Square Sky December [1]

Roll on chill time! December is a mainly a holiday month for us here in South Africa, when we have our long summer break. Most businesses shut down around the 15th or 22nd and won't open again until the first or second week of January. ¬†The university where I work finishes tomorrow. The first two … Continue reading Square Sky December [1]

Textured

One Word Sunday brought to use by Travel With Intent is asking for photos inspired by the word 'potty' Here's my interpretation and no, its not the kind that you immediately think of. ¬†And because my son is way past that stage I couldn't find one if I wanted to ūüėČ

NaNoWriMo and absence

I have been absent from my blog. Three months ago I started a 100 day¬†writing challenge. When I started I came up with a bunch of excuses, self-imposed obstacles. Over-thinking it, as usual. I get caught up in the technicalities of writing a good story when I should just write When I think about writing … Continue reading NaNoWriMo and absence

On wish-ing and self-care

We are suffering from a severe drought - the dams that feed our small town are at dangerously low levels. In fact so many areas of South Africa are struggling, Cape Town is possibly the worst at the moment. So we have been wishing for rain (and my contribution for¬†One Word Sunday: Wish). And this … Continue reading On wish-ing and self-care

Count(ing)

This week's prompt for OneWordSunday is "Count". Dabelle and her little dog Oscar went to explore some of the things in my office that could be used for counting. As I work with young learners in maths, my office is a treasure trove!

It has been such a week. On one hand it felt like October would never end, but on the other, it went in a flash. The flexible nature of time, I suppose. I have had no time to write any posts or take photos, even though there are loads of good challenges happening. So, I thought I'd do one post with multiple challenges for this week.

Share your world – 22nd October

In this week's share your world prompts: Italy, colour palettes, beaches and my inspiring son.

Thursday doors – Veltrusy Castle

I don't mind old buildings, in fact, I have a ''thing" for them, especially doors and windows - photographically of course! They have so much character and could tell so many stories if only they were able to talk.

Share Your World: Curious about my ancestors

I started this post like I do every time. I copied in the prompts. I start writing my thoughts under each one. I paused when I read the third one. To be honest, I was not sure it was something I was interested in answering. How on earth would I know the names of people who were alive over 100 years ago? We are not the kind of family that have passed down family stories from generation to generation, so these are not things that I know.

Seven-day‚Äč b&w challenge – all in one post

I've lost my mojo and my phojo!
