Rain Rain go AWAY
It's not that I hate rain - I know our country desperately needs the water, but it spoils the fun of running around outdoors with a camera
I see with nauseating guilt that my last journal entry was from well over one month ago and I have nothing much to report! Oh okay - the weather is turning wintry here at the southern-most tip of Africa and last night our house leaked in many places, making the tiled area at the bottom of the stairs very slippery and it's now covered in soggy newspapers. It also chose to leak directly onto a beautiful Persian Rug I inherited from my parents' flat... in the middle of the night I ran out and threw a towel over it and by morning the white towel was completely discoloured with reds and yellows and greens that had leaked out of the woollen carpet
The cold front that came over our area brought with it unseasonal thunder and lightning; crucially one lightning strike seemed to come down hitting a tall tree literally across the road from us and the resultant crack of thunder was the very loudest I have *ever* witnessed. Poor Kira, our youngest cat - the one who got electrocuted at the age of 3 months - was totally freaked out and with eyes huge slunk around the lounge, tail to the floor and hid from us; she would not let me come near, nor pick her up, but kept leopard-crawling to hide under furniture. I'm wondering whether the electfic storm brought back memories of electrocution in her? Is this possible?
Thank goodness she seems back to her old self today.
On Friday some moron thought it clever to write me an e-mail bragging how it had taken her all of 10 minutes to remove my copyright watermark off one of my pictures. It's sadly f*knuts like this who spoil the game... all I can say is : if you can't play fair, go play with yourself.
Last night I had a fluffy movie cuddle-fest and lay in my cozy bed watching Just like Heaven followed by Pretty Woman - ok ok, for the 7th time... granted, it's a Chick Flick, but oh, I love it
I am still not able to keep up with thanking all of you for your great comments and
s; please believe me, I take all of them to heart and am very appreciative! I just struggle to find time to get back to everybody, so please take this as a huge THANK YOU. You are all being very supportive, which I am grateful for.
I visited my mum this morning, to bring her clean laundry and pay her a visit. She asks the same questions over and over and has little recollection of anything happening around her. Very sad.
So : I wish you all a great week ahead; be productive and creative and happy
