Thinking back on a magical Christmas in July

Did it really happen? Can a place truly be so magical?

I am yet again back in Joburg and after an especially hectic few weeks I am stopping to pause (due to a lovely poem written by one of my twitter friends). I cannot believe that I have not reflected on the magic time I had in my favourite place. So here it is.…

Back Home

Alas, all magic moments have a limited shelf life and I find myself back in Joburg hankering after a chilled (quite cold and laid back) existence in Hogsback. Yes, I know, we have to return to reality at some point. But that does not mean that I cannot lament the fact. I will moan and grown till I get to go back again in two weeks time. At least this time I have something to look forward to.

Where was I again? Oh yes the last time I did a Hoggie reflection was on Thursday… Continue

Hiding in Hogsback

I wish I could stop time......

We (me, Sandra and niece Elrieka) arrived in Hogsback on Sunday night and it is now Thursday and I do not have a clue where the time flew!

What did we do on Monday? Let me try to remember. Oh yes we had a walk in the garden and then discovered that we do not have hot water. The blessing of life in Hogsback is that things go with the flow of the seasons and apparently the frost and snow of two weeks earlier (it always snow before and… Continue

The HA!man experience in Hogsback

I attended the Ha-man show last night at the Edge and I must say I am glad that I finally got to see him and Lahra in action. A real inspirational treat!

I was a bit disappointed with the small number of people attending but then thought that it was, after all, a Sunday night when most sensible (and we are all so sensible here ;-) ) Hogsbackians retreat into warm beds or take in the Sunday night movie on DSTV. Also, I would imagine that Francois’s eclectic brand of symphonic… Continue

Hello Maggie

Thanks for the message! Where in JHB do you reside? I live in Lonehill.
I am off to Hogsback this weekend to see who I can meet up with that can help with the wedding plans. Do you have anyone that you can recommend for me to contact and meet up with on Friday with regards to Photography, Hair etc - I chatted to Ken, but he does not do wedding photography.

About Me
Maths teacher trainer,lifelong learner and web 2.0 activist. I am passionate about helping everyone getting to grips with technology that can help us to colloborate and learn.
I love Hogsback because......
It is paradise! I fell in love with Hogsback the very first time I drove up the mountain for a breakfast, stayed for the weekend and had to be dragged back to Joburg. After aquiring a piece of paradise here I cannot wait to come and live here permanently! I have subsequently discovered that the people who live here are incredibly interesting, creative and inspiring. I have also had the most devine meals here...
