On those days

On the days were your friends fight and argue with you
The in between feelings where you are sad and blue
On days where your homework feels a little too much
With no time for tasks or guitar practice or such
On days where your hair just does not play along
And the words you sing are false in every song
On days where your heart has been broken by a boy
And you are crying and sad and have no joy
On days where you are moody and cross for no reason
And not matter the weather you just hate the season

Remember I’m here…
To teach you to deal with your friends and your foes
And listen to your worries and woes
To remind you there is enough time in your day
for study and practice and to play
To listen to your songs whatever the tune
And dance around like a silly baboon
To remind you that hearts are sometimes broken
And to never lash out at others with harsh words spoken
To teach you that to be grumpy is sometimes okay
and tell you taking it out on others is not the way

Above all just remember this
I’m always here for a cuddle or a kiss
Or a tickle or a squeeze or a hug
Or to tuck you into bed all snug

Love you girls xxxx
Mommy

What would you change about your body??

I came across this video on Facebook. I so wish that all I wanted was a mermaid tail …sigh. I struggle with so many body issues on a daily basis and never really leave my house feeling completely comforable in my skin. I know how women are judged and I always have that looming thought in mind. It wasn’t always like this, and it has nothing to do with me getting older as I look mostly the same other than some wrinkles. I have some blemishes that causes me to cringe when i look in the mirror, and everytime someone looks at me I know that they see it, and they judge because it is so ugly. I don’t really know when things went pear shaped, I don’t really know where I lost the feeling of being comfortable in my own skin… I hope one day it returns and that when that day comes maybe all i would want is a mermaid tail. But for now, if I had the money I would have gone for laser and who knows what all

Was It As Good For You?

Peanut Butter Chocolate & Caramel Cheesecake

So often chocolate is equated with sex. We say things like “mmmm, that was/is better than sex”, or “orgasmic”. Sometimes the desserts we eat are named after sex, such as Sex In A Pan, or Better Than Sex Cake. However, we never equate sex to chocolate. When was the last time you culminated coitus and thought, ” Wow, that was like the best whoppie pie ever!” I’m sure, for some, a whoopie pie is more satisfying at times. I always thought this comparison was fascinating. But what’s even more fascinating is that I’ve never met a man who would agree any dessert comes close to sex.

Makes you wonder.

Today’s post is all about expelling the shame and guilt we…

Big Grinn

You know that feeling when you just want to sit and grin from ear to ear…and then you realise that you are actually doing it and the guy in the car next to you is clearly thinking you must be “special” because you are most probably looking like a dufus. Yip, that was the start to my day :-)

I do feel cheerfully happy this morning. The weather in Cape Town looks a little glum but not even that can take the spring out of my step. Both my girls received awards at school yesterday for culture and reflecting on everything they do and have done, I feel so proud. They are beautiful, intelligent and talented. What more can a mother ask for. I absolutely loved school…nerd I know, but I really did. The simplicity of it was blissful. The friends were sometimes forgettable, sometimes not. The boys were all still skinny and cute. Most of the teachers were fun and playfully strict. School was great.

The girls started at a new schol this year due to our move, but they are blossoming. It is just such a great feeling knowing that I don’t have to worry about them too much. They are diligent  and really give me so many reasons to be proud.

Sigh, so yeah…there is that dorky grin again… I just can’t help myself.

Hop, skip.. Tra-la-laa

What a month! It has wizzed by. I’m completely exhausted with work and life taking it’s toll. In a great way though. It’s been busy but rewarding at the same time. I love a good challenge. Feeling overwhelmed with tasks I think I can’t get through just to prove to myself I could.  Work is amazing, and my personal life even more amazing.

There’s so many exciting things in the near future.  I yet again feel overwhelmed with all the planning required, but I’m also so excited that I want to burst.  Sigh…. Happy happy
