Ok, so our Kitchen Tea / Tool Party was held on the 14th of April 2012..
Saturday morning the initial plan was to take my sister and her daughter shoe shopping, as we still needed shoes for them for the wedding..
so I waited and waited because Lelanie(MOH) was supposed to pick me up at 9am.
OH BOY!! We got dressed and then my sis ‘messed-up’ my make-up!! 😡
Off we went..
As if that wasn’t enough humiliation, we were told we still need to get some meat and drinks for the party and we CANNOT wait in the car. And there they stop at a small shopping centre we call Rant-en-Dal Spar, where we usually go to buy bread and milk every other day, where I used to work some years ago, where people KNOW us!!
Straight to the butchery, I had my little treasure box with a note that said “Condom Kitty” so we got a lot of second and third and fourth looks!! At the butchery we had a nice chat with a really friendly elderly man, and he was actually the first person that told us that getting married is bliss, that married life is “LEKKER”.
Then we were off (by foot) to the liquor store..
on our way, we collected some more finances for our “condom kitty”..
Waiting in the cue, someone asked us if we were on our way to Greensleeves.. hahahah (now for those of you who don’t know, Greensleeves is a medieval themed restaurant on the Westrand, where you can also dress up and join in festivities the medieval way, which also includes a show)
I showed the lady our kitty and told her we’re getting married and those two (pointing to Lelanie & Corné) have made us dress up and follow them wherever they go. She laughed, and offcourse all the customers in the shop joined in.. BUT.. our kitty got some extra bucks!!
It was at Rocky Aloe Lodge, right next to and looking over the Krugersdorp Game Reserve.
Lelanie and her team of helpers really brought in the medieval theme with all the decorations.. My gran did an amazing job with the castle and throne..
It was sooooo nice to have fi there as well.. he even got some pressies of his own, we had to guess what was inside and if wrong had to take a sip of mixed drinks (my sis went around and begged a little of each guest’s drink!!)
Fi seemed to guess all the kitchen-stuff right,so everyone joked about who really works in the kitchen in our house!! lol..
As we got engaged by ourselves last year, Lelanie made him ask me again infront
of everyone.. That was soooo sweet… he went on his knees and presented me with a white flower (one we picked from the dam earlier in the day) so offcourse I said YES again!!
We opened some more pressies, and then just enjoyed the rest of the party!!
Just a very warm hearty thanks to EVERYONE who made this day so special.
