This is a really tough one, I honestly don't know. I feel like I haven't done anything HUGE to make my mark yet and I'm nearing my thirties pretty quickly but I still have many many years (hopefully) to do things that matter. They'd know a lot by reading this blog, if blogs are still a thing by the time they're old enough to read and stuff. Like the fact that I am slightly cooked in the head, I'm a forest faery river mermaid with blue hair and a...

2015 was one hell of a year, am I glad it's over? Maybe, I'm not sure. It's brought me to where I am now so maybe not. But the one thing it taught me is that I can do anything I set my mind to, if I'm determined enough I can succeed and I am a survivor. So I am taking that with me into the new year, the knowledge that I am able to do anything. That I can be anything, accomplish just about every damn thing...

If like me you weren't aware - googol is an actual number (10 to the power of one hundred). Apparently it's how google got it's name but only the creators will actually know if that's true or not and I've never met them to ask so yeah, could just be internet make say.  I have no idea how or where Fysh found out it's a number but he must have heard it somewhere as he apparently knew this before me because a while back he started with "I love you...

So Mama Zombie posted this yesterday and I think it's so bloody brilliant I'm going to join her in it next year. I often struggle to actually sit down and post what's in my head and keep thinking "I'll do it later" then when I eventually sit down to write it it's too damn late already. I like this that at least once a week I don't have to think about a topic. Maybe it will help and get me back in the groove and habit of posting,...

So I have had so much work to do since the last post (yay) and then decided to take a bit of a break to just enjoy time with friends and family and boy did I people myself out for a change! From xmas eve eating and being merry with family while opening gifts to following up with a visit to the farm for a giant lunch and more merriment on the 25th and then a braai with a good friend the 26th. Yesterday I stayed in bed...

I love mermaids, always wanted to be one since I was a little girl. Never felt like I belonged anywhere but out at sea...

It's tradition for us to make biscuits for the holidays as a way to keep busy and out of trouble mostly I think, been doing it since I was a little kid so of course I keep up the tradition with Fysh as well cause it's a great one. And also it's a cheap teachers gift as well as family xmas gift if I let him decorate it ;) This year I thought I'd share the recipe we always use...

We went to a dragon hunting party on Saturday at Afrikara and ended up coming home with a kitten cause you know, that's just how we do things. I couldn't help it though, I've always wanted another ginger kitten since Mau was killed, he was the absolute best cat ever and I've had it in my head ever since that it's cause he was a ginger. That and I don't know, they're just so unloved that I feel like they need extra love. They're also a little more...

So Fysh has been a little grumpy and under the weather, definitely not himself and I thought maybe it was just because he's had a bit much sun (he's been in the pool from sunup to sundown everyday since summer reared her ugly head in the mother city.  Turns out he has chicken pox or "Chickenpops" as he calls it. Poor dude has little itchy blisters all over and they keep cropping up. Thankfully he has been very good in not scratching them and the only one that seems...

When your whole world shatters and time stands still, recovery is never easy. Plans and dreams, ripped apart now seem impossible and finding a steady rhythm for your beating heart seems unattainable. Cole Tierney and Grace Rivers had a bright, uncomplicated future ahead of them, but the accident changed that. In the aftermath, there are wide reaching consequences, not only for Cole and Grace, but their loved ones too. Only together can they battle to survive the impact. Is it enough for them to heal and fight for their future? With...
