Tuesday Talk on friendships and Trevor Noah

Gosh, I keep thinking, “today is the day I will blog” and then I get sidetracked and instead blog on OrganisingQueen, edit photos or read.

 So let’s just start, shall we? I’m literally the only one in the office - such a rarity – so I’m taking a few minutes to get writing!

Yesterday I had a great friend day.

A post shared by Marcia Francois (@marcia0608) on

  1. I caught up with a friend after travelling to a client meeting and it was so good to chat over a quick lunch in the soft winter sun. These catch ups are always too short but we both had to get back to work. And I always say, something is better than nothing. One of my secrets of adulthood. 
  2. Then I left a whatsapp voice message (best things ever!) for another friend wishing her happy birthday (I was a day late!) and she responded to say she’d emigrated! What the what?! So the minute I got home and started warming supper, I whatsapp called her and we had a good 35-minute chat. Divine! 
  3. It’s actually been quite the month. I wrote this on Instagram. And since then, I learned of so many more deaths. They have been very concentrated but also, I suppose it's this age...

But let's end on a lighter note.

I finished listening to Trevor Noah's book on Sunday night. We are going to have a Skype Group Chat soon-ish (after middle of August) so if you intend reading it, I highly recommend it and we can all talk about it.

D and I spoke about this book and nothing else for over an hour yesterday. So interesting to hear different people's points of view.

Let me know if you're in. If you commented on my Instagram post, ,no need to do so here - I will invite from the comments on this and that post.

Oh, I listened to the Audible version but D read the physical book. I obviously prefer a memoir narrated by the author so I'd recommend Audible if you can (only 8.5 hours).

What's been happening in your world?


  1. Oh it was soooo good to catch up. Am really going ot make a plan to listen to Trevor himself

  2. I'm quite old school I don't know if I would feel like I've read a book if I listen to it! I have to try to listen to one :)

    July was a shocker month death wise.... three people very close to me lost immediate family members all due to ill health and I found out about all of them within a space of three days :( :( May our days be long and filled with happiness and Good health and may the Lord protect us all

    1. Mrs FF, I have to say I used to have the same view, but I actually have listened to so many books int he last few months. For me I cannot listen while driving, but if I am working on something mindless, without interruptions, it actually works. You can get into it the same way.
      I used to be skeptical about audiobooks, but after giving it a try a few times, it works.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment and filling my love tank. I appreciate it!
