Its Friday at last, and while I had the opportunity of staying cooped up at home, studying for Linux certification, and after having seen the weather in Helsinki (don’t ask why that’s a factor) I wisely chose instead to head out to Brad’s fiancée’s parents’ farm. (talk about a long string of possessive nouns). There I hope to enjoy a weekend filled with sunny South African weather, a “braaivleis”, and a large amount of “dop”(alcoholic drinks).

I think I’m also going to take my guitar and plenty of songs to learn. It should prove to be another relaxing weekend after spending last weekend watching South Africa play England at cricket.

In life it really is all about the simple pleasures.
