Who Are You When No One Is Watching?

I get up to some pretty interesting things when no one is watching.  My favourite being peeing in a bucket. My bathroom is just across my room but the whole task of getting out of bed, opening the door, walking to the toilet sitting myself down…too much work so I just place my bucket in my room and pee from there.  It’s fine, judge me all you like, my secret is out!  I bet a handful of other people do this, I can’t possibly be alone on this one but thanks to social media most won’t admit to it and that’s just how social media is slowly but surely stopping us from being our true selves.

Under Pressure (insert Queen audio track here)

I love me some golden oldies and that track just reminded me just how much social media can put you under necessary pressure. Have you seen how gorgeous people look online?  Every other day they are wearing top of the range clothes, shoes, hair and makeup and the rest of us mere mortals are looking like we walked right out of a corn field!  A few years back it really used to bother me.  I couldn’t even imagine posting a photograph on Instagram wearing the same outfit I once posted weeks ago, that right there was taboo!  Now that I’m all grown up I can safely say I post whichever picture I want to and that’s not even every other day anymore because data is expensive, I have other things to do with my money.

Love Lives

I used to be very anti love.  After putting myself through unnecessary pain in relationships I didn’t have to be in I concluded that love was a farce. However, I have social media to thank for changing my perspective.  Friends I follow on different social media platforms celebrate love in so many ways it’s beautiful to watch.  The engagements, dates, adventures, marriages, the happiness that doesn’t stop popping up every other day assures me that there’s still hope for me and everyone else who is waiting on their love story.

Cyber Bullying Is Real

Once upon a time I could tweet whatever I liked until I got dragged for sharing my opinions.  Nope, definitely not revisiting that part of social media anytime soon.  That experience taught me to keep parts of my thoughts to myself because you never know who is waiting to pounce on you.  I don’t even have clever ‘come backs” or the energy to fight anyone online.  I can safely say social media has taught me to choose my words wisely!  Just not on my blog though, here I write what I like.

Take Time To Switch Off

If you aren’t careful you can spend the entire day on social media platforms and not get anything productive done AT ALL.  I take time out to enjoy my life offline and come back feeling more refreshed than ever.  Trust me, you need it for your own sanity.

So who really am I when no one is watching?  To be honest, I stay consistent, what you see online is exactly what you see offline.

I love my daughter, I love to run, I love to blog, I love to drink;vodka being my drink of choice and I love life!

How has social media impacted you both positively and negatively?

Her Throbbing Confession

Going celibate was voluntary but sex had been on her mind for the longest time.  You would think after a this much time her pussy would know better, no sex was coming and that was that.  Gosh it had really been 3 months, 3 months of ignoring her natural desires and complaining about it to her friend every single waking moment.  It’s not that she couldn’t get laid, there’s always someone a text message away who could easily quench her thirst; what she wanted was not just dick but some quality dick that would leave her deeply satisfied.  It was a Wednesday evening and Janice had just arrived at her friends apartment for a drink up.  If she wasn’t getting laid at least she was going to enjoy a night with her friend Sharon and stop thinking about when her pussy was going to get screwed so hard she wouldn’t remember her name…

My Throbbing Confessions MaKupsy.jpg

“Sorry babes I have a date with Nate so I won’t be able to come through on time, I had totally forgotten about it but make yourself at home.  Will catch up soon as I’m home.  I’ll make up for it.*winks*”

Well isn’t that a bummer!  I really wanted to complain some more about how I need to get laid, so much for that, at least one of us is getting some.

Janice quickly unlocked the door to her friends apartment and headed straight to her lounge.  She plopped herself into her favourite bean bag, that was the coolest spot in the entire place and she loved it there.  Straight to business she unpacked a bottle of wine from her shopping bag, uncorked it and poured in half a glass and enjoyed the first sip like she had never ever had wine her entire life!  She switched on the TV and selected the audio channel and started to undress.  The one thing she absolutely loved about Sharon’s place was just how big the place was, so much space to go about naked.  She wasn’t feeling hungry but had bought a few snacks so those would have to do for later.  She headed straight to the bathroom and enjoyed a refreshing hot shower, by the time she was done her wine had chilled to just the temperature she liked.

