Back on my feet…

Me and my younger colleague… older one took the photo, we had a teambuilding day…

Wednesday I went to Supersport Park, to see the first day of South Africa vs Australia, Test Cricket. Then I still thought we will do something worth seeing. But… at the moment I only have any respect left for two South African players- AB de Villiers for his 91, and Dale Steyn, for being a good bowler.    I gained a lot of respect for Mitchell Johnson, who took 7 wickets in Australia’s first attack.  And the Australian batsmen have made more runs in one session now that we took a day to gather yesterday.   I am deeply saddened by my team! Nearly ashamed…

AB de Villiers keeping the wicket, who is the batsman?

But it was good to see this real life on Wednesday… They ask us politely not to call our team Chokers. Well, except for AB and Dale… you C…

Wednesday evening I slept over at my mother’s house. My wife came through to take me to the doctor yesterday. And Wednesday I had one of the worst spasm attacks yet. It really hurts a lot. Yesterday the specialist put me to sleep to do a gastroscopy. I was really out of it when I finally woke up- my wife jokes with me for all the questions I have repeatedly asked her. Including Austin Powers’ famous question, Shall we… now or later…

The report will be sent to my GP. It might be gall dust attacking me. There is a kind of infection in some parts of my stomach- I am now really too scared to eat almost anything at all…  Soon- skinny me…

I tried to go cycling this morning, turned around within 500 meters, I really do not feel that great at the moment. I must also go to my GP for 4 hours on Monday to get a Kalium drip, my k levels are nearly gone, and I feel extremely tired all the time.  I only have 2 weeks left to train for the Argus Cycle race, and am seriously starting to doubt if I will make it this year…

So  it goes with me like the Protea Cricket team at the moment- lots of things going on, no performance…

But I want to publish something uplifting: a photo from our district this month:  Sunflowers in the sun…

David Warner was dropped at 26, 27 and 51- now he has reached his 100. Well done! Graeme Smith- your team are chokers!!! Except AB…
