This morning early, I made my way to a local fleamarket with two friends- one of whom spoilt us with gifts of jewellery- mine being this exquisite beaded choker! We had great fun, but by the time we left we were exhausted- the market is huge and very popular with tourists.
So, after the fleamarket adventure, Damien and I made our way to the bestest best friend’s eldest’s 9th birthday party- her boys also happen to be my godsons! Here’s Ryan in action with the cricket bat!This is his birthday cake- isn’t his mommy clever!?!
So, after the birthday party, I joined some family and friends at my cousin’s house for a pre-Christmas party… Ydnic had a brainwave of note a while back- and today we celebrated our First Annual Gift Exchange! We had an absolute jol bunnies! The idea was to buy one gift- for about 20 bux- and make it something a guy or a girl would appreciate, tricky, but fun to try and find… Ydnic and her hubby made a fantastic supper for all of us and she made a lekker punch, and we chatted and laughed the late afternoon away. Then we lined all the gifts up in a row on the lounge floor- picked a number out of a hat and working from left to right, picked the gift that corresponded with your number (if you got your gift, then you just swopped numbers with someone else). Then we all laughed our selves silly at the things we’d managed to find- everything from shot glasses to chocolate, drinking games to shower gel, candles to coffee mugs! Here are some pics of (almost) all of us with our pressies- some of our friends had already left by the time we finished…And this little beauty- is my Greebo’s sister- Fat Cat! I’ve posted pictures of her before because she’s beautiful, and I can’t get over the resemblance between them!
