The dry season (TMI) - Not for sensitive readers

A few weeks ago, Hottie and I decided to give the hectic baby making schedule a break and take some pressure off the two of us. It also made sense to postpone a month or so because we have pretty much set the wedding date – 29 August ……. This year!

Now I realise this post is possibly sharing way too much information but I have no other outlet so if you are in any way going to be either offended or put off reading this (guys, take note) then stop reading – NOW! That includes pissing yourself laughing at my expense…. Just saying.

Right…. Hottie and I have not had sex in over 3 weeks. THREE!!! Granted due to my monthly cycle the first week and having other complications the second week, it made life a little difficult but this week we had ample opportunity and nothing happened.

The confession I need to make is as follows: This is mostly my fault. For some or other reason I have just been iffy in that department lately. It’s not that I don’t enjoy it, just haven’t been in the mood – at all!

So, last night I decided that I was in the mood and well…. I was rejected. Needless to say I am not handling this well at all. I just don’t understand really. 2 hours prior to my little “I am in the mood” display, Hottie was kinda hinting about it too and was playful to say the least….

Two hours later he blatantly turns me down, leaving me standing there like a complete imbecile, lacy undies and all (okay okay so I was trying to be cute and sexy like).

So…. I am a bit miffed out at this stage and decided to google libido boosters where I came across – Horny Goat Weed. My first thought was of a randy goat running around trying to shag anything that moves – disturbing, seriously. Not sure I want to take something with that picture in my mind.

I hope this is just a phase of our relationship because I have honestly never been through anything like this before. I am scared actually.

Right, now that I have subjected you all to major over share, off to shop I go. For clothes.... no really.....

Happy weekend everyone!

Buy a map book next time....

I am back. I probably should give a reason as to why I have been away for a while but I can’t.

So where to begin! The engagement party turned out nicely. My future skoonma went a bit berserk with flowers and even made us an unbelievably yummy cake. The day was a special one and everyone who said they would attend were there.

Well……Everyone except my mom and step dad were there. My dad had a spare GPS which he loaned to them and “Gabby” garmin proceeded to take them on a sightseeing trip around a place called Bronkhorstspruit.

Apparently there seems to be “mine is bigger than yours” syndrome between my dad and step dad and hence my poephol of a step father didn’t want to phone anyone to find out if they were on the right track.

When I eventually got hold of them on the phone I was told they were going home as the day was over and they had wasted enough petrol (It was 11h30 in the morning). To say I was hurt was an understatement and I haven’t spoken to my mom since. The cherry on the cake was when my step dad left a disgusting message on my phone. I was not impressed.

In other news, I eventually bought the Sony camera and must say I am chuft with my decision. Intend to put it to good use when we go to Magalies for the Easter weekend!

I also have some serious shopping to catch up on. We received so many gift vouchers at the party on Saturday that can be put to good use.

The taxi saga yesterday left a very bitter taste in my mouth too. Thanks to those stupid shits, my domestic executive could not get to work and hence I have a mountain of washing at home. I friggin hate doing washing… seriously!

Popped round to visit my friend LA last night. Had a fat chat over pizza and wine. We also discussed post baby sex which had me gulping down the wine a little faster than I should of. Nasty stuff (post baby sex not the wine, the wine was quite good actually). She also told me that apparently the 'in' thing these days it to get your lady bits “revamped” via surgery after you have had your last child…**shudder and cross legs** erm…… no.

Right then, let me call the parentals and be the adult for a change….

Help ..... please

I am trying to buy a new camera and stuck between two different ones. Every time I make my mind up I change it again!

This is now driving me to the point of desperation and hence I am appealing to the blogger community for help.

Which is the better camera?

The Sony DSC H50 (15 x Optical Zoom)


The Panasonic DMC-FZ50

For the sake of my sanity, comments are more than welcome....

I made it!

I lived through the night. Turned out to be a fun filled evening after all, though only got around 3 hours sleep. I look like shit and the special eye cream I bought for dark circles, guess what? It doesn’t work when you want it to…just saying.

My dad calls me this morning in hysterics about an email he received and forwarded to me.

Tay: Hello, Tay speaking
Dad: Hi Lu (My nickname) whaaa haaa haaa
Tay: **silence
Dad: I just sent you an email, read it now, it’s classic, READ IT!
Tay: Erm… dad I am kinda in the middle of something right now, will open it as soon as I get a chance.
Dad: NOOOOO Tay, now! Whaaa haaa haa
Tay: **Mutters under breath** This had better be good. “Okay one sec”
Dad: Pay special attention to the subject line, okay gotta go bye!
Tay: *speaks to dead phone line unless there is a Telkom lurker tapping the phone for kicks. “ Hi Mr Telkom Man, hope you are having a good day”

Email as follows:
If she hasn’t yet, she will soon!

Ah, too much of humour from the parental.

