I Am The Queen Of Procrastination

Actually, I'm 'The Queen' of a lot of things and have been labeled that many times in my life ... 'The Lazy Queen' (not so nice), the 'Wine Queen' (I'll take that one). One label I own in a self-resignation kind of way is 'The Queen of Procrastination'.  It's a quality I admit to, can't… Continue reading I Am The Queen Of Procrastination

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

My Daughters Are Sisters

I originally took the photo in my featured image because as I went to tidy up their shoes left exactly like that, it struck me how different they are.

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. As with most self catering style weekend breaks, it involves a fair amount of planning, preparation and packing. Before you… Continue reading Checklist For A Weekend Break

Valentine’s Day Fun

Over the Christmas holidays, we stayed with friends that we hadn't been on holiday with before. It's always a little stressful going away with people for the first time. It can either make or break a friendship. I was also worried about my husband getting bored. Yes, him. Not the kids! Him! During my Christmas… Continue reading Valentine’s Day Fun

How I Prepared To Go Out!

Yesterday my husband needed me by his side. He had to attend a work meeting, which was followed by a social where the wives were included. For us to attend a function where the girls can't come with takes HUGE planning and preparation. We decided that the only people we felt comfortable leaving the girls with… Continue reading How I Prepared To Go Out!
