I am updating this blog out of fear. I got a very threatening email today about my lack of blog updates. It was very scary! Kind of. Ok, not really. It was from my sister and it said the following:
Hey lady, update your frikking blog please.
So here I am! Hi.
I've been away for the last week, in London and Vienna. I am SUCH a globe trotting jet-setter.
London was fab. I stayed in the most lovely hotel (The Cavendish Hotel) right in the middle of London, it was fantastic. I ended up doing a whole lot of work so didn't have time to sightsee or do much else but I still had a great time. I tried to go shopping but ended up having 17 heart attacks every time I converted from Pounds to ZAR so that all I bought for myself were two pairs of cheap flip flops. Such a sensible thing to buy in London, not. I bought a pair of cheap PJs for the kids, some panties and earrings for Rose and a magazine for Marko. A car magazine. Pathetic. And the magazine wasn't even a porn one! Poor guy. But cars are like porn for Marko (lovely to look at but has no chance of scoring any action). I am nothing if not cheap. But anyway, London was great and I got to see my handsome brother Paul, extra bonus!!
Vienna was lovely too, but totally wasted on a cultureless person such as myself. I was with my NBF Nicky in Vienna (I was invited to speak at a conference there) and while she went to the art galleries and theatre, I sat in my hotel room and worked. Happily so, I might mention.
I actually had a great time overseas. Exhausting doing so much travel and work in such a short time, but it was good for me. I have come back feeling all inspired and motivated to achieve even more! Now I just have to clone myself and not sleep for the rest of my life and I should be fine.
Marko and Rose did a sterling job taking care of the kids. I did however notice that Kate has a fringe now which she didn't have before (I think you call them bangs?). Apparently there was an incident involving a stuck hair clip, a fumbling husband and a pair of scissors but I was too scared to find out exactly what happened.
And now I have to go to sleep as I am still a little fatigued after my transatlantic foray, but I am going to come back tomorrow to tell you about:
- My personal experience of the BA strike
- A super chap that I met on the plane
- My biggest knob moment EVER.
PS knob is my new favourite word. I got it from my brother. Love it. Knob.
PPS the three things above are unrelated. Just in case you were wondering.
