don't panic...

I think this sweet saying might just have saved my day/week. I've been feeling so stressed out lately, but somehow, reading this, it all makes sense. Thank you so much, Weekday Carnival.

Hello Mowbray!

Some of the surveys that I sent out yesterday afternoon; if you live in Mowbray, you just might have found one in your letter box!

Be excellent to each other

 Just saw this over on Present&Correct - it made me smile and reminded me so much of this one that I saw in London two years ago...

Excellent words, definitely something we should all try and stick to.

Archived lives

I've been doing a lot of research in to the history of Mowbray (a small suburb of Cape Town, where I live). I spent a morning at the National Archives last week and as I was paging through files and files of photos of Mowbray and old Cape Town, I came across these portraits. There were no captions, except for their names, but apart from that, I don't know the dates or anything else. I'm guessing they are pretty old though, maybe from the 1800's or early 1900's?

I just think these are really special.
