The time is NOW….

Up to now.. I feel that I’ve missed so many opportunities to make my first post… but tonight, it just feels right…..

Today started with a frantic race of getting my washing done, cleaning up my car, doing some shopping for the R50 prezzie’s for tonight’s function, getting to the birthday party and then…. Slunch!

Let me start with my usual anxiety and anticipation of going to a “do” – not knowing anyone – then being able to hit up the socialite in me and FIT it…..

Alas, without breakfast – I passed by the Wimpy and put down a burger knowing that the next thing to touch my lips would be wine….

So I arrived at Johan’s birthday and realised  that I’m the the only English boy in town.. (Here I go again)  No problem… I did Afrikaan’s in school and everything from there would just be a breeze…. Well.. it wasn’t… Half the conversation’s just blew straight over my head, but at the end, I managed to keep up to date with all the lingo and ‘fit’ right in… (Important note here which I’ll explore in a later post!)

Moving on  - lunch was just amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better spit than what Johan and Jan splashed out for everyone… Two of my most dearest friends who are always at the top of entertaining and bringing folk together….

Then the next party started…. although it was ending – for me it was still starting…

There was one thing that touched me when I walked in with my partner – everyone had a glow in their eyes… (and no – I’m not talking about the alcohol!)  There was a happiness that came from everyone and an underlying love… True friends, and new friends may never be forgot… They are presented so frequently and easily that you just have to grab on to them and ride a journey with them – no matter which way they take you….

So these are the Slunch guys…. Thanks for ending off my evening with such a blast…. A special thanks to Jodene and Greg for bringing me in.
