It’s taken me a while…ok, a very long while to write this post. I have a good reason, I promise. WordPress is blocked in China; yes you read it, it’s BLOCKED, closed, shutdown and error on the screen if you try to open it. These are the joys of living in mainland. So, how did I manage to post this post? HAHA…!!
Anyway, this post is not supposed to be about blocked sites in China but about my wonderful 3 weeks in relax mode.
I was well looked after by the Sun Gods and Rain Gods, blessing me with perfect weather anyone could ask for. I arrived just in time to catch the falling jacarandas; their lilac blossoms scatter the streets like a rolled out purple carpet to welcome me back to my lovely home in sunny South Africa.
I wrote a whole list of things that I wanted to do when I step foot on the African soil but mostly of what I did was pure relaxation. Waking up everyday with the rising sun, so excited to take walks in my garden; visiting the green peas and sweet pea bush for new treasures; and having my two lovely dogs wag their tails as they follw my trail being curious as they are takes a nibble at the leaves…haha, I know my mom wouldn’t be too happy about that. I miss my dogs, I know they do too.
