Week 43: Life of a Mom – I smell bacon!

“Brrrrrng”, the alarm chimes for the third time. I slowly switch it off being careful not to open my eyes just yet; my eyes tend to wake up the rest of my body, and I still want it to sleep a little longer. I smell bacon, mom must be making breakfast. Oh…wait…I AM THE MOM! Must be the neighbours. I […]

Week 38: The Rice Krispie Revolt

The other day my friend called me and said: “Hey do you know that there is a new Rice Krispies recipe? It now has a vanilla flavour and corn!” He didn’t say this with the enthusiasm you may have assigned to this quote.

Week 32: What is this? A reflection of the Moon? A Portal? Platform 9 3/4

My father looked up and saw this light appear, get bigger and bigger and then disappear. He managed to get one good picture of it. What do you think it is? Perhaps someone […]

Week 9: Listen to your body!

I went to Zumba Class today. No, it’s not a new year’s resolution… those don’t always last. I did Zumba last year before I had a small operation. I realised after going tonight, that I really must have not been doing well. It was so hard and I was so tired last year. We often push ourselves so much that […]
