My second post for the night & my Travel Lane memory for the week!!! 😀
In December 2005, me & a few friends did a bit of holiday work on a farm in the Stratford-on-Avon region… Yes, it was beautiful… It was super hard work… – – – Not work that I’ll be doing if it wasn’t for the fact that we were in England – – – I’ll never do it here in South Africa!!! 😉
Our job was to wake up super early (in the freaken freezing cold)… catch duck & turkeys… put them in a dark room… ready to start the process of “preparing” them for christmas dinner!!!! 😉
Plucking the feathers… taking out the intestines… weighing… packaging… etc. etc!!! 😀 How on earth was I able to do it?? – Today I don’t know 😀 – But it was fun & a beautiful place… Maybe you know the place… Lower Clopton Farm Shop??? Yes, we lived there for a few weeks… maybe you ate one of my prepared turkey’s/ducks!!! 😀 **
Hi there everyone!! I hope you had a terrific weekend!!! We were soooooo busy – – – I must apologise for the decrease in posts the last while!! It seems that for the last while I haven’t gotten quite enough time to go out & get decent shots!! It is not going to change for quite some time… Work is crazy at the moment (people pushing for the last month of work before shut-down)!!! I can tell you…. It’s NOT fun!!! But…
Every Cloud has a Silver Lining!!! 🙂In just over a month I’ll be on vacation for two weeks!!! Can’t wait!!! 😀 **
On another note… He-who-thinks-he’s-boss have always had this dream to go and live abroad for a few years!! We went to the Opportunities Expo this weekend, it was companies from Australia, New Zealand & Canada promoting their companies here in South Africa. We decided to go, because we’ve been talking about Canada for a while now (rather he’s been talking about it – I’m not keen on change!!)… but he had an interview on Sunday with a company from Canada…. It’s scary and exciting!!! Although it still means nothing (sounds like this is quite a lengthy process), it seems quite real!!! – – – I mean, if we don’t do it soon, we’ll probably NEVER do it – – –
We are looking at Edmonton or Ottowa!!! Have you ever relocated? What was your experience? Ever been to Canada? Opinions?
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!!
I should be working…. But instead I am looking at pictures of faraway places…. wishing I could be there — and hoping that no-one would sneak up behind me and see that instead of designing & detailing my projects, I’m browsing the internet… Oops!!! 😉
Came across this beautiful picture (on StumbleUpon). It is a big dream of me to visit the Greek Islands – – – I plan to get married there someday!!! (… someday!!!) But isn’t this picture just indescribably dreamy?
