I am still a bit of a babe in the woods when it comes to technology; which is why I am so lucky to have Big Friendly.
And today I am being blown away by the fact that I am lying in bed with the most amazing sea view, in Umhlanga, writing a post on my blog, on my blekberrie! Isn’t it amazing?
We are on a small, proper holiday. Life is good. We will swim in the sea even though it is raining. Like tourists. We will eat ice cream and throw the frizbee and drink beers and walk and sleep and talk rubbish and laugh.


I am beyond myself with excitement. Tomorrow Big Friendly and I are flying to KZN for a week’s holiday, in Umhlanga and Durbs. We are joining my brother and sister-in-law and we’ll spend a weekend with BF’s brother, wife and our cutie niece!

In preparation for our holiday (for which all the weather forecasts predict a week of rain) Big Friendly and I did a beach run yesterday at Muizenberg. It was totally delicious. There was hardly a square of sand available, and the it felt like every kind of Capetonian was there; a total mix of colours, shapes, sizes, languages and ages. Learner surfers, body boarders, toddlers, teenagers, young screaming teenage girls, big fat moms, gangsters, wanna-be gangsters, foreigners, serious long boarders, life-savers.

I walked into the water for a huge, long swim. It was amazing. After being in the water for what felt like half an hour I came out and we lay on our towels, shooting the breeze. We packed up and left just as the actual breeze arrived. It was a totally delicious beach outing.

Big Friendly is calling me Redneck this morning. That’s because my decolletage is quite pink. He on the other hand could be referred to as a Redback. Both of our pale skins held onto the sun for dear life. And I know how bad it is for you blahblah blah, but we feel fantastic. And just about ready for our proper, little holiday! Yee ha!
