Traditions

We have a Sunday morning breakfast tradition, we always have pancakes. I was the one who made them, before my preferred pan went wonky. After that, Jerall took over. I wonder when Keiden will take a turn.

Our tradition of Sunday morning pancakes is so ingrained in us, that even when we're away from home it happens. On our PE trip ah-he made them for us. It's a small thing that makes our family, family.

We don't have many others. Our Christmas Eve one is to get lots of yummy nibbles, and watch what we call Christmas movies. We also have some movies that we watching during the month.

And then there's bedtime story time. It's part routine, and part tradition. And it's one we all enjoy a lot.

Oh, just remembered our birthday one. For their birthdays, and birthday month the person celebrating gets to pick where we're eating out, if we do that.

What traditions have you built into your family?

Tis the season

To be filled with wants. And it's so easy to get lost in that feeling, of wanting, lusting, needing. We then forget what this time of year reminds us of.

And no, I'm not talking religious stuff here. I'm talking about taking stock of what we have, of being grateful. It's hard I know to not get caught up in the want of it all, but we should try.

So while we're spending time trying to find just the right way to express to those we love how much we love them, let's try to remember to be glad for to have them too.

Five for Friday


An upended tree we found in the nature reserve on our Sunday walk.

Someone couldn't resist all the rocks and stones.

Post walk coffee, at Schoon De Companje (or Oude Bank for the locals). I love the wooden saucers.

Some quirky decor at Schoon.


My scooby snakcs, I haven't had these since our trip to Canada. The aunt we stayed with was her on holiday, and she brought me these :).

What I'm currently reading.

I'm still processing what came out of therapy. Thus, I don't have many words. So be distracted by my current reading list.









I dip in and out of each as the right mood hits. Am almost done with Furiously Happy as it's making me laugh when I need it.

What are you reading? Are you a one book at a time person, or more?

Sometimes you just need to sit in the sun

Yesterday, was a pretty great day in parts. Jerall's auntie Jan, who we stayed with when we had our Toronto holiday is in SA for a visit. She and the mil came down to Cape Town on Monday.

Yesterday, they, us, my sil and her family all had a picnic lunch at Warwick Wine Estate. Our niece M, and Keiden had such a blast running around, and playing in the fountains. The grown-ups sat under the shade, just being it.

The gourmet picnic they offer is pricey, but well worth it. And it's a lot of good quality foods. Jerall, Keiden and I shared one, and it was more than enough - even with our eat all the food kid. Drinks are extra. Also, remember to book. And that the experience is so much more than the picnic. Sometimes, just sitting with no rush to finish at the venue you're at makes it all just perfect.

And it turns out it was just what I needed after an intense morning at therapy. All the feelings and things come out when I go to a session tired. More on that another time.

If you're stay-cationing in Cape Town and the surrounds, Warwick is a lovely spot to just sit in the sun.

This might just be one of my odder ideas

On Friday, I had the strangest thought. I wondered what if I blogged every day for a year. Then panic and fear set in. Why would I want to do that to myself? Could I even pull it off? Am I just being swayed by the fact that my NaBloWriMo seems to be going well?

So yes, just when it seems that everyone else is pulling away from blogging. I'm deciding to dive-in in the deep end, which is all kinds of ridiculous given I can't swim.

I've chatted to some friends about it, and I figure the best way to do this is in smaller pieces. I know I can do a month of it. So I'll be taking it a month at a time. And I need to remember to be kind to myself while doing this. That means scheduling posts ahead when I have the urge to write everything, and to not be hard on myself if I miss a day due to sickness. I am hoping though that the scheduling ahead, when I have the write all the things urge will help avoid those moments.

I've realised that what I will get from doing this, is a sense of accomplishment - finishing a big-ish year long project would be good for me to know that I can do it. Also, much as I call this my space, and say I should write for myself, I think writing everyday for a year will help me feel more as if this is my space where I write for myself.

The thing with blogging is that although it is self driven you are aware of an implied audience. And as such I know that I unknowingly started not writing about all my interests. Which is all kinds of ridiculous. This way, with the expectation of putting up something everyday I won't be able to shy away from all that makes me me.

