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…

All the paint fun 

This morning we were at the waterfront for a networking breakfast and I decided to finally use the vouchers we got last year at an event for Art Jamming before they expire. Guys, it was SO much fun! I know I have canvas and paint at home but this is an entire studio just for…

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 him the weskus sneeu that blankets the fields up that…

Peppermint Crisp Tart… but cupcakes!

A while back Fysh and I were contacted and asked if we’d be willing to take part in a fun little challenge set up by GWK, one where we take a traditional South African recipe and give it our own unique twist. If you follow me on Instagram <cupcakemummy> you’ll be seeing in our stories…

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 it’s cost effective and filling and you can make SO…

A Table Mountain instameet

So as a local earning local monies we don’t go up the mountain really often because let’s face it, most of the fun things like that are aimed at the tourists and the dollars and euros that they bring with them and hiking up there in my severely unfit state would probably require me being…

#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 or the smell of farm or a communal kitchen with…

#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…

step by step mermaid hair

  Right, so many a person has asked me where I get my hair done, the answer used to be StyleBar but when I decided to go blue those lovely trips stopped as they don’t do fun colours so I had two choices; either find another salon or just do it myself. I got a…

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…
