MotherShip

Thank you - you are keeping me going!!
Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying the stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying the stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying the stairway to heaven.

Almost time to say goodbye to 2007!

Being back at work today is extremely frustrating!! I long to be on the beach or to be back at home in JHB! Lying by the pool drinking a G&T with Mom and Dad! I must never do this again - go to work the day after coming back from Joburg - it is a killer - way too depressing - such a shock to the system!!

It was a great couple of days! The start and end was appalling - thanks to our bloody, incompetent, unpleasant, awful national carrier - South African Airways - you have to worst group of staff I have ever encountered. If you cant smile at your customers and be friendly at a time of year when everyone is feeling festive and excited - get another job - bunch of arrogant smug, stupid freaks!! Never, ever again - you cant even calm down when finally on your plane with a gin and Tonic - they no longer serve spirits, only warm old beer and shit cheap wine!! Shocking- South African Airways - flying from one of the best wine growing regions of the world and they serve cheap nasty rubbish with ice!! Never again. Kalula, One Time, British Airways - you now have my business. It may be only three or four trips a year - but I am consistent!

Time to be hopeful and happy and make plans for this year. Right now I cant, I am just too down!!

One last Christmas pic for the season:
