Fysh read me the cutest book that we got sent - Ella and Owen and the evil pumpkin pie fight - about two little dragon twins who are constantly getting into trouble, this time they stumbled upon a pumpkin king who's body was stolen and they had to help him...

I am seriously late to this whole Wish bandwagon thing but mostly because I really hate waiting - I want next day delivery - and also because my card has issues with online purchases. But I had cash in a PayPal account I couldn't get the money out of so I thought eh, I'll give it a go and sat browsing late one evening because insomnia. A few bloggers have posted and I've seen some rather hilarious Facebook posts from people I know who ordered clothing or cushions etc and...

Last week Hasbro sent us the Nerf Blaster Falconfire from the Nerf N-Strike Elite Accustrike Series. It's actually pretty cool compared to the others (well compared to our other one) as the new range has redesigned bullets that make them shoot further and more accurately which does make shooting down plastic bottles easier, although this means that mom isn't scoring all the points anymore haha. Now, I am not an advocate for guns but I grew up as a kid in the Namibian desert which means I could shoot from...

There's a saying how life is so short and I remember hearing it so often when I was younger. "Enjoy your youth, it goes by so fast" but I always thought that it was such a load of crock because life is the longest damn experience you'll ever have. Now though,  it seems that the closer I get to 30 the quicker time passes by, or maybe it's just that I'm noticing it now. Blink and it's gone. You've missed the moment.  They're walking and talking and that little boy...

Remember when I won a spot to join one of Janine Binneman's jewelry workshops? We had such a fantastic time and even Fysh loved it, mainly because Janine gave him a piece of wax to faff with and keep busy while I was learning all the things (or trying to anyway). Well I got a message saying "your rings are ready" and I was a little confused because I was only getting one, Janine being the magical mermaid she is went over and above and she had turned the...

When the Goodness Gang came out I told y'all how much we loved them and that hasn't changed. Fysh has collected almost each of the gang, just not the carrot - said he looked angry haha. I still love how they promote healthy eating and make it more fun because let's face it, not all kids think broccoli and sweet potato make good movie time snack like mine does. Tomorrow is the last day to collect stickers so we did groceries yesterday to fetch Adam Apple and Bongi Blueberry...

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...
