Facebook reminded me that yesterday marks 4 years of being back on my meds full time. This also means that it's been 4 years of government clinic hours, figuring things out and navigating my way through the system. There are a lot of nay-sayers and people who turn their noses up at public health care because "it's only for the poor" or "but it's so dirty" and the one I've heard so often "the Doctors clearly aren't good enough to work at public hospitals, you shouldn't go there". The thing...

Before I even start this I'm going to let you know that if you use CUPCAKE at checkout your get 10% off the next box you buy ;) cause you're going to want to  use it...

Stephen Fry. A lot can be said from this man who challenges the church, stalks through jungles trying to find endangered species and openly speaks about mental disorder. And he narrates all 7 Harry Potter books...

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...
