I went down to the beach with my friend Sarah today, but it was very cold and blustery, so we found a sheltered spot at a restaurant and had a good catch-up over lunch instead.

What do we have here? Exactly my question when Thomas brought in the first piece of droe wors at 4am this morning. Forty-five minutes later he came in with the second piece. Both times he was squeaking with so much excitement and pride I had to see what he was up to. I confiscated both pieces - this is him finding them again on the kitchen counter this morning. Over the last few months he has developed a habit of foraging for meat products; he has brought back a whole cooked chicken drumstick, a piece of braaied boerewors, three mini vienna sausages, a meatball, a piece of dried fish, and several bones and bits of carcass. That's just what made it inside - I've also found various bits and pieces in my garden. Last week there was a short rib left next to my gate. He is incorrigible. Where is he getting this stuff?!

This week is turning out just like the last: incredibly busy and stressful workdays, resulting in a need for escapism to clear my mind when I get home. Today it was music, Damien Rice. (And then more Thrones)

Work, work, work... full-steam ahead on our work's new website. I'm in charge of the content management system. It's a big and challenging project but I am loving it. Mostly. ~ A year ago today I was reading up a storm ~
After a walk in the forest at Jubilee Creek in the Knysna forest we were delighted to find a little tea shop in nearby Millwood. Hot tea, delicious cake, and entertainment provided by a cheeky drongo who joined us at the table.

Day before I leave for a week's holiday and I have to run Thomas to the vet with an infected wound on his tail. The cat-sitter will have to give him pills and see that he doesn't pull the bandage off.

One of my favourite parts of the day is when Tom runs out to greet me when I arrive home. It has developed to a ritual where he rolls on the ground and I give him a belly rub. So cute. But in the process he gets covered in dirt - which he then brings inside of course. ~ A year ago today I was playing solitaire ~
For the last fortnight I've been hearing snippets of the new Coldplay single, Every Teardrop is a Waterfall. So today I went to their website, gave it a proper listen and watched the video several times. It is a great feel-good song, love it! ~ A year ago today I was enjoying the sunshine ~
One photo posted every day. A snapshot from my life. People I know, places I visit. The mundane details of my day-to-day. Things I do, see, watch, read and taste. A record of my small, quiet, everyday life.
