ARRGH- bring back summer-lol, Winter is slowly showing her stuff and not sure I like it so soon. It's raining and chilly and one of those days that the couch and a good DVD looks really inviting! hahaha. Also because I feel like a tired, slow old woman today. BOy, it's been a *long and full* weekend.
Friday afternoon we joined Deon, Dad, Ant and some other friends at our favourite *watering hole* for a pub lunch and at 5pm we got a phone call from Deon's brother to say that we needn't hurry home, there was NO electricity in our area and he was on his way to join us! OOOOOI- lol, Lunch landed up lasting till 8.30pm! With still no electricity in our area due to someone trying to steal the cables, everyone followed us to our house. (Company in the dark is much more fun than sitting in the dark on your own right??) Man, I have realised that Unplanned get togethers are REALLY bad for ones head!
We lit all the candles I had, and Wayne opened a bottle of pure Russian Vodka that was given to him as a gift 3 months ago- Can I just say DANGEROOS!! This bottle had been in the freezer for the whole three months and it didn't even have an *icicle* in it! lol. This stuff is smooth- but has a kick like a HORSE- not a mule! Tequila is like JUICE compared to this stuff! I cried with laughter as we tried to play 30 seconds ( a board game) with *forfeits* being a shot of Vodka!. It took most of us 30 seconds just to make out the first clue let alone try and guess as many answers as possible in 30 secs! HAHAHAHA.
Sat was spent trying to keep that *little man from playing those drums in my head* and cleaning up wax all over the house from me blowing out the candles tooo hard ( yeah, well, I didn't think I was at the time- HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH)
AAAHHHH- But yesterday was a very special day,
Nathan is now OFFICIALLY the ONLY responsible adult in this house- Bwahahahahaha, ( He say's so I tell you-lol)
Standing with his Dad and his *second* Dad Deon.
and of course he is getting a poke in the ribs from Dad. These boy's can't be serious in a photo!
You can see where they get it from - just look at his *Grand fathers*
My Dad's hair is all fly away and we were teasing him that he looked like an Advert for the *wool board*- BWAHHAHA.
NEARLY got a serious one- but Yup- Wayne's dad just couldn't hold himself back- he had to blow in Nathan's ear and my Dad seriously needs some hair gel- LOL
NO mistaking this lot! WOW - like Grandfather, like Grandson!
And then my battery died! What a dork I know! At least I got some for Nathans *keepsakes* ;-)
And I want to send a dear scrapping friend RUTH a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY wish for today too! Ruth I hope you have a wonderful day my friend.
And we have a gift from RUTH!
How Awesome is this QP!! She made it using my Colour Challenge posting gift- I love it, and you can pick it up here on Ruths blog today. Please leave her a little Bday wish as a thank you ;-)
Phew- and tonight we are going to the IPL pro 20 cricket match being played here in PE. OUCH! At this stage I think I'd like it to carry on raining- at least then I would have an excuse to sit my ass at home! lol
