I think we all make sacrifices for our kids, financial, emotional, physical and even relationships.
When Zoe was born I didn’t have a job because we moved from Durban to Johannesburg so the choice was easy to […]
I’m so glad that Zoe is now at the age where I can sit her down and explain things to her. I just find that to give her reasons and explain consequences are so much better that shouting and smacking.
What can be more exciting than to be a kid and have a tree and lights, and an advent calendar and the excitement of gifts and writing letters etc etc.
We have lost so much of the magic with technology and tv […]
Very very weird.
Zoe is getting some Le Creuset Kiddies cooking stuff – they had a special in June where you get 3 for the price of 2. Her adoring Daddy is buying her an Ipad Mini – I think she is too young but hey it is his […]
It is such a horrible issue and difficult to have answers for every situation.
After a scare with Zoe at a running race when she took off like a hare when she couldn’t see us we taught her to stand still and […]
Thanks Mama-cat – as an update – I saw him again yesterday morning and he was actually driving carefully and mindfully. Let’s hope it stays like that.
It is great – I feel more positive and happier everytime I see something about him on FB or on BBM broadcast.
This is another story that is starting as a runner story but has evolved to teach me so many lessons.
In our running club we have a coloured family – Dad and son both run and they have joined us on our time […]
I agree – I’m so paranoid about motorcycles anyway – I think Zoe will walk regardless!
Yes I must admit I don’t know if there will be any consequences for the boy but at least I tried.
Yep I’ve turned into a meddlesome old woman. For the past year I’ve been sharing the road with a school boy on a yellow scrambler. He is beyond arrogant and reckless on this thing and I have now taken the […]
I can’t understand what goes on in the minds of people like this. Hi-jackings, house invasions and break ins – all have the motive of money so even though it’s not right I can in a way understand it.
But to […]
OK firstly – the horror of the two toddler sisters murdered – what kind of society do we live in where things like that happens on a daily basis – we can’t keep on blaming the government and everybody else […]
A very very good friend of mine went to Vitalab about a year ago and is now the proud mommy of a twins – born on the 30th of August. This was after numerous failed attempts with other doctors. You have chosen […]
Zoe will be 7 in January and I beyond broody – however I think it is a reaction to getting closer to 40 and knowing that my child bearing years are almost over.
Our lifestyle is shellfish and I can’t see how we […]
I’m sorry but if you don’t have the money you don’t spend it. I’m sure a matric farewell does not have to cost in the excess of R10K. Maybe Deblet can shed more light on this subject.
Good luck to your dad – […]

Goodness gracious – every time I read about the ex I want to go out, find her and give her a big fat smack, how can she always expect you to just cough up money.
I’ve given up on having a clean car – it just […]