It should translate into more gaming talk, and as my diploma course starts next year probably some more academic discourse. Guys, I have so many thoughts and ideas on gender, identity and the performance/performative nature bouncing around in my head, in e-mails, chats and notes that I have no idea why it isn't here. So here it will be.

What do you think?

An attitude of gratitiude

I'm working on my attitude of gratitude, so this I think will become a regular thing for Sundays. And probably on those days when I just need to be more aware of what I have instead of focusing on what I don't have.

I'm grateful for Jerall. Especially, because we had some ugh moments recently...we're past those. But nothing like a bad moment to remind just how good things normally are.

Keiden. Yes, he is pushing so many buttons, but those love yous and hugs help. Not to forget that I'm glad that he feels safe, secure and loved enough to push his boundaries without fear of losing us. I am so glad that he feels secure in our love for him.

Friends. Ones who get my particular brand of quirk. Renewing relationships with those from before, and those who are close enough for random tea visits.

The work that I do have. My client is fortunately someone who doesn't care too much when the work happens, just as long as it happens. It is such a great thing to have when working from home with a toddler.

That Keiden got into our preferred play school. That we can send him to it.

Twitter, it helps me not be surrounded in an echo chamber that confirms my confirmation bias.

That I'm open to looking at different points of views.

Amazing online retailers that help make my life easier.

Opportunities coming my way.

Coffee, the lifeblood of parents.
--------------------
Any moments of gratitude for you recently? How do you maintain an attitude of gratitude?

Five for Friday

My brown thumbs and I, now have three new plants to look after. We have lemon grass, chocolate mint and lavender. Keiden is enjoying watering them. And it helps me feel like we're not wasting water, because we put his watering can in the shower to catch some water.

The water crisis is heavy on my mind. We're doing as much as we can think of to be careful with our water use, but any and all tips are most welcome.

We recently received the information pack for school for Keiden. And I must say going through it all has been a great reminder of why we were so excited about the school in the first pace. They strongly discourage party packs on birthdays, fr one. They're all about learning through play, and fostering independence. And parents have homework, reading to our little every day :D.

I'm considering carrying on with blogging every day for as long as I can manage it. What do you think?

And what are your thoughts about me talking about my rpg characters? We're currently playing this, with some friends...and I need to talk about my character, her love-love interest, and the difficulties when your team doesn't work as a team. (If you have any rpg questions, go check out Abigail's series)

Thursday, 19 November 2015

Today, I was

That mom. You know, the one you see walking along with the crying toddler.

As Keiden and I were making our way to the library he wanted to carry the book bag. Not a problem, but all he had to do was say please when asking for the bag. He refused to. So I didn't give him the bag. He carried on whining, moaning and crying all the way to the library.

It was not pleasant.

I could feel people staring. The "What is she doing?" looks, and people actually told him to stop crying 0_o. I just really, really wanted to tell them to make like a kite and fly away. That this is what happens when you're trying to teach your kid manners. That he's pushing boundaries now. I didn't say anything, just carried on.

Parenting is hard.

Scattered thoughts

I'm a bit scattered today, we had a poor nights sleep. K was having a bad night. I read some interesting things on love recently. Check them out here, and here.
I'm utterly moved by this twitter account. Every massive tragedy needs this. It is so humanizing, it reminds us that it was people who died. Not numbers, but people. I'm retweeting it, and sharing it here, as I hope it will remind folks to always chose kindness. Each person who dies in a tragedy is someone to someone, they are the ripple in the webs others have woven.

We need each other. We need to honour those who have been lost. And we need to remember that we are all humans, with quirks and foibles, with love, with passions, with people who we make the world a brighter place for. Choose love, choose hope, be love, be hope.

I've shared this video before, but it just feels like today is a good day to share it again. You made it.

An author I've been enjoying lately

Rainbow Rowell, is a recent-ish find. I discovered her work last year, I read Fangirl, and Eleanor & Park. And recently, I discovered Attachments - her first book. I'm looking forward to getting to read Carry On. Carry On is a stand alone book about the series that Cath from Fangirl is fangirling about. I'm hoping I get to read it soon, I think it'll be a joyous romp. Yes, I said that :p


Be sure to give her a look. And let me know what authors you've been enjoying lately.

