BABBELAS

Tee hee, which is slang for HANGOVER here in South Africa. LOL. In true Scorpio fashion I partayed the entire weekend. Friday afternoon my friend Lilla phoned and invited me to a quick pub lunch. BWAHAHAHAHA - quick???? You have got to be joking. We had prego rolls and chips and then the owner of the estaurant found out that I was having abelated birthday party and the 1920 came out. I don't know if it's a brandy or what, but that stuff is beyond dangerous. You have it with espresso and after that we sort of forgot to go home and eventually the guys joined us and we ended up having supper and more drinks there.

Then on Saturday it was the big celebration and we all went to the tennis club early to set up. I'll tell you there's nothing worse than trying to set up tables and chairs when you have an entire marching band playing in your head. The kettle drum section was extra loud. We hired a spit and had the butcher do a sosatie spit, which is deboned chunks of meat and with that we did baby potatoes, onions and marvelous little breads that get done in a clay pot. With the party being held at the tennis club it wasn't long before some of the animals decided to play silly buggers on the tennis court and it got quite hillarious with the guys trying to play tennis to the beat of the music. We eventually got home at about 4 am and yesterday I slept late and acted like a total vegetable.

Katia, Jamie and Jayden have gone to Illovo for a week. Illovo is a coastal down south from Durban and she says the weather is marvelous. They've been gone 3 days and I'm missing them like crazy and can't wait for them to get back on Saturday and to download their photos. Hopefully I get some precious photos of Jayden to scrap. We bought her the cutest little bikini and we're lucky that she loves the water. Katia says they spend each morning in the pool.

As usual my hectic weekend has made me late with my freebies, but here's the fixed QP



And here's a cluster element I made with some goodies from Kim B's CU grab bags.