She was either just beyond horny or having wine on a not so full stomach had her already feeling tipsy but either way she loved the way her bathrobe was feeling rubbing against her nipples.  She poured herself another glass of wine and the next song on the playlist didn’t help matters,

“Let me lick you up and down till you say stop”

Silk really was all about sex in that song!  Janice started thinking about sex all over again.  That last encounter with Sharon really left her pussy throbbing.  I mean, who goes around giving her friend such erotic body rubs.  Janice had complained about feeling fatigue and the next thing Sharon was helping her undress and rubbing down the pain.  She had seen her naked countless times before but on this day her soft, perfectly shaped body pressed against her highly sensitive skin was making her feel things that were clearly new to her so she had to ask her to stop.  Sharon took offence because she genuinely wanted to help with a massage of sort but Janice knew this was probably a very bad idea.  Now that she was thinking about it all over again Janice couldn’t help but feel a warm tingly sensation between her thighs, her nipples were rock hard by now, she gently brushed them with her forefinger and took in a deep breathe; she clearly needed another glass of wine!

We’re home!  Sharon barged in and interrupted Janice’s thoughts.  Janice quickly got up and tied up her bathrobe and gave her friend a warm welcoming hug.  Sharon had obviously had one three many and was giggling and speaking too loudly.  Janice headed to close the door but Sharon told her they had company, Nate was sleeping over.

How wonderful, Janice thought, now I won’t get a chance to catch up and these two are probably going to have sex and this is going to leave me beyond the word frustrated!

Nate walked in, nothing to write home about.  Just a normal guy with a beautiful smile but that was just about it.  Warm greetings, random questions about everyday life and both Nate and Sharon were ready to hit the sheets.  It was nearly 10 pm, tomorrow was a working day anyway so rest was clearly needed.

Janice woke up to sex sounds from the next room.  She had to cover her ears to stop herself from asking the gods to swallow her whole!  Could her life get any worse?  I mean this was someone who was already sexually frustrated and now had to deal with a pair going at it like rabbits in the next room.  She could hear Sharon screaming all sorts of obscenity and she was clearly enjoying every second of it. A part of Janice wanted to go and knock and complain but the other part was feeling naughty so she hopped out of bed and tip toed to Sharon’s bedroom door and started to listen in.  She imagined all the things that Nate was probably doing to her friend.  He was probably giving her some pretty good tongue right about now, probably lifted her back and made sure she could feel every inch of his tongue slurping her pussy juices.

The sex noises were getting more and more real, Janice was caught between wanting to walk right in or going to her room and playing with her screaming pussy that was aching for some deep penetration.  She couldn’t believe just how horny she had gone in a space of seconds.  Her clit was as hard as a marble and all she could now picture was herself sitting on Nate’s face and having him eat her pussy up while Sharon was sucking on his dick and taking her time to touch it, tease, taste it, kiss it and then finally sliding it right into her very hot and wet pussy.  That first stroke…that first stroke is the most important stroke of all and it makes you feel like you’re walking on clouds, the pleasure that comes with the first stroke will make you realise just how good dick can leave you so fucking confused.

At that very thought, Sharon’s door was opened and Nate stood stark naked in front of accompanied by his very hard and very mouth-watering looking dick in front of her very eyes!

This Is Why You Are Not Happy

I used to have a lot of friends but with time we outgrew each other because of different milestones we all went through which is perfectly okay.  Now I think I have probably have four really close friends who I know I can call on whatever time of day and just catch up, vent or talk about how we can grow in all life aspects.  I hardly mention names when I write up my posts because when someone reads my blog they always know when I am writing about them and the same applies today.  Let me tell you about a conversation I once had with a once was good friend of mine.  Let’s call him D.

