Our country goes to the voting polls on Wednesday, 22 April 2009

And yup, I know who I’m voting for. It’s going to be interesting to see the turnout as the ANC has a breakaway party that seems to be quite popular. I love voting day, it’s full of excitement. 😀 I’m going to be baking a cake and cupcakes for Matthew’s birthday as well so I’m looking forward to it. 😀

Matthew turns 5 this week Thursday!

Matthew turns 5 this week Thursday!

Gosh already! He is counting down the sleeps until his birthday. You should see his eyes light up when we talk about it. 🙂 He is so excited for his presents and keeps asking me if he can open just one. Lol no my boy I think not. 🙂 I have Thursday and Friday off to prepare for his little party on Saturday. It’s going to be one hellova thing getting it all done, sometimes I wonder why I agreed to have a party for him in the first place, but then I see how much he really enjoys and appreciates it and then it’s all worth it.

His party is from 10am to 12pm on Saturday morning at a play venue in my suburb. We’ve just invited a few friends and classmates. He’s having a T-rex cake which we ordered last Saturday. I’m making Ben 10 cupcakes and some eats for young and old. Wish me luck!

I need to babble… bear with me:)

I need to babble… bear with me:)

I’ve noticed such a change in myself over the past few weeks. It’s been quite a shock as I feel different, yet the same. It is so hard to try and put into words and I’m feeling a little silly trying to explain it. *blush* I feel as though I’ve rediscovered a part of myself that I thought was lost. It was simply just filed away and forgotten. I’ve rediscovered me, who I used to be around 10 years ago or so, and it feels so good. I’m grasping to hold onto it, so scared it slips away again. 😦 The thought of that brings me to tears. I have to say that I’m loving it, totally and immensely. It took a bit of a while at first to try and comprehend what was going on, but now I feel like I am making it fit into my life as it is now. It’s a bit difficult but I’m hoping and praying it works out.

I know who or what I have to thank for this, and I’ll be keeping that to myself for now as I feel a bit embarrassed sharing too intimate a detail on here. I think my husband must have noticed the change, I hope he likes it as much as I do. I hope it stays as I’m enjoying feeling this way – positive, good, confident, happy, younger, lighter. These are all good feelings. I’ve been feeling bad for way too many years now. I feel happy, happy with me and my life, as if I can accept things the way they are and just deal with it, instead of being depressed because I don’t have what the Jones’ have.

Wish me luck guys… xxx

Parents’ Evening

Parents’ Evening

matt-drawingSo yes, it was parents’ evening last week at Matthew’s school. I was pleasantly suprised by a wonderful report from his teacher, who couldn’t stop raving about how well he is doing and how beautiful his art is. I’m bursting with pride at my little boy. He really makes me so proud to be his mom. The kids had culture day at school and had to draw someone from one of the different cultures in South Africa. Matthew drew a zulu girl and his teacher called me one side to show how excellent it is. *puffs chest out*
