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 […]

Diet diaries……by Karolien

(my weight journey through the years, from skinny, to ugly fat and then fulsome forty! 🙂 )    Urgh yet another new year with another bevy of new years resolutions of which one always seems to be “LOSE WEIGHT AND BECOME MY 16 YEAR OLD SKINNY SELF  AGAIN”, and then 10 days later…oh how the […]

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… Kay

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 […]

Happy holidays…or is it?…….by Karolien

Whilst Christmas time is suppose to be a time of joy, fun and parties oftentimes not everyone around us experience it as such. Like I mentioned in a previous blog I myself am not too fond of the hype around Christmas and the craziness it brings. And social media does not help at all as it […]

Too Much or Too Little?….by the X-man (aged 14)

As a fourteen year-old boy, when I see all these kids, (some younger than I ),walk out of a tech shop with a brand new Xbox one or Playstation 4 ,I am confused. I wonder to myself ,where did they get the money to buy the console? Many of my friends have numerous consoles, and […]


To lunch or not to lunch…Part one of the bloggers lunch, by Karolien

  Ever wondered what happens when a few blogging moms get together for lunch? Unfortunately I cannot tell because what happened at lunch needs to stay at lunch as telling would be like cheating. 😉 What I can say is that we had a whole lot of fun and a whole lot of bellyache laughs. Pity […]

End of school year goodbyes….by Kay

Saying goodbye is never easy so much more when it’s end of term and you have to greet 20 little ones who’ve spent the greater part of the past year by your side, under your feet, on your lap or even on your nerves at times. 😉 Point is, one gets so attached to them that as […]
