Wow, it has been ages since my presence has been in the blog-o-sphere, I'm sorry.
I missed music Monday because well it's Tuesday now but not to fear the music is near! I found this really brilliant new Indie/acoustic band: The Icarus Account. They really are just superb so do your thing! Go Facebook them, Tweet them, Google them, Youtube them. You fill find them, so social media your hearts out and go love them too!
 
Another great band is Beach Party. They are from South Africa and they are just great. Their Albums are free to download off of the interwebz so give it a squiz and be amazed my friends!
That is all for now!

Super Tube Adventures

Here are some highlights of my time at Super Tubes for you avid beach lovers out there!







The Wimpy Crisis

So Super Tubes lived up to its expectations, lucky for us! Within the three weeks of being there so much happened and I cannot wait to tell you all about my epic journey about my three week adventure of being out weighed by 9 guys and only 4 ladies. There are some things a person wishes they could un-see after a surf trip such as this one.
Let me begin with the car ride: we depart the lovely land of Melkbosstrand and 4 am, bright and early & all is well while everyone is still fast asleep the trouble comes as breakfast approaches...the time is upon us and we pulled at the garage and made our way to the Wimpy (not sure if you have heard of Wimpy but, its not my favourite eating spot). Finding a table was particularly easy and sure enough we were ready to order. i guess the lack of food had made all the boys a tad exhausted so things were pretty peaceful but this wouldn't last long: the food had arrived.
Within second the volumes exploded and the chaos began. the first incident was the play ground. our table was located right next to the indoor kiddies playroom and before I knew it the guys had made a little friend so to say. they began watching this little red head boy trying to climb up the slide with an endless fail and sure enough he saw them mocking him and this is where the trouble began.
The red head boy went berserk! he started off mild with a little face pulling and a repetitive thumbs down but boy did he waist no time. he soon enough began running up to the window and putting his face against it and calling out names at them and they let this slide for a while as he continued to do this then run back up the slide for about ten minutes. Then my friend Dale decided to get even: when the time was right and the boy was happily retreated up the blue slide, Dale quickly made his way into the play room and in front of the slide. His timing couldn't have been more perfect. As he reached his spot the boy had just gotten off the slide, unaware of Dale's presence but the horror that followed on his face was timeless. The boy turned around only to see this tall guy standing in his way. This little boy got such a fright and shot back at least 2 meters while simultaneously letting out a girly shriek  It was safe to say that this little boy was done menacing with us after that surprise.
And this was before we even reached our destination.

Blue Ocean Cylinders

I'm not sure about many others but today, in this quaint little town of Melkbosstrand, Cape Town, school holidays begin for us all. But my fellow friends this is far more exciting than the usual holiday because what Easter holidays mean is Jeffrey's Bay! (cue excited screams) At precisely 4:00 am this coming morning my family as well as some lovely friends, will depart on our adventure to land of never ending  ocean barrels and magical waves, it really is brilliant. Supertubes is the most well known of surf spots on this coast and it really is a little paradise I cannot wait to share and experience once again with my lovely friends. So for those of you who are ocean lovers out there, stay posted for some really radical barreling pictures of some epic mind-blowing surfing adventures that are yet to come!

Creative free-flow

This is one of those posts where all that is going to happen is well nothing, a cyclical passage of words which may or may not impact your life. I'm quite new to the blogger world and I'm not entirely sure of how it all works so I'm not sure if my interpretation fits the criteria but this is my space to be myself despite any conformities expected of me, despite rules, despite responsibilities and despite the creative block that accompanies all of these factors. Here on this blog I simply want to escape and create a free flowing stream of expression, creativity without judgement and a loving environment.
So I have decided that this blog has no specific reason for existing besides that. Here you will find endless inspiring drips and drabs, whether it be how to paint a cat or how to tie a bow it could even simply be this: a passage of writing which I feel I want to be shared and heard, this is a space of freedom simple as that.

The Magical Paper Bird

http://www.origami-instructions.com/origami-crane.html
You're welcome, I'm sure everyone loves making paper creations to fill up their holiday free time as much as I do jeepers!

These are my first two origami birds of the holidays so far, I hope this inspires others to make some lovely creations of their own because even though, I will not lie, these two took me quite a while (i'm technologically challenged when it comes to reading internet instructions) I finished and its such a super dooper kiff* little art to know how to do. Excuse me while I go and fill my room with these paper birds quick stix, cheerio fellas!

*kiff - some local Cape Town talk for all of you meaning cool or rad.
