My brother like most men are clueless about many things and often need us to tell them information they need.
So today my brother and his gf were going to the Taste of Durban.They both had never been before.So like always I had to share the information on the event with my brother before he left.
I visited the show yesterday so was still armed with menus, maps and general information.
As my brother was about to leave home , I sat him down and did a run through of the event. From the purchasing of crowns, to the stalls he had to visit . I even marked on the map where he need to visit and ticked off on the menus what he needed to eat.
I felt like the ORACLE giving him all this important information.The Oracle was a nickname , my friends in London gave me 🙂
So lets wait for my brother’s feedback on the event and lets see if the information I gave him was useful or is his sister silly……
Today would have been my Dad”s 64th birthday.My dad was an amazing man in more than one way though he often didnt show his love and affection we could feel it. My dad always made sure my brother and I always had the best and never needed anything.Birthdays are always special events in our family, so in keeping with that tonight we will have a family meal with all the treats dad loved and we will be feeding street people next weekend in dad”s memory.
Happy Birthday to my one in a million dad, WE MISS YOU EVERYDAY.The last year has not been an easy year for us but we are getting there. I hope you are proud of all the achievements Nico and I have made especially this last year. I hope today you are partying like always with cake, ice cream and your whiskey.
LOVE YOU ALWAYS
When I was 5, I recieved my Frog teddy from dad. I fell in love with this teddy and soon he became my companion every night to the land of nod. Over the years Frog had to undergo some reconstructive surgery from mum as his stuffing was coming out but once fixed he was all brand new.
My brother often teased me, of my love affair with Frog. He said I thought that one morning, I would wake up and find my Frog has changed into Prince Charming. We all laughed at his theory but maybe in my childhood mine, I believed this fairytale.
Frogs are often depicted as ugly but with magical powers in many different cultures and myths. In European folklore frogs are depicted as sinister and associated with witches and potions.
So 30 years later, Frog is still alive, I no longer have him as my sleep companion and I am still single awaiting my Prince Charming. Hopefully the spell will be broken and I will meet him soon……
All those who know me know I am obsessed with technology in all forms and on all platforms. From Twitter to Facebook to BBM….
So on Friday I got to work only to find my Blackberry frozen , I been a techno gadgety girl decided to fix it but alas the phone would not come on at all. Such horror for me cut off from the world..Luckily for me I had my Samsung Tablet on me as I was stuck at work with everyone gone and no way of getting in touch with my brother .Then the genius in me decided to email him and my friend M who rescued me by calling my mum.
Even my 2 fully charged batteries didnt help me this time. So since Friday I have been with a phone and connection to my Techno world. Went into the Service provider yesterday only to find out that my phone needed a software upgrade but alas the guy who normally does it was away till Monday.But while there I found out valuable info on BB BIS and how it would affect me as well as that I am due for an upgrade next month yipeee.
I must admit I feel very out of the loop not constantly been in the loop but its a kind of Techno detox. Last night I was able to catch up watching several series and even got to watch a documentary which was fab.So maybe I needed this Detox….. However mum has given me an old Nokia phone with very limiting features just sms and calling actually feels strange and weird having this phone.
Hopefully tomorow I will have my phone and be in the loop again… To all my fellow bloggers and tweeting community I have missed you guys.. Hope you missed me too…..