2017-Land-Rover-Discovery-Sport-exterior-red-color-front-view-headlights-and-grille.jpg

Image from Google

The one time we had gone out for coffee and we were catching up on life and all things random.  He asked me what I had planned for the weekend and frankly I had a whole list of things I wanted to do but I didn’t have the means.  I still remember what I told him.  I wanted to go for a long drive till I got to a place with a lake; park there and take in the sunset and calming surroundings.  After that I would probably take a dip because I love me some water and I always have a reason to swim.  That said, K said to me; “You realise you don’t need to wait on anyone to do this, you can do it on your own.”  I was like dude, are you mad?  How is that even possible you do know that I don’t have a car right?  He simply told me that he knew but that was all the more reason to start working towards buying my own car! Okay, that was a shocker but the shocker made me actually start looking at things differently.

You realise you don’t need to wait on anyone to do this, you can do it on your own.”  

I have a great example of how I made the first change.  I once joined a fitness group on Facebook that has been there for quite a while now.  I was excited to be part of a team that enjoyed fitness as much as I did but the downside was these guys only published posts for their regular members and so my runs and workouts were always pending.  I was gutted and told myself, self, you either have to suck it up and accept that this is how its done in this group or start your own group!  Of course I started my own group, are you mad, why subject myself to such misery?  It was the best decision that I ever made and it made me realise change can be just a click away!

We always have an excuse not to do something.  When you really look at it you are usually the one stopping yourself from achieving the majority of your goals.  Oh it’s too difficult, I don’t have what it takes, maybe if I had this, it’s because I went to this school, only people from certain backgrounds get to have that.  The excuses are plenty!  Listen; you only get to do this life thing once and you better make the most of it!  I used to be this person; always with a list of excuses but after the talk with D I grew up instantly.  If you don’t have a car then by all means take public transport to wherever you want to go, if you don’t have money to go to the gym then workout from home, if you are passionate about music but you are not part of a band then start your own band.  Stop waiting for a saviour and save yourself already.  Actually, you read this everyday on social media but you just won’t do anything about it but here I am trying to convince you.  Why am i even wasting my time?  As and when you are ready you will make that change.

I still don’t have a car by the way but I have set a target for myself and started working towards getting one.  My dream car is the Land Rover Discovery; she’s going to be my baby in this lifetime, one day is one day!  For now my first car will be a little fuel saver that takes me all over the country on a budget.  That way I will get to travel more and get to take a tonne of pictures, create memories and live my best life now.  I am still living my life like it’s golden by the way, pedestrian life and all but once I get my car it will be on level 47646727 so you guys should just watch this space!

Now let’s get talking, what is stopping you from living your best life now?  Do you want to die and not have lived as many happy moments as possible?  You know you can die today, right here and right now?  Would people say you were a bubbly soul who did everything in their power to spread happiness or you just lived each day unhappy and ready to stab yourself with a spoon out of sheer boredom?

Zumba Mash Up Aftermath

I bet you were never ready for two bloggers writing at once!  This is all about last Saturday and I get to share our experience with my fellow blogger/friend/lover of things Chenge.

Chenge

First of all it is a great thing for you to be selfish and take some time to do what you love. I recently joined the corporate world and underestimated how demanding it can get; especially when you actually enjoy your job. I have found myself getting so consumed to a point where I start neglecting myself.  Funny thing is Saturday morning I had excuses ready…“I’ve had a long week, I’m tired” but I didn’t stop to think that I never do anything for myself. So I dragged myself out of bed and made my way to the Village. That was one of the best decisions I made that morning because I got to be a part of a Zumba class for the first time in my life!  I was even happier to be with my good friend MaKupsy. Thank to blogging, Twitter and our love of the finer things we have an amazing relationship.

 

MaKupsy

I was up by 6am and I could not contain keep calm!!  Saturday was here and it was finally time for the Zumba Mash Up event.  I saw it on Facebook a few weeks ago and I promised myself that I would attend the event come rain or shine.  By exactly 9:10am we arrived by Sam Levy’s and there was already a crowd doing Zumba routines.  I was in heaven!  You have no idea how much I love to exercise, I live, breathe and think exercise and what made it all the more exciting was that it was one of my favourite workout routines.  I was surprised when Chenge sent a message telling me that she was on her way, the night before she had said she wouldn’t make it.  I had to keep my phone in hand because I was waiting for Chenge to show up.  She arrived a little later but it was still in time for a lot of fun and selfies, we never get tired of selfies.

