Losing It

My mad, crazy journey to health and beyond

Things I am thankful for

1. I am thankful that when this happened to my car, nothing happened to me.



2. I am thankful for friends who talk me out of making potentially big mistakes.


3. I am thankful for George Ezra concerts and picnic food and catching up with friends.


4. I am thankful for fabulousness, and glitz and glamour. And six-packs.


5. I am thankful for people who have gone out of their way to help me, from good friends, to acquaintances, to people I barely even know. Whoever said Capetonians are stuck-up and snobby and aloof was clearly smoking some low-grade crack.

6. I am thankful for my father organising cars and test drives and back-up plans all the way from Mauritius.

7. I am thankful for my sister and mother checking in on me everyday to make sure I haven’t topped myself out of frustration and boredom.

8. I am thankful for messages of support and kindness and cheerfulness.

9. I am thankful that my favourite band in the whole world is FINALLY coming to South Africa!!!! (If you don’t have their latest album yet, go out and buy it right now – it is miraculous, lack of banjo notwithstanding.)


10. And finally I’m glad that a weekend of ups, downs and everything in between had little effect on the scale:


11. Oh and bonus thankfulness – to Rouge Spa for yet again another fantastic toe makeover, in luscious Orly “Melt Your Popsicle”.¬†Watch out – I’ll do it too.

So much to be thankful for, and so much to look forward to over the coming week. May it be a blessed one.

Thank You
