The wind beneath my wings – Sailing with Klaus from Wildwind Adventures Mauritius

There has been many a day that whilst on my sunset walks, I would amble past the Hobie cats and other watersport equipment in front of the hotels on Mont Choisy beach convinced that it was unavailable for use to the locals and only for hotel guests.

Island life & Beauty Routines

Let’s go supping they said, it will be fun they said…

I was recently talked into a supping lesson by new friend and owner of Aqua Blue situated here in Mauritius. Let’s go supping she said….it will be fun she said…. I was a teeny bit skeptical if I have to be totally honest but being me I am always up for a challenge! 😉 Costumes […]

New Year, New goals? Not this girl! Not this year!

It’s the fourth of January 2019 and I woke up this morning realising that for the first time in my adult life I have exited an old year and entered a new year goal-less (does such a word even exist?), plan-less, expectation-less and resolution-less, OK, I am making them up as I go along. :p […]

Do you want some cheese with that whine

Teens, messy kitchens and dirty mugs

These days I am in a current state of tug-of-war of not wanting my kids to ever leave home and wanting them to leave so my house can just be neat and clean for a short while. #gasp Yes I said it, sometimes I wish/dream of a clean, tidy house. Now I know I will […]