I got a few take-aways from the day and they are as follows :

Crave the Lifestyle

We actually got a free day pass to Pro-Fitness Gym. Yet another first for me, I had never been in a gym in my life. For the why? I consider myself fit, broke and quite frankly, I do not have the time & luxury to be in a gym, but I realized that we disqualify ourselves from certain things because of a “This isn’t for me” kinda mentality.  However, it dawned on me that, if not for me then who? If not now, then when? We all deserve nice things in life but we have to go out there and get them! Life is for the taking. Funny enough their weekly fee and ‘walk in’ fee are quite affordable if you really think about it.  Their prices reminded me that, there really isn’t anything stopping me from living my best life, I hope nothing is stopping you.

MaKupsy

I wanted to try every single machine in the gym!  My heart was willing but my body was saying otherwise.  We had done a whole one hour of Zumba so burning 450 calories in one go was a sure way to take my energy away.  We still tried out a few machines all the same.  First stop was the treadmill for some warm up.  I was on the treadmill for about 15 minutes.  We didn’t have anyone directing us on how to use the machines so it was a whole guessing game.  Next stop was the bike which was painful my legs were not ready for that experience.  Then the gruesome part came, THE STAIRS!  I don’t know what that machine is called but we did 30 minutes of it and I don’t plan on doing it again, we were on it for about 15 minutes but we looked like someone poured buckets of water on us.  It was intense!  This was my second gym experience this year and I gave them all the marks.  The place is beautiful, the reception area is done up very professionally BUT they don’t have a swimming pool and we all know how much I love to swim!

Chenge

Life is Exciting 

The highlight of my day was definitely the sauna experience in the gym. First of all, I only know sauna’s from movies. I had never in a million years ever envisioned myself sitting on a towel, in a sauna, sweating my life out lol! Thanks to MaKupsy for just being that friend. If I was by myself I probably would have just taken a shower after my workout and been on my way home. See this is the kind of peer pressure I need in my life, pressure to live that upper life. 2017 is your babe, run with it!

MaKupsy

After nearly an hour of experimenting with different machines we did some stretching to cool down.  I didn’t want Chenge to wake up with sore muscles.  We then hit the sauna and steamer.  Chenge didn’t want to come through but I insisted she try it out and told her she would love every minute of it and she did.  Fitness Hunk was tired of waiting for us but oh well; you know what happens when two women are left to their own devices.  We got time to catch up and make plans for productive things we can do together in the near future.  Chenge is a choreographer among other things and I am all about fitness so you can only imagine the pandemonium we are going to bring to Harare, are you guys ready for it??  I love spending time with her though we always part ways having learnt new things from each other.  I love that we don’t have time for gossip, it’s all about how we can make our Creative talents grow.

Spend Time With People That Lift Your Spirit 

Alone time is important but sometimes we don’t have the luxury of choosing the people we would actually want to spend time thanks to adulating…work, school, projects, hobbies and everything else in-between. Your life can get so overwhelming and you shouldn’t have to go through such moments alone. I am passing my friend all the sando’s right now because she deserves them. She really brings a certain level of fun, chill and calm to my life, Mercy you are an amazing friend. Plus I made a new friend *smiles* his name is Fitness Hunk, and yes he is fit, yes he is a hunk LOL.  I’m not usually open to meeting new people because it is a lot of work, but I enjoyed this experience because Fitness Hunk is a reflection of MaKupsy, open to new ideas, fit, funny and great company. (plus he buys lunch)

Fun fact about MaKupsy & I, we share the same birthday and we went to the same High School, what are the odds??!!

If I can wrap up my January in a day, it would definitely be the 28th; it’s not how we start, rather how we finish, right?

