My life in bullet points (and photos)

  • Francshhoek was awesome – Mr OL and I went there for a couple of days leaving Baby OL with my mom.  For those of you that live in the Western Cape, I hope you appreciate it.

 

Franschhoek Valley
  •  We bought too much wine (can you ever buy too much….) and have had it couriered home – nice.  My favorite wine farm was Beyerskloop – good staff, great CHEAP wine and it was free to taste!

 

    • Wine to taste at MoresonIt was COLD!

 

Simonsig - Stellenbosch
  • I STILL can’t get onto Blogspot blogs.  It is really beginning to annoy me! As 6000 said – don’t you all want to change to WordPress please?  I would really appreciate it, I miss being able to read your blogs.
  • I have a cold again – SUCKS!  I have not been sick for years and now have had a cold twice in the past 2 months.
  • Baby OL is a genius and ever so cute! 
  • I am home alone for a bit – Mr OL is travelling to Botswana for the next couple of weeks (months/years) Not that I am really alone, 2 very protective guard dogs and 2 not so protective cats and of course Baby OL.  Not to mention my wine drinking partner / neighbor and my mom who seems to be more at my place lately than her own (I love it).
  • I can’t get motivate for work today – hopefully tomorrow is better.  It better be – I have lots to do.
  • Although a procrastinator (see above) – I don’t know what has happened.  I have started looking at ideas for Baby OL’s 2nd birthday party –yes it is still 9 months away…  I am thinking of a Teddy Bear’s Picnic –w hat do you think?

Mother’s Day once again SUCKED!  For those of you with husbands that actually do something on days like this – like say Happy Mother’s Day to you I hope you appreciate it.  It is horrid when your husband refuses to acknowledge it.  He places it next to Valentine’s day which he also refuses to acknowledge.  Having a real little cutie pie makes it all worth while though.

Such a cutie pie!

  1. That first pic was taken from the spot where we got engaged last month 🙂

    When baby girl starts going to school you will get gifts and cards – they are the BEST 🙂

  2. Ah, looks wonderful. so good to get a break from the Parental Role hey?

    Ag, the mothers day thing can be a letdown when kids are little if your man wont go there…BUT as Laura said eventually the kids take ownership and do the most delightful things – just wait, your turn WILL come!

  3. The blogspot thing is weird? Have you updated your browser? Hope you not running the dreaded bug fulled IE???

    A Teddy Bear Picnic sounds so cute – I also saw the most delightful LadyBird themed party recently – such a cute theme!

  4. The Cape remains my most favorite holiday destination…besides Plett of course…but I love to return to laid back PE where everything is close;-) Happy Mothers Day to you and sooner than you think your little poppet will be the one who acknowledges this day.

    PS…when are we going to do coffee?

    1. Lynette- when would suit you. If it is during the week could we go somewhere in central as I don’t get that long for luch. Or a Saturday morning 9:30 ish or late afternoon is also good.

      1. During the week in Central at lunch time sound great. Some lovely shops in Stanley Street. My cell is *************…I will go along with any day that suits you.

  5. Happy Mother’s Day! (yes, I know its late, but better belated…) and once your gorgeous cutie patootie gets bigger then you will get such delicious surprises;-)
    Men, hey!?

    Love living in Cape Town!

    Teddy Bear’s picnic sounds like a wonderful idea,can’t wait to see what you make!
    (I have just been looking at the asparagus cake baker and there is a gorgeous rainbow doodle cake, which I am tempted to make for Bean’s no 4 party…!- and that is only in March next year.. or, my birthday would do too;-))

    1. Thank you.

      I lived in Cape Town a bit a few years back and loved it too.

      I am really excited about planning her party. Maybe we will ahve to do a practice round with the cakes. My birthday is only in April so I cant do it for that either.

I would love to hear from you
