December was a rough month for me, strange considering the fact that my long-distance boyfriend returned from Germany for the month to visit me. But alas, romantic reunions cannot counteract the movements of the planets in our solar system. I read my horoscope for December 2010 on astrologyzone.com ( i dont usually beliefe this shit, but seriously, do yourself a favour and go to this site. very accurate) anyway, and she warned me about December because Mercury would be in retrograde all month.
I didn’t believe her. Seriously lady, don’t tell me Im going to have a shitty December when my brother is getting married, i am on holiday for a month and my boyfriend is coming to visit bringing his big cuddly body along with him, amongst other things. And Christmas – i suppose stopped being awesome when I got a job and had to start using my own money to buy presents.
Mercury aside, i survived, and there were obviously some very awesome moments.
-Fetching my love from the airport.
-Days in rooiels with him swimming in the sea, lying in the sun, walking, reading, sleeping, trapping spiders, braai-ing and watching dexter, entourage and modern family when it was too windy to go outside.
-My brothers wedding.
-Lunch at Pomegranate in Stellenbosch with the geese. Amazing – highly recommended, best piece of Norwegian Salmon I have ever consumed, ever.
-Reunions with old friends who are scattered all over the world (which will soon be me! – yay 🙂 )
-Visits to the cinema to watch Megamind and Little Fockers.
-Having to shop in Cavendish for Christmas presents – so.help.me.god i will never do that again.
-Driving over 3000km’s to visit family and go to weddings. ie: a little too busy for my liking.
-Being man-down with tummy bug last three days of holiday in 38 degree heat.
-38 degree heat.
But all and all I think I managed to slap that retrograding mercury out of my orbit. Most of the time 😉
Happy new year folks.
