​When I moved into my place I decided we needed a dog. Not just because I'm used to always having one but because it was always just Fysh and I alone in a big house in a neighbourhood where we didn't know anyone. We looked around and asked about and I decided to adopt a border collie from the border collie rescue association out towards Malmesbury. We went through home inspection etc etc and ended up with Joonbug who turned out to be the furthest thing from a...

This morning we were at the waterfront for a networking breakfast and I decided to finally use the vouchers we got last year at an event for Art Jamming before they expire. Guys, it was SO much fun! I know I have canvas and paint at home but this is an entire studio just for painting and you can MESS!  Being a Thursday morning not in the holidays we had the whole place to ourselves and the guys working let us be so we got to dance and twirl...

1. Whatever is causing the anxiety might seem irrational to you, but it is very fucking real to us Very, Very real. 2. Anxiety can happen at any moment, and when it does, we only need one thing: support. Don't try and fix it it, just be there for us, or at least let us know you're there for us if we need it. 3. We’re not blowing you off. It’s hard to make plans, and talking on the phone is equally difficult at times, all the time for most of us. It doesn’t mean we don’t desperately...

A while back I grabbed a packet of those thin fries Fysh loves, you know the kind they serve at McDonald's?  Well we both adore those cheesy fries from steers and wanted some but I don't want to venture out and also cash, then I remembered the fries in the freezer and decided why not make our own!  I posted a shot on instagram and everyone keeps on asking for the recipe so thought I'd share my twist on them :)  The fries are easy, you pop them in a deep...

Today The Person got a bee in his bonnet and decided we should take a drive out to Darling to see the flowers. My mom and Fysh went last week and the photos were amazing so we thought why not. I really wanted to show him the weskus sneeu that blankets the fields up that side this time of year (it's a wild white flower that grows like a ground cover, usually it makes it look like it's snowed). Fysh didn't want to go again so dropped him...

When I was Pregnant with Fysh I attended all the Baby Sense seminars and I think when Fysh was born we owned pretty much everything they made all those years ago haha. That taggie blankie brought me more comfort than it did Fysh though I think. My favourite of theirs though I think was the winter sleep sack. It's like a sleeping bag but it has a space where the bottom harness of the carseat can slip through so there's no awkward trying to get the blanket wrapped and unwrapped etc...

Today I had one of those evenings where if you offered me Chinese food and Pepsi in exchange for my kid I would have accepted it and thanked you dearly while waving him off with a smile.  For a while I sat thinking fuck I'm a horrible parent, like who even finds their own kid annoying? So I posted a status on fb and as it turns out I am in fact simply human and not a bad mom.  And that if you think that feeling this way makes me...

Yesterday was a pretty decent day considering the last few we've had. I paid my car thanks to some help and I even managed to do a small grocery shop so that was a total win. We'll still need to make sure the eskom bill gets covered but at least I have until next week before that becomes an issue again and hopefully I get a client or two in this week so that won't be a stresser :)  Besides those small victories it was made even better by numerous...
