Seasons greetings

It is that time of year again. Unfortunately it came way too quickly for me and caught me off guard. I have not made any preparations and it is going to be a quiet one this year. No big family gathering and the gifts will be small and only for the children. I can kick myself for not planning in advance like I normally do. I must admit that this has not been a normal year for me in any way. Life has changed and I didn't change with it. Trying to do 10 things at the same time used to be easy, but that was before. What do I mean by that?? I don't know myself anymore. I have decided to take the next couple of days off to sort myself out. I recently moved from the townhouse to a house again and I haven't found my feet in the new home yet. I feel like part of me is hanging in limbo somewhere and I happen to touch it every now and then but I just can't seem to manage to grab it and hold onto it.

Here's hoping you all have a wonderful Christmas. My Christmas is going to be filled with Christmas carols and family time. I am glad I don't have thousands to spend this Christmas because I think I need to celebrate the real meaning behind it for a change.

New Home

Just to let you know that I am moving over to Wordpress. The site on the other side is still under construction, but it is working and usable. No Houdini acts as yet and even though I am missing my blinkies, I am sure there will be a way to get around it in Wordpress.

So, if you want to read some more about my ramblings, please jet on over to and pay my new home a visit. All forms of housewarming gifts will be accepted....hehehe

Revenge is mine. All MINE!!!!!

Remember about 2 months ago I wrote about Houseguest #3
well yesterday afternoon said Houseguest came into our local pub where we were busy playing pool. I was on the table(not ON the table, but playing at the time) and he challenged myself and my partner. We normally play doubles because there are so many people who play there. We(my partner and I) beat the two of them and then he(HG#3) decided to get arrogant and actually challenged my partner to a game of singles. My partner refused and said that I must play. I have not been in the best of moods lately(being a crab, I am prone to moodswings), but I thought that there is just no way that I will let this guy beat me. He stacked the balls and insisted that I play first, but seeing that he was challenging me, I said that I would give him the honour. Well, the pool gods must have been with me, because I gave him a whitewash!!!!! You don't know the term??? For those who don't know the game, each player has 7 balls on the table, either solid in colour or with stripes and the last ball is the black ball. Now a whitewash means that one player sinks all his balls and the black leaving his opponent with all seven of his balls still on the table. Let's just say that I have now had my revenge and I am closing my book on Houseguest #3. He sheepishly retreated to his pozzy across the street from the pub and was not seen again. Aaaahhhh Revenge is sweet!!!

I am experiencing a very strange thing. My blog is pulling a Houdini on me. One minute I can see it and then "poof" it is gone. I have worked through all possible reasons as per Blogger Support instructions. I have even republished my entire blog several times, but still the phenomena continues.

I read on the home page that they are in the process of blocking out spammers. Am I being seen as a spammer? Don't think so?

A number of my regular reads have moved over to wordpress and I have even looked at other solutions, but I am such a loyal person. I don't want to move my blog because that is just such a nightmare. The thought of it gives me the chills.

If this problem isn't resolved soon, I'll have to find another's hoping that it won't be necessary.

You're only as old as you feel

I don't want to start boring you with all the reunion stories, but I had so much fun. Another amazing aspect of the reunion made me realize that when I was 18, I considered a 38 year old as an old person. But, now here I am. THIRTY EIGHT YEARS OLD, but I don't feel old. I still feel 18. Ok, maybe not 18, but closer to 28!!!

I had the perfect opportunity to just snap away and what I found amazing was the fact that the ladies at the reunion looked so smashing. I am not saying the guys didn't look good, but let's just say that Father Time looked after some of the ladies very well!!!!

Maybe I was just lucky to be in a class full of beautiful people, let me show you what I mean...

oh, and then of course, I shouldn't forget about Mr Lesotho and Mr Brut(in the middle - dancing)

The best part of the weekend happened on Saturday night when almost everyone went onto the dancefloor and made a big circle and everyone danced together. That was when I knew this was a huge success!!!

Thank you to all who attended. Thank you for traveling so far to spend a weekend with us. Thank you for all your kind words and thank you for coming with such a positive attitude. It made all the nights of little sleep worth it.

See you at the next one!!!!

Reunion update

Let the saga continue.

We got the evening started off by the current Principal(flanked here by myself and Mr Lesotho) who gave us a brief welcome etc which happened in the bar area. He was about to run off to another function when I hawled him into the main hall for a quick pick. What a pleasant gentleman???

Hope this picture of Mr Lesotho will make my dear Katt happy?

The rest of Friday evening was spent catching up. We were lucky that a few of our old teachers joined us. I did manage a pick or two.

We did have loads of laughs though. At one stage one of the guys grabbed my camera and said he wants to take a couple of pictures. Surprise surprise!! I found these three pictures amongst the ones he took....

There's another Black Label for you Dawn!!

What followed was a lot of drinking and laughing. We had 102 people there on Friday night and most of them were still there by midnight. I took close on 200 pictures so there is no way that I can publish them all here. I will share a couple of good ones with you.

I have hit a glitch. Unfortunately the end of Part 2 has arrived due to internet access problems!!

Watch this space because I have some more funnies coming shortly!!!!
