You know you had a good holiday when you take off your cardi and peeling skin puffs into the air like a snowy cloud, wafting gently to the ground. Yessir, I spent some time in the hot Namibian sun last week, diving into a hippo and croc infested pool.
Of course, when I saw ‘dive’ I mean ‘ease gently’ and when I say ‘hippo and croc infested pool’ I mean ‘an area of the Okovango carefully fenced off from anything dangerous’.
The world’s only hippo and croc diving pool at Ngepi, on the Okovango in Namibia

As a knitter you might think my hobby is knitting. It’s an easy mistake to make but let me assure you that YOU ARE WRONG. Sweet, sweet yarn is my true addiction; much to my boyfriend’s…
Thanks to my knitting guru for introducing me to this wonderful musical piece of weirdness. Catchy too!
As the holidays draw nearer, I feel less like this:
And more like this:
TWO WEEKS BABY!
It turns out, they’re a real, well known phenomenon! For the longest time I thought they were a weird glitch in my eye and I could never quite build up the courage to see an optometrist and have a rambling discussion about the weird floaty things I sometimes saw.
Now I know – it’s not just me!
Aside from the narrator sounding deathly dull and mechanical, this is a really interesting TED talk – and for me, quite the revelation. It’s pretty cool actually.
I love John Oliver. I loved him in Community:
I loved him as a correspondent on Jon Stewart:
May I present to you: my favourite thing on the internet
Today was going to be a good day. I’d leave early. Be Super Productive. Get a pedicure. Pack for the cruise tomorrow. Be awesome.
And my plan started well: I left home at 7.20am (calm, serene in my timeliness) instead of 8.15am (running, gulping coffee, forgetting lunch). The petrol light went on almost as soon as I pulled out of the driveway, but why worry about that because at this time of day I’d zoom into work, zip into a petrol station, and zap into the office, all before 8am.
UNTIL. I forgot in my naivety that I am CURSED to arrive at the office at 8.50m NO MATTER WHAT TIME OR ROUTE I TAKE .
