Yup it's gonna rain-lol

I know, I know - it's a Sunday and here I am posting on my blog right??. -RAIN??_ Yeah, it is raining here actually- lol. Go figure! hahahaha

It's been a CRAZY week since Tuesday as Nathan finished school on Wednesday for his holidays and I had to fetch him at 10am, then it was take all the kids fishing-OY, now let me tell you this takes patience! Each one wants different things or needs different bait- so you ride around for an hour before you even get to their favourite fishing spot- only to find that the wind is blowing a little tooo much for their liking- so it's off to find another one- hahahahahaha. Most of my day was spent in the car looking for fishing spots and bait! lol

Thursday started off a LONG weekend here in South Africa- being our Heritage Day - or National BRAAI DAY as we know it.


( We braai ALL the time, to celebrate, to just socialise, to mourn, actually at any excuse just to light the fire ;-)

Braai Day is a celebration of our great country and its unique national pastime. It aims to unite all South Africans on 24 September by encouraging them to partake in a fun and tangible activity shared by all demographic groups, religious denominations and body types.

So of COURSE that is what we did- lol

1The fire that is lit- no matter WHAT the weather-lol3

Everyone sits around it socializing, waiting for the fire to die down so we can cook on it- but most times more wood is thrown on- lol.  Of course a *social* braai isn't without a few *shooters and drinks*-  lol . Here Deon decided to be a little patriotic and burst into our Anthem! hahahaha


*Pink drinks* Dave ( a South African advert joke ;-P)


The *girls*


EVENTUALLY, someone (Gary) decides it's time to put some solid food in our stomachs and took charge of the tongs-lol


Chicken kebabs and wings on sticks- which usually get eaten straight off the fire before they even reach the table-lol


Lots of Yakking and laughing and more pink drinks after everyone has eaten ;-)


TOOO MANY pink drinks- BWWWWAHAHAHA, Ant fell on her *ass* trying to catch Wayne- lol

Friday was a *sleep in* morning as you can see by the pictures above and Friday afternoon was Nathan's best friends ( my *second* son) 18th Birthday party. He wanted his friends and his favourite parents at the pub for his first official *legal drink*- lol. We all had a ball, and I learnt that Nathan takes after his mom TOO! hahahahaha- One beer and he was talking the hind ass off a donkey! lol So he isn't ALL WAYNE after all ;-P

Okies- enough yakking and a little news on the business front-lol

Ha, I KNOW Braai now *wink* I might have to just go have me one of them now when we get to camp next - possibly the end of this week for a night! If not, for sure the next.

The wings on sticks looks like a fab way to do things and I'd be the same not waiting to make it to the plate.

One thing I admire bout you Kim (among the vast many things) - you always take LOTS of pics and capture the fun. Thx for letting us have fun with you!

Can we have a pic of the mashed and gr too?
