Small Victories

Regular readers will have realised that this blog has been quiet again the last few months. There are two reasons for this: I’m not one of those brave people who think flying with toddlers is fun I’ve been focussing on my author career, ploughing all my available time into writing fiction While the second reason will […]

Things Fall Apart

No matter how good your intentions, sometimes even the best laid plans fall apart. Earlier this year I wrote about our travel plans for 2017, and I was particularly excited about our trip to Knysna for the Easter weekend. Well, that never happened.

Memorable Gifts

Last week Sunday, completely out of the blue, we sang a Christmas song in church. Now this caught me so off guard, it being only the beginning of October, that I’m afraid I missed most of the rest of the sermon as my mind wandered through fond memories of past Christmases. In my defence though, […]
