Holidays are never predictable! Or at least this one wasn’t.

To me holidays are really about doing absolutely NOTHING! Perhaps a few things, but more than anything- nothing! And of course- food! Our planed trip was from last Wednesday to Sunday, to Nelspruit as My Knight was working with a international cyclist competing in SA champs! My princess and I were going along for the ride. Of course I knew that it would mean spending time with other people that would be there, that I know and like- all good.

My 4 hour planned reading trip in the passenger seat, was turned into a 4 hour driving position with three small kids in tow! Shoo wee- my princess who always seems to be the smallest, was this time the BIG KID. I think she was even in shock and wandered if she really does want brothers and sisters.

My planned “nothing” turned into serious work! Lol. I did have a few good days of serious bonding with our swiss friends. Our man of the hour actually took first place which was super exciting for my Knight. First time I have seen him cry! In 4 years! When I commented about that, he stated very matter of factly that I had never won a race! Mmmm.

I have now been back for two days, and I feel like I actually need a holiday! A real holiday!

My princess and I after SA champs- just waiting for prize giving!

Officially- the three little monsters!

My princess fell in love with this cat- Pepsi from the guest house we stayed in.

The giraffes at the Mbombela Stadium. Simply magnificent.

  1. Sounds like the race was exciting and your princess had company. Sometimes a holiday can be tiring and it is good to get home and relax!

    • I wish i didn’t have to rush back to the office. But it was nice. xx

  2. Sounds like a very exciting change of scenery rather than a “holiday” 😉 Wow! Congrats on the win – what a wonderful reward for hours of hard work and dedication. Now it is time to plan a real holiday where NO ONE has to lift a finger, except to have fun 🙂 Really nice pics.

  3. That picture in the empty stadium is cool. Makes me want to jump into the photo and run out onto that field!

  4. […] being away last week, my car sat in it’s spot for 5 days without moving. Monday morning I was greeted with the amount […]

  5. I *always* need a holiday after our holidays! Looks like you had fun, 🙂

    • We had a nice time… still need a holiday! Haha. x
