April is one long party month for us!
It is my birthday, Kiara’s birthday, school holidays, long weekends and just when we think we are through it, it is our wedding anniversary. It feels like we go from one celebration to the next for a whole month.
Both Kiara and I kept our birthdays low key this year but I was lucky enough to get two Woolies vouchers which meant new underwear and some new tops. I haven’t been shopping in months, actually I think the last stuff I bought was before Emma was born so it was a great treat.
We have bounced from having quiet stay-at-home-cause-havoc-in-the-house-long-weekends to go out-every-day-exhausting long weekends. It happens when some are the last weekend of the month and others are over pay day weekend. We have had some great family time though that included a birthday celebration, a trip in the new Kuga (post is coming) to the Cable Car in Harties, lazy days spent lounging about, a pizza making evening, a potjie at home and even a shopping trip with 3/4 kids that went well. It has been the perfect mix of friends, family and activities.
I do have to add that as much as I enjoyed the family time, this was the first time in years that the short weeks have been a bit of a pain. As you know I am busy setting up a business here and the short weeks have really made interviews and office time a challenge so I am glad that we are back to business as usual. It also meant that Jane was only here one day last week – I was one outfit away from having to iron David’s clothes this morning. (I don’t think I have ever actually ironed anything of his so my stress levels were threw the roof!).
Today is our second wedding anniversary. Two years (and home affairs still haven’t registered it) and so much has happened in that time that it doesn’t feel like only two years! I suppose that time does fly when you are having fun. Seeing the photos of our wedding brings back such strong emotions. It really was an amazing day that was made even more special because all of my close family and friends played a part in making the day what it was. My mom made the bunting and bought so much cool decor, Natasha and Ansie were the most kick ass bridesmaids who helped make invites, organise, decorate and plan. Davids mom bought table runners, sorted fabric and tailors. Everyone just came together and helped to create the most perfect day. (I am not sharing photos again but if you did miss it here they are.)
What have you been up to? (I am a bit behind on blog reading but I got organised this weekend so I shall be back to commenting properly from today)
