#MothersDayConnect – A few things I learnt

If you follow me on YouTube, which I really think you should, you would have seen my video yesterday about my #MothersDayConnect experience. There is so much more to say about the experience than what I shared in the video, so I thought I would share a few things I learnt from the experience. Bureaucracy, […]

My Seven Year Labour To Motherhood

My husband and I got married in August of 2002. A couple of months after our honeymoon, I became ill and after a visit with our Dr, it was confirmed that I had an ear infection. I was treated with antibiotics but just never felt better. I struggled for weeks with bouts of nausea and […]

There is always something to be grateful for.

I had a whole different post in my head for today. I lay in bed writing it in my head last night and edited (still in my head) this morning. Then the morning chaos happened and I decided that I actually am not giving those thoughts airtime. Instead we are going to focus on the […]

Lets stop and smell the roses

I haven’t done a gratitude post in a while, so what better way to start the week than with some gratitude. It is a really grounding exercise when we stop, take stock of what we have and focus on all the positivity that surrounds us! Gluten free garlic bread! Woolworths have a growing gluten free […]

A list of gratitude

It’s been a while since I have done a gratitude post and what better time to do one that at the start of the week. My mom in law sent me a message today saying there are 60 days until Christmas! WHAAAT! But chaos aside, that means there is less than 2 months until we […]

{11 Weeks to Christmas} Giving Back

Money is always tight in our house but every year I always marvel at how spoiled my children get at Christmas. There is never nothing under the tree for them and while some Christmases there is less, they never worry that they will not get what they want. I have always tried, especially around Christmas […]

Let’s stop and be grateful

I haven’t done a gratitude post in a while so I thought it was time to stop, take stock of the positive and remind myself that life isn’t all unpaid bills, sick kids and broken promises and that there is lots to be grateful for. I am still doing my #3goodthings with the fabulous Karin, […]

The launch that made me cry

Back in the day, when blogging was still simple, we used to get together regularly. We had tweet ups, we celebrated each others birthdays, weddings or just organised random get togethers for whoever could make it. It was one of the best parts about blogging and being online for me. I loved the interaction and […]


This week has been rough with Jack culminating in a meltdown of epic proportions over his pants. You see he has about 7 pairs of jeans. He wears them all, except for one as the button is not right. When we bought the jeans they were ripped slightly intentionally. Because he has worn these jeans […]

{Week 15} Support I have it

Kiara had movie night at school tonight. It started at 18h00. One of her friends at school would have had to stay at school until 18h00 because her mom was unable to fetch her and get her back in time, so she came home with us. There were a few other kids who also stayed […]
