Chapmans Peak


Chapmans Peak

This is the real money shot...looking across to Hout Bay where we saw some seals sunbathing.

South Africa....what a wonderful country!

Fish Hoek


Fish Hoek beach...The beach my hubby surfed on after school when he was a young lad.  In those days you grabbed your board and off you went....nowadays he'd be slightly less tempted because of the great whites...big, medium and small boy all went in, but behind the shark nets.

What a wonderful country, white sands, blue skies, clear waters and soaring hills....stunning!

Challenge Tuesday

I do love a bit of alliteration...don't you?

So here it is...not quite Challenge Anneka (for those British readers of a certain age)....more like something that stretches me a bit.  This is going to come in the form of a weekly chunk of German (I'm a beginner on a distance learning course). Not very reader friendly for those who don't speak German....actually, probably not that reader friendly for those who speak German.....The thing is, I never speak...mainly because I don't get the opportunity...but also now, because I'm tongue-tied....

Dieses Jahr, möchte ich mehr Deutsch sprechen.  Ich lerne seit 18 Monaten, aber ich kann nicht Deutsch sprechen.  Wenn ich versuche, kann ich mich nicht die Wörten erinnern.  Ich fühle mich böse und dumm!

Jede Woche, will ich ein bisschen sprechen.

Können Sie mir helfen?  Können Sie Deutsch sprechen?

Also, ein bisschen über mich....



Ich stricke sehr gern.  Heute, stricke ich ein Sockenpaar für meine Mutter.  Die Socken sind farbenfroh wie einen Regenbogen!  Hoffentlich, wird sie fröhlich sein.

Ich mache zwei Socken zusammen, weil ungeduldig ich bin.  Ich habe nur eine Socke, wenn ich stückweise stricke.

Happy Friday - 16.01.15



Happiness is...........casting on...........

Nothing like a new project on the needles to make me smile (despite the fact the other* project is very much not finished).

Winding the wool to hopefully get some sort of match in the colours and now cracking on, with the toe done already.  Toe-up two at a time.

Why the sudden need for socks?  Well I happened to be looking at Planet Penny's homemade socks and before I knew it I was hunting for a ball of sock wall that I bought a few years ago.

Joining in with Planet Penny's Happy Friday....why don't you pop over there and take a look at everyone else's happy things too.

* if you are fooled that there is only one unfinished project I'm impressed
