    After walking with a damaged right ankle for about six months, I finally had surgery on 26 January.

    What with everything happening in my life – busy work season (one of my clients is the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon), the kids having just started a new school year (including Da Son starting at a brand new school) – I considered moving the surgery until May. But in the end, I found myself booked in at Constantiaberg Mediclinic at 6am last Monday.

    It turned out to be a very difficult two days, and I am still struggling with pain management and the frustration of being immobile. But I don’t want to bore you with the details. Instead, here’s a summary of my surgery…

Sometimes one just needs a morning run along the beach to wash the worries away.
I'm in the audience tonight. Break a leg, #capetownfunnyfestival friends!!
Another night at a theatre, photographing these fine artists. Working on the @capetownfunnyfestival always warms my cold, cynical heart 💓 #capetownfunnyfestival #capewintertonic #comedy #funny #lovemyjob
Bruised knuckles thrill me so. #karate #feelingalive #maximumeffort
It's my favourite time of year. @capetownfunnyfestival is here. But first... Sound & light check. #capetownfunnyfestival #capewintertonic #lovecapetown #comedy
This pic was taken a few years back after I successfully completed my first swim loop in the ocean. After overcoming a massive fear of water and learning to swim, I grew to love #ows. Yesterday, I found myself knee-deep in the water, ready to dive in and take my first sea swim in a couple of years. But I lost my nerve. The smell of my wetsuit and the coldness of the water excited me, and awesome memories flooded back in an instant. But I didn't swim. I couldn't. What happened to the mermaid?
This is less than a litre of rain #water. Half boiled. Half cold. This is my bath. Due to a water meter issue, for which we have had no explanation from the City for almost a month despite many emails and social media DMs, we haven't had running water for three and a half weeks. I'm less than amused.
I'm registering @kraykrisofficial and @heidimeetsworld for the 14 July session. If you're interested to know what your kids' natural sporting talent is (beyond the usual), join us at the @sportanalytiksa sports day.
Mini-break. Such beauty right in our backyard. #durbanvillehills #weekend #getaway #lovecapetown
