Crystal Ball Gazing...

... and I know why we're not meant to know what the future holds. I never want to look into a crystal ball, I want the future to be just that - the future. We aren't supposed to know what it holds. I believe we should live every day to its fullest.

I totally LOVED today. There are a couple of hours left of my birthday, and I had a special day shared with my family (my sis, brother inlaw and my parents). Add one special little boy Nkosi, who spent the night with Wawa and Uncle Daze (he talks a lot now!)

Yes, the day started with 4 hours of work! But that's what happens less than a week before a series of country-wide events for a total of more than 800 people!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes, cards and pressies I've received - LOVED it all.

I think this week is going to be a busy one.... I'll take just one day at a time... and as for the future... I'll wait til I get there.

2 weeks and counting...

Yes, only two weeks, that's 14 days... until my big day - Scrapbooking for Hope on 28th October.

I can't believe that months and months of work is nearing an end. The next 2 weeks are going to fly by much faster than I would like them to. There's lots still to do, but we're pretty much there.

I can promise that if you're attending, you won't be disappointed. There is a sea of pink in our storage area, our very full storage area! Let the countdown begin!!

P.S. If you're not busy tomorrow (Sunday) lunch time, head down to Nelson Madela Square at Sandton City. We will be welcoming the women who have been "Biking for Breast Health - A Journey of Hope" from Cape Town to Johannesburg.

These women, riding BMW sponsored motorbikes, have traveled through towns and rural communities, sharing the message of the importance of early detection.

Support "Biking for Breast Health – A Journey of Hope" by sending an SMS and the word BIKE to 36655. Each SMS will cost R5-00; the proceeds will be donated to the Breast Health Foundation. The sender will also stand a chance to win a BMW motorcycle and many spot prizes.

P.P.S. And don't forget to sign up for the Celebrity Page Layout raffle (see post below)
