About Me

My photo
Last year I turned the big 3.0 and got married - I thought that was my milestone year. As it turns out, 2009 quickly overshadowed 2008 when my husband and I found out we were pregnant. I'm going to be experiencing everything for the first time as a woman and an expectant mother which is why I'm calling this my year of firsts. I'm senior editor for Marie Claire South Africa.

Couch potatoes

PVR is great people! We just got hooked up yesterday. Our friend of ours got arrested and Hein got him off without a criminal record! It was his gift of thanks to us. So now, as long as we've been fighting buying it, we had no choice but to get connected when we were presented with HD PVR DStv! You can pause rewind and fast forward live TV - isn't that swell! I remember we used to wonder why you couldn't do that a couple years back and now it's a reality!
Last night we recorded Damages. You see, instead of watching a tidbit every week, we're going to watch a whack of episodes at once. It's going to be sooo nice. And even though we'll be paying R559 a month for the luxury, I think it will be a huge saving on all the DVDs we hire a month. And of course we're going to have to cut down on eating and going out what with baby coming.

Eish! I hope we don't become couch potatoes. And that our reading (among other activities) doesn't suffer.


  1. Thanks for your comment.

    Zodwa, in a free-beautiful world, there is beauty and it's defined by ourselves, hence slices of beauty.

    Hope you enjoy watching, the pausing can be quite addictive in the beginning!
