Project 365 – after a lazy weekend

i’ve had a lazy weekend chilling with friends, mostly beside water of some sort, and with cool liquid in hand… just the way it should be after the slightly hectic week i had – suddenly everyone was back on the roads and back in the office! here’s the week then though ๐Ÿ™‚

Project 365 – 12 to 17 January 2010

Haiti

on hen parties and being a life drawing model

Iโ€™ll always remember the bend in the M5 where I said yes. It was while I was driving on the long straight stretch of the M5 just after the Koeberg interchange that I answered the call which posed the seemingly casual question of, โ€œwhat are you doing on the 1st of January?โ€ โ€œNothing that I…
