Hi fellow bloggers, I can assure you the weather in South Africa this year is extremely unpleasant. It was 30 degrees Celsius in the shade today in Johannesburg. Definitely not suitable when you want to bake cookies or do some last minute chores before Christmas day.
I want to thank everyone who visited this blog in 2015 and wish you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!

1. Flour fight festival in Spain – in pictures
Each year the Els Enfarinats festival takes place in the town of Ibi in eastern Spain. One group of men take over the town pronouncing a whole host of ridiculous laws and fining the citizens that infringe them. Another group do battle with flour and eggs to regain control. All the fines raised go to charity

It was a sad Christmas for me. I spent the day with my mom. We were watching some DVDs and I would make a comment like “this actor hasn’t changed much over the years” I would count to ten and my mom would say “you know GB he still looks the same”. I would say “this actress use to be so popular I wonder what she is doing now” and after the count of ten my mom would say ” we haven’t seen her in years, whatever happened to her?”.
Those who worked hard on Christmas day should take it easy today.
I hope no one has regrets today
I hope that some wonderful memories will last.
I hope you realise now you can’t trust a bearded man ….
… with your Christmas ornaments!
Hoping you are resting peacefully today.
AND may you and your loved ones find peace and happiness.
Are you ready ….
… the people who you can’t avoid
… the family you don’t want near you …
