Dear friends and other interesting creatures,
I have been doing really well. I have worked harder than I should and my body is demanding sleep. I have been on a very even playing field emotionally and less bipolar than normal. (As if one can turn that button on and off.)
Just in time for my first solo performance as I leave on a jet plane. My first solo flight without my husband working and me wanting a holiday, piggy backed onto one another, together. I am going to miss @SirNoid!
Sometimes it still takes my breath away that I have come relatively far in my chosen field in a short amount of time – Social Media Diva and Blogger…. Personality, friend, writer, Power Tweeter, Media and off course legend! (Inside joke with @InfiniteComPR)…
I could have done none of this without the support of my husband @SirNoid on every imaginable level. He doesn’t like the limelight (in which I become alive) so he is seldom with me at events, but he has given me wings, financial support and freedom to do my thing. I think it has been a very selfless thing to do on his part. Huge gratitude for being at my side, discussing, offering advice, encouraging – knowing that you can’t hold a moonbeam in your hand and loving me enough to know I come home. :) Oh and invite him to value weekends :)
My parents and children have been a constant cheerleader squad. @kylajeanv @KevvieCartman @LJ_Cadger @VictoriaT99 especially has only loved and encouraged… ‘That’s my mom’ is worth more awards anyone can offer. When I am able to share opportunities with them that social media gifts me, I am so incredibly happy.
In the same vein, my BFF @WilhelmNiekerk has been a block of solid bear support. Quick to judge my garments and in two seconds making me look all better, Wil has attended many functions with me. He is a man with knowledge and a master at playing a supportive role while equally contributing. He always makes me shine. Thank you my friend.
Maybe when I grow up, I can be a proper Social Media Journalist. *wink* I have SO much to learn but when you surround yourself with greatness, it rubs off. (I give the best hugs in the business baby!)
I have had lots of help, plenty favours given and received. I’ve been hurt, I’ve been picked up and together have kicked ass. I’ve been embraced by a ‘tweet eat tweet’ business. I have learned all that glitter is not gold and some will only ever smile to your face.
I have met incredible people. I love you all very much and want to thank you. I am petrified I forget someone! I am desperately trying to acknowledge those who at the core understand who I am, and how best to use my skills in that capacity. I never have to tone it down. I am good enough just as I am.
My mentor and friend, @RichSimmondsZA whom leads and guides. I continue to learn, kick your ass when you need it as you do mine. It is a privilege to know you as I do.

About 18 000 long. Hehehe (cow I am, but I worked for them dammit!)
For every invitation. Every project you include me in, or suggest me for because I am the right Wench for the job… OH sometimes I am also cheap, but never easy! I am forever touched and deeply grateful that you welcome signing your name next to mine.
I wish you many followers, awesome projects, that light bulb moment on stage when it all just comes together! You are all so incredibly gifted in what you do. I am in awe!
I thank you for your time, as I know you will thank me for mine, and we will never forget it.
I wish you a spot light.
ps. Tim, Bee – I wish you didn’t die! Look! I promised you I wouldn’t live a little life. We up to sparkles! You rock that underworld… #friendsindeath !
