Photo Gallery: Walking Into Our New Home (2010-08-31) | We finally got the keys to our new house - which of course meant champagne time! :) (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Mamma Mia is Here Again | So last week's Mamma Mia musical didn't quite clear Chantelle's flu away, but it certainly did bring a smile to her face, brought out a laugh or two and got her head bopping to the music - so in terms of just that it was ... (My Life | My Reviews)
Photo Gallery: Steenberg Lunch Time Walk (2010-08-30) | For a while instead of going to gym during lunch at the Touchwork offices, I would grab my iPod and head off for a brisk walk through Steenberg for some much needed exercise. On this particular trip, I decided to let my camera tag along... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Photo Gallery: Nagua Bay Complex (2010-08-29) | Andy's flat in the Nagua Bay complex was our rented home for a couple of years, and more importantly, the first place where Chantelle and I lived together under one roof, meaning that it will always have a special place in our hearts. These photos were ... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Photo Gallery: Gordon's Bay Walk (2010-08-29) | Despite the ferocious wind that blows here, I really do love living here in the picturesque Gordon's Bay. These photos were all snapped on one of my epic long walks, trying to take in as much of the scenery as possible after just having bought ... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Thank You SARS, I'll Take It! | Sigh, Tax Season is upon us once more, though I must say that the advent of SARS' e-filing system has certainly sped things up hundred-fold and made life pretty easy for simple taxpayers like myself. Nowadays it is simply a matter of logging on, generating your ... (My Life)
Cat Care Isn't Cheap | Eish, cat care really, really isn't cheap. It started a little while ago with Achilles who out of the blue started sneezing. This got progressively worse, more snotty and he basically just lost all energy, literally just lying there and meowing in protest if you so ... (My Life)
Come Dine with Me... Or Not | So this really hasn't been a great last couple of days for the 45 Nagua Bay household. Both cats are as sick as dogs and both humans are as sick as dogs - makes you wonder just how poor dogs must suffer then following that ... (My Life)
Treading Painfully | Ouchie. Weird annoyance I'm sitting with at the moment. For those of you who know me, you know that I'm not the type to dress up very often - hell, I made my last couple of visits to the attorneys and financial planners in shorts ... (My Life)
Big Cat Sanctuary: Jukani Wildlife Park | On our weekend away to Pinnacle Point in Mossel Bay, Chantelle and I once again made our way through to Jukani Wildlife Park, lying just outside of its confines along the N2 highway. Now if you have never been to Jukani and you are a ... (My Life)
A Wife in a Blur | So I've finally managed to get Chantelle to upgrade and move from the always fun to play Burnout: Takedown, a well worn PS2 release from back in 2004, to the newly released 2010 Blur on my shiny black XBOX 360. To be honest, playing the PS2 ... (My Life)
Dekneecapitated | It would seem that the treadmills at Steenberg Virgin Active have suddenly all decided to rebel against me. So picture this. It's lunch hour and I find myself happily kitted out in gym and ready to put in a quick 20 minute run before I return ... (My Life)
Pinnacle Point and the Long Weekend | (Note, this post is now officially more than a week late. I started it off last week with the best of intentions, but you know, things just always seem to get in the way...) So as I may have alluded to earlier, this long weekend past ... (My Life)
Step Up to Blur, Karate and a little bit of Family Time | Had a good weekend this weekend, a more stay at home one than last weekend of course, but a good one nevertheless. Things kicked off with a rather poor movie choice for Friday evening's entertainment, with Chantelle and myself opting to catch the newly released ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: Jukani Animal Sanctuary (2010-08-07) | The Jukani Animal Sanctuary is a fantastic initiative that can be found just outside of Mossel Bay, its primary concern being the safe-keeping and eduction of the public in respect to big cats. And when I say big cats, I mean big cats. On the ... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Lean back, Feet up and Arms down | So don't expect to see too much of me online this long weekend, nor expect to find me lurking around Gordon's Bay anywhere. No, this long weekend (and I mean looonng weekend thanks to having booked Friday off), Chantelle and I will be dragging Retha ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: Pinnacle Point (2010-08-06) | Pops has signed on to a pretty sweet holiday home deal, making him a fractional owner in this beautiful holiday house up at Pinnacle Point in Mossel Bay. This mean he gets four weeks of the year to enjoy a proper breakaway, and as these ... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
The House Hunt is Over | So by now many of you might have heard through the grapevine (in other words Chantelle's FaceBook profile) that we have purchased our very first house. And you would be correct. We have indeed bought a fantastic starter home in the heart of Gordon's Bay, in a ... (My Life)
Stubborn Like Her Dad | Chantelle went for another check up scan on Friday, though this time around she gave her mom a much appreciated present, inviting Cheryl to accompany her to the gynae while I stayed at work, slaving away at my keyboard as per usual. The good news is ... (My Life)
The Bryan Adams Concert | Seeing as I've been so lax in terms of my blogging output as of late (sorry about that), I just realized that I still haven't mentioned just how awesome and how much we enjoyed the recent Bryan Adams music concert we attended at Grandwest Casino, ... (My Life | My Reviews)
Nostalgia Hit: Freezerland | Heh. When I was a bachelor, just moved out of the house and living in a flat all on my lonesome, one of my main staple food groups was that of Freezerland - basically the multitude of frozen, crumbed products that Freezerland produced en masses ... (My Life)
