30.06.2011 - 13h01 - Lunch

My plan was to go and get my special salad from be-leaf but the morning after the night before calls for something warmer, creamier, yummier... so I got this baby from the discovery canteen for only R21.50!! It's a spinach and ricotta cannelloni (not vegan - but it is still vegetarian!) I'm in lunch time heaven right now!

29.06.2011 - 17h30 - Finally! A night out!

Go with Jess and Heat girls to Baron - drive to Jolly Roger - too full - cross the road and go to Jolly Cool's - adjust to smokiness - eat pizza and drink - take photo's - see Hiton (yay) - pay bill - on the way out go say hi to Hilton and Clint - forget to say goodbye to Jess (bad!) - phone Karen and tell her to come meet us - drink some more - ALMOST win a game of pool - NICE!!

29.06.2011 - 16h23 - Memories

I started going through some of my old FB photo albums... what would we do without pictures? Time feels like it's flown by... these are some that made me smile (and made me miss Ethan even more)

29.06.2011 - 13h40

Just finished putting together a 68 page supplement... the team did it in week!!! We're so awesome!!! (and, yes, I am pouting in this pic... can't wear red lipstick and not pout when taking a pic of yourself)

28.06.2011 - My night

27.06.2011 - 18h27 - I'm lame

... I know it's pathetic of me... but I'm feeling a little lost without Ethan... and it's only day 1. My choices are a) go home to quiet house b) stay in empty office and work c) go to crowded gym.... hmmmm.... none of those options appeal to me *pity party moment*

25.06.2011 - Road Trip

Ethan and I stopped off at Cresta to do some last minute shopping before heading to Middleburg... we got Ethan the little red top hat...

... just kidding!! We bought the beanie!

Pee-break on the side of the highway. It only took us about an hour and a half to get to Middleburg...and we didn't even get lost. Yay!

Ethan's grandparents are really great at making things... so I told Ethan I expect the following when he gets back home: he has to knit me a snood, bake me cupcakes, make me paper animals, speak fluent Afrikaans. Good luck my boy.

It was really wonderful to see everyone again. I knew I would be seeing Sheryl, Karl and Jessica again but didn't know I would also be getting visits from Walter, Marlise, Roland, Grace, Great Gogo and Grandpa. It's been 3 years since I've seen everyone... but when we meet up those 1 095 days float away and it's as if we saw each other yesterday. Much love to you all!

The trip home was lovely (a little sad as I'm leaving Ethan behind - but I know he's going to love his week there). Whenever I do this trip I always spot this farm house... it's so haunting looking, but I love it. I haven't done a solo "long distance" trip in a while... always nice. And again... I didn't get lost. YAY

23.06.2011 - 18h21 - Working "late"

Rolo's - the only way to get through working later then 4.30pm (ha, what a tough life I have)

22.06.2011 - 19h00 - I Love you Ethan

I snuck a little good luck note in Ethan's lunch box in the morning... he had to do a speech in front of his whole grade (+-100 people!!!) and he had an English test...

When we got home I got this from him *very happy, very proud mom*

22.06.2011 - 07h00 - Car Service Day

I took my car to Hyundai Sandton for its first service. I used my Blackberry maps app to get there... it took me the LONG way around then sent me left when I should have gone right... it took me an hour and a half to get somewhere that should have taken me 15 minutes! Thanks!

This was the conversation when I went to collect my car:

Man: OK, just sign here
Debbie: *scribble*
Man: OK, thanks, bye
Debbie: Ummm, don't I owe something?
Man: No the service plan covers this
Debbie: Ummm, someone said I owed money
Man: Oh, did someone call you
Debbie: Yes
Man: How much did they say you owe
Debbie: R1 300
Man: Oh, here's the other invoice
Debbie: Ah! I should have kept quiet!!
Man: Yes you should have, but thanks for the honesty
Debbie: *S-H-I-T!*
