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...

As you know I've always been on the fence about the whole Santa and Tooth Faerie thing because my parents went all out when we were kids but we just haven't been in the sort of environment where I can really do that for Fysh. I wasn't going to do it at all and but then of course granny brought these things up and he sees it all over the shops etc but the questions of why don't the grownups...

I love ground black pepper, I even love it on popcorn. Ever notice though that pepper is rather expensive? I never really thought about it cause you know, my mom would buy those things and she buys in bulk so I usually just get refills from her. She's away and I need my pepper so I went to replenish my supply. Almost R100 later. The Person and I got chatting about pepper and he was telling me how he had watched a documentary thing on the whole spice trade...

So in February for Valentine's Day we decided we aren't going to go all big or whatever seeing as our anniversary is so close to it anyway so instead all three of us stayed in and I ordered a games box from Don't Disturb. Instead of going out and paying for overpriced prices if you're lucky enough to get a seat cause you didn't book ahead we had fun playing games, munching on the chocolates and sipping our coffees :) I've been a little miff and down in the...

Oh fuck I have heard this said to me so often that if I had a R10 note for every time I heard it I'd own that farm in a small forest town already. But hey, they are sort of right. IT IS IN MY HEAD, THAT'S THE PROBLEM! My brain, it has issues. I've heard how finding Jesus will cure me. How just changing my diet will fix everything. How I need to be more positive because that will fix it all and man I've heard too often...
