holy moly, it’s only 18 odd days and then my SUMMER HOLIDAY starts. today i’m reflecting on summer holidays of old, 99.9% of the time spent by the sea (where else?). our family haunts were:
kagga kamma is nice. go there!
i’ve watched this advert a multitude of times, but decided to share anyway for those of you who might not have seen it yet – it’s been all over the sa blogosphere (for good reason). it’s an ad for the south african investment firm, allan gray. read the background story & making of over at king james and pay close attention when the dust clears at the end of the ad, that’s actual james dean right there : )
the dudes in my family went on a big bad bike trip this past weekend. they had several burst tyres when going through the tankwa karoo. so if you ever decide to do that… take lots of spares. i wish you could take a train right through the karoo – i would LOVE that! and i don’t mean the typical blue train route… more off the beaten track. kind of impossible to take a train to Die Hel though.
latest pics of the new 2010 stadiums from the official 2010 twitter feed – nice!
ooooooh i’m hoping for the entire alphabet! go haasbroek go go go.
every spring day (sept 1st) at our primary school there would be a ‘spring hat’ competition for the younger kids. don’t ask me why, but we all took it pretty seriously. well, perhaps i didn’t take it AS seriously as some of the other seven year old girls – whose MOMS made their hats. needless to say, i didn’t win. it was a sad day for my my little ponies.
