Second half

15 Jul

I always seem to have more things to say in the second half of the year.

It’s as if I take 6 months to recover from December, which is normally when I stop writing.

Or maybe the first six months are always the busiest, hence having no time to write.

Or maybe I just don’t feel like writing for the first six months of the year.

Whichever it may be.  I might be around more often again.

Who knows?….


Rush rush rush….

10 Dec

Dear Readers,

I don’t know about everyone else but I’m good and ready for this year to hurry up and end now.  Well, except for the last 2 weeks of this year, that is.

The past few weeks at my office have been absolutely crazy.  We’ve been getting our last few shipments in and sending them out at a hectic pace and little old me has been in the middle of all of it….hence the resounding silence on my blog.

We’re finally slowing down a bit, but I’m honestly so tired that I can’t get myself to do more than stare at my PC screen.  I’ve also developed a bit of a cold (why now!?!).

So I’ll be in hiding for the foreseeable future.  I’ll try to continue with my 30 Days meme as soon as I’m on holiday.

Meanwhile, bear with my silence as I ride out the last waves of 2010.


So maybe I was wrong.

1 Jun

That’ll teach me to put any sort of faith in what I’m feeling at the moment.

Seems that being pregnant has messed with my head and emotions more than I realised….turns out I’m not all that depressed after all.  I was just having a bad day. Go figure.

My totally miserable mood of Wednesday faded into oblivion on Thursday.  I got so much attention on my birthday that I couldn’t help smiling and feeling loved.  Thanks to everyone for all your well wishes 🙂

I got a bunch of awesome gifts.  My mom gave me a George Foreman grill (by request), a close friend gave me a spa voucher (yayness!),  another friend gave me the Paramore Final Riot! CD….and my darling Hubby bought me all four books in the Twilight series!!

I’ve become obsessed with the whole Twilight saga. I can’t get the images from the movie or the theme song out of my head.  I’ve had the books for 4 days and I’ve already finished reading the first two. (having to stop occasionally, as I can’t read with so many tears in my eyes)  I’ve always lived myself very much into whatever story I’m reading at the time, a trait that seems to have gotten more pronounced the older I get.  It’s almost as if I can feel what the characters are feeling at the time…hence my endless tears while reading New Moon.  Anyway…..

I’m glad I’m feeling better though. Being so depressed is exhausting, even if it only lasts a few days.  I much prefer being happy and laughing.  I even ended up making it to Bloggirls on Saturday.  It was great to see Philly_Girl and Angel again, though Ruby and I arrived just too late to see Tamara as well.  It was cool to meet Sass, Melissoo and Boldly Benny as well…hope to see you guys at the next event!

The rest of my weekend was basically spent reading or sleeping, which is quite sad really, though I doubt my current routine will be changing much until I’ve devoured every last page of the Twilight saga.

I may need medical help to cure this obsession……

Friday Combo

17 Apr

My thanks to my friends at Domkop for this idea.

Everyone knows that you don’t really work on a Friday, especially if you have all kinds of other interesting things to look at.  I do a fair amount of browsing in a week and I often find really cool sites which I promptly bookmark.  But why keep all of that to myself when I could share it with all of you. So without further ado, here are my fav sites for the week 🙂

1. I love finding new places in SA to go to.  I’m like a tourist in my own country, looking for ways to learn and experience more of our diverse culture.  Which is why I’m so happy I found Dinokeng:

The name Dinokeng is derived from the languages of the baTswana and baPedi people who traditionally inhabited the area. Meaning “a place of rivers”, Dinokeng lies in the catchment area of two rivers that flow into the Olifants and Limpopo rivers and on to the Indian Ocean. In African culture, river sources have sacred significance and their confluences are believed to hold healing powers.

It’s only about 45min drive from Joburg and there is so much to do and so many places to stay that I barely know where to start.  I can’t wait to go explore!

2. Voting day is just around the corner in South Africa as is evident by the hundreds of political ads on radio and TV.  Many people are still very undecided as to who they should vote for.  In reply to this dilemma, Mail and Guardian Online have set up the Pole Predictor to help you make your decision.

3. I’m a die-hard cricket fan who hates being at work when all the good matches are on.  Luckily, I came across Cricbuzz a little while ago.  It gives ball by ball updates of the match in Twitter style posts.  Everything is updated live, so I don’t miss a moment of the match. Guess what I’ll be doing from 12:30 today 🙂

4. On the subject of cricket, the Indian Premier League (IPL) started off with a bang yesterday by way of a street carnival in Cape Town.  This was just the beginning of six weeks of tremendous Twenty20 action, the details of which are available on the Official Website of the Indian Premier League. Anything from teams and schedules to a fantasy league is available here. They even have a mailing list and a YouTube channel!

5. I love reading about stupid people (possibly because it makes me feel smarter). My article of the week has to be this one. Now I’m a very competitive person and will argue my point to the extreme. But I would never put my own life in danger just to prove a point. Maybe I’m just not dedicated enough….

Have an awesome weekend everyone!!
