Se7en’s Fabulous Friday Fun #189

September 23rd, 2013 · 2 Comments

Another Friday Fun post on a Sunday evening… it can’t be helped, after weeks of stormy weather a tepid sun emerged!!! It had us believing that maybe September could be Springtime… and we had to get outdoors. Also we are in the season of fast and furious birthdays… so a load of birthday posts this week…


And after weeks of my email subscribers not receiving posts… it appears that we are back!!! I have missed you all and thank-you so much for stopping by to say there was a problem… I still don’t know what the problem was – all manner of tweaking and adjustments did nothing… and then I left it unattended for days and the situation righted itself… so welcome back to many of our subscribers and I am so sorry that we missed you for awhile…


You haven’t missed an awful lot… we have been surviving winter and that is about all… blogging has been somewhat sporadic as we clutch onto hot-waterbottles and read endless books under the covers with the rain just pelting down … day after day after day… Not just rain… here is a crazy video some local adventurers enjoy some rare Table Mountain Snow for the second time this winter. And I might add at the beginning of the video they are seen to be running at speed up the same mountain path that I barely survived a few weeks ago.


About the only thing we are keeping up with right now is our Word a Day Project… very slow and very steady…

Se7en's Word A Day001

Here are this weeks lovely links…

  1. We have tried heaps of these – South African food in a nutshell… South African Recipe Round up… on Yuppie Chef’s Spatula Magazine.
  2. I absolutely loved these Paper Cone Animals… on the Zing Zing Tree!!! Really, really wish we had thought of them!!!
  3. You all know what a fan I am of Alisa Burke… take a peak at her artistry life, with one of the most adorable babes on earth: Creating with Kid by Alisa Burke
  4. Loved this post of local surfing kids: Kommetjie Surfers – totally love it!!! in BabiekinsMag
  5. Oh would you look at this… I gasped when I saw this loveliness on Style My Child: Chalkboard Paints… you have to look… So many projects leap into my mind!!!
  6. Washi Tape on Daisy Yellow Art… So glad I haven’t found a walk-in store for this…
  7. Handmade Charlotte… has done it again… you have to check out these kiddable spaces… Honestly, this shouldn’t just be for kids… awesomeness in every photo…the coolness continues!!!
  8. And the se7en + 1th link:

  9. A Blast From the Past:

Did You Know???

If you aren’t following Usborne Books then you should be… they are celebrating 40 years Usborne Publishing this year… My all time favourite childhood books were Usborne Books… nothing has changed I still pore over them for hours and my kids do the same… We have so many, many favourites… Anyway, since we love these books so much, we thought our readers would love them too and so youh ave to take a peak at this post… filled with fun links, things to do and of course fabulous prizes for all our UK friends… Remember Remember the 5th of October… Meanwhile I think we should do a post of our all time favourite Usborne books, there are so many!!!

And Did You Know???

Take a breathe mom, but it is less than hundred days until Christmas and for our South African Readers time to pledge Christmas Shoeboxes… Such an easy way to get your Christmas shoeboxes sorted and out to the communities that need them… and there are many ways to get involved… take a peak at their website, see what you need to put into your shoebox, register, fill up your box ad get it to a drop off point by 1 November… It really is that easy!!!

Hope you all have had the most fabulous weekend!!!
