    Hi. I have recently discovered your blog and I think this calendar is a wonderful idea! In fact I am loving all of your entries and every day I read a few of the old posts to ‘catch up’ – I dont want to miss any! I also live in Cape Town and am a mom, wife and Christian, but apart from that our lives are so very different (eg I only have 2 kids who were both born via c/section in hospital, I struggled with breastfeeding and hated it, my kids have always slept in their own rooms etc) – probably why I am enjoying your blog so much is it is giving me a snippet of what its like to live in someone else’s shoes. You have inspired me in many ways in a short period of time, and this week I did a new craft activity with my kids (crafts not being my greatest strength), threw out a bag of toys that they like but dont love, and have taught them to take their own plates to the dishwasher! Thanks for sharing your great ideas with us!

    Hay Jo, How nice to meet you, thanks so much for stopping by!!! Isn’t it great in a world made up of so many differences there are always places where we overlap!!! I am so glad our blog has inspired you!!!! Take what you enjoy and leave the rest!!! Lots of love and have a great week!!!

    I so love your calendars. Some great links that I’m going to follow. I threw some mouldy cheese out yesterday, but I think if I act now I should be able to organise some for the 9th. Also, I’ll make double quantities of cookies for missing out on Cookie day. (Any excuse!)

    Hi Cheryl… We were too busy for cookie day too but I think we may be revisiting!!! I am so trying to get the calendars out by the 1st… but they always take longer than I think they will… Lots of love, hope you guys have a fun week!!!
