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 …

Spirits and our Ancestors

Last weekend seems like it was a lifetime ago. A lot has happened. On Tuesday we were sitting in our office when we heard a series of explosions outside, it was so loud the building felt like it shook! We are on the 4th floor and we all raced to the window to see if …

The Count Down

I am stressed. I tend to not sleep when I am stressed which only compounds my stress. I am stressing over several things. I am struggling a bit financially and just do not seem to get on top of it. I am stressing over that as I hate being in debt. Norm is having issues with …

Bats & Ninjas

We had the most amazing weather all of last weekend and it continued on throughout the week! It is as if it is suddenly summer. Of course with Cape Town the weather can flip quickly so we will see how long it lasts. Our office is freezing and I sit under a vent so I'm …

She has a character that is very prevalent in her work and which I strongly identify with. Ana's website says: "There is a strong character, constantly featured in …

Haunted

As promised I have some pictures of our Halloween party last weekend to share with you all. We had such fun. It was held in the back room at Spiro's in Hout Bay. We had some very large parties in the past in our homes where lots of things got damaged, broken or barfed on and we …

Sweetest Hangover

I had such a fabulously overindulgent weekend last weekend - it was laden with Sugar and Wine. Therefore when I woke on Monday feeling like I had a hangover I wasn't sure whether to blame the sugar, the wine or both. I had intense pain in my hip and felt fuzzy headed and fluey. I only had a half …
