It's ice cold!! LOL I wish we had the snow to go with it but we have snow as the excuse. Snow far away on the Drakensburg Mountains.
A little confession for those of you who don't know me that well. I was one of those spoilt South African's with a fulltime Nanny / Maid. Evelyn has become a family member and is very important to all of us. But hard times have struck and we have had to find alternative employment for her and the economic times being as they are I didn't think we would be able to do it. Yesterday, I got a phonecall about her taking on another part-time position. The people sounded nice enough and this morning hubby took her off to meet them. I'm patiently waiting to hear how her day went. So I hope they accept her into their family as she was accepted into ours.
So spoilt doesn't mean I don't know how to do anything. Okay, I'll admit it, I think I am the world's worst ironer. I'm not too sure if the iron and me are going to be best friends but I'll try. LOL I've been cooking dinners and doing my thing.....and end up flat out exhausted at the end of the day. I just have to get used this new life. My heroes are the woman and men who do do it all!!! WOW!! Now I have to squeeze in time for all that glass I need to melt.
Tomorrow is sort of a free day once I have done the washing, dishes, tidying up etc etc. Then I'll be off to fetch the newest edition to our family, well that is the plan. I have found us a Boerboel puppy from a good breeder. This little guy was the smallest out of the litter and was yet to be picked out. We chose him as he needs to be a family dog not some registered show dude. LOL They are good family dogs and protectors. My next step will be finding out about training. I know there is a school just down the road - so I'll give them a call.
The two little baby guineas are doing so well. I am amazed at how quick they progress. Within 24 hours of their births they were already tucking into carrots, apples and the usual foodstuffs just for them. They are way too cute for their own good. I feel a little photo session coming on. It is too cute how they end up sitting in the food bowl. Which reminds me I need to find out if any of the vets in our area could neuter daddy.....not sure I want to start breeding piggies.
My two day workshop went very well. I'm just tired, teaching takes alot out of me as well. To top it all off it's freezing and I don't do cold well at all. LOL. Time to snuggle up in a blankie and keep warm. Even all the kitties are indoors and Smokey has felt the need to sink her claws into the new bedroom curtains. You'd think she was old enough to know better. LOL
Have a super Thursday evening.
