So our March photo experiment proved to be enough fun to continue throughout April… I missed a few days, but here are my snaps of life that encapsulates my April. In May, we’ll do it again, but I’m also starting a May Mojo project. Watch this space…
I skipped the first of April and only started on the second. Getting a mixed bag full of awesome new CDs from one of my favourite music labels pretty much had me jumping for joy. Perks of the job for a music lover.
I wanted to take a picture while driving through one of the tree-tunnel roads in Jozi: they’re magical. But I forgot to keep my phone in the car for the drive home. So, instead, some strange animals… I guess I’m a car hippie.
A cold spell hit Jozi early. Enough reason to dig up my scruffy punky fingerless gloves.
A chill one at home, juggling a book and a cuddly cat on my lap.
I’m guessing that it actually isn’t much of a chore if it’s the end result of an epic day with good friends.
In the fresh air. No wonder the horse looks so happy…
A good mood? Perhaps.
I don’t usually share my wine. Sometimes I make an exception. :-)
Lots of sadness on this day, with a good person lost. Three sore hearts.
Under the weather, underwhelmed, under enthusiastic. Still sad.
The challenge being to try and look cool and fabulous at SA Fashion Week. It was fun.
At Fashion Week again, a moment.
The kitchen is the place where everybody always congregates. I have lovely memories of fantastic times with friends. Once we revamp, we’re making it bigger.
This is issue number 63 of Hoezit!, the tween magazine I edit. Always a lovely feeling when I hold the finished product in my hands.
Jozi might have its faults, but I love living here. And sometimes, looking out from a high point makes you feel incredibly free. I interviewed author Lauren Beukes at this spot, Zietzies Guest House & Restaurant, and it was pretty damn epic.
I read all the time, chronically. I’d just finished Lauren Beukes’ The Shining Girls, and decided to start on Ken Follett’s Winter of the World
Creative people come up with special, quirky things – like the supercool woman who sorted our magazine media day’s look and feel and vibe.
On this particular day, calm. Spending time with a good friend in beautiful surrounds will do that to you.
Princess Peroni’s been sulking something bad ever sense we introduced the ginger terrorist Pratchett into her life. She used to love being brushed, but has avoided us for a while. On this day, I finally got her into her daily habit again…
Reading. Love, love love reading. I’ve always dreamt about having bookshelves in my home, and it’s a fab perk of being an “adult”.
Oh yeah! My zombie addiction got fed when hubby rocked up with this epic brain mould…
Having a fabulous husband (here looking nice and camp), and a terrorist kitten who survived her first visit to the Vet. (This pic got turned into a pretty hilarious meme by hubby’s employees: http://www.quickmeme.com/meme/3u38kz/ )
This was the second time that a Spotted Eagle Owl used our garden as a daytime roost. Usually, we find them by the insane ruckus the other birds make, dive-bombing and alarm-calling and generally harassing the poor owl. It stayed there the whole day, and then went hunting.
I’ve restarted the piano more than a decade after giving it up. It’s a wonderful feeling, even though I know it’s going to take a lot of hard work.
Wise words: “A man with too much ambition cannot sleep in peace.”
Teatime! Better known as brain-recharge time, relax time, killing time…
