Hello Ameezing Friends, its been long hey?! And I miss you. It’s funny to say there really hasn’t been time over the last few weeks for this little thing called blogging, but there reeeally hasn’t been. Shame. There’s a few things I have been wanting to talk to you about, some I’ll come back to and some, have kind of dissolved in a moment in time, but I still wish we’d had a chin wag about them.
I’ve gotten more responsibility at work and the lessons I have learnt from that, one of the top ones being ‘Confidence’. Confidence assures, explains, sells, fixes, keeps calm and carries on. You can never have enough confidence. Or double-sided tape. The terribly tragic death of Amy Winehouse. The opening of the Rosebank Gautrain (there’s now a train running underground virtually right outside my front door. Ameezing). Being broody, since this post about love and divorce, I have discovered a new-found freedom in honesty here. Even if it’s a little scary. More about babies and divorce to come (‘Oh no she di-ent’). Super excitement about a little Cape Town getaway with Mr Ameezing next week. I’m a Joburger through and through, I work too much, stress alot and get a kick out of violently beautiful sunsets, but Cape Town is my secret crush. One I will never act on, but sometimes fantasize about. So I am really looking foward to a little flirting session next week.
I took this lantern picture in Thailand in January whilst on the back of a scooter, with Mr Ameezing expertly navigating the traffic (helmets? In Thailand? Never!) We stopped at a traffic light and I glanced up to see a sky of lanterns. I look at this photo often, to remember that moment and the ocean of feelings it came with.
