Dear friends and interesting creatures,
My name is Wenchy. No surname. Think Cher… Madonna. They don’t need last names, why should I? Diva.
Naturally, my parents did not look down at their gorgeous first born daughter and say: “Ounooi, let’s call her WENCH but with a Y?” Bless.
I’ve been writing for 20 years (yes, I started my site when you still coded a font!) under the very windswept and exotic name “Wenchy“.
Just for the record… #Selfies are nothing new children. It’s like sex. Every generation claims to have discovered a new angle! Pun intended. We just called just self-photography.
I’m am the keeper of the picket fence of many colours. I’m married (serial bride I am) to @SirNoid, and Mom to many – in a very blended family with an #OriginalCast.
We use the term “Mom” very lightly with hushed tones. I am not a bake cookies from scratch kinda mom, I detest school events and my kids and I attend gay pride and political gatherings.
There is nothing you can tell me about marriage, divorce, parenting, planning a murder, apple orchards, step-parenting, x-people, maintenance (from both sides of the coin), puberty, noise, sex, reading, random Easter hat making, breast feeding, laughter, sports, school functions, exam nerves, chronic illness, birthday parties, boyfriends / girlfriends, psychologist visits, glitter, different personalities forced to play happy family, miscarriage, grieving, joy, varied parenting styles, empty nest syndrome – not even about elopement! I’ve done it.
My latest adventure includes writing for an international print publication with a digital footprint, Anytime Anywhere Magazine. Oh, do keep up! … all done with #Wenchytude
I am asked often when my book will be published. Seriously! Yes, there is a book lurking inside me which I am finding both exciting and excessively cautious to write. Well, that’s probably because I have lived a life worth writing about. Every day has not been tea and cake you know. Somebody had a knife.
Anyone who takes one look at my African hips will realise I am not a fashion Blogger. 🙂 I blog about most topics and emotions. Adventures, thoughts and reviews alike.
I do mingle with the best of the best, however. ♡ Probably because my Oupa Mike loved to show off a little!
I enjoy foodie events (always look at the cocktail menu first) , the performing arts (HUGE theatre fan), books (I own a library), movies (on the big screen), beauty products, spa treatments, getting out of town and often do reviews on these platforms.
Social Media came knocking… I answered Strawberry Daiquiri in hand. We have been in love ever since.
I detest speaking on the phone, so for a prompt response, WhatsApp me.
I wish you enough,
