back in south africa
its funny how its worked out – in april i hadn’t been here for 2 and a half years and then since april this is my 3rd visit in 9 months! january is also a glorious time to be here as its in the middle of summer! 🙂
i arrived last week and have had a good time seeing my friends and family. i also finally met little liam (my friend quintin’s son)! i say, finally, but he is still only 8 weeks old or something… but still, i was so looking forward to meeting the little guy from the moment he was there! and, as you can see from above, he is the cutest thing!
i took some more photos which i’ll hopefully be posting soon! i don’t know what my blogging will be like over the next week, but i’ll try at the very least to put up pictures and i’ll do my best to give you guys a visit!
the rest of the time my mom and i have been hanging out, which has been really nice. we mostly watch “buck rogers”. some of you already know that one of the main ways in which my mom and i connect is through science fiction, particularly science fiction tv shows. so its always really nice to watch that kind of thing with her.
buck rogers is particularly special. before i start getting lyrical about that now (’cause i hope to write a proper post about it!) i’ll just say that it was one of the first shows we used to watch and i was really tiny when we started watching it. i think we may have caught it when there was a re-run a few years later, but other than then we haven’t seen it for, oh, about a good 20 years!
then last year i found it on amazon and started working out when i might be able to afford. it turns out i didn’t have to, ’cause when i visited my mom in october we just happened to stumble upon it in a dvd shop and she immediately snapped it up (along with a jacques brel dvd for me as well – she really is good to me!).
and so, i brought the dvd set back with me and we’ve been watching it all holiday now…!
you gotta love buck rogers! 😀
