I tried, I did I did; but I failed.  Of course I have excuses; valid ones at that. I had to prepare for our very first six monthly review last – which I presented this week. I went really well and I got a complement from one of the pathologists.
An of course we are moving into our new house on Monday. Some packing had to be done. I’m typing this from my as-yet-not-packed PC cause it is an essential; right up there on the last-weekend-in-old-house-list with 4 plates, 4 cups, 4 sporks and a list of takeout numbers. No ways am I cooking as well as packing.

On Sunday I took Lili with to church for a second cousin’s Christening. Felt like I was repeating myself the whole time with ‘Sit Still’ and ‘shhhh’.
So today I’m sitting next to the braai of our new house waiting for the builder to show up – there are a few things we need to discuss.
I lean forward to check how many lightbulbs I need to get for my chanelier. As I lean back, Lili leans forward. So I lean forward again, and she leans back. I lean back, she leans forward. We’re playing vertical sew-saw. THAT’s when she says to me :”Mamma, sit stil!”

Tracy: “…and I really want a Twista Choppa Pro, but not for Christmas. It can chop and whip – it has 2 attachments”

Henk: “But you have one.”

Tracy: “No, I have a Braun multi mix”

Henk: “Ja, so why do you want a Twista Choppa Pro?

Tracy: “For the same reason I want garden solar lights,  and haven’t complained about juicing lemons by hand – it doesn’t use electricity!”

Builder waited until last week before he stained the front door. The colour matches the garage doors.

I posted this at Tracy’s Homemade today.

I saw this tutorial in a beading magazine; they used gogga-ma beads and Pandora beads. I simply fell in love with these sugar spoons! I haven’t seen anything like it in shops or at markets, and I knew ICTMT (I Can Totally Make That).

Here are some pics, including ones that didn’t make it into the post.

#JujuFriday

First, read this article: The Daily Maverick :: Julius Malema vs the many-headed Twitter Hydra.

Last week the ANCYL said it would lay a complaint of fraud against Twitter users purporting to be Malema, and warned that if site administrators did not act swiftly to muzzle them it would move to have Twitter shut down.

as Quoted.

I still laugh every time I read that. Then I  just shake my head. His public outbursts are cringe worthy to say the least. He borders (and crosses) on hate speech. He is an embarrassment not only to ANCYL, but to the whole country. And his superiors do NOTHING to reprimand his actions. He is not a dog, so ignoring bad behaviour isn’t going to make it go away. Taking away his toys will. Yes, we poke fun and laugh at his antics, but beware the next public election. Else it’s JZ all over again.

The league’s derision did nothing to deter the impersonators, and now Twitter users have decided to pay tribute to Malema in their own way: by changing their profile pictures to images of the firebrand leader.

 

So, change your twitter profile pic to one of Juju and support #JuJuFriday!
