Whilst most kids went back to school yesterday, we are still 'on holiday'. 'Holiday' is a loose term. We're actually still checking out some stuff here in East London such as schools, houses, etc. whilst planning our move. To say that it's getting us all a bit down is an understatement. It's quite literally exhausting,… Continue reading Beach Bums
We are halfway through week one of the three week school holidays here in South Africa. The fact that we're that far in and I'm only getting around to publishing this post now is the exact point of this post. Let's be honest here, those of us who are Stay-At-Home-Moms, love the school term. As… Continue reading How To Embrace The School Holidays
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.

Fortunately this holiday is only two and a half weeks long so we should just about get through it with my sanity still intact. School holidays are great,… Continue reading School Holiday Plans
Most kids have gone back to school, except for mine! I know that's not exactly true, but that's how it feels. Their school only opens on the 18th! It closed on the 30th of November, that means that by the time they go back, they will have been on holiday for seven weeks! SEVEN! I'm bored,… Continue reading They are Still On Holiday

It's not like they couldn't hear my speaking to them in a normal, calm,… Continue reading Today’s confession … I yell … A Lot!
