I have not updated the blog for a while now and it was partly because not much happened, partly because I have problems uploading blogger because of the systems I use and partly because I am now on Face Book which is much easier and quicker. So, for daily news about us and the things we do, that is the place to find me.
A friend of mine had her birthday not long ago and invited us for tea. Because I believe that the birthday person should not be the one who does all the work, I made her a chocolate cake. I thought it cam out quite well, but the reactions were wonderful! It was so popular that I had to bake another a week later and have an order for another for someone else's birthday which would be her present. It is not as rich as it looks and yummy!
Luzaan had tonsilitis again and because everyone gets so sick so early this year I decided to take her to the doctor quicker than I normally would. We caught it in a very early stage, but still she had to drink antibiotics for 7 days! She had to stay at home 2 days and for the first time she was able to read to herself while in bed. On the second day she told me that it is actually nice to be sick because we spoil her. (Obviously not very sick ;) The flu has been quite bad this year and eveeryone who got it was in bed for at least a couple of days. That is why I am not taking any chances! David and I both had flu jabs this year, so we will have to wait and see how it goes!
In the last little while, since the house have been finished, not much has happened. Suzelle had her Gr3 entrepreneurial day. Together with her friend Mieke they sold Glow (Sticks http://www.glowhead.co.za/) and did very well. They were restricted to selling 70 packets of whatever and sold out. They made R140 profit. They did not win any prizes but enjoyed the day very much!
David surprised me with some mini daffodils last Saturday. It was so sweet! He had to work in the morning and came back at about 15h30. Later that evening he asked me wether I had checked my email lately and I said no. I knew then that he had sent me something so I went to check. He sent me a thank you note for looking after the kids and all the things I did for them and helping at their school and the things I do for other people to make a difference in their lives and that he appreciates it and me. Then he said that sometime something will appear in the kitchen for me. I went straight there and there it was! It was beautiful and sweet and special because he does not do that kind of thing very often!
Luzaan lost another tooth yesterday, physically pushed out by the new one again. This time at least the tooth mouse did not forget again! I wanted a picture of the gap in her teeth, but she gave me such a silly grin (as children always do when they have to pose for photos;) that David had to tickle her for a proper laugh! I like the photo because that is really the way she is and I think the silly hat suits her and her personality. The fact that it keeps the ears covered and warm is a bonus of course!
