The weekend that was

It does seem a bit odd to me that I would be sort of getting back into blogging just as I'm going to hit the point of  falling out of it again. Anyhow, back to the short and sweet post.

Friday evening we had a braai with friends we hadn't seen in awhile. Lots of food and pudding ftw :). We also played Cards Against Humanity for the first time - it's so wrong, but so funny. It's really not a game for everyone though. Saturday was pfs at Fanaticus - I played with some new folks, all in all it was fun. Post Fanaticus we went to Canal Walk to find a rocker\comfy chair for feedings. It wasn't a successful trip.

Instead of diner at the mall we got some Steers and hired dvds. We watched This is How it Ends and Fannie Fouries Labola. The local movie was much, much better than the vanity project which was the first mentioned. I still have the chorus from one of the songs in Fannie Fouries Labola stuck in my head. Sunday was a big lazy day.

How was your weekend?

Those resolution things

Yes, I know that January is almost done...and it seems a bit late for a resolution. Only this isn't a resolution per say, it's more of a has to happen. I've decided that 2014 is the year I make peace with my hair.

I have thick, unruly, almost curly hair. Every time I wash it it takes me about two and a half hours to flat iron it. I don't blow dry, that'll just take too long, so I make two buns and let it dry like that during the day. Then of course there'll be top up flat irons between washes so that my hair can carry on looking semi decent.

Sure making peace with my hair might not seem like a big deal, or very hard to do, but when you've grown up with lots of emphasis placed on hair it's very hard to let go of certain thoughts. The state of my hair is so important to me, that even if I'm wearing something I know I look good in, and am having a good day it won't matter because my hair isn't looking good. I worry that I'll be considered a mess because my hair is a mess. Jerall will call me beautiful and I'll shrug it off because why...my hair is a mess.

I'm hoping that with the arrival of Keiden it'll be easier to just deal with my hair. I won't be able to worry about it because I won't have time...and I'll just be too tired to deal with. Maybe I will be able to respond to my inner critic with "It doesn't matter, it's just hair."

Does the state of your hair bother you as much as mine does me?

The birthday weekend that was

Friday was a take it easy at home evening, we watched Monsters University. It was much better than the trailed had lead us to think it would be. Saturday was my birthday. I'm now in my last year of 20s 0_o. The day started early, I woke up starving at 06:30. So I had a small breakfast of cereal, but about 09:00ish we headed off to O'ways for breakfast. O'ways is probably my favourite place...it's a pity they don't do dinner, otherwise we'd probably go there a lot more often.

For lunch our friend L made mmmmmpie - it's a cheese and mushroom pie - and roast potatoes. Desert was this most amazing baked chocolate, ginger and raspberry cheesecake...all of it got demolished. I tell you having your friend making her dishes that you love just for your birthday means somewhere you've manged to do the friend thing right.

Post lunch we played board games...so it was a pretty good afternoon. Which we then topped off with sushi buffet for dinner with other friends. It was all kinds of awesome. And it was made better by my presents.

I got most spoilt with my presents. Jerall got me book three of the Mouse Guard series, and issue one of Sandman Overture. A friend gave me great bath stuff, another gave me vouchers for Exclusive Books - which I've already turned into two books :). Another gave me a Musica voucher - still to be spent. And one gave me Takealot voucher - already turned into a book and replacement copy of Love Actually [the one Jerall got me years ago broke :(]. I've also been told that another friend has a prezzie for me when we see her. See much spoilage, and the best part is it was all things for me...not baby related at all.

Yesterday there was gaming, getting books and taking it easy. How was your weekend?

Rambling update

At least not quite as many months have passed this time since my last post. I might just be getting slightly better at this ;) We're nearing the end of the baking a little person process - I at 34 weeks. However, my placenta is calcifying, and we're not going to make it to the edd of 25th Feb. Fortunately, yesterday's doctor visit had good news, we might just make 37 weeks :). This has meant that we needed to speed up our get things ready for K plan, and both our bags are packed. The rest of the things though aren't quite as sorted. We still don't have the cot here 0_o

On the non baby front I don't have much to say really. Probably because right now K is probably our number one talking point. It is the day before my birthday...I'll be 29 0_o. Last year of my 20s. Although tomorrow does mark a year of keeping a pot plant alive, woo hoo. It's been hit and miss at some moments, but the chili plant is alive. I'll get a picture of it up at some point.

Right, not much else besides the usual pre birthday emo. Which has passed so yay for that. Have a good weekend folks. Oh, also happy 2014 :0

Ps. Not quite as rambling as I though this would be.
