    A Seussical Musical at Joburg Theatre

    If you’re looking for something really special to do with the kids this month, do yourself a favour and take them to see this incredible show at the Joburg Theatre! I got to take my younger boys to see it early last month, thanks to a most generous invitation from JoziStyle, and my husband, my boys and I had the best time! The show is everything you expect from a Dr. Seuss show, and the cast, set and crew are all superb! To find out more about this fantastic show and book your tickets, visit the Joburg Theatre website. The show’s still on until 28 April! Performance times are Mondays…

    Need a Valentine’s Plan, Stan?

    We don’t generally make a big fuss about Valentine’s Day but every now and then, it’s nice to plan a little something special, and what better excuse than Valentine’s Day, right?  Well, for us, it’s usually the fact that we celebrate our wedding anniversary on the 8th of February, so there’s that – but who’s counting? Anyway, I know that V-Day is a big one for many folks and that flowers and chocolates simply don’t cut it for the hardcore romantics out there, so I thought I’d share this fabulous offer from The Maslow with you, in case you’re stuck for something special to spoil your love with this coming Thursday.…

    In the navy

    I’m not a big fan of that thing where people pick a word for the year and then make that word and its meaning their focus for the year. I’m more inclined to go with Donnie Darko here, in the sense that focusing on just one particular aspect of your life, or trying to apply a single principle across your whole life is stupid. You can’t just lump everything into one or two categories and completely disregard the rest of the entire spectrum of human thought and emotion. So my word this year is “Navy”. Because it turns out that it’s totally my colour – in the fashion sense –…

    #TheGivingBackPack by Randridge Mall

    When school finished for the year last week, my boys brought home what’s left of their stationery. Now, this was pretty much a first for us, and I noted it with interest because they never used to have anything left at the end of the year in the public school they’d previously attended. And I can tell you that the lists of stationery we were required to purchase and then send to school, from where none of it would ever return home, were extensive. I know what a struggle it can be, after paying school fees and having to buy uniforms every year, to be able to buy all these stationery…

    Home, Sweet Home.

    It’s been such a long time since I last felt inspired to blog – mostly, I think because I found myself left in the dust while the rest of the blogging world grew up around me, embracing all the new technology and practices that are now common, while I struggled to move with the times. There, I said it. But I’ve had a long, long time to observe the scene from inside my little corner and to explore my own thoughts and considerations on the subject of blogging as a whole. When I started my first LiveJournal blog in 2004, it was supposed to be a place where I could pour…
