So far this week ....

I'm still enjoying my leave although I don't have a lot time to relax.  My maid had a hysterectomy on Monday which means  that I'll have to do the housework myself!!!  The garden is getting along - slowly but surely.  Not quite ready to share photos at this stage. 

I haven't done any scrapping so far this week but I have a page that I finished last week to share.


Marco had a rugby week in Potchefstroom this week - at my old primary school!  Yesterday we went to watch him play.  I walked through the school.  What a trip down memory lane that was!!!!!!

Marco's team went through to the finals but lost the game (which they played in pouring rain!) in the end.  They did get a trophy for second place though.


After rugby we went to see The Book of Eli.  If was Michaels choice and I didn't really want to see it, but I don't regret that we did.  Not the best movie ever made, but the story was good.  I little bit too gruesome for my liking.

During my gardening -"research", I found a picture of this beautiful rose called "My Granny". 
I fell in love with it and went on a mission to find it.  I was sure that it would  be difficult to get hold of as it always is when I want something specific like that.  Big was my surprise when I found it at the first nursery that I asked for it!  I am now the proud owner of two of these lovely rose bushes. Can't wait to get them into pots!  I'm going to that right now!

Such a pretty LO and attention to detail.

My Granny is my favourite rose! Another fav is South Africa - so so pretty and flowers abundantly.
