Tips:
– If you add tomatoes, add them raw. The taste is so much more fresh 🙂
– Make sure the pan is very hot, before you add the omelette mixture.
– Let the egg mixture stand for a moment or two, before adding to the pan. It will rise a bit more that way.
– Mix the eggs and baking powder with a whisk, to let the air in.

Enjoy this! It is our go to dinner for nights when making food is just not on the top of our priority list.

Love!

Resolution update #1!

So as today is Sunday, I probably have to update you all on how I am doing on my resolutions….. Hmmmm…

 

  1. Write a little every day! Poems, flash fiction, fiction. Anything. Just write! Ummmm, yeah that didn’t work! I did write a poem today thought, or well three lines of a poem!
  2. Blog every day!! That semi-worked, until I decided I deserve Wednesdays of and suddenly grew lazy on Thursday! So no more off days! Blogging every day!
  3. Journal everyday, or every two days. But VERY regularly! This I did!! Yeah me….
  4. Stop fighting for no reason and admit when wrong…….. I think this worked, I handled all approaching conflict with an open mind and I think it worked!! Although me and sis did have a little ‘spat’ =]
  5. Read every day. Of course!!!!
  6. Postcross and pen pals, more regular!! Five letters and postcards still to be posted on my desk. Let’s make that an obvious no.
  7. Eat a bit healthier Semi worked, I didn’t eat junk food if that counts!
  8. EAT BREAKFAST!! I think I missed one day! Very good for me!
  9. exercise at least every other day ummmm, let me get back to you on this one! =]
  10. Go to bed by ten pm. I was in bed by ten most nights! Does that count?
  11. NO junk food… [I’m going to struggle here] YES!!!! So proud of myself!
  12. ONE sweet per week Two… But that is better than regular!
  13. Cut out ALL the negativity in my life, get rid off the ‘bad’ people, draw the ‘good’ ones closer. Almost there, just need to identify the bad ones!!
  14. Stop being negative!! I think I accomplished this….
  15. Do not suppress emotions. But DO think before speaking.  Done! I spoke my mind and it didn’t result in a fight! it turns out if I re-think something before saying it, it comes out way nicer!! =]

So, that was my resolutions….

I promise to give you all a journal page tomorrow, I am just way too lazy to take a pic now!! =]

Have a great day! But now it is ten to ten and I have to work tomorrow! =]

It was Bloody Brilliant!!

In case you don’t have me on FB and didn’t read the hundred statuses about me going to watch Harry Potter 7 last night, I went to watch HP7 last night!!!

And the only possible words to describe it is BLOODY BRILLIANT!!!

I had my doubts…. Because a lot of people said it didn’t live up to their expectations, but to me it was amazing!!! But my professional opinion later!

Sister!!

The evening began on the drive, I made us [me and Sis] a mix CD with some chart topping songs which got us straight into a party mood and little could burst my bubble!

Me!!!

When we got to Clearwater Mall we discovered that a whole bunch of new shops opened up since our last visit there and after we got our tickets we went exploring and searched for a great place to have dinner. But before we could even think of dinner Sister discovered Marcels, a FroYo place….

My love for Frozen Yogurt is still to be discovered so I settled for dark chocolate ice-cream while sis enjoyed Vanilla FroYo. The best part of that, except the chocolate, was my Yum card! Its a card where, once it is full of stickers, I get a free small tub of ice-cream! Rewards for eating ice cream??? I’m in!

We then decided on Juicy Lucy for dinner, a sweet lace with the greatest breakfast!! But I decided it was WAY too late for breakfast breakfast, so I decided to order a Bacon Cheesa [rye bread with bacon and YUMMY cheese sauce] while sis ate a bacon and chicken wrap!

I just realized how weird all that sounded as dinner!!! =]

Finally it was time for HP!!

I promise no spoilers!

I loved every moment of the movie…

It was very true to the book, not so very rushed liked the 6th movie, although the time went by WAY too fast, and before I knew I was crying and the movie was done! [If you read the books, you would know why I was crying, if not, I promised no spoilers!]

There was perhaps one part that wasnt in the book, but otherwise every important part was there, they did a great job with filling in the blanks the previous movies created, and what I loved the most was the dialogue, it was unbelievably true to the book!

One thing that I didn’t like, like most people, was the ending! It was very sudden… But it had to happen, other it would’ve been a six-hour movie, or a very vague movie! So kudos to Warner Bros to making it so very amazing!!!

Who watched it already?? What did you think???

Love!

Mahvalize!

Hey!!!

