The thought of living the country lifestyle has always appealed to me. Rolling lawns of lush green grass, waking up to the chirping of birds, fetching the morning eggs and long walks around the farm… it honestly seems like the most incredible lifestyle. The only thing that snaps me out of this dream is the […]Read more "The appeal of country living with Springvale…"
A short drive from home, the beach, the sun, comfortable homely environment, air-conditioned rooms, a comfortable bed, yummy food, close to fun activities and the perfect setting for family fun… this sums up our week long stay at The Estuary Hotel & Spa in Port Edward last month.

Holding her close I could hear her […]Read more "My 30th Birthday Celebration"

Man, I love sugar! I have a sweet tooth of note! Cakes, bakes and sugar in my coffee are my weakness. As much as I have tried giving up sugar (because we all know how bad sugar is for us) I just cannot! As a mom I am conscious about how much sugar Maddie consumes.

I cannot tell you how many conversations I have had with fellow Durban moms about the lack of a super-duper playground that not only caters to both parents and children alike but ticks all the boxes in terms of location, features, safety and affordability.
