Personal Post: I have been a very bad book lion and haven't been reading or blogging. FORGIVE ME.


I've barely been blogging or reading lately because things have been HECTIC here and I haven't settled into a routine yet that allows me to do all my schoolwork/blog/study/read and participate in other hobbies. So bare with me! 

I also have a truckload of schoolwork to catch up with that has to be finished very shortly and which I'll have to write exams on in October so UGH, poor me.

My brother and his girlfriend have also been visiting for the past two months and it was amazing seeing my brother again after not having seen him for three years! I spent a lot of time with them, therefore not reading or blogging much , but I don't regret it as I don't know when I'm going to see them again and I really wanted to spend as much time as possible with them!

Then, last week Saturday, my best friend who has been my best friend since I was eight surprised me with a visit on Saturday! She lives in a different part of South Africa so it was absolutely wonderful that she flew over to surprise me! She stayed for a week, we had an amazing time and it's going to be the last time I see her til she visits me in England next year!

This is my brother's car that they're taking across Africa and he took me and my friend across sand dunes and it was SO FUN!!! I really want to do it again! At first it's quite terrifying because you feel like you're going to tip over, but it didn't and I'm still here so YAY!

We're also moving to England the end of the month and we're packing and all my book boxes are sealed but we still have a LOT to do and I have to say bye to all my friends and everything, so I'm really sorry if I neglect my blog. Hopefully things will calm down soon though! 

So there's just an explanation as to why I haven't been around much - but hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things soon!
