Dear 2009

My my my...what a year this has been. Full of ups and downs, happies and all round good year:) I've decided to end my year saying: 'I'm tracing the outlines of 2009 and liking the picture I see'.

I've decided to dedicate this post to everything that happened this year, both good and all these things played a roll in who I am today:)

2009 will be etched into my memory for the following reasons:
  • I started my Masters degree in Forensic Auditing. I won't lie, it's been hectic. Working and studying full time while trying to remain a social butterfly is no joke...but somehow, with much insomnia, much coffee, lots of love and no sleep I managed to pass the first half with flying colours. I did well, and I can honestly say I'm proud of myself.
  • I sold my little noenoe who has been my companion since I started driving after the accident
  • Bought my gorgeous new baby.......*happy in love sigh*
  • Paid off my study loan
  • Got caught in the middle of a shootout between police and some idiots while driving home after watching District 9
  • District 9
  • My feet got burnt by acidic powder that was inside a pair of sexy shoes I bought. I was miserable and the burns were insane. But i'm happy to report that my feet have now fully recovered. The rather exclusive shop was quite shocked and refunded me for the shoes, they also paid my medical bills at the end of the day.
  • Almost got ran off the road by a cop cause he was on his cell phone
  • Mrs Reindeer passed away.....she paid such an important part in my life for so many is with great sadness and fondness that i remember this part of 2009
  • We discovered a really disturbing murial in our local Panarotti's
  • My chamber got married...yay!!!!
  • I tried my best to have weekends away as often as possible....even when I'm practically dying of Bronchitis
  • My dear, dear friend AK's little girl was born. What an awesome little girl...such a blessing!
  • The sad and interesting journey through my dear gran's life when we had to help her pack up all her stuff. I still carry the little coin with me:)
  • For the first time i can truly say I've forgiven the guy who crashed into me 4 years ago. It's been a long journey.
  • erm......I sprayed myself with pepperspray for the second time.....*sigh*
  • I lost 11kg without dieting or putting myself through hell and i fit into clothes i haven't been able to wear for ages....yay me!
  • I joined changed my life:)
  • I started doing Salsa and fell completely in love with it:)
  • I decided it was OK to make mistakes and to not be so hard on myself
  • Another very special person died #sadness
  • I managed to give myself consussion on a ride at gold reef city...*sigh*...I swear, only me!
  • An aircon just fell out of the wall and only just missed me while i was working
  • My stalker started following me around in a car without a license plate.
  • I met a bunch of really incredible people this year - thanx guys...your friendship is greatly appreciated
  • I had to say goodbye to friends...this is never easy
  • I realised it is possible for someone to be significant in your life even if you don't know them very well.
  • Baby Nicola was born:)
  • I came to the realisation that there are people, other than my family, who really really care about me, who are willing to fight for me. I'm truly amazed and humbled by this. *much affection*
  • Spiritually I grew so much....:)
In many ways, it's been a very tough year, but it has also been a good year. I'm happy, I'm content, I'm fulfilled....I'm me:)

Thank you so much to everybody who has been a part of my life this year. You have made it special and worth remembering. And i truly hope that you will continue to play a role in my life in the year to come. What does 2010 hold....I have no idea. But what I do know is that i'm excitedly looking forward to it. I love my life, and i plan to continue loving it and building it and celebrating it in the year to come.

Lots of love

P.S. Here's a couple of snapshots from 2009 :) Oh! and feel free to add any significant things that happened in 2009 that i might have missed:)

Happy and blessed 2010 my beautiful, special people!!!!! *hugs and kisses*

Dear Bro & Sis-in-law

Tonight you guys made me cry.....a lot...for a number of reasons. Firstly I was crying out of sheer emotion and joy at the gift you had given me for Christmas, it was truly thoughtful, and was the action that set the other reasons for the good cry I just had into motion....but more on that later.

Secondly I cried because I really, really miss you.....both of you! I haven't seen you in almost two years and because we have always been close as brother and sister this breaks my heart. But it's a bit hard with you guys living in the states. Christmas has always been family time for us. Everybody gets together, spending time to catch up, talk nonsense, cook together, eat together and generally to share love and happiness for each other. But you're not here...there is a bit of a hole in my happiness.

Actually, i think my second reason for crying and all the emotions that went along with missing you describes the majority of why i just spent the last half an hour writing you an e-mail, drying off tears and grinning stupidly....I love, and I miss you so much!

