Butterfly Mode

I recently mentioned that Norm and I are tentatively starting to entertain again. That decision seemed to open up the doors of the universe as we are now getting so many plans our diary is back to back. That is too much of an extreme for me as I also need downtime to recharge but …

Love Language

You know how buzz words bubble up and everyone then adopts them and becomes an expert on something they had never heard of a week ago? The term "Love Language" is something I have seen flying about for a while now. It just means that even if you may express affection to your significant other …

Tricked

So far we have not had any news on our flights being cancelled and we have progressed our planning as if there has been no Omicron drama bubbling up. Norm has booked a shuttle to take us from Atlanta to Chattanooga. He has also booked our flu shot for next week so that we reduce …

Release

The lockdown and isolation of the last year and a half has been so hard on many of us for a variety of reasons. My anxiety resulted in such feelings of doom that I was convinced that this was the end of life as we knew it and that feeling has proven to be true …

Event Full.

This week has been eventful, some of them good and some of them bad. At midnight on Wednesday the corrupt former president of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, turned himself into the police after weeks of nonsense. Last week, the Constitutional Court found Zuma guilty of contempt of court, in relation to an order to appear …

The Empath’s Output

The Hypocritical Kitten

One thing about keeping a blog is that you often have moments of self realization. Before I write I always read the previous week's blog to remember where I left off. Last week I was having a whinge about clients hiring a specialist (i.e., me!) and then not listening to my advice. Then I proceeded …

Is There A Doctor in the House?

This past weekend was a lovely long 3 day weekend as Monday was Heritage Day in South Africa. It was made even better as Lily and Josh were down for the weekend. I cooked for us all on Thursday but on Friday night Lily was out with her childhood girlfriends for dinner but Josh had …

It’s A Wonderful Day In The Neighborhood

As I write that title I think about the dilemma I often have, who is going to 'get me'. Did the whole world know about Mr Rogers or was he an American only concept? In today's fast paced world Mr Rogers would never succeed. He spoke too slowly, his concept was too simple and would …
