LEGO on the cheap: Enlighten Bricks | As a child I adored LEGO. Obviously we didn't have very much in terms of LEGO sets, because even in the 80's LEGO was ridiculously overpriced and we were poor(ish). Today it feels even worse. (The overpriced LEGO, not being poor.) A brand new, wonderfully stocked ... (My Life | Toys)
Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014 | So reflecting back on 2013 very quickly points to it as having been a rather uneventful year - certainly not a horrible year, but certainly not a very exciting year either! Having already downgraded my outlook for the year to a more realistic view at ... (My Life)
For Sale: Sturdy White Baby Compactum - R1,200 | Please note that this item has since been sold and is no longer available for purchase. Although we've just had our second baby arrive on the scene, unfortunately the room that she now calls her own simply doesn't have enough floor space to accommodate the beautifully ... (For Sale)
For Sale: Flatscreen TV Stand - R200 | Please note that this item has since been sold and is no longer available for purchase. Sadly, with the recent birth of my second child, my space in the house has shrunk yet again (in other words, I lost my man cave office space), meaning that ... (For Sale)
Photo Gallery: Emily and Chantelle Return Home (2014-01-16) | Eventually Chantelle's lovely rest break at the hospital had to come to an end - which of course translates to "Yay, Emily is coming home!" time. And so far so good, Jessica has been pretty good with the new addition to the family. Hopefully this lasts... (Photo Gallery)
Photo Gallery: Emily and Chantelle in Hospital (2014-01-14) | Chantelle and Emily stayed the required three nights at hospital following the successful cesarean section operation on the Monday morning. Naturally, I paid them plenty of visits over that period - even taking Jess along every now and then too! Chantelle enjoyed the rest break (no ... (Photo Gallery)
Photo Gallery: The Birth of Emily Jane Lotter (2014-01-13) | On the 13th of January 2014, 08:14, via a Cesarean Section performed by the awesome Dr. Jane La Grange at Mediclinic Vergelegen in Somerset West, little Lotter #2, weighing in at a healthy 3.53 kg, was brought kicking and screaming into this world - say ...

Photo Gallery: Visit to Cape Town Company's Garden (2014-01-11) | We were in Cape Town to check out the Hope Street Market as a possible trading venue (it was a little disappointing truth be told), and whilst there, I came up with the impromptu idea of taking Jess and Chantelle (who claims to have never ... (Photo Gallery)
An Emily Update | So the end of the road is finally in sight - this coming Monday, 13 January 2014, Chantelle and I will be welcoming into this world our little Emily, in all likelihood the last addition to our little branch of the Lotter Clan. It's been a ... (My Life)
And I'm back... More or Less | Well I can't say that I didn't enjoy my extended break from blogging - I've pretty much not written anything of substance since mid-October last year, and taking a break from the keyboard in the evenings to rather spend time with either Jess or Chantelle, ... (Blogging)
Photo Gallery: Jessica Enjoys Playing LEGO (2014-01-08) | Pleasingly, Jessica is developing quite a fondness for LEGO. This makes me very happy, because I remember enjoying LEGO tremendously as a child. Sadly, this also fills me with deep angst and regret - because of course true LEGO is very, very expensive. Thankfully, I should be ... (Photo Gallery)
Photo Gallery: Impromptu Picnic at the Helderberg Nature Reserve (2014-01-02) | It seemed like a very good idea to start off 2014 with a breath of fresh air, and as such an impromptu picnic for Jess, myself and a heavily pregnant Chantelle seemed an awfully great idea at the time. We played, we ate, and we relaxed ... (Photo Gallery)
