January 27 - Dang, einaar

So today was another insane day.  Yesterday i did not even take pictures as i wore my 'reliable' black trouser with the DH black and white striped t-shirt - only difference, I wore red bangles and red bead necklaces.

When G-man got home, we rushed off to The Glen so that I could have Missy passport photos redone, then he had his done.  We then went down to the optometrist and G-man chose his frame and Liam chose a new frame as he lost his glasses just before school finished in December.

We then did lunch shopping and came home and had dinner.

Today started off with a visit to Home Affairs to apply for new passports.  Oh boy, what a rigmarole - I forgot to take copies of their dad's ID, but then turned out that the scanned letter giving permission was not acceptable, it had to be faxed!

So, we applied for G-man's and mine, then their poor dad ended up staying up until about 3am his time trying to get his id and the letter faxed through.

I headed back there after work and yay - it's done.  Now we wait 6 - 8 weeks for them.  At least it's done and they should be here in time for their visit in the July school holidays.

The jersey made me feel close to Taryn the entire day as it smelt like her.  I'm not sure where it comes from.  The skirt is a Merien Hall from Edgars, the shoes are also from Edgars, the shirt is from Legit (I don't usually buy there) and the earrings are from Miladys and the belt from Meltz

After taking these photos and trying to get up the back stairs, between getting past and over the dogs and this time both the boys were bombarding me, I tripped and banged up my shin.  My camera fell over on the tripod, but I don't think it got hit too hard, but will have to go and check it out.  Shew, to be in such demand.  My shin however has a lovely big bruise on it now :-(.


  1. Sounds like a rough day. Sorry. Bureacracy is often a frustrating gauntlet to run.

    I like how belting this outfit makes it work better. You know all the tricks!

    Hope your shin heals. Life is full of bumps and bruises.

  2. Sounds like a terrible tim -- at least you look pretty though! I love that skirt...

  3. Yes, sounds like a rough few days indeed. I'm cringing about the banged up shin too. :(


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - I love hearing others feelings and appreciate your time. Please be honest - BUT kind.

Have a fabulous day now and I'll be coming round to visit you as soon as I can.

Thanks again, Wendy
