December for the win!

It’s FINALLY December! Yay! 

Summer, Christmas, melons (we love melons) and an excuse to drink champagne.

Our sleepy fishing village transforms during this time as thousands and thousands of South African holiday makers decend onto our beaches and the town changes into a buzzing holiday mecca.  It’s electric, the atmosphere is all sunscreen and seawater, and it makes you feel especially festive.  

I love it.  

How the vibe changes for four weeks and we get overcrowded by tons of sunburned Gautengers who mill around in their boardies and slops in the mall.  You don’t see many locals during this time though, they all vanish into the Christmas holiday abyss, it’s like a whole new town for four weeks over Christmas and New Year!

With that said, we will most likely have a very low key Christmas as my little one is scheduled for his surgery next week and we are expecting at least ten days in hospital, so we will have a bit of an “indoors” summer this year, so thinking of ways to make it special for my family fill my mind.

My business is closed for the festive season and I’m just tidying my work space and getting ready for our hospital visit now, it’s really weird not having any deadlines, but rest is good, so I’m not complaining.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!


Think about what could go right.

Just leaving this here for all of us who like to get stuck in the negative, overwhelming of life.

Think about what could go right, the bible talks about “thinking on things that are lovely, pure and good” 

Philippians 4:4-9. Talks about rejoicing cause the Lord is near. Not to be anxious for anything, but by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God, and the peace that transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and minds.

My favourite product: MyMum Muslins

You guys, I just got myself a pack of MyMum Muslin cloths yesterday and I’m SO stoked with them I decided to tell you all about it today already!

The pack I bought has five square muslins 48 x 48cm the ideal size for a “spoeg lappie”, a bib, a knot comforter, a terry nappy, dummy handle and the list goes on.  The cloth is 100% pakistani cotton (yay not made in China) and is super soft.  I’ve used mine as a bib, a spoeg lappie and a little soft cloth for my son to rest his head on in the heat wave.  They are amazing, versatile and beautiful. Also, the bib was smeared with carrot puree and purple meds and came beautifully clean after a normal wash in the washing machine with no stain remover used. Mama win!
