All these fucking collectable shit things. I will give it to checkers though, of the "crazes" they definitely win at coolest because seriously, they make me feel like the BFG and a kid again and shop shop  is FUN. I was pretty stoked when I saw the little shop things thinking yay for a fun one. BUT a trip to the shops today changed my mind. 1) I went out of my way to go to checkers for a loaf of bread instead of popping into the spar 2 min away....

Or for the fun of it anyway ;)  I haven't been bowling since, shit I don't know. Maybe since I was about Fysh's age and running around Kolmanskop sneaking into the bowling alley. And then it was once or twice before we got caught (bowling alley echoes).  We were supposed to go to Ratanga Junction, The Person had never been and we always mean to but those prices put us off. They're having a "fees have fallen" special to celebrate 17 years of being open (fuck that makes me feel...

I don't know if you know this (I didn't but thanks to Padfoot I do now) but Numetro does this thing they call "girls night out" were tickets are R65 (snacks not included) and you get to see a fantastic chick flick (that is usually a pre-screaning) where no men are allowed! And they do a whole set up with free pizza, magazines, port, and stalls with things like a make up touch up stand, honey jewellery etc. then to make it better before the movie starts they do...

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]You know, it's really funny. During April when I couldn't post cause I was doing the giveaways I had SO much I wanted to say and blog but couldn't interrupt the flow. But since being on a hiatus for a week on our road trip I've sort of come back with fokkol to say. Shit has been so boring around here and yet I've busy all the time. But busy with shit that's not really interesting to write about. All I do at the moment is crochet, cook...

My mama turned the big FIVE OH on Saturday and we celebrated it with a surprise party at the pottery studio in Melkbosstrand that her friend owns :) It's really a gem of a spot. We used to drive all the way to houtbay to paint pottery which was great and all that but it meant that you had to drive all the way there again 2 weeks later to go and fetch your stuff. Not so fun. Melkbosstrand is 14km from me so it's a much better option. Mel...

We got an invite from Nickelodeon Africa to go and see the screening of the new Ninja Turtles movie and I know how much Fysh loves the turtles (we even have the lego) so I of course said yes - thanks guys! We almost forgot about it but thankfully something in my brain clicked into the right place and I had us hustling out the house and arriving literally as the movie had started so sadly I missed previews (I love previews!) We laughed, the entire cinema did so clearly...

I suck at fudge making, I just can't. I usually end up with some form of weird toffee concoction that tastes good but definitely can't class as fudge. And it's a mission and a mess and you may as well throw your good pan away cause you don't want to deal with that shit. Not sure what made me decide to try again, but I did. It's not the smooth texture I love (there's a guy at Route44 market that sells THE BEST fudge you'll ever have - spacing on...

Sometimes it feels like yesterday that I was pregnant and other times it feels like an entire lifetime ago. Looking at him now it's hard to believe that he weighed a mere 1.7kg and was escorted off to the NICU and was kept in a little box. I've read countless posts on mom's accounts of their little babes in the NICU but I have never written one because when he was in NICU I was in CICU (critical intensive care unit - one up from the ICU, it's where you're literally...

** Not a sponsored post. Just sharing a great find. I mentioned the other day that Fysh has wanted a monopoly set for quite a while and was pretty distraught after the little incident where he "won" a set and then it was realised they gave it to the wrong people and took it back. Today I finally found him a set! Went to Checkers for the basics and accidentally went in the wrong side (the damn toy side) which I tend to avoid completely (out of site out of mind) but...

Fysh made me buy a packet of bananas a week or two ago under the guise that he now actually likes them (hahahaha) well he ate maybe two and then I found a packet of over ripe nanas in the fridge so thought well I'm sure as hell not letting them go to waste. I have flour and eggs I may as well turn them into something he'll eat - BANANA BREAD! We had enough nanas to double the mix so I made one plain and then got...
