Love Bug & The Week From Hell

As luck would have it, my body decided to treat me to a case of love sickness on Valentine’s Day. Yup. I woke up with an horrible migraine in my right eye, which is unusual for me at this time of the year. I usually get early summer migraines, which happen when the temperatures spike in October, and my body isn’t used to the heat, resulting in a migraine or two. But this was hell. So I decided to have an anti-inflammatory – on an empty stomach. Stupid idea! Not 30 minutes later, that anti-inflammatory and the single cracker I’d eaten came right back up. Nice eh? I was in seven shades of hell, but at least my body temperature sorted itself out, and I got to sleep some of it off.

Thankfully it was all mostly gone so we could enjoy our evening out at the Lipizzaners in Kyalami – the only performing school of Lipizzaners out of Austria. Needless to say, I wanted to take them all home! β™₯ Can’t wait to go to a Sunday morning performance and take my camera, get some proper shots of them. Last night my cellphone had to suffice!

I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day, and if you didn’t do anything romantic, I hope you had an awesome Friday nonetheless! I know I used to hate VDay during school, purely because of the raging teenage hormones that made one feel pathetic if you didn’t get anything from someone. It’s overrated from a commercial aspect, so I just take it as an opportunity to do something different or just hang out with my boyfriend. We don’t do it often, so it’s nice to get out every now and then. πŸ™‚

So, this week was hectic from start to finish, including my website crashing. Yup. My hosting guys were having maintenance done on their server, and both drives decided to fail. They managed to get a new server sorted quickly, but unfortunately I lost my data, including my client’s emails. Thankfully I got all my client’s sites up and running easily (Old school HTML sites ftw!) but my WordPress site took a lot longer to get up and running again. I thought I’d lost weeks of work on my site, but it turns out that WordPress was epic and somehow backed up a lot of the work I thought I’d lost. Score! Since then, I have backed everything up, and am buying a lovely 3TB external drive to store it all in, as well as investigating in some Cloud storage and automatic backup software. I’m more worried about my clients’ stuff getting messed up than my own, so I want to make sure that’ll never happen again!

Thanks to all that madness, I didn’t have much of a chance to upload any of my daily shots since the start of Feb, but here they are! Have a lovely weekend folks!

  1. Gorgeous pictures – and I can’t wait to see more of those Lipizzaners.

    I get the occasional migraine too, so I know how bad it can get; hope it won’t bother you again anytime soon. Feel better!

    • Thanks Pille! I’m super excited to go do more photos of the Lipizzaners, they have performances every Sunday morning, so I’m already making plans to go to one soon. Migraines are awful things, but I’m glad I don’t get them often. I’ve heard some people get them almost every month? That must be terrible! 😦 Feeling much better thanks, had a busy weekend to take my mind off the aches and pains of getting better. πŸ™‚