Anyhoodle, on to the gift. This year, you decided to be a little different. Giving each other gifts when we are thousands of km apart is never an easy feat. So this year you decided to be slightly different. You made a donation to 'World Vision' on my behalf. So this evening when I opened my mail, this is what awaited me....or a part of it really don't need to see the part where they tell me how much they love and miss me...we already know that part:

"A gift of five ducks has been given in your honor
Thought you might like a few adorable little ducks for Christmas this year! I bet none of your friends got the same thing ;-)"

It probably sounds silly, but i burst into tears. Thank you so much! What an incredible gift. Donating ducks to a family who hasn't got any food or any form of livelihood. My heart feels all warm and fuzzy and happy.

May you and the yankee part of your family have an amazingly blessed Christmas. I miss you and I love you both so incredibly much!

Dear AG

Wow! I can’t believe you’re gone. That I will never again hear your bell like giggle, your often strange but sound advice, your stories....that i will never again be able to give you a hug and tell you that you are special.

My heart aches so much, and at the same time I’m grateful that you were not subjected to months of pain and suffering. You were a strong, courageous and spirited woman, and that is how i wish to remember you.

A couple of years ago you were diagnosed with breast cancer. Our family is particularly high risk when it comes to this type of cancer, and we were all afraid for you, but praying and rooting that much like my gran you would beat it. You were shattered when the doctors informed you that you would have to have a double mastectomy. I don’t think any of us understands the emotions a woman has to deal with when it comes to losing both her is so much a part of what makes us sensual and so much emphasis is put on it as part of the female form that i think it is an incredible scary thing to face. The fear that your husband would never look at you the same, that you wouldn’t feel feminine and sensual.....those are fears that I pray i never have to face.

But your husband was an angel and helped you to face this thing head-on. The operation was followed with months of intensive chemo therapy.....your strength was stretched to its limits. But, the cancer went into remission....and we all rejoiced with you. Your check ups went well and your results were always clear and good. No sign of the cancer coming back. Then 2 weeks ago you suddenly became violently ill. Nobody knew what was wrong. Nobody suspected. You had been to your check up recently, and your results were clear and was the last thing we suspected.

By last week Friday the cancer had returned so violently and aggressively.......they discovered a brain tumor, a tumor in your eye, both your liver and your kidneys absolutely devoured by it. This morning you quietly passed away...leaving behind your husband and your 2 darling children. But even in your darkest moments you were a joy and a strength to us all. Being strong and courageous and peaceful.

My heart aches, but I am grateful that you did not suffer long. That you were at peace when it was your time to go. We comfort ourselves in knowing that you’ve gone home and that someday soon we will all be reunited, in a place where cancer does not exist.

You are a beautiful woman, loved and adored by all of us, and you shall be missed. Rest in peace.

Dear Lallie

Happy happy birthday my darling baby cousin!!! Although, i suppose at 22 you're not such a "baby" anymore huh? Damn! can't believe you're all grown up and ready to face the world...and to crown it all, you are taller than me:)

May the years ahead be filled with many blessings, love, happiness and growth. You are an amazing person and I love you! I am excited for your possible new job opportunities and can't believe that you are big enough to be moving away and starting up all on your own. I'm happy, but I'm also sad. You, along with your 2 sisters, have become my baby sisters. And sometimes i find it very hard to let go. I'm going to miss you so very much...more I think than you'll ever know.

Keep that big smile on your face, touch the lives of those around you and never forget who you are. Nobody can ever take that away from you. Happy happy again darling!!!

Lots of love

Dear Readers

I realise I've been awfully quiet of late, and that all the little letters you have been able to get your eyes on have been kind of short and not really up to my normal standard. I've been busy....busy with work, with my masters, with friends, with issues, with life in general really:)

I have however been working on this little letter for a couple of days. It isn't often that I write a post that contains a lot of "bare all" from me. Yes, I show emotion, and love and sadness and anger and all the rest, but more often than not, you'll notice that I'm kinda sketchy when it comes to the mind and heart of me. I don't like opening myself up, being vulnerable and admitting weakness, and therefore it doesn't happen very often. But here, in this letter, is a little piece of me, Ruby, in her raw and unedited form.....enjoy!

