Look where I went!




I went here today
because I had a R200 (USD25) voucher to redeem {a perk one gets when buying season tickets to the rugby}. We've bought season tickets for the last two years & never used our vouchers until now. We get 6 vouchers each (dh & I) per season. Unfortunately they don't accumulate so if you snooze, you lose! So we have lost out on thousands of rands worth of vouchers & decided we really needed to investigate & get to grips with "how it's done"...so off we went.


And this is what we did there...


I had ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE as to what I was doing yet came away with R750 (nearly USD100!!!) and it cost me absolutely nothing...so I left rather gobsmacked & came straight back home, got online & found some treasures locally (no easy task let me tell you...)

Well I nearly fell off my chair when I found this (I don't need to tell you what it is...)

and these (on sale...) clearly unappreciated for what they are...

Just LOVED the Mimosa line..


And some other cuties that I just couldn't resist...

So all in all it's been a very good day! Funnily enough I decided a couple of days ago that I really needed to get serious about my prayer life & work on improving it & really being directional. One of my prayers specifically being "to be blessed financially" {a prayer I have never prayed before so blatantly but I am just tired of this year's struggle} then this...well I'm not saying that God blessed me in a casino...I'm just sayin'...{no such thing as luck so I know it wasn't that...}
