I missed you all, but it was good to be away from technology. Mel had her notebook with her but forget the connection. Alex had his ipad with him, but only went online to check out world news. other than that Sheldyne played the most amazing games on it! The kids nowadays are amazing! Sheldyne is 4 and he knows his way around that ipad like a star! Woo Hoo!
I thoroughly enjoy our Christmas Lunch. We cooked a leg of lamb, roast spuds, cream spinach, butternut, an amazing veggie mix with cheese sauce. They also did a gammon, but I didn't have any of that. We ate at around 16H00 and only had pudding at around 20H00. That was trifle and malba pud with custard. VERY yummy! I savoured EVERY bite! I also had two glasses of Rose. Needless to say, I lay down after lunch, lol. I didn't have my scale with me, and weighed in on the 27th on my Wii Fit Plus which Michelle, Alex and the kids gave me, at 78kg's. ie .1 up. OOO??? Anyway, I weighed this morning and I'm down to 77.6 kg's. Woo Hoo!!!
I have thoroughly enjoyed all the exercise I was able to get in. A few games of squash, walking and walking and walking (In my NIKE Lunarglide 3 takkies, given to my by Melissa), Wii Fit games ... I must add that they are amazing. Had a rude awakening, according to the Wii, my goal has to change to 59.9 kg's. Oh well. I CAN do this! Swimming in the sea, and swimming in the pool. Weight lifting, lol. Makayla now weighs 10 kg's, and is up and down a million times a day. Oh yes, and I forgot to tell you that we were on the 3rd floor, with NO lift, so it was up and down flights of stairs, many times a day. I LOVED it ALL! I REALLY have been sooooo blessed.
Nicolle and Phillip phoned from London, to let me know that they had got engaged!!! WooHoo!!! He proposed to her under a tree in Hyde Park, while they were at The Winter Wonderland. She is ecstatic and says it's all like living a fairy tale. The ring is stunning, but WiFi won't work with her blackberry (???) so we haven't seen it yet. Phillip believes that the ring should cost 3 months salary, so I'm sure it will be wonderful. I am so pleased for them both. Here's hoping they won't make us wait too long for the wedding.
I hope that you all had a STUNNING Christmas, and thank you so much for all the goodies and wonderful comments. It means the world to me! Take a bow folks. YOU are STARS!!!
We are sooooo blessed and I thank God for all His goodness and mercy toward us as a family!
