The long and mostly short of the last week…21 October , 2014
We’d been plotting a special surprise for one of the secret agents in our team…and then he happened to have a birthday, so it was as good an excuse as any. 😉
He obviously didn’t see it coming which is why I approached the gift like it might be pandora’s box haha!
Reading the card…
He’s rather well known for this phrase, it also happens to annoy the hell out of someone who annoys the hell out of me. 😉 Win-win!
Nicola, gardening with a golf club…as you do.
Pop of colour!
The gate had to be upgraded over the weekend (Thanks Dad!), because Polka accidentally realised she could jump through the middle panel.
Yay! Something we planted that wasn’t ripped out.
Super moody skies…
Do you see that ray of light? I’d like to think someone took that as a message.
Very pretty rainbow. You can’t see it on the photo clearly, but it was one of those where you could actually see all 7 colours.
Polka loves roadtrips!
How odd was that sand storm?! Not the best photo out there, but this is what it looked like from our place.
This is what it looked like from Bloemfontein. Thanks random internet person, whose photo I pinched. 😉
Very bestest cuddle buddies in the mornings.
Nicola just being super cute as always.
Summer round here means lots of ice cream.
And we enjoy every last bit… 🙂
Snooze piccie. Once those eyes open there’s no more peace and or quiet for the rest of the day.
Baking chocolate cake with Ouma.
Who says you can’t lick your elbow?
Finally! The big reveal. We’ve been sitting on this big news for almost 10 weeks!
I am very excited to be an aunt. 🙂
If we’re writing on balloons, Nicola wants in on the action.
Showing off her new sparkly pink bag to her friends. Everyone wants one! (Thanks Ouma!).
Nicola picked a mint for the kitchen. It really is great to have a garden. 🙂
Studying is going well…but on and on…
Work is full of cloak and dagger games…but mostly okay, and almost always interesting!
We are off to the dentist on Friday…it’s not going to be as peaceful as the last visit because it looks like Nicola has a cavity…
So very very broke…how the hell is there still a week left of this month till we get to payday?!
