School has started.....

School has started with its normal chaos and fun, and it was so nice to have a short week.
I have got three very important tasks to do this weekend;

1. Shop for lace & stuff for my "heritage page l/o's " from my SIL Jenny in NZ - so a big thank you to her for the inspiration & hours of scrapping set for Sunday. I also have a gift voucher from my local scrap shop so what a pleasure. "Okay did this one & of course spent more than the voucher LOL."

2. Clean out my two trolleys on wheels which holds all my scrapping goodies etc as my DH has been moaning about it "spreading" which I have to admit it does. "Still not quite done."

3. Finish off our local Mothwa Haven books to go off to the auditors on Monday - probably should be no. 1 but lets be real here!!! Its the last time I have to do this as after 10 years I am giving up all my committee and volunteer work for a while I just need a break for me for a change. "This is not done yet........."

I honestly feel that life is hectically busy at the moment (probably the same as ever) but I just feel bogged down. So I am sure if I can get a few things sorted it'll actually start getting better. I hope everyone has a great weekend & please everyone VOTE on Wednesday 22nd.

Oops here are the pics !!! from the last post...

What more can I say this is a wonderful little shop in the Natal Midlands......

My hunters & Jan at Platkop Farm.

Pizza & her two babies. She is patient & such a dainty dog. Alan & a fat baby.... called Donut !!!!!

God's promise of a beautiful day.

Puppies & Chocolate nothing better...

As its school holidays I went on one of my DH's business trips shew its exhausting, I think I will have more sympathy for him now.(That was probably his plan all along LOL.) Anyway I really do not like travelling over Easter anyway. We left Durban late on wednesday afternoon & drove up to Harrismith & spent the night - needless to say us Durbanites forgot any jackets or jumpers & at 05.30am when we left for Jhb it was freezing. Two clients later to deliver & pick up leather, two more in Pretoria & then drop off a load at SAA cargo for a delivery to Nelspruit we left for Durban. This all took till 2.30pm as in Jhb you drive for ages where ever you go !!!! Needless to say it was also the day before Good Friday so traffic up & down was horrific - we decided to stay at Fordoun in Nottingham Road overnight (our haven which we adore) & am so glad we did. The staff are tremendous & friendly & the atmosphere is wonderful & we just collapsed into bed after a super dinner. We woke up at 09.10am this morning - needless to say we did not get to church today but got home after a lazy breakfast & slow relaxed drive. We did stop however at the famous Belgian Chocolate Shop on the way home - pics above just to get our children some more Easter eggs - just couldn't resist.

The little bundle in DH's arms is one of a pair we so so wanted to bring home but they are already taken, you can see the Mom "Pizza" she is lovely & good natured & her puppies adorable.

The chocolate house !!!!

A South African sunrise - just nothing beats it.

My hunters on the farm at Harrismith .........don't bother I have heard it all.

School is out for Easter

Thank goodness school is out and we are on holiday for a very short Easter break.

I wish everyone a very Blessed Easter & a wonderful Holy week coming, its such a wonderful time of our christian lives.

I have after a lot of time pondering and discussion - resigned from school & will be leaving end of second term. Both really exciting & really scary!!!

Still DH & I did the grocery shopping (really blah) and Easter eggs for family (fun part of shopping) and I went off to relax and had a pedicure - what a lovely way to start the school holidays.