The title is a reverence to a name Kellie recently gave me, a mash-up between Marlize and marvelous [I think] and every time I hear it Rachel Berry sings Pokerface in my head.. [Watch Glee!!!!!]

Wait, while we are on that topic! I want Glee! And Vampire Dairies! And Gossip Girl! AND HARRY POTTER! Sorry I needed to fit that rant in somewhere…

Back to me, the prompt for today is…

Name a few random reasons why YOU are special/great/amazing.

I know I had something similar already, but the point of this challenge is to discover YOU!! =]

And I am taking a leaf out of Erin at Wild Archaic‘s book and making a resolution list…

Why???? Because I need it and who needs to wait until New Year?

  1. Write a little every day! Poems, flash fiction, fiction. Anything. Just write!
  2. Blog every day!!
  3. Journal everyday, or every two days. But VERY regularly!
  4. Stop fighting for no reason and admit when wrong……..
  5. Read every day.
  6. Postcross and pen pals, more regular!!
  7. Eat a bit healthier
  8. EAT BREAKFAST!!
  9. Excercise at least every other day
  10. Go to bed by ten pm.
  11. NO junk food… [I’m going to struggle here]
  12. ONE sweet per week
  13. Cut out ALL the negativity in my life, get rid off the ‘bad’ people, draw the ‘good’ ones closer.
  14. Stop being negative!!
  15. Do not suppress emotions. But DO think before speaking.

Okay…. As a motivation to let this work I will blog about my resolutions every Sunday… Satisfying Sunday? And update you on how I am keeping them!! =]

Enjoy the evening bloggers! =]

One day….

Hey ! ! ! !

I am feeling a but blue today… For no apparent reason! But apparently this means I come up with new ideas…

But before I tell you my great new idea, a prompt…

Day 17…

Things you want to achieve, see yourself do, one day… Basically  it’s a wish list for the future!

Does any one else notice the strange purple flash in the background of the first photo??? I am now baffled as to where that came from and forgot every thing else I wanted to say!!

I realized I should give you a reason for why I may disappear for the weekend…

The one girl I work with is moving into a flat, her first alone ‘home’ and we all volunteered to help her move, also I am hosting a BBQ tomorrow afternoon, with about ten friends, drinking games and some good, solid fun!!! So you will most probably only hear from me on Sunday, but maybe I will post early tomorrow morning before getting the house ‘visit-ready’

Oh yes!! The Idea…

I came up with this well a few minutes ago and haven’t thought it through a lot, like a lot of my ideas…..

After the journal challenge I want to continue with another challenge and I decided to make one up myself again…

Revealing me!

This will be like TRUTH and dare on steroids… I give every single person out there permission to ask me ANYTHING [except my physical address and things that will let you stalk me] and I WILL answer it as honestly as possible. I will remind you about it every now and then and it will start a week after the end of the journal challenge!

I hope it will be a 30 day challenge [if I get enough Q’s] You may ask more than one question, you can comment, mail or FB them to me.

All Q’s will be thrown into a bowl and picked at random, and get answered every morning!!

Hope you all  join in to reveal who I am!!! lol, that sounded odd!

Have a great day weird people of the blog-o-sphere!!!

Random catching up!

*sigh*

I am happy!! =]

But first up… Day 12!

Journal about a song or lyrics that means a lot to you, or that you like a lot!

I choose Pretend from the movie Bandslam. It is one of my favourite movies ever and the song is SOOOOOOOOO pretty!

******************

Almost every one is familiar with the Infatuation by now… Well I went out with him last night, just an informal visit at one of his work friends and it was AMAZING! Every one liked me, he made me feel amazing and I am slowly falling… Deeper and deeper…

But I am still trying VERY hard to guard my heart!

*********************

Remember the ‘there is no talent at work’-line…. Well that haven’t changed, but there is this one guy who likes me… Sweet, but we work together, so it’s a NO-GO!!

*********************

I am STILL owing Holly a guest post! [sorry Girl!] and will try very hard to put it up tonight.

********************

In other guest post related news, I have reached 800 comments!!!!! It is so cool!

********************

NaNoWriMo…. SUCKS!! Week one is gone and I have got….. just under a thousand words. I am so disappointed in me! And anywho, WHAT ON EARTH POSSESSED me to sign up for it??

********************

Lastly, I just want to once more say thanks… To every one reading this blog, caring for me, worrying about me, cheering me on. I adore this. I have a place in my heart for every one of you and when I am one day a succesful writer I will fly all of you here for a week-long South African holiday!

And my sister, I know I bite your head of some days, and am not the most amazing 19-year old around, but you love me still and if I need something I know you will be there for me. You rule sis!!!!!!

**************

Have a great day people!!
