Ryan's Kirstenbosch Birthday Picnic | Despite Friday being a bit of a write off thanks to a horrible stomach bug that saw me throw up at work, go home early, and then crash into bed and sleep for pretty much the whole evening, Saturday was 300 hundred times better thanks ... (My Life)
Jessica going for the Camera and playing with a Ball | I wanted to film Jessica's excited reaction that she usually gives when given this little plastic toy ball with chocolate beans rattling inside, but instead she turned the tables on me and went straight for the camera, intrigued by the lens. Needles to say, it ... (Jessica | My Life)
Photo Gallery: Hathersage Farm Market Outing (2012-01-29) | Busy scoping out possible markets for Chantelle to market her Cookies & Cakes venture at, we headed out to Hathersage Farm Market on what turned out to be the most perfect of days in terms of weather. And of course on sunny days like these, ... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Photo Gallery: Ryan's Kirstenbosch Birthday Picnic (2012-01-28) | In celebration of Ryan's 29th birthday, he invited the Lotter Clan out to join him on a picnic in the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. As it turned out, he couldn't have asked for a better day - or prepared a better outing! :) (My Life | Photo Gallery)
A Very Jessie Update | So, we are now into our second week of Jessica back at Baby Steps day care, after having enjoyed a straight two week stay with Oupa and Ouma back in Bellville while Chantelle and I returned to work. Pleasingly enough, Jessica gave us no problems ... (Jessica | My Life)
Forgotten Lunch | I had to laugh on Friday, thanks to this tale of forgotten lunches. Simon walked into the office and then remembered that he had left his lunch behind in the car. That's okay though, the car is parked just outside the door. Tristan walked into the office ... (My Life)
Another Single Parent Weekend successfully Navigated | Chantelle was back on duty for this weekend past, and for a change, Jessica and I stayed planted firmly in Gordon's Bay for the duration of the weekend! Not that we didn't achieve much mind you... just look at this list! :) In terms of entertainment ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: Jessica eating Letters in the Bath (2012-01-23) | Jessica absolutely loves her bath time, and it certainly is never a mission to get her to agree to being dunked into the water, though this time around it would seem she took a gastronomic fancy to the sponge letters which litter her bath! :) (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Back to My Karate | Last Wednesday saw me make my return to Funakoshi karate, for my first training session of 2012, after having enjoyed a nice month and bit holiday break from all the punching, kicking and shifting around. The break had been good, but I could feel it ... (My Life)
Jessica's First Swim in the Sea | The great thing of living here in Gordon's Bay is of course being so close to the sea. Which of course means that it is no real surprise that Jessica finally got to enjoy her first proper swim in the sea at last - even ... (Jessica | My Life)
Photo Gallery: Strand Duck Pond Excursion (2012-01-22) | During her split on a working Saturday afternoon, Chantelle joined Jessie and me as we headed off for an epic duck and Egyptian geese feeding session over at the Strand duck pond, marking the first ever time that either Chantelle or Jessie had ever been ... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Photo Gallery: Jessica Sleeping on the Job (2012-01-21) | As a growing baby, Jessica is allowed as many naps as she wants - even if there is a cat underfoot! :) (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Jessica is back at Last!! (Oh, and a Weekend Report) | Yay, finally Jessica is back with us, and everything is back to normal, routine and all! :) With creché opening on Monday, this was the last week of Jessica staying with Oupa and Ouma, and to be honest, it was becoming quite tough without my little ... (My Life)
Things I'm not Fond of (and thus hope Jessie doesn't get into): Tattoos | Before we start, a disclaimer. We are all human beings, meaning that we are entitled to have our own opinions. And just because I have an opinion about something, doesn't mean that you have to agree with it. Nor do I have to agree with ... (My Life)
Yuppiechef Premium Kitchen Tools is pretty Awesome | Disappointingly, the electronic kitchen scale I had bought for Chantelle for Christmas from Game didn't work right out of the box. However, as it turned out, this was quite a good thing because a) it didn't look as nice as it did in the picture ... (General Nonsense | My Life)
The Wagners, Braai and Jessica Weekend | Having not seen Jessica for a whole week now was simply far too much, so for this weekend past I hatched a plan which saw me spend time with her both Saturday and Sunday, thereby scratching the itch and making it a little easier to ... (My Life)
Monkey Town with Jessica | I tried really hard to get out and about with Jessica as much as possible over my December vacation period, and one of the trips we managed to go out on was to Monkey Town, literally down the (National) road from us, and a place ... (Jessica | My Life)
Little Mini Disasters | Sigh, so many little negative things to start the year off with, so I may as well list them here, why not? The first not so lekker thing is of course the creché being closed for a month and only reopening in the middle of January, ... (My Life)
News Year's Weekend 2011/2012 | Ugh, it had to eventually come to an end, but of Tuesday 3rd of January 2012, I find myself firmly back behind the keyboard, banging out fresh new SurveyThumb code for my wage masters over at Touchwork. In truth, I thoroughly enjoyed my two weeks ... (My Life)
Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012 | So the annual retrospective is upon us, and to be honest, 2011 proved not to be a very memorable in terms of personal growth year, completely unlike its predecessor 2010 which was filled to the brim with big and exciting stuff. 2011 was dominated by one ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: Feeding the Ducks at Sonstraal Dam (2012-01-01) | I've always loved heading over to Sonstraal Dam in Eversdal, armed with bread in hand and on a mission to feed the variety of ducks and geese that inhabit the dam. Now I get to pass on this tradition to my daughter, and seeing as ... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
