Post Holiday Pinks

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’.

On cookies and swimming costumes

There’s nothing I love more than baking. Except, maybe, eating what I’ve baked. There’s also nothing I love less than looking sadly at my swimming costume; worrying more about covering up than showing off. So with a family holiday near the Okavango around the corner, and a fresh batch of chocolate fudge cookies out the oven, I was indeed stuck between a rock and a hard place.

You know those floaty things you see sometimes out the corner of your eye?

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 finally understand why Joburgers are so angry

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 .
