Hot Date

~~~ It is a Thursday and I am off to get my pamper on with my GIRLFRIEND!!! Have a TODO list stuck on the fridge, just for the guys left behind, that way they don’t feel that I have forgotten about them. I have been so super busy between work and home, but I am extremely pleased to announce that there is nary a box in sight and I have 90% of the curtains up (much to the dissatisfaction of the local peepingtom). Babyshower went off pretty well for the almost here munchkin and now we count the days till shit gets real for everyone. I do not think that the impact what is about to happen has fully settled with them yet and am a little concerned about it. But that is why we are here, to glue back the wheels that fall off and laugh into our glasses of wine at the...

Access withdrawn…

Access withdrawn…

~~~ Time to put away the loaded gun.. It was with such sadness when we finally decided to take the loaded gun out of the cubbyhole of the car. We drove around with it for many years, the anger and sadness often tempting us to bring it out and use it in ways that would bring more madness to the world. But always held back. You all know how much I have spoken about the crazy ongoing challenges we faced. THE SHEER MADNESS!! We fought for years to force the Hairyknuckle to allow us access to the girls, but she always made excuses, even moved a few times with no forwarding address, basically ignored us in general. Her reasons were always wild and varied. But in all that time, she felt justified. Who knows what she actually told them!?!?! We do doubt the sincerity and...

~~~ Dun, dun dun dun… (the crowd goes wild) Hahaha!!! I SURVIVED THE CHILLIE CHOP AND COOK! Barely, it was touch and go..<– get it… Touch and Go? Ok, maybe just me then…hahahahahahaha!! I laughed and laughed and laughed.. because I cried and cried and cried. So besides that, my week has been quite pleasant. Hanging frames, wall art, photos and other artwork. Unpacking all the left over odds and ends, etc. Got office work caught up and just chilled. It feels like forever since I could say that “I just chilled” and I actually did just that. Sometimes we do not realise how hectic and stressed our environment truly is until we take a step away and gather some space and distance from everything. This move has truly been a...

Send the paramedics…

Send the paramedics…

~~~ With the way the last few days have been.. (Not sure if you know of the incident last week in the shower where I glued my hands to my ass…uhm.. maybe I will tell you about it another day. When it is funny to me as well) … someone may need to rescue me (again) The reason for the pending possible (yet highly probable) rescue mission is simply because I currently hold in my possession a GIANT bag of green chillies.. EXHIBIT A: And I am about to embark on cooking up some Mazavaroo!!! In case you are not aware, this is a chillie paste which is positively to die for!! … Which may or may not be my result if I am not careful. If no one hears from me in the next few days.. send rescue. I have probably gone and: a) rubbed my eyes b) scratched my...

Friendly Friday..

Friendly Friday..

~~~ Have you ever had just the kakkest day or a week from hell? We all have, and with the added pressures of adulting this is sadly more a regular occurrence as opposed to a rare event. This is not me today, but it could be me tomorrow… it could possibly be you right now. So as a social experiment,  I went about complimenting random people I interact with during the day. Taking the time at the checkout till – to tell the cashier how lovely her hair looks, expressing to the lady at Steers how her efficient and friendly service really made a positive difference in my life and even waving at the guy at the traffic STOP/GO with a smile. The general response to this has been amazing. I can see on their faces how just me being friendly and positive to them...

~~~ I had a desperate need for muffins today.. Chocolate muffins to be precise. But in order for me to make muffins, I had to face the horrible dirty oven that was left for me by the previous tenant. I have been putting it off till last. Using the stovetop and microwave for all my culinary needs this past week. Not engaging in any eye contact with the dirty beast at all. Alas, the time has come. The call for Muffins was real and hard. So I thought about the best possible way to tackle the situation. And in all my wisdom the best idea I could think of was to start off with a burn. Put all the elements on and once the grime is loose it should be easier to clean right? Wrong So very very wrong. It only took about 3 minutes for my plan of action to show me just how...

To Facelift or not to lift the face..

To Facelift or not to lift the face..

~~~ It is pretty but it is old.. Definitely feels like time to change this theme up. Give the old blog a revamp to go with my change of life and new happ(y)nings around me. But as all things, how to choose? Where do I begin? Has anyone got any suggestions for me with regards to a look and feel I should go for when choosing a new look? What should I change (structurally) and what should I retain? I am thinking pink (obvs) .. but also thinking turquoise or even blue? Perhaps I should just leave it be.. not mess with it even? Look forward to your input!! (As you can tell, I really need your help!) xoxo Share This:Share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on...