After 27 years, I'm of the opinion that I know myself pretty the time I'm 35 I'll probably look back on this letter and marvel at my silliness for even beginning to think i know myself...but right now, as it stands...this is what I've learnt.

I HATE admitting that I'm wrong. In fact, if I've ever admitted to being wrong about anything serious and you were the recipient of such an admission...consider yourself lucky. I rarely get involved in a discussion if I'm not quite sure of my story because of this usually i don't have to admit that I'm wrong. But I've done and said some pretty screwed up things in my life. Don't get me wrong...if I'm wrong and i KNOW it, I will admit to this fact and apologize....but it's not something that comes to me easily.

As far as relationships or impending relationships go...I shouldn't have too much time to think. I've learned that mostly I should be caught off guard. Not completely, but a little. If I'm allowed too much thinking time between realising that a dude is into me and the time where something actually happens between us, I will more than likely come up with a million reasons why it would never work and I'll end up neatly avoiding any romantic involvement. Yes....I am an over thinker....but i tend to be even worse than most people.

As much as i am confident and feisty and a little fighter who works hard for all she's got and who is ready to take on the world on her own for what she truly wants and for what she truly believes the end of the day I'm just a little girl at heart.

The thing that really rips the carpet from underneath my feet is disappointment. I hate disappointing the people i love and even more than that i hate disappointing myself. Anger and frustration and sadness I can cope with without missing a beat...disappointment...gets me every time.

I can't stand injustice, half truths and lies. I always feel the need to point it out and fix it.

I suck at being angry for longer than a couple of minutes and for the life of me i can't hold grudges. I'm generally a pretty upbeat person, and being angry and moody turns me into a difficult and unhappy person...this irritates me, so anger and moodiness flies out the window pretty quickly.

The one thing i post even less about than my inner "me-ness" is my faith. Not because I'm ashamed or not passionate, it's simply because I don't believe in bombarding people with what I believe. But this letter would be incomplete without mentioning it. Despite being an extremely rational and realistic and scientific person I can not deny that I believe in God. That my faith in Him is the one thing that makes me who I am. It keeps me sane and positive and excited about life. There is just too much in my life that is completely unexplainable and too marvelous to explain in any other way.

Maybe writing this has opened me up to negative comments and future hurts...who knows. All I know is that at the end of the day...this is me. Granted, there is a lot more to the inner "me-ness" than what I've written in this letter, but this is definitely a part of it.



P.S. Now be nice!

Dear Drunk driver

Yesterday marked the 4 year anniversary or that dreadful night. The night you chose to do something irresponsible, the night that for a while I was convinced had ruined my life, the night that changed my life and me forever.

Now, 4 years down the line I can look back and see all the good things that came from it. I walked away from that accident a stronger person. More aware of how much the people around me cared for me. How incredibly blessed I am. And definitely a person who spends less time over thinking things, choosing rather to LIVE!

I wrote all of my feelings and all the details with regards to that accident 2 years ago here, and today i really can look back and say that so much have changed. No longer do i feel anger or resentment. I think, finally after 4 years, i have fully forgiven you. And I'm moving on completely.

I suppose I'll always remember 28 September. It was afterall a life changing experience for me....but maybe now I won't remember it with sadness and anger. But rather with celebration and thanksgiving.

Dear Ruby

So, thanks to inspiration from Sleepyjane, I've decided to write this letter. You my dear ruby are in desperate need of a good talking to, and i plan to give it to you, without any sugar coating this time. So listen up!

1. Yes, you acted like a complete idiot. Shit happens, so get over it OK? You've been blessed with a mouth and fingers that blurt out whatever is on your mind before you have the chance to think about it and realise it's a bad idea. You should be used to it by now.....accept it and embrace's part of your charm:P

2. Stop being so hard on yourself. You tend to be overly forgiving when it comes to other people, but ride yourself into the ground over even the slightest misstep from your side. You are not perfect, and therefore you can not always do the right thing. Admit the mistake and move on.

3. Your slaves are idiots....Stop being so disappointed and surprised whenever they make a mess of things. This has become the norm rather than the exception and is not a reflection on you. Your boss knows this.

4. Pepper spray is meant for criminals. Not for self mutilation. Once can be excused....twice just makes you a chop!

5. You need to start eating like a normal human being. It is not acceptable to not eat for 48 hours...regardless of whether you're hungry or not. Eat at least twice a day from now on.

