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!
