Greetings, Blogland

It's been years since I've gone so long between posts, but I promise you it wasn't intentional. Communication has proved difficult in the last week or so thanks to various factors, such as the fact that my phone started giving me issues and wouldn't let me send or recieve SMS, the work internet was down due to a Telkom problem and I'd used up my ADSL cap at home and the Telkom online recharge facility was not working. Have I ever mentioned how much Telkom frustrates me?

So I would like to use this post to say the following:
  • Happy belated 30th birthday to Phillygirl. Sorry it's a week late. I promise that I thought of you on 26 April all day. Hope the year ahead is super awesome in every way.
  • Sorry to anyone who has emailed / SMSed me and not received a reply yet. I am working my way through the backlog and hope to get there soon.
  • Where the Wild Things Are is one of the weirdest movies I have seen. Ever.
  • Packing up a company takes more work than I would have believed. And more boxes.
  • Throwing things out / donating old stuff / recycling is cathartic.
  • May scares me. There is so much I need to get done this month that I just want to crwal under my winter duvet and keen. It's less than a month till my World Cup visitors arrive. Eep!
  • This freezing cold weather is making me grumpy.
  • I have no idea what to get my mom for Mothers' Day.
  • I am tempted to click "mark as read" on the hundreds of items in my feed reader.
  • I managed to get to 10 bullet points. Yay! 10 points for me.

Let's not even start discussing Telkom and their inadequacies as a service provider!

Good luck for the month ahead. I am sure that your home will be more than ready for your visitors!

And no, the frosting wasn't yours - but v similar. didn't have the golden syrup in it. was completely delicious!

I kind of want to punch Telkom in the big fat face. They suck SO bad.
I called them to install two more phone lines at work...TWO MONTHS AGO.

Anyway, glad you're back! :)

(I also have no idea what I'm getting my mom for Mothers Day.)

Cam: No I didn't. Have no idea what you're on about. I don't watch much TV. As for the resignation... I just want to get May over with so I can start June in my home office!

Alet: Thanks. And welcome!

Shayne: I'll have to get that frosting recipe from you - it looks divine!

Sleepy: If you do punch Telkom, can I watch? ;-)

I'm still trying to get my act together to see "Where the wild things are" . There's a boy in my school who wants to marry the soundtrack. LOL
