New Cu Pats and TGIF

OOOH goodness, where the hell did the last few days go? ..mmmmmmm, I know! Melting up in the heat we have had-lol. I still don't have my normal internet connections either- sheee's it's been gone the whole month and this poor portable is "smoking" already- ;-P.

But I'm seriously a "chuffed" mom at the moment as Nathan has already got a promotion TWICE in the last month.. he only started working in Jan as an "apprentice" so I'm really thrilled. He was put in charge of one project at the beginning of February.. and became a supervisor-lol. Well he seems to have handled it so well they have now asked him to do 4 projects as well as all the "budgets" for each one and is now a Site supervisor. WOOT!! go my boy. ;-)

We also got to visit Charmaine and Donald last weekend- wheeeeee, we made a "full weekend" of it and slept over. ( hahaha, well actually you have no choice when visiting Charmaine).

After a few drinks under the belt, I learnt I could still do "Cartwheels, the splits and some backward rolls"... BWHAHAHAHA, yeah not as elegantly as I used to be able to do, but uhummmmmmmmm-lol. The kids were all running around the garden doing gymnastics while we were chatting around the fire having our usual shooters and drinks, and of course good ol' me pipes up - "I remember being able to do that.. wonder if I still can?" lol

Wayne's eyes just about bugged right out his head and says ... NOOOOO Kimmmmm!! HA, don't say nooooo Kim because I was up like a shot and Charmaine was crying with laughter at poor Wayne.

Well I shocked the kids who all said.. shooo maar jy is so oud tannie! ( translated.. shooo, but you are so old Aunty) BWWWWWWAHAHAHA. Hey I had fun. LOL

Boys, love and Sale

WHEEE- it's Friday and the build up to the "lurrrvvee Day" next week. Well ok, we don't do much on Valentines day here (never have since we were dating) but I do get a card from Hubby every year(and a weekend away now and again- lol). Any plans on your side??

To Celebrate Valentines I'm having a 40% off SALE at SugarHill Co: SugarHillco :: KimB .

Starts today 10th Feb and ends Wednesday 15th Feb"
* grab coffee- it's Friday posting- lol*
At the beginning of this year my dear CT requested more "boy" styled kits as we all have sons and not many kits to scrap them with... We have the baby kit done  (Precious Beginnings (boy) Kit) and I know that I want to finish an Album for Nathan for his 21st with a "general" theme and colour tones running through it ;-)
After hearing some really sad news last weekend it got me to thinking of MY BOY... and just how much he is MY HEART and MY STAR.. how I would be lost without him, how much I miss him and how everyday he can lift me up with his little messages of "hi mom, what ya doing?" Hey ol bag.. luv ya! lol

This week he seriously couldn't have picked a better time to have me crying with laughter..

He excitedly sent me a message on BBM that he was going to be playing cricket for the company he now works for this Sunday against our local Traffic Dept! He hasn't played cricket since school days when he played for TWO teams.. He played for the 1st team as their opening batsmen and was the 2nd Team Captain too-lol . So he was a little worried he wouldn't be up to PAR...

The conversation went on about "easy as riding a bicycle" to having a quick pre-game so his muscles could remember what to do..... To me REMINDING him not to forget his "ball box" (which covers his tender area's-lol) and his Helmet.
After remembering the disaster I had of having to go buy a BIGGER box for him after getting the "junior one" when he was still in Junior school and it not fitting- uhum>>>> lol. I sent him a message saying.. Well maybe you need a "bigger box" now ? BWHAHAHA

The reply seriously came back so quick that I CRIED with laughter at it being sooo "BOY"- lol

"Mom, always been this big.. blessed at a young age.. the team in Junior School thought my "box" WAS my Helmet"!!!
BWWWWWWWWWWWWAHAHAHAHAHAHA- yup, my boy is a man for sure and he is going to kill me ;-P

So with that in mind.. this is how my "Valentines" kit came about for this year-

20% off this weekend only:

More Snapshots

Gosh are the weeks just flying by for you too? Yikes, it's like this year is on a speed train and there are no brakes! hahaha.

AHHH it was good having the boys home this weekend for  a change.. they really have been burning the candle at both ends and it was good to see them relaxing and having some fun. We went out Friday night and Deon landed up sitting in the line for IDOLS South Africa overnight- BWHAHAHAHA. He was not too impressed about the no sleeping part, but as he was asked to "bodyguard" and keep two girls company while they waited to be seen, he didn't moan tooooo much- BWHAHAHA. They didn't make the selection to see the judges unfortunately but seems they had a blast in the crowds.

I have some more stunning Layouts that I have to show off with Snapshots of the Heart collab (with Jennifer Labre Designs.)


There were seriously too many to do in my one post on Friday - so here is some more stunning inspiration for you and a FREEBIE printable too.

OMG, I had Deon in my PC on Wednesday night trying to see if it's my network card that might be giving me problems with my connections... mmmm, lets just say this girl nearly pooped her brooks when my PC wouldn't work properly after he had been inside the poor thing.. But hat's off to Dee ( well ok he was shit scared NOT TOO- BWHAHAH) he sat up till the early hours and got my PC back to what it was.. but still no solid connections. lol. Hopefully this weekend they can play.. but my "baby" was needed this week.... WHEEEEEEE, I have a brand new kit out today!
