AWWW- guys thanks sooo sooo much for all your messages and mails while I was away. Boy they meant the world! And let me tell you- being cut off with NO Internet or computer for over 10 days is HELL- ROTF, I felt like I was having the DT's!! ( for those who have ever tried to give up smoking-hee hee, sure you will understand THIS one!). We had NO connectivity and when it was there it was sooo weak it was like having dial up in REVERSE- WAHAHAHAHA. So I didn't bother toooo much about it- but I sure didn't like being cut off without my control- LOL!! But we made it back in one piece last night (well to be honest I think my ASS is still stuck in the passenger seat ;-) It was over 9hours in the car! But it was SO worth it! We had a BLAST!!! And yes I was a good girl- LOL. We spent a brilliant 10 days ( which got shifted up a bit due to some crises here at home- so we only left a few days later than planned.)
And of COURSE there are photo's- hee hee, and I'll be showing them to you during the week. But MAN I feel a little lost at the moment- trying to catch up on mails and news and trying to remember what I had done and hadn't done before I left is just plain SCARY- hahahahahaha.
And then this morning to top it off, I woke up after a GOOD nights sleep in my OWN bed ( always the nicest when you have been away) and put the kettle on for that MUCH NEEDED CAFFEINE and BAM!! No electricity- SHEEEE's WELCOME HOME! - so I finishing boiling the water in a POT on the gas stove ( which THANK GOODNESS we have as most use electricity here) and make my cup and stare at the PILES of laundry (all sorted mind you) along the kitchen wall waiting for the machine- YEAH RIGHT!!! WAHAHAHA.
Now schools go back today as well, but I let Nathan stay at home so he could sort his stuff out and just get a proper rest from the drive etc etc ( yeah I'm a real softy-LOL) .And we had bought a ripe pineapple to make smoothy's for breakfast this morning- UM, ok so NO electricity, we chop it all up, get some grapes and other fruit all ready- and 2hours later the lights come back on! Get the first load in and Nathan is *wiiiiirrrrriiiiingggggg* away with the blender- when I hear MOM!!!! Now I run as I think he has somehow hurt himself with that scream- OMG!! The BOTTOM of the smoothy maker came LOOSE and it spewed its guts ALL OVER Nathan, the floor, the Walls- EVERYWHERE.! hahahahahahaha.
Don't even ASK what it looked like- because I mentioned the word PUKE and Nathan went GREEN! hahahahaha. ME and my big mouth! It wasn't me, It wasn't me is all he was saying-LOL. And I was thinking OH GEE'S I want to go back on holiday! wahahahahahahaha. It took us almost 20 minutes to clean it all up- with Nathan going *gag gag gag* everytime he scooped off the floor- WAHAHAHAHAHA. What a way to start my first day at home- So we landed up having TOAST instead!
Ok I could yak and yak here for HOURS today- but I need to get more laundry done and need to get some FOOD as the house is TRUELY empty! And I don't think we will be adding a pineapple somehow- WAHAAHAHAHA.
I did some LO's too just before we left ( I did have a day or two that I could play)
These were done with Jenni's NEW KIT, Out of Africa! And it's GORGEEEOUUUUSSSS!!! I loved the rich colours and did a traditional one of my HOUSEKEEPER and some of the ritual that surrounds her dress,
And used this photo that I just loved by Jack Inas - the colours where just so AFRICA!
Want to see some of the holiday???- hahahaha,
These are just a few of the photo's of the rural homelands around the hotel we stayed in- these are traditional huts with little plantations of mielies(corn) and banana's growing in front of them. The houses are all painted in bright colours and it's awesome scenery to see on the drive. You can see the lady's selling their crops on the side of the roads making an income for themselves.
And just a few more photo's of why it's called the WILD COAST-
Amazing rich coastlines of forests and beaches-
Hee hee- guess who's been learning how to use her camera while she's away- ROTF!! I've had a blast playing with it-
I used Bunnys AMAZING phototrims (frames) for these and I know that there are some for CU use in Bunny's new Grab BAG- Check it out here ( I think it comes down today- so hurry!) It's fully revealed so you know what you are getting and I JUST LOVE those frames!!
No freebie today guys- still getting into the swing of things and just wanted to say a big HI and that I HAVE MISSED YOU ALL!!!!!! It's great to be back ;-)
Until tomorrow- big hugs and loves MEEEEEEEE. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
