Books make me happy 

Books make me happy 

Yesterday was a pretty decent day considering the last few we’ve had. I paid my car thanks to some help and I even managed to do a small grocery shop so that was a total win. We’ll still need to make sure the eskom bill gets […]

from NICU to now

Sometimes it feels like yesterday that I was pregnant and other times it feels like an entire lifetime ago. Looking at him now it’s hard to believe that he weighed a mere 1.7kg and was escorted off to the NICU and was kept in a little box. […]

mortgage, rent, school fees and taxes for a 6 year old
