Weekend Learning's

I still remember... why don't you?
I spent this weekend surrounded by love with my family in Swellendam for my big sisters wedding. It was interesting trying to be all hopped up on love when i had a little black raincloud following me around. This is what I learned;
  • It is amazing how constantly cold I feel now that you're gone.
  • "Groaking" is an act of watching people eat food hoping they'll offer you some. I see this sometimes on the plane… it freaks me out! Get your own!
  • Augusta De Mist is the most divine little romantic guest house ever! Loved it! Thank you Michel and Henk it was amazing! Future suiters, take me here please.
  • The wines of Danie de wet and De Wetshof are delicious, I learned a lot here, Sav tells you the region Chardonnay tells you the soil… and I don't like Chardonnay grown in gravel… sour.
  • “Angry, and half in love with her, and tremendously sorry, I turned away.” F. Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby)
  • My family is so amazing… it consists of me, my sister, my mum and dad, my half big sister and here fiancé, my two half brothers, one of them is married with my angel 5 year old niece and the other has a gorgeous girlfriend. Then my dads mad brother and his two crazy girls, my cousins. A grand total of 14 Sampsons! Eish… good times!
  • Sometimes I wish that we could all live in one big house together…
  • I always cry at weddings. So do all the Sampson women in my family, its quite a treat to see us all silently sobbing… then all laughing at each other sobbing.
  • Every woman's heart has different instructions. They're written through her eyes, in her smile, through her actions and in her tears.
  • My big sister made the perfect bride, and her fiancé is the perfect new brother. Now I have three! Lucky much!
  • Random fact, Iguanas can and do commit suicide… I for a moment wanted to be an Iguana when I thought about the prospect of going back to reality hell hole… not feeling the love much back here in joburg, sob.
  • One of the hardest decisions you'’ll ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder… I think the harder problem is when he walks away from you, and you stand, watching and he doesn't look back. Break.
Have a good week there cotton wools.
