Here I am

My aching ears and runny nose have done nothing to ruin my daydreams and thoughts on my well-deserved break with C.

It was so awesome to reconnect after all those months. Incredible, actually. Nothing beats blommetjies in Clanwilliam and a lazy drives to Franschoek and Darling. A visit to Robben Island which I suspect C enjoyed m0re than I did, me being a terminal motion-sickness sufferer and all. Some clubbing and lots of eating out. I only cooked once. And managed to slip in reading a magazine while doing it too! Ha!

Picnic in Kirstenbosch. Little children chasing Guinea Fowl (C’s been looking a restaurant that sells this bird cooked forever). I suggested hunting them down in front of Gnome’s parent’s house! Chats about our life. Our future. When I showed him Lion’s Head, he couldn’t believe I’d been to the top. He marvels at Table Mountain every time he sees it. I see it every day and never look twice. With him, I appreciate things more, which is why I enjoyed being with him alone so much.

Surprise day was fun. We both agreed to a surprise day in the middle of last week. His heart-wrenching love-note being the biggest gift of all the presents.

And then it was all over too soon. I miss him and am fearful of falling into my melancholy state from five months ago. However I do have that thesis urgently pending.

I am officially going into social hibernation for Thirty Five Days.
