I love summer on the Gold Coast. It gets light at 4.30am and is only dark after 7pm. That means you can paddle a canoe on the river in the morning before work and go for a surf after work, or vice versa.

Migrating from one country to another is a big move, but the actual relocation of goods is made easier by the packing being done for you. Although most of us wish and hope that we'll never have to pack up and move again, there are often occasions when we need to: We buy a house, we need to move out of the rental that we're in, we relocate to another city or suburb, for example.

Meeting Steve and Tracy Marais one can't but be drawn into the enthusiasm that this dynamic duo impart to everything they take on. It is no surprise that after only eight years in Australia they have achieved so much success, both personally and in their business.

Steve and Tracy head the Queensland construction and development company Condev, which they started six years ago on the Gold Coast. The company specialises in commercial and industrial developments of up to $35 million as well as multi unit residential and high end residential developments.

Score the potatoes with a fork.

Add the finely chopped onion and all other ingredients, except oil, to the potatoes and mix well so that the potatoes get a thick coating of the yoghurt mixture all over.

Forget the Sydney Opera House, Bondi Beach and even the thrill of being in this stunning city during the famous New Year's Eve fireworks. It's a celebrity sighting that got my daughter's vote.

November

Bianca and I went out to dinner at Wellington Point's Legends Restaurant, which was having an African Feast evening where R200 gets you as much food as you want. The menu included oxtail, paella, chicken a la king, babotie, wors, pap and sous. Just when my belly button was about to pop off and my stomach burst open and scatter seven metres of intestines everywhere, they brought out the deserts, which included koeksusters, peppermint crisp pudding and melk tert. When we could take more we paid and rolled home.

Well, it's that time of the year again, which reminds us that we're a year older and we've been in Australia for a year longer. With each passing year we might reflect for a moment: Has it been a good year (financially, socially)? Did we do the right thing by leaving South Africa? Are our friends wishing they were here too, or are they glad they stayed? Each of us will, of course, have unique answers. Such is the nature of free moral choice, and we see the results of those choices in the diversity that exists all around us. Not surprisingly, human nature being as it is, ‘us and them' issues, even xenophobia, often ensue, whether by ignorance or intolerance, which might help explain why Saffas have been branded as arrogant.

September

We invited some friends around for a Thai curry dinner which Bianca catered for using the local restaurant menu. A great evening was had by all with the delicious food being flushed down with vats of wine.

July

Bianca and the boys picked me up early from work on Friday and we headed off to Prestbury Farm near Toowoomba for the weekend. The food box and esky held supplies for more than a week. We arrived to a warm welcome from the farmer's wife Sally and one of his three daughters who showed us our cottage which already had smoke billowing out of the chimney. Our friends, the Fields, arrived a short while later and it wasn't long before we had our feet up and were nursing some red wine in front of the fire.

I am on leave, at home with the kids. My wife has gone away for four days. For the short stabs of time where I sleep, I dream of tropical island hideaways and silence. And drugs. I made it through my first 30 years of life without resorting to hard drugs, but this is different. Ok, there were one or two incidents, but the charges never stuck. I just need something to calm my nerves. A shot of Pethidine through the eyeball into the brain would do. We get through the first day okay, so I let my guard down, and

they sense my weakness. The first night is a sleepless circus of bottle feeding and screaming, nappy changing and crying. I do most of the crying.
