Its not quite the end of 2016, and as far as blogging much this year goes; a record low has been reached. I feel like I have been in a vacuum for a while and as I have ticked a few boxes as I have chugged along I feel like I have some breathing space … Continue reading Time Traveling: Memoirs from the future – 2016
So having been in Wellington for almost 4.5 months, one would expect that I have been real busy and I have been; real busy working… I haven’t seen much. Being alone in a new country is exciting in its own way, but you want to wait for your people to arrive so you can share … Continue reading Time Travelling: Memoirs from the Future – A few solo missions
Dear Diary, Today is not my birthday. But it was on Wednesday and I feel like every year just gets more and more awesome. A colleague was in a state because she is turning 30 next week. "30 is so old", she says. Gosh, that made me feel like I have one foot in the … Continue reading Dear Diary: Happiest Born Day to me
Dear Diary, So here is Part 2. I can get carried away sometimes and super surprised I have managed to keep this pretty succinct. I ended off with June, 6 months done and dusted. I still sit with my mouth gaping at how quickly this year has actually passed. My God it is like we blinked … Continue reading Dear Diary: The Awesome 2014 Part 2
I like to make a habit of reviewing things. What was cooking in the pot that was the year that just went by. Sure I post every Monday where I do a slight review of the week.

It was titled Eluding Illusions and this is kind of part 2. Well sort of. But when I go back … Continue reading Scrambled Rambles: Eluding Illusions – Part 2
Dear Diary, I spent the last not sure how many days taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the Natal South Coast, San Lameer to be more specific. My heart waited months for the time to come and when it did, it sang a million songs of awesome. I love the ocean and I … Continue reading Dear Diary: Got a little Sand between my toes
Dear Dad, Happy Birthday. Your age still eludes me. I can only assume you would have been 65, or thereabouts. Every year I think about you on this day, but today I thought I would write you. Your birthday is oddly enough the one in the family that I actually remember. Must be because it … Continue reading A Letter for Papp-ah
I have always loved writing. Since I can remember, it has always been something I have enjoyed. I am unhappy when I am not jotting something down. In school I loved it, and I recall getting called in for a bad mark on a piece I wrote about a Boy who got all sorts of … Continue reading Blogging: Why I have come to love it.
So today wasn't a day of love. Goodness gracious. But it was any other day. Because that is what this day is. It is Thursday, 14 February 2013. Last Year we gave Valentine's Day a skip and this year we did too. Really, can't do it. For a while george and I would buy each … Continue reading The Day of Love: How about showing yourself some?
