First, thank you to read.cash for fixing the error so quickly!

This is a real diary entry! This morning was absolutely awesome with being able to get some of the photos I did, here are two (I posted them on noise.cash as well, but I am just so happy with them!). 

Thank you! To everyone who reads my random rambles, my sponsors, likers, commenters, and to the people who read my articles but don't say a word 🤣 you all have motivated me, and keep motivating me to do better, thank you🌺

The day was pretty average at work, but it ended up with more of the typical politics and fights with management about marketing. I said that I would be helping them to try and get more customers...well, the meeting went less-than-well when I began to discuss reducing prices. Eventually the MD came around so the marketing is underway! I seriously hope this works. I do not think I could deal with "I told you so!". 

My driver's license

I applied to renew my drivers license MONTHS ago, and then I was told to wait for a text message (it was supposed to be ready in a few weeks). I decided today I HAVE to go and check on it and try and get it. I turned up and everything went fairly easy. Did the covid screening nonsense and then waited whilst hoping the license was ready. The lady disappears into a giant shelf and starts pulling around, then she pulls out a form. Well...she starts processing it and I looked at the license (they've got photos on them) and I said to her, "Wait, I don't think that's me!"

The lady goes, "What do you mean?" she was shocked, horrified...then passed the license under the glass-thing we have because of robbers and crime and violence and (welcome to SA). I took it and started laughing. It was 100% me. I looked like a guy in the photo!! The light was fairly dim and it was upside down. I am seriously still laughing my butt off because really...I've never looked like a guy before. I can assure you I am very much a woman! 🤣 So the lady starts laughing when I tell her, "I LOOK LIKE A MAN!".

Anywayyyyyyy 😛 I told Mom and Dad about it on the drive home and then I came around the corner to see they had started a braai for us. Below photo is of our braai...

I am just full of love and thankfulness right now. My parents have done so much for me in my life and being able to have all of us together and for me to be able to take care of my family makes all the battles of life worthwhile. It stops all the rage and anger at life and all the badness in the world. I couldn't be more thankful for our little bubble of happiness. We've always been a close family, but since lockdown, we are even closer. Many people have been separated from their loved ones - we were fortunate that before lockdown happened, Mom and Dad and our furbabies had moved in by me. It's meant that through the good, the bad and the ugly we've been able to share each others lives and spend quality time together.

My fiance is on a train back from work and he'll be home soon. We're going to do skype tonight and we've got some scratchcards that he got for us on the weekend. You never know when you might win! I'm hopeful tonight may be our night.

The Power of Positivity

I want to leave you with this card, this is one of the vision cards my Mom made me for my birthday 🌻

Image source: card made by my Mom

It's time for rooibos tea and to climb into bed now. But first! Scratch cards 🤣 if you see some strange posts from me, you'll know we have won and are one step closer to our paradise world to start helping those who need it most. My dream of what we are going to do will become a reality. So many people deserve freedom and a chance at life, our village and haven will create it 🌺

All photos here are my own (except the photo on my Mom's vision card).

aah so many things in this post...like lols..."I look like a man!" bwahaha... I'm sure you don't actually but that story made me laugh. Then the warmth of family; just the best... and a braai...nothing more SAFFA than that...oh but wait there is!!! A gemsquash on the braai. Yums! I'm vegan so my braaing always involves veg and soy. Do you precook your Gems at all or just sommer plak them down on the grid for X length of time? I wanna do this too ;-)

The thing with that photo is that I had my hair tied back at the time it was taken and it seriously looked in the bad lighting like I was a frowning man 🤣 the photo itself is actually alright when you see it right way up and in decent light 🤭 I've never pre-cooked them, basically sommer plak works amazingggg haha you'll love it! Little bit of spice on it, delicious! How long have you been vegan for?

It's funny that you looked like a man in the license photo. What re you gonna do about it being upside down? I guess you completely ignored it.

Thankfully it was only upside down because of how we were standing. It was just the angle that made me look really manly! 🤣

Like a man?😂😂😂 did you cut your hair before snapping the picture?. Also the lockdown has also helped in ways like that. It has brought people closer to each other and opened different opportunities for many.

I didn't cut it, but my hair was tied back which made it look really short / slick cut 🤣 I am just hoping that with these lockdowns and the lies people will wake up and stand together. The governments are a worse virus than covid.
