A little catch up

5 Apr

So after my sad post on Monday, I’ve had a pretty okay week.

Last week I got a gift sent to my house from McDonald’s and I love gifts. It was a message about how busy our lives are and how we need to spend quality time with our families OFFLINE – something social-media-obsessed people like me have a hard time doing and I know I’m not alone!!! And the box included a meal voucher to spend on the family on Family Day. One thing Sunny Bunny loves is running around and playing with other kids so off we went for lunch on Monday. What made that time even more precious was that Lester had been to run the Two Oceans Marathon that weekend so we all just needed time to catch up and be together and yes, I managed to put my phone in my bag and leave it there for a little while.

This weekend will be spent cuddling with Sunny Bunny as he gets over a chest infection (which I gave to him while he was with me over the weekend) and then I have the wonderful pleasure of a chef coming to my house on Monday night to prepare a meal for my boys and I. If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m not a domestic goddess in the least! I live by one-pot-wonders and if it can be left to cook on its own, like grills, then I’m thrilled. You honestly cannot understand how excited I about Monday… Stay tuned to see how it goes….

Have a lovely weekend whatever you end up doing and whom ever you chose to be with – life is for the living so let the special people in your life know it.

Peace and Love



Monday MeMe

6 Mar

Robyn over at Memoirs 4 My Munchkins tagged me in her Monday MeMe. Of course, I am delayed as usual! But here goes:

The rules

  • Post 11 things about yourself
  • Answer the questions given
  • Set 11 new questions
  • Tag people

About me:

  1. I am currently juggling being a student and mother and wife at this blessed age in my life
  2. I’m so looking forward to turning the big 3-0 soon
  3. I have a Master’s degree but couldn’t find a job for an entire year (hence the studies)
  4. I miss living on the coast but I love this big city
  5. I would really love to have another child, it’s a longing in my heart that might never go away but I don’t know if that will happen after my studies are done in another five years!!!
  6. I am definitely a chocoholic! The richer and darker – the better!!!!
  7. I’m shy and take a while with strangers. That’s weird because running a practice required me to meet new people on a daily basis.
  8. I like my space and if I could, I would spend my time curled up with a book because I miss reading.
  9. Giving birth naturally (with the help of a pethidine injection) was one of the most awesome experiences of my life. I found it to be very empowering as well. If I can do all 8 hours of THAT – surely I can do anything! (I think)
  10. I loathe unpacking, especially when you’ve moved!!!
  11. Sam sleeps in our room and once we’re in bed, he crawls in. We’ve co-slept since he was two weeks old, sleep training never worked and I have  no inclination to change a thing about our arrangement!

These were the questions given:

  1. If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be and why? Nelson Mandela, he is iconic, need i say more?
  2. What is your greatest achievement? Raising my son and getting my first degree (in no particular order)
  3. What is your greatest fear? Failing!
  4. Which “normal” person do you most admire? (no celebs!) My dad, he works so hard to provide for his family and so many other people out there, he has the biggest heart I know.
  5. What do you like most about yourself? I’m relatively easy-going.
  6. …And least? I borderline OCD…
  7. What is your favorite holiday destination and why? Franshoek – cheese and wine! Who could resist?
  8. What is the worst Christmas or birthday present you have received and who gave it to you? I can’t think of any…
  9. What is your happiest childhood memory? Playing in our massive yard at my childhood home for hours on end and never getting bored.
  10. What did you want to be when you were a kid… as in what profession? A doctor
  11. What is your motto in life? Treat people the way you want to be treated

Here are my 11 new questions:

  1. you can pick one chocolate from the box. What do you hope is inside?
  2. What creeps you out?
  3. Are you an early bird or night owl?
  4. If you were going to redecorate your home, what would you change?
  5. What books do you enjoy reading?
  6. What’s your favorite season?
  7. Would you have another child if money wasn’t an option?
  8. What would you do if you didn’t have to work?
  9. Savory or sour?
  10. Are you addicted to any form of social media?
  11. Does your partner think that you’re addicted to any form of social media?

I hope you got to know a little more about me…. now I’m looking forward to hearing about

LET’S GO!!!!
