Photo Gallery: Building the Shed (2010-10-30) | Dad bought us an awesome present for the new house in the form of a garden shed, the perfect protected spot to store my tools, lawnmower and whatever other crap I don't want lying around the house! Of course, these things arrive flat-packed, so there ... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
How to make Cottage Pie | My baby girl is expected early January. When this time arrives Olifant Pootjies is going to be exhausted and sore, so I've taken it upon myself that I will be running the household for the first month or so while mommy and baby bond, live ... (My Life | Recipes)
Antenatal Onslaught | The time for Jessica to join us in this great big world is starting to quicken its step now, and as a result we now find ourselves having already enrolled in and attended our first antenatal classes! On recommendation of Andy, we got in contact with ... (My Life)
The Guest House Bedroom | The one thing I am probably the most relieved about after moving all our furniture into the new house is without a doubt the fact that our brilliant, beautiful queen-sized bed actually fits in our rather small bedroom - but leaving enough space that I ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: Buying Compactum and Pram (2010-10-23) | Look! We bought a pram and compactum for Jessica! (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Stealing My Work: Ashihara Online's Fraudulent Portfolio Listing | I'm taken aback, really I am. Going through some of Google's nifty stats for my various sites the other morning, I came across the fact that my Funakoshi Karate International South Africa website was being linked to by South African web design company, Ashihara Online. Now ... (General Nonsense | My Life)
Cat in the Cot | I haven't gotten around to posting many pictures of our new home, or even discussing it that much, but I thought it imperative that I share this particular snapshot with you before it gets lost in the clutter that makes up my desktop. Although Chantelle and ... (My Life)
Come Dine with Us Again | Last Friday saw the second leg of our local little Come Dine with Me competition (well competition is unfair considering everyone is seemingly to chicken to allow voting), following on the first one held last month which I unfortunately missed out on due to illness, ... (My Life)
Employee of the Month | Nice. One of the things Simon introduced at Touchwork after starting a couple of months ago as the Development Manager was the concept of the Employee of the Month award, basically a recognition of one singled out office dweller (generally of the Dev team) who ... (My Life)
Digger be Dead | The Cape golden mole. An extremely cute little fellow as far as I'm concerned, soft, streamlined, and oh so cuddly from a distance. However, it is entirely possible that I am one of the few people to actually like the little guy, considering the fact ... (My Life)
Cat Shot: The Hand Basin | Cats. We all know they are fond of lying in some rather strange and wonderful places. So let us take Achilles as an example this morning. My lovable white and ginger boy seems to have developed an absolute love for... hand basins. It started at Nagua Bay ... (My Life)
Craig Goes to the Doctor | I don't do doctors. Much to Chantelle's chagrin of course. I really only drag myself there if I absolutely, absolutely have to - and even then that seldom happens! Of course this does mean that I don't yet have a house doctor here in Gordon's ... (My Life)
The lone Getz, an instant tip-off that I was working from home... How to Spot Someone working from Home | Just before we moved into the new place at Country Mews, I grabbed this shot of Olympus staring forlornly out the front door, confused as crap as to what was happening all around him and why our flat was suddenly more than half empty. However, looking ... (My Life)
Gina G. Getz’s First Check-up | So my beloved little 1.4 Gina G. Getz has managed to clock up to her 15,000 kilometre mark already, after owning her for just over six months now, meaning she is travelling in excess of 2,000 kilometres per month! This does of course mean that my ... (My Life)
Gi Goodness | Pleasingly, after the great debacle of the splitting of my one and only karate gi pants at the worst possible financial moment, I've managed to secure a replacement gi in a pretty short space of time - and at an absolute bargain price to boot! Although ... (Martial Arts | My Life)
And We're Still Entertaining | So we've been in our new home for only a week and still the entertaining continues. It was a good weekend, plenty of work on the house, in the garden, sprinkled with loads of sorting out of junk and just a touch of some Blur ... (My Life)
Burning Tyres and an Oil Spill... | The scenic drive through to Muizenberg from Gordon's Bay, Baden-Powell Drive (or the coastal road for those of you who prefer that title), turned out not to be particularly friendly to me last Friday, forcing me to travel both to AND from work in Westlake ... (My Life)
Entertaining at Country Mews | Well, we've been settled in our new home here at Country Mews for less than a week, and already we've entertained twice, the first being a nice Sunday morning visit from Dean, Zania and our uber cute god-child Zandea (with mother-in-law in tow), who stopped ...
