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...

Well that's actually new boot. Singular. As in a moonboot.  Note to self > running in an empty damn with flip flops on is a shitty idea and also broken big toes don't heal properly or on their own if you don't slow the fuck down and let them.  No more running attempts or kicking my bag for a while. Got to cancel that hike as well. Le sigh.   At least my hands are fine so I can still crochet orders.  Been a quiet on here cause I haven't had much...

Thankfully Penguin Books tapped me on the shoulder and introduced us with an ARC of Fool Me Once! I love thrillers thrown into my usual mix and this piece of work by Coben is pure genius. Fool Me Once is a tale of a disgraced...

The Fysh is pretty creative in the kitchen an tonight I let him be in charge and so he presents to you "butternut pizza".  (His version isn't vegan and because this is his recipe I wasn't allowed to share mine but you can easily adjust it to be by swapping the mince out for cauliflower mash "meat balls" instead) First you cut a hole in the butternut patties. Save the insides because you're going to grate them and then add them to your meatballs (that was my sneaky / clever...

Wiggly teeth are becoming a thing in this house and while he was with granny this weekend the Fysh lost tooth number two! The tooth faerie didn't have time to prep and put together a little gift so she left him R10 which he added to some other monies and used it to buy a pack of bacon (definitely not raising a vegan hahaha).  You honestly don't realise how fast time actually goes buy until you have a kid. They're proof life might be the longest thing we do but...

But there is a station right across from Grand West Casino so on Friday we met him there and then stayed and frolicked around Snow World! Yup, SNOW WORLD! You read right. If you didn't know they're here don't fret cause I...
