Flowers

Che and I are spending the night at my folks. Tomorrow the whole family is coming over. I’m looking forward to it as it’s been a while since we’ve all been together. I bought my Mom the gorgeous bunch of roses you can see below. 

Cee’s Which Way Challenge Week #33: Signs in Afrikaans and English

This past weekend spent with my family at Klein Kariba resort in Bela Bela provided much opportunity for photographing signs.

Why Lellow Cupcakes Should Come With A Warning Label

I will never buy lellow cupcakes again. Especially not when a 4 year old is in the house. One lellow cupcake was enough to get said 4 year old to start laughing manically whislt running through the house slamming doors on his way.

“Consumption of yellow cupcakes will cause 4 year olds to run around at an accelerated rate. Feed with caution.”

You’ve been warned!

South Africans queuing up to vote in the 2014 National and Provincial elections. I queued for 1h45m. Wild horses could not keep me away from making the mark that counts. In the 1st democratic elections in 1994 I queued for 5 hours - wild horses could not keep me away...
South Africans queuing up to vote in the 2014 National and Provincial elections. I queued for 1h45m. Wild horses could not keep me away from making the mark that counts. The day was a public holiday. I voted in the morning and napped in the afternoon, a welcome mid-week break – there should be one every week.
