Generally lately, I treat this space like a diary, something to look back on. There are you precious few who take interest in the little fish bowl which I swim in. You gift me with your time reading what I write. You sometimes reach out with a comment, and that means a lot to me. Some know the part of ... Read More »

Week ending 5 Sept 2021

Well that week ended with a headache from hell, but at least it’s gone today. Not much went on last week, Mum is still with us which is lovely. Our music teacher gave us blueberries so we gave him some blueberry muffins. Found a good recipe on Allrecipes. Funny thing is that I’ve always found blueberries to be a bit ... Read More »

A quote from our audio book to start last weeks record. “Despite rumour, Death isn’t cruel – merely terribly, terribly good at his job.”― Terry Pratchett, Sourcery Hmm it’s already Tuesday but yesterday was a wee bit busy. Mum arrived from Durbs for her first visit this year which is awfully late, but lovely to have her with us none ... Read More »

Week ending 22 August 2021

I think a quote from Sorcery, our current Terry Pratchett audio book is a good start. “The truth isn’t easily pinned to a page.

Windy week ending 15 Aug 2021

Our week ending 8 Aug 2021, minimal news is good news

Already 2 days past the end of the week but it’s been quiet. Fjord turned 14 last week, he had a good day. We gave him a harmonica which he is already getting the hang of. My eldest son Heath visited Jo’burg and it was lovely to spend yesterday and part of Saturday with him. We also gave Fjord a ... Read More »

Week ending 1 Aug 2021

New decision is to try to record at least 1 thing that made me happy on each day of the week. Acacia got the first 2 Wizards of Once books for her birthday but she gobbled them up in a day or 3 On Monday the children went back to school. One thing that we missed was listening to our ...

Acacia is 11 our week ending 25 July 2021

Oh joy, at last after what feels like an eternity the children are back at school today. They have fallen behind on learning again and really miss the school environment. Relief all round. It felt so good to get through the housework quickly while listening to a Dark Horse podcast on Spotify. I find their content interesting and thought provoking, ... Read More »
