A slight diversion - someone I follow linked to someone who linked to a post about how to pluralise surnames and that post went viral. Did you see it?
But as usual, you had to read the comments. Oh my word!
When I typed Youngs, it made me think of that post :)
This meet-up was way, way overdue.
As in... we were supposed to meet up last December at Bambanani when Kade got sick.
So basically Sam and I have always had 1:1 friend dates which is lovely but it restricts meeting times when you're both mothers.
Sam, did you read that? MOTHERS!
Moving on (I sometimes still can't believe that!)
This is the first time I saw this little one in the flesh and OH, she is a delight. A delight I tell you.
My kids love this child.
Even tonight K was looking through my phone and squealed (I wonder where she gets that from?!) when she saw Gemma.
As for Kade, he is such a well-mannered little boy (you all know I have a soft spot for kids with good manners).
Do you know what he said to me????
I LIKE YOUR LAMP!
(It is nothing fancy!)
Kade and my kids played together so nicely and you may recall a pic of the 3 of them eating ice-cream.
We had such a lovely afternoon with all of them and I can't wait to do it more often.
It's so nice when the husbands and kids get on, isn't it?
Sam is one of the most encouraging and generous-spirited people I know. I love seeing her comments on my blog and on other blogs and Instagram feeds.
Such a blessing you are :)
And yet she can also speak the truth in love. I love people like this in my life and I appreciate it in you, Sam!
This one was taken right after the kids' baths in my very sunny kitchen.
Well now, I do believe I'm finally caught up with October posts!!!
Every year, at this time, D comes up with this theory that we're too busy and we need to only socialise on max two weekends a month.
That's all well and good but this is a bad time of year and because of recency, everything feels worse.
And obviously in winter, Joburgers hibernate so it all evens out (in my mind).
But I wonder if there might be something to having a very loose plan.
Do you do intentional socials, or more to the point, intentional no-plans weekends?
