That's Mr Meleshe to you!

When i was younger. A lot younger. I used to idiolise my dad. He was big. And strong. And in the Army. Try beat that. He would come home from work and change, and i would sneak into his room and put on his shoes and hat thing, and walk around the house like the boss.

Which i'd like to think i was.. ha ha... really..

b.t.w i still idiolize my dad..

So nice is she, that she printed this beautiful picture and framed it for me. and then gave it to me for my birthday. Rather late than never. and rather something so beautiful any time of the year.... it is going into my first born's room. when i have a first born. many many years from now.

I love you jess the poo.

Bobotie success!

Craigy got his British passport today. So in the vain to prove that South Africa has some of it's own treasures (in an effort to convince him that he should not leave me here all alone) i decided to cook him some Bobotie. It was great.

I believe it did the trick.

Ha! take that England! enjoy your mash potatoes and pork sausages!


For all the non-South African's; Bobotie is: a South African dish consisting of spiced minced meat baked with an egg-based topping. The recipe probably originates from the Dutch East India Company colonies in Batavia, with the name derived from the Indonesian Bobotok. It is also made with curry powder leaving it with a slight "tang".

Thanks Wikipedia!

Into the Fu-Cha!

So tri-annually there is an interesting phenomenon that passes through the magalies mountains. A little party called Fu-Cha. Almost like the Woodstock of minimal and trance music. A place where you can lose yourself. And dance.

And dance.

I like. it is fun.

Your daily dose of inspiration

I recieved a really inspirational email, and although all the points were great, i chose a couple that really "hit home" to share with you:

- Life is too short to waste time hating anyone
- Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about
- Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful
- Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger
- Burn candles, use the nice sheets, wear fany lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today
is special
- Over prepare, then go with the flow.
- Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
- The most important sex organ is the brain.
- Frame every so-called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?'
- What other people think of you is none of your business
- However good or bad the situation, it will change
- Your children only get one childhood
- Envy is a wase of time. You already have all you need
- No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up

The adventures of (the other) Eat it n Run

So if you haven't already gathered, i am madly in love with my two little boys. Luke Skywalker (Eat it) and Maximillian the terrorist (aka Run). Maxi is my little toy pom, and he is a naughty little shit, but friendly as hell and the most beautiful dog in the world. Lukie looks like Falcor from the never ending story, and he is a little maltese (although that is debatable), pure white. He is the most beautiful soul in the world (and so heart-breakingly pretty)

I love them so much, that i probably blog about them more than anything else.

I think I should change the name of my blog to:

"The adventures of (the other) Eat it and Run"

PS: i put (the other) in brackets, because my best friend Jess and i adopoted the names, and we also call ourselves Eat and Run.... who also have adventures.


The pictures below are of maxi with Mr Kouala the teddy, and of Lukie lying behind the little fence in our garden, both of them taken this morning.

Lazy Sunday

Today holds potential.

I feel like sharing the happenings in number 5 Blueberry this Sunday morning.

Oh Ouma, i love you

Because you are so special, and because you are so beautiful; a little bit of the wonderful world wide web should be dedicated to the memoriness of you beautiful Ouma.

Reminder: You are going to Ibiza. Reminder: You are going to Ibiza

So yes. I am going to Ibiza. What you say? Ibiza? Well yes. Ibiza. YAY!

And just so that i don't forget that i will be leaving in 37 days and 20 hours, Craigy put a reminder on our shopping-list chalk board.

Oh and Reminder: don't forget Pilates on Thursday.


Hurry up and enjoy

So I walked into Exclusive Books on Saturday, and was drawn to the following book.

Read the back, and there was no doubt that i had to have it.

Oprah always says, doubt means don't, but in this case, the universe was screaming YES.

What the book is meant to teach me, i will have to hurry up and find out. First got to finish my current book. (which has gotten a heck of a lot better towards the end)

What the book means, and what i learn remains to be seen.

She's gone lippy...

I love lips. Anything Lips. stick. gloss. Ice. Cream. Smakers. enhancements. pictures.

I found some Awsome lips..

You sleep funny

Maxi, you sleep funny.

Would you like to see.... Look... you are a funny bunny.

He can climb mountains

So Luke is SO not getting cold this winter. We bought him a little Wind-Breaker from the Vet shop. It is made out of actual mountain climbing material. It keeps him so warm, and plus he looks so SNAZY! Craig said this morning when he took it off Lukie's body was so warm, even though they spent the night and morning in the cold.

Oh and Max didn't get one. You can imagine why... But he did get an awsome little toy. Mr Kuala-Bear Man. It makes three different sounds. And he is Maxi's new best friend. After Luke.

Daddy's day

My sister and I always have trouble trying to decide what to buy my dad for fathers day.

Every time you ask him, it's always the same response; 'a hug and a kiss'. So i always end up buying him lots and lots of chocolate. Like A LOT of chocolate.

Which can't be too good for his cholestoral (Spelling?). So this year i am buying a little bit of chocolate, but in addition i decided to update the picture he has of my sister and I in his office (i think we were about 6 and 8 years old in that photo). So i bought this beautiful frame, and my sister came over today for a photo shoot, and i am putting this picture inside the frame to give to him.

LOVE it.

Healthy eating

I am trying to get healthy and SKINNY for Ibiza, which is now in 40 days and 40 nights! WOW! And so i am on a mission to eat as healthy as possible. My lunch today was:
1 left over baguette from Mugg n Bean
1 Avo
1 Orange

Is was healthy, and yummy. Just the way it should be!
