YAY- Nathan is coming home in an hours time! and I must admit- I can't WAIT- lol. So funny how as parents those first few days feel like bliss and so peaceful- arrrgh but after 2/3 days, we want the noise and *MOM* Back!!! I've missed him terribly! Oh Lordy, I think Wayne is going to worse than me when Nathan eventually decides he wants to spread his wings and leave home! The man was complaining the second night already that it was toooo quiet! SO YAY!!- can't wait to see his photo's and hear all the story's! He hasn't been able to phone as much as he would like as someone stood on his cell phone during the night on the 5th day they were away- LOL ( yeah another thing for mom to sort out when he gets here-LOL!)- so we have been getting sms messages just to tell us he is alive.
The party went off well on Saturday night- quieter than usual, (thank goodness actually-LOL) I think most were drinking the rugby LOSS sorrows away too! BOOO HOOO- we lost against New Zealand- but hey it's only the first game and our boys don't like loosing-LOL.
AWWW_ look what Silvia sent me this morning!! She's back and moved ( still unpacking boxes-LOL), but it sure was good to see this in my mail box
Look how Gorgeous her daughter looked for her prom! STUNNING! and Silvia did Belinda's hair herself!! Girl you have so much talent! Silvia used parts from my Story Book Romance add on and an Ordinary day add on too.
Have you seen the DSO blog at all??- There's a new little challenge up there called the DOSIES- (DO-sies), it's just some fun to have with us- and you can get a little gift each time to for playing along.
This weeks is ABOUT YOU and where you live. This is my little *heart in South Africa* and my home-
Yup this is my home Town- Port Elizabeth.
The lighthouse with the pyramid(hidden behind the palm) is one of our *heritage sites and was erected in memory of Sir Ruphane Donkin's wife Elizabeth. That is who our city is named after.
The main picture is of our beachfront taken at night(Kings Beach, Summerstrand). Nathan took the photo of the elephants and our Elephant park, and the top blue roofed structure is a resturant called 34 Degrees South ( edited because I'm blonde- HAHAHAHA), and it has a lighthouse lamp that shines from the turret every night- it's situated in a huge Casino complex with a huge lake in the middle. ( the red and white floating stage can be seen in front of it)- the small one in the middle is of our town hall.
It's a small neat, clean City, and I wouldn't move for the world! lol
So if you want to play with and show me where you live and what it looks like- check it out HERE.
