Ladies & Gents…

At every event it is of utmost importance that everyone knows where the restrooms are…

This weekend at my mom’s SO’s birthday we made some signs to keep all in the know…



Stay tuned to see the very creative ladies toilet… 😉 **

My li’l brother is getting sooooooo big…

Today my wonderful brother turned 23!!! Wow, how time flies – it feels like yesterday that I turned 23 (oh wait… that was almost three years ago!!)…

Well, today’s post is for him!!! He is a wonderful young gentleman with the most potential in the world!! In a few years he is going to dominate the law front of South Africa!!! 🙂

Turning 25 the laid back way!!!

Today is my birthday…!!! 😀 (Love birthdays!!) … It’s a big one – – – twen2y fiv5 – – – This year I decided not to have a big party! This year I decided not to go out until the wee hours of the night! No, this year I decided I’m going to celebrate it with my family – – – laid back style!!! – – – I invited my family to enjoy a rustic champagne breakfast in the comfort of our garden!!! Loved every moment of it!!! Here is a few snippets of these people & my day!!!

Breakfast out in the open!!!

Champagne & a Fruit Salad starter 🙂 Nomnomnom!!!

Before I commence…. I have shared with you that I don’t have a small (very portable) digital camera anymore… I have found that I no longer capture the little get togethers, or quick dinners with friends at a restaurant or any random moments together!!! I also found that I no longer feature in photos and that there is a remarkable decrease in the amount of photographs that feature me & He-who-thinks-he’s-boss together 😦 !!! This is seriously just not right!!! I LOVE my dslr, but it is just not always practical to take it everywhere, or to capture moments that “just happen”… A photo taken with an arm in is not the greatest (but hey, it was better than having nothing!!) Which brings me to the reason of this ranting:

He-who-thinks-he’s-boss bought me a new little digital snapper – – – Canon IXUS 220 HS – – -!!! Handy for any (and every) occasion!!! 😀 Ain’t he the best ?? 🙂 ** So, of course the first photo taken today was…

...This one!!! (Yes... it looks funny!! But we BOTH are fully clothed!!! Promise!! 😀 )

To continue back to the family… 🙂 Unfortunately my dad could not make it 😦 – – – He is in Madagascar for a week – – – but we’ll get together when he returns!!! & my big little brother had to leave early because he is smack-bam in the middle of year-end exams!!!

3 generations!!! Granny, me & momsy!! 🙂

Lil' bro & me 🙂

What I adore about compact digital cameras is that you get gorgeous candid shots!!! Oh I am so looking forward to sharing more of these moments in my life with you!!!

Funny faces!!

It was scorching hot today with a very fleeting (and electric) storm!!! All was good!!! Here’s to being 25!!! Hopefully big things to come!!! – – – watch this space – – – 😀 **

My snapper has sooooo many functions its crazy!!! --- even this fish eye function --- photo of my very ugly chandelier!!! I predict fun fun fun... 🙂




What a weekend… He-who-thinks-he’s-boss turns 30!!

Whhhhow!!! This weekend was C.R.A.Z.Y !!! Got off work early(ish) on friday to prepare for the 30 something guests that we were expecting for he-who-thinks-he’s-boss’ 30th birthday party… total madness!!  – – – but great fun – – – only got into bed at about 4 AM…

Had a super busy weekend. Friday started off with he-who-thinks-he’s-boss’ phone starting to ring at 6 AM (which is way to early for such a ‘not-a-morning-person’ such as myself!) & as you already know only ended almost 24 hours later.

I was quite excited about the present I got he-who-thinks-he’s-boss (in his next life he is going to be a cowboy… loves western novels!). I ordered him the Sackett Series of Louis L’Amour – – – Leatherette collection!!! – – – and he LOVED it!!! #happyface 🙂


Saturday was car-hunting again (I’ve been stranded for over a month now – becoming quite frustrated with not having a car!) – – – no luck there… and then we watched the tri-nations rugby with some friends at a restaurant. Great fun, but after the previous evening in dire need of some sleep!

Sunday we had a very relaxing lunch at he-who-thinks-he’s-boss’ parents home! And after eating ourselves into a deep trance of utter laziness we were definitely not ready for the realization that the weekend was over and that we had to work again today… 😦


A snapshot of me & he-who-thinks-he's-boss (taken by friend)!

Needless to say… he-who-thinks-he’s-boss is still in a deep depression over turning 30 (does all men go through this ‘crisis’?)… hope he gets over it by the time he turns 40 🙂 oh just imagine!!
