Friday again...

I cant believe that its Friday again! Phew, where did this week go?

I can probably answer that...I spent the first 3 days of this week in bed with the bad flu that I Blogged about last Friday. I can safely say that I have never had such bad flu before. To prove this to you, I will mention the following...

...I had to get an injection in my bum...

Point proven.

I am still not feeling too great, but I will live, Im sure you have all breathed a huge *sigh* of relief hey? :-) I mean c'mon, what would your day be like without reading my Blog? :-)

Now, for some up to date news...

Ryan decided last night that he was going to be the most amazingly wonderful person (as he always is) and when we got home and I expected him to go to gym and then go to study, he said to me that he was taking me to dinner at John Dory's Fish & Grill restuarant in the Pav. It was such a lovely surprise and it was so lovely to spend some time together, we really needed it...some special "us" time. Everyone needs it!


We were supposed to be going to a braai and jacuzzi tonight at our friends place, but its been moved to tomorrow, so now we need to find something else to do tonight...any ideas?

Ryan is taking his brother to a car show tomorrow...Im not too interested in cars, so Im glad he has a brother to do these type of things with! But even if he didnt, I would go with him, Im cool like that...

Loadshedding (see meaning of this undesirable word in previous Blog entry) reared its ugly head this morning. I woke up just before the alarm was supposed to go off thinking that its mighty quiet in here - (I thought this because normally the fan makes enough noise to con you into thinking its going to detach itself from the roof and land on your head while you slumber blissfully unaware)... and then I realised with a slow horror that there was no electricity. This means no coffee, no hot shower, no lights, no hairdryer...you get the picture. It did come on at 6.30, which left me with a half an hour to fit all the above in! Needless to say I got out of bed late, because at 5.30am nobody wants to fiddle around in the dark tripping over whatever I decided could stay strewn across the floor last night...when this includes the likes of shoes, clothing and prehaps even a hairbrush, it could make for a dangerous morning!

On the way to work this morning we only got taken out by a taxi, while the driver decided that he would much rather sms/text someone on his phone instead of drive! It was not a nice experience for so early in the morning. For my overseas friends reading this, see below for a cartoon version of the typical South African taxi and driver. No cute little "yellow cabs" like you see in the movies. SA taxi's create a whole new meaning...

Im at work now with so much work to do, so I had better get going and do some real work!

Hi Aubrey...thanks, Im much better now, so thats ok :-)
A braai is what South Africans call a barbeque, except we actually make a fire out of charcoal/wood and cook the meat on it, I will post a pic so you can have a lookee :-)
Yes, the taxi is a very frightening thing in SA!
