Reasons why I don’t have kids #67

Uuuummmm, because I’m good? Thanks. Another week, another sweet-intentioned ( if a tad tiresome) insistence that’s ‘THERE’S STILL TIME!’, to birth that family I somehow overlooked/forgot to have. It basically started with a simple, throw-away, ‘I’m not a mother, but even I know it’s not good to leave your toddler home alone, so that he […]

The gift of life

I’ve been in love these last four weeks. Deep, pure, unadulterated love. I’m intoxicated. The love I feel for my balcony is stronger, I truly believe, than any love I have felt for a partner in all of my days. I’m obsessed, I’m giddy all the time, I have butterflies when I think about it […]

Sundays, the best day of the week

When I’m not in the gym first thing Sunday morning, bench pressing 20 kilos (!!), I like to relax with a nice, lllooooong lie-in.  So long sometimes it can even last until Monday when I have to go to work.  So technically, this ceases to be a lie-in and is indeed, ‘bedridden’. Sunday lie-ins are marvellous and one […]
