We can actually call them the THREE MUSCETEERS, Megan, Fiela and Margie.
School is out and since then they have been visiting each other the whole time.
They took the top photos with their cellphones, Margie's brother helped with this, it was taken on Margie's farm.
They enjoy it there, very relaxing, they can play, shout, laugh and even climb trees. Bit different than in town.
These ones they took from Megan's camera. Megan and Fiela have been friends since primary school and have become very close.
They met Margie in High School and added her to their group.

This weekend there is rugby of course, the Springboks and the British Lions, third and final test. Tonight the girls will be going to Shireen's party,she is just having a little get together, probably misses all the friends. When Megan went to Paris, I actually realised then, how important the kids friends are to them. Megan really missed all of them.

We are planning to go to the Pilanesberg again. . . . . Have to get the lions on camera!! The kids will be joining us this time, so we will have a picnic there too.
For the past few weeks, I have been organising my scraproom, just taking stock of the stash that I collected over the past few years, it is a lot. Then, I digged out a quilled that I started 2 years ago! I really need to finish it, will take photo's of the unfinished product, hopefully pics of the finished product soon:)

When the girls come visit I like baking Choc Chip Muffins, they love it. This is my favourite recipe:

500ml Cake Flour
160ml Cacao
10ml Baking Powder
Pinch of salt
125ml Sugar
250ml Choc Chips
330ml Milk
80ml Sunflower Oil
2 Eggs
5ml Vanilla Essence

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celcius. Put Muffincups in pan and spray with Spray&Cook.
Put dry ingredients together, put halve of the chips in mixture and add the rest and mix well.
Put mixture into the cups and rest of chips you put on top of unbaked muffins. Bake for 20-24 minutes.
