I don't get to spend as much one on one time with my eldest as I used to. This is the trade off for having more than one child and I wouldn't change that for the world, but I do miss our time together so when I was invited to the mini #GirlMomsMeetUp (for mums… Continue reading When Mother-Daughter Date Day gets Disneyfied!
One of our good friends came over to stay for a week recently. She has stayed with us before but I never really paid that much attention to how long she took to get ready each day. By 'get ready' I mean from the moment she walks into the bathroom in the morning until she… Continue reading How much is too little?
About two months ago, I saw an ad on one of my Facebook groups from the owner of a slimming clinic who was looking for models. The offer was for three sessions of a treatment of my choice (body contouring, ultrasonic cellulite treatment, ultrasonic liposuction or ultrasonic stretch mark therapy). I confess I didn't read… Continue reading Nirvana Slimming and Aesthetic Studio – Giveaway!!!
I know that there will be some who will take offense to the title of this post. Before you do, you need to know that the title was decided on by the very brave woman who shared her day with us. If she is happy with it (and believe me, she put a lot of… Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Mentally Ill Mum

I don't have anything left to give. I'm tapped out. I need to be alone. This happens to me sometimes. I am an… Continue reading Running on fumes
Every family has stories that snowball into epic proportions as the years go by. Those tales from childhood that get dusted off and brought out at birthdays, weddings and other major life events to remind kids that they are lucky to have such forgiving and patient parents. I have three such stories from my childhood,… Continue reading My evolving relationship with a girl named Barbie
The year after I got married, I had the bright idea of getting a third degree. I had all the credits to jump into the second year of B.Comm Accounting so I registered, bought all the textbooks, a new comfy swivel chair, some awesome stationery and got into it. I only lasted one semester. At… Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Student Mum
There are some people in life that you just immediately click with, for me Jeanne-Riette is one of those people. She has a wicked sense of humour and loves food even more than I do! While she is not a typical 9-5 working mum (she runs her own business), she usually works a full day… Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Working Mum
My youngest is almost a year and a half. That's still really teeny tiny in non-scientific baby terms, yet she has a shoe obsession that outshines anyone I have ever known, except my mum (so sad that we don't wear the same size!) and a friend from campus. It's not that she has a vast… Continue reading My one year old’s shoe fetish

As a by-product, I will be giving you meal ideas that are really simple, quick,… Continue reading What’s for dinner?
