Holiday needed

All I want for Christmas is - nope not two front teeth- SLEEEEPP! lol. This weekend has been a FULL on the go one. I'm feeling rather exhausted this morning, one of those when even the simplest tasks seem toooo BIG- hahahaha. Loryn and Lizzel arrived early Friday afternoon ( Lizelle has been living in the USA for six years and this was her first trip home since)- so there was a lot of excitement here. Out Friday night till early hours Sat morning- caught a few hours sleep, and well lets just say I excused myself that afternoon and CRASHED on the bed till much later- lol.

Yesterday we had a (braai)BBQ for Lizzel in the hot summers sun! She is really going to look funny going home to snow with a really dark tan- hahahaha. Nathan thinks she's hilarious as she has a good American accent now when speaking English but reverts to Afrikaans (her home language)without thinking about it and sounds South African through and through-lol


Roche,Ant, Loryn, Graham and Lou


I sat with my camera shooting from the shade as they were sitting in the little martini seat telling *remember when* story's- I got some really good candid shots- and these just make me SMILE!


Doesn't this one make you grin??- lol, When we laugh we sure do it WELL- hahahahahaha


We even had our own WAITER in a towel- bwahahaha- sorry Graham couldn't resist! Hey Bunny Wunny- you want to come over??- BWAHAHAHA

The girls still went out to a deck party last night ( a cocktail party on a deck over looking the sea which starts early evening while the sun goes down)- Man, this old girl had no more energy so stayed at home with hubby enjoying a little *quiet time*- hee hee.

How was your weekend? And yup as you can see- we are all gearing up for summer holidays next week. Nathan has left this morning for his first hiking trip and will be back on Wednesday- but is off again on Friday to Bushman's River until Christmas eve. (always comes home for Christmas ;-). And Loucee we did have Boxing day (26th Dec) here but it's now called Family day.

And while I'm chatting about Loucee- hee hee, she's been busy with her craftiness again! WOOOHOOOO


How COOL are these? And you can grab em too- YAY!


Pop on over to Loucee's blog and grab the all ready done toppers for yourselves- print, cut and staple and you have a GREAT stocking filler or little gifts for the unexpected guest!

And talking about stocking fillers- WOOOOOT WOOOOT, I'm doing one of these for SURE! Beth has made us all a FREEBIE Luggage Tag Album too-


You can grab it here- Please remember to leave some love ;-).

I also have my October Colour Challenge Posting gift in the store if you didn't do my challenge and Liked the look of the kit- it's only 99c


5 papers @ 300ppi ,1 tattered paper PNG ,2 bow tied buttons ,1 cluster frame ,1 stapled ribbon ,1 curled ribbon ,1 cluster bow ,1 envelope tie.

Ok, I really have to sort out a mail box and get some things done as it really is silly season in this house- LOL. Until tomorrow- hugs and loves Kim

Hi Kim: We have a spare bed or two if you get here. It is only twenty hours or so by air. LOL

Poor little Emma is still so miserable that she isn't even counting the days until Pawpaw will be visiting her.

Here's a big Hug! Daddoo