6. You need to stop complaining so much. You are blessed with a life that mostly resembles a fairy need to remember this more often.

7. Working and studying full time is tough. You can not have the same social schedule you had before. You're going to need to scale down and be more picky about where you go, who you go with and what you do. Try and choose your social events in such a way that you get to see the maximum amount of people...and if there are people who refuse to understand that you can not just leave everything to see them the way you used to, well, then maybe they are not worth leaving everything to go and see to begin with. True friends will have sympathy for your situation, they will also be aware of the fact that if it was an emergency, no amount of work would ever be able to keep you away.

8. And last but certainly not least. It might be advisable to get at least 2 hours of sleep each night. Now i realise it's not your fault you have insomnia, and that currently your insomniac ways is probably a blessing...but you can only go on for so long with no's going to get you eventually...honest!

Dear Metrocops

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

On Friday night, while i was on my way home from watching District 9.....awesome movie btw, you guys should totally go watch it if you haven't seen it yet.....the unthinkable happened. There I was, driving along happily in my little baby, listening to Nickle Creek when suddenly this black car, came speeding from behind, overtook me, cut me off and forced me to a standstill. Then, within seconds 2 metro police vehicles came to a screeching halt behind my now stationary car.

I was feeling pretty confused until the first shots rang out. Those idiots were firing at you guys and i was right in the middle of it all. After what felt like an eternity and a million shots, more metro cops came chasing from the other direction and the dudes were apprehended. I on the other hand could not move.

A very friendly policeman, whose name I just can't remember, came up to me and asked me if I was OK. I wasn't, but I managed to say that I was and that i would like to go home now. He was sweet enough to escort me home and make sure i got there safely. I was sort of OK until i actually got home...I freaked out, completely. And bought shares in Hysterics R us...and throughout all of this the kind police officer just stood there patting me on the back and telling me it's OK, it's over now and I'm fine.

So I'd like to thank you guys first of all for dealing with the situation quickly and efficiently. And even though i don't remember the guys name,I'd like to say thank you to the police man who treated me with such kindness and patience in my moment of absolute melt down. Thank you!



P.S. erm.....just so you know, I'd like to point out to you guys that you might want to reconsider having roadblocks on Witkoppen during peak time traffic.....It really really screws us normal people around and makes us a bit negative...k?

To my dear dear blue eyed boy

This started out as a very emotional and heart wrenching post...but after much deliberation I ended up deleting the whole thing. I miss you, I'm worried about you and I wish that things were still they way they used to be. You were my boy, my friend and a ray of sunshine in my life. These days I hardly see you. I have no idea what is going on in your life, and the little I do know I hear from other people or through FB. I'm not sure where exactly the distance came from. I don't think either of us are to blame...I suppose it's just one of those things...but that doesn't mean I have to be happy about it.

Our conversations have lost their passion and tenderness. And we're lucky if it lasts more than 2 minutes and get much further than "hi! how are you? What have you been up to?" We used to be inseparable. You were the one person I would always phone when things got tough. The one who understood me. You GOT me.

But before I become all emotional and girly I just wanted to tell you this. I miss you! More than you can ever imagine. And I will always love you in that special way that we love each other. Closer than the bestest of friends and yet, no more than friends. Look after yourself you hear.

I love you

Dear ghost of weekend past

What a weekend! I'm dead tired, and the week's only just started, although, that might be due to the fact that i only went to bed at 3 last night rather than a busy weekend:)

So on Friday and Monday I undertook the journey to and from the parentals and in the process was subjected to the national sport of the Free State - Pot hole dodging. I'm pretty good at it too....since I've been doing it for years traveling between uni at home at least 4 times a year and between jhb and home in more recent years. On Monday however, some poor dude wasn't quite as good at it as he thought, and his reckless 160km/h on a road so riddled with potholes that they should have a warning saying "Caution, sections of road ahead" instead of "Potholes for next 100km" ended in a nasty wreckage. He was hurt, but apparently no permanent damage was done to him...the car however was a complete write off.

