Just like Oprah, here’s what I know for sure

Dear Max

So after a little trip to Cape Town, here’s what I really really know for sure, though I really really did know this things before:

– I miss you when I’m not with you
– Sometimes there’s no guessing from whence a toddler tantrum sprouts, nor how to treat it
– Newport Deli is my best
– You love cars
– You can say the word “car” 21 times in two minutes (we counted last night while driving)
– Cape Town has the best Instagram opportunities
– There is such a thing as a well-brought up, mature and non-spoilt teenager with his head screwed on the right way. In fact, I know two – your uncle Josh (now 15) and his friend Nhlanhla (16). This gives me much hope
– Whales are spectacular
– I love running
– It’s futile looking back
– For every awesome person, there are about five bitter and jealous and scared people
– Capetonians look like they’re on holiday ALL the time
– My friends IRL and on Twitter have big hearts – thanks to all those who have bought bears for Reach for a Dream. See http://www.reachforadream.org.za for details
– The Slow Lounge rocks
– There is no fricking place like home
– I want a dog, preferably a standard poodle. Despite the fact that they look like toy dogs, they’re in fact the second most intelligent pooch out there. I had two growing up – best. dogs. ever
– That I love you more than my heart has place for

    Oh sweet! And they are great dogs, but I’ll stick to the most intelligent ones – which I am 100% sure are Labradors.
