spontaneity vs planning

About last night – Catherine Alliott

The good reads synopsis really does the summary of this book perfectly; it’s a funny, enthralling and heartwarming story of a woman who gets a second chance in life – but will she have the courage to take it Molly has moved from London to […]

Stubborn or Determined?

Stubborn or Determined?

I haven’t really been writing here much lately as you can tell despite having several things to review and books to talk about. It’s been easier for me to Instagram my thoughts and I feel a bit more validated there like people are actually seeing […]

A letter to my “woman parts”

A letter to my “woman parts”

‘Sup bitch. When I was in school I decided no kids for me and yet at 20 you were carrying a little bean that would turn into the smart mouthed brilliant soul that is my minion.  However, you didn’t very much like this bean and changed […]

silwerstroom strand

silwerstroom strand

I am not really a beach person. I am more a river in a forest sort of person mainly because the forest is pretty and green and has shade which means I can hide from the sun that my body is allergic to. I do […]

damn annoying brain

damn annoying brain

Often my brain frustrates me so much. Have you even had that moment when something feels really familiar and then it triggers an old memory that you can’t fully grasp but it nags and nags and nags and you just have to figure it out? […]

black cats and voodoo dolls

It’s Friday the 13th and I know a lot of people think it’s bad luck or whatever. To me it’s another day, although I’ll admit that this morning did actually start off crappy though, my housemate had to put his 18 year old cat down […]

A trip to the dentist

A trip to the dentist

So according to the oral hygienist this morning kids are supposed to start making trips to the dentist from the moment they have all their milk teeth. I had NO idea. I really didn’t. Did you? Well when I went to the clinic last year […]

my year in books

my year in books

Every year I set a reading goal. A number of books to try and read before the year is out. For 2013 I read 185 books according to GoodReads (actually I read more but a lot of them were re-reads and GoodReads doesn’t count those) […]

Getting ready for the new year

Getting ready for the new year

I haven’t made new years resolutions since high school, because generally resolutions aren’t stuck to. As that Phineas and Ferb episode where Doofenshmirtz finds out no one keeps resolutions points out. Big goals are also out for me because I get overly anxious that I NEED […]

Movies to get you in the holiday spirit

Movies to get you in the holiday spirit

We all got some really shitty news today. A fucking oompa loompa has been voted into the oval office because apparently orange is the new black and Americans are more offended by emails than by racism, sexism, bigotry and xenophobia. Hitler 2.0 cause it was […]

Time waits for no person

Time waits for no person

Is it just me or has time been upping it’s game from marathon to sprinting lately? I’ve noticed it in silly things, like I want to do a blogpost but then I get busy and think “I’ll do it tomorrow” and then all of a […]

i ♥ my typo planner thing

Every year in January since Typo opened up by us I mission and buy one of their cute A6 diaries when they go on the 50% sale. This year they didn’t have that sale and so I waited a little longer but they never had […]

easy microwave fudge recipe

easy microwave fudge recipe

I suck at fudge making, I just can’t. I usually end up with some form of weird toffee concoction that tastes good but definitely can’t class as fudge. And it’s a mission and a mess and you may as well throw your good pan away […]

from NICU to now

from NICU to now

Sometimes it feels like yesterday that I was pregnant and other times it feels like an entire lifetime ago. Looking at him now it’s hard to believe that he weighed a mere 1.7kg and was escorted off to the NICU and was kept in a little box. […]

mortgage, rent, school fees and taxes for a 6 year old

** Not a sponsored post. Just sharing a great find. I mentioned the other day that Fysh has wanted a monopoly set for quite a while and was pretty distraught after the little incident where he “won” a set and then it was realised they gave […]

easter at casa cupcake

easter at casa cupcake

We don’t really do easter as such, I’m not religious and don’t believe in the whole rising of some dead dude etc, and easter was stolen from a pagan holiday and Anglo-Saxon tradition but that’s a whole post all on it’s own. We sort of do […]