Let the games begin - another rant

I think I am suffering from some sort of disorder. This week is turning out to be a week from hell and I am this close *shows tiny weeny space with fingers* from throwing a tantrum.

Besides Hottie wanting to invite an ex with the a name similar to that of a cheap car, making invitations for the engagement party and working my poephol off, I now have people staying over tonight.

Hottie’s best friend thought it would be a fantastic idea to fumigate the house today with a 9 week old baby in the house. Best friend’s wife is hysterical and called me now asking to stay over.

So, I have her, a seven year old and a nine week old baby in my 2 bed roomed house tonight – the whoooooooole night. On a weekend, sure no problem. This now means that I have to rush home after work and sort out my “spare room”.

Also, Hottie’s dad decided to be a dick and decline the invitation to the engagement party because he refuses to be in his ex wife’s house and Hottie should consider the family politics and be sensitive to such situations.

Dude…….. you remarried like 15 years ago – GET THE FUCK OVER IT!!!!!!!
I think it is incredibly selfish that he won’t put one day aside for a special occasion in his son’s life – he sucks balls!

Right, tantrum over.

What kak

Been a hectic day and I feel like shit. Hottie and I argued most of the weekend, the medication I am on is making me ill and in conclusion I cannot contribute any post of value today…

Apologies…. Really.


PS. Is it weird that Hottie wants to invite an ex-girlfriend to our engagement party? WTF??? I don’t care if she has a boyfriend. It’s weird.

Just Nonsense

Yay, weekend has finally arrived! Although it was a short week for me, I am so relieved to see the end of it!

My mom and I had a disagreement last night of epic proportions. Although it wasn’t about anything specific, I am really concerned about her and she interprets my concern as interfering.

Turns out I was right after all. My step dad has been hiding stuff from her like say um… oh… well…. a balance of R25 000 on his credit card. Not cool. They have been fighting ever since. A mother can't hide stuff like that from her daughter.... I have telepathy or super powers or whatever.

My mom and I have a joint doctors appointment today with some specialist dude. I am pretty much just going to give her moral support and beat my step dad with a stick… kidding.

They should be arriving in Pretoria within 30 minutes. Am positive by that time my mom will be a nervous wreck (she is terrified of traffic in the city) and my step dad will be irritated beyond comprehension with all her backseat driving. Good times.

My weekend is going to consist of some quality time with Hottie, rugby and making engagement party invitations.

Have a good one all!

Baa Baa Black Sheep....

I am in the process of trying to arrange an engagement party by orders of the *Skoon-Ma. It has already been decided that Harties will be the venue seeing as the entertainment area alone is spectacular and very spacious! I am fine with that, in fact, I love the idea.

What I am having serious misgivings about is a spitbraai (no, not a braai onto which people spit – oh yuck). Don’t get me wrong I love a normal braai with charcoal and stuff. Not as enthused about a whole sheep going round and round in a machine that makes funny noises.

I have made it quite clear that I will in no way be a part of this process, nor will I be in the vicinity of the machine. Seriously getting cranky in my old age it appears. Don’t know what’s wrong with me, just put off by the idea.

The date is set for 21 March, if I live till then.


*Skoonma = Hottie's mother

Back to Reality

Greetings all, good to be back! Was completely annoyed when I tried to post from our lodge in Pennington and there was no getting onto the web for longer than 2 minutes!

Soooo, I am engaged. I will not bore you to tears with the details of our holiday, accept that it was relaxing, awesome and memorable! What I will share with you is the details of the engagement!

Our first day there we spent the entire afternoon on the beach and lounged about in the pool. Eventually we walked back to our room where Hottie had planned a surprise. On our private balcony stood a table with candles and a dinner setting for two – very romantic.

Had a shower whilst checking out the ocean from the gigantic window and made myself all pretty. The owner of the lodge brought our meal up to our room, together with a nice bottle of bubbly, heaven! Ate the most amazing meal, fillet with the yummiest veggies I have ever tasted!

Hottie then mentioned dessert which I didn’t think I could possibly fit in and he up and left. He returned with a gift box….. I was so embarrassed because I didn’t get him a gift; accept the chocolate body paint (he was chuft with that by the way).

After chiding him for spoiling me so much I opened up the box, to find another white box nestled in pink paper. He was quick to indicate that he put the pink paper in to make it look pretty – sweety pie!

When I opened up the white box, my heart stood still. Vienna Jewellers. They are famous for their Faberge eggs. It was then that Hottie took the box and went down on one knee and proposed. I cried. He had to ask me twice because I was in such shock I forgot to answer him the first time.


The ring again....

Yeah okay, enough already......

The rest is hazy and dream like. We spent every day on the beach, even went fishing! I was attacked by a vicious looking crab with eery red eyes! Long walks along the beach, food galore and all round an incredible time in my life!
