This morning I finally got an email from a company I put an order in with days ago confirming that they would deliver "this morning". So instead of heading out like I'd planned to so that we can go and do some work at the beach and play at the park we stayed home. (Cabin fever is seriously getting me). At a quarter past two I sent them an email asking when exactly "this morning" they will be delivering as I am heading out to a meeting at five....

I've been extremely nostalgic lately so I thought I'd do a little throwback post of some of the series I remember watching growing up. They're the ones that still sit freshly in my mind. Growing up we didn't really have TV, well we had a TV but we grew up in a little town in Namibia so we didn't really have much access beyond what came on NBC (the national channel) and then later on someone at the mine would record KTV for all the kids and there...

Usually The Person and I alternate weekends between myself and him but the past 2/3 months he's been every weekend cause we have the pool and with it being so hot it needs work, also it's here to swim in and cool down where as at him we just melt haha. But with working at home, teaching at home and spending weekends at home I've developed a case of cabin fever and have even taken to moving everything into the lounge just so I have a "change of...

  I have so much going on in my head right now that I can't actually get it down. You really don't want to be around the crazy right now. So here's a pretty song instead. Doesn't it make you just want to go run through a forest, dip your feet in a babbling brook and lay in a big open meadow? I think I need me some nature this weekend. Maybe The Person and I can go hiking. [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHSGUAxx9MM&feature=youtu.be[/embed]...

We made chocolate chip cookies and turned it into a math lesson (I am LOVING how we can turn just about anything into a learning experience, I never really noticed that before we started home schooling) so we used that whole american thing of so many cups or quarter cups instead of the usual ml like we always do. They came out PERFECT and no there are none left hahaha. Here's the recipe we used. **preheat oven to 180 deg c 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar 1 1/2 cups softened...

Ever have that feeling like there's just too much stuff around you? And that it all needs to go right now? I've been having that feeling for a little while and today at 6am I decided fuck it all it's going. I started in the kitchen. Everything and anything that I haven't used in the past 6 months either got thrown in a black bag, put on freecycle or is on the pile that's going to Meg's junk swop on Sunday. I don't know where all this crap comes from?! Guess in...

Myself and Padfoot missioned through to The Hollow Tree in Bellville last night to join in on Paint Nite after she won last minute tickets. Mama doesn't like babysitting during the week cause of my brother needing to be at school the next morning and her 7am gym routine but she agreed with a bit of a huff and watched the mini so that we could have a bit of a ladies night. Not sure you could call one savannah and 2 hours out a ladies night be I...

I follow a lovely lady (who turns out to be a HS mom!) that sells pre-cut gingerbread houses in a kit. Mostly around xmas time obviously and when she offered to send us a fish tank for our butterfly caterpillars I cheekily asked if we could maybe buy a box if she still had a few. Turns out she does sell them all year round on order (woohoo) and she popped a kit in with the fish tank. It arrived late yesterday afternoon and it smelled SO good that Fysh...

We don't own a TV and even if we did I wouldn't get DSTV cause these days there's nothing but crap on there and the cartoons they show are more for adults with all the sexual innuendo (which is hilarious yes) than kids and they're also more adverts than actual film time. At least with my iMac and tablet I can kinda monitor what Fysh watches. I don't mind stampy and we love the "old school" cartoons from "back in my day" (aka the 90's) like tailspin, american...

I wrote a book! And had it edited! As in I seriously wrote one and finished it all by myself with a beginning a middle and and end and a pretty cute story line. I pantsed it like I usually do but this time I finished it. I've written adult books before and mostly with friends, I have one pending that needs to be finished but I've never finished one on my own and have never really been able to write for kids. I wrote one for kids! And apparently (according to...
