Christmas Without You…

What is your Christmas song? The one that lets you know it’s undoubtedly Christmas time? Mine is Christmas Without You by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers… Yup – I’m a huge (ahem) Dolly Parton fan – albeit in the closet most of the year… But come Christmas time, I just cannot hide it anymore.

My sister’s Christmas song is Last Christmas by WHAM and we share Dolly and Kenny as well!

PS: Here’s the link if you can’t wait to get home and play it!

Johnny still has it!

Wow – Johnny Clegg concert was cool. Crowd was a bit subdued — very tally-ho, old chap (oldish, reserved audience) — but the scatterlings and free spirits couldn’t contain themselves once the ROCKING songs started.

Had loads of fun and happy to have seen JC in action. He may be 50-something but he can still kick those legs of his in the air like a young, virile Zulu warrior! Le Zoulou Blanc rocks! Check Thomas!

PS: We were not allowed to take photos of the band for some reason. Were threatened with legal action blahblah so that’s why I have no pics of JC. This being SA, people of course ignored the threats, but I was just happy to see him and not interested in legal action!


On a first name basis.

Thomas started calling DH by his first name last night. DH’s nose is a bit out of joint but a) I think it’s just a passing phase and if we don’t make a fuss it will pass quickly and 2) not b — I think it’s just beautiful — he’s been basking in the glow of being called Dada and Daddy for months now. I was promoted from ‘ee ee ee’ very recently and for the past month have been Mama! So I’m going to enjoy my Mama-ness and he can feel what it feels like to not be called Dada or Daddy!

The kiddie-free blogs!

Yikes… and here we thought we were having fun… Went trawling on the letterdash blogs. Peeeeeepholes — those boys and girls are having virtual sex just about… Some dirty, sexy juicy things happening there. Who needs the playboy bunnies and their dirty old man? Either that or I need to get a life and have more sex… I blushed and blushed!
