We spent NY at a farm up the way from us and to deal with the large amount of people I don’t know I always take something with that can keep me busy in case I feel uncomfortable. This time I grabbed a little slab […]

I am grateful for… true love

I am grateful for… true love

My person bought me a Harry Potter planner last year as a gift for doing so well in my exams. Originally I had planned on doing everything completely digital this year – saving paper and all that – but I mean come on, it’s Harry […]

Sunday waffles are the best waffles

Sunday waffles are the best waffles

Across the railway is a “little” garage station. But it’s not your usual garage station store vibes at all. They don’t even have those 3am hangover pies! No seriously. It’s called Zettlers and it consists mainly of imported sweets, overpriced tourist goods and the odd […]

Nothing to say but all the words

Nothing to say but all the words

I want to say that nothing remarkable has happened and that’s why we’ve been quiet but the honest truth is that I am generally just too damn tired and have no motivation these days. My essays for assignments are long so by the time I’m […]

Reflecting on my first year of University

Reflecting on my first year of University

I’ve successfully survived an entire year of being at university and have just registered successfully for this year and yet it still feels so surreal to admit that I’m a university student. It just doesn’t feel real at all. Is that strange? Does anyone else […]

Thank you 2018

Thank you 2018

I wasn’t going to do a reflection post but then I browsed through my instagram and realised just how much happened in 2018 and how much we survived/accomplished and that should be documented because it means we have a 100% survival rate so far. A […]

The last meteor shower I saw was the eta aquaria one when we went camping in the Karoo specifically to see it as a birthday gift. Tonight we can all watch another one. If you’re willing to stay up past midnight like us. I’m rather […]

Questions to ask your kid that aren’t “how was your day”

Questions to ask your kid that aren’t “how was your day”

  Fysh loves being asked questions, maybe cause he loves talking so much?  Who knows. But ever since he was little, or at least since he started talking, he’s always wanted me to ask him questions and he often asks random ones back. His favourites […]

Small Business Saturday – The beginning

Small Business Saturday – The beginning

This time of year is hard AF for small business owners because while people are happy to spout the “support local/small businesses” that tends to be nothing more than say say when the festive season rolls around and they head directly for the big companies […]

Life lessons from the Sorting Hat

Life lessons from the Sorting Hat

I fall asleep listening to Stephen Fry read me an HP book every night, it’s the only way I can fall asleep, one of my quirks and why I have my own room cause M falls asleep to the sound of nothingness. The movies are […]

Dear Bullies…

Dear Bullies…

This post title has been sitting void of words in my drafts folder since September. I keep logging in to actually write it and I think it’s the main reason I stopped posting for so long even though I keeping saying it’s just because of […]

I feel pretty. Pretty damn tired.

I feel pretty. Pretty damn tired.

I had planned on a long blogpost about how amazing the new Amy Schumer movie is and how it really taught me a thing or three about feeling good about yourself, and while I really want to and still think that every woman should watch […]

Level Up!

Level Up!

  Once upon a time a unicorn was born, he fought to stay in this world and he’s been fighting everything that it throws at him since and winning. This unicorn brought so much joy and laughter, yes some tears and attitude as well even […]

I know that it’s said too often but this year really has seemed to just whoosh by us. It feel like a month ago that we were enjoying a weekend in Greyton for my birthday and yet here we are prepping for Fysh’s birthday on […]

Baffle them with bullshit

Baffle them with bullshit

Last night I was asked for life advice… Apparently I look like the kind of person who has her shit together, oh boy, I’m not sure if I should take it as a compliment or not though cause man oh man I really do not […]

we had SNOW much fun

From a drought to 2 years of rain in one season and the most snow we’ve had in 10 years… It’s been a pretty good winter cause you know how much I love puddle jumping. But back to the snow… Tuesday morning I woke up […]

Get back up again

Get back up again

On Monday I write my first exam. I am so nervous that I have hardly been able to eat, my hands shake and I can cry at the drop of a hat. It’s not even one of the “big” ones, it’s business English but if […]

It’ll cost you a kidney, and maybe a cornea

I have the weirdest conversations with my editor, I think that if we lived closer we could have a pretty epic podcast going with just our odd talks. The other day we were talking about selling body parts, I can’t remember why exactly but we […]
