Tuesday tune: UP

Up
Olly Murs feat. Demi Lovato

I drew a broken heart
Right on your window pane
Waited for your reply
Here in the pouring rain
Just breathe against the glass

Leave me some kind of sign
I know the hurt won’t pass, yeah
Just tell me it’s not the end of the line
Just tell me it’s not the end of the line

I never meant to break your heart
I won’t let this plane go down
I never meant to make you cry
I’ll do what it takes to make this fly, oh
You gotta hold on
Hold on to what you’re feeling
That feeling is the best thing
The best thing, alright
I’m gonna place my bet on us
I know this love is heading in the same direction
That’s up

You drew a question mark
But you know what I want
I wanna turn the clock, yeah
Right back to where it was
So let’s build a bridge, yeah
From your side to mine
I’ll be the one to cross over
Just tell me it’s not the end of the line
Just tell me it’s not the end of the line

I never meant to break your heart
I won’t let this plane go down
I never meant to make you cry
I’ll do what it takes to make this fly, oh
You gotta hold on
Hold on to what you’re feeling
That feeling is the best thing
The best thing, alright
I’m gonna place my bet on us
I know this love is heading in the same direction
That’s up

Girl, I know we could climb back to where we were then
Feel it here in my heart
Put my heart in your hand
Well, I hope and I pray that you do understand
If you did, all you have to say is
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m waiting for you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I never meant to break your heart
I won’t let this plane go down (let this plane go down)
I never meant to make you cry
I’ll do what it takes to make this fly, oh
You gotta hold on
Hold on to what you’re feeling
That feeling is the best thing
The best thing, alright
I’m gonna place my bet on us
I know this love is heading in the same direction
That’s up

 

 

What a nice Friday

Normally, I don’t really touch much on work topics on my blog, but I just have to share yesterdays happenings with you.

We were sent an e-mail about two weeks ago about a wellness day that would be happening at the office. I was scheduled to go for training, so I wouldn’t have been able to attend, however, my training was cancelled. So, I could partake of the happenings.

On Thursday we received bright green t-shirts with a heart on. On the back it said “The greatest wealth is health”. I don’t think anyone was sure what to expect.

The production team. I am all the way on the right. 🙂

 

When we arrived at our offices in Sunnyside, we all received goodie bags with an little packet of nuts, an apple, an orange and a water bottle, oh and our meal tickets. We went into the lecture hall and were introduced to all the people who were part of the exhibit for the day. After the formalities, we could walk around and see what each stall had on offer.

My two colleagues and I, started off by getting flu packs. It was that or the flu injection. The flu pack consisted of Sinucon, Vitamin C tablets and two other products, all donated by PharmaValue. The pharmacy was also on hand to test glucose and bloood pressure.

After that it was off to the dietician, who gave me very bad news about my weight (as if I don’t know it already!). Let’s face it, it took more than a day to put the weight on, so it ail take more than a day to get it off. You cannot lose it all in one month and I know this. Btw, I am still on my diet and trying to lose the last 15 kilograms. It will take time with high and low days, but at least I am doing something about myself and I am happy.

Anyways, from there it was off to the optometrist, however, I recently (in the last week) had my eyes tested and received new glasses. We got a toothbrush and toothpaste from OralB.

We received red ribbons for HIV/Aids awareness and purple ones to stop gender violence. We received pens and water bottles from LifeLine, who do a wonderful job I might add. Nedbank and Old Mutual were there too as well as Virgin Active and awesome ladies who gave neck and hand massages. We all got lunch and fruit juice from Juicy Lucy. All in all we were really spoilt and all the credit to the team who arranged it all! (I am sorry if I left anyone out of this list.)

Something interesting from the day was that I was one of two people at my company who had normal blood pressure. My one colleague had high and the other low. Oh and the funniest part of the day was the free packets of condoms. They were this government ones and they were ten in a pack. I walked off with three packets and my colleagues with four… it seemed like we were going to have a really busy weekend *wink wink*

Anyways, I just want to share the happenings with you. It was an awesome day and well, it was a nice way to mix with colleagues in a relaxed environment.

Have a happy weekend.

Some thoughts in my head

So a few weeks ago, I was watching HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER. Season 6 was showing on Comedy Central, channel 122. It is a show I always enjoyed and I admit that watching it is like hanging out with old friends.

In the episode, Ted explains to Robin that dating her co-anchor is nice because she makes him feel needed, something Robin didn’t do when he dated her.

Oh dear… this seemed to catch my attention, because if we have a look at my life, I am not good when it comes to “needing” people.

Startled by this revelation, Robin shows up at Barney’s and asks him to weigh in on what was said. Barney assures Robin that her independence and lack of neediness is one of the things he liked most about her.

Which in my view was a really nice thing of Barney to say.

But, my question is… Are there guys out there that truly can appreciate an independent woman? A woman who is not a “damsel in distress”? I was going to write an in-depth post (read rant) about my thoughts, but then I got an WhatsApp from my brother and I thought it summed it up perfectly…

So there you have it… An image that says it all.
Have a good Wednesday further.

Airshow photos (#4)

The final post…

SNAPS and SHOOTS PHOTOGRAPHY

Now, I think the highlight of any airshow is the mock mini-war attacks, however, we were told that that would not happen at this show, due to windows being broken at the AAD in 2014.

Instead, the crowds were treated with a display from the Paramount Group and how they are putting their skills and technology to good use to stop rhino poaching, which is very serious in South Africa. Below are a few photos taken from the day. And yes, before you ask that is a dog on the side of the helicopter, they use the dogs to catch the poachers and it takes the dog an approximate two years to train for this.

Another treat at the airshow is when the Boeing makes a turn and does a display with the Silver Falcons. This year, as per the last, the Mango plane was called in.

So there you…

Airshow photos (#3)

Here are some of my favourite photos from the airshow… I wonder what makes you think that I like fire? 😉

At the airshow (held at Zwartkops Airforce base on 9 May) they had the Harvards flying. These aircrafts are retired, but boy do they have a lot of bang.

I updated Snaps and Shoots and thought I had to share with all my friends here. 🙂

SNAPS and SHOOTS PHOTOGRAPHY

As I mentioned in a previous post, we had an airshow on 9 May 2015 at Zwartkops Air Force Base (now you know which event I chose 😉 ). Anyways, it really was an awesome day and just to prove how awesome, I have decided to post some photos.

I’ll be posting the Gripen and Boeing images soon.
