Friday night mom

So it’s 22h00 on a Friday night and we’ve just got home. Funny that because 6 years ago we would still be home at 22h00 and would almost be ready to go out. Now we’ve just hauled our very tired bodies inside. While he tries to get a very overtired and now irritable toddler out of her clothes and into pyjamas, I’m unpacking a picnic basket. I...

Walking the treadmill

I really enjoy walking on the treadmill. I’ve tried walking in the hills around Northcliff. No pavements, drivers are insane are the hills are murderous. By the time I’ve walked for 45 minutes up and down and over the mountains and around the bends I’m finished. I was hoping to get to a level where I could start jogging but it’s not going to...

New bookkeeper meeting

  So I’ve had a major falling out with my ‘bookkeeper’. Her name is Rosemary but there’s nothing Rose, sweet or fragrant about her.

So I did the curious cat thing an opened it.   It led me to this video.   I’m not going...

Decadent Crumpets

We’re lying in bed on a Saturday morning and Jade walks in and asks ‘what’s for breakfast?’ Andre says crumpets. So Jade goes off into the kitchen to make a batch of crumpets. After my visit to Nice in Parkhurst I had a brainwave. Let me try something new. We have leftover strawberries from the picnic that never was on Wednesday and the...

The Nile empties into the Mediterranean Sea

Aug 14

I have a daughter in Grade 7. She’s 13 and a teenager. They know everything. So she loves it when she manages to teach me something new. That I didn’t know before. That she DID know. The Nile is the longest River in the world (I knew that). The Nile empties into the Mediterranean Sea – that’s new to me. BC means Before Christ (I knew...
