Well, life has pretty much become ‘normal’ being back in Africa 💛 I get to see my family whenever I want (which is at least once a week); my nephew (who’s only 1) knows exactly who ‘Aunty Hazy’ is, something that he wouldn’t have known had I still been in Dubai; my business is starting to take shape; I’ve been graded as an amateur boxer 🥊 ; and I live in the best house, on the little farm in the suburbs 🥰
I’ve managed to get out to the bush on multiple occasions since moving home – one of my absolute happy places – as well having travelled to Cape Town and St Francis Bay to visit family and friends. There’s nothing like an African sunset!
Well, that’s really all I have to say for now… enjoy these sunsets!
I must apologise profusely for not having been around for the last year and a bit… boy oh boy has life been turned upside down. Not only was I affected by Corona along with everyone else, but I also moved countries! Yup, I am now living back in my home country, South Africa, and am back with my family – including a new addition, little Max, the nephew 🥰
There’s so much that has happened between November 2019 and today, so I won’t bore you with all the details.
Rather, I’ll just give you a few bullet points and then will make a promise to not disappear for such a long time again 😁
I made the decision to move back to SA in September 2019
I decided it was time to give up the corporate world and so I began working on starting up my own business
I handed in my resignation at the end of August 2020, booked my flight home for October 2020, and did lots and lots of partying (covid-compliant) and spending quality time with friends during the whole of 2020
Saying goodbye to my Dubai peeps was awful 😭 💔
I packed my cat up and sent him off a few days prior to me, and we were reunited in SA on 19 October 2020
I moved in with my family for the first few months while I found my feet, set up my business, bought a car, found somewhere to live
In January I moved into my new gorgeous house – a cottage on a farm! A far cry from the crazy hustle and bustle, construction vibes of Dubai!
So, that’s me in a nutshell 🥜
I hope you’re all doing well, staying safe, looking after yourselves and loved ones, and adhering to all relevant covid-rules in whatever country you’re reading this from!
OK OK… I get it. You’re tired of hearing me come up with random excuses as to why I once again haven’t updated my something new posts.
I hereby declare there will no longer be any excuses.
Total truth – I just keep letting them slip past.
I am constantly telling my friends: “I need to take photos of this for my something new”, so the posts are right there at the front of my thinking… it’s just that the execution of them is, well, it’s poo. Sorry.
So, here I am with 4 weeks (actually, it’ll only be 3 because week 14 had a big fat zero new in it 😦 )
Week 12 – That time I watched an improv show
Week 13 – That time I made it to the Southern Hemisphere to share my brother-in-law’s birthday with him
Week 14 – FAIL!
Week 15 – That time at Morimoto brunch
And there you have it folks. Four Three new weeks in life.
I’m not going to promise that I’ll be better… but I do promise that you’ll get another update from me at some point in the future. Whether it’s in one week, or five weeks…. who knows?!