Ps. I may write a review of Attachments soon-ish. Also tomorrow is post 500!! There'll be something special in it for you :)

A few links to some interesting things

The Establishment, is an amazing recent find. They have some great thought provoking essays, and some light hearted fun things too. Just look at the about page.

I've mentioned it before, but really if you're even vaguely interested in the X-Men, check out Rachel and Miles X-Plain the X-Men.

Into It with Elle Collins, is great to listen to just for how her guests geek out over topics. Elle and her guest/s chat about something they're seriously into. The newest episode is about Bring It On, only the greatest cheerleader movie ever.like.seriously.ever.

And, Secret Convergence on Infinite Podcasts, is a cross-over event on some podcasts. Thanks to it, I now have some more podcasts to check out.

A look at Kids Book Club

It's probably not much of a surprise, but we really, really love books in our family. And because of that I figured why not give this Kids Book Club thing a try, when the opportunity to do so arrived.

At R145 a month, for two books for your kid, two magazines for you, and a lovely, lovely bag for your little to do all the things they do with bags, it is a great deal. Sadly, though the first two deliveries left me underwhelmed.

To be fair, we go to the library every week, and Keiden has tons of books - and a really great collection of Priddy books he got as a gift. Priddy books are amazing, and you get one of those in the delivery, a big win. But because of those it wasn't really anything new for us, besides the bags, which Keiden loves - he is always packing it and saying bye-bye.

It turns out though those first two deliveries were just a bunch of teething problems. Because today's delivery was great. The magazine selection has improved - full disclosure they are a month old, but who has time to read the current ones or buy them? - and the Priddy book is this great treasure hunt book. Keiden really enjoyed the page with food, no surprise there ;)

If you're looking for some way to get new books for you kid, with a little treat for yourself this is a great way to do so.

----------------
This is not a paid for post, but I did receive the delivery to try it out.

Getting to know me

Mandy, tagged me in this meme doing the rounds. I'll tag some folks at the end of it.

Are you named after someone? 
Nope, but I was supposed to be Casey. Due to a spelling error I'm Cassey, just not spelt in the traditional was of Cassie.

When was the last time you cried? 
On Monday, while watching Downton Abbey.

Do you have kids? 
One, huggable, snuggable little monkey, Keiden.

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I think so. I like to think that I'm good at this friendship business, and generally pretty friendly.

Do you have a guilty pleasure? 
I'm working on not applying guilt to enjoying what I enjoy, just because it isn't for everyone else. It's hard not having what others think spoil what I enjoy, but it is my quest. So the short answer would be no. I like what I like.

Do you like handwriting? 
Most of the time. I love taking notes, and writing letters, but don't always get to do so.

What is your favorite cereal? 
We don't really do cereal, so I suppose oats with fruit toppings.

What is the first thing you notice about people? 
If they acknowledge those who greet them. For my, the most important step in taking to not being a douche is to acknowledge everyone who acknowledge you. Look that homeless person in the eye who took the time to greet you.

What color are your eyes? 
Brown.

Scary movies or happy endings? 
Happy endings, scary movies mean tons of anxiety for me.

Favorite TV show? 
Ummm I love tv, not as much as I love books, but close enough. So I tend to rewatch BSG, Hart of Dixie, Greys Anatomy, and Ouran High School Host Club (anime seriously counts as tv).

Summer or winter? 
I was a summer person, and then I was pregnant during summer. So winter all the way.

Hugs or kisses? 
Hugs, all the hugs.

What’s the furthest you’ve been from home? 
On holiday, Toronto, Canada. To live, for a bit, Den Haag, The Netherlands.

Do you have special talents? 
Ummm I'm friendly, and remember birthdays?

Right, I choose you (pikacachu ;p) Abigail, Briget, Cat, MeeA, and Megan.

Five for today

I was so excited about this show. And if you're looking for gritty, it works. I was hoping for easy story, and something that showcased how dancers are the ultimate athletes. 

Despite the title, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, is a delight of a show. It has filled the musical comedy gap, that I didn't realise I had. The songs are amazing, it is just a great show.

