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,...

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...

I've known Von from for the love of nail art since grade school when she bullied me into being her friend, no lies hey, she walked up to me and said "YOU! We're going to be friends, come." and then walked off expecting me to follow her and obviously I did hahaha. Man I love Von, she's direct and down to earth and tells it like it is. She's also extremely talented in a lot of things. One of those things just so happens to be nail art! Now...

Mama started SA kids on the Go about 12 years ago when she moved to Cape Town and realised that she didn't know anyone here and that finding kids related things/services and just places to go with kids was really hard so SA Kids was born!
