Family Holidays: A Wild Coast safari at Inkwenkwezi

Our trip to the Wild Coast began with a verrrrry long drive from Cape Town to East London, followed by a few nights in my childhood home town…. But the real “wild” side of the holiday only really started the moment we drove through the gates of Inwenkwezi Private Game Reserve! We parked our car and […]

Weekend Wanderings: Rhebokskloof Wine Estate, Paarl

Back when the weather was chilly and the trees were bare we paid a visit to Rhebokskloof Wine Estate near Paarl for a lunch during our day out in the area. I somehow missed posting about this spot… and unfortunately I’ve now forgotten what I ate too so it can no longer be called a Restaurant […]

We’re well into the summer school holidays already which means parents everywhere are trying to juggle work, kids AND Christmas shopping. Crazy times! Thanks to a combination of late nights and forward planning I’ve very fortunately managed to put to bed most of my work and Christmas shopping already, for which I am very grateful as […]

Is there any better way to spend a summer’s day than with a picnic in a pretty place? Nope, there isn’t!! Now make that pretty place an award-winning wine farm and you’re set for an all round excellent day! We were very lucky indeed to spend one such day on a recent Saturday at the […]

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: Le Bonheur Crocodile Farm

During the winter school holidays we headed out for a day of kid-friendly fun in Paarl and had the best time… I love having fun with my kids and taking them to places none of us have experienced before. Watching them see the world through new eyes and enjoying it along with them is one […]

After our recent renovations our garden is in dire need of some TLC, but without much of a budget for revamping I’m going to have to resort to one of my favourite ways to propogate plants… taking slips! Learning how […]

A year or so ago I created a series of YouTube video’s and tutorials for a YouTube channel but at the time they never really found there way onto my blog. Recently realised that I should probably share them with you in this space especially as some of the content is quite interesting and might […]

Reward Charts for Kids {video}

I recently revealed myself to be a closet YouTube creator… well, some of you might have uncovered my video series in the past but I had yet to share it on this platform, because, well, it was me in the videos!!! Awkward! (Clearly I’m not a natural YouTube fame seeker – nothing worse than seeing […]

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 […]
