A mom and Fysh day at the waterfront!

We were invited by the V&A Waterfront to a mom and kid day and man oh man did we have a fantastic day! I’m actually not sure which of us had more fun to be honest, but I’m sure Fysh will argue that it was […]

Crazy lady (as Fysh calls her) won free entrance for her and a bunch of friends to The Fantastic Grifizzi Brothers (an animal free circus) that’s in Stellenbosch at the moment and The Person, Fysh and I got to tag along. Ever heard of those gypsy carnivals […]

Badger sunscreens for summer 

Summer in SA is HOT! And with the spring flowers coming and going earlier than usual this year it’s a good indication that we’re going to have a lot of tweets and posts about how we’re dying of the heat. And I don’t know about […]

Buggy for Bugz Play Park

Buggy for Bugz Play Park

We (read Fysh) had the time of our lives at Bugz Play Park yesterday. It’s sort of like a Ratanga minus the lengthy walk between each attraction and minus the creepy abandoned city vibes. Aimed at kids from about 2 to 12 and big bonus is […]

A while back this lovely lady I know decided to write a book on how to survive the first 1000 days of owning your own business based on her own experience and success.  I really love that she decided to share her knowledge and how […]

We did Dunkin donuts! 

Boojah! I can tick it eating epic Dunkin donuts off my bucket list!  I’m dead fussy when it comes to donuts. It needs to be a pretty damn good don’t and I can’t say I’ve had too many of those which really makes me think […]

The goodness gang, and why I’m okay with them. 

The goodness gang, and why I’m okay with them. 

We all know where I stand as a parent with these pay R150 and get whatever it is they’re trying to get you to collect. Mainly because I simply can’t afford to spend R150 every time we shop and because freelancing doesn’t lend you one […]

Nature’s Farm Pasta!

We had the most epic press drop full of farm goodness. There was cake flour and brown flour and really epic cookies and of course PASTA! I know that we shouldn’t eat pasta. Or at least in moderation but we are a pasta household as […]

[book review] The Brightest Star in the Sky – Chyemenn Santos

Earlier this year we had to have our beautiful border collie put down. Joonbug was a rescue we got shortly after moving into our home, it’s a big house and I wanted the safety of a dog. Well it turned out she definitely wasn’t much […]

That new phone smell… 

That new phone smell… 

Most of you know I’ve been having phone issues for a while now where it switches off as it wants and doesn’t support most apps (because the ios doesn’t upgrade higher than 7).  It got progressively worse till a point last week where it  decided […]

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 […]

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 […]

My mama turned the big FIVE OH on Saturday and we celebrated it with a surprise party at the pottery studio in Melkbosstrand that her friend owns :) It’s really a gem of a spot. We used to drive all the way to houtbay to […]

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 […]
