An extract from their website describes it as follows: BOUNCE Menlyn Maine is a massive indoor trampoline park in Pretoria that provides an adrenaline rush for… Continue reading Bounce Trampoline Park
This morning I took the girls to our local cinema to watch the latest Smurf movie. The latest offering by Sony Pictures. The story is about how Smurfette (voiced by Demi Lovato) isn't a real smurf.

It is week two of the Easter School Holidays. We are starting to get a bit bored, and my purse is a bit empty so I've pulled together a few links to activities to do with the kids to keep them busy which won't cost too much either.

Most afternoons are spent running around with… Continue reading #WhereDoYouBlog?
As soon as the Trolls movie came out, we went to watch it at the movies. You can read my review of that here.

At… Continue reading Trolls – The Soundtrack Of My Weekend!

On Saturday afternoon we were called up to Jo'burg at short notice and while my husband was busy I had a few hours to kill. We decided to settle in at one of our favorite family restaurant chains. My husband could leave us there with peace of mind, the girls get to play in a huge… Continue reading To All The Queens
At a follow up appointment at the Dentist this morning the receptionist came to ask me if they were both mine. I asked why, and she said that they were getting along so well and playing so nicely she thought maybe they were friends. (Clearly a fellow mom). At that point I actually considered the… Continue reading The Fighting 🙈
