morning walk

This morning

Me 1: bleh, i don’t feel like walking today
Me 2: you always think that and always enjoy it
Me 1: i don’t have time. I have to meet Leaza
Me 2: pfffft, yes you do have time. how far you planning to walk? Cape Town?
Me 1: ‘whine’ but i also have to shower and wash my hair before leaving for the meeting

Me 2: it’s a friend, you can have wet hair. and since when do you not go out with wet hair

Me 1: but its hot!

Me 2: …..

Dogs: OMG my god, did she just pick up a shoe??  she did!! quick run to the door. are we walking? we are, aren’t we? OMG best. day. ever (they walk everyday btw) jump. grab her sock. run to the door. jump and twist. are we really walking? oh we are, we are.  quick. run in a circle. jump on her. bark. grab a shoe and drag her. WE ARE WALKING!!!!!!!!

Me 1 and Me 2: well i guess that’s decided



I would never have described myself as an animal person

I liked cats but that is mostly because they don’t really give a shit

I have had animals on and off for years but have always been the one saying that animals are not people too, they are animals.

i would never spend thousands on treatment etc etc – they are just animals

aaah that old me had some funny ideas, didn’t she?


This cat was the start of the change in me, the change into a much for humane human being, a kinder person, frankly just not such an arrogant twat

We adopted her from Cape Town when I was on a business trip, and flew her and her sister back to Durban. She is wasted on us really – she belongs to a 6 year old because she is the cat that would let a child dress her up and push her around in a pram. She is so loving and gentle and docile it is impossible not to feel your heart strings twanged by her

so she is my #100happydays day 15 moment today, sunning herself at our front gate, making me smile with a love i didn’t even believe in, as I came home
