Online Shopping – Yay or Nay?

So the other day my Boss comes up to me and asks whether I’ve ever bought clothing or shoes from an Online store before. I of course replied saying yes and he was like “How can you buy something without being able to see it or try it on?”

It’s something I’ve become quite accustomed to of late and I don’t really see it as a deterrent. Maybe at first I did. Like what do you do if it doesn’t fit? Or if it breaks? Well, it’s pretty much the same as if you’d buy in store. In fact it’s easier, because someone will collect the item from you!

I also kind of enjoy the wait, the build up and excitement of having the items delivered. How will it look? How will it feel? Will it fit?

Happy half birthday Aidan


My little man turned six months yesterday and it’s hard to believe that in just a few months I will need to start planning his first birthday party. He is growing so beautifully and has become such a social butterfly. Alyssa is already his favorite playmate and she has him giggling and babbling all the time. He still wakes up once or twice during the night but goes back down quite quickly. I am REALLY hoping that he will begin to sleep through the night within the next few months. I read that once protein is introduced to his meals (which I have just done this week) , it should keep him fuller for longer and hopefully that will aid him to sleep longer stretches during the night. Fingers crossed.

I spent my Saturday morning with the best Mommy Bloggers in Cape Town! Cindy Alfino from 3 Kids 2 Dogs 1 House was the organizer and  host of the meet up and done an AMAZING job! We met at Graze in Kenilworth – such an awesome venue – I’m definitely going back with my family very soon. They have the most fabulous kiddies menu ever and their Grilled ham and cheese, poached egg and mushroom sauce breakfast is just heavenly.
