With a Christmas angel and all- and it’s juuuuust in case I don’t get to check in again over the next two weeks (like I’m going to be able to resist going to an internet café if I can’t get my dongle-phone-thing to work)! Of course- I promise that if anything of major significance happens while I am on holiday I will find a way to let you know- otherwise, I’ll post again in two weeks time! On Christmas eve we will be going to my brother’s place- unless he’s too buggered from his trip to the game reserve, Christmas morning we’ll probably be at my mom’s and then we’re going to a nearby restaurant for an early lunch. We’ll probably take the boys swimming after that or something, maybe even totally flout convention and go and see a movie! Waaaahahahaha!
And next Wednesday is my 32nd birthday. I am going to be 32 years old. Hell I’m getting old! I’ll probably have visitors (hopefully all bearing gifts) through the day since I will actually be home through the day (this is also a first) so I best move my ass and tidy my house properly! Honestly- if I could find someone to do it for me, say- like today, I would do just that.
New years will be held at my folk’s place this year- we’ve had it there a few times- it just makes it a lot easier than trying to find babysitters for all the kids. My days of pub hopping on New Years Eve are over until Damien moves out of the house (actually I only did that once- but it was such fun- we started in a pub somewhere- visited two others, watched the sunrise from the top of a famous kopje (after forcing my then boyfriend’s Alfa Romeo Sprint to go bundu bashing up said kopje), then we had breakfast at a Bimbos and fell into bed at around 7am the next morning. And then my folks brought Damien home… that was not so much fun… he was about 5 years old and I was tired and hung over! I’ll never forget that night though- or Damien’s face as he stood next to my bed to wish me a Happy New Year and give me a love hello!
And don’t you just love this shoe- if I could walk in heels like this these are the shoes I would wear (Damien laughed his head off at my one attempt at stilettos in a shoe shop). I have not made a birthday list this year- like I did last year, which was exceptionally successful- but I did post a list of wants on this blog.
I think I have about finished my Christmas shopping, nearly, and I’m fast running out of time so I best check my list!
Have a good one all- drive safely- and thank you for making my blog so much more fun than I ever thought it would be! See you next year!
There Is Never An Excuse
One in three is not a statistic - one in three is a crying shame.
