Family Update - Long Overdue

I guess it is time for some family update here...

With the holidays having been such a long one, due to the World Cup Soccer 2010 and the fact that I had to work. Our girls spent time between the 2 sets of grandparents.

The 1st two weeks they spent it with Murray's folks. I took one week off to spend some time with them and have some fun. Last two weeks with my folks.

In-between all that, Amy had to have 2 of her bottom front teeth removed, so as to allow more space for the permanent teeth that were growing behind those. For obvious reasons she had it done in theatre, as they thought it would have been far to scary for her at that age to have them down in the chair. She was a brave girl, and healed up very nicely after that. Hopefully, it will reduce braces later in life, but perhaps not...

We got to go visit Jacqui in Pietermaritzburg for tea and lunch, it was great catching up with her again, and the girls loved playing with her 2 sweet girls. Chloe, decided the piano was her fav thing there, could not get her off it...maybe, just maybe we might have a pianonist in the family.

Murray and I got to have a nice evening out with some good friends and we decided to be adventurous and headed out to a new Nightclub called Sasha's...it was good to get on that dance floor and dance the night away, have not done that in ages...

I finally got to taste my very 1st STARBUCKS coffee with Murray and I can say, it did not disappoint...

Then to wrap the last day of the 2010 World Cup Soccer, Felicity and I headed down to the beach front with the girls for a fun day spent amongst crowds and fans...the vibe down there was electrifying to say the least. Sad to think it is now all over...

Kids went back to school today, so it was quiet welcoming to get back to a normal routine...

Had my weekly weigh in today and lost another 1kg, now only 2.4 away from reaching my goal weight, super pleased with myself...hard work will come when I need to maintain, oh well, that will be for another day!


  1. Lovely long post Sophia! You are looking great - well done on the weight loss.

    Those girls of yours are growing up so quickly - cannot believe how big Chloe is!

    Lovely pics!

  2. Nice to read the update... glad your holiday time was fun too.

    Beware of that budding piano thing... that's how we started too... and now we are both doing lessons!

  3. Sounds like you guys have had a great time over the last few weeks!!! congrats on the weight loss front... leave keeping it off to be future Sophia's problem ;-)

  4. Sounds like you had a lot of fun. Normal are just going to be so boring after all the excitement of the world cup.
