I’ve been toying with putting Ameli in dance classes for a while now. She’s always asking for it, and she loved dancing around the living room. I did ballet for a while myself, as a child, and I think it’s a great form of exercise, perfect for little girls (and boys). A few days ago…

When people say ‘emergency planning’ we all tend to think about natural disasters and catastrophes but there are more emergencies in life than those. Not to downplay the effects of an earthquake, flood or tsunami, which affect the lives of the many, but sometime emergencies are small, affecting only a few, but those are no…

114/365 – Happy Birthday Daddy The girls scribbled a birthday card for their daddy, and I wrote their message out word for word, including the home that he would ‘sleep good’ for his birthday, and do whatever he wanted the next day. Lovely. At least we had a gorgeous Vegan chocolate cake, which is so good,…

Dear Aviya, I am so grateful to have you as my second child. If you had been my first, Ameli would have been a huge shock to my system.

For the last two years, I have had the worst luck with my garden. What pregnancy didn’t take out of me, sickness and a newborn did, and then, to top it off it rained so much last year that even my mint died. Do you have any idea how hard it is to kill mint?…

I have this overwhelming awareness that these days are few. Every time one of my girls does something that grabs my attention, I realise that these days are few, so very, very few in the grand scheme of things. It’s making me quite emotional.

How long will it be, till you no longer reach for my hand? How long until dinosaurs and fairies no longer roam and you can face everything you fear on your own?

To say it’s taking us a while to settle in would be an understatement. Honestly, I have no idea why it’s been so rough, but the to do list in getting the house organised alone is quite intimidating. The girls are only just starting to sleep well again, and we’re kind of over the horrible…
To say it’s taking us a while to settle in would be an understatement. Honestly, I have no idea why it’s been so rough, but the to do list in getting the house organised alone is quite intimidating. The girls are only just starting to sleep well again, and we’re kind of over the horrible bug that’s haunted us for almost two weeks. It’s been a rough transition back to real life. At least we’re slowly starting to get out and about and meet up with people and get back into the swing of things, so that’s good. But the girls are here, with me, and they are full of smiles and beauty and joy. That’s what matters, in the end.