MaKupsy

Do I feel bad for diving into a whole burger, chips and a salad after spending the whole morning working out?? Heck no!  I burnt over 1 000 calories and I was shaking from hunger.  Is that the ideal thing to do for a person who is supposed to be health conscious?  Of course not!! You only live once people PLUS the event came with a 50% discount from three eat out places there was no way I was going to let this miss me.  Chenge and Fitness Hunk had a hard time deciding what to have for lunch but I quickly made up my mind.  We got our food soon and munched away and told ourselves this was something we should start doing more often.  Hook up at least once a month, spend at the gym, grab a healthy bite this time around, watch a movie and the day is gone and we have all had some good old clean fun.  Watch this space next month.

afe4356b-cce5-4048-b156-0ff55077bf0c.jpg

I remember the first time we followed each other on Twitter, I was like we share the same birthday oh my word oh my word!  Then when I rejoined Facebook I realised that we went to the same High School, like how cool is that.  The best part is that we are both bloggers and I initially got to know about her through her blog; I remember reading through some of her articles thinking to myself, she’s cool, I’m cool, we should definitely be cool together.

 

We all had a beautiful day and even though we were too full to actually then proceed to go and watch a movie we decided we would meet up again soon before the tickets expired.  We love things yes but we don’t love things that much!

Of Lobola, Weddings & Such

The moment a friend tells me that they’re getting married I get very happy for them because for most women marriage doesn’t come easy.  If you meet a guy who loves you enough to wife you up then happy days for you; if not, well, we will do an entire blog post on that at a latter date.  In our culture you first pay lobola and then have a court wedding or white wedding or not, whatever tickles your fancy really but to be official you need to get the lobola thing going.

Zimbabwe Wedding MaKupsy

Wedding in Nyanga, Zimbabwe. Image from Facebook

I used to be baffled when it came to people not telling you when their boyfriend was going to pay lobola for them.  I have three or four “friends” who only told me on the actual day their lobola was being paid.  It left me questioning our friendship.  If we are supposed to be that close and that happy for each other why would you tell me on the very day of your big day?  I once concluded that it’s their way of letting you know that you’ve been left behind in the world of singledom so they just want to give you a quick surprise for you before they carry on into their married life.  Then I grew up and realised that it’s not everyone that will be happy for you when good things happen to you, your so called friends included so yes, it’s a very complex issue.

As the story continues…

Then we get excited about their wedding day if they go the white wedding route.  I help out when I can with the planning, the ideas for the venue, decoration; most of the time they complain about the in laws who are making things impossible, we go through dresses, we think of a playlist the whole shebang.  My phone is always on the charger because she needs help with this or that and we are constantly in touch.  It actually feels like my wedding by the time I go to sleep because of the levels of fatigue but I won’t be complaining because that’s what friends do right.  You help each other through good and bad times even though at this point I start feeling like an underpaid wedding planner. Hahahaha

fuscia-red-chair-cover-sashes-plus-hawaiian-flowers

The big day finally arrives and guess what has happened to me in the past for some of my “friends” weddings.

Friend 1. I was sent an invite to the wedding, oh happy days, even though I am not such a huge fan of weddings.

Friend 2.I got to be a bridesmaid for the first time and I had a fabulous time because the wedding reception was short and sweet and we wore some pretty delicious colours on the day.  Who would have thought purple and gold would rock?!

Friend 3. I never heard from her again.  A few days before her wedding she went cold turkey on me.  I knew the venue of her wedding which was out of town by the way but she never sent me a wedding invite so there was no way I was going to just rock up at her wedding uninvited.  I am not about that gate crashing a wedding life.  Some friend huh?

Enough about that let me get to the juicy bit.  So now some of my friends are married.  Remember we used to talk all the time?  I have noted that a few weeks after they get married they go missing in action.  I ask myself if they are happy, sad, overwhelmed, enjoying their honeymoon phase or just don’t want to be associated with a single someone.  Please do not get me wrong, I am not the jealous type but the I wonder what’s up type.  The moment they are married they just snub me and I never hear from them again.  Is it a thing that married women do or it’s a thing that I get dished out from my “friends” only?  Does marriage really take such a toll on an individual that you forget about your friends or at least those who considered you their friend?  Do you honestly expect me to respond to your message at the speed of lighting the moment you finally decide to communicate with me?

