Favourite Foto Friday #15

Two photos for today. The first one is Brenda on the first day of school at her new school. She seemed to really enjoy it, although she was very nervous at first!
Second one, is a photo taken at Botanic Gardens on Tuesday. We had such a lovely day there, although I got a bit burnt. I just love this picture as the bird is looking straight at us. I think this is a Fire Crowned Bishop, but not sure!

Favourite Foto Friday #14

This picture of Brenda just makes me laugh. Taken today at my friends house. She insisted on wearing her goggles to swim, I think that she was showing off and trying to act grown up for the younger kids. Of course the dog was fascinated by this, and kept trying to lick them which she was not too keen about! Serves her right lol!
Had a lovely day with Andria and her boys, weather was nice and hot finally, hope it stays that way. At least until the schools go back on Wednesday!


Finally I am on leave for 3 weeks now. I tried to get some time off during the festive season and/or the school holidays, but despite the fact that I was the first person to request, I was the only one not to get it. So, now it is my turn, and I dont plan on doing any overtime! I have still got 5 days left before Brenda goes back to school, so a little time to do some stuff with her. Got my ipod yesterday, so going to spend some time downloading to that. I also have to finish my christmas journal, and put all the decorations in the loft. They have been taken down, but are in boxes on the living room floor!

10 today!

Today is Brenda's 10th birthday. I can't quite believe that my baby is 10 years old. When I look at her, I still see that tiny little baby that I brought home! It is amazing how time flies so quickly! We had a lovely day today. Went to buddy Bear in the morning for Brenda's first trip there. This is the first Buddy Bear shop that has opened in Durban and she has been dying to go for ages. Of course, for days before hand we have had a running discussion as to what sort of animal to choose and eventually we chose a cat which Brenda called Sarah. She used a voucher and drew some money out of her account to buy extra clothes.
After that we went to the Spur for lunch where she spent most of her time playing on the trampoline and not with us. Dayle bought her an MP3 player, so she was very excited and we spent a while downloading songs for that.
Only 9 days left of the holiday and then we will be at the start of the school year. Brenda is looking forward to her new school, but I am not sure if she is aware of the big difference to Junior Primary. I hope it is not too much of a shock to her system! I dont think she will be that impressed about the amount of work! We are basically organised just a couple more things to get, which I must get tomorrow so we can relax for the rest of the holiday.

Really tired, so off to bed, but just wanted to post this. Brenda says it is her Mona Lisa smile, because you cant see if she is smiling or not.

Happy New Year

Worked the last 2 days and didnt have a good few days. It has been really busy, and of course had minimal staff, so didnt have a good start to the New Year, but on the bright side, it can only get better from here. I didnt land up going out last night at the end, as Sharon cancelled. Although since I had such a terrible day at work and didnt even go to lunch, I wasnt too unhappy! I came home,had supper andwent to bed. Did get up for midnight though,andtried to take some pics of the fireworks with only limited success.
To anyone who reads this blog, I hope you had a lovely New Year and best wishes for 2008!
