Happy New Year

hee hee- well a “better late than never” huh? Wishing you a fantastic, brilliant, prosperous one! I know I’m ready to grab this one by the horns- lol.

I’m back home in Pretoria and have managed to settle in again- PHEW! Did you have a good Festive Season? Mine was a lot quieter in a lot of ways but more hectic in others-all good though but sure felt like I needed another holiday when I got home. BWHAHAHA.


We rented a house at the place where I met Wayne when I was 16!

Bushmans River. Our family’s have been going there for years. We haven’t managed to get there last 5 years due to Wayne having to work over most “summer holidays” and a lot of other PITA complications ;-)This year, with him being his own boss so to speak we managed to organise it! WOOT.

We also had the “old folks” with us the whole holiday. They had us in STITCHES most days. We bought each one a “pre-Christmas gift” of a rod and reel plus some fishing equipment- and boy did it come in handy as BOTH forgot theirs at home at their front doors and remembered when they were nearly here- BWHAHAHAHAHAHA.


Wayne’s Dad Vernon and Stepmom Zelda ;-)


Wayne taking my dad for ride in the boat on about the only day we had SUNSHINE! lol Yeah- it rained and rained and I’m still “lily white” to boot! blah! hahaha.


Nathan had his best friend Calvin staying with us too and the boys actually put up the Christmas tree ( amongst lots of fights and ball throwing- lol)


What do you do when it’s still raining?? – EAT!! lol. That pagoda we put up only lasted about 4 hours- the rain turned it into a storm and by the time it had finished that poor pagoda looked like it had played “twister”- lol


hee hee- and when the stomachs are full it’s time to play! My dad actually got the hang of the Xbox- we couldn’t believe it and had tons of laughter at him playing golf against Nathan. GO DAD! lol


And what did I do? - I played “make over” with Zelda and my dad’s friend Lizzy! BWHAHAHAHA- they were so chuffed and I had fun!


Wayne and I got to go do some “alone fishing” when the sun gave us a gap and I managed to catch a fish-----


BIGGER than his! lol, and we got DRENCHED about 20 minutes later! Oy- we did laugh as I warned him about the clouds coming in from the sea- NOOOO, that’s MIST he says- BWAHAHAHA- yeah right! My wet ass and head said otherwise ;-)


To hell with the rain- we went fishing off the rocks! lol. My dad actually caught a fish too!


And I LOVE this photo! The “three generations” of the Broedelet boys! How cool is that!


And just some of my Favourite photo’s taken of my boys ;-)


mmmmmmmmmmmmmm- yeah I’d say you are on holiday my boy- lol


Loved the light and Nathan was trying to catch “mullet” in that net for bait ;-)


AHHHH- a relaxed and happy man with his fish! lol.

There are tons more of course and will show those in a few more blog posts or you could be here for a while ;-)
