Goodness this little boy that was dragged to his death by hi-jackers are upsetting. As you guys know, I have some runner friends that live in Reigerpark and they are absolutely devastated by this event. I so wish I can help them, so to show them support I’ll be wearing black on Friday. The worst is that rumour has it that one of the hi-jackers were known to the family.
How the hell can somebody lay claim to 60 farms. How is that going to help the economy? Track records show that farms that are claimed back will just go to waste and then we have 60 farms less to produce food. How do these people think – don’t they realise when we have a shortage of food that the poorest of the poor will be the ones that suffer most – the very same people that vote for them every time. Do they care so little about the people. And when do you have enough money, do you really need 60 farms or is it plan greed or vengefulness (is that a word, it is now!)? Are you really going to share with the poor downtrodden masses? Hmmm I think not.
Ohh dear, a girl that was at school with me has been diagnosed with breast cancer – she is going for a double mastectomy and reconstruction today. Terrible but luckily she won’t need any extra treatment after this.
My mom got a tattoo – WTH – huh – she is 64!! What was she thinking? And not even something significant – just a little flower with little curly things around. Now I ask you how will I be able to tell Zoe no when she asks for a tattoo – her grandmother has one. Grrr
I had one of those Baby Love dolls when I was small. The doll is as big as a 6 month old baby. About 3 weeks ago Zoe asked for a baby doll and I realised that for some strange reason this doll is still floating around – at this stage she was in the flat at the coast. SO I asked my mom to bring the doll back. Yesterday we went and bought the doll clothes at Pep and some nappies and now Zoe is in heaven. She has been playing with this doll non-stop. I’m actually amazed that the doll is still in such a good condition. And we saved a bucket full of money because these new baby dolls are really expensive and the clothes as well and the dolls are too small for baby clothes.
So yesterday the big boss told somebody else in the company that all retrenchments are off. Now I just want to ask: “Won’t it be nice to actually tell that to the people that were told that they are being retrenched?” Goodness gracious – this borders on emotional abuse!
Strikes are still on – shots were fired about 500m’s from my office this morning and yesterday an old guy were abducted from the factory he was working in.
And then I had a family dinner on Sunday night to celebrate my mom’s birthday – enough said. Never good for my soul, self esteem or anything else for that matter. So still working through that to get myself back on an even keel.
What do you think is the job of a role model? By now choice of my own, I’ve now turned into a role model for an 18 year old. She is part of the running crowd and she just thinks that I’m the best thing since sliced bread. I really don’t think that I’m the ideal role model for such a young girl but she just want to do everything with her “tannie”! Yes I’m Tannie and Hubby is Oom – doesn’t make me feel old at all!
Have a wonderful day!
