On Monday when I got home from the Dr's Fysh's friends showed up and honestly I just didn't have the energy for everyone so I set up the ice cream maker, lobbed in a can of coconut cream and a can of coconut cream then dug out the awesome Sundae Box from Don't Disturb for them to decorate and keep themselves entertained. It was a winning idea, even though I was stuck with the clean up as usual. Ironically, the episode of Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego we...

There is no doubting the fact that I love reading. It's always been my way to escape to somewhere that is just better than whatever is here. And it's a comfort. An adventure. A way to make new friends and see new worlds without even having to leave the sofa. Lately I've found Fysh reading to himself on occasion without prompting him to! The thing is that if you don't find your love for reading at a young age you're more likely to struggle as an adult which is why...

* winners from last week's FF will be announced on our Facebook page tomorrow so remember to go have a look around lunch-is *  Fysh and I were watching an episode of Where on earth is Carmen Sandiego and one of the facts that popped up during the show was that the Teddy Bear is named  after U.S. President Theodore Rosevelt. Of course we decided to google this to make sure it was actually true cause it's a pretty interesting fact and low and behold it is! In 1902, President Roosevelt...

It's a late night post, or early morning depending on how you want to look at it but my old friend insomnia seems to have returned. You don't have to read this one. If you give it a skip I won't judge you as it's just a random ramble and I'm sort of hoping that if I get a few words out of my head it will help ease the worry a bit and make space for more creativity and oomph. On Wednesday I finally sucked up my pride...

When he was about 2 Fysh tried to climb into my then golf and slipped as it was wet which resulted in a massive bump on his forehead. Today still if you look in the light you'll see there's an actual dent in his forehead. We always laugh at it and say he just wanted to look like Harry Potter ;) Other than that, and a few scraped knees here and there, he hasn't really been one of those kids who need rushing to the hospital like my brother....

Last week Fysh and I packed up our little car and headed off towards Citrusdal for a week of relaxation, hot pools, waterfalls and big green trees at The Baths. Despite it being cut a day short due to the tent we borrowed not being 100% rain proof we had such an absolutely amazing time. I need a better work than amazing because it just isn't enough. We arrived the Sunday and I somehow managed to set up the giant 5 man tent and stoep thing all on my...

Last night the unicorn was invited to go trick or treating at a friends complex, they do it annually and it's so awesome! Our road is too damn religious and racist to even consider letting the kids dress up and ask for candy - it's satan's work you know :/ We were invited on Friday and of course he was at granny (mom says he couldn't stop talking about it) so we didn't really have time to prep an outfit, also I am clearly not that Pinterest mom when...

In celebration of Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok releasing today we've teamed up with Disney Africa to make this week's Fact Friday a little more  exciting ;) I have two hampers worth R400 a hamper containing some awesome Thor : Ragnarok related merchandise including a backpack and card wallet (do you think I could keep one?) I'll admit that I am that person who always mixes up DC and Marvel. Yes I know, I'm a horrible person that should be flogged (and I often get a good talking to from friends), but...

You know what? Friday the 13th can take a back seat, Friday the 13th was FANTASTIC. But today? Friday the 20th? Well from now on I will stay home and switch off all appliances etc and hide from the world on any Friday the 20th. WHAT A DAY. And a really long story that involves having to sort out a warrant for a fine I didn't know about before I could replace my license so that we're good to go for camping on Sunday. Balls. Of course the first thing I...
