Political Party

On Sunday night my friend Richard hosted a ‘Political Party’. Funny theme you are probably thinking, but we had so much fun!

We were asked to dress as any SA politician, which becomes rather difficult as you can imagine. But non-the-less, we tried!

Bryan (my boyfriend) decided that he needed to go as Rev. Meshu from the ACDP. Now you have to understand that he has an afro and of course is another skin colour!! 🙂 so I bought him an afro and he wore my BIG cross necklace. Rather strange site! 😛

So when I was deciding what in the world I could possibly wear, I thought maybe I shouldn’t support any party and go neutral. So luckily i found this shirt that said “One Nation” with an African outline. I thought that was good enough. I even thought of teasing my hair to make it look like an Afro, but decided against it… (i mean how stupid would I have looked) 🙂

I must say that if there was an award for the most creative costume it would have to be a tie between Lee and Richard. You know when ever Jacob Zuma is portrayed in a cartoon, they draw a shower head above him…well Richard decided he needed to do the same…

HA HA HA!!!!!

The girls sat and chatted… like normal. We all needed to catch up. Since some of us are still studying while others are working, when we are all together we have so much to catch up on that we need some quality time to catch up!

All in all, it was an awesome evening…thanks Richie! Unfortunately I can’t post all the pics… I wish i could! 🙂
There was a mixture of political ‘faces’ and supporters… a great portrayal of the country 🙂
I have to say tho…next time, Richard, please choose an ‘easier’ theme…

Unconditional love

My girlie

My girlie

My dog, Jackie, is one of my loves in life! ‘my girlie’ as she is nick-named has my companion and love through alot in my life… I mean I wish everyone was as bouncy to see me like she is when I come home! 🙂
Something a dog does give you is unconditional love, and between her and my white lab, Robbie, I am very spoilt!

I wonder how anyone can live without a dog!
This post came to mind when I was thinking about the move ‘Marlie and me’, it is a MUST watch if you own any dog! I happen to have a lab which gave us as much grief as the lab in the movie! I think that animals form a very special connection to us and the fact that they live through (and put up with) all our tears and laughter, they definately form a major part of our lives.

I just decided to write something about my dogs, and I’ll most probably keep writing something about them as they are a HUGE part of my day.

I’m sure when I get home today, I’ll be recieving a big slobbery kiss from Robbie on my elbow (his usual spot) and a howling Jackie (she gets so excited that she can’t control herself

… just what I need to end a work day
