Humpty Dumpty....

The weekend was good. The Husband and I decided to leave on Friday night for our planned visit to my folks in the “Dorpie”. We got caught in a nasty storm on the N4 highway though and eventually pulled over after the toll gate to take cover.

The petrol station eventually lost power and I desperately needed the bathroom so had to walk in the dark to the ladies, only to discover the entire shop and fast food outlet was flooded as well – fun times!

It was fantastic seeing my mom again as I hadn’t seen her since the wedding. We went shopping and had a nice braai that afternoon in celebration of her and my Step Dad’s birthday!

On Sunday, Husband and I headed home early, got Chinese take out and watched movies for the rest of the day in between planning the baby room.

I have cleaned Baby’s room out completely because we start painting this weekend. Mmmm so much still to do! Speaking of the weekend coming up, it’s going to be chaos. In between all the DIY, Husband’s dad and step mom are coming for lunch and then afterwards we are having his twin brothers and their girls over for a Halloween braai.

For shits and giggles, we all decided to dress up. Great for everyone else but that leaves me with few options – perhaps Humpty Dumpty? I really am big and there is no way I will be fitting into normal costumes….. going to be so funny!

Final thought for the day: A friend of mine sent me a petition to sign against the company I work for - ahem…. Words fail me…. Just saying!

Why is it that the people who least deserve hurt in life are the ones who continually get dished out pain?

A friend of mine lost her Fiancé on Tuesday in a freak accident. They were to be married in January.

She is being so strong but heartbroken and my heart aches for this girl who had finally forgiven herself and found happiness with a man she adored.

Taz, I am so very very sorry for your loss. You are the last person on the face of this earth that deserves such pain. Just know that GG is now your guardian angel and will be watching over you always.

I am thinking of you so much today.

God Bless

Off to Cape Town I Go

This has been a most horrid week. After all the drama the Mother In Law caused things have been a little touchy…

I am off to Cape Town for the weekend, flying out tomorrow morning. Going to be meeting up with a friend I last saw when I was 12 years old. She moved to Scotland with her family and we have kept in touch over the years to meet up for the first time now.

She is visiting her sister in the Cape and has no idea I am going to be there the weekend. Her sister and I engineered the whole surprise. Let’s hope she is happy :-)

I chopped off all my hair yesterday. It’s all short and wispy now. Well to me it's short considering I had long long hair. Still wondering whether it was a good idea and am convinced the novelty is going to wear off soon…Will stick a pic up next week!

Am so excited about my trip this weekend. Only ever been to Cape Town once and that was like 14 years ago for a holiday.

Have a good one all!


PS. Any suggestions regarding boys names are most welcome, seriously!

Go to hell Lady....

Husband and I had the strangest situation to deal with yesterday. For the last few weeks we have been playing around with names in anticipation of finding out what sex baby is. We had pretty much settled on both names for a boy and girl.

Since Husband has found out we are expecting a boy, he has been referring to the baby by name and whilst on the phone to his mother yesterday, was yakking about the “Ferrari Car” he wants to buy for Baby.

Husband’s mother went berserk about the name we had chosen saying that it meant dark in personality and that every time we call our son we are prophesying over him. Well, to say I was both flabbergasted and annoyed was an understatement.

Husband and I had checked the meaning of the name first obviously and the name only refers to “Dark haired OR Fair haired” No where did it say dark or evil or spawn of satan or whatever. As if that was not bad enough, she then said she will call her grandson by another name when she is around him and outright refuses to call him by his name.

I think this is bizarre. Last time I checked Husband and I were the parents to be and not his mother. In my opinion, one can name your child whatever name – the way you choose to raise your child and the values and morals you instill in your child will guide him whilst growing up.

This whole situation does not sit well with me and is hurting Husband.

Watch this space…..

Weak Moments!

What a chaotic few days. We found out yesterday that Husband and I are expecting a little boy. He is very excited and already checking price lists for motorbikes and golf clubs…

We never got to Sexpo which I was rather miffed out about. Too many things happened Friday afternoon and we ended up visiting friends that are going through a really tough time at the moment.

On Sunday, we joined the Best Friend and BF’s Wife for a day out in Harties. Ate the most awesome Chinese and then we paid the snake park a visit which had me in shivers most of the tour. Did make friends with a porcupine though.

I am not wearing my wedding ring today. It was an accident. I never take it off accept when putting cream on my hands and this morning Husband distracted me and I ended up leaving it on the bedside table. Feeling very naked without it to be honest.

The bitch of the office moves today!!! WHOOO HOOOO!

Going to be a good day!

I threw a tantrum of note this morning. Could not find any clothes that fit me and then Hottie (erm.. Husband) says “You have mommy boobs now” Mommy Boobs? Irritated I asked: What the hell are Mommy Boobs? Cautiously he says“ Well your boobies are meant for baby now, that’s all” Not really sure how I feel about that at this stage….

Now that the wedding is over, I am toying with the idea of chopping off my locks. Have had long hair for ages and think perhaps a change will do me the world of good? Mmmmm what to do?

Anyhoo, Husband and I are off to Sexpo tonight! Should make for an interesting evening. Tomorrow we are sorting out the garden as the new house has been neglected with all the chaos of the wedding! Hoping to get some rest too, haven’t been sleeping well at all.

It’s my Brother’s Birthday tomorrow. He would have been 26 years old.

Happy Birthday Boet! Hope "Becks" non-alcoholic beer counts ..... :-)

I am still alive!!!

Where to begin? 2 months ago I was engaged, working on a project for a deranged boss and convinced I was losing my mind.

Now I am married, back from a 2 week honeymoon and 17 weeks preggers.
Oh and my project is finished AND I have a fabulous new boss!! Yayness all around!

I am desperately trying to catch up on all my favourite blogs so please excuse me if I leave comments on posts from a month ago – I am not backward just slightly in the dark… hee hee

It would be impossible to write about everything that has happened in the last 2 months however, will be mentioning the highlights as I think of them :-)

Right, I am off to get myself some decaff and start reading – so much of the excitement :-)

Whoop whoop
I am back