Dear Keiden

This weekend past tannie Lize got married. And at the reception you did something that made me both happy and sad. I know mommy's are silly sometimes.

At the venue there was an amazing play area, and two lovely ladies to keep on eye on all the kiddies. You were very happy to play there, and then the thing that made me a little sad was that you didn't mind when daddy and I went away.

Daddy and I were very happy to see that you were ok without us. It was great to see this, it let us know that come January when you go to school you'll be ok.

You were a big fan of Elize, so much so that when we went inside, and you and daddy went out again for a walk, you just ran away from him to her 0_o.

Love you much,
Mommy

Ps. Make sure you pick friends who don't just remind you to drink water, but actually give you a glass  of it to drink.

Meet my friend in my computer: Abigail from The Triangular Room

Abigail, is a massive Pathfinder, The Sims and Pathfinder nerd. What she doesn't know about The Sims isn't worth knowing. She is a gaming geek, loves to colour, read, and collect all the mini figs. Always ready with some advice for Sims problems, and her current series on Pathfinder for beginners is a great ready for anyone just starting to play. 


Her unbridled full enjoyment of what she loves is something we all need. She inspires me to write more about gaming here. Hopefully, I'll do so :p.
------------------------------------------
Hi there, this is my friend Abigail. Let's chat


How did we meet?
I believe we met on Twitter. I must admit I don't remember the specifics, but I suspect you came into my timeline via Tally or Noelle. I know I had previously come across your hubby's Pathfinder stuff, so I remember it being one of those small world moments when I figured out the connection between you and him :) We have yet to meet in person, but I hope to change that one day!

What is blogging to you?
This is actually something I've been thinking about a lot lately. I enjoy writing and putting my thoughts down on (virtual) paper, and having my own blog allows me to share whatever thoughts I want, without some editor looking over my shoulder and telling me what does or doesn't belong on their site. The fact that people enjoy reading some of what I write is a really nice bonus. It does mean my blog covers some rather disparate topics, but it works for me at the moment.

Current Favourite Series: At the moment I'm really enjoying Star Wars Rebels. For a show that's more or less aimed at kids, it contains tons of little details that make my inner Star Wars geek squee. The fact that the show reminds me of Firefly and has top notch voice acting is a nice bonus!

Current Favourite Book: The Lorien Legacies (I Am Number Four) series by Pittacus Lore has me eagerly awaiting every new book to find out what happens next. Another great book I read recently was Stephen King's Doctor Sleep (awesome sequel to The Shining), as well as On Writing, which is a great read, even though I usually don't like non-fiction.


Current Favourite Game: Besides the obvious choices of The Sims and Pathfinder RPG, I've really been enjoying Disney Infinity 3.0 - it's the best Star Wars game that's been released for about a decade. For non-digital games, one of my current favourite board games is Takenoko.

Warrior, rogue or mage?
Tough one. I think mage for ultimate power and flexiblity.

Collecting figs or colouring in? 
As much as I enjoy art and colouring, I'm a packrat at heart, so collecting would probably win this one.

Food or sights when travelling?
Definitely sights. I'm such a fussy eater that the thought of eating meals where I don't know exactly what is in it is rather terrifying!

What does a day need to be good for you?
A good day for me is one where I don't have to get up too early, there are no demands being made of my time, so I can just chill at home in my pajamas all day. Some yummy food and a good book are always nice as well!

Thursday, 5 November 2015

Meet my friend in my computer: Liezel from Hello August

Liezel, is so crafty, and into gorgeous stuff. She loves throwing parties and dreaming up ways of making spaces beautiful, it's a great thing to behold, and chat to her about. For those of us who aren't crafty, knowing someone who is, and has an eye for beautiful things is a great find.

She is brave, she went off on a teach English overseas adventure, friendly, sparkly (yes, this can be used to describe someone) and just all round lovely.
---------------------------------------
Hi there, this is my friend Liezel. Let's chat.


How did we meet?
We 'met' on Twitter bonding over motherhood tweets. I eventually got to meet you in real life at a blogger meet up.

