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 […]

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 […]

“why do you homeschool?”

“why do you homeschool?”

I often get asked why I homeschool, and I’m often told my child isn’t getting the right opportunities and that I’m making him anti social as he’s not able to socialise enough. Why I argue this : firstly, that sort of thinking means that being in […]

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 […]

#ayearinmysketchbook

I mentioned vaguely that I’m going to be attempting a 365 project in 2017. It’s two days to go and I’m starting to wonder if I’m setting myself up for failure. Either way, I’m obviously going to try my absolute best NOT to fail. I’ll […]

Things unschooling has taught me

Things unschooling has taught me

We’ve been homeschooling for 9 months now, well actually we started off with the plan to homeschool but then we found that the whole structure thing isn’t really for us and that unschooling is more up our Alley. It’s something that comes really naturally to kids, […]

goodbye march ♥

goodbye march ♥

You know, as far as months go March wasn’t a horrible one. I haven’t quite caught up on my November/December debt yet, actually I added to that with the breaking down of my car but despite that it didn’t quite suck as much as I […]

are you a reader? I need you!

are you a reader? I need you!

I’ve been blogging for 10 years (joh!) this year and 5 of those ten years I’ve been doing book reviews. In that time I’ve made really great friends and a lot of those friends are authors. When you get to really know published authors you […]

a little rant about noise sensitivity

a little rant about noise sensitivity

This morning I finally got an email from a company I put an order in with days ago confirming that they would deliver “this morning”. So instead of heading out like I’d planned to so that we can go and do some work at the […]

around the mountain and through the woods

around the mountain and through the woods

Usually The Person and I alternate weekends between myself and him but the past 2/3 months he’s been every weekend cause we have the pool and with it being so hot it needs work, also it’s here to swim in and cool down where as […]

minor vent post

“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.” — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows I’ve followed this girl on instagram for a while now, I think I started following her through someone else […]

shit storms, car jamming and just being despondent

You may or may not have noticed I’ve been absent the last few weeks. If you didn’t, well you suck. I’ve had some good reasons for being away but the biggest its that every time I sit down to blog I lose interest or want […]

you are not alone! by Jess McKay

I had the pleasure of meeting Jess at a media launch a few years back and I’m so glad we’ve stayed in touch, she’s an amazing person to follow and despite the hiccups and things thrown at her she always manages to get back up. […]

you are not alone! by Lizanne Pitt

I met Lizanne from clayjarpeople (and here) years ago on twitter and she’s great, for the first time this year though I got to meet her in person and she’s even better, she totes get’s the awkwardness and doesn’t make you keep up conversation if you don’t […]

you are not alone! by Mia

I met Mia at her birthday earlier this year (I think, time is weird to me) via The Person, well he was invited but I tagged along and I’m glad I did. She’s an amazing woman and has recently-ish opened up a second hand bookshop… […]

currently – september things

I have no idea what to actually blog about so here’s a little “currently” post idea I nabbed from The Blessed Barrenness… Reading – Today I started “Why you were taken” by JT Lawrence. A proudly South African author which I’m totally loving right now. The […]

side effects

There seems to be this stigma that only weak people take medications for mental health (I was told this). Well fuck you if you’re one of those that think so. Seriously. Because you know what you’re not considering? Side effects. And let me tell you […]

dear two parent families

HOW DO YOU DO IT? I am dead serious, how do you manage splitting yourself between your person and your kid? For me raising Fysh alone is the only thing I know, I have him with me 24/7 7 days a week unless he’s at […]

the weekend in review

It’s Monday and I’m sitting here so fucking frustrated today I just want to cry which is dumb. I had a fantastic weekend but you know how that saying goes that if you go to bed in a foul mood you’ll wake up having a […]

internets and karma and catching up

As you’ve noticed I’ve been a little quiet here. There are so many things I can tell you as to explain why but all of them are nasty comments directed at someone so let’s rather not go into it. Long story short I don’t have […]
