I’ve just got back from a whirlwind trip to Dubai (to teach dance workshops) & Qatar (to catch up with family). Yes, me! Can you believe it. This home girl who has never been off African soil. If you don’t count the boat trip with my granny when I was 15 where we sailed from Durban, into international waters for a few hours, then to Cape Town.
It was fabulous and I was spoiled thoroughly in every way. I even rode a camel… (Thanks Kirsty!) His name was Shadeen and he was a true camel gentleman. In fact, the whole experience was a little reminiscent of pony rides for big people.
As for the rest of it, don’t get me started – you’d be snoring or crying with boredom by the end of my story. 🙂 I landed home last Wednesday at 8:30pm, smack into organising my 5yo’s party on Friday for 22 kidlets and a ladies tea for about 100 on Saturday. Though I had some seriously motivated and organised ladies sorting that in my absence, all I really had to do was show up with food for my table and not forget my steps. So I’ve been a teensy bit busy.
Not as busy as you lot though. According to my inbox, I have 2620 blog posts to catch up on! Seriously people? That is going to take me the next 3 months! I’m thinking this is what most agents feel like on a regular day. *makes a mental note to stop harrassing agents who haven’t responded in 24 hours*
I will pop in and see what you’ve all been up to… but until I get to you… Tell me your news!
