lists of 5: 5 things I loved this week

1. An hour spent happily spending some birthday vouchers at premium art supply store The Deckle Edge.

The rain thundered on the roof, I had nowhere else in the world to be and nothing to do but stock up on gorgeous ribbons and paper and pens... lovely.

2. The arrival of a new friend, a baby boy delivered to two of our best friends safely and soundly on that very same rainy morning (and by god how happy was I to be buying tissue paper rather than having a baby?!).

No pics yet alas but I've been smiling inside all week thinking of his new pink snuffliness and the grand adventure our friends have just embarked on.

3. SA getting a new Minister of Health! At last we chucked Manto, by crook or by hook. Alas she's still around but at least finally there's some hope for the scores of sick & infirm in this country, the state of our health system in general and the hundreds of over-worked and underpaid health workers nationwide. Go Barbara Hogan!

thanks Zapiro for helping us laugh through our tears!

4. Watching my girlie socialise with her peers, this week they happened to all be boys. And especially watching her interact with the children of friends I've known since I was a child. 

And so the wheel turns...

5. Ummm... I forget what number 5 is. Shit. Oh wait, it could be the gourmet pizza I've just ordered to abate a pizza craving which has raged within me all week.

Yup, I think that's it.
