Getting Older

So yesterdya I downloaded The Gimp to get past my lack of Adobe Photoshop issues. And it's been hugely successful for the minor requirements I had just to keep my blog picturesque ;) So thanks to that, I've been able to continue with my Singapore and Thailand retrospective. Yay.

Last night was pretty quiet again. I think after last week we kinda needed a quiet one! Last week and yesterday. Yesterday was a tough one for Varen & I and I think we just needed some down time together. We again lazed with the bunnies. They're so lovely and I can't believe how much Henna has grown in a week. And she is jumping so much higher than Bell ever did ... luckily she doesn't seem that in control of her powers yet ;)

In other news, it's my birthday tomorrow. Yup, I'm getting older (wiser? probably not). I can't believe I'm about to be 28. Where did my twenties go? Where is my life headed from here? Sigh, birthdays always seem to bring out those sort of life questions.

Happily I'm taking leave next week, thank goodness for South Africa and it's multitude of public holidays :) And my Mom will be flying up from Cape Town tomorrow too - the best birthday gift ... although it was mine to her :) And then Daddio will be joining us next Thursday (he couldn't get leave at month end) for the 4-day weekend and we'll all be heading down to Varen's family farm in the Free State. I'm really looking forward to it :)

But it does, however, mean that I will not be posting till the 5th May. Have a fabulous week :)
