My 'Three Strike" Superstition 

Superstition. Signs. Warning. God. The Universe. A mother’s intuition.

Whatever you want to call it or whoever you want to credit it with, I have a ‘3 Strikes & Stop’ rule that I listen to.

What do I mean you ask? Continue reading “My 'Three Strike" Superstition “

3 Countries In 3 Days: Day 3

Day 3 dawned at Afriski Mountain Resort. We were all tired, but eager to get up and actually see the resort since we’d arrived at night and couldn’t make out much.

To say that it was cold is an understatement!

Temperature = -1.5°C (That’s MINUS 1.5 degrees celcius!)

Elevation = 3054m above sea level.

Location = Afrisk Mountain Resort, Lesotho.

3 Countries In 3 Days: Day 2

After our exhilarating first day on the bikes, day two dawned bright and early. We knew we had a long way to go and so decided to forgo breakfast at Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary and rather break for breakfast later on in the day.

On my way to check out, I caught site of the resident family of warthogs warming themselves by the fire, as well as the Nyala who were completely unfazed by us clumping around them in our biker gear.  Continue reading “3 Countries In 3 Days: Day 2”

3 Countries in 3 Days: Day 1

My husband and I went away last week with our friends, on what can only be described as a fast paced epic adventure.

My husband and his friend are avid ‘bikers’. Think more ‘respectful adventurers’ rather than ‘leathers and goatees’! Continue reading “3 Countries in 3 Days: Day 1”

My Wanderlust

I am so excited I could almost burst.

If you read my post from a few weeks ago you will know my husband and I are getting 3 days away to ourselves while my mom and step-dad come visit to look after the girls.

Technically they are looking after the girls but I think we all know that the girls will breathe fresh life into them and recharge their batteries, whilst spoiling the girls with love and attention, as all grandchildren do and deserve.

But nonetheless our trip is booked, our route is planned, our accommodation reserved. Continue reading “My Wanderlust”

Are these the last days of summer? 

It certainly feels like it in South Africa anyway.

The days are getting shorter.

The nights are getting cooler.

I feel like I’m running out of time, time for what I don’t know but I am not a fan of winter, maybe that’s what is making me feel a little anxious.  Continue reading “Are these the last days of summer? ”

How Prepared Are You? Just In Case …

My husband and I love life. We like to be adventurous, have fun, really live our lives. We only get one go at it, so why not.

My husband loves flying (small planes), riding his (very fast) motorbike, we go Zip-lining, and white-water rafting. We also simply drive on the road, and walk down the street. If the terrorist attack in London this week has shown us anything, it is that your life is never at your own mercy, but at the hands of a higher power – whoever you believe that to be. You never know when something might happen to bring your life to an end.  Continue reading “How Prepared Are You? Just In Case …”

Sulking wife! 

Picture shows the photo of my husband’s coffee this morning. And mine. 

He is on the side of the road somewhere in the Northern Cape. 

I am sitting in a coffee shop waiting for my car to be washed. 

I’m sulking with jealousy because I would much rather be roughing it on a motorbike tour of this beautiful country than watching people pack a 6 pack of 2l cokes into their cars after bracing the wild crowds of Checkers on Black Friday. (Crazy people!) 

Once again, no one to help with the kids means I miss out on a fun adventure.

I’m sure my time will come. Or maybe I had it in my early 20s living it up in London. 

Despite being jealous I’m glad he’s having a good time. I pray he is safe on the roads (motorbikes still scare me!) and I at least get to see the pics he sends me. 

I do hope he feels a little bit guilty though.
