You know those experiences that just turn you off something?

Like the time I ate so many tomato flavored chips as a kid and it made me very sick. As a result I could not look at tomato chips for a good number of years.

Or like a friend of mine who can’t eat anything with sweet chilly sauce, cause she got food poisoning from something that just happened to contain the stuff. You have had one of those experiences right?

This morning we had a relatively rare thunder and hail storm in Cape Town. I grew up in JHB where storms like this mornings are commonplace during the summer (like a thunderstorm almost every day).

    This morning after receiving my awesome fathers day gift (sorry no pictures, most of it has been eaten) I picked CJ up and told her that despite the fact that it was Fathers day that the day was actually about her. After all if it were not for her (and later Alicia) I would not even be a father.

    I have not posted here in a while. Why, you ask…

    Priorities! Over the past 2 months I have had to decide many times to do one thing over another. Ok a lot of the time there is no real choice, its just that some things get done and some other things don’t get done.

    Andy Stanley (@AndyStanley on twitter) once said that there is always too much to do and not enough time to do it all, so you have to choose who you are going to cheat. Cause you are going to cheat someone or something so choose wisely.
