I normally tell this to everyone who feels down in the dumps, like I did yesterday, it's time for me take my own advise. So today I'll blog about something more positive, like the day we travelled to Montagu Springs for the afternoon. What an amazing place it is to relax and just chill.
My cousin Shaheema and her family had booked a cabin to celebrate her mom's 50th birthday. We were invited to join them on the 27 July 2008, which suited us perfectly because it was a Sunday. My kids and I slept over at Nadia's place seeing that we were going to leave early the morning. Montagu is about a 2 hour drive out of Cape Town, a most scenic one too!! Well, we didn't get to leave early as planned because we stayed up too late the Saturday evening!! So by the time we were out on the road it was already 10am, meaning we would only arrive at about 12pm, just in time for lunch!! Soos regte slamse nuh!! LOL!!
I'm convinced Aunty Faeza decided to play 'peekaboo, I see you', with this photo!! You can imagine my reaction when I viewed it!! Side-splitting stuff!! LOL!! The adults ended up playing 30 seconds, a game sure to bring out the best in people!! Depending on the explanations given though!! LOL!! Suffice to say the ladies ended up winning, sorry guys!! We just can't help it if we respond well to pressure!!
By the time it was time for us to leave, I was so stuffed, I could hardly move!! I certainly tend to overdo it when the family gets together!! Nadia and I decided that we definitely returning to Montagu for a weekend!! It's an awesome place to get away!! And after my experience yesterday, I certainly think I deserve it!!
Here's to making new memories filled with laughter and loved ones!! Just in case you're wondering where the pics of the guys are, they were too busy getting their hands dirty. And we were having too much fun to notice, but Shhhhhhh, don't tell them I said so!!
