So why “Notes from Africa”?

Well to be honest, all the cool, clever, descriptive things I had thought about had already been taken on WordPress. Maybe someday, if I keep writing, I’ll move this blog to a different site where I can call it whatever I want.  But in the meantime it’s going to be “Notes from Africa”. The “notes” because I don’t want to be committed to writing long, organised, serious posts. The “from Africa” because that’s where some people think I live (I do, but Africa is a big place). I’m hoping that’s because it sounds romantic in an “Out of Africa” kind of way, and not because they don’t know any better!

    I’ve just read your about me page. Whereabouts in SA are you living? My ex-in laws live in Knysna and my kids get to go there every year for their holidays. Lucky things. I’ve only been once when they lived in Pretoria but I loved it all the same. Such an amazing country.

    As for the migraines. You have my sympathy. I hate them. I clearly don’t get them as bad as yours but having been debilitated for 2 weeks because of them…well, let’s just say that was more than enough for me to seek some serious help from my doctor.

    I’m really enjoying your blog and I agree, Staffies are wonderful dogs. My daughter has one too!

      Thanks for visiting my blog!

      Small world! We lived in Knysna for 10 years, and are still living close by.

      Migraines are miserable. I hope you get some help.
