VOX by Christine Dalcher

VOX by Christine Dalcher

While not a psychological thriller (I don’t think it’s listed as that) this might have been one of my scarier reads for this year. I love a good dystopian read but while most of them feel like they could be a farfetched possibility, reading this […]

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 […]

collecting scars and memories

collecting scars and memories

When he was about 2 Fysh tried to climb into my then golf and slipped as it was wet which resulted in a massive bump on his forehead. Today still if you look in the light you’ll see there’s an actual dent in his forehead. […]

🎃 TRICK OR TREAT 🍭

🎃 TRICK OR TREAT 🍭

Last night the unicorn was invited to go trick or treating at a friends complex, they do it annually and it’s so awesome! Our road is too damn religious and racist to even consider letting the kids dress up and ask for candy – it’s […]

The day the tooth fairy died

The day the tooth fairy died

As you know I’ve always been on the fence about the whole Santa and Tooth Faerie thing because my parents went all out when we were kids but we just haven’t been in the sort of environment where I can really do that for Fysh. […]

deception or imagination creation?

deception or imagination creation?

The tooth faerie came to visit us again last night, this time she had to answer a note that came with the tooth > do you eat teeth? When I was pregnant and before the concepts of bunnies that deliver chocolate eggs and fat men […]

spontaneity vs planning

spontaneity vs planning

I like to think that I can be spontaneous and don’t need a rigid schedule but I’m just lying to myself. While I don’t write it all down and list it hour by hour like some people I do plan out my day and week […]

FACT FRIDAY – NINJA’S

FACT FRIDAY – NINJA’S

We were at the opening of The Kids Gym on Wednesday and they have these really cool classes the kids can do, one in particular is The NinjaZone where they learn to be ninja’s. Basically it’s a mix of martial arts, gymnastics and parkour. So […]

Fact Friday – fingerprints

Fact Friday – fingerprints

The other day we were hanging up washing and Fysh asked why we have fingerprints. The best I could answer him is that they help us grip onto things. Well that answer didn’t really placate it, he knows about using fingerprints to find people because […]

The adventures of August and Tiny Hoof

The adventures of August and Tiny Hoof

It’s no secret that Fysh has never been very artistic, sure he’d scribble and occasionally he’d paint something but in general he didn’t seem to have much of a concept for it or even an actual interest in it and then this past week he […]

About last night – Catherine Alliott

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 […]

4 weeks down. 48 to go

4 weeks down. 48 to go

Last year I got a bee in my bonnet and during a manic episode somehow decided that a 365 project would be a fantastic idea.  I was going to do a drawing every day for the year. At first the idea was to have a […]

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 […]

end of the month butternut pie

end of the month butternut pie

It’s mid month January and I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one raiding the sofa for a few coins. I raided the kitchen to see what I had to work with and found a lone butternut, an onion and pie crust so…  MONTH […]

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

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 […]

my dads beer bread recipe

my dads beer bread recipe

I forgot to get bread yesterday and Fysh has this thing about his toast ever since we got a toaster for xmas so he was a little miff when he realised we’re out. But I am not putting on pants just to go to the […]

craft swap anyone?

craft swap anyone?

I thoroughly enjoy the bookswaps I hosted last year but think I’m going to keep them to twice a year simply because they are so much admin and I don’t make anything for my time and effort. BUT I’ve been itching to do a local […]