What is blogging to you?
I've always dreamed about being a writer/journalist but I dont actually have the skills to cut it in the industry, so to me blogging is a way to live my dream. Having this creative outlet is what saves me somedays.

Current favourite series, book and game
Gosh there are so many series I love at the moment. Grey's Anatomy is still a favourite after all this time. I love Modern Family, Vampire Diaries, The Good Wife and Friends reruns. I miss Dexter and Breaking Bad every day. I love Gillian Flynn books and read Pride & Prejudice and Mansfield Park almost every year.

Your dream job?
Working at a Fashion or Travel Magazine. Being an interior decorator. Mainly doing Baby & kids rooms.

You and Ben 15 years from now, mommy and son adventure, where, when and how? 
When my husband was in high school the family rented a sailboat and sailed Greece & Turkey stopping at all the little towns to explore. Doing this with a teenage Ben is our dream.

                                     Coffee or tea?
Coffee all day long!

Food or sights when travelling
Ooh I love sight seeing and exploring, but my brain is always on food so I will have to go with food.

What does a day need to be good for you?
Family, sun and good food. I love that at this age we can just hang with my parents drinking G&T's and having a good laugh.

Wednesday, 4 November 2015

Meet my friend in my computer: Maz from Caffeine and Fairydust

Maz, is someone I wish I could be like. She is supremely confident, creative, stylish and very clearly knows what she wants and how to get there. She is passionate about using eco friendly products, and is in fact one of the reasons why we've started the slow process of switching to more earth friendly products.
------------------------------------
Hi there, this is my friend Maz. Let's chat

How did we meet?
On Twitter if I remember correctly? :D

What is blogging to you?
Cheap therapy... It is my voice in a world where I am not often heard.

Current favourite series, book and game

Gilmore Girls was, is and will always be my absolute favourite series! My favourite book is The Covenant by Naomi Ragen and my favourite game is Boulders Gate! I know it is old, but it is so awesome!

Designs that move you
Few things move my tar black soul... haha. My daughter's drawings ♥

Style something you're born with or something you need to work on?

In general, I believe it is something you need to work on. You are influenced by your parents, your heritage, the people that surround you, your financial circumstances, etc. etc. etc. Anyone can be stylish if they want to be.

Coffee or tea?
Coffee!

Food or sights when travelling
Sights, with snacks in hand!

What does a day need to be good for you?
Sunshine, happy vibes and my gorgeous family ♥

Tuesday, 3 November 2015

Meet my friend in my computer: Fazila from Chasing Dreams

Fazila, is in one word DETERMINED. Yes, I meant for it to be all caps. She goes for what she wants and keeps at it till it's done. I love, love her stick-to-it-ness. Her attitude is inspiring, seriously guys I really just want to gush about her, but words fail me.

She is lovely, principled, hard working, speaks her mind and just all round awesome-sauce. And in something I consider amazing, has found a way to balance family, work and what she wants out of life.
---------------------------------------
Hi there, this is my friend Fazila. Let's chat.

How did we meet?
At the Mommy blogger CT get together on 9 May 2015. I remember you grabbed me and hugged me and I was like whaaaaa’ and then I just went with it. (It's because I had just read her story about her mom, and wanted to give her all the hugs, I did ask first)

What is blogging to you?
A way to spread knowledge and connect with people. Sometimes an introspective outlet.

Current favourite series, book and game. 
Haven't read since I birthed. But one of my favourite recent book series is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larrson and then there's Angelfall (also a series) by Susan Ee. TV Series: Scrubs is my all time favourite – I watch season 1 till 8 every year!!! I like Awkward (don’t be judging ) and Parks and Rec. I love comedy series (obvi) because life is already full of human drama RIIIIIGHT

Favourite "it's amazing how much this works" exercise step/routine? 
Brent's bootcamp at Constantia Virgin Active on a Saturday morning. He BREAKS my body every week no matter what (and I workout everyday). He is the ONLY instructor who can kill my body every single class. Its amazing. This week every muscle was aching so bad for THREE DAYS AFTER his class and get this – we only used body weight. He is effing magical.

