Last week’s update

19 November , 2014


Sunrise from my room. I think this view is probably my favourite thing about this house…well, one of them at least.


I bet this guy gets pulled over a lot!


Big surprise when I tried to lock the door one day. It moved against my hand! Little lizard was apparently using it as a sun bathing spot. Shame, poor little guy had such a fright he hid inside the door…this photo would have been cuter if I managed to get him peeping at me instead of the tail end (just missed it).


Yellow pin cushions at my parents’ place.


Loeries, having a feast in my parents’ apricot tree.


We went for a Milky Lane ice cream. Nicola was clowning around while we waited for the ice cream to arrive. I just love this photo with the blurry shoppers in the background.


Stop taking photos of me…


Fine…one smile.


New tekkies from Ouma, in all her favourite colours.


Milkshake mo πŸ™‚


School class photo day. Take two. For the first day madam wanted me to produce a bun…which I did. For the second day not that…I said how about a french plait? Sure. When I was done she touched it and greaked out. No, no, definitely not that. So the next request was two braids down the side that meets and changes into a pony.

Breathe in…breathe out…if we start getting into this every day, I’m going to have to start getting up sooner!


Peanut butter love.Β  I used the opportunity to catch a video with all Nicola’s Chrtistmas wishes on, and some very interesting views on the whole event.

Haha, apparently number one item is a hamster teddy, in black, on a chair playing a guitar! I said what if Santa can’t find something like that? No worries, the yetties and the elves will just make it. Number two and three on the list sound a bit more doable to me…but they weren’t on my list of things I thought would make the list this year. We’ll see…

Ps! Oh remember when I told you last week that I was feeling pretty shitty? Eventually I popped in at the doctor. Turns out I had bronchitus, pink eye and middle ear infection all in one. Good times. I got booked off for the rest of the week. I have sooooo much work, that I seriously considered going in to work anyway…but I decided screw it, I’m staying in bed, and slept most of two days solid.



  1. When the Doc books you off, it is for the best … always take it…

    • I’m glad I did…I was really feeling terrible. On 25 Nov 2014 6:47 AM, “123 Blog Myself” wrote:


  2. Oh the hair – endless story for us too. A bit easier now that it is shorter

    • Most days I get away with a pony, but some days she wants something a bit more exotic! On 25 Nov 2014 4:11 PM, “123 Blog Myself” wrote:


  3. your hairstyling skills are amazing!!!! Also, I had two kids with tubs of peanut butter (those exact bottles) earlier. but dipping carrots into them πŸ™‚

    are you 100% better now?

    • Carrot and PB, mmm…I haven’t tried that combo yet.

      I’m not 100% better, probably about 75% if I had to put a number to it. On 25 Nov 2014 8:35 PM, “123 Blog Myself” wrote:


  4. So glad you went to the doc and got sorted. I love these little glimpses into your life…and it reminds me that I need to start carrying my camera with my again.

    • That’s probably the main reason I always have my phone with me. πŸ˜‰ On 27 Nov 2014 12:47 PM, “123 Blog Myself” wrote:
