Daily update for my Boys 30 April 2014





Good Evening Little Men!

Hope my Champs are doing great today !

Apologies for being so late today but had loads to sort as I was only due to travel the weekend but am now leaving tomorrow morning so it’s a mad house here to pack , book flights , hotels and sort the house …..

I think I have just sat down for the first time sine around 7 am ! , the fact that my work email has not stopped today is not helping either …..seems the lazy calm days are now truly over without any notice ……. I guess it’s like riding a bike you never forget how to do something even if you have not done it for a while ……

I am sure I have packed way to much stuff but as I am away from home for so long on this round I had to make sure I cover all basis on the weather side …..

Ouma and Oupa is going to drop me at the airport as I think it will be one billion pounds to leave the car in the long stay for this one ….lol ๐Ÿ™‚

Boys I am not sure if I will have wifi on the flights tomorrow but will write once I can …so don’t think I have forgotten about you!

It’s bank holiday here tomorrow so at least the road to the airport should not be that busy !

I have had to pack the stuff I have been working on for your big day also , thus the big day might have to come with a ‘twist’ due to practical reasons but I am sure you two will understand …….

I wonder if your week is going well …the weekend is almost here again for you muppets so I hope you have made your list of fun things to go do , please don’t forget to work in some fetch with B&B in the park also as I am sure they need some R&R also ….lol

Well Little Men I need to run again I am afraid as I have a couple of things to still sort and try to find …..like my travel plug ! It’s like a needle in a haystack that thing always ….

But as always I will see you both a little later under our big old green tree in dreamland …..big travel bear dream cuddles and smiles tonight on the menu …..

Night , night Champs …..happy dreams of big adventures …….

Love you both truck loads full and miss you to the moon and back ….

Love you Little Men…..always …

Good evening Little Men !

How are my Champs doing today? I really hope you muppets are well….

It’s been a really long day ……lots to think about and digest ….. I guess time will tell …..

O before I forget I got an email from the SOP in London today , it looks like your hearing on 28 May will have to be delayed for 4 months as the MFA needs 3 months to respond ….positive thing here I think it that you will keep your birth names a little longer ….pretty sure some people are not going to like that but people can not always get their way at some point fair legal process has to kick in and that seems to be happening now , the aid organisation in London also phoned today but I was a little tied up so they have agreed to ring back tomorrow …I am keen to hear what their stance is on your continued hostage keeping by the UK Courts and government now that you hold duel nationality ๐Ÿ™‚

Talking about duel nationality , now that you are Saffers also I think I am going to get you Afrikaans birthday cards as you need to start learning your main langue sooner rather later …… ๐Ÿ™‚

Well Little Men I need to shoot , I need to have some food as I have had nothing but a coffee since this morning ….and I think I need a good nights sleep as I am doing Embassy hopping tomorrow if all goes to plan….

I hope you both are having a fun week , with lots of learning and giggles … Have you started to pack your trunkies for the big birthday holiday yet ? Are you going to pack some of the wild animals I bought you last time I saw you in November last year ?……I do hope so ….sure they will love the beech …..

Night , night Champs …happy dreams of the big blue ocean …….

Can’t wait to see you both later as always under our big old green tree in dream land …..double O dream bear cuddles and smiles please , think I need it today very much ….. ๐Ÿ™‚

Love you monkeys around the world and back and miss you to the moon and back a billion billion times ……

Love you Little Men…..always …..

Hello Little Men!

Hope you muppets are doing well and had a fantastic Monday !

As expected today felt like Sunday …lol …. Big day tomorrow …..might be good news or not such good news ….either way it’s been 6 months now and I need to start getting on with things regardless of time …..

Time is a funny thing , we all always think we have lots of it until that is not the case anymore BUT you can’t live your life with that mindset …no matter what ….