Dream home gym/exercise space 
On the grass in the yard….I'm basically LIVING MY HOME GYM DREAM

Coffee or tea? 
Neither: boiling water with lemon. I have even started (much to my husband’s annoyance) requesting this at restaurants.

Food or sights when travelling
Food: I like trying different vegetarian dishes. Im not vegan or anything. But I just like to see how creative different places are with their veg dishes. Sights: ocean, forest, outdoors, fresh air. That’s what I look for

What does a day need to be good for you?
It has taken me a long time to realise, a good day does not depend on events, how I look, or when things go or do not go according to plan. A good day depends on my attitude and my faith in my Creator that it has been ordained for me thus, even what appears to be negative on the surface includes a positive lesson for me. No matter what, have a positive attitude towards each day. To help me fall asleep at night I think about all the things I should be grateful for. Things I never ever dreamed possible 13 years ago are now a reality for me. And for that I am forever grateful. How could the day not be good then?

Monday, 2 November 2015

Meet my friend in my computer: Megan from Mama Zombie Mumbles

Megan, is someone I see as so proudly herself, although she might disagree. She throws herself into anything she wants to do wholeheartedly . Is extremely passionate about things that seem completely unrelated, but in her world it all makes sense - My Little Pony, nails and animals being an example of it.

She is great to chat to, and has a not so hidden cheerleader side ;).
----------------------------------------
Hi there, this is my friend Megan. Let's chat.

How did we meet?
We met via twitter

What is blogging to you?
It started as a way to vent my feelings, but now it's more of a way to share whatever projects I am busy with

Current favourite series, book and game
I am watching a bunch of stuff right now, my favourite sitcom is hands down Modern Family. Game of Thrones is one of my loves, but I always end up watching Grey's Anatomy when I have down time (or I am home sick). Mr Robot BLEW my mind recently and I have been enjoying Lost Girl too (cheesy, easy watching). Book wise, I am busy reading the LAST Pratchett, Shepherd's Crown (SOB) and as for gaming, not much of that happening now, so it's mostly smartphone games like 2048.


A restore pony station or nail station?
Most of my pony restoring happens in the kitchen as I need boiling water and a sink and I spend a lot more time doing my nails than I do restoring Ponies, so I would choose a nail station. In a perfect world it would have a couple of shelves to display my ponies and other collectibles and would have to have really good lighting and lots of storage space. I need more of a mani cave than a station haha.

Free handing, stamping or stickers?
Stamping ALL the way! I have to make an actual effort to NOT stamp every mani I do now!

Coffee or tea?
I should say coffee because I love the stuff, but I was recently introduced to flavoured rooibos, so I think I may be developing a tea obsession.

Food or sights when travelling
Oh, that's a tough one. I love food, but I also love sight seeing... I love nothing more than exploring a museum or a landmark. History fascinates me, so any chance I have to learn more, I'll jump on it. Once I've seen the sights though, lead me to the good food!

What does a day need to be good for you?
I'm pretty easy to please, so as long as I have coffee in the morning, leave the house on time and don't forget to put shoes on, I'm pretty happy. If I get left in peace to work while listening to some good music, even better! A weekend that involves the beach, friends, braai and sangria is my ideal :)
Mostly these days, any day that is peaceful is good. My days of entertaining drama llamas are long gone.

Plans, plans and more plans

I know a fair number of folks who are doing NaNoWriMo. It's a great way for people to push their creative juices, and get something done. No, I'm not taking party, I don't have a novel wanting to get out. But I will be writing a post for every day of this month.

It'll be my NaBloWriMo as MeeA calls it :) This way not only will I make Quest 500 before December, but I'll also have a way to make sure I put aside time to do this, and not fall into the I don't feel like it trap.

Another plan is to get back on the no sugar wagon, I've fallen off it so badly. One moment of weakness turned into weeks of have all the sugar :(. Along with that I'm going to do the best I can to finally do 30 days of yoga. The pilates class from last week, was a great push to do this.

Many plans I know, but I have to get them going. Hopefully it'll all stick better this time and become firm habits.

About Me

Me in a nutshell: I game, read, tweet, enjoy good food, have bouts of red pen rage and I'm a coffee snob.
