They got it wrong

All the weather forecasters who predicted that this weekend was going to be cold and miserable in Cape Town … in your eye!!

It’s the most beeooooootyful day in the Mother City =)

I stopped to take this snapshot of the back of Table Mountain and Devil’s Peak just now on my way back from dropping off last night’s movies.

Man, I just love living here!

One of the movies we watched was Death Proof. Have you seen it? It’s a Tarantino creation … LOVED IT!!

IMO, it’s the ultimate chick flick =) Not to deliberately put a spoiler out there or anything, but if you’ve ever harboured a secret desire to beat the crap out of some A-hole, then this one’s for you.

Anyways, I’m off again … have to take Son#1 out to get new school shoes. I may just pop into Look & Listen while I’m out and see if there are any new tunes out worth buying.

Later everyone xxx


Update: Thankfully Look & Listen were NOT playing Usher’s Here I Stand album today!!

Got some Tool, Disturbed, Peter Tosh and a pressie for my Dad =)

Weekend freeze, flames and cricket

The various weather forecasts I’ve had a look at all differ in the exact expected temperatures for the next couple of days, but they all agree on one thing – its going to be #&%^ cold!!

So I’m gonna be camped out right here, in front of the fire …

Doesn’t that look lovely?

Ok, so just *try* to imagine that the camera on my new little phone DOESN’T completely suck hehe …

I have a couple of DVDs to watch tonight – Juno and Jumper. I’ve heard that Juno is excellent, so I’m looking forward to that.

Tomorrow have a bit of coding to do, so that’ll keep my in front of my computer for a few hours and then I also have some papers to shuffle and accounts to sort out. Urgh, admin blows.

Apart from that, there’s cricket on YAAAY! It’s a 5 day test with South Africa vs England from Lords. We aren’t doing too well after wining the toss and electing to field first – England declared on 593/8 at the end of day 2 – but hopefully tomorrow will see us get off to a solid batting start so we can pile on the runs *fingers crossed*. We are REALLY going to have to bat a whole lot better than we bowled!! I have a sneaky suspicion that it may all end in a draw.

Oh, just by the by … I was trying to keep an eye on the match today while working, and it proved to be rather tiring and annoying having to jump up and check the action out on tv every few minutes, so I found a much better way of tracking the score. Online. This, after I asked if anyone knew of a good website that churned out live scores and was promptly reprimanded by SheBee and told to JFGI!! wahaha!! So I did =)

If you also want to track the cricket online, here’s the site I found. It’s pretty good, not too far behind the live action and the running commentary is quite entertaining too:

“Steyn to Sidebottom, no run, hah! Sidebottom has had enough of being peppered by Steyn and tries to swat a bouncer but only takes his eyes off the ball and misses, which has Steyn amused”

“Harris to Broad, OUT, timber! Broad goes for a meaty whip across the line, rather ugly, looking to work a full and flat delivery to midwicket but the ball turns ever so slightly and disturbs the furniture”

And then, sometime over the next 2 days, I’ll have to cut Son#1’s hair for school (he won’t let anyone else cut it) and psyche myself up for The Dreaded Weekly Grocery Shop … hoo boy!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Bits ‘n pieces

I’ve decided not to go to gym today. I’m still behind on work and I can’t really afford to give up those 2 hours, not right now. Jeesh, all those public holidays and being sick have seriously wrecked things. I may try and get some light cardio in on the weekend, just spend 20 or 30 minutes walking on the treadmill or something, but the weather forecast is very bleak for the next couple of days and it may not be clever for me to venture out into the cold, get all hot and sweaty and then cold again, not until I’m 100% healthy … dunno. I may just dash out to buy some wood and get the fire going soon. Winter is definitely here! Time for lots of reading, movies, knitting, and snuggling of course =)

Heard a couple of rumours:

And here’s a fun website! Check it out.

Mmk, so I can’t stick around for much longer now, have to get some work killed before the kids get home from school. I’ll be back …
