So I'm back home after an amazing trip to UK to be Em's birthday present - thanks to her awesome friends! I can't tell you how much it meant to me to see her, and even though the trip was short I saw enough of the UK to remind me of how lucky I was to spend most of my life there, and how lucky I am to be living where I do now! (If that makes sense)Thank you again to Em's friends. And also to Transformer Man, Mr Tickle and Nightmare - your costumes were indescribably stunning!
Back to the humdrum routine: we have an MI5 spy and his family staying with us at the moment, who have gone quad biking in the mountains today. I have spent part of the morning dodging Cape Cobras up at a local farm which is to be the venue for the next Swellendam Horse Show. The three students are busy 'working' in our Study Centre - though teech (me) has niftily intercepted a few Facebook shenanigans.
I don't have many photos of my trip as I thought I had burned them all to CD, but in fact had only managed to put one photo on the CD, before cleverly wiping my card. But here are a few:

You don't want to know how much that Transformer costume cost to make! :P

Was well worth it though - and also nice to meet you in person!

Also, I suspect he's not actually an MI5 spy.

That's just his cover story.

It was lovely to meet you. Let us know next time you're over and we'll try and sort out playing a gig whilst you're here.

Also, I wondered if you'd heard of these guys. I'm doing some work on their website at the moment and it occurred to me that you might have dealt with them...
