10 Things To Avoid When Friends Come To Stay.

We had some friends came to visit us this weekend and we learned a few valuable lessons in the process: 1.

Naked Men, Wine and Exercise

Don’t you just hate it when people brag about their weekend because it involved some form of vigorous exercise? You know, they ran a marathon or climbed a mountain,  blah blah blah. “So, what did you do?” they then like to ask, with a smug look. “Oh well I um…spilled toast crumbs in the bed……..watched … Continue reading »

It is time people heard my point of view as believe me, I have issues! Firstly, I was uprooted from my nice sunny home in South Africa … Continue reading »

Watching rugby with a crazy woman…not for the faint hearted!

I can get just a teeny bit over excited when watching rugby. I have been known to scare small children, and my own children argue about who has to sit beside Mum if we go to live matches. Whenever we watch on TV, we mostly have to stay at home as few are keen to have us … Continue reading »

We are moving…..and arguing…and worrying….

But enough about me. What about you?

A friend told me recently that we tend to compare our insides to other people’s outsides, which may seem obvious, but  had not really occurred to me. Given that I am constantly exposing my insides to all and sundry in this blog, I thought it would be so helpful for my self esteem issues if you all show … Continue reading »

What Not to Wear to Meet a Hobbit or the Queen!

I spend way too much time thinking about what I am going to wear.  I dread being overdressed or underdressed in equal measure. There is a refrain that is constantly running through my head: If I am going to the movies: “But what on earth will I wear?” If a friend is having a birthday party: “But what on … Continue reading »

Depression, Heroes and Flatulence

I was not in a very good mood when I began this post. I woke up to read on Twitter that our local radio station in Pretoria was holding a Stop Rape campaign. They were playing a loud beep over the radio every four minutes (drivers were also encouraged to honk their horns) as this is … Continue reading »

My Obedience Training

Our Jack Russell puppy just loves people. Whenever we get visitors, he is convinced they have only come to see him. We are trying to teach him not to launch himself at people’s heads in excitement or lick them to death with his very soggy doggy tongue. We are only having mediocre success. So we decided to … Continue reading »

Children or dogs? The final poop scoop!

Welcome to my first blog for 2013.  This year,  I have decided that instead of all the usual silly stuff on stalking rugby players and sleepy husbands, I  will take on much more serious topics. What better way to start than with the overpopulation of the planet? I have friends who choose not to have children for that and … Continue reading »
