Apparently it's a sign of love, or that we are terrible hunters, that cat's feel the need to bring us presents. I suppose that it could be that they want to play- but seeing as this happens after a play session I do question that possibility. My cats know the routine. Around 8pm they both… Continue reading The definition of feline love
"Marriage means the union of 2 people to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life. " Rhys and Peta planned this day for 2.5 years. They first met in 2009 and ever since there have been sparks. Like all couples, they have had ups and downs, but ultimately, this led to a… Continue reading Mr & Mrs. “Two souls but a single thought. Two hearts that beat as one” John Keats.
I am a little biased. I spent a lot of my school holidays here; a grandma in Umtentweeni and an aunt and uncle in Port Shepston. It was fantastic. No matter how many times I go, I will always want to do the same list of things. So. Here is my recommendation to you to… Continue reading What to do in South Beach, Durban

One day- I said- I would go there. And so the next part of our travels began. The… Continue reading Lake Naverone: Southern Drakensburg
South Africa. Home of the Springboks. Commonly known as the 'Rainbow Nation'. 11 official languages. Nelson Mandela. Wine. The Garden Route. Gold. Kruger National Park. To name a few. I have explored parts of the Western Cape (and was lucky enough to live in Stellenbosch for three years), and I spent many a family holiday… Continue reading A trip through South Africa
Almost three weeks ago, this beautiful white Labrador joined our family. At just 6 weeks old (her mother had stopped feeding her and the other pups), we were passed this little bundle. She was tiny and looked so timid. She cried in the car ride home. We were all a little unprepared for her arrival-… Continue reading Kira
