That Sunday Feeling…..by Karolien

  No school tomorrow but I am still suffering from Sunday blues? How does that work? I am supposed to be in seventh heaven because I don’t have to go to school in the morning but for some reason I am bogged down with ‘that Sunday feeling’, the feeling of despair, the no-man’s land of […]

Mauritian diaries Chapter 1……by Karolien

I am in Mauritius, sans kids, precious time away with hubby all by ourselves on a tropical island…… dream holiday come true? Yes and no….one thing I can say is that my type of Mauritius holiday is definitely not the same as the average tourist experience or what the brochure advertises. As I sit here writing my […]

Writersblock…….by Karolien – There’s life after kids

Stumped for words or something to say are so not part of my demeanor that it’s been a bit of a shock for me to discover that I had a blog due this week and ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what I wanted to write about….did I say that in past tense? Well truth is I still have no […]

Stand Out or Blend In……by Kay

Leaving school today and almost not finding my car due to the sudden influx of suv’s parked in the parking lot from mom’s fetching kids left me thinking. Yummy mummy’s, hippy moms, sporty moms and dressed for success business moms to only mention a few. Standing there for a moment trying to figure out where […]

Daughters and Dating……by Kay

Daughters and dating….I am pretty sure you could read a lot in that heading if you are a mom to a teenage girl. Pretty much up to now my daughter has been the perfect role model of the perfect daughter, well ok, not 100% so as she is no angel. Like everyone else she has […]

Home alone……by Kay

Home alone…you know that moment when everybody buggers off and you are finally on your own….that moment you’ve been savoring, been waiting for all week. And then, sadly the moment is almost too big! 🙂 Everyone’s gone, the house is empty and you find yourself wondering what to do. Not that that was the original […]

Fly against the wall….part 4 of the Breakfast Blogs….by the Girlchild

Against my better judgement, I decided to join my mom at the bloggers’ breakfast. I had a feeling that, as an innocent child, I would not be able to relate to their conversations. But, I knew my chance of getting free food would be higher if I tagged along. At least it meant that I […]

Breakfast; girly talk, giggles and giraffes…..Part 1 of the breakfast series…by Kay

Ending off 2016 with a wonderful bloggers lunch, I was quite keen on repeating the experience when it was mentioned, albeit jokingly, on our bloggers group chat earlier this month.  Any excuse is a good excuse for a morning with the girls, with the menfolk looking after the brats!   Needless to say, as all […]

Let’s go camping they said, it will be fun they said…..by Kay

Camping is as camping goes. Our family are keen campers and love to go camping although we don’t often get the chance. Yesterday we were in our element, arriving at the campsite, pitching our tents, on a high because we could finally relax. That was until the clouds started rolling in and we could see […]
