Hello from Bloem

Well, this morning I woke up at 4:30. That hasn't happened in forever, probably since the babies were "real" babies.

It was a real battle for me since I'm usually a 6:45 am girl... And even then I prefer 8-9ish.... :)

Add to that it was pouring with rain but I made it. Couldn't believe the buzz at the airport at 5:30 in the morning. Absolute madness.

No problems with anything but I have a funny story to share.

I phoned the branch manager and asked him where I should wait for him.

He said don't you worry, the airport is very small. I will find you without any trouble. But me, being A Jhb girl!! told him I'll have a bright blue suitcase and a pink handbag ;)

Well,, when I arrived, I realized what he meant. What a cute airport. Tiny!!!!!

I walked right out and spotted him immediately :)

Work is as usual fine without the micro managers. However, when the branch manager heard where I was staying, he insisted I get them to change the booking because it was in a dodgy part of town. I emailed the PA and then got a phone call grilling me as to why, etc.

Lalalalalala (that's what was in my head)

Long story short, booking was changed and I'm in a decent place now at double the price!

I'm at supper now... But while I was still in the room, there was church across the street so I opened the window so I could properly hear and sing along. So nice.

I can't wait to go sleep tonight as I'm knackered. I do want to tinker with my goals and write a blog post or two first though.

How was your Tuesday?


  1. LOL the airport story reminded me of the Gaborone airport first time I visited there in 2003.

    I used to wake up at 4:30am when I was doing boot camp and I tell you the roads and gyms are very busy by 5am!

    Glad your hotel was changed! Safety is key even if it costs a bit more.

    Tuesday was good but busy

  2. I don't miss 4:30 at all, 6 is plenty early for me! *Lalala I hate your job Lalala* How dare they compromise, or question your safety. Ridiculous!
    Our Tuesday was run of the mill. Pancakes for dinner- HAPPY FAT TUESDAY!

  3. Yes. Bloem, PE and CT airports so small :)
    Glad they could change your booking.

  4. Sounds like PE's airport - especially pre the extension! Glad all is fine - enjoy Bloem

  5. Cape Towns airport is big - not very user friendly either. The airport in Zanzibar was like this - literally one little room :)

  6. Hahaha, yes that airport is almost dinky. ;-)

    I don't get sleeping late, at all. The only time I can even manage to sleep past 6:00 is if I'm sick. I usually wake up at 4:00 or 4:30 ish and that's my me time. Love having the early morning hours all to myself to potter around the house. Nicola can easily sleep till 6:30 or 7:00 if left uninterrupted, but on the odd occasion where she wakes up early with me, I almost feel cheeted!
