Not me Monday!


It's hard to believe the week-end has gone and here we are, back in the swing of things for another week. And what a fabulous week-end we had. On Friday night we went to see "Dancing Queen" with our dear friends from Botswana, Garth and Gill! It was a tribute to Queen and Abba and started off in 1973 when ABBA won the Eurovision Song Festival with "Waterloo"! I did NOT get goose bumps the moment they walked onto the stage and would NEVER have shouted "Woo! Woo!" because I was having such a good time. Me? So silly? Not a chance - I would never have such fun!

I was not exhausted when I woke up on Saturday morning and I defintely did NOT have a headache - all due to that last glass of wine I had, just before we left. I did not decide to have a ME day and do absolutely nothing for anyone - except for me! I did not put a treatment on my hair and leave it in all day, causing me to look like something the cat dragged in. I would NEVER allow myself to look like that all day - not me! Ha! But you should see the condition of my hair now!

I was not absolutely delighted when the heavens clouded over and we had solid rain for most of the day on Saturday. I would never be happy to see the back of the sun! Not me ...

I did not jump for joy when my Busi (our domestic worker) came home last night with her wedding photographs after having one months leave! I did not run and hug her as though I was never going to let her go! I am not looking forward to sharing some of her traditional wedding memories with you all and I do not regret not being able to go to the wedding although we were invited. I do not regret it, it just breaks my heart that we couldn't make it ...

For some more "Not me Monday" laughs, don't forget to go to "My Charming Kids".
