So… earlier this year I bought me and my girlfriend a pair of tickets for the R Kelly Single Ladies Tour to South Africa. There was no hiding her level of excitement at the prospect of seeing one of her all time favourite artists live in concert in our own back yard.
Now imagine her reaction when she discovered or rather when I announced that I had ‘misplaced’ our tickets. Yes, the concert got postponed and the non-event slipped into the back of my mind BUT as the new date was promoted, the subject was raised and I was exposed. I searched high and low to no avail before caving in and contacting Computicket. The initial feedback was that I’d have to send in a police affidavit along with ID and so on and so on… I promised to take care of it right away but laziness and procrastination crept in.
With only a few weeks, maybe a month to go, I revisted the situation. In fact, it was only yesterday that I emailed the call centre and today the response had a completely different tone… a new reference number was issued and I rushed to collect the tickets – major brownie points restored
Yip, it’s been a minute since I last graced the WWW with my musings (be it verbal or photographic). To be honest every time I see an update from the numerous blogs that I follow, I’m suddenly taken over by an immense feeling of guilt… I know, there’s no need, but that’s the way it is.
Of course there’s no point in posting for the sake of posting… just because I’m a chatty man, it doesn’t mean that I always have something to say. However, today I decided that I need to get back in the game. I must admit it’s going to be a crawl back in rather than a hop, skip or a jump – but at least I can announce that my days of squatting are over and hopefully my new found passion for blogtrotting will provide the inspiration I need to chat freely again.
Unfortunately, it also means some spring cleaning is in order… I DO need to find like minded people to follow, blogs that will broaden my thinking, stories and photos that will make me say “wow”, etcetera, etcetera. That said, there will be some blogs I’ll be saying goodbye to… don’t take it personal, the reality is I end up liking some posts just so you know I haven’t forgotten you – and you don’t want that… you want your followers to be genuinely engaged with your blog and I expect the same too.
OK, I’m starting to waffle… ’til the next post… take care!
I visited “God’s Window” last year… at the highest viewing point you get the most amazing view of the tree plantations stretching as far as you can see… and beyond the horizon.
What does one do when sitting in a dark room with nothing but a torch and a camera? Illuminate your hands and take a photo… not easy when you only have two hands, but very satisfying when you finally pull it off.
