Everyone has a little leopard in them…..


Scarves are by far my most favourite accessory. I endure the cold winter purely to be able to wear scarves.

Someone gave me this scarf yesterday as a thank you gift: Everyone has a little leopard in them!!!!


and then this is my favourite: (at the moment)


and about a 3rd of all my scarves. Love deciding which one to wear.



How kiff is this?


If you’re a foodie and appreciate cooking then the list below will tickle your fancy, blow your hair back, raise your sails and whatever else.

This is what we are learning to cook tonight on the Corden Bleu cooking course. The course begins at 4:30pm and goes on all night. We bring our own wine/drinks and cook the night away. A busy kitchen full of ten friends, no kids, no husbands and a full on Dessert Buffet to round the evening off. Fk me, sounds like bliss…..

Thanks for writing………..


Even though I’m trying to act nonchalantly, I was completely flattered by my favourite blogger http://reluctantmom.wordpress.com/ mentioning me in her blog post today. Why? ‘coz she’s a cool blogger. She makes me laugh. I think I pee-ed in my pants once from laughing. She pisses me off too sometimes. But that’s a story for another day and it’s only happened once and was shortlived. http://reluctantmom.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/no-seriously-what-the-hell-is-in-pritt/ That’s good, I promise you. It’s not great to feel indifferent to someone. Reactions are AWESOME, ‘coz it means you’re ALIVE and kicking. My biggest fear is for someone to find me boring, the Mayor of Dullsville in the County of Predictability.

So I’ll include the Logo Award in my blog post:

and then I’ll mention 7 Random things about myself:

  1. For the first time in my life, my weight is starting to dictate my actions. It’s making me feel insecure and I hate feeling like that and I want to STOP feeling like that.
  2. I want another baby so badly. Another 2-3 babies. But I’m frightened ‘coz of Molls being cerebral palsy.
  3. I dislike rude people that have no manners and behave arrogantly. I want to punch them in the mouth, so their lip swells and blood trickles down their chin. Fckers!
  4. I’m creative. I love art and being around people that make me see things in a different way. People that make me think and stimulate me intellectually.
  5. This blog is a means of practising writing in preparation for the book I’m going to write one day. A story about the life and times of Nonkoliseko Yabo, my Molls’ fabulous and bossy nanny. A truly remarkable woman. I can’t recall any book that documents the history or life of a Xhosa woman growing up in the rural Eastern Cape in the fifties and sixties.
  6. I love laughing.

So, my favourite bloggers I’m nominating are:


The wry and brilliant Countess Kaz (copied and pasted from The Reluctant Mom’s blog.) Sorry, but had to slip that in somewhere.
