us laughing so hard as she jumps up and down with excitement. I missed her sooo badly on Christmas day!


And our quiet traditional Christmas day was spent with my mom and dad and of course our darling ‘fur babies’.. who start nudging the gifts under the tree looking for theirs.. too clever! lol


Summer holiday time with friends.. boating time with of course packed cooler boxes with beer and wine.

We had a lot of fishing, boating and fun times with all our friends we miss so much while being up here.. but our favourite holiday time is always……….


those quiet peaceful moments walking our dogs down the beach.

Well, holidays are over (even though I feel I need a holiday after the holiday- lol).. and it’s back to work for this gal..

LAST CHANCE 50% off + Bday Grab Bag

Oh my gosh, my 50th Birthday celebrations and party have to be the best yet! lol. Maybe getting older isn’t so bad when you can laugh so much your stomach muscles are sore for two days afterwards – and being told I should wear my ‘fancy dress’ outfit on a regular basis - BWAHAHA. I also lost my voice completely and it only came back on Monday. I decided on a 60’s themed party (being a 60’s baby) and everyone went all out dressing up and seriously making it the best PARTY ever. Friends flew in from far and wide and I have memories to last a lifetime and giggles that pop out with spur of the moment THANK YOU to all of you and of course my dearest hubby Wayne for making my 50th so special and making me feel like a young chicken of 30!
