Essential Personal Documentation

Living in South Africa, or anywhere really, having your family’s paperwork in order at all times, is essential! There are some essential personal documentation that you want to ensure are always in your possession and current!

Why?

Well, simply, you never know what you will need until you need it. You don’t want to be caught out in the situation where you need something urgently and then it takes Home Affairs MONTHS (or years) to get you the one piece of paper you require? Holidays have been ruined and cancelled, huge amounts of money have been forfeited, and family functions devastated because people book their holidays in advance without checking to make sure they have all the required paperwork. It’s not just people living in SA trying to get out, but holiday makers trying to get in as well! Continue reading “Essential Personal Documentation”

My February Instagram Round Up

Can you believe February is over already? How can it nearly be March already? We’ve had a hectic month with school and all the afternoon activities. I love doing these Instagram Round Up posts because it also gives me a chance to reflect on what’s been going on in our lives this past month.

Adjusting to Grade One has been a bit tough, but I’m super proud of my little girl. She’s doing so well. Me, on the other hand – maybe not so well. You can read about it in my post from yesterday about How To Tell If You Are A Grade One Mom

On with the round-up of the most liked and engaged posts from my Instagram over the last month.

No. 5: Throwback Thursday – Elephant Interaction

How To Tell If You Are A Grade One Mom

I don’t know about you, but we have had to go through a huge adjustment this year. My eldest started Grade One in January and it’s been one helluva rollercoaster ride! Being a Grade One mom is definitely not all it’s cracked up to be and I have dropped the ball on a few occasions now already. It’s only February! #badmom

So, in an effort to cheer myself up I did what every self-respecting women would do, I confided in my friends. I realised that it wasn’t just me, we’re all struggling to adjust. I’m not talking about the kids, I’m talking about the moms! You know what they say, “Misery loves company.” That’s me!

I put out an appeal last week on my InstaStories and on my Facebook page asking you to share your stories with me. There was a good response to my appeal so I have pulled them together and am sharing them on here so that we can all have a laugh at each other’s expense. I always like to take a ‘bad situation’ and make it funny. Failing that I just use sarcasm. I’m cool like that!  Continue reading “How To Tell If You Are A Grade One Mom”
