yes yes yes, I realise that it is already Wednesday and that you, Angel and Glug have already posted about Sunday, but things have been a bit hectic this week. So today i finally found a couple of minutes to do my part.
To start off with I’d like to thank you for inviting us to the combined birthday picnic. I had a lot of fun. AK and I started off our adventure by driving around the Linden/Emerentia area for quite some time before I finally realised that I knew exactly where the place was and that I’ve driven past it a thousand times before….but you have to forgive me for this as I’m not from Joburg🙂 We then proceeded to drive around the emerentia dam…..twice, before we decided which entrance to take. This was due to a number of reasons, one of which was the fact that I was trying my best to convince AK that your e-mail definitely said Emerentia Dam Botanical Gardens.
By the time we got inside, AK was dying for a smoke, as she’s not allowed to smoke in my car…..so we sat down in the Tranquility garden where she had her smoke and I got to spend some much needed time on my phone. At 1 o’clock I texted you to find out where you guys were, but you hadn’t yet arrived, so we sat around a while longer. When you finally did arrive, you sent me a message explaining where you were, but since neither of us really knew the Gardens, we spent quite some time strolling around trying our best to take a good look at the people around us, convinced that we’ll be able to find you guys by looking for Angel’s hair:)
In the end you phoned me and explained exactly where you were. And then it was time for the big meet. The picnic was fabulous, the friends i did get to meet were very interesting, meeting Angel and Glug in person was awesome and of course meeting you and the hubby was a pleasure. Angel and Glugs were of course accompanied by Angel’s knucklehead, Damien. What a delightful teenager. Yes, and I realised that I used delightful and teenager in the same sentence, but as 17 year olds go, he was quite remarkable. And I know that this has been mentioned before, but I have to mention it again, I loved the Hah! game, mostly because I was one of the winners, but also because it was fun…he he:)
It was a pity you couldn’t join us at Cool Runnings, where we had the pleasure of a very brief meeting with Exmi before she had to rush off to fetch the kidlet. We ended up staying at Cool Runnings for a bite to eat and some divine cocktails.
I had an amazing day and I look forward to spending some more time with you guys. I’m so glad that you and the hubby enjoyed your joint gift:) So how did you like the little button??? and what did hubby have to say about that??
Have a fab week sweety pie!
P.S. That’s your second letter you lucky cow! tee hee hee🙂
