14 February 2011

I think I am my own worst enemy. Now those of you who have told me that stop smiling as you read this and be kind!

I have taken on another set of books from a restaurant at the old Cape Quarter, I have been so busy the last two weeks that it has been insane. I was so exhausted at the weekend that I spent most of the time sleeping when we were not out partying! Ash had her birthday at La Med, we sat at a seperate table with our best buds Avril & Nix and enjouyed the beautiful view and great food and great service. We reminised with Avs and Nix about how fast the kids are growing up and how difficult it is to let go. Despite what Andre says I have let go of Ash, is it difficult hell yes! I still worry that she is eating right and sleeping enough and I wish she would let me know whats going on...but I know that she is in a good place and discovering new things I guess I just pray that all I have taught her will stick and that she will make intelligent choices.

Its quite nice to see the change in the boys at home as well it is rather interesting that since Ash has left jason has really come alive at home. He now engages at the dinner table and comes out of his room and the relationship between him and Jesse seems to be better. Its a new season and I think I like it.

midst all the business I did manage to squeeze in some time to finish my dining room table and I think it turned out pretty well. I forgot to take a before pic but it was a pine table varnished with a teak look. This Indonian Teak look is much cooler. And it was fun doing it, although my arm did take a bit of strain when sanding it down. Speaking of which I am so sick of this left arm I wish I could just cut it off and buy a new one. I am doing these exercises that the physio gave me religiously everyday and seeing the physio but honestly I feel like I take one step forward and 20 steps back somedays. Today it aches....I mean really aches and not even an anti inflammatory helps. I am open to any suggestions...anyone had problems with a sore aching shoulder before?

Moving on oh my word I still have not yet secured tickets to U2 yet...last resort camping on beach road with some sushi and a picnic blanket...I am listening to the radio entering every competition. If I dont get tickets I think I will be baby sitting for friends who have tickets.... come on that will be a sad day.

As I write this I am watching Dirty Dancing on SABC 2 ~ my word but the late Mr Swayzie was a hottie! It reminds me that Andy and I wanna take salsa lessons anyone know of someone good who does fun lessons?

Yesterday Rigs was amazing and so funny as he preached but waht a powerful message. i am looking forward to our Corporate fast tomorrow and Wednesday and leave you with these thoughts to ponder

  1. Just love that table!
    We took an old dining room suite that no-one else seemed interested in. It is now wonderfully restored. Was sanded down and cherrywood stained and has a prime position in our house where it brings much joy!
