Guest Post : Two instead of three.
Grief. No one ever explains how it’s really going to feel. How it’s really going to affect you. How it’s going to tear your insides apart. How surreal it’s going to feel. How heavy it is on your chest that you can’t catch your breath. But when it happens, you know. And no one else… Continue reading

Guest Blog: Sometimes we all lie…
I’m no expert, not on life or work or being a woman or being a mother, but what I do know, is that sometimes we all lie… When people ask us “how are you?”, almost always the answer is “Great thanks, or good thanks, or amazing, or awesome”. When was the last time that someone… Continue reading
Guest Blog: Dr Victor – Ma Se Kind
Met die August wind waai ek by ons apteek in. Miskien meer ‘n aptekie… So met die inwaai neem ek waar dat ek alleen in die apteek is. Geen apteker of assistent nie… en geen ander siekes nie. Wie daar wel is, is Dr Victor en “Wie se kind is die?” My voete trap sommer… Continue reading
