Sunday lunches used to be a thing. I’m not sure when the stopped being a thing? But in recent years it seems they have fallen by the wayside. A pity really, considering how lovely it is to enjoy a long, leisurely meal with your loved ones every week. Daily life is often too hurried for […]

Weekend Wanderings: Nederburg Wine Estate, Paarl

Our last stop on a day trip to Paarl was an iconic South African wine farm, Nederburg. It seems ridiculous to say that this was my first visit but it was… and afterwards, I wondered why! Wine tasting with kids in tow doesn’t usually work but at Nederburg this wasn’t to be the case… because […]

Weekend Wanderings: The Top of Table Mountain for Kidz Season

Winter in Cape Town is a surprising season… yes there is rain and cold BUT there is also an abundance of sunshine thrown in for good measure, for which, as a sunshine lover, I’m ever so grateful! On one such sunny Saturday, a few week’s back, I was invited to enjoy Cape Town’s most iconic […]

WIN: 4 tickets to Snow World at GrandWest
