Hello, how are you all doing out there!
As my first entry of 2009, I wanted to apologise to you all for having abandoned you for the last while.
There is a good reason why I have not been in blog land. Excuses, excuses.
Lalie and I welcomed this little person into the world three months ago. Life has not been the same for us since.
Having a child is no child’s play, believe me. Since Ariella Mohau arrived I have had more sleepless nights than when I was writing my thesis. All this added to the pressure of work demands and a wife who was really in need of some TLC, I mean all the time. I never thought a baby would need so much attention. Yeah you read about it books etc, etc but nothing, and I mean nothing prepares you for the actual event.
Our lives are only going back to normality now, and we are getting used to the princess’ ways. We are so grateful to God for such a precious treasure. Yes raising a child is a BIG challenge but our hearts sing with joy every time we lay our eyes on her.
Outside of my home, well… a lot has happened in the world in the last number of months: COPE, Obama presidency, the financial crisis. I aim to look back at some of those issues, even though we are already into a new year.
I most definitely have a view or three on these matters.
I hope that the year has started well for all of you and that you are keeping those still “somewhat fresh” New Year’s resolutions.
I am back and here to stay. Later
