Music & Cocktails

This weekend we really enjoyed watching Glastonbury live via our BBC iPlayer. We try to catch the key acts every year, however until this year it was only available once they were on YouTube. We can now watch real time via streaming. On Friday evening we  loved the set by The Pretenders, it is hard to …

Armageddon

This has been a rather eventful few days in South Africa. None of the events were good, in fact it felt a bit like Armageddon. I wouldn't be surprised if the next thing on the agenda of the gods is a Zombie Apocalypse. I refuse to eat brains, I only have a tazer and an axe for defence, and …

Finally An Angel

This has been such a stressful week for me. Like most introverts I do not enjoy change or new situations. I know I do not behave like your typical introvert as I am bolshy and opinionated, but I cringe at people asking me questions about myself or trying to communicate with me if we do not have …

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 …

One for the money, 6 for the show

This week has been busy but productive at least. Norm spoiled me and was such a brilliant support. I really am so lucky. I couldn't work the hours I do without his help in keeping the house running.  On Monday he made dinner for us as Cait was staying the night at Wes. He made …
