the weekend that was

This weekend I packed my bags, said goodbye to Cape Town and headed for the hills. We went to Beaverlac for an all-girls camping trip and it was wonderful!

This weekend I…

+ Only ate vegetarian food.
+ Swam in a rock pool.
+ Slid down a natural bum slide into a pool.
+ Forced the wonderful Meh to go skinny dipping with me.
+ Played 30 Seconds under the night’s sky.
+ Met an adorably small Jack Russel puppy called “Jack”.
+ Went on a hike with the wonderful Meh, lovely Se and Rah and found a secluded piece of paradise in the mountains.
+ Saw a water snake swim by.
+ Star gazed.
+ Smelt liked sun cream and fire a lot.
+ Had no phone signal.

What did you do this weekend?

baaad energy

ok, so i'm convince that there's some baaad energy following me around at the moment because in the space of one month i've had kidney stones, had problems with my work, had fights with two friends one of which cut me out for good and have been fighting more with the marja.

i thought maybe if i just acknowledged the baaad energy here that maybe it would feel satisfied and then leave me here goes.

me: baaad energy, i know you have your reasons for hanging about but i'm kinda tired of finding myself in less than satisfying situations.please go away. it's not that i don't think you're cool to hang out with (note to readers: don't ever piss off baad energy by making it feel like it's not wanted) i just think maybe we should be a part for a bit. my smile muscles haven't really been worked in a while. i accept that not everyone can have the best time in the world always and that for someone to be super happy balance says another person has to go through some shitty times but i'm ready; i'm totally ready for some good times and a bit of a smile and maybe even a laugh or two. here's hoping you'll find another best friend for February,

me xxx

baaad energy: ok, see ya around.

phew. that was easier than i expected.

here's toa great weekend. i'm going to Beaverlac this weekend and cannot wait! what are your plans?

daily walk on the beach

i'm worknig from home now and while it's super cool to work my own hours i got sick earlier this month so have a bit of a backlog which means i'm super (work) stressed among other stresses.

so when the marja got home we decided to go for a stroll along the beach. we walked all the way to the other end and she had a quick swim before we headed back. as we approached the busier side of the stretch of sand the shark siren went off and suddenly the energy on the beach changed.

it was so eerie just standing there, watching every single person on the beach turn to the water. there was one surfer still in the waves and it was almost as if everyone held their collective breath. he took his time but eventually stood on the shore, walking out of the waves, and the sense of release was palpable.

it's incredible that a creature mostly unseen can create so much fear when it's existence is forced into our minds.

oh. and i like sharks.

the weekend that was

Didn't have the best weekend even though parts of it were really fun.

am trying to learn the art of being on top of social situations. it's tough being friends with people.

this weekend i...

+ partied with the lovely Se
+ felt stupid
+ wasn't a good friend to someone
+ felt annoyed
+ got a free glass of wine
+ stepped outside my comfort zone and it turned out ok
+ had three fights
+ realised how lucky i am to have wonderful Meh in my life
+ realised that when one thing goes wrong they all do

how was your weekend?
hope it was better thatn mine?

on Sunday...

the lovely Se and i caught a train to Muizenberg, walked alongthe beach and chatted. she has just got back from a trip exploring Africa (so jealous) and it was nice to catch up.

then we stopped off at The Ice Cafe in Kalk Bay (they sell the most amazing ice-cream) and i had Pistachio and Romany Cream flavours that really sent shivers along my tastebuds. we sat on the end of the pier in Kalk Bay Harbour and took in the sunshine. it was the perfect day.

Later we got a DVD and made a delcious dinner from the vegetarian recipe book i got for my birthday! will put up pics tomorrow!

ps, I'm going to the cricket today at Newlands! am so excited - Go Proteas!

Happy 2011!

Hello lovelies, sorry I've been so quiet of late. It's been a fiesty, busy, spicy festive season so far. We had a Mexican-themed new year's eve house party and it was phenomenal!

Will tell you all about it soon, but for now hope you're all enjoying this deliciously overcast Cape Town weather.

And that you're supporting The Proteas in the third test match against India. Go SA!
