It's official

We're moving :) Yip, we're moving back to Cape Town, and soon. Jerall is starting his new job in the last week of June, so there's a lot to get done. Finding movers, a flat and someone to take over the rest of our lease here. Not to forget, what seems to be my never ending job hunt. All in all it doesn't matter because, we're moving! :D

Catching up


A photo from our Cape Town trip; a sunny day at Kirstenbosch.

I've been lax on the blogging front again, but post holiday sickness means that you just want to take it easy. The trip to Cape Town was awesome, saw most of the people we wanted to see, gamed like crazy and just generally had a good time :)

Some things we discovered on the trip: Asara, amazing and a return is needed. It is a gorgeous place, just outside of Stellenbosch. Ice Cream Ninjas lived up to it's hype :) And we can't get long haired dogs. We briefly house sat for the sil, and my sinus' went crazy :-/

Aside from being sick, after the trip we got Dragon Age II. I think it's much better than the first one, and well worth it. We also finally got our copy of The Wise Man's Fear, but I've not started reading it yet, because of the gaming 0_o

News wise, things seem to be on track for us to move back to Cape Town within the next few months :) My extended family has grown by another cousin, Dana. I'll try to get the family to call her Scully, but sadly her mom has no idea who that is :-/ Oh, and even though we were on holiday I still managed to lose a kg :) Only 10 more to go :)

How was your long weekends?

Ps. Don't forget to vote tomorrow.
