Collywobbles On A Monday -

is what I’m going to have. Unless I stop sneaking into the kitchen to grab a handful of sun kissed apricots.They’re sweet and tangy with the rosiest cheeks. As I brush the furriness across my lips I must confess I imagine my Grandson’s bottom, those plump, sweet cheeks. The juices run down my fingers and drip off my elbows. I miss that child. Bringing out the Christmas tree a month early doesn’t say “It’s SUMMER” quite like a basket of peaches, aprico...

The Rollercoaster That Was February

The Rollercoaster That Was February -

Forest Gump’s Mother said “life was like a box of chocolates”. February was like that, but the metaphor looked more like the box my sweet sister-in-law presented us with two weeks ago. The box was beautifully crafted and finished off with a pretty red bow, but, alas, had melted into one snotty blob. I thought it funny, she was embarrassed. That’s life. The opened box is still sitting in the pantry cupboard I’m not sure I know what to do with the unfortunate offering...

Shabby Chic Silk Peony Bud in Light Pink ON STEM - 18 inch stem - Artificial Silk Flowers - Bouquet or Floral arrangement - ITEM 0915 by SimplySerraFloral on Etsy

Fabulous Friends, Food And Frivolous Fun -

Was exactly how my weekend started. We’re born into families, some are single parent ones, adopted ones or traditional ones. We can't choose them, friends are the people we pick along the way. People who intrigue and fascinate us, who we have something in common with or it’s the child you sit next to in the classroom, later it's the Mum you meet at your childs' nursery school or at the dentist’s. If you’re lucky, you’ll remain friends forever. Friends inspire us, mo...

Don't Get Me Wrong

Don't Get Me Wrong -

It’s been a busy month since my last scribbling, an exciting time it’s been too. On the day it rained I set off at the appointed hour, very early, to meet them at the airport. It was exciting. Rain. Soft, gentle, penetrating, misty rain. Enough to soak our scorched land. Not enough to break a drought. I was early, traffic was slow I could do it at a good clip. The mountains surrounding me were wondrous, low clouds, saturated colours. Irresistible. A good photo opportunity. Besides...

Running Circles Around Life

Running Circles Around Life -

Today you’ll close this gate; you’ve gone full circle with your journey here. You arrived as a beautiful, sexy, vivacious Englishwoman 38 years ago. Choices have never been yours to make, circumstances dictated your every move. “She took a step and didn't want to take any more, but she did.” ― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief No one knows your mind, none can walk in your shoes yet our hearts are sad, I feel a fist closing around my throat and another clenching my hea...

New Hats And Old Bats - Hiking The Whale Trail -

Hiking the whale trail has been a dream for many years. When the opportunity presented itself we said yes without missing a beat. One of the most picturesque hikes in the Western Cape (possibly, even the world, when the whales are frolicking in the breakers) and probably the most booked up route too. Reservations are hard to obtain and must be done well in advance. Beggars can't be choosers here. We were lucky, 6 months ago, when Mariclaire enquired, there were two vacant spots; either in…

Travels With Tozers Tuscan Tours -

There is nothing amusing about two middle-aged couples in a hire car. You have the driver, co-pilots and backseat drivers. All experienced, experts, who think driving on the “wrong side” of the road is a walk in the park. And then you have the GPS. An unfortunate woman with a posh accent. Who, according to the male passengers knows bugger all. A woman who delights in leading one on a wild goose-chase with the sole intention of getting you lost? Oh! And ours was Italian. Cor blimey it...

The Weakest Link Takes A Hike

The Weakest Link Takes A Hike -

History tells us that contemplation, meditation, soul-searching and philosophising often takes place on mountain tops. Jesus, Mohammed, Moses, Mandela and Ghandi did it. I had a close call, a wake-up call, a bruised ego, a sore bottom and a chipped toenail. Last week we packed our back packs, got togged up in our hiking boots (tackies) and headed off on a hike into the Vogelgat Nature Reserve in Hermanus. The very highest peak, overlooking the lagoon and the coast. On a clear day one would…

Overweight Honey Badger Must Streamline -

The Honey Badger is on a crash diet. No more heavy metals. On the spur of the moment it was decided to weigh the truck and huge was the collective surprise when she came in weighing a few hundred kilogrammes over her recommended weight allowance. “How on earth can that happen?” you may well ask. Trust. We put our faith in the information we gleaned when we purchased the vehicle. Big mistake. As usual hindsight is a perfect science. It’s no use saying “you should’ve...

My Namaqualand Journal - Madeliefie, Pietsnotjie, Katstertjie - -

Every year at about this time a wayward uncle would stop over in his rusty, vintage Kombi, to stock up on fresh supplies, before setting off on his annual pilgrimage into the Namaqualand to paint. My father-in-law would beckon him into his flat, stepping back from the front door, frowning and shaking his head in exasperation. The retired Colonel didn't think being an artist was a real job. The metallic clanging of a shifting spanner on an engine part would signal the last chores being done…
