True nostalgia is an ephemeral composition of disjointed memories.

The graph of life

Rob Lowe said, "I have a lot of great memories, but I can't imagine anything more exciting than the life I have now." Oh, I can so totally agree with him!

Looking back at my life, I can honestly say that the years have just gotten better and better. Of course there have been bad times, sad times, even devastating times, but like a graph, the ups far exceed the downs. The paths I've taken in life now seems like they were pre-destined, leading me through a maze of experiences. Some awesome, some not so good, but each with a lesson.

And it's what we learn from each lesson that further determines where the next path will lead us, whether our life graph will steadily go up or down.

58 Beverley Hills, Ballito - Saying hello!

Since selling and saying goodbye to my 3-bedroomed ground-floor unit in Malibu (Beverley Hills, Ballito, KwaZulu Natal) above in August 2003, I purchased a 3-bedroomed free-standing house in the same complex, on which construction was just starting in August 2003. I knew it would take a month or three and I just couldn't wait for it to get finished!

The foundations of my new house in August 2003

 I was going down to Ballito on a regular basis, once a week, to check on the progress, and six weeks later, in mid-October 2003, the building was nearly complete and up to roof height!

Soon they would be starting finishing off the inside; tiling, installing kitchen and bathrooms, built-in cupboards, ceilings, painting etc, I could hardly wait!

The amazing view from the front patio of the house over all the rubble and construction work. And luckily nothing else can be built in front of me, so the view is forever!

Catch me next time when I show the interior and finishes of the house. I'm already planning the dΓ©cor and furnishings and am totally excited!

Hope you have a fabulous day!
