I have been full of a horrible head cold all week so have been very unproductive, un-enthusiastic and generally YouTubey and blobby. Finally feeling a bit more human today and thought I’d share the video link below because it popped up in my feed recently. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjvI0cqhan4
(So I started writing this post in Feb of this year… Can’t believe it’s already September!) I auditioned for and am now a member of the Durban Symphonic Choir. A long-standing dream come true! Well, I’ve always wanted to be part of a choir; I just never thought it would be a classical symphonic choir.…… Continue reading Choral adventures in 2019
Feeling great, still gymming at least 3 times a week, mostly 5 times a week. The only thing holding off an extra good transformation is weekends of eating out 😅 but well pleased with where I’m at.
Africa for life, it seems. 😄 A planned UK pound-earning stint has been clipped to a stand still by the impending increase in the “health surcharge”. GBP2000 is a whole lotta dosh when converted to ZARs. Ah well, all things tend to work out in the end, so, wherever and whatever we end up, that’s…… Continue reading Nope

The crazy thing is that it’s…… Continue reading Mothers Day – it’s okay now

Wow! Can you imagine how fast time will seem to pass in 10 years time!? Seriously, the mind boggles. I remember booking a holiday, once, about six months in advance and it felt like it took forever to arrive. Now, I feel like I can happily wait for some occasion-to-come that’s well over a year…… Continue reading It’s May. Updates.
That is how I’m beginning this year. Looking inwards and looking upwards. Sound selfish? Perhaps. The truth is, over the last few years, I’ve looked forward to a range of things/goals/places/people that just haven’t become real, haven’t materialised, or have just let me down. My forward/outward looking self is tired. Metal-fatigued, ya know? When you’ve…… Continue reading Looking inwards (and upwards)
