  1. #myrightfoot surgery – a storyboard


    January 31, 2015 by crazymadliving

    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…

Humility is the first rule of martial arts. Either you learn humility quickly, or you leave because your ego can't handle losing repeatedly. - Georges St-Pierre

Karate: Third week
... Guess it's too soon to expect to transform from #homersimpson to @christmasabbott, but a girl can always dream.

#iquitsugar #sugarfree #sleekgeek #bodytransformation #lifestyle #fat2fit #ironmanatee Going to have to figure out what is on which memory stick at some stage. #work #chaos ☑️ Passport
☑️ NYC emergency cash
☑️ Birthday Itinerary

Methinks it's time to organise some adventures with Wyrd Sis @fazielahwilliams in preparation for our actual trip soon-soon.

#newyork #nyc #travel #housewyrd #plans White belt. Because everyone has to start somewhere. 
#karate #beginner #love #trexarms #humility #technique #martialarts #dojo #samurai #fight #hardwork #training Wow... That was a physical and mental challenge. Survived my first dojo session. Just.

#karate #dead #fighting Oh hai Johnny and Lisa! How awesome were these random strangers at tonight's special screening of #thedisasterartist ?!? Thank you for the tickets, @fortresszar - I loved it! This is without a doubt one of THE best #magic stage shows I've seen. Watching @theillusionistslive as a normal audience member left me mesmerised. Watching it as a fellow #magician blew my mind. I should have gotten tickets for @capetownkidz - @kraykrisofficial and @heidimeetsworld.

It really sets the bar for local performers who, in my opinion, don't push the boundaries enough. We need fewer jazz hands magicians and more diversity.

Cape Town, BOOK YOUR SEATS at @computicket and head to @grandwestsa this week.

#lovecapetown #illusion #magic #entertainment #theatre Only my @fazielahwilliams understands my #newyork 🗽 obsession. And as I'm finally clearing my desk to move the remainder of my old office upstairs to my new one, I'm once again feeling rather sweaty-eyed at the thought of my amazing birthday 🎁. ❤️❤️
