Usually when we talk about mice, I think yuck and will pull out the number of amazing pest control guys who helped us when we had a mice problem (and a newborn and toddler). But these guys!!! Too cute!

The value of devoting time to our children individually is immeasurable. We all get so swept up in our busy lives, and it’s so important to remind our children that amongst all this madness, we still see and hear them. I always think about doing little dates with my girls but with so many family commitments, there isn’t much time. But today Miss M had a play date - the perfect opportunity for me to spend special one-on-one time with Miss C. She’s chose a dinner date. We were both very excited!

We were looking at this poster and I was helping her figure out what it says. When we got it, she said “Well of course life is beautiful!” Little star, you’ll go far!

Ta daaah! Iron Man on his debut trip to school. Thankfully the rain stopped for a moment, and thankfully we live very close to school, like very. 🤖

And in other homework news... I don’t know what these ladies are smiling about, I’m not as happy about Miss C’s homework. Only five years old and she will now have a weekly test on 10 words. Including ‘athlete’. She’s FIVE! World’s gone mad. 🚫

Quality Friday night with Miss M and “Iron Man”. Straight back into the saddle with this week’s homework assignment: make a model or stick puppet of an Iron Man, as discussed in class. Miss M’s ideas are getting bigger and bigger and I’m regretting my obsession with saving interesting boxes for our junk modelling stash. Hey ho. 🤖

London in January = a Christmas graveyard.
I love Christmas and I love real Christmas trees, don’t get me wrong, but it’s so distressing and shameful to see these trees - once adorned and adored - tossed out on the pavement, ready for the rubbish truck. In a quick walk around your neighbourhood, you will see hundreds of trees, all shapes and sizes, all lying on their sides... dumped.
Like the overflowing recycling boxes, spewing wrapping paper and empty boxes, January is a bleak aftermath of a season of excess and gluttony. Why do we do it?

Today my friend told me that she spent Christmas morning delivering food parcels to the elderly. Next Christmas, she wants to involve her kids, to create a different idea of what Christmas means, rather than their current one of ripping open presents, stuffing themselves with food and gawking at the telly. What a wonderful idea! 🌲

I am a yogi ostrich, balancing on eggs.
As we jet back home to London, I am remembering all the great things we’ve done over the last 3 weeks. Family holidays are special times, and South Africa is such a special place. Such a beautiful, diverse country and the people are beautiful and friendly. My heart is aching as we speed further and further away from our family there, but I will draw on my Yoga strengths of being able to hang out upside down when life feels wonky, or to keep my balance on round objects... and that sort of thing.
Namaste 🙏

Like a picture out of a magazine, or an art gallery... I am very envious of our friend’s beautiful wall of art. Exquisite pieces by the 10 year old son and 8 year old daughter of @sharonmundell
I just need my kids to finish a piece of art (and fill the whole page, ie. every single bit of white space) and we’ll be there. A perfect, immaculate house might also help to achieve this look. 🖍

On your marks, gets set... let’s go! 🎉
Imagine if everyone decided to make happiness.
What an exciting way to finish off the year! The girls did their first ever proper hike - a 3.6km walk through the most beautiful forest.
Another memory passed on to my kids for their own memory bank. We used to picnic at Jubilee Creek and do the walk to the swemgat (swimming hole) - a trail that meanders through mossy forests and along the creek. It’s etched in my memory - and whenever I do a meditation and need to visualise a place of natural beauty, this is it. I tried to impress this into my children’s minds but I think I just came across as a raving hippie. But I think we will all remember it for their first ever hike when they didn’t have to be carried (well not for any great amount of distance). It was also so special to redo this walk with my siblings, and the newer members who have joined our family since we last did this together over 20 years ago.

Beautiful beach babies at one of my most favourite places. 💗
Knysna will always hold a special place in my heart - not only because I was born here, but also because we had so many great holidays here when I was growing up. Once again, passing on very special childhood memories.

Christmas in Africa...
Last night we took the girls to Uncle Willy’s party - a magical Christmas party that my parents took us to every year. An amazing evening of pulling out all the stops - a tractor ride to Uncle Willy’s Farm, a tumble in the hay (so to speak), a magic show, a brass band - with a chance for kids to try the instruments and for adults to perform (we were quite something!), a visit from Noddy and friends - who bought ice-cream for everyone - then a tractor arrived with a trailer full of fizzy drinks for everyone (keep the kids awake with sugar), a Christmas carol sing-along with a piano in the hay. And then we had to blow out the lights and sing Father Christmas’s favourite carol, Silent Night and then... oh! Then we heard the sleigh bells... and then he was there! Soon after, a magical fairy flew through the trees and grew into the size of a little girl right before our eyes. And finally, every child got called up to get a present from Santa and magic sweets from the fairy. What an evening!
It’s exactly how I remember it, nothing’s changed in 30 years - but with such a winning formula, there’s no room for improvement!
It’s so special sharing my best childhood memories with my girls. I think I was the most excited person there!
What made it even more special is that my younger brother was there with his beautiful family, out from Germany to enjoy a sunny Christmas. ❤️
