* WARNING- GRAB COFFEEEEEE-lol*
OMG- I am just crossing all my fingers and toes that this thing has enough OOMPH to post this from Live writer today.
Internet connections still not right and I’ve been pulling my hair out here- but that’s the *samo samo news* at the moment. Will just have to hang in there for a while longer- BWHAHAHA.
Nathan has now left to go back home ( he starts University again on Monday) and this house is like a MORGUE at the moment. Can you say sob like a baby??- Yup that was this mother yesterday morning when he left. I looked like a gold fish from hell by last night and cried every time he let me know how far he was from home ( had a 12 hour drive home and this mom only breathed again when I got the *I’m HOME safe Mom*). Was far easier me leaving him at home and coming up here than him leaving me here - HAHAHA. OY, what am I going to do when he eventually *leaves* home for good- I have NO IDEA ;-)
We had a great time while he was here and he kept me hopping every single day.
We landed up at the Snake and Animal park the one day by just driving past and deciding to have a look around. OMG- well it was huge and we landed up watching a snake demonstration with popcorn and slush puppy’s as we did when he was small- It had every animal under the sun which actually shocked us ( sort of like a huge zoo).
Each Animal cage has a meter barrier gap and a bar safety fence between the animals cages so it stops anyone getting to close- with huge signs on the cages to not feed and BEWARE *dangerous*. RIGHT???- BWWWWWWWWWAHAHAH.
Yup Nathan had his brand new sunglasses on top of his head and we were watching the gorilla's when he sneezes and lands up flinging his glasses a few inches from the INSIDE cage mesh! We both look at each other with huge eyes and me giggling as the gorillas all come flying to the fence and start sticking their fingers through to try grab his glasses. He is in a flap and we look around quickly for a *personnel person* for help, but see none-
no problem to Nathan he vaults over the safety bar fence and leans forward to grab his glasses- his head a few centimetres from the gorillas fingers,which is now trying to grab his hair-lol. He turns and tries to jump over the safety rails sooooo quickly and in a panic that he can’t get over the first try - and the gorillas decide that the glasses were THEIRS and start banging on their chests and making one hell of a noise while pushing their mesh cage back and forth. lol. I have never seen Nathans eyes so big and he got over that fence the second time with about half a meter more to spare! BWWWWWWAHAHAHA- looked like a pole vaulter without his pole I tell you. His face was snow white and he walks away trying to pretend it wasn’t him that caused the huge ruckus to the other display saying * gee’s mom, did you see this lizard here* BWWWWWAHAHAHA- I pee’d myself laughing and so did he.
And then we went to Sun City this last weekend so the boys could play golf- all the photo’s I tried to get of Nathan turned out like THIS-lol
MOM- put the camara away!!
ARRGH- but I don’t give up-lol
GOTCHA!! ( and yeah, he’s going to kill me-lol)
We had a ground floor room that leads onto the gardens. We were warned about the MONKEYS and to not leave your doors open etc etc.
HAH, me laughing at Nathan came back to haunt ME-lol
They come close to you and play round near the rooms on the grass and in the trees, even if you are sitting outside but not close enough to really scare you- you just stamp your feet and they run away.
YEAH RIGHT - Until I met this mommy!
I was reading outside having coffee and lunch waiting for the boys to come back from golf and none of the monkeys were bugging me ( always around at meal times-lol).
I wasn’t paying attention as I was stuck in my book- until I heard this growl! YEAH I mean GROWL!
This little bugger came running with it’s teeth bared at me, pink mouth looking huge and SCARY, and I of course just stamp my feet and clap my hands thinking she is going to run- BWWWWWAHAHAHA
Guess who went running! Yeah you guessed it- ME!!
She just kept coming and jumped up on the table with her teeth bared bringing her head forward – I jumped out my chair and flung my book on the ground and RAN!
She just sat there and ate my toasted sandwich while I stood in the garden with the other little monkeys! lol!
This is the orange she grabbed off one of the other peoples plates too-lol
I think she’s learnt that by bearing her teeth and growling she gets food - even though it’s US usually that shout and bang to scare them- YUP, went the other way and I ran like hell-lol
YEAH YEAH- THANKS LADY- you got my lunch! lol