A friend in Dubai told me years ago ; if you don not live life on the edge you take up too much space that other people might need …. Never really got the meaning of that until the last couple of months ……

I read a couple of great posts on wordpress and Facebook today ….people ask others , why they are angry ? why do they speak up ? Why do they fight ? Well I don’t know the answer to these questions for others but for me ‘time’ is the answer to all three these questions time and time again…….

Sorry Champs you must be thinking I have lost the plot today ….well I can assure you both I have not …..it’s just a big day tomorrow in which the word ‘time’ will be the basis of the day in a massive way …….

Well enough about ‘time’ I sound like Dr Who or something … ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you both have had a great start to this week …..sure you have plenty of little super-hero plans that you are plotting …..makes me smile just thinking about it …. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can’t wait too see you monkeys tonight under our big old green tree in dreamland ……looking forward to my daily dose of double O dream cuddles and smiles ….

Night , night Champs …..long dreams of time and lots of it ……

Love you both lots and lots and miss you pretty much the biggest possible lots more ……

Love you Little Men….always ….

Why Do I Punish Myself?


From Torn 2 Pieces 2 Peace

Iโ€™ve ignored opportunities for fun, joy, loveโ€ฆ
Iโ€™ve neglected my health, even my comfort.


silent treatment

Especially since some people in my life have caused me so much pain. One person PURPOSELY creates pain for me no matter what I do. He wants to control my happiness. He wants to be the creator of my pain and joy, my laughter and my tears. He makes promises then turns around & blames someone, sometimes me, for not coming through.

Youโ€™d think Iโ€™d be extra good to myself because of that. A trip to the beach, a bike ride, listen to some great musicโ€ฆ

But no, I often make choices that make life harder on myself.

Yesterday, I spent mostly alone in silence. No texting, nothing.

Silence is a teacher to me sometimes.

deepak wisdom

Silence told me I punish myself because Iโ€™m angry. Iโ€™m angry at the stolen innocence.ย Iโ€™m angry and I canโ€™tโ€ฆ

waar kry mens die bloggers?



Alhoewel my lewerstal maar redelik lyk soos in die verlede, voel dit vir my of hier minder geselsblogs is. Of is dit omdat ekself nie meer tyd het om so baie tussen die bloggers te kuier nie? Mense lees by my, maar gesels nie saam nie. Dalk is dit die onderwerpe? Ek sal โ€˜n bietjie oor die saak moet dink. Dalk moet ek meer by ander kommentaar lewer?

Die afgelope dae het ek opgemerk dat hier weer van die โ€œouโ€ bloggers rondbeweeg. Ek vermoed hulle het hulleself op ander webwerwe tuisgemaak en keer nou weer so stuk-stuk terug na WordPress. Maar ons gee GLAD NIE OM NIE! Julle is BAIE welkom hier.

โ€œWoord vir Woordโ€ vra my: โ€œWaar lees mens ander se blogs?โ€ Dit was natuurlik destyds ook my vraag! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hoe weet mense van my?

In WordPress is dit maklik: As jy in jou Beheerpaneel of Instrumentepaneelโ€ฆ

Vryheidsdag hetย eintlik โ€˜n politieke konnotasie, maar vir my beteken Vryheid ook die vryheid om myself te wees, met my eie oortuigings en opinies. Vryheid is vir my baie dinge, ook vry om te kies hoe ek my werk wil doen, en wanneer.

Mense kyk na myseeย fotoโ€™s en wonder of ons nie werk nie. Daar is mos โ€˜n snaakse persepsie as jy by die see bly is jy heeltyd op vakansie. Glo my maar, my baas is โ€˜n kwaai vrou wat baie ure vereis, dikwels sonder etenstyd. Die waarheid is natuurlik dat ons werk as ander af het en tyd kan afneem wanneer dit ons pas. Dit klink idillies, maar ek dink as ek begin tel, het ek meer dae gewerk hierdie jaar as die meeste mense. Vakansietye werk ons baie hard. Hierdie hele April het ons aanmekaar twee- en driedagbesprekings. Ons maak skoon en was en styk en begin moreโ€ฆ
