I have decided to start a new post “Weekly Whimps” to quickly share what I’ve read or seen this week that really captured my attention or what I loved.I tend to take forever to make a collage or dedicate one item for an entire post,so here’s the low down.. 1. I bought the beautiful Kinfolk [...]

Kruger National Park

We went to Kruger National Park for the holidays and had the best time.I have loved the bush since I could remember and for me there’s nothing like it,I couldn’t wait to share it with Ruby.It wasn’t our first choice though,we planned on going to Greece in July,tickets were booked,travel insurance,accommodation ect but we couldn’t [...]

Gardening with Ruby

This is our vegetable garden.I enjoy showing Ruby where our food comes from and she’s also eager to learn all the names of the herbs and vegetables.Seedling trays are a fun way for kids to take part and understand how seeds grow into plants.The process of nurturing plants teaches important life lessons very directly especially patience.You [...]

April is Autumn

Just like that it’s Autumn and I can’t believe it’s April already. April is a good month though, the beginning of the year always feels fresh and exciting but I also experience a bit of pressure to do better than the year before,so much so that I forget to just enjoy whatever happens organically.I think [...]

Twanka Karoo with my family

I slept outside on a mattress that night next to my mother and we just star gazed and wondered if the world will [...]

Ruby turned 2

I baked a pink castle cake for Ruby, the type of cake little finger love eating off from. Do you remember those old school cakes? You hardly ate the actual cake, more the icing and the toppings. I used Astros, marshmallows,Zoo cookies, anything pink I could find and I rented a bubble machine and it really [...]

Churchhaven

We went to Churchhaven up the West-Coast a few weeks ago for Easter Sunday. Churchhaven has the same effect on me as Arniston, the moment you arrive you feel relaxed, maybe too relaxed.It was just a perfect day with the family,drinking wine, having leg of lamb and Ruby discovering the joy of egg hunt, so [...]
