A Dare To All Other Grannies

I got up early this morning and took my doggie, Lulu for a walk. 

When I logged into facebook, I got a wonderful surprise – my Presidential Director posted a congratulations note on my wall – I got the “award” of Mannatech Enroller of the Week – Wow!! It just goes to show that it always pays to put in just a little bit more effort.
We then had a KLS (Kimberley Listings Services) meeting with all the principals of the different estate agencies in Kimberley and I must admit, it definitely wasn’t one of my favourite things that I did today.

After the meeting, I went to Mugg and Bean for a much needed savoury muffin and bottomless coffee. My husband had the green tea surprise.
Back at my office I also got a tea surprise - the Manna Tea had arrived – yippee!! The Manna Tea is part of a 30 day fats challenge that I organised. Every participant uses Manna Tea for 30 days and the one who loses the most weight wins R2000. We are 19 participants and are having a ball via what's app.

I was also my grandkids taxi today. I picked Chloe and Zanne up from after care and Keagan from Landsdiens (Land Service).

Instead of going to the trim park this evening, I decided to see if I could still skip – I was a serious "skipper" in my younger days :-)

I started skipping next to the swimming pool. It wasn’t long before my husband came outside to see what was going on – he thought I fell into the pool, because of all the noises that was coming from outside.

I managed to skip 250 times, nearly had a heart attack and pretty sure that I will not be able to walk tomorrow, but I am very proud of what I managed to accomplished.

So now this is a dare to all the grannies out there – lets see who can match or beat my record - GO, GRANNIES GO!! :-)

It's A Blessing To Be A Grandma

Today I realized again what a blessing it is to be a granny and to have the privilege of spending wonderful quality time with my grandchildren. Keagan the eldest has his Grade 7 farewell tonight and he looks so handsome, after he had me shopping for 3 days solid.
Chloe received a medal after passing her first ballet exam. Now I have to learn those same steps, but I can see she is on the brink of giving up on me -her excuse being, I am not trying hard enough and those “nobbles” (bunions) on my feet is the reason I can not do ballet.
After being diagnosed with diabetes, I changed my eating habits completely, so now when the family brings out snacks, Zanne, who is only 2 years old will jump up hide all the snacks (for her own gain) then she will turn around and say: “Ouma, you are not allowed to eat this, you will die.”
I realized being diagnosed with diabetes is not what I expected, but it is Gods way of showing me that I must change my lifestyle. After finding out that I am sick, I am…

This Granny Can Still Play Rugby

This weekend was an extremely busy weekend in Kimberley - it was the GWRU 130 year’s reunion. All the living GWRU players were here to enjoy the festivities. I think this festivity attracted even more people than the very popular Gariep Festival did in August.
Keagan had 2 friends over for the weekend and they wanted to play rugby but needed another player, so I volunteered. His friends thought I was joking and not one of them wanted to be on my side. They voted Matthew to be my partner but after 5 minutes they all wanted to be my partner :-) I could still run, tackle and drop kick and they just could not stop me.
After a broken nail and what felt like a cracked rib I left the field, but it felt great to see my 13 year old grandkid looking at me with love and pride and his friends thinking I am a really cool granny. We also came across a photo if Keagan, 9 years ago in stepping Stones pre-primary. I then just realised again how quickly they grow up and that I have to spend even more …

Sometimes Old People Fart When They Exercise

I got up this morning with a major headache, thinking I will never get through the day, but I had an early show house, so I rushed to make a biltong platter. While at the show house, I remembered that I had another show house at 11am and needed another platter. I managed to make a delicious mini sandwich platter faster than Speedy Gonzales.
The tenant at my second show house is Heidi De Wee, a lovely lady that sells beautiful ball gowns and wedding dresses. I promised her that she could make my ball gown when I go to Las Vegas in April next year, for the Mannafest.
After my showhouses I took a buyer out to see two properties and only afterwards did I find out that he could actually only buy for half the price of what the properties I showed him was worth – aarrgghh
After all this I finally had a chance to go for lunch with my husband at Mugg & Bean.
Later this evening I arranged a workout session at our local trim park. Two of my grandkids joined me. Grandkids definitely give you…
