Welcome to South Africa!

Well hello there readers, friends, followers  😁

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!

I will see you again soon  🤩

Week 50 – Red Ivory wedding venue

I’m becoming quite the pro at fly-in visits to family & friends – especially if there’s a wedding involved. And this past week was no exception!

Family-friends of my family (?!) got married in South Africa (coz that’s where they’re from, and live), in Johannesburg, at a place called Red Ivory. And boy was it spectacular! And lots of fun!

I don’t have much to say for this blog post (saving my words for my degree 😉 ) but the photos should do it justice. Enjoy 🙂

Off on holiday… AGAIN!

What a whirlwind three weeks I’m currently in….

  • I’ve just left my job, awaiting the holidays to be over before starting the new one
  • I’m currently in Dubai for 48 hours in between the Prague holiday (blog post to follow on this one), and the visit home to South Africa
  • I’m flying home because my sister is GETTING MARRIED!
  • We’re off to Mauritius for the full beach-wedding celebration
  • That’s a total of 4 countries in 3 weeks: Czech Republic, UAE, South Africa, Mauritius 🙂

So with all of that going on, I will not be updating my blog regularly over the next few weeks… all Something New Posts will be updated once I’m back – and believe me, they’ll be worth waiting for!

Sister love ❤

Catch you on the flip side!
