Friday~ wooohooo

Yipppeeee, it's FRIDAY! But um- what happened to the whole of this week??- LOL. Had such a nice evening yesterday- my friend Deon popped over and stayed for the usual *family braai* ( BBQ for those that don't understand my slang yet-LOL) and it's sort of bittersweet really. He's moving to Cape Town next weekend, and I know I should be happy for him as it's a better job, better money- but dammit, we've been friends for over 20 years and he's my *sanity*, so I'm being selfish at this stage and only thinking of how much I'm going to miss the bugger! (hee hee, love ya Deon!). I know he'll only be an hours flight away or 7 hours drive- but it feels like he's moving to the MOON! Funny how you take for granted the distance you have with your closest friends- all I have to do is SMS or phone and he's here in 5 minutes- BLAH, now I got to wait MONTHS! BUT- I'm also happy to support him with his *climb* ~ so feeling a little torn between both.  We're having a huge farewell bash next weekend and I think I should start preparing for it on Monday already-LOL.

Tomorrow Nathan's school has it's Fete or festival and it's RENOWNED for it's beer tent! So guess where we are all going tomorrow! And it's a big rugby semi-final tomorrow morning too- OH BOY- can you spell HEADACHE!! WAHAHAHAHAHA- We meet up with all the parents and old school friends and all our friends join in, and they have the rugby match on a BIG SCREEN- LOTS of noise, chatter, laughing and of course BEER!

For those who missed yesterday's post or don't know yet-


My Grab bag is here- and it's crammed with 6 brand new tools and goodies! Grab it now while it's all 79% off!! Only $8

And you want to see my Pixie hair- OMG- I'm still getting used to it- I think it's a little toooo short but after a week I'm sure I'll be happier- LOL


I used Jenni's (Chaos Lounges) awesome doodle frame from her Doodle Love kit! See I still have my reddy doodad wings though- WAHAHAHAHAH

Thank you for the strings Kim. Have a nice weekend!

Kim, I love the beady string things...they are so cute. And how do you manage that spiky "do" so well *L* I tried the spiky thing and it just never worked. It either made me look like Medusa or it was all flat. At one point I looked at myself and thought I looked like Wolverine from X-Men. *LMAO* But yours is so cute!
I used your template from yesterday and posted a LO if you want to check it outon my blog. Thanks again for it :)

well you get the idea!

Mrs. Miles said...

I'm really sorry your friend is leaving Kim, what a blow. It reminds us that everything in our life is 'Finite' and how we must treasure the moment. I know that bittersweet feeling (ohhh don't you love that word for a kit name? Bittersweet?) However, without the bitter would we ever know the sweet?

I'll pray for you as you make preparations. I hope you are able to give him a sendoff that speaks of his value in his life.

You look JUST LOVELY, exactly as I would have imagined you if I'd never seen a photo. You are very photogenic! Thanks for sharing.

Its a thrill to see my layout on your page!

OMG, Kim...your hair is fantastic! I just love it.

I'm so sorry to hear about Deon. Distance can be a real challenge. But thankfully, friendship really does know no bounds...and no miles. Thank God for technology!

Have a great weekend, and give Deon a wonderful send off next week. Make a memory!

DigiLover said...

sorry your friend Deon is moving away - it really sucks when that happens. None of my immediate family live in Sydney, my parents are 15 hour drive away & my brother & his family are 11 hours drive away - so our phone bills get quite big!!

love your new hairdo! looks fantastic. Wish I was game enough to get mine cut that short.

thank you for the gorgeous little beaded strings - they are just so cute!!!!
