What a privilege to spend easter with divine friends in the pristine drakensberg mountains at Cobham near Underberg.
“Die heuwels fantasties”.
Easter camping on the riverside breathing in the fresh air up there, diving into streams of clear fresh water. Children playing, friending new friendies. Braais and “braai-pie” – thanks Suzette – watched your you tube clip and was indeed a crowd pleaser and so easy.
What a privilege.
Not to be controversial or anything, I honestly believe that as south africans at large we are extremely talented and have the greatest potential on this green earth of ours.
I watched “die wonderwerker” on the weekend on showmax, a story about Eugene Marais. Oh my word, our actors! our people, our film makers – I could wax lyrical and then some.
I just love Karen Zoid and her republic of zoid afrika. She show cases the best of us!!!
Again and again and again.
Opens our eyes to the beauty around us. Allows us to dream harder, believe.
WE so can. We are amazing people. Resilient and talented and beautiful and amazing
My absolute best is at the end of the show what one thing would you wish for OUR country – watch and be inspired – I am!!!

AN idea of the feeling you get at our new practice :
So I have blogged about this before, but they are upon us now.
What should you be doing/not doing or doing differently during the holidays.
We all know that glucose control is one way in the week and quite a different way on the weekend and holidays. This is partly because we are human and life is well just not always easy and letting your hair down usually goes with a bit of alcohol (if you are old enough) and a bit of cheating (dare I say it).
So all things considered, where does this leave you with your diabetes?
Consider it. Be mindful of it. Carb count it. Accurately.
With the holidays come a little bit of time – that we don’t usually have. Choose to exercise – must be something you love. Be creative. Horse ride or bike ride or dance!
Factor the exercise in. IF you are not sure how to do this, consult someone. Even if you are on holiday – trust me most of us (health care folk) are at work : dieticians, GP’s, nurse educators etc.
Don’t just go ape on yourself. It’s so much harder to get back the lost ground.
Enjoy yourself but be fair about it. Restraint is required.
Give yourself a Christmas present of being present more often. This will carry through to the new year and be a wonderful asset.
Top sites that I feel are invaluable : http://www.fatsecret.co.za – south african ,excellent for carb counting and so much more!, pinterest has awesome pictograms of diabetes.
Feel free to share your best app, resource with me.
