Bacon.  The story of a pig. 

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, It started when the x person and I bought a house just after my 18th birthday. I realised I could have a party! Hosting a party carried on into my second marriage, where it became more church and family focussed. Gatherings,  afternoon teas and surprise parties.  I remember my (step)  Dad’s dad,  Oupa Bert saying I was the most gracious hostess ever and what a treat it was to visit. My childrens birthday parties were well attended,  every detail perfectly planned celebrations. As soon as a party was finished,  the birthday boy or girl … Continue reading Bacon.  The story of a pig. 

@SirNoid ♡ @NocturnalWenchy 

Who is older? @SirNoid is older as girls have started calling him “Oom“.  I’m #14forever. You do the math. ♡ How long have you been together?  Since 12th of January 2008. Who is the most sensitive?  I am hyper sensitive and hurt emotionally and physically very easily. I laugh as loudly as I cry. @SirNoid cries at Disney movies and adverts. I’m not sure if that means he is sensitive or appreciate the performing arts. Where do you eat out most as a couple?  Wherever @SirNoid gets invited to join me at a #foodie event, we dining out as a … Continue reading @SirNoid ♡ @NocturnalWenchy 

Happy Anniversary to my Parents.

​I am thinking of two beautiful humans, who are incredibly important to me. Two people who one day took me into their home and gigantic hearts. Regardless of the fact that their DNA does not run through my veins, or that I do not have any of their eyes, or shared childhood memories, I became their dogter, I am one of their own. When I needed a bed, clothes, food, career advice, a shoulder to cry on, a giggle or uncontrollable laughter, a push in the right direction, knowledge or just that look of I love you dearly dogter, they … Continue reading Happy Anniversary to my Parents.

… He believes in me, I don’t know what he sees in me …

… trespassing on a farm outside Clarens in August 2008. We parked our day old 4×4 on the highest, smallest ledge on a koppie, after playing in the stream.

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

From the beginning he was all in. While I analysed the unexpected love, devotion and absolute certainty he possessed about our future (not to mention the chunks of sexy that was coming my way), he was mixing our CD’S and DVD’s which at the time closed my throat with anxiety.

I came into the relationship with a healthy dose of fear, a mountain of debt, a geyser that kept flooding the basement and many children.

By the time he unpacked a reasonable amount of books, I felt more at ease with whatever amount of baggage he came with.

Check your mate

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, Random thoughts: * My anxiety is playing up at the moment and I am not loving it. My default emotion is anxiety so it does not require an event to plague me. It is not fanTy. Forgive me if I am not as chatty as usual. Although … I’ve become really good at hiding these issues. * I love my husband, @SirNoid. He won a big ass TV and put it in our room for me to watch DVD’s. Not that I watch DVD’s all day long but it made me feel special that he … Continue reading Check your mate

For the good times

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, This reminded me of beautiful you,  Victoria . My youngest biological child. The way you use to look at me with wonder when you were little.

I’m sorry for the bad times,  let’s raise a cup of tea to the good times. #theoriginalcast I wish for you never to be afraid of depth.

“What makes the desert beautiful,” said the little prince, “is that somewhere it hides a well…”

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, I have readers, loyal and long suffering readers that have been around 20 years next year (party?), and when I don’t blog, they text, email or whatsapp me messages to ask “Everything ok?” “You ok?”You gotta love it, right? Thank you for knowing me well enough not to phone me. No idea however why I have not received flowers, cupcakes or chocolate…. although to be perfectly honest, if you can deliver low carb meals, snacks or general groceries to my house I will be forever grateful. #Smile Everything is OK. I am permanently completely … Continue reading “What makes the desert beautiful,” said the little prince, “is that somewhere it hides a well…”

The first time ever I saw your face.

My darling chicken little, I miss you tremendously this morning. A sore that runs from my heart to my hands looking for yours and ending in a tear. ♡ #SmileBeautiful.. That is what you taught me. You need to © that shit. ♡ Be kind,  you never know which chapter of their book another person is on. Especially a teenager person…. or an old and frail person like me.  (Stop laughing!) ♡  Go give a random Grade 8 a hug today. ♡ You are funny,  without trying! ♡ You are perfect,  just as you are. (OK,  I’m sorry about that … Continue reading The first time ever I saw your face.
