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... 🙂

 

 

 

It’s just one of Those days…

I’m in such a funny mood… Not at all in the mood for being any company… I just want a little “me”-time!!!! Today was probably just a tad too long and too busy – – – hence the mood!!! Just posting a few polaroids of me & He-who-thinks-he’s-boss… I just love having these memories… Since not having a small digital camera anymore (RIP my little snapper), I have a noticeable lack in little forgettable moments!!! 🙂 **

Tomorrow will be a better day!!! Have a great evening!! 😀 **

 

 

 

Rugby World Cup!!!

So, today marks a highly anticipated day throughout South Africa – – – & I believe in a lot of other countries as well!!!! Today was the kick-off of the Rugby World Cup 2011. Myself not being at all bothered about the sport makes me socially inapt (at least in this country!!!). 🙂 When I logged onto facebook today, my whole screen exploded with images of the south african flag, or a springbok, or both!!!! Crazy…. 😉

I decided that today’s post – – – to keep in the spirit of the event – – – should be at least related to the big RWC!!!!

I took this pic a few years back with my normal samsung digital camera at a game between the Springboks and Ireland/Wales (or someone of sorts… oops!!!)

In the most excited tone that I could muster….: “Gooooooooo bokke!!!!!!” 😉
