Hi Folks,

My most humble apologies to all those folks who like to read our blog. We've been a little on the busy side lately, or a little on the lazy side (take your pick) and haven't written anything in ages.

Well, we had a good Christmas, the first as a couple. We decided to stay home and have our own Christmas lunch, which was delicious and nice and relaxing. Actually, we ended up only having lunch at 17:00 because we fell asleep on the bed shortly after getting home from Church! Read more about Sorry for the silence......

So I saw this interesting little thing on a friend's Facebook profile, and I thought it might be fun to do it and show all you blog readers what my life's soundtrack would be. Read more about If your life was film what would the soundtrack be?...

Well, as you can see by the title of my post, Raoul has talked me into writing another blog. I really don't think I'll ever get into the habit of this. I'm simply not someone who journals. Ah well. I suppose the occasional blog will have to do. Read more about He talked me into posting another blog....

Yes... we have to move... again...

I was really hoping to stay here in Muizenberg for more than just about 18 months. We really enjoy living here, and it's affordable. Unfortunately, we can't do that much longer.

The person who owns the town house we're in is our landlord's son, who has been in the UK for a few years, but now wants to return to South Africa. Unfortunately for us, that means that he wants his house back, and we have to move out. It's a pain, but I understand why, and I'm not complaining. Read more about Moving... AGAIN......

Right. So I'm still bored. So I decided to download and install a new theme for our blog. What do you think? Let us know, comment on this blog entry.

It's Friday afternoon in the office, and let's admit it... no one ACTUALLY wants to work. Fortunately for me, the weekly "Crow's Nest" e-mail from the project office came through, and with it, two jokes that amused me and brightened my afternoon. Herewith are those jokes, since I reckoned it would possibly please some of our readers too... Read more about Two Jokes...

Raoul and I made a deal- he'd post about the wedding, and I'd post about the honeymoon. I still think he took the easy way out by referring to the pictures, but I suppose I can't complain because I'd gladly take the same opportunity. However, since it will be a while until we have the honeymoon pictures up on the site, I'll have to take the long way around. Read more about The Honeymoon...

Now, I have to start off by saying that I don't know why it's called the happiest day of your life, because my wedding day wasn't. I was too busy making sure everything was going to be ready, and then too busy concentrating on not making any mistakes when I said my vows, etc. Having said that, however, I did enjoy the day, and was really glad to finally be married to my wonderful wife.

Hannah and I have sorted through and uploaded the best wedding photos for your perusal. Reception photos will appear later, and photos of our honeymoon will be up in a few weeks time (we took lots of photos, so we've got a lot to wade through).

Blog posts detailing the wedding day and the honeymoon will appear shortly. In the mean time, enjoy the wedding photos! Read more about Much awaited wedding photographs...

So I finally got through to Home Affairs this afternoon. At this stage I'm really frustrated with them, and all the hassle I've gone through.

After trying all the normal numbers at my disposal, I decided to try this other number I was given, which is for Ms Allie, the head of Home Affairs in Wynberg. Mrs Coetzer, the lady who deals with the immigrations applications, answered, and I told her my story. She wasn't sure what I was talking about, and said that she would look, and then phone me back.
