Have you ever taken notice of how you try so hard to re-establish a relationship to no avail? No, don’t get too many ideas; I know what you’re thinking. Am not talking about that kind of relationship, am actually referring to friendship, and an attempt to reunite with long lost friends; especially from school- elementary/primary, secondary/high school, tertiary institutions and friends from your old neighbourhood. Am sure am not alone on this…So, I asked myself this question, “why hold on when you can and should simply let go”? Answers?  Anyone? I’ve got a few of mine…read on! Alright, perhaps I shouldn’t limit this subject to friends alone. It happens in families too; extended or close relations. They say out of sight is not out of mind. And that absence makes the heart grow fonder (or is it further). Am sure some people would bet to differ and I can’t really blame them for this difference of opinion. I personally feel the foundation of a relationship has a lot to do with connecting a…

Home is where the heart is...

I may not have everyone’s definition of “no place like home”, but I sure know what it means to me. Hubby’s been holding a professional training at a renowned venue here in Boksburg, very close to the O R Tambo International airport. The training is finally concluded and delegates are almost on board back home. Whenever the training takes place like this, he asks that I and the kids join him for the last two (three this time) days, which usually falls on a weekend. So here we are again, but all I want to do now is - GO BACK HOME. I can’t really say why really, but I think I’ve been missing home as soon as I spent the first night here. Perhaps, it may also be because hubby has not been present besides just coming to bed late at night. It also happens to fall in the month of Ramadan and everyone’s fasting except me. Yes, am sure that’s another reason I’ve been homesick. I’ve had to go for breakfast alone and dinner has been more of improvising. It is more homely than any other hotel we’v…
I do feel like I abandoned my blog,but I didn't.At least not deliberately,it just so happened.I cannot recall how many times I have had thoughts I wanted to update.But you know,things happen.In my part of the world,internet accessibility (affordability of course) still needs a lot of improvement.So when it wasn't an issue with my broken down laptop, it was a case of poor and annoyingly slow connection.I even attempted blogging on my phone to no avail.But now, I've got the a functional laptop and a fast connection,though I may not have the will to update regularly for other reasons (such as health&wellbeing). Am not doing any serious studying now as circumstance hindered that progression.But it is something to be grateful for and so-no complaints but gratitude. The holy month of Ramadan commenced today and fasting has started.Since my lifestyle's practically a typical recluse, I may not be seeing much people around me fasting, except from the T.V perhaps. The kids have…
