Drive thro car wash

I didn’t even know this about myself… but I’ve never taken a car through the automatic car wash by my self before. Ususally mrb drives and it’s always in a childish way kind of fun to sit in there while the car is being beaten to death clean.

So when I took the car today, I was stunned to realised I hadn’t gone in there by myself before. Random.

I had my camera and took lots of pictures for the duration of the momentous event (well, it certainly kept me entertained for the entire 3.5 mins) I’m just not sure what the operator thought I was doing in there, though! ;o)


Does this day mean anything special to you?

Well, this IS the life!

Today, I’m wine & chocolate tasting, followed by an ‘unforgettable luncheon’ by one of SA’s top 10 chefs… on a gorgeous day, in Stellenbosch, with j-a.g.

Whatchoo doing??

PS:UPDATE: some pics below & the day made even MORE unforgettable by winning 2 nights DB&B accommodation at Rocktail Bay – click here, if you want to see 🙂

We finally got the painting we picked up at Zanzibar mounted – what do you think?

See you there!


I’m in my element… the happy one 🙂 mrb has decided to work one job instead of 2, which means he’s working from home these (last 2) days. He did ask whether it would be ‘ok’ since I am on sabbatical and I have my own space. But – of course its ‘ok’!

He’s less stressed, he’s happier, he’s home more, he’s more ‘present’. I now have the company of my best friend, we get up when we want to (no more alarm clocks!) we smile and joke and have a wonderful time. We even had our very first #lunchbeer today. Although that was an epic fail** on mrb’s part… but we have time to practice!

On my way home from my 2nd #luncbeer of the day (thanks ka), Fresh was playing the ‘cheese of the day’, which was none other than “Katrina And The Waves – Walking On Sunshine”. Singing along, as you’re supposed to with cheese of the day; I had to reflect on how perfectly happy I am right now and if all the kuk previously made it possible to be this happy – then, ja: it was worth it!

I feel the love,I feel the love, I feel the love that’s really real
I feel the love, I feel the love, I feel the love that’s really real

I’m walking on sunshine , wooah
I’m walking on sunshine, woooah
I’m walking on sunshine, woooah
and don’t it feel good!!

** first he doesn’t finish his #lunchbeer, THEN he won’t let ME (his wife for life) finish it for him. #epicfail.

I realise this is morbid

But I don’t see why I have to experience this on my own. Right – so you remember the snake that Lazer brought in?? Well looky look what I got today:

They’re getting bigger… I wonder what I’ll get for Christmas?? An entire reindeer maby?


When you’re feeling completely bleak and not really in the mood for anything fun, what better way to put a smile on your face than leaving the house and finding your garage door graffiti’d with your name and a big smiley face!!

Thanks mrb x
