I am still in disbelief that I have a grade 2 daughter and grade R son! Where has the time gone?

Since the start of lockdown I’ve been working out at home and have enjoyed so many free online workout resources. To be honest, I’m really enjoying it and have never felt better about my fitness level.

new year

With a 9pm curfew put in place, there’s no better place to spend New Years Eve than in the comfort of our homes.

2020 has been an incredibly tough year for all of us and after the request from the President, we will definitely be lighting a candle in our home at midnight, in honour of those we have lost along the way.

I thought I’d share some ideas we are considering to do at home with the kids this New Years Eve.
