Daddy daughter day…

Posted: May 9, 2015 in Erin, Family

So, with Nicole away for 2 weeks.. again!!…I promised Erin something different this weekend. 



So we headed off to the Gautrain …


Met the big man himself…

And after some serious shopping with a young 8 year old girl, who was on her element, we came across a Samsung expo.

And boy was this fun…a virtual game on the new curved TV.



..Erin suiting up..(and yes, that is a change of clothes )



…. and the attack begins…..




All in all, a great day all round

6 May 2000….

… was a starting point of a new life.  I stood on the carpeted floor with my two close friends next to me, staring down, what seemed to be a long tunnel, feeling the nerves building as the time grew closer.

In the 6 years prior to this moment, I had faced massive gunfire pinned down behind vehicles, shot in the chest at point blank (thank God for bullet proof vests) and faced angry mobs… and never felt these nerves !!

The moment of truth arrived, and a vision of beauty appeared before me ..

… How I envisaged my future… (BOY WAS I WRONG)



15 years later… here we are, still married and happy. We been through some serious ups and downs as a couple, supporting each other through our darkest personal moments, receiving the bad news we will never have children and being blessed with a miracle baby 8 years ago who lights our lives each moment we look at her.

Happy anniversary my love, here’s to the next 15 !!
