Since my last post its been a crazy couple of days. It has whizzed past in a blur and I hardly remember most of it.
My little angel, Eli, has slept through until around 6am since he was 8 weeks old and Hannah slept through since 6 weeks old so I haven’t been one of those sleep deprived mommies and if I appear to be then its because of my own doing.
I have been teaching Hannah about Nelson Mandela over the last few weeks so yesterday at the dinner table I announced that today was Nelson Mandela’s birthday and that the Department of Education want all learners to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ at 8am today.
Yesterday was N’s birthday and we decided we were not going out to celebrate. I decided to make a nice dinner at home for just us.
It took me a while to think up what I was going to make but once I had the idea I was even planning the plating up in my head so that it looked and tasted just perfect.
Why are weekends so short? Wish I had more time ….
On Saturday I left the kids with N for the first time since Eli was born ….needless to say, he didn’t cope too well.
#amazingpartiesza had a ‘Cars’ themed birthday party that we were planning so I had to be up early to help with the preparations. The business is run by my cousin T and I. Luckily she does a lot of the work and I assist where I can. T is very good at baking so she baked the cake on Friday and it turned out great. Continue reading
Whew!!! This has been a busy week indeed and it has flown by. Tomorrow is Friday ….yay!!!!
I cant wait for the weekend …..just want to chill and spend some quality time with my family, unfortunately it is not going to be one of those weekends. Too many things to do …too little time!
One of my very good friends has been on holiday in Sweden for the last few weeks and they just got back last week. While chatting to her during the week we decided that we’ll meet for a picnic at Mushroom Park today and since we haven’t been, it seemed like a great plan.
So today has turned out to be the coldest day this winter in Jozi. It’s the perfect weather for staying under the blankie watching movies and enjoying some buttery popcorn. Instead I decided that we should have a lunch time braai. Naturally N was tasked with having to make the fire and braai the meat while the kids and I stayed snug and warm inside while I made the salads.
