The thing about change

The thing about change

Change is inevitable, we know this, and yet I am still not the biggest fan unless it’s planned change. Planned by myself of course. Even then I struggle to really come to terms with it. Our move has been a massive change, monumental. For the […]

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 […]

Currently – August 2018

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 […]

Stove top popcorn

Stove top popcorn

I love popcorn but I’ll admit that for the longest time ever I wasn’t able to make it on the stove. It was nothing but bags in the microwave for us and those aren’t exactly cheap. A few years back I had a sailor staying […]

Currently – July 2018

It’s been a wirl-wind month and it’s only the 11th! Between packing and working through my list of orders and shit that needs to be done I swear I have lost days because I actually had to double check my calendar now! Got my second […]

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

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 […]

WE. ARE. MOVING!

WE. ARE. MOVING!

At long last I can officially say it and I can’t be more excited or scared shitless. Fysh and I have had this dream of buying a van and living out of it for years now, and then we met The Person and hey guess […]

You can do it kid

You can do it kid

I finished writing my last exam for the semester this afternoon. So that basically marks the end of semester one for me and I know it’s an extremely delayed reaction but it only hit me today that I am actually a freaking university student. I […]

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

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 […]

Roadtrips, waterfalls, near death and turning 30 in a forest

Roadtrips, waterfalls, near death and turning 30 in a forest

When it came to actually celebrating my birthday this year I didn’t really wanted to do anything, things are hectic at the moment with M applying for UNISA and me prepping for exams and so on, I said I would be completely happy with a […]

Goodbye 20’s

Goodbye 20’s

It’s the last day of my 20’s today, tomorrow I hit 30. People say all these things you should feel and my psych was worried that turning 30 would cause me more anxiety but honestly I’m okay with it. My early 20’s weren’t the party […]

Currently – April 2018

So it’s been a month, more? since we blogged. Needed a break, mainly because this juggling studies and work thing has taken a bit of time getting used to. Also because I’ve had nothing to really say or report and I’m over blogging just to […]

egg free flapjacks

egg free flapjacks

Fysh says to me he’s hungry and wants something. But not the somethings I made for lunch (a really nice pasta and tomato thing) or the somethings in the fridge (apples)  just something. So I missioned to the kitchen and stood there hoping something magical will […]

Wolfkop family festival

Wolfkop family festival

At the beginning of March we headed out to the Wolfkop Camping Villages just outside Citrusdal for the weekend to join the very first Wolfkop Family Festival that is now going to be an annual event. Before that weekend I’d never heard of Wolfkop before despite […]

We’re still here, still up and at em. Well okay not so much up and at em, I’ve basically been sick for the past 3 weeks. First is was just a cold, meh but nothing I can’t manage, said cold morphed into full blown seasonal […]

On turning 30

On turning 30

For a long time I dreaded nearing my third decade. It’s such a big number. Feels so much like a “you should have your shit together” kind of number which is silly I know but it’s just what it is. I had major anxiety about […]

squish it, squeeze it, mush it, smell it

M’s friends are having baby #2 and we were invited to the baby shower on Sunday. We were asked to bring a 20 x 20 crochet or knit square which might sound like a rather random request but turns out all the squares will be […]

some fresh air

some fresh air

It’s been a whirlwind here settling back down after my dad sailed off, taking on a large side project, finishing my book (we even got the printing quotes!) so pre-sales can go live, speaking to lawyers and just keeping us all alive in general so […]
