Talking A quick hi from South Africa

Hi everyone! I joined this forum today, but I'm still trying to find my way around! Looks interesting and friendly! I'm trying to establish a sort of food blog, don't really know what I'm doing, so won't even think of posting the URL! First, I'll just come here to relax ... we're in the middle of building renovations and it's AWFUL!

Hey, thanks everyone, for the welcome!

I am sorry I was in and out of here, and only reply to your kind welcome at this late stage! We -- or at least the architect-builder -- were renovating and adding to our house. It was all so chaotic and messy that I had very little time for the computer and the Internet! That's why I said: "Quick hi!"

It's getting together now, but I've been working my backside off, trying to clean and move back into our house! We're still in rented quarters, the couches, etc. which are being re-covered are not finished yet, and the new additions echo with emptiness!! Also need carpets!

Anyway, maybe in a week's time things will be back to almost normal ...
