The first day went well, no changed occurred and life continued as usual. The girl was her normal self, smiling, laughing thinking rationally and all seemed to be going well. At about day 5 things started to go pear shaped as the girl started feeling irrational emotions and temper flared its ugly head time and time again…
By day 7 a haggard, unkempt creature loped into the kitchen, stared around with red blood shot eyes at the world beyond her tiled domain. The gleam of the assortment of available weapons called to her (aren’t kitchens dangerous? damn!) and she contemplated the assault on all and sundry who walked within her earshot (It was the wife…in the kitchen…with the carving knife)
It was at this point that this dark and dangerous creature realised that her transformation had taken on the sinister form of a small. White. Pill.
That night at church as she ranted before God asking him why she felt so awful, she realised with full clarity that the Melodine Pill was altering her personality and yes,...even possibly her genetic make-up. She had to do away with the drug, she had to do the unpopular option and get a Mirena Device fitted. From the moment of her deciding she felt the darkness lift from her mind and soul, her husband looked on in shocked surprise as she started, falteringly, to laugh again.
Well, today is the first day of my pill-less existence. Bring on the Mirena.

This is my binkyboo with her mommies glasses on...I laughed so hard i cried!
This is my husband Francis and baby Sav having an afternoon nap... I love them so very much. Sav looks so much like her daddy.
A close-up of the famous shoes. Too cute!!
We had an awesome weekend, it was a four day weekend and we saw people we loved on each of the four days!
On Friday morning we rushed up to the midlands for the weddng rehearsal, on the way we bought a cheese pie and a coke to share. We ended up having brunch with Ry and Cris (Big thanks to Ry for helping us carry our stuff! Good job Roady...you're doing a great job mate) we had scones and waffles yum....
Saturday we had an easy day, we went couch shopping and then headed up to the wedding, it was a stunning one! We had great company at our table and spent the night eating good food and laughing with special friends - big love to lee, mark and the super cool okes at table 5!
Sunday we slept in (I tried but had a headache and a stroppy baba) and then we set about doing as little as possible... that is until 9am when we shot off to waterfall for our annual family breakfast... more eating laughing and good company ;) Word up to Guy, Claire and the gorgeous people at our end of the tuin... My husband and i did a sing-song for everyone and we ate the best breakfast ever... we only left at 1:30 and even though we were exhausted we still drove around looking at houses on show. We saw two nice properties and it left us dreaming and redesigning all afternoon...sigh. oh well.
We decided to take the night off because we had had such a busy weekend - so we had prpoer family time ie. Francis sanded sown the porch gables and varnished them... varnished the dog kennel, his shirt, the porch and his only nice pair of pants. While I watched series and spent time with my child.
We then decided to have a braai - gas braai - and had chicken, boerie, a huge stuffed butterbut, chips and home made chocolate icecream! It was the first time all long weekend that we actually just did normal family stuff - it was nice :)
Monday (today) we lay in again and then spent the day taking it easy, we sat like little monkeys playing wit Google Earth and saw everything from our home to the place in Madrid where I stayed in 99.
The Swans popped in to bring me a stunning formula stacked-cup system and they stayed for a while, our home looks like a bomb's hit it but I AM ON HOLIDAY.
Right now I am relaxing on the couch, Franc is at his mom's visiting. Sav is sleeping on my lap and we are going to have grilled chicken and rolls for dinner.
hope you all had a blessed Easter - Our challenge to you all this year is this :
Don't wait for traditional festivals to remember what God has done for us everyday.