On Saturday we travelled down to my gran for the day. Yes, she lives 250km away, and yes we often just go for the day. And yes, i guess we might be just a little odd. Anyhoodle, to get back to my story. The reason we went is because she needed us to help her pack up her things, and to go through the stuff she won't be able to take with her and divide it between the children and grandchildren. See, earlier this year she fell and broke her back. At 83 she is still living on her own and looking after herself quite well actually, but after the fall she realised that she can't continue to live on her own indefinitely. So she's decided to move in with my aunt, but she'll be visiting all the children for long periods of time, so she'll only be there like 3 months in the year anyway.

I wasn't exactly thrilled at going through her stuff and helping to divide it up and choosing what i wanted. It felt like a gross invasion of privacy. Like we were scratching through her whole life, looking for the parts we wanted most and ripping them from her life. It almost felt like we were saying goodbye. Quite a few tears were shed during the course of the day by my gran, my mom and her sisters and also us grandchildren. But the day was also filled with tons of old stories, tales of how and when a certain object was obtained.....i realised that my Gran's life had been filled with amazing stories.

When we got their my gran called me aside with a very mischievous look on her face. In her room she had hidden a number of articles which she didn't want anybody but me to have, since I'm the oldest granddaughter. Now, I've never been a very sentimental person, but this weekend I discovered that faced with certain situations I can be extremely sentimental and also emotional...who would have thought. The first thing she gave me was my great grandmother's recipe book. Now i realise that this sounds ridiculous, but bear in mind that this book is more than a century old. It's historical value alone is overwhelming, but of course the sentimental value was the one that got me. The second item which want to mention specifically is a small hand embroidered purse which contained a 100 year old threepence. I knew about this little purse and coin and before my gran even managed to say anything i was in tears. You see, my great gran used to say that you always have to carry a little money with you in the form of change, in case of emergency or in case you needed to phone. So she always carried this purse with the coin in her handbag, and when she was really old she gave it to my gran. And although she knew it was silly and sentimental since she could do nothing with a threepence she carried it with her all these years. And she wanted me, as the eldest grand daughter, to have it, and to do with it whatever i please. 3 Guesses where that little purse is right at this very moment :D

I spent the most of the rest of the weekend working on ASSignments which were due today, and yay me! because i e-mailed them in earlier today:) On my way back yesterday I encountered something which is neither strange nor uncommon considering where I grew up. It made me smile, knowing that my journey was being delayed by 15min because of this
Thank you, dear ghost of weekend past for an awesome weekend. For the time I got to spend with my parentals and with my gran and with the other family:)

Dear Moyo Zoolake

Well, as you guys know I had my birthday party at your restaurant not so long ago. Despite the fact that I was almost an hour late for my own party...i swear this was totally outside of my control....we had an amazing time. The food was absolutely awesome and a good time was had by all. Here are some of the pictures we took.

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Dear Angel

Ok, so I haven't written any letters lately *hangs head in shame* and i feel really bad about this, but with the exams

and the studying and all I just didn't get around to it. Then today I read your blog and i decided i would follow in your

footsteps and do a 69er. I promise to give everybody more read worthy material soon OK?

1. Are your parents married or divorced?

They are still married and extremely happy and in love. As a teenager I used to get embarrassed by the PDA, but as i matured I now look at them with new eyes and appreciate the fact that they are still so much in love:)

2. Are you a vegetarian? All though i tend to have plenty of vegetarian days in my week i do enjoy meat/fish/chicken from time to time.

3. Do you believe in Heaven?

Yes i do:) Can't wait to get there!

4. Have you ever come close to dying?

Unfortunately....yes I have, 3 and a half years ago in a car accident. But miraculously I didn't...I'm grateful for it:)

5. What jewelry do you wear?

Earrings, bracelets and rings and a necklace from time to time depending on the outfit

I don't know. I have plenty of favourite times of the day...but I'm crazy bout sunrise and sunset and also late at night when all is peaceful

7. Do you eat the stems of broccoli?


8. Do you wear makeup?

I do, but I'm not particularly fond of make up. I enjoy wearing it, but am grateful for weekends when i can go the whole day without:)

9. Ever have plastic surgery?

Nope, don't think i ever will. Considered it for a while to get rid of the scar on my ankle after the accident, but it faded with time and isn't so bad now, so I've changed my mind

10. Do you color your hair?

From time to time. Currently it's light at the bottom with red/black/copper highlights

11. What do you wear to bed?

PJ's!!!! I looooooove Pj's and would wear them all day and every day if i had the chance....especially winter pj's. and then i have sexy pj's to wear in summer time *wink*
