During the holidays I've been browsing their site www.yuppiechef.co.za and a few days ago I finally made my choice!
A digital scale,
a garlic wheel - for Grant's fresh garlic,
a set of "poach pouches" - because the girls love poached eggs but I don't have a poacher
and a silicone mini muffin tray!
So now I am officially a Yuppiechef!!! And the best part is, I didn't spend all of my voucher so I can order again!!! Thanks to all at Yuppichef for wonderful service!

She had moved away from the "boys haircut" to "something that will suit me" but she was adamant that she didn't want to have to tie it up for school. So in the end she had a sweet bob with a fringe which she has never had before.
Here are some before, during and after pictures - top left to bottom right:
I think she looks very cute! I've always steered away from a fringe because it's always such a mission to grow it out but it looks really sweet and makes her look quite different.
Niave also ended up having a cut, actually half a cut as she decided three-quarters of the way through that "that's enough"! But fortunately it looked fine!! It definitely beat her last visit when she screamed blue murder from beginning to end! This time she sat in the hair washing chair like a seasoned pro and co-operated pretty well till the last 5 minutes.
We weren't allowed to brush it afterwards so her "after" picture is a bit of a mess but it's clean and cut at least!!

The girls were given lovely gifts from lots of people but 1 very special gift they each received were these quilts, handmade by my mom.
Definitely a labour of love!
In between Christmas and New Year we did a bit of this and a bit of that, visiting friends and family, watching movies etc. etc.
On Wednesday we went to a birthday party at Camps Bay beach. I have probably been to Camps Bay beach twice in my life - including this time. It's never been on my list of beaches to go to but it was really nice and the kids had a wonderful time. They both look a little glum in this picture but they were having a good time - I promise!!!
Niave collected so many muscle shells in her net that it began to bend!!!
Since before Christmas I had been battling with a sore throat and finally on Wednesday I went to the doctor after having a few horrible nights and tired days! He gave me an antibiotic but I was still feeling a bit mis on Thursday which was New Years Eve. My mom offered to have the girls sleep over there and let me have an undisturbed nights sleep so Grant and I were asleep before 10pm!! I woke momentarily at about 4 minutes past 12 to some crackers and voices in the distance and that was about it!! Happy New Year!!!
