Last night a group of us - Myself & Chris, John & Michelle, Michelle and Brendan, Charmaine and Branden too (and then later we were joined by Danie & Inada) - went out on a nights out - yes folks with lipstick, perfume and high heels !!!!! All the kiddies were sleeping at their grannies and grandpa's and we had the night to our selves.

We started the evening at PRIMI PIATTI - I think that this is the BEST restaurant ever. It has the best food, the staff is amazing - they have this fun, funky slightly cocky attitude that is all about fun & excellent service. We started the evening off with a round of cocktails - I of course could not start the evening with out my frozen Margarita ... MMMMMMMMMM This drink I'm my humble opinion is the MOST delicious drink ever made. The problem was that this was only the beginning ... as the evening progressed we got louder and the drink list got longer - Jagga Bombs ( Jaggermeister mixed with Red Bull), Suitcases ( Shot of Jack Daniels held in the mouth followed by a shot of passion fruit, shaken in the mouth and swallowed - like a slice of heaven!!!)

The evening ended with us all laying on the body outline in the middle of the restaurant, trying to see who was the most convincing corpse - I think that I made a dramatic and good looking corpse - what say you??
Wanda (the Incredible waiter) stated then that the evening would not be a resounding complete success without a zip down the fire pole - all the girls copped out, but I had to give it ago ... I was terrified I thought that I would drop to the floor like a stone and at the very least break a heel. But I did it any way and all I can say is YEAH HA!!! It was a blast.
Then we were off to Joe Cools for some dancing ... I haven't had such a great time in forever, thanks guys for the fantastic night - my cheeks and face are still a little tender from all the laughing!!

Special mention must be made to John who took it upone himself to relieve me of my usual designator driver duties and he was as good as his word .. THANK YOU John for my night off - your name is now officially JOHN-A-LUSCIOUS.

Guys I think that we should do this every second month !!!

On the 4th it is Chris's 35 birthday, so we are having a littly party to celebrate ... just wanted you to see the invite that I did for him ... i think that it is really fun plus i think that he looks really devilish inbetween Holly, Kendra and Bridgitte, dont you ????

Miguel looks like he is on the mend and went to school today for the first time in over 2 weeks. He came home happy but very tired ...

i forgot to tell you what he said when last week when i had to take him back to the hospital last week when I could not get his fever down the one afternoon. I took him to Parklands hospital, the same hospital that he stayed in for the 4 days the previous week, in the peadiatric ward they have a tiny court yard with astro turf and a jungle gym for the kids to play on - Miguels most favourite thing in the world is golf followed by your guessed it - Jungle Gyms. He askes me on entering the hospital if he was allowed to go to the jungle gym later when his head felt better. I told him that he could'nt as we were going to emergency and that you could only play on the JG if you were VERY sick and had to sleep at the hospital. About 20 minutes later when the ER doctor was examining him, he asks Miguel if he was feeling very sick? To which Miguel instantly relpies .. "YES!! Im very sick, i think that i might even be dead - so i think that i should sleep here!!" Cheeky monkey!!

{AT LAST ...}

At last i have a few minutes to sit and think ... Last week we had to rush Miguel to the Hospital on Sunday morning, as on Sat night he was running a constant fever of 40 deg Celsius all night, they diagnosed him hospital with a serious bacterial throat infection. We were there for 4 days so that meant 5 days of 40+ degree Celsius fevers. On Wednesday they said that we could go home and I thought that he was better this week, but no such luck its back.

He stared with the fevers again on Sunday night, the Doctor at the hospital confirmed of Wednesday that it was back ... looks like the only way we are going to get rid of it is to remove his tonsils ... and now it looks like he is developing a nasty sinus infection on top of everything, this evening on top of his fever he was choking and throwing up. Oh my poor little angel, he really is having a tough time of it ...
I had to post this to remind you all of that smiling face and cheeky grin ... I could just eat him up at times.

but he did have one good day though ... on Friday Chris managed to get home in the early afternoon, so because Miguel was feeling better we said that he could have a treat - the first thing that came out his mouth was - GOLF. Golf is his obsession, he cant get enough of it. So we took him to play mashie at EMBERTON GOLF CENTRE.

It is such a lovely course and perfect for Miguel. He played such a great game and had some real hum-dinger of shots, getting some great lift and length on a few of his shots. The putting is still some thing he is too impatient with - I think that when it comes to putting he is under the impression that you play it the same way you would an action filled game of hockey, but hell the boy is only 3!!! After finishing the 9 holes with dad, off they went to the driving range and hit a bucket of balls between them (about 40 each). Miguel thought that he had died and gone to heaven - playing 3 hours of golf AND spending a weekday afternoon with dad.

I wanted to give shout out to our friend Alan and Lisa who had the following exciting news .. Squishie was born at Parklands Hospital on 19 September 2007 @ 13h50, weighing in at 3.48kg's and is 53cm in length. Squishie (his name for the last 9 months) is now officially named... Corban Spies

Welcome to the night shift guys! The hours are lousy, but the benefits are great! Congratulations on Your New Baby. A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longerbankroll smaller, clothes shabbier,the past forgotten,and the future worth living for.So not all bad then?


the poem in the LO goes as follows:

Someday I'll jump through puddles,

Take a stroll or run a race.

Someday I'll walk across the street,

Or maybe walk in space,
Someday I'll scale a mountain,

Or I'll join a ballet corps.

Someday I'll walk a tightrope,

Or explore the ocean floor.
Someday these feet will do some things,

That only heaven knows,

But for today they're happyJust to wiggle all their toes