Like what the actual f&%k is up with that??!!

I wonder…

Chez Zandi – Bistro & Wine Bar

Chez Zandi is definitely my go to place come Friday!  Last week I hooked up with friends and we had what was supposed to be a drink or two turn into a whole night of good company, extra cold drinks, great music and delicious food. If you stay in The Avenues this might turn into your new hangout place to.  I would have you know that I pass by this place every other day when I go for my morning run but I never realised that it was the hottest place ever!

14520435_176849766094058_6411380890509612484_n.jpg

View above me

The first thing I noticed when I walked in was the decorations, definitely a plus for me.  As you walk in there is a garden area and a few children were playing there.  It’s a family friendly environment and I will make sure I take my daughter there one of these afternoons, she would definitely love all that space to run around.

There is an option to sit inside or outside the restaurant but my friends were outside already so there was no way I was going to start to ask to change tables; besides it is blazing hot lately so even at night the temperatures are crazy. However, the benches are not exactly comfortable.  You know how a bench ordinarily has three planks that go across it, well, theirs have two and for some of us who are blessed in the curves department; it made sitting pretty uncomfortable.  Perhaps management can look into this.

One thing I liked about my experience was that the waiter actually remembered our drinks and didn’t have to keep asking what we were having.  It’s unfortunate that I have forgotten his name he really did a great job.

The music was laid back and diverse for the most part then it got all hyped by the hour.  I listened to songs I last heard when I was in High School and I loved it!

All this for USD8

I honestly don’t know why I choose to do these Restaurant Reviews in the morning, now I am felling so hungry and it’s not even time to have a cup of coffee yet! That platter fed not one but three people.  Unbelievable!  Pig on the spit, chips and a salad.  It was absolutely delicious and now just thinking of what I am probably going to eat for lunch today has me rethinking about waiting for Friday to go back to Chez Zandi.  I actually thought we would need another platter but we were all full by the time we were done.  The food was reasonably priced, fresh and finger licking good!

IMG-20161007-WA0036.jpg

See how happy I get when I see food 🙂

After one too many I had to use the powder room.  This is one of the areas I am really sensitive about when I go out because it determines whether I will come back or not.  I was pleasantly surprised.  The bathroom was clean; tissue was available, there was hand soap, hand lotion, air freshener and the mirror was intact.  The whole time I went to use the bathroom it was clean and that was A LOT of times, trust me.  I don’t know why I pee so much when I drink and once I start I don’t stop! That said, there was a time I got to the bathroom and it was packed.  There were 5 women ahead of me and I was convinced I was going to pop.  I went to check out the men’s bathroom and there was absolutely noone so you know I did what you are thinking right now, I had no choice, I was seriously going to burst!  That’s another area to look into, maybe have two bathrooms for the women?  It will save a lot of jumping up and down trying to stop ourselves from peeing on ourselves.

Will I recommend this place to anyone?  HECK  YES!  This time around I will bring all the friends I made from the Road Trip to Sanganai Creek because they are an amazing bunch and we will certainly have a great time here.  I will rate Chez Zandi a cool 8/10 my experience here was lovely.

I got home sometime before 0100hrs, see how this is THE place to go on a Friday night?

Oh, I took a picture of the menu for those who might want to also give it a try. I will definitely go for one of their Jazz Sundays sometime soon.

What did you get up to over the weekend?  I bet your weekend was not as interesting as mine.

P.S. Why didn’t anyone tell me there was another place to hang out that is NOT Centurion I am enough of that place!

This Is Why You’re His Side Chick

Ever wondered why he will have a side chic or two but NEVER leave his wife or main chic?  I asked a couple of guys and this is what they told me…

  • It is happy ever after for me so there is no backing down.
  • In her I have made a heavy emotional and material investment that I just can’t walk away from.
  • Mainly because I would need a lawyer and would lose half my shit!
  • I don’t see my side chic as an equal or replacement.
  • Most men easily get distracted but the distraction doesn’t last forever, I stay with my main focus.
  • She has been tried and tested and proven to be loyal.
  • It’s really simple for me, I love my main chic and luck for my side chic.
  • My main chic is someone who is a constant challenge with drive but also respectful towards me through the good and bad times.
  • My wife is deeply committed to me and loves me for me and not for the material things I have.  We have come a long way.
  • I made her my best friend, how could I possibly live without her?
  • She completes me, she is the yin to my yang.

