In my Kitchen in January 2013

January 1, 2013 in Dinner Divas, In my kitchen

2013? I almost can not believe that 2012 is in the past now. My family and I had a wonderful 2012. My oldest daughter was primaria at her Residence at University. She finished her studies and will be getting her degree in March 2013. She applied for three jobs, totally unrelated to her studies and was invited for interviews for all three and got offers for two out of the three. She started working already and she is saying that she is doing her dream job. 

My second daughter was on the House Committee at her Residence at University and is on The University’s Student Council for 2012-2013. She finished her studies and got her degree in December and was accepted for honors so she will be doing her honors in Bio-Diversity and Ecology in 2013. 

My son was naughty and was not allowed to go out at all in the last term of 2012. The only thing he was allowed was to study and he ended up in the Top 10 of his year! 

Although my husband had to close his own business, he got a very good position in the corporate world. 

I had the great opportunity of taking part in Dinner Divas and I thoroughly enjoyed it and met some wonderful people! 

I am convinced that 2013 is going to be a great and exciting year for me and I wish the same to all of you. 

It is time for an In my Kitchen post. The IMK challenge is hosted by Celia from the blog Fig Jam and Lime Cordial.

In my kitchen are these colourful table placemats with South African towns and pictures on, another gift from my children.


In my kitchen is this cute Letterpress cookie set and I cannot wait to start playing with it but we have too many cookies left over from Christmas still. (This was another Christmas gift from my husband).
