My wife ….

Kennith sent this email around yesterday – he did not include me on the mailing list.   I started getting email comments from friends and initially I though “what?” – but then I realised what he had done.

I thought it was very sweet, and it is really nice that he is proud of my little achievements.

So here is the email so you can also know:

While my dear wife will go ape if Georgia does not climb in the bath when asked, she does likes to act all “Cool, calm and collected” about her personal achievements so let me share with you some of her latest achievements. 

1)      She has started her photography dream –  having done 4 or 5 shoots already – http://celestebarlow.wordpress.com/ – not sure why she has not posted the wedding shoot photos yet – but it has started.

2)      She was selected for a make-over feature in a HUISGENOOT type magazine – as winner of the Parenting Blog of the Year – and this should direct more feet to her blog as well.

3)      And most excitedly, she has been asked by one of the parenting magazines to write a 600 word article for their magazine – we are not sure whether this could become an on-going feature or a once off, but it is another step forward in her dream of journalism. Once published please ensure that everyone writes a letter to the editor about the “fresh new journalist and her honest, refreshing outlook on parenting”

So I think making headway on two dreams in one month is well worth a special mention. Well done bunny, proud of you!

Also Celeste and Alice are still signed up for the 2Oceans half marathon at the end of April, so there is another achievement just waiting in the wings…

 Kennith you are a good egg!

      Thanks, you have not missed much, I changed the look recently – the previous one just did not work for me and I kept staring at it and going “work you stupid thing” and sadly it was time to adios it’s arse.

      I will let you know when I have written the article and it has been accepted. It is probably a much bigger deal to me than it is to them …. but it is still pretty huge in my little world! But you being a Radio Super Star and all might not realise as you gaze down from your vantage point of fame and fortunte at the little people …. like me ….

  7. Wowzer! So happy for you! Really that is such good news! I looked at your photographs and they are really just too amazing! Will you shoot me & Ben when I come to CT next month? I am completely willing to bribe you with wine.

      You know the way straight to my heart …….. more importantly you and me are so getting together when you get to Cape Town – we can do an awkward first date and then you can really see my under developed social skills first hand!!

      • I am coming mid March. I am thinking lots of wine sans kids and deep drunken philosophical conversations about topics of absolute no relevance. Maybe some kareoke. Maybe Mc Donalds at 3am. Just saying. Bring spare clothing, a construction hat, and the details of your next of kin.

    Ok, will remember not to start my letter off with Celeste and her “good egg” said …..

    Remember to keep us posted re: which mag

  14. That is so sweet!

    I’m so excited for your regarding both the photography and the article. Can’t wait to read it! In which mag will it be?

    As for the make-over….is that why you were at One and Only?

    I’m so happy about all these good things coming your way after the miserable time you had towards the end of last year.

    Here’s to newer and better things!

      Excellent, keep it natural though, must not look too “prepared” and prompted.
