Kitchen Craft Burger making kit review

There are 2 meals which we have every week, the rest vary as much as possible.   During the week we have a home-made pizza night and Friday is burger night.  The patties are so easy to make and I always freeze at least half.   I don’t use egg in my burger patties as Fjord is allergic to egg and they ...

Milk Frothers review, Salter, Stickocinno and Aerolatte

Now and then you will see me go on a bit of a rant about quality of service and products, both can really get me going.  Over weekends, starting the days with a yummy cappuccino is our regular indulgence.  Last year we went through 3 hand held milk frothers.  The first 2 were the same Salter frother which comes with ...

Monyane Lodge – Awesome weekend away for Cliff’s birthday

Choosing accommodation for Cliff’s birthday weekend away I took a few things into consideration, price and the distance from home are top of the list.  After narrowing down our options I checked reviews and felt comfortable choosing Monyane Lodge.  If I could give an award for the best hospitality ever Des and Elna would win, they were fantastic! Driving to ... Read More »

How did I get out of the habit of going to the library?

I don’t know how it happened but we have not visited the library for a long long time, certainly not this year.  I guess homework is largely to blame, Fjord has a ridiculous amount of homework in Gr 1 and the afternoons fly by.  He has been nagging me to return to the library, yesterday we rushed to get homework ...

5 Sales don’t make a success

  Two weeks ago my children’s picture book ‘Snuffles and the Cloud People‘ was released on the Amazon platform.  I was relieved that the culmination of years of work had finally made it to this point.  I was excited to send this infant child of mine out into the world.  If one swallow doesn’t make a summer, 5 sales certainly ...

I love my e reader – Prestigio PER3274B

Ever since e readers came out I have wanted one.  Since all electronics come down in price after a while I decided to wait before getting one.  This year before my birthday I made some very unsubtle hints to my husband regarding what I wanted. He bought me a Prestigio PER3274B e reader from CNA (pity they don’t have them ... Read More »

The Alexandria Quartet – Lawrence Durrell

It is daunting to write a review about ‘The Alexander Quartet’, it’s rather like photographing a sunset, you have to be there. At the beginning of 2000 I was given a copy of the Waterstone’s top 100 Books of the century list.  At that point I had read 20 something of the books on the list and set a goal ... Read More »

My Russell Hobbs bread maker

The day that my bread maker was unpacked was a great one in more ways than one.  I had my own bun in the oven and labour started the night before this acquisition.  I had wanted a bread maker for a few years but had heard many friends say that it was a white elephant and that they hardly used ...
