Monday's Musings...






IF I COULD I would fly out of South Africa with my daughters, for the month of the FIFA world cup {June/July} to somewhere like Mauritius, & just chill away from the madding crowd...{My boys are too football crazy to want to join me...}

IN MY KITCHEN CUPBOARD there is plenty of Nestle Unsweetened Cappucino powder {for me}, microwave popcorn {Cami's staple diet}, baked beans {DH's fave} & Mazoe Orange! At last I have found Mazoe Orange {Zimbabwe's best - and probably only by now - export} so I am hoarding it in case it disappears off the shelves again soon. If you see it buy it - it's the best juice/cordial in the world. Beats Oros hands down truth be told...

ON MY DESK...oh my...there's a lot there...newspaper cuttings to do with garden sheds, cupboard fitters, awning installers, some fab new Cocoa Daisy goodness & my latest completed layout {still to show y'all!}

IMAGE IN MY HEAD...my new scrapspace {busy designing it right now} - ALL WHITE - need a blank canvas you know...but I have plenty of colourful accessories so don't you worry...

IN THE MIDDLE OF MY TO DO LIST...I am ALWAYS in the middle of my to do list. I've graduated from a notebook to the "Notes" in my cell phone & update my list daily, deleting what I've achieved & adding what needs to be added! Works for me...

I AM DREADING...the movers arriving. My teak dining-room table still bears the scars from it's last ordeal...


RIGHT NOW I WANT to get everything done so we are ready to move in to our new home, then enjoy a Savannah Light {cider} on my new deck while watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean.

I THINK far too much...but am learning not to worry about the small stuff...and the inexplicable stuff...

GOING TO...enjoy Chinese Takeaways for dinner tonight. Yes I am still {supposed to be} "on diet" but I can't take another evening cooking in this humidity!


Yum, yum!!!

Shame sorry you guys are having such a torrid time of the weather, we have had the coolest summer that I can ever remember.
Glad you're looking forward to enjoying the new place. It will be all that and more.

Haha...we've had more take-aways than I can remember too! Re: the weather - it POURED last night, which should have been a good thing, but the ONE leak in our bedroom turned into EIGHT so it was a disaster!!! 3 leaks over my scrappy desk ;-(...
