And then some not so good things. And then we left. Before anyone… Continue reading Why I’m Glad We Left The UK

Checklist For A Weekend Break

We are heading to the Vaal River this weekend with some friends. Although I have crossed the river a few hundred times between the Free State and Gauteng, I've never actually been to the river.

Monday Motivation

I opened my diary this morning to find this amazing quote as the Daily Quote. It is particularly poignant when my To Do list is excessively long and overwhelming. As a teenager I used to suffer from not being able to sleep at night. I would have a million things going on, especially during my… Continue reading Monday Motivation

This past weekend we took the girls Zip-Lining in Parys.  In August last year we took them on a canopy zip-lining expedition in the Drakensburg. They had a specific 'run' for little kids and both my girls LOVED it! Dad and the girls all did it but I abstained to be chief photographer and bag… Continue reading We Took the Kids Zip Lining!

The fighting 🙈

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 fact… Continue reading The fighting 🙈
