Foibly foughts…

~~~ What if you are currently on a ‘break’ and tragedy strikes..? What then? We always think we have more time. Family’s have feuds.. friendships get splintered and previously loved ones are forgotten. Then tragedy strikes or the toll of time rolls in and then there is no more time to say “You were important to me, I loved you.” As people, we will differ in opinions, we will evolve as individuals and sometimes, we will outgrow. But does that mean  parting  ways must be done with anger and confusion? So if there is someone in your life.. someone that has been important, someone that is now lost. Take this moment to say: ” Thank you for being a part of me, I have fond memories of our times together and even though our time is...

~~~ Wobbly Wordless Wednesday As I sit here, I have a few things flying through my mind. Most of it is stupid stuff but one or two I think may need more attention than I am currently giving it. For now the stupid thoughts are winning. Those silly thoughts surrounding chores, hot feet and whats for dinner tonight permeate my frontal cortex like ants on candy… Instead I should try and focus on how I am going deal with this abscess aka reduce facial swelling before Saturday AND start the legwork to finding a venue for my boys 21st Birthday! Meh.. fukkit. Let’s just laugh together and regroup later. xoxo Share This:Share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click...

Aliens – why are we looking?

Aliens – why are we looking?

~~~ Why are we looking for alien life? What the heck do we think will happen when we find them? I do not doubt for one single minute that there is intelligent alien life out there, but what happens when they discover we exist? What then? Do we really think this is a GOOD THING? As humans we can barely tolerate each other, and any and all differences between us -  have been the cause for war and hatred for as long as there have been days. And this is attributed to HUMAN NATURE. It is apparently our HUMAN NATURE to hate and destroy all that is different/unknown/feared. What about ALIEN NATURE? What makes you think these aliens are any different? They may be just as intolerant of others as we are of ourselves. They may just decide that we will make cool door...

Coffee & Chocolate – the start

Coffee & Chocolate – the start

~~~ KZN Coffee & Chocolate Expo 2015 This was the first of hopefully many such events to come to Durban. I understand that some people were disappointed with the first event and here are my thoughts on it. The actual event was extremely well publicised and very well set out, but for reasons that baffle the shit out of me, there were nowhere near enough relevant vendors there to represent. I wish there were more vendors and demonstrations in general. <– At least a poledancing-chocolatefountainlicking-coffeebean or two? The vendors that were there, did a fabulous job of display and information, I had laughs and discovered quite a bit from each and every one of them. The pot cleaning stand was a bad idea… the smell made me naar. They were all kind...

April #NailAnarchy Challenge Post – this vs that

April #NailAnarchy Challenge Post – this vs that

~~~ So this month was versus or opposites .. I had MILLIONS of ideas… most of which were too ambitious for me. I did try though by making decals but after a few attempts,  I was still not able to get a decal to behave as it seems to wrinkle when I topcoat it.  I shall keep trying. After a while I simplified my task when this idea came to me while munching on fruit. This is what I went with:  Oranges VS Apples Tutty Fruity baby! Polish I Used:- Essence – Holo Jewels CHiC – Tapuz 312 Tip Top  – Jitterbug Lime Seche Vite (Topcoat) NailCandi – Manicure Sealer + UV Light (for le Fimo) Also used FIMO fruit which my husband expertly sliced for me (I am not allowed near super glues and Sharp Objects) . Now that you have seen an amateur...

Pocket Geeks …

Pocket Geeks …

~~~ Are Geeks truly valued or just convenient? I saw someone mention the other day on social media that the best way to set up a beautiful blog/website is to invite over a techie friend for coffee and get them to set it up for you. This offended me Do you invite friends over for coffee to wash your dirty car instead of going to a carwash? Or for that matter, would you scan your friendlist in search of dentists and ask them over ‘to take a look’ in the midst of tea? No, of course not! That would be insulting, Right? I have no issue helping out my friends, at all. In fact I am always very keen to help and normally offer before they ask. Mostly because, I love what I do but most importantly,  love helping others. The thing is – I honestly believe...

Explaining Nice…

Explaining Nice…

~~~ Last night was such a proud mommy moment for me. Parents evening is mostly such a drag of musical chairs and queues followed by confused educator trying to remember who your kid is. I understand.. there are so many of them and there is you don’t really want your kid to be obvious as those are normally the troublemakers.   Last night, as we went from educator to educator, I was so proud of my pumpkin that I almost squished him in front of everyone. (He would kill me, by the way) His grades are average, some above average but the general feedback is: “What an amazingly pleasant young man” “Pleasure to teach” “One of the Top Ten students in the school with regards to manners” “Friendly, polite and well...
