I wanted to do this on the 13th cause I know that for some of you Friday the 13th is "unlucky" which I find a little dumb and society driven but anyway, as things would have it I had a pretty decent day and good things happened but I wasn't able to get to wifi to go through all the entries and pull the random winners (all winners are random, I only do a re-draw if they've already won one of the 28 days and are drawn again...

So as a local earning local monies we don't go up the mountain really often because let's face it, most of the fun things like that are aimed at the tourists and the dollars and euros that they bring with them and hiking up there in my severely unfit state would probably require me being airlifted out of the gorge. BUT! The great thing is that Table Mountain has brought back #KidzSeason! Which means that until 30 September when one adult buys a ticket two kids get to ride...

I'm going to condense the last 5/6 days for you mainly cause I still don't have wifi at home and am blogging from my temperamental phone. I'll highlight the fun bits in separate posts. Sunday we left Southern Comfort with the intentions of heading back to warmwaterberg spa as a lay over so we could be home early Monday. Well it turns out our car had other plans and was done with the roadtrip so when we stopped in Sedgefield for some mothersday cake, snacks and cool drink it...

Southern Comfort Horse Ranch is in the middle of the forest in Haakenberg (just outside Knysna) and it’s as horsey as you’re going to get. A family run and maintained farm with the chattiest tannie and her daughter taking bookings. If you don’t like flies or the smell of farm or a communal kitchen with gas stoves then this isn’t the place for you, BUT if you don’t mind handmade bedspreads, old fashioned pots and pans and you’re keen on bottle feeding baby lambs, meeting some seriously friendly...

We packed up our goods and headed out at check out instead of staying an extra day like we’d originally had planned because of course the forest was calling. Being on route 62 we decided we HAD to go to Ronnies Sex Shop seeing as it was only 2km away. Ronnies is one of those places that has been glamourised and made a necessity on a route 62 stop. HOWEVER… the great place people talk about isn’t what we found there. Instead we were greeted with 5 or 6...

It was dark when we arrived so I didn’t get to see too much but we checked into a wooden cabin with a bed that sounded like it had seen better days and needed a can of oil, had a proper Karoo dinner and a southern comfort and lime (apparently another clue) before the restaurant closed then headed to spend time in the warm pool which was absolute bliss after being on my butt for 4 hours (remind me how I survived working in an office again?!) The following...

A while back The Person decided that we need a holiday and that my birthday would be a great excuse to have one so he planned out a road trip with secret destinations while I arranged for mama to babysit the Fysh as my birthday gift. I hate driving, maybe it’s a roll over from when we used to have to drive from Lüderitz to Paternoster every holiday or something but I can’t say I’m a huge fan, though I do love road trips. So long as they’re the...

We missioned through to Rosebank which was a good 40 minute drive (and that for capetonions requires padkos hahaha) for a birthday party and The Person headed there from Stellenbosch. For a party that was an hour and a half long.  So here we are, in Rosebank, in 2 cars. May as well do something this side to make the trip out worth the while yeah? Well we were walking distance from the train station so decided to park the cars and go on an adventure.  Fysh adores the train,...

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! And to celebrate my birthday and my obsession with Harry Potter my equally obsessed friend Padfoot from Mischief Managed is gifting one of you some HP love :) Padfoot and I met on SM and immediately bonded over Potter, we've had many days since she moved to Cape Town where we just sit and watch Potter and talk kak, for her birthday I took us to watch Philosophers Stone at the Galileo :D it was the bomb! Now if you're a Potter fan you'll know that The Cursed Child is...

I LOVE my monthly book delivery I get to review and I jump with joy when authors send me their books because yeah I may be a little book obsessed haha. So to spread the love of books I'm putting together a box full o fbook love for one of you. It'll have a little lap blanket because the cold is nearly upon us and we can all do with a little warmth, some hotchocolate, a mug, a bookmark and 3 books from authors I adore. Genre's vary so...
