My Instaweek RoundUp – Aug week 1

This has been a busy week, but a good week for me. We had an extra week of holidays so it was really good to be back home and in a routine. Some people hate it, but my girls and I need routine, order and a bit of predictability.  Continue reading “My Instaweek RoundUp – Aug week 1”

**Glimmies Giveaway**

My girls are obsessed with the various collectibles that seem to be all the rage right now, and it seems that no matter how many you buy they always want the ones they don’t have.

When the parcel from the lovely people at Prima Toys arrived, it was excitedly ripped open to reveal a Glimtern Glimmie. To say that the girls were over the moon excited is an understatement of epic proportions. Continue reading “**Glimmies Giveaway**”

How to Repair Doll's Hair

My girls can be quite rough with their toys. Majority of their dolls are stripped naked within hours of them being purchased and they then proceed to brush the doll’s hair until it fluffs out and knots.

I decided to try to ‘help’ restore these previous fashionistas to their former glory by attempting to repair their hair … think salon experience, but for dolls.  Continue reading “How to Repair Doll's Hair”

Gift Guide for my Kids

Warning: post contains swearing, sarcasm and real threats! 

As we approach the festive season I have a few conditions for Christmas gifts for the children to all my friends and family:

For the love of all that is sacred and holy in this world, please do not buy my girls another f*cking puzzle! They are incapable of tidying them up and I am quite frankly sick to death of doing it! 

I don’t care if it’s a Trolls puzzle signed in glitter by Poppy or by  “Justin Timberleg” himself – that’s what they call him! 

I don’t care if that puzzle has the power to turn my child into a genius overnight! 

Unless it has the power to turn them into an OCD cleaner, I don’t want you to give it to them! 

If you go against my wishes, rest assured that we will be having the mother of all braai’s (African barbecue) on Boxing Day, where the fire will be fed with the puzzles you bought them! 

Whilst I’m on the subject, also to go on the fire will be any gifts containing glitter, ones that make a noise, require intensive supervision by me or potentially discolour my furniture or car interior (paint, markers, glue etc)! 

Acceptable gifts: google play vouchers, Trolls/Barbie/Frozen/Lion Guard toys (except if they also fall in the aforementioned categories), clothing, swimming toys, dvds, sweets etc, even bats and balls will be allowed, but for the love of God, no puzzles or glitter!!!! 

Consider this advance warning – Mother!!! 

If you think I’m the grinch, or just a bitch, I really don’t care. As the only provider of grandchildren and nieces I suggest you all obey or their attendance at the next holiday (Easter/birthdays etc) will be cancelled! 

Love you all. Tra-la-la-la-la 😘🎄❤️🍷
