Baking some yummy-ness…

I was soooooo busy baking my yummy vanilla cupcakes with coffee frosting, that I almost forgot about my travel lane memory… So, I decided to do two posts tonight (just because I wanted to share my lovely looking (&tasting) cupcakes… & because I have an already prepared photo for my travel memory!!! 😀

Fresh out of the oven…. Mmmmm…

Coffee frosting (my first try…) – I usually do normal white/butter icing!!!

A totally blurry photo – Please excuse it as it is difficult to eat & take a photo…

I forgot to mention that I baked these specially for He-who-thinks-he’s-boss… It is his favourite – & after a tough day, I decided to surprise him with this when he gets back from touch rugby in a little while… 😉

I hope he doesn’t mind me eating one without waiting for him… 😀 **

London, UK – South African Embassy

Oh no, I am not a very patriotic person (don’t get me wrong – I love South Africa, it is a super beautiful country), but…

I felt awfully proud when I noticed the beautiful South African Embassy standing tall and noticeable in (or is it on? or maybe next to? …) Trafalgar Square!!! 😀 I’ll call it my patriotic moment and make it this week’s Travel Lane memory!!! 🙂

“Uit die blou van Onse Hemel…” – December 2006 –

Good ol’ days!!!

Tonight.

Tonight I am missing H-O-M-E.

Everything about it…

Eating “mommy” food – being together as a family – sitting in the living room watching tv – warming up in front of the fireplace – listening to my brother play guitar – reading a book – doing my homework (?? 😉 )…

Tonight I am just missing being – no pretending!

Home is where the heart is…

Those were the good ‘ol days!!! And just for tonight – I’m wishing I could turn back time…

Tonight!! 🙂 **

A Wedding in the Cape

Beginning February we returned to the Cape for our friends’ wedding!!! It was a gorgeous event!!! I managed to capture a few memorable moments which I will share with you today!!! 😀

In the air… Loving the view – we landed in showers – Scary!!!

The evening before the wedding was to take place, they had organised a get together for all the friends and family!!! 🙂

London, UK – London Eye

Again I have to apologise for my lack of posts!!! 😦 I’ve been keeping busy (& tried to scale down on the time I spend on my computer!!! – a conscious effort!!! 😉 ) … Have been doing a few DIY’s around the house – which I will share with you soon!!! 😀 I’ve discovered Pinterest – which I am officially addicted to!!! 😀 But it has inspired me to get up & get going!!! Still lots more to do though… only the tippy-tip of the iceberg!!! – – – We have cancelled our satellite tv, exactly for this reason!!! Once I have found my new balance I will hopefully post often again!!! 🙂

But for today (late this week)… my Travel Lane memory!!! 🙂 Again one of those that I’ve seen a few times, but have not actually been on (next time for sure!!!)… The London Eye!!! This place such a big part in the touristy aspect of London, that I cannot believe that I’ve not been up there even once in the 3 times I’ve visited London!!! 😦 Love this structure though… I love the happy memories and gooey feelings these images brings forth when I see it!!! 😀 **

London Eye – December 2006

Schiermonnikoog, Netherlands – Typical houses

Travel Lane memory…. A fond one if I might add… Schiermonnikoog!!!! I remember how we walked the road of Schiermonnikoog… dreaming of what it would be like to live here!!! (Property prices was unbelievably high – or maby just in comparison to house prices in SA)…

These houses were small, quaint, inviting, colourful, old & left me wanting to live there (if only for a little while…). Without further ado I present to you a typical street view of the houses of Schiermonnikoog!!! 🙂

Schiermonnikoog, 2004

I think you understand what I’m saying after seeing this photo!!! 🙂 Who votes for a house on Schier?? 😉

Speaking of votes… If you haven’t voted for Duke yet, please please please click on his photo to steer you to the website…. I’m still lagging with a few hundred votes 😦 …

Click on the photo to follow the link (opens in new window!!!)

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend…. 🙂 I’ve some HUGE news to tell…. just waiting for it to be final…. (no use in counting my chickens before it’s hatched!!!) 😀 Soooooo, stay tuned….. 🙂 **
