  1. 1. So want to be there for the braai, have not had one in ages 😦
    12. Bring your Panama hat with when you come here (you’ll need it and you WILL come here…(my heart’s wish)
    16. Glencairn beach ROCKS…ditto 🙂
    18…don’t worry, right time, right place…we still love you.
    26. Having a Merlot right now!!
    28. Meeee…hi girlfriend xxx
    38. My newfound friend xxx
    41. I love you oxo

  2. I love this …

    “ham and cheese croissant!” … Yum! loved them when I could have them …

    “strive” = 568 times – what dedication … you didn’t just say it was overused … of course the count does rather strengthen the advice! Wonder that wasn’t noticed by the writer.

    This time I know braai is roasted meat … I’m learning. Thank you! Blogging gives armchair travel a whole new dimension.

    Easing into the day with a little blogging … and a little coffee … taking the day off from writing so I have time to fulling indulge in visits and see what everyone is up to …

    Happy Sunday, Cindy. Happy braai-ing??!! …. with family and friends.


  3. You have far more patience that I have…such questionaries would never get answered if I had to do it….have a lovely Sunday..well by now it should be well on there. 😉

  4. I strive not to include “strive” in every sentence I write.

    Barefoot and tan, wearing turquoise pjs, and dreaming of the next Merlot to cross one’s lips . . . great way to start the day.

  5. #10 – 568 times?! That’s more than two single-spaced pages worth of them! I hope it was a long document at least…
    #24 – Could use one myself right about now!
    #32 – I’m dumbfounded! – You have a tattoo?? Do tell!

    Hope you’re having a great day 🙂
