High five!

Egg donation number five has been confirmed and a recipient has already chosen me – all within less than a month after the last donation. (See how many people in South Africa need donors?! Seriously, if you haven’t yet – visit Nurture. Now.)

This donation is going to be slightly different – it’s not at the Cape Fertility Clinic, but at another hospital. I’m a little nervous this time round because of the new venue, new staff etc, I think – but I’m sure once I get the ball rolling I’ll be fine again. I’m not good with change 😉

Otherwise, not much to report. I’m currently house- and dog- and cat-sitting in the suburbs, which has meant lots of time by the swimming pool with my Kindle.

And Christmas shopping is (almost) done and dusted (It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t leave at least SOMETHING until Christmas Eve, right?!)

I can’t believe we’re almost at the end of 2012. What a year. What a roller-coaster of a year.

We were Born This Way

It’s been an… Interesting week. Emotional. Extremely painful. Stupid decisions were made. Lots of weird things happened. Some amazing things, too. I’m too tired to write about it properly. But, in highlights…

New running shoes. Yes, they're pink and purple. Look at me not caring.

I got an award at our office function - and a great little speech from my CEO. I may have teared up a little. MAY.

Finding adulthood in the strangest places

So, I’ve been on a mini Home Improvement spree over the last few weeks – which has seen me purchase a Desk, a Chair and a Full-Length Mirror, among other things. Surprisingly grown-up, look-at-me-being-a-working-professional things.

However, the thing that made me feel MOST like an adult was this…

Silly poster

A completely frivolous wall-hanging. It’s not art, but it’s something pretty and it hangs on my wall now.

Strange, how the smallest things can make you feel like a grown-up – and the biggest things can leave you feeling very, very small.
