Driving lessons - update

'Dude, like seriously.... Move!!!!!'- in the streets of Whk

Its Wednesday

Hiya, so I have had 2 lessons with my driving instructor and I survived. As did the car, the other drivers and my sanity. I have paid for 5 lessons to start and he thinks I will need 15 before we can consider going for my drivers licence. I think 15 is about right. I have that much confidence in my ability to steer.

That being said...... I swear other cars act like they were born drivers and came out the womb with a car and some papers (very painful thought-ouch!!!!!). I keep having to remind myself that EVERYONE started off learning and everyone has been where I am. And I should just ignore the hooting and overtaking. Even if it was somebody's 90 year old gramma who gave me the bird and overtook me in her little old yellow beetle (lies..just for dramatic effect).

I (secretly) like driving. I like knowing that at the end of this journey I can be free and on the open road and go on road trips but in real life I can go to the store to buy some bread and milk. But still I will be able To drive myself to the store. That's the point. The freedom to drive to the furthest shop across town just to get some milk and bread. coz now I got's my licence and now I can.

Just need more confidence, more hours and less people on the road then I will be a perfect driver.

Keep your fingers crossed. And Say a Prayer.

Joy, Love and Yellow Beetles

Current Situation - driving lessons

'New Beginnings start after something old ends'.- Anon

Happy Saturday y'all

So This Saturday afternoon, I will be back in front of a wheel after 10 years (wont mention that one time in India when I drove around the block for half an hour - trying not to bump a cow or monkey).

Yep, yours truly passed her learners and now I am starting my lessons.

Will be back in a few hours to update how it all went.

So excited and scared at the same time but I hear driving is like riding a bike you don't ever forget how to do it.

Nothing really changes about driving.

Lets do this!!!!!!

Peace, Love and Cars

Happy 1 June everyone

So we are going into winter and boy can I feel it. Its not gonna be pretty!!! I don't do Namibian winters. Cold and dry? Not for me. 

Anyways, below are pictures of Maya and her hair. The first is what we could do if she allows us and the rest is what the lady at her daycare did her us. We asked her if she could plait or do anything with the hair so that it can be a neat, tidy style (protective) for a few weeks, and This is what we got. Its been a week now and its going strong. 

My bantu knots'd girl

Neat and tidy

Peace (with my sis B)

Stunna shades. Yes that jersey says Mischief Maker!!!!!

I like this style for a number of reasons; we used pantyhose instead of cotton so the hair breathes a bit and it's not so tight. Come wash day which will be end of this week, I can easily get to the scalp. This is also possible for oiling her scalp - we are using pure coconut oil. And this style shows off her face more. she just looks so different. 

We will prolly just do this till her hair is long and she allows us at home to work it. My little Diva.

Peace, Love and June month
