Plan the ultimate celebration for someone close to you. Where is it? Who’s there? What’s served? What happens?

My mom turns 60 on the 10th of July this year. Sadly, there is a BIG downside to this celebration. We live about 13 hours drive apart and there is just no way that we can be together for her birthday. The two of us have never needed a fancy affair to have a good time and my mom, amazing woman that she is, is happy with the smallest thing. If money was no object, this is how her birthday would have gone down:

I would fly her down to Cape Town and on arrival she would be escorted to Table Mountain for lunch. Late afternoon we would check in at the 12 Apostles Spa for 24 hours of luxury and pampering. Just before sunset on the day of her birthday she would get a Harley ride to the Western Province Rugby Union grounds at Newlands, where the Stormers would carry her in like a roman Goddess to where Jamie Bartlett (her date for the evening) would be waiting. Only the finest foods and drinks will be served. For entertainment we will have Eugene Havenga to start off the night while Mandoza will rock out the night with Nkalakatha. My mom has the spirit of an 18 year old, so the party will end as the sun rise over Cape Town. Finally, she will depart on a month long holiday – fully paid – to any destination she may desire. Her gift? Keys to a house at the foot of Table Mountain.

Oi Vey? If only…

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. I am an over thinker par excellence , in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you. If you like it here, please come back, comment and share. If not, let me not waste another second of your time. All I ask is that you respect my space, be constructive and leave negativity at the door. There is enough of that in this world we live in and yes, in my head too sometimes. Not everything here will be liked or agreed with. Some of it will be downright rude, crazy and straight forward. Not everyone will like me and what goes on in my head, but this is my life and my space. Enjoy the ride

    1. Thanks! I’m not sure about the Stormers bit though. Still trying to convert my mom to be Sharkie (like me), but I’m not having any luck there!

Say something, you know you want to!
