Weaning Words.

I get such reactions from those who find out my 17month old Rooster still gets milk in the morning and before bed. It’s normal to have two to three milk feeds at this age but what is abnormal is the fact that Rooster gets his milk from the source and not the bottle. I really struggled at first to breastfeed. I was supplementing with formula from a cup at first so that Rooster wouldn’t get used to...

The Haircut!

For those of you who have read a few of my other posts, you would know that the husband works in hospitals and gets to see, smell and stitch some really interesting things. I am privy to this information being the wife and thereby an information leech. Yesterday, we were out in the garden where our firstborn (the dog) had obviously thought it was war time again and landed a landmine that I had to defuse before...

Life is Like a Bowl of Rainbow Ice Cream

The first year adjusting to marriage was interesting for me. I say interesting because actually admitting that I thought that the “honeymoon” period was really hard, would be breaking some kind of unspoken marriage code!

The Husband received this email and thought it appropriate for all you blogger friends. I thought it funny at first but now as I sit  here, I can do a few butt clenches and tummy tucks. You never know, blogging could be the cause of a healthier, thinner me! “The exercises below have been adapted from a ProBlogger post. Most of the names have been modeled after popular social media services such as Twitter,...

WARNING:Not for Those Already Feeling Emotional!

I’m not a tree hugger, a granola chick or one who is one with nature. I do however love being outdoors, I pick up litter even if it’s not mine and cry if the lion attacks one of the little guys no matter how many times my husband says, “but it’s nature”. Sometimes I don’t like nature. Let me explain with a few examples that I have been exposed to over the last little while. Starting...

The Helderberg Farm This lovely picnic, petting zoo is just outside of Somerset West on the R44 going towards Stellenbosch (directions to Helderberg Farm).
