Good day fellow bloggers!
Well it’s been some time since I have posted. I missed it a lot and there where so many times I had ideas and wanted to post, but then I got busy or just didn’t want to anymore.
Not much have changed in the last few months. I still love my job and enjoy it more every day.
And I still miss my dad like crazy, especially over the Christmas holidays. It has been seven months now since he is gone and everyday is still as bad as the first. The past few days have been a rollercoaster ride, with a lot of laughter and a lot of tears and sadness.
We had a family get together with my father’s brothers and his mother and the nephews and nieces, opened presents and baked cupcakes and went shopping. So it was fun and a very nice time. We also had some moments of tears where the longing of my dad got too much. He was, in my opinion, the live of the party. He used to be the one you would hear from the kitchen laughing outside. He was the one doing most of the braai work, keeping everyone happy and making you laugh. I really missed his laugh and being able to go to him and get a nice big hug from him. But at least 2 of the 4 “first” is over. Now it just my moms and my birthday in January that still lay ahead.
So, moving on to happier things. December was full of new and fun adventures. We went to a Dairy Farm and Farm Market, so much fun.
On Christmas Eve we opened presents at home and the 3 of us just had a nice quiet evening after going for a drive to look at the houses made up with Christmas lights. The Christmas lunch with the family was a lot of fun, especially when they started swimming, and we ate so much food I thought my tummy might burst.
I got this lovely cupcake stand from my mom and the cutes apron and it made me just wanna bake away! So I made cupcakes for the fun.
Me and sis hit the shops and watched the new Sherlock Holmes movie, which was real nice. Oh and me, mom and sis had tattoos done about a 2 weeks ago.
Just loving it!! I also had a second ear-piercing done and it is still a little sore, I think I might rather go for another tattoo that do a piercing again.
Here are some pics about the cupcakes.
I made some rainbow cupcakes, and some I just colored the batter with food coloring.
I had a vanilla muffin ready mix and baked it and decorated it.
I will put up the recipe later; I just need to perfect it a little more, the recipe I used came out a little dry and I like a cupcake to be moist.
We received a belated Christmas present.
His mum unfortunately passed away giving birth to him; he was the first and only puppy born, and very lucky to have survived. We named him Benji. He is now 5 days old now and just getting sweeter and cuter by the day. We have to feed him with a bottle and baby pup formula and make this cute noise when he gets hungry and the sweetest ever: he is ticklish.
So onto current time, Happy New Year!!!
I truly hope this year will be a good prosperous year and that all your dreams come true. For me, I just hope and wish that this year will be blessed with me and my family staying together. My greatest fear is losing my mom or sister too; I won’t be able to make it without them. They have been my rock these past few months, the only thing keeping me sane and together. I love them so much and would do anything for them. So here is to hoping that this year is going to have more happy moments and memories that sad ones and that we as a family will only grow stronger.
Lastly I just want to thank each and every one of you that read my blog, commented and inspired me to right again. A special thanks to those who gave me support and some guidance when I needed it the most. I love you all!
