A sky full of wishes

A sky full of wishes

The last meteor shower I saw was the eta aquaria one when we went camping in the Karoo specifically to see it as a birthday gift. Tonight we can all watch another one. If you’re willing to stay up past midnight like us. I’m rather […]

Questions to ask your kid that aren’t “how was your day”

Questions to ask your kid that aren’t “how was your day”

  Fysh loves being asked questions, maybe cause he loves talking so much?  Who knows. But ever since he was little, or at least since he started talking, he’s always wanted me to ask him questions and he often asks random ones back. His favourites […]

Small Business Saturday – The beginning

Small Business Saturday – The beginning

This time of year is hard AF for small business owners because while people are happy to spout the “support local/small businesses” that tends to be nothing more than say say when the festive season rolls around and they head directly for the big companies […]

Life lessons from the Sorting Hat

Life lessons from the Sorting Hat

I fall asleep listening to Stephen Fry read me an HP book every night, it’s the only way I can fall asleep, one of my quirks and why I have my own room cause M falls asleep to the sound of nothingness. The movies are […]

Dear Bullies…

Dear Bullies…

This post title has been sitting void of words in my drafts folder since September. I keep logging in to actually write it and I think it’s the main reason I stopped posting for so long even though I keeping saying it’s just because of […]

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 […]

Assignments and statistics

Assignments and statistics

I have a module this semester that seriously sucks, I know that last semester I said that Business English is the worst but I’d do it again if I could give Social Dimensions of Justice back! It’s made up of long essay assignments where most […]

The Creakers – Tom Fletcher

The Creakers – Tom Fletcher

My taste in books seems to have massive leaps between genre’s the only ones I can never get into are period/war type novels. Lately it’s more YA and psychological but I got The Creakers by Tom Fletcher a while back and it’s what I grabbed […]

Flowercrowns and Treatment

Flowercrowns and Treatment

Did you know that if you added up all the patients with rare diseases you would have more people than all of those with cancer and AIDS combined? That’s a lot of people without support because rare diseases aren’t as funded for treatments as Cancer […]

The life-changing magic of not giving a fuck | Sarah Knight

The life-changing magic of not giving a fuck | Sarah Knight

I can’t recommend reading this book enough, it’s fantastic. It really is brilliant. I think this woman speaks directly to my brain, all her books do. I’ve been hooked on her books since Jonathan Ball Publishers sent me the Get Your Shit Together Journal to […]

I feel pretty. Pretty damn tired.

I feel pretty. Pretty damn tired.

I had planned on a long blogpost about how amazing the new Amy Schumer movie is and how it really taught me a thing or three about feeling good about yourself, and while I really want to and still think that every woman should watch […]

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 […]

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 […]

Currently – August 2018

I know that it’s said too often but this year really has seemed to just whoosh by us. It feel like a month ago that we were enjoying a weekend in Greyton for my birthday and yet here we are prepping for Fysh’s birthday on […]

Stove top popcorn

Stove top popcorn

I love popcorn but I’ll admit that for the longest time ever I wasn’t able to make it on the stove. It was nothing but bags in the microwave for us and those aren’t exactly cheap. A few years back I had a sailor staying […]

Currently – July 2018

It’s been a wirl-wind month and it’s only the 11th! Between packing and working through my list of orders and shit that needs to be done I swear I have lost days because I actually had to double check my calendar now! Got my second […]

Baffle them with bullshit

Baffle them with bullshit

Last night I was asked for life advice… Apparently I look like the kind of person who has her shit together, oh boy, I’m not sure if I should take it as a compliment or not though cause man oh man I really do not […]

we had SNOW much fun

we had SNOW much fun

From a drought to 2 years of rain in one season and the most snow we’ve had in 10 years… It’s been a pretty good winter cause you know how much I love puddle jumping. But back to the snow… Tuesday morning I woke up […]

WE. ARE. MOVING!

WE. ARE. MOVING!

At long last I can officially say it and I can’t be more excited or scared shitless. Fysh and I have had this dream of buying a van and living out of it for years now, and then we met The Person and hey guess […]
