Product reviews

Aim, FalconFire, Play

Fjord (10) and Acacia (7) never showed much interest in toy guns until their aunt gave them each a Disruptor Nerf gun.  They were an instant hit. Fjord very excited to get the most accurate #Nerf gun #falconfire A post shared by Sula (@sulaskimmingstones) on Nov 14, 2017 at 3:40am PST When a FalconFire was delivered to me I knew ...

Spurt Swimming Gear is awesome

A few hours before the children’s swimming lesson on Monday an exciting delivery arrived from Spurt Swimming Gear.  Perfect timing!  Their existing caps and goggles were overdue for replacement.  I can’t remember where the old goggles came from but Fjord’s had badly scratched black lenses which he struggled to see through and Acacia’s had a single strap which didn’t hold ...

Slime Baff and Gelli Baff, an awesome kids gift

When I received a package of Slime Baff and Gelli Baff from Zimpli kids to review, Fjord couldn’t wait to try them out.  If you think this stuff is just for little kids you’re wrong, Fjord is 10 and I couldn’t get him out of the bath either time.  I wish that I’d timed it, but I’m certain that on ...

Four Awesome South African finds, land of milk, honey and olives

Good value, good service and quality products give me the warm fuzzies.  I’ll share my 4 favourite businesses dealt with this week. On our return from Durban we always have to stop at the Wine Cellar just outside Rosetta in the Midlands, oddly enough not always for wine but always for flavoured coffee beans (they grind them if you wish) ...

My week in pictures 20 – 27 November 2016

Our chicks are about 2 months old now.  They are so tame and sweet the Black Australorp Angel looks like a hen and Lucky looks like it may become a rooster.  Does anyone know a bit about chickens and chicks who can confirm this?  We’re pretty much just going by the size of the comb.  Actually we were told that ...

My week in pictures 5/11 – 12/11 2016

Ahh after the lightning strike my week in pics took a down turn but here’s the latest. Not only will the chickens have a lovely new home soon but it was very special to watch Cliff and Fjord working together on this.  So much gained.  Watch this space for the finished product. The source of marital unimpressedness.  I was so ... Read More »

My week in Pictures 8 – 14 Oct

Whew I’m bad, so little time on Skimming Stones, so much time in the kitchen but next week may be a bit better and there will be at least one recipe and hopefully the final post about our Namaqua trip. We have been getting out too little.  On Sunday afternoon took a drive to Marievale bird sanctuary in Nigel.  Next ... Read More »

PediaSure can fill gaps in my children’s nutrition

Five servings of fruit and veg a day is an ideal theory and one which I constantly strive to meet.  but it is near impossible to achieve.  Cereal is the children’s standard start to the day.  For lunch I’m doing well if cucumber or a fruit is on the plate.  Supper generally includes 2 veg but the tally remains below ...

CAMERA REVIEW – CANON SX610 HS – I’M IN LOVE

Three years ago for my birthday Cliff gave me a Canon Power Shot A810, this had a fault while still under warranty and was replaced with a Canon Power Shot A1400 which was pretty much identical.  Unfortunately the clip on the battery compartment broke.  This month for my birthday Cliff gave me the Canon Power Shot SX610 HS, which is ...

Near miraculous results using OsteoEze Gold

Being pregnant at ages 38 and 42, I don’ think that I did my body many favours dishing out calcium to grow the skeletal structures of 2 small humans.  For a total of 3 years the mineral generosity was perpetuated through breastfeeding.  I don’t know if there’s a connection but I have early osteoporosis and had 3 separate joint issues. ...
