back in the game

I apologies for my lack of posting over the last week and a bit. There were lots of things going on and my access to internet was intermittent leaving me unable to blog:( (or read my favourites!!) but I'm back and hopefully will be a bit more regular again :)

Well as I mentioned I started a new Job last week Wednesday at a children's home here. I was put straight into action in a management training workshop for my first three days and on the second day had a crisis intervention to deal with regarding a ill mom and 7 children (yes you read that right)  to attend to While mom got better... Everything worked out just fine but how's that for being thrown into the deep end :)

i would highly recommend starting a new job on a Wednesday :) it gives you enough time to get settled without making you so exhausted you want to die come weekend time :) 

Speaking of the weekend ... we took a trip back to our student days (and dragged all of our awesome friends with us :) )

We went to see a band called Heuwels Fantasties , who are a South African based Afrikaans outfit that we love!! 

We also got to see a (Heavy metal) band called "out of Nowhere"who opened for them. The band was a bit heavy for my taste but I could appreciate the musicality (if that makes sense ). It was LOUD and I realised that we are definitely NOT students anymore where loud music in confined spaces didn't phase us at all... 

there were a surprising amount of people there but none the less it was a great experience :)
I'm listening to the CD as I write this and reminiscing ;) 

you can check out the music video to one of there English tracks here

Oh and we called Monday (as instructed) to find out the status of our house plans .... The Lady at the municipality said some adjustments were needed on the plans and then couldn't find the file to tell us what they were (Typical hey :) !), she then said we should call our draughtsman as they sometimes will send it directly back to them to fix... well He didn't have them and after going there and making them look again they eventually located it and said we were missing paperwork (which was actually there).... Anyway the man handling it said he'd look into it and we'll hopefully get a final answer tomorrow !!!!! Hold thumbs :)

mop it up mondays
