Christmas 2017

I haven’t really ever written about our Christmas celebrations and what we do. But while the season is still sitting in the foreground of all of our memories, I might as well log it and share a few simple traditions we always do on Christmas Day. Continue reading “Christmas 2017”

6 Things I learned about Cherry Picking

What is with this time of the year? It’s insane how, as much as I try to rest and chill – the more activity pops up and all of the dreams I had to sit and blog my heart away, are “poof!” – gone. I’ve just had to come to terms with the fact that my life is continuously busy and I’m just going to have to snatch as many ‘me’ moments as I can. This would be to do the things that I want to do and hopefully make awesome memories with my family.

Talking about memories with family. Continue reading “6 Things I learned about Cherry Picking”

What The Kids Need When Dad Is Away

Tim has been away for a week now and I always find it fascinating how I respond to him being away and also how the kids respond to him being away. Let’s talk about the kids first. I remember when I first became aware of how each child reacts to the absence of their father. I think Iraina was one and a half Continue reading “What The Kids Need When Dad Is Away”

Being a Tourist in our own Town

This past weekend had us do something we haven’t done as a family in a long time. Having a baby/toddler kinda puts brakes on a lot of activities. But we’re at an age now where we can go out more and not have to worry about the baby changing facilities and trying to clean up a baby out of the boot of your car.

So since we had some friends over from far away, we decided to “mini road trip” and hit the sites. First up, let’s just say that Cape Town weather was on our side and we had to out sunglasses on and enjoy the sunshine. We hit Signal Hill and as usual, it didn’t disappoint.

Our Zimbabwe Trip – Day 10&11, Saying Good-bye

Ok, I know it’s taken forever to write this post, but getting back into routine has taken the consistency right out of me. Here’s to Monday’s and getting it right again. (It’s like having a mini ‘New Years resolution’ every week)

I honestly feel that this is always the worst part of a holiday/trip. Especially if we have really enjoyed ourselves a lot. (obviously if the trip sucks, then- Yay! let’s get home) We were hosted by the best couple and have shared many special stories Continue reading “Our Zimbabwe Trip – Day 10&11, Saying Good-bye”

Our Zimbabwe trip – Day 8&9 The Nostalgia continues

I know it’s been a few days since I’ve actually posted anything – it’s been a crazy few days and trying to gather my thoughts and put them down hasn’t exactly been easy. But here it is and I hope you enjoy it.

The Friday and Saturday of our trip wasn’t as eventful as the previous days have been, but what I thought would be fun to do, is share with you some of the reasons I love my home country so much and then touch on a few aspects of the days as we go along.
