So today I'm turning *gasp* 27, and once again i realised that in truth I'm still young. Yes, we don't know what will happen and we have no idea how long we'll still be around, but i do know that in the scheme of things 27 is still very young.
In 27 years I've certainly come a long way from the little green eyed girl who wouldn't stop talking, singing and showering the world with her little smiles. hmmmm.....wait, i still have green eyes, I still talk too much, I love singing and I still shower the world with smiles.....but these days my eyes are filled with a lot more knowledge and sadly also a touch of sadness. Because I no longer believe that nothing bad will ever touch me, and I no longer believe that I'll forever be safe.
But don't worry, those green eyes are also filled with gratitude, love, joy and lots of happiness. I am blessed beyond comprehension. I have a fantastic life, a wonderful family, a great job, awesome friends and most of all I have a heavenly Father who keeps me safe in His arms, with a promise that He'll never let go. And then I can't help to think that maybe those little green eyes aren't filled with sadness, but rather wisdom, compassion for others and understanding. Come to think of it.....nope, no sadness;)
I love my life, and I'm grateful for the opportunities I've had so far. For the chances I've grasped with both hands, even if some of them weren't that successful in the end. So here's to you Ruby! Happy, happy birthday......let's hope there'll be plenty more:)
Well, Me :PCause we all know I'm a princess:P Please don't mess with me dude, my fitches (fairy bitches) will stop you!

In the last 8 and a half years you have become my second mother. When i first moved to jhb 4.5 years ago (can you believe it's been that long????) you guys offered to let me stay in your house as part of your family while i find my feet and look for a proper place to stay. And even before that, while i was at uni, i used to drive to jhb once a month for a visit, as my own parents were too far away to make regular visits like that.
I lived with you for 6 months at minimum rent, which i insisted on as you wouldn't accept any money from me at first. I became your other daughter, an older sister and a comrade and confidant and most of all I became part of the family:) My parents were grateful that I wasn't living in the big bad city all on my own. You and my mom are so much alike that sometimes I find the resemblances uncanny.
Even after I moved out and until this very day I still join your family for dinner twice a week, I come home to a sunday lunch, I spoil the 3 cousins like they are my little sisters and I enjoy sharing my heart with you and my plans with my uncle. I know that I'm welcome at any time of the day or night and that you don't mind if i just pop in for a cup of coffee when i need a bit of advice or just a hug because my Mommy is so far away.
I love you guys so much, and I'm grateful for family like you in my life:) Happy birthday again darling! I love you!!!
P.S. I wanted to upload a pic of darling aunty K, but it seems blogger is having PMS today...blegh!
I even understand the fact that current prepaid users should come into a Vodacom outlet to register their sim card. What I don't understand though, is why on earth current vodacom users who are on contract need to come in and register their sim cards. You're kidding me right?? I mean, when i applied for the contract I had to give you a copy of my ID, a utility bill as proof of residence, my full names(which is silly since you already have a copy of my ID) and a whole bunch of other things. Now why on earth would I need to come into a Vodacom outlet to give you copies of documents and a list of information you've already got?
