What I can tell you now. . .

Hallo Everybody!!
Bad, bad,bad, that is me on blogging at the moment!! My life at the moment is just CRAZY!! Crazy in the sense of that I am trying to find my feet in my "new life" will tell you as  I go.
Ok, let me tell you about this photo!lol!! The school had a singsong, so the grade 11's had to dress-up "common" what a theme??? Common!! ok, this is what these two made of it!!

 Ok, this is the school-choir.  They sang on the evening of the Winter sport Capping. They are having so much fun here, hanging onto the lips of their choir leader! At this event the school introduce all their wintersport teams and then the First Teams of each sport, gets special jackets, very special evening actually. . . ours were very emotional. . .will tell you just now.
 This is the First Hockey Team of this year and YES Megan made it!! She was so happy!!
And this photo, Andre Rieu at Sun City's Superbowl. It was our 8th Wedding Anniversary, so hubby treated us with tickets to his show. AMAZING!! The sound was perfect and the atmosphere like a Wonderland.
He is a wonderful person and the whole orchestra is just spectacular!!

So my "new life" at the moment is just ME. Hubby took the job away from home. 450 kilometres to be exact. I can't tell him exactly how I feel, I don't want him to worry, BUT IT IS HARD!! He is my anker at home, we are friends and do everything together and I miss that.  Megan is also finding it hard, the two of them are actually joined by the hip!!lol!! I am just moving, I don't sit down for one minute, otherwise I will fall into a dark place. . .
I took up the quilting classes, went for two actually this week! I am enjoying it very much! I am cleaning, spinning, walking, reading,sewing and quilting!! But it feels i am doing it all at once! SO, next week I will be visiting him, maybe then, I will have peace, just to see that he is actually ok in his new environment.
ABOUT Megan, she is currently in the United States of America, Salt Lake City to be exact! She says it is great!! She and two of her friends are staying with a family with 6 kids!! Can you believe it, this morning they went to school with them and even had a Spanish class!! And as we speak, she is getting ready to partake in an athletics event! oh and they had waffles for breakfast!lol!

That girls, is what I can tell you now. . .


  1. Wow - that really does sound like you are running around like crazy!! Congrats on the 8 years and looking forward to seeing some of those quilts [always wanted to try that!].

  2. Those two look like proper "floozies". I am so sorry to hear that you are alone at the moment. Hang in there my friend...this too will pass. I am sure Megan is having a ball in the US.

  3. You took some wonderful photos Tania! Shame I am so sorry to hear that you are on your own at the moment - what is the longterm plan for how often you or hubby will visit? I would not be too good on my own as I am always surrounded by people, yet I like to retreat to my studio - but it is nice just knowing that outside there is noise! I hope it means that you will have more time to scrap & blog though - you may as well keep yourself as productive as possible! You do know that Salt Lake City is THE capital of scrappy goodness in the world?!? Most of the big manufacturers have their warehouses there - best you phone Megan with your list! Jack also made the A Team hockey & is touring to Joburg these hols :)

  4. Souns hectic! Yes, common is a theme, just come to Brakpan( and you have to say that in your best Afrikaans :)) and you will understand.
    Congrats to Megan for making first team.
    I feel for you with hubby being so far away, but just try to remember that you made the decision for the family and that it WILL be worth it in the end. Doesn't make it any easier though.
    Sterkte vriendin.

  5. Wonderful experience for your daughter to sure she will come back a lot more grown up...and with more life experience.
    And all you will hear is * In America..we did, we got, they do, they have...In America!!!!!
    I get it from my daughter who was there for 4 months.

    Sad about your hubby's job. Here in Germany so many families live like that, its normal for them..the men go home on a Friday night and return to their * apartments * the Sunday....its too much to uplift the whole family, but I personally would hate it as well...
    So hope it works out for you...

    The article did not appear in the Rapport I hear as was too check this Sunday, who knows.

  6. Wow you are hectically busy...have missed you in blogland and now I know why.... congrats to your daughter... things are definitely looking good for her this year. Enjoy your creative time too... sounds like you are learning lots.
