I honestly can’t believe that our 3-week trip to South Africa is over. One moment we were still heading out to Johannesburg, and the next, we’re back in London. Crazy how quickly time just flies by when you’re on holiday. Clearly, there’s something in the universe that makes holiday hours feel shorter, or is it just me?

Firstly, before I continue – thank you!  Seeing all of you was great! Catching up on all the little twists-and-turns that make up life is something Elaine and I love doing. Hearing your stories (some for the 7th time), hanging out over a beer and pretending your kids are cute was a lot of fun. We hope to make another South African trip somewhere in 2018.

So it’s officially 2017 and we have a few things to look forward to:

  • In two weeks’ time, we’ll be moving to a new apartment! It’s a newly-built, luxury apartment in Wembley that comes with a cinema room, free gym, roof-top terrace, communal gardens and a 24/7 concierge – how cool it that?
  • We bought new furniture, including a nice and big corner couch, a custom built designer chair, a TV and TV stand, a king size mattress and 2 bedside tables. These will be delivered over the next few weekends.
  • We also shipped our beautiful king size bed and last few boxes of kitchenware from South Africa. If all goes well, we should have it here in the UK by mid-March.
  • Elaine’s birthday is coming up, so we’ll take the day off to celebrate her BIG THREE OH!
  • We’re getting another visitor, Mia! She’ll be staying at ‘Hotel Elaine’ in February. We can’t wait to see her again.

To top it all off, we also have two confirmed trips coming up, the first one is to Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Los Angeles and San Francisco in April, the second trip is in June, but more on that later.

Have a blessed 2017
