Fun times!

I'm just loving this week!

First of all, this little chica turned three yesterday!  What an incredible blessing to have her in our lives.  Our day was filled with early-morning birthday bands; prezzies in bed; Dora cake-eating with friends; and uber serious Lego-building when Brother J went off to bed - a pretty successful birthday, I'd say.



After a seriously hot and dry summer, we also had 100 mm of rain within an hour yesterday - yikes!  The entire town came to a standstill as cars, buildings and streets were flooded in the blink of an eye (read more about it here).  Of course this all happened right when we were supposed to leave for our weekly time trial, but I didn't even mind missing the run.  The coolness and the rain was amazing!


Our private little fishing spot backyard during the storm.

And last, but not least, our annual family holiday at the sea starts in less than a week - HOO-RAY!  Since neither me, nor Will really had a break over the festive season, we're both pretty much pooped by now - I'm literally counting the sleeps.  

I also absolutely cannot wait to properly introduce this little water beetle to the sea - he's going to LOVE it!  (J was 11 weeks old during our previous trip to the sea, so this will be his first real holiday at the beach.  Wooooot!)  


I have some pretty cool holiday runs lined up too, and something really big and exciting to come home to after our holiday...  I'll keep you posted!

  2. Happy 3rd birthday!!! I saw Kimberley had a huge storm and wondered if you would post about it. I did my army basic training in Kimberley back in 1984. I haven't been there since. Enjoy the holiday!

    1. Thanks very much, Johann!

      Things are mostly back to normal after the storm, although some people sadly did have a lot of damage to their houses and property. Yikes, you must have had a really HOT basic training experience here in Kby...??