Africa Day!

Africa Day is the annual commemoration of the 1963 founding of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), presently recognized as the Africa Union (AU).  You can read more Africa Day from here.

I will be honest with this one.  I am just so freaking happy that today is a holiday and I get to be away from the stresses of everyday life for just this one random Wednesday.  However, with all the excitement I still have no clue what I am going to do with my day.  I was thinking I could do one, two or all of the following today.

  1. I can go and visit my cousin and finally see her new born baby.  She will be a whole month old soon but I haven’t had time to see her bundle of joy because she stays really far away so I will have all the time to make the trip to her place and back to mine.
  2. I can also go and see my friend who I haven’t seen in ages.  This adulting thing can really make you lose touch and never have time for face to face interactions.  I could actually kill two birds with one stone here.  See my friend first then my cousin later..hmm
  3. I can spend the day glued to a TV Series.  Seeing that I am up to date with Reign (Queen Mary is really pretty by the way!)  I need to figure out what else I can get myself hooked onto.
  4. I can make myself useful in the kitchen and try out a new recipe.  I haven’t had T-bone Steak in forever and if anyone has any juicy clue on how to prepare it differently please do share.
  5. I can spend the day reading blogs and working on the blog posts I promised a few people
  6. I can sleep all day long and probably get a headache from oversleeping while I’m at it…okay, that idea won’t fly.
  7. I can spend it drinking Vodka and making dumb decisions while I’m at it.
  8. I can run 20K just to see if my body will let me get out of that one alive.

Whatever option I choose to go with I just have to remember that I have to be at work tomorrow morning so I can have fun but not too much of it.  Sigh

If you have a holiday break today, what have you planned to do with your day?

Friendship

Friendships usually start because of common ground, and for Tanya and I, pregnancy brought us together.  I noticed we had a mutual friend on Facebook and decided to add her to my friend’s list.  It’s good to note that some good comes out of these social networks right?  We were both in our third trimester and both going through all the changes that come with pregnancy.  I gave birth first and told her all the traumatising things I went through during labour (and added a bit of lies here and there for dramatic effect);  and nearly a month later she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, who is now my son-in-law to be because he is just too cute.

We kept in touch over the phone mostly and only got to meet in person a year later.  We have been very good friends ever since.  She is like a sister to me.  We have our fair share of fights, where we can go months on end sulking for no reason.  I have concluded that it must be a “last born syndrome” that we both suffer from so we both come with pride issues.  Times we are not talking and being childish, I miss her terribly.  When we do get back in touch, it’s like we never stopped talking at all.

Tanyr

I have never had a friend who simply does not stop chatting.  We are on Whatsapp from 5am till 10pm each and every day and we never run out of things to say. We share almost everything, from tips on how to raise our children better, goals and aspirations, new recipes to try out, sex stories, gossip in small doses(do you really believe this part?) and almost everything else that women who are super close share.  Even on days I am not in chat mode I will ignore everyone else and chat with her instead because we are just a crazy pair.  She is a one in a million character and if you are not used to her you would think this little missy has issues.  Oh, by the way, she is really small but has a big mouth it is simply unbelievable!!

She is one of the few people who are close and dear to me because with her I can be myself and not worry about being judged or ridiculed.  We are open and honest with each other and because of her some days I have pushed myself when all I wanted to do was chill out and do nothing.  I wrote this post to let her know that I am glad that she is in my life and that no matter what’s going on between us, be it on the “mute” days or on the days we are really getting along she is and always will be the one friend I am glad I have and will always cherish.   Through her I have learnt to pursue my dreams, be more giving and caring, to realise that everyone including myself deserve nothing but the best.  Thank you for being a great friend Tanya, you are loved from the moon and back.
