Open Letter To My Husband About Mother’s Day

To my darling husband, As you know I am not a materialistic person. Yes, I like nice things but in the grand scheme of things I would rather live in a nice house than have a Louis Vuitton handbag. I would rather go out and have a nice family lunch than buy expensive make-up. I… Continue reading Open Letter To My Husband About Mother’s Day

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… Continue reading 3 Countries In 3 Days: Day 3

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'! They both ride BMW GS1200 Adventure bikes. They have all the safety kit and have… Continue reading 3 Countries in 3 Days: Day 1

Bounce Trampoline Park

Last Sunday we took the kids to Bounce at Menlyn Main Central Square in Pretoria. It is a trampoline park, and to say the girls had a ball is an understatement. 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

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.  The girls have one… 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… 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… Continue reading Sulking wife!
