A quick post

I have been a bit preoccupied lately. DH's oldest brother passed away on Saturday night and we are flying to Johannesburg tomorrow morning at 6:35am. The funeral is at 11o'clock near Bronkhorst Spruit.  I still don't know how I am going to wake up early enough to be at the airport an hour before takeoff.  I will probably be sleepwalking.  

My little princess turned 6 this month and her birthday was held at Kiddy Lovers.  She is in Grade R this year.  It feels as if she was born yesterday...time flies.

She is a wild one...this girl of mine.

As you can see :-D


On Sunday morning we went for a drive from Sardinia Bay to Van Stadens.

It was shocking to see the oil slick that has spread all the way from Knysna.

The Van Stadens Wind farm with it's 9 wind turbines are coming along.

Will be back again soon.


  1. Looks like your daughter had fun. Loving the cupcakes, looks very yummy x

    Sorry to hear your sad news. I do hope all goes well x

    hugs sally x

  2. Sad news ... God give you strength.
    And the kids - it is always a joy! Happy birthday to the little princess! Hellion! Ha ... at her age, I also enjoyed playing with the boys in football. It is unfortunate that clog up ocean. How to prevent it?

  3. So sorry to hear about the family's loss. Safe travels and stay strong.

  4. Sorry to hear about your loss. Take Care!

    And happy birthday to the princess of yours! What a fun little girl!

  5. Oh I am so sorry for your loss :( What wonderful photos you have captured yet again. Leanne is surrounded by a lot of boys which probably explains her tomboyish nature, but she is very pretty!!

  7. Very sorry to hear about the loss. May his soul rest in peace and may the good Lord comfort you all. Amen. Safe journey on your travel.

    A very big happy birthday to the princess wish her long life, good health and above all happiness and God's blessings and protection always FCC

  8. Happy birthday to your little one!!! Your photos are fabulous!

  9. Prayers of peace for you and your family.
    I think I may have been trying to catch my child rather than take photos...
    I've taken to the philosophy "what I can't see can't freak me the hell out" and walk away with a fixed barbie-doll smile from whatever it is she's hanging upside down from.
    I do this because I did EXACTLY the same thing and have lived, mostly unscathed, to tell the tale... which means, so will Bunny.
    The spot looks awesome though, and the play things look great.

  10. Oh my sincere sympathy at the loss of your BIL.. I hope you have safe travels.. and girls just wanna have fun.. she has life and spark in her your little princess!

  11. I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one... huge hugs being send your way Lynnette...pass them onto your husband. The wild streak in your little princess.... will help her through life ... and lets face it, she is loving it and life.... She looks like you!!!

  12. Sorry to hear of your family loss. Hope the early travel goes well. Happy Birthday to your girl! She is a sweet one and I love these photos! So sad to see man's destruction of nature. It is always so sad to see the wildlife effected. :(

  13. I'm so sorry for your loss. Hugs to you.

  14. So sorry to hear of your loss, Lynette...sending you big hugs {{{}}}

    Your princess is so sweet. She reminds me of my daughter when she was little. Always wanted to play with the boys and do wild things. :)

  16. Hope the weekend went as well as it could, always sad when there is a passing. Those photos are gorgeous and yes, they grow up so very quickly, it is almost heartbreaking.

  17. I can see she's a wild one :)
    Condolences to you and your family.
