New addition to our family …


Since the loss of our family much loved dog , Sasha we were waiting to get a new puppy.After the much anticipated wait the gorgeous new one arrived.
Early Friday morning , I got a message from Karmani telling me puppy was on her way to me from Pretoria and would be here Saturday morning.I was so excited and nervous as I have never had a puppy of my own to look after.

I had ages ago thought of a name and knew I wanted the initial Z Zak if its a boy and Zara if its a girl.My brother and I picked her up on Saturday afternoon .She was ever so good in the trip home.

Zara is ten weeks old and like me is born in April. She apparently likes RED which I am sure I will change to pink lol. She is too precious and is so well behaved.

My friends all refer to my new pup as training for motherhood. Yesterday I went shopping for Zara and bought her an animal print bed , puppy treats and toys.

Zara is settling into her new home and is loving the Durban temperature, she loves her new bed .I have strict times for feeding her and playing with her so she doesnt get spoilt and cry for me when I go back to work.

When I see her little face and her tail wagging it makes my heart melt .


Our criminal society


Two Saturdays ago, Mum left to the UK and while we was not home our house was broken into.

This was such a shocking and terrifying experience. We have an alarm system which picked them up .It seems criminals are getting very clever and have new methods of breaking in.Its such an invasion of your privacy knowing someone has touched all your stuff and gone through your personal belongings.

From what it seems these robbers were looking for jewellery and money, we are not sure what was taken and will only know when mum returns.

Crime has become rife in all areas doesnt matter if you live in posh area or not.It angers me that people think its ok to steal . We work so hard to buy what we want only for it to be taken by someone who doesnt know the meaning of that item. Most of our possessions have a story behind them , a history and a monetary value cannot be placed on it.

So to protect ourselves , our loved one and our possessions we now have to live like prisoners. Have guard dogs and hitech security systems.Life has become such that we are constantly looking over our shoulders and constantly looking doors. At times I feel like a prison warden constantly checking and locking.

We really need to relook at our goverments crime and punishment protocol. The goverment needs to find ways to punish these criminals.In some parts of the world very harsh punishments are administered to thiefs thus preventing crime from happening.

I dont want to live like a prisoner in my own home and be afraid to go out. Hopefully someday the crime decreases and people will live in peace, harmony and not be paranoid.

Simple Pleasures



Last Wednesday my amazing cousin Karmani surprised me with a one day visit. I havent seen Karms since last Decemeber so its been pretty long.We chat on a regular basis via Twitter and Whatsapp keeping uptodate with the happenings of our lives .Karms is Dad and my late Dad are 1st cousins so that makes are 2nd cousins. But regardless we are super close and her lovely brother Whelan and I share our birthday.

Karmani and I share a very special relationship we party together, bargain hunters and we dream and share our visions with each other.

So on Wednesday afternoon we sat in the kitchen and had a major long catch up session on our work , our vision for our future, my blogging, her DJ career, our planned holiday abroad as well as recalling past memories.It was such a feel good session and much needed for my soul. As Karmani often says our grandkids are going to listen to our stories and think wow are grandmothers are truly LEGENDARY 🙂

I am truly blessed to have such an inspirational cousin in my life who has believed in my blogging and forsees so much more in my future. Thank you Karmani for been so awesome, loving and a true LEGEND .
