When is the good time to visit Cape Town with kids…

It all started with a message saying “…When is the good time to visit Cape Town”. My answer was if you want to catch the ZA festive vibe, visit in the beginning of December to the first week of January. There are lots of people at the tourist attraction places and it is all fun. BUT visiting with kids I will choose two weeks after festive craziness. To my delight they chose the latter. I was looking forward to play a tourist guide. It was very easy to prep a schedule given that they have two kids. I also have […]

The Perfect Holidays Part 3

Written by , Posted in Travel

I know this is the second month of the year and I am still talking about December holidays, but who forgets good time spent with family?.  Not me at least.  Click here and here to catch up on previous posts about the perfect holidays. On our way from Johannesburg I stocked up on all the goodies for kids. I could not wait to see Muli and my family. Driving home was pleasant. I have seen North West Provence in all seasons and have driven many kms in rain, thunders and sunshine but seeing the rivers running, the dams being full […]

First Day of Kindergarten.

A day before Zee went to Kindergarten, I slept very late. I kept on turning and tossing waiting for the sun to come out so I can see the day when Zee goes to school for the first time. And guess what?. I over slept, ha. I woke up an hour later than my normal wake-up time. I quickly got ready and prepared the kids. Zee was excited. She kept on saying ‘go kool’. Meaning I am going to school. She repeated the words many times. It is very neat to watch Muli interacting with her little sister. She is a […]

Zee is 18 months and she is starting kindergarten tomorrow. She thinks she started too late, ha!. She does not understand why should Muli go to school and leave her. Every morning she wears Muli’s school uniform and refuses to take it out. When I came from work I made her carry her new backpack. She was very excited for like 2.5 minutes. I just blinked and there was no bag on her back, she threw it on the floor. Ha!. But she thinks she is so ready to go to school. Ready or not, we are excited and ready […]

I have never hit the snooze button like I did in the past few weeks.  I am sooooo lazy to wake up in the morning.  Today my alarm rang once and I kicked off the blankets.  As I was running in the morning breezed I vowed never to hit a snooze button like I do this days.  I need to stop being lazy and go out for a morning run or walk.  Summer will be over soon, and I will miss morning runs.  Ok, back to Perfect Holidays. Our hotel in Bloemfontein did not disappoint. We arrived before the sun […]

Festivities + Perfect holidays Part 1

20170923_150224

How is it possible that we are approaching end of the first month of the year?. I am sitting here reminiscing about December holidays. Me and Cullo live far from our immediate families. Every year we try to have two weeks or more with our families. In the year 2016 we were in Malawi and we had a blast with family and friends. This past Christmas holidays we were in Mafikeng to spend some time with my side of family. I really don’t know which holidays are more perfect than the once spent with family. Our holidays started before the […]

I thought it will be great to pop-in and document the highlights of 2017. I can’t believe we are here already. Plans about holidays, x-mass shopping are on full swing. Please raise your hand if you cant concentrate at work and so looking forward to holidays. Mine is up. I am seriously feeling anxious. I don’t know whether to start counting down the days to the close of the office or I should just chill and wait for the day. I also feel like doing nothing and go out to the beach at every chance I get, play with kids […]

I miss writing regularly.  After a long day at work and taking care of kids and house hold staff all I want is to rest.  Today I am |sitting here in the lounge, kids are fed, bathed and tugged in bed.  I just felt like writing.  There are a random things going on in my head. Like, I JUST CUT ZEE’S HAIR.  Yep.  I was giving girls a bath and I just took a scissor and chop off all the hair.  Why do I feel sad though?.  Its only hair it will grow again.  I have been thinking of cutting them for […]

GO HIKE TABLE MOUNTAIN

Written by , Posted in Travel

I have a beautiful view of Table Mountain every day when I drive to work. As you can imagine, I drive to work in the mornings when it is raining, cloudy and when the skies are clear blue. My favourite mornings are when when The Majestic Table Mountain get to be covered with a blanket of cloud. It is a view to be hold. I always feel like Table Mountain is calling me because of the daily view. The other day I decided to answer to the call. It was the second day of spring and I welcomed spring with […]

My ray of sunshine.

Spring has sprung in this side of the country.  We are still having chilly days.  In those few hours when the sun is out we make use of the chance and go play outside.  You are welcome to admire the amazing vegetation in these pics.  I don’t want to talk about spring right now.  I just want to talk about my ray of sunshine. Lets forget about those ugly moments. Like those nights when I have just fed her for the 4th time and within 8min she is up again. Or those days when she refuses to dress up to […]
