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 

… 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

“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…”

If I should fall behind, wait for me.

Happy Anniversary to my darling husband! The man with the thighs. @SirNoid made from huge patience, a quick temper to match my own, tremendous dedication, huge love and passion for the girl who has her head in the clouds and her feet on a yellow brick road… sprinkled with purple fairy dust. Not always practical, never conventional and needs the challenge only testosterone provides. I appreciate all you do for us (today I am only writing about you and I… no kids), everything you give me from your heart, the haka on a beach, to helicopter flips over Victoria Falls, … Continue reading If I should fall behind, wait for me.

Midnight train (thoughts) to Georgia (nowhere).

Dear friends and other interesting creatures, Some general news… after midnight… Just go with it. *  Can you believe at the end of June,  I’ve been banting for a year!? Many kilograms and cm’s later,  it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I’ve reached the point where I can say *we* live a low carb lifestyle. I have never thought of it as a diet. Weird how the brain works. * The scale has not been my friend lately but I’ve had a good week. Is better for my mental health not to weigh myself all … Continue reading Midnight train (thoughts) to Georgia (nowhere).
