12 Days till Xmas!

Post by riaan on Sun Dec 12, 2010 12:17 pm

Only 12 days till Christmas!



I am hoping that all of our friends here will have a wonderful Christmas time with friends and family... this Christmas and New Year.

I have just finished 3 weeks of weekly parent Teachers' events at school and it all ended with our children's Christmas show. Mostly I want to celebrate the fact that it is over. It had also not gone too badly! 3 Weeks of worry and stress putting the events together with all the preparation of props and music and planning along with the additional lead up to the events... the first two weeks' events were speeches that needed to be prepared and practiced with the students. But it is all over and now for a bit of catching up on all the regular work that has fallen on the wayside!

We have also been working at improving and making our new weekend house livable and ready to be moved into. We have been painting and cleaning and looking for furniture and waiting for deliveries and painting some more every weekend for the past 3 or so weekend as well. This at least was exciting and stimulating! The house is still in a little bit of a state but will hopefully be inhabitable after next weekend. We still have no hot water installed and/or gas connected. The installation that was due to be done this weekend did not happen and we'll have to wait until next weekend. I can absolutely not wait to share pics with you guys... as soon as it is all done. The house is in the countryside and it is so incredibly quiet that one wants to whisper when you walk outside... not to disturb the quiet. Birdsong everywhere...! Oh, and rice paddies...

What I am even more excited about is that I'll hopefully be able to make soap again! I cannot wait! We have also been looking for a sausage maker as we want to make Home made South African sausages.

With all of this going down I am wishing everybody else the most wonderful family holidays and an amazing and joyous time! I missed you all.



Love to you all and happy soaping holidays!

Hi Riaan,
Your new place is going to be just fantastic. I have been crazy busy selling soap, I have 6 batches to make in the morning and 1 more market on Wednesday and that is it for this year. I am taking a break until the week after New Years. I really need the break.
I wish you and your family and friends the very merriest Christmas and all the very best in the New Year.
Love N Hugs

Kellie I wish you the bestest of soaping fairies... and a great market on Wednesday...

We just came back home from a very busy weekend... we are pretty sore from working and climbing ladders and all kinds of stuff... the place is getting there... i Know it sounds like we've been at it for ages but we have only been working there really on Saturdays and Sundays... and we have been held up waiting for other major work to be done before we could really carry on with some stuff... after this weekend it really is starting to feel as if we are getting somewhere.... there is gas in the kitchen... hot water downstairs in the kitchen... hot water upstairs in the bathroom... we have put down decking on the third floor roof terrace... hung decoration... some railings for curtains... hung a new bathroom mirror and made and installed our own bathroom shelf under the mirror... well improved an ikea bath tray and two soap dishes into a shelf... so a lot of stuff done really... still much to be done though... I am excited as can be...

Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas... I miss all my old friends from everywhere sooo much...hoping that if everything is settled I'd have a chance to spend more time here with you too... I'd love to share it all with you as soon as it is finished...

love and hugs and a wonderful time with family and friends...
