And so it is that the All Cape has come to an end for my team. It has been an eventful week but very rewarding. Playing in the Southern Cape at 4 different clubs was a challenge as the greens run a lot slower than our home club. But the friendships developed over these last couple of days will last a lifetime. So watch this space as I am almost home so all the pic's and stories will follow shortly.......

Today I leave for Knysna on the start of a brand new adventure. For me, going on a sports tournament is a brand new adventure as I never had the opportunities growing up to be able to participate in any sort of camps and sports tours. Various factors in my life prevented me from being able to have such opportunities, so please forgive me for my excitement. I will post a daily diary just to make sure you don't miss out on any of my little tour......

Love this quote by John Lennon. It reminds me of the time my brother was asked to draw "plates" in school, and when he drew 2 round patterned plates for his teacher, she grew irate and said to him, plates man, don't you know what plates are??? Girls wear their hair in 'plates'. Being a bit overwhelmed, boet decided not to say a word but mum was called in as he was insubordinate and would not listen to instruction. My mum, of course tended to agree with boet and said he had drawn beautiful plates, which of course made teacher even more irate. Mum, relented and decided to explain to the afrikaans accented teacher that had she asked her son to draw plaites, and not plates he would have indeed done the correct drawing as having 3 big sisters with long hair he knew exactly what that was. I guess my point is that life is so full of misinterpreted conversations, misguided quotes and heated arguments, we tend to forget what we are all here for.....

How many times a day do we say 'thank you'? I know we say it a lot, it just rolls off our tongues when we receive something, pay for something etc. But how many times do we say thank you for something and really mean it? When I came across the pic I am posting today, something triggered in my brain. Those 2 little words with a huge meaning, just pass my lips without a thought many times a day.
So I leave you today with this implanted in your brain. When you say thank you today for any reason, stop and think and say it from your heart.

I often sit in front of my pc wondering how to move forward. Sometimes one is so bogged down in life and just trying to live it, one forgets the basics. But they never leave you, the little life lessons learnt from great people, like your parents, just sometimes need a little nudge, and there we have it, forward motion.
So as I sit in front of my pc this morning, readying myself for a busy day ahead, I just clear my head, get back to basics and put my best foot forward...... (thanks mum, you are definitely on my shoulder today :) )
Have a fabulous day everybody...........
