I’m Still Here!!!

I’m just hella busy… and yet it feels like I’ve done nothing… very strange.

Thank you all for the fabulously wonderful comments on my last post. It was password protected initially, but I figured since there are now very few people who do NOT know we were trying to get pregnant the password was moot.

This weekend past was a feast of friendship and I had a ball! On Saturday morning we celebrated ExMi’s kid’s 2nd birthday with a party at his grandparent’s place and it was very cool to see good friends again. Tam and the BF, Rebecca with her Dave and Jackson (sorry I left you off here initially my friend), Totallycooked and her other half, Meea and her kidlets, Sleepy Jane, Louisa, Boobah’s mom and her little boy, Laura & Plane Boy, Pink Hair Girl and her kidlets, Snowgoose and her Shaun… I love get togethers like that. I baked dinosaur cupcakes for the kid, and the kidlets seemed to love them though I wasn’t mad about how they turned out! And you shoulda see MamaMeea’s cake!

On Saturday afternoon I was dropped off at Third Thursday’s “An Afternoon With Debra Patta” fundraiser and met up with Samantha Perry. Kerry Haggard was one of the organisers and she made sure I would be seated with Samantha so I wouldn’t be on my own with strangers. It was a very interesting afternoon with prizes and goodie-bags… and we all know how I love goodie-bags! While I was there, my boys took themselves shopping as my knucklehead needed clothes- and they came home with a steeringwheel cover I’ve been eyeing! They know me too well…

I then went home and slept. All afternoon and all night. Ridiculous innit!

Sunday morning we were all up early, and when Sweets and her boys arrived we took ourselves off to one of Jenty’s favourite locations for a family photoshoot! We had an absolute BLAST!!! I can barely wait to see the photographs!!

After the very early photoshoot 🙂 we took ourselves off in search of breakfast and ended up at the Rhino and Lion Park! We had a very cool brunch, and then watched the snake show, and a cheetah named Eddie attempting to display his running abilities (it was hot and he just wanted to head for the shade), wandered through the nursery where the boys played with some serval cubs and got stalked by a marabou stork! We did a bit of a tour of the park before making our way home. The boys all swam whilst Sweets and I had a cup of coffee, and when they left I went to bed.

I slept till Monday morning! Its insane!

It was a wonderful weekend indeed.
