Replacing Our Front Door Security Gate Lock (aka How to Remove Pop Rivets) | I enjoy the small, self-contained DIY jobs around the house, and my toolbox was called into action a couple of weeks ago, when inexplicably the lock on our metal front door security gate seized, leaving us with no way of opening the gate, meaning no ... (My Life)
Another Market Weekend | Two weekends ago was my first official full market selling experience, which admittedly went pretty damn well, with Chantelle's Cookies & Cakes experiencing a bumper day of sales at the Willowbridge Food Market. Of course, two weekends ago also happened to be both my birthday ... (My Life)
Cape Town Traffic | Wow, it's much colder these mornings now that I'm not sporting my fluffy, rugged beard anymore. Chantelle's hinting and the fact that Jessica was in real danger of forgetting her daddy's handsome face prompted an impromptu shave-off on Sunday evening, leaving me a far colder ... (My Life)
Jessica Lotter Crawling on All Fours Outdoors | I can't remember if I ever mentioned it at all, but Jessica did eventually drop her leopard crawl style in order to replace it with a more conventional and clamber-friendly all fours crawling style. In order to prove this statement to those who have previously seen ... (Jessica | My Life)
A Normal Weekend for a Change | What a pleasant weekend this past weekend was, what with it being our first "normal" weekend in literally months! Our new schedule of doing three markets in a month, two of those being handled by Cheryl and myself on Chantelle's work weekends, meant that this ... (My Life)
Jessica Opening Doors with Daddy | Jessica is at the stage where she seems to like nothing better than opening and closing doors. You name it, if it has hinges then you will find her happily sitting in a corner, opening and closing that poor bugger as if there is no ... (Jessica | My Life)
Assisted Walking of Jessica | Little Jess is getting better and better with each passing day in terms of the walking action, and although she's not confident enough to try it one-handed just yet, assisted walking with two hands being held certainly holds no challenge for my little toothy monster! ... (Jessica | My Life)
A Karate Hiatus for Craig | Unfortunately for me, I had foreseen the start of what would eventually be sure to come, and as it so happens, last week I was finally forced to send out this particular e-mail to my Gordon's Bay Funakoshi Karate International South Africa sensei, Birgitt Smit: Hi ... (Martial Arts | My Life | Personal Musings)
Jessica Lotter Toddler Babbling - Captured on Camera! | I know, I know, it seems like far too many video posts are making their way on the blog as of late. However, seeing as yesterday marked my 32nd birthday, I kind of feel that I can pretty much do whatever I want to on ... (Jessica | My Life)
Manning the Stall, the Avengers and the Hillcrest Berry Orchards | Wow, for a change I got to pretty much spend the entirety of last weekend in Chantelle's company, something which probably hasn't happened in literally months! :) After working from home on Friday (official office move was still in progress, meaning I was getting more done ... (My Life)
Putting on my Sales Cap for Chantelle's Cookies and Cakes | So Chantelle's Chantelle's Cookies & Cakes baking business venture has been running for more than a couple of months now, and pleasingly it is going quite well, especially after we discovered the world of food markets through which to sell her produce. (No more wasted ... (My Life | Personal Musings)
32 Reached! | So hey, I woke up this morning and realized that I'm 32 now. Seriously old in other words, and completely befuddled as to how time appears to be racing past me quicker than a baby grabbing at a bottle of milk. Needless to say, looking after ... (My Life | Personal Musings)
Trying to Capture Jessica Lotter talking on Camera | Before we eventually managed to capture Jessica happily babbling away on camera (thus proving that she should one day talk), we went through a lot of capture attempts, failing at each and every turn thanks to Jessie's mutant ability to detect recording devices and then ... (Jessica | My Life)
SuperBru Super Rugby | Hey, whilst my English Premier League and Champions League SuperBru performances have taken a bit of a knock as we enter the last stages of those two leagues, I'm quite pleased to see that by some miracle of some sort, I'm actually doing pretty well ... (My Life)
Jessica kicking the Punching Bag | I'm quite enjoying my punching bag hanging out front under the car port. I'll randomly lash out at it with either a fist or foot whenever the opportunity presents, though it would seem I'm not the only one who is enjoying it. Looks like Chantelle is ... (Jessica | My Life)
Photo Gallery: Scones and Jam at Hillcrest Berry Farm (2012-05-06) | Although the original plan was to visit the Babylonstoren farm on Sunday, they were too full to accommodate the combined might of the Lotter and Montgomery clans, and so instead we continued on with our journey through the Cape Winelands, ending up at the always ... (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Jessica Lotter and the Mobile Phone Ring | Little Jessica can get pretty excited and pull some seriously cute faces over little things that tickles her fancy, one in particular being Oupa Monty's ringtone that mimics the sounds of guinea fowl. Unfortunately for us though, replicating her normal behaviour for the camera proves ... (Jessica | My Life)
And Recently... | I guess our quota of public holidays are pretty much up for now, but damn, what a good run it has been. I'm not sure I even remember what a five day work week is any more! As it happens, next week will also be ... (My Life)
Godzilla Toddler Jessica! | We received these cool stacking blocks awhile ago from my mom (I think). Anyway, the important thing about this colourful, plastic stacking blocks is that although Jessica hasn't quite got the hang of actually stacking them just yet, she does most certainly know that she ...
