All this rain is doing wonders for my sugarsnaps, carrots and basil. lovely! grow my babies, grow! Few man made things leave me in as much awe as things from God's own hands.

Die Heuwels

Aaaah. Afrikaans and I are not friends. My afrikaans extends as far as the preposition song that you learn in high school ("en maar dog want en maar dog want of of of nog nog nog soweel as trouens soweel as trouens inteendeel"). Sunday lunch at my best friends house (which is a predominantly afrikaans household) just wouldn't be complete without her mum asking me to say something in afrikaans at the table. This soutie provides the entertainment. However, since being introduced to Die Heuwels Fantasties, i can now be caught singing afrikaans most of the time. i hum it at my desk. I sing it in the car.

some snaps from my first time i heard them. Thanks Lauren, Kyle, Damien and John

Here are some songs, Leja (dis my gunstelling)although the video is a bit random.

football fever

From now on if someone annoys me, I shall refer to them as "suarez".anti- saurez blogs are being written all over the world condemning this man. Hollywood parents are signing their children up for his acting classes. Crime syndicates all across South Africa are spreading his photo as we speak.

Never thought I'd say this, but at this rate I shall soon be denied access into countries for being a violent supporter.

in my mind it sounds like.

allowing talent to go to waste feels like throwing away a perfectly good caserole that's just come out the oven.
