EEEK Wednesday already

Youch, this week is flying by! I swear today was Tuesday - BWHAHAHA.

Well my Daddy left on Monday to spend some time with my dear sister Gaye ( GS creations) So Monday was pack suitcases, and teach Dad how to use my laptop correctly. lol. ( i had always had it on for him and always shut it down- uhum, Daddy had to go through all those steps too)

Yeah, I gave it to him as he was having sooo much fun playing games and it was really cute to see. Hope he doesn’t drive sis tooo mad with too many questions- hahahah.

Yesterday we sort of “hit a flat panic” here as my dad receives a state pension and after a year they ask you to prove that you are still alive! SERIOUSLY! lol.

He has till the end of May to do so but the paper work was in Port Elizabeth. He asked his friend Wayne to post it up here so we could do all the necessary red tape stuff,  and well lets just say our postal service lived up to it’s reputation as it NEVER arrived! So yesterday Gaye and I sat on the phone most of the day ( her from her side and me from here) BOTH being shunted from one government department to another! Can you say FRUSTRATION! Holey crap, I have never felt so irritated in many a year! Gaye was having the same problem.

By yesterday afternoon we had both phoned sooo many numbers, left so many messages I couldn’t remember what was who or what! lol. The only thing we could think of to rectify the situation was to change Dad’s air flight ticket to go home earlier so he could just go in himself where he collects it every month!

But BEN ( Gaye’s hubby) is a hero today- he drove to the nearest town with my Dad and found the form!!! The one the whole of SASSA (South African Social Services Dept) said they wouldn’t, couldn’t fax or mail us! WOOHOOOOOOOOOO! Go BEN! lol.

So All’s well and Dad can stay his full holiday now. PHEW! lol

I have a few more photo’s to show ya-


My “Boys”- ahhhhhhh, can’t WAIT to see them in June again!


Pieter and of course me who looks like I have something stuck up where it shouldn’t be- BWHAHAHAHA.


AHHH- my dear little friend Anty- man you can see how tiny she is as I am a short gat as it is! lol


OOOOOOH and did you Nathan can COOK! ??? He surprised us the one night by cooking his “catch of the day” for supper- Better than any fish I have tasted in YEARS!

He cooked the fish with herbs, garlic and lemon butter on the grill and it was DIVINE!!


And the prawns done the same on the coals! They had the most gorgeous smokey flavour too! Yum, I’m making myself hungry now! lol

He just doesn’t know it yet but he has set a precedent now! BWHAHAHA- he’s going to cook more often when I’m home for SURE- hahaha.

OOOOH and I slipped up on my CT duty’s! MY BAD, but better late than never huh?-
