...and even more good marks! Ethan got 80% for his EMS test - which means I owe him a Lindt chocolate (I promised him one for every test where he gets 80% or more). He also got full marks for all 4 of his Afrikaans tests - so he got these sweets from his teacher. Don't you love how we reward good work with fattening, artery clogging, unhealthy food. YAY!
We had a family day / picnic at Bush Babies.
I always love the drive to Magaliesburg.
We went on their guided tour through the sanctuary
There's this spider monkey named Sarah who loves the attention from all the people. She was obsessed with my dads camera. Very cute.
The rest of the afternoon was spent picnicking (lying in the sun) and candle making.
My candle was a bit of a boo-boo so the man there cut it and made it into two candles.
This is how he decorated the little candle... love the spelling of my name :)
When I got to work, Charlene told me to go to Citypower to find out when my area is going to be load shedding this winter.
I will have no power from 6pm - 10pm every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday!!!!!!!
Guys! You know what that means!? That means no TV on a Tuesday (that's OK, crap TV on a Tuesday), no TV on a Thursday (that's my night off - I watch soppy chick flicks and eat chocolate - crap!), and no evening TV on a Saturday and Sunday.... it's Winter, we're meant to be lazy and lie on the couch watching TV and eating winter comfort food!!!
My morning usually begins at 5am. I then have a whole 90 minutes to get ready at a leisurely pace. But not this morning... crap!
This morning Ethan thought he was so cool cos he could write "hello" on the calculator (remember doing that?) anyway... I totally blew his coolness away when I showed him I could write "debbie" on a calculator. BOOYAH

So... at work we have this healthy challenge thing coming up. If you are healthy you get R2000. Nice!
They do a urine test (YAY!) to see if you're a smoker, take your blood pressure, make you do a step test (YAY again!), BMI, waist measurment, cholesterol and glucose tests. I'm all booked and ready to get me some M-O-N-E-Y!
Ian was my boss before I moved to magazines... he's the nicest male boss (I say best male boss because I don't want to upset Jenny. Jenny is my favorite female boss :) I've ever had and a great friend too. It was so incredibly wonderful to see you again Ian (it's been around 6 years). Poor Ian went through my "rough years" with me - from unhappy relationships to shaving all my hair off, to lending me bail money (not for me - don't ask). You truly are one of a kind! Much love xooox
My mom just phoned to say there's a competition on Highveld where you can win a fully furnished apartment on a golf estate. The catch? You have to listen to Highveld the WHOLE day to see if they call out your name... so shhhhhhhhh... I'm trying to win a home
OMG... my life has come down to pencil sharpenings! That's the photo that describes how I spent my evening!!??
