Anyone who's visited my folk's home in Heidelberg would know that the signal is almost non-existent which leads to one sounding like they're cussing and the parent control has been activated when speaking on the phone#problematic! So, to try conduct a skype call is almost impossible, thank goodness my younger sisters Motshidisi and Modiehi, have managed to sort that out and now I can skype with my folks#YAY
Our first skype call happened not so long ago and apparently, my dad came running upstairs when he heard I was on skype#cute. My mom on the other hand couldn't look at me as she claimed I looked sad and FAT!!#lol!! She said she couldn't see my eyes...yes, I have picked up some weight but goodness didn't think it was that bad. By the way, that was my mom's way of telling me she misses me#lol. My mom and I have a rather interesting relationship but its definitely evolved for the better over the years and I must say, I was always the one that made it almost impossible for us to get along. I was always ready to attack her and had my defences up#poormom#lol Thanks to a little bit of growing up, I have become a better daughter and our relationship has gotten so much better. With that said, she sent me an email the other day and this is how it read#lol

Hope you are keeping well that side. There is a certain colleague of mine who requested me your email address saying he wants you to buy some stuff for him over there. His name is
Keep well and love you!
With that said, I find myself feeling a tad sad after these skype chats with my family especially with it being school holidays and all the siblings being home. It so happend that this past weekend was our annual family weekend away and they went to Sun City this year and I felt sad missing out on that. I told my one friend this and he was like, you're in AMERICA and they're in Sun City, what could you possibly be missing out on?!?! My response, was it doesn't matter where my family was, it was not being with them that saddened me. I'm sure I'm like the only 27yr olds that still goes on holiday with her folks#lol.
If I hadn't mentioned that the email was from my mother,you would've guessed it was from some random person right?! Anyway, we've reached a point where we understand each other and I love how close we've gotten over the years. My mom is one of the sweetest and most caring people you'll ever come across, she is AMAZING and I love her more than all the words in all the books in all the world#whydidigetmarried.
Things I miss about home...
My brother & cousin#sweetest & coolest dudes#fact!
Rocky, we've had him for 13yrs now...aging#sadface! You should see my dad trying to play with him, he looks sooo uncomfortable, funniest thing ever#darkies & pets#LMAO
Our Helper Ousi Lettie, she did my laundry. I must admit, doing laundry sucks!! Give me dishes anyday#lol
I miss my parents painfully, my bible study cell group, my friends, hot wings from Chicken Licken and some peanut free chocolate#lol Popeyes chicken is good but has nothing on the hotwings from Chicken Licken#lol
Some totally useless information, I've just come back from the post office to send a parcel to my family and it cost me $86 for shipment#smh The shipment was more expensive than some of the items I bought#smh
