Fact Friday – fingerprints

The other day we were hanging up washing and Fysh asked why we have fingerprints. The best I could answer him is that they help us grip onto things. Well that answer didn’t really placate it, he knows about using fingerprints to find people because of NCIS etc but then in an episode of Numb3rs…

Mom doubt. And pride. 

Every damn day since the day I found out I was pregnant my life has been wracked with doubt.  Doubt about whether I’m eating right, sleeping enough, holding him properly, feeding him enough etc… Tonight though I have one less thing fret about though. You see, my step father is an asshole. He’s a sexist,…

A boy and his dog/s

​When I moved into my place I decided we needed a dog. Not just because I’m used to always having one but because it was always just Fysh and I alone in a big house in a neighbourhood where we didn’t know anyone. We looked around and asked about and I decided to adopt a…

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 covered but at least I have until next week before…

Give that kids a bells! (or a high five at least) 

So a while back I was looking for pictures of long hair with undercut cause in summer my hair is a killer and thought maybe it’d be a good idea but I was worried that having bright hair and an undercut would be overkill but I found this epic photo which to me proved it…

we had so much fun at Snow World!

#wherethefuckiscupcake – Part three – Out of place

We packed up our goods and headed out at check out instead of staying an extra day like we’d originally had planned because of course the forest was calling. Being on route 62 we decided we HAD to go to Ronnies Sex Shop seeing as it was only 2km away. Ronnies is one of those…

have you been to My Sugar yet?

I’ve been following My Sugar for a while on instagram and keep threatening to go there because artisanal chocolate duh! So when we ended up in town with time to spare after taking a friend to see Newlands Forest I decided it was about damn time I curb my milkshake craving and head on through….

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… yeah, my new best friend haha ;) And here’s her…

chapter seven

The days have passed without me realising them. Sure I get up in the mornning and go to bed at night but they seem to blur into one another. I actually had to ask the delivery man this morning what day it was so that I could sign for it. I look over at it…

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 saffa author thing I mean. I read two books this…
