The topic of 'Can Women Have It All' is a very contentious one. There are many educated arguments, ranting blog posts, memes and feminist movements surrounding this one topic. Why do 'we', and by 'we' I mean everyone but mostly women, feel like it's some sort of challenge to be equal to a man. Or… Continue reading Having It All
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an Open Letter To My Husband About Mother’s Day. I know he read it so in the run up, expectiations were high. However during the week in the run up to Mother's Day, we realised we would have to tweak my 'wish list' so that it was a… Continue reading My Mother’s Day Spoils
Today is May the 4th. When I was tagged in yet another May The Fourth picture, I started to realise that maybe I'm missing something here because all these lovely people who are tagging me can't possibly know that I have never watched Star Wars, and therefore won't get the joke they are all kindly trying… Continue reading Do You Have “Mom Brain”?
Today's image is my actual 'To Do' List, today. Fairy wings - to go with the Disney Fairy outfits I've made for them for the Shrove Tuesday dress up day at school tomorrow, because store bought costumes are too common they want to be different! 🤦🏼♀️ Motorbike Tyre - this involved following my husband in… Continue reading My Real Life To Do List for today!
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
I am not good at confrontation. In fact, my own mother calls me a doormat (with all the love in the world). I can't tell you how many times I can remember her saying to me, "God gave you a backbone, use it!" After 35 years of trying, I've got a bit better, but I… Continue reading I’m A Confrontation Avoider
This post is dedicated to my husband. I have never met anyone with the immense will power that he has. He decided in December that come the 1st of January he will be on a healthy eating plan, with the aim of losing around 20kgs. I was all for this and I am happy to support… Continue reading Healthy Lifestyle Update
When you are young and in love, and the relevant important body asks you how you want to be married, your answer is usually something stupid like "In Church" or "In a Garden" or "On the beach". What he is actually asking is "Do you want to be married IN Community of Property, or OUT of Community… Continue reading Married in COP – today’s rant!
I know I'm a bit late, but I've never been 'early' in my life! I hate the term 'New Years Resolution'. There is such a stigma attached to it and it becomes a chore to stick to rather than a desire. So instead of that, I have set myself goals for 2017 which are personal… Continue reading My goals for 2017
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!
