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 […]

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 […]

backlash

backlash

My post on why I homeschool seems to have weeded a few people out of my timeline. I’ve been called childish and selfish for choosing to homeschool, that I had clearly not done any research because I don’t argue well and that Fysh will end up […]

Looking for snow 

Looking for snow 

Today The Person got a bee in his bonnet and decided we should take a drive out to Darling to see the flowers. My mom and Fysh went last week and the photos were amazing so we thought why not. I really wanted to show […]

Bowling for soup 

Bowling for soup 

Or for the fun of it anyway ;)  I haven’t been bowling since, shit I don’t know. Maybe since I was about Fysh’s age and running around Kolmanskop sneaking into the bowling alley. And then it was once or twice before we got caught (bowling […]

cowabunga!

cowabunga!

We got an invite from Nickelodeon Africa to go and see the screening of the new Ninja Turtles movie and I know how much Fysh loves the turtles (we even have the lego) so I of course said yes – thanks guys! We almost forgot […]

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part four – Southern Comfort Horse Ranch

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part four – Southern Comfort Horse Ranch

Southern Comfort Horse Ranch is in the middle of the forest in Haakenberg (just outside Knysna) and it’s as horsey as you’re going to get. A family run and maintained farm with the chattiest tannie and her daughter taking bookings. If you don’t like flies […]

One more stop. I think

One more stop. I think

We missioned through to Rosebank which was a good 40 minute drive (and that for capetonions requires padkos hahaha) for a birthday party and The Person headed there from Stellenbosch. For a party that was an hour and a half long.  So here we are, […]

DAY NINETEEN > Modern Monroe

DAY NINETEEN > Modern Monroe

SO many people ask me where I get my hair done and are gobsmacked when I say “in my bathroom” but it’s true, I do it myself (though The Person does help occasionally as you’ve seen) and you know what? I save a good 1 to […]

public holidays saffa style

public holidays saffa style

The Person had to head home yesterday already, the joys of working for yourself are that some times you simply don’t get to take the day off when everyone else does. I know this all too well – she says currently finishing up this post […]

favourite video of the week – The Maker

favourite video of the week – The Maker

  I found this on an authors time line and am so in love with it. The style, the music. Just everything about it. It’s so hauntingly beautiful and I wish I could put it into words. There is so much you can read into […]

galaxy hair – a tutorial

galaxy hair – a tutorial

Last time I posted a quick step by step of how I do my mermaid hair, well that was easy, one colour and BAM! But we’re going to take it a step further this time and add in two more colours to it, well I’ve […]

get rid of it. get rid of it all.

get rid of it. get rid of it all.

Ever have that feeling like there’s just too much stuff around you? And that it all needs to go right now? I’ve been having that feeling for a little while and today at 6am I decided fuck it all it’s going. I started in the […]

splish splash

splish splash

When we moved in here 6 years ago the pool was blue (which I’m pretty sure was done right before we took over cause it wasn’t when we viewed) and I kept it going and clean (the pump is on a timer) until the pump […]

what a festive season

So I have had so much work to do since the last post (yay) and then decided to take a bit of a break to just enjoy time with friends and family and boy did I people myself out for a change! From xmas eve […]

hello NaNo

We went to a dragon hunting party on Saturday at Afrikara and ended up coming home with a kitten cause you know, that’s just how we do things. I couldn’t help it though, I’ve always wanted another ginger kitten since Mau was killed, he was […]

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 […]

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 […]
