As you know I've always been on the fence about the whole Santa and Tooth Faerie thing because my parents went all out when we were kids but we just haven't been in the sort of environment where I can really do that for Fysh. I wasn't going to do it at all and but then of course granny brought these things up and he sees it all over the shops etc but the questions of why don't the grownups...

I love ground black pepper, I even love it on popcorn. Ever notice though that pepper is rather expensive? I never really thought about it cause you know, my mom would buy those things and she buys in bulk so I usually just get refills from her. She's away and I need my pepper so I went to replenish my supply. Almost R100 later. The Person and I got chatting about pepper and he was telling me how he had watched a documentary thing on the whole spice trade...

So in February for Valentine's Day we decided we aren't going to go all big or whatever seeing as our anniversary is so close to it anyway so instead all three of us stayed in and I ordered a games box from Don't Disturb. Instead of going out and paying for overpriced prices if you're lucky enough to get a seat cause you didn't book ahead we had fun playing games, munching on the chocolates and sipping our coffees :) I've been a little miff and down in the...

Oh fuck I have heard this said to me so often that if I had a R10 note for every time I heard it I'd own that farm in a small forest town already. But hey, they are sort of right. IT IS IN MY HEAD, THAT'S THE PROBLEM! My brain, it has issues. I've heard how finding Jesus will cure me. How just changing my diet will fix everything. How I need to be more positive because that will fix it all and man I've heard too often...

Things are so fast paced lately, it's one of the reasons Fysh and I are going camping soon, get away and reconnect. Find our roots again, breathe in some fresh air and meditate for a bit on where we want to go from here and what we'd like to accomplish. Bodhi Box is a monthly subscription box that is filled with mindfulness activities, goodies and treats that are sourced locally and as earth friendly as possible. What a great idea right? So your child will get a box just for...

Today I let a friend choose what FF should be about because we're stumped this week. It's school holidays and even though Fysh doesn't technically get a holiday all the other kids do so he's been spending a lot of time with the neighbors etc which is great seeing as socializing and he's having fun etc. But it means the only "schooling" we've done is the oobleck and a fun little game my dad used to make us do - when you're out on the road you have...

Yesterday I got to add "carved my own ring" to the "something I've done list" and it was amazing, and frustrating and so much fun! It was something I never even thought of putting on my bucket list of things to do but now that I've done it I'm telling you that this is something you really do need to add to your own list! Janine Binneman Jewellery hosts ring making workshops where she shows you how to carve your own ring out of wax and explains the entire...

Thanks to YouTube the unicorn is always coming up with weird things he wants to try. Not that I'm complaining, it's how you learn but sometimes I just want to curse YouTube haha. This week it was Oobleck. Oobleck, named for a gooey substance that fell from the sky in a Dr. Seuss story is a thick solution of cornstarch in water. The first time I heard about it though was in a series I was watching where the professor did it outside in the university courtyard and they were...

Have you heard of Big Blue yet? Maybe popped into their store and lusted over all the pretties? I have. Actually The Person introduced me to them when we took that train trip up to Pretoria and he bought me the most gorgeous skirt, I just love it. It's a stunning green with a pattern and it's heavy so it sits lovely and doesn't blow all over in the Cape Town summer winds. Well, they have an online store! So you don't have to wander into a mall and...

A while back The Playstation Adventure Park started following me on Instagram and I've been thinking about taking Fysh ever since, the thing is though that they are in Tokai and any true Capetonian will tell you that us to Tokai counts as a road trip hahaha. September being our best month all year I thought I'd treat him a little and take him. And as the universe is they were having a special day where the kids get two hours of play and mom get's a cup...
