Moments In Time

Happy Birthday Chontele
On a beautiful Monday the 19th of October at 2.45pm the story of you embraced my heart. I will never forget that moment in time, there you were in my arms, a face sweeter than sugar skin so delicate and soft your little eyes sparkling up at me, I touched your hand and promised.....I’d love you for eternity!!!

Well my friends yesterday we celebrated our beautiful daughters 30th birthday  it was a truly magical day. All she wanted was a day off relaxing and we gave her just that. My lovely daughter in-law and I decided  a few weeks ago we could all do with a little pampering , so we surprised her with a day out at the Twin Waters Resort for lunch and ended with a lovely Lagoon Day Spa.
Our day spa started with  having our bodies massaged ............this was blissful, our feet said “oh thank you to whoever invented  pedicures we then had a facial that made our skin glow, afterwards we indulged in a fruit and cheese platter washing it down with a little champagne. We laughed and talked about Choni’s growing up years.
A little story Choni remembered was........When she was around 13 years of age she went through a stage of slamming her bedroom door which drove her father crazy. One day he said, please don’t slam your door anymore or I will take it off......Mmm of cause she did....so out with the tools and off that bedroom door came, I remember her running up stairs to me in total shock, saying Mum you have to do something....Dad is taking my door off! I said well sweetheart he did warn you. The door stayed off for 4 days, after much begging and promises of........to never slam her door again, the door went back on, whenever that door.........would accidently slam again she would yell out sorry it was the wind........that door never got slammed again!
My memories of her are endless and precious, still the one I’ll always cherish is that first day she came into my life!  No matter what her age.........she will always be Daddy's little Girl! And our only daughter and through the years my closest friend.

"We love you sweetheart with every beat of our heart"

How about you my friends have you ever been to a day spa!

Always Love In Wendy’s World

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter Wendy. It sounds like a beautiful way to celebrate her birthday, all the girls hanging out and being pampered, bliss. Love the story about the door slamming:) My little one did this too but one day she slammed the door shut and the handle was off so she was stuck and absolutely panicked. She has never slammed the door again but the poor little thing is terrified of being stuck now. xo

Oh Wendy, this is such a delightful tribute to your lovely little girl. I love that story from when she was 13, Dad's are fantastic like that, my Dad would often follow through on a threat too and it certainly teaches you the wrong and right ways a whole lot quicker as a result ;o) Your day together for her birthday sounded sensational. What a lovely Mama you are and it sounds like you have a daughter who is every bit the credit to you also.
Happy Birthday to Choni!
The pic is absolutely gorgeous, I do hope Choni gets to read this post Wendy xo

My friend and I went for a traditional Rasul steam chamber. It is where they use Rasul muds to your body and face, then you relax on heated seats. The mud gently detoxes and de-stresses. We both ended up laughing at each other so much that the mud cracked and fell off and neither of us felt like we had a thing done. Those fun memories will last a life time for us.
Sounds like there was lots of fun all round for every one celebrating your daughters 30th. Some great memories for you all too. Love the door story, what a laugh.

Happy Birthday to your daughte! Glad you got some pampering, for sure we should be taking care of ourselves a lot more that we do. We had a very familiar story with out daughter, the door came off in our house also. It's those tales we can recall today that allow us to laugh at incidents that we thought so serious way back then. Take Care SpecialK xx
