Some catch up

Well, it was a busy busy weekend ... dinner out with my G-man and the little people at Callisto's Friday evening ... food was awesome but sadly, their tables are too small and the music was way too loud, even the kids were finding it uncomfortable.  Courts had a chicken schnitzel, Jazz had a prego roll, lamb had a Chicken burger and G-man and I had the seafood platter ... the fish was absolutely amazing!!


Saturday morning Courts and I headed to Pick 'n Pay to do the last of the dinner shopping and then we headed off to the flower market, with my vase in hand, the man and boys, and had 4 bunches of flowers arranged in the vase, then looked around the flora shop and got some pretty tea light candle holders.  Back home we went and I started cooking the lasagne for dinner.

My family arrived and we had such a good visit ... my gifts are stunning!!

Schatz rocked with what bought me - a very pretty diamond ring.
Noleen and Gordon bought me a stunning vase and gorgeous mirror which I'll use in my boudoir.
Norma gave me a pair of summer pj's and nickers.
Lynn - well her gift totally rocked ... she gave me a 'lucky box' ... inside was a gorgeous top and necklace ... a book, a key ring, my favourite Toffiffee Toffees, Spiced dutch biscuits and tea.  Just amazing - she is the most incredible gift buyer I know. 

Sunday Courts bought me lovely brown sandals for my birthday and then we headed to the nursery for Jarod to get his venus flytrap.  After that is was off to my sister for lunch to celebrate my nephews 18th birthday.

It was tense there to say the least because as usual there are problems in their marriage and it's really hard to be there ... especially when people are so downright rude toward each other.

But, the food was good and the kids had fun ... and now I'm a little older and more spoilt than I was a week ago :-)
