Reckless Sunbathing

I seem to have picked up a stalker. Saturday was a nice sunny day. For the first time this week, the sun decided to make a full day appearance. But the sky was pregnant with dark clouds to the north of me and I suspected that the rain will be on us within a couple…

Taken

I’m sitting on the bed listening to Meat Loaf. I love Meat Loaf. My boy kitten is lying on my lap. I love cats. It’s raining outside. And I love rain. All is well with me. I have some adulting to do, but for now, I’m just going to submerge myself in slow-paced contentment. And…

Ticklish

Have you ever seen the way a child reacts when they are being properly tickled? It’s something spectacular. Their boisterous laugh alone can bring a contagious magic upon any who witness the delighted torture of the little being. I tickle my kids mercilessly. I am, however, not even slightly ticklish. I have one spot where…

Honesty Hour

I failed. I unexpectedly ended up without a car on Monday, so on Tuesday the boys and I were stranded at home and seeing as I can only take so much before losing my mind, I decided to distract the boys by taking them for a walk to the shop near our home. It was…

I’ma SupaModel

One of the compulsory subjects I had while studying was Philosophy. I immensely enjoyed the subject but found there was a lot of technical studying involved and exams were never my strong suit. But during this time I learned all about Freud’s opinions on the human Ego and when, how and why it occurs in…

When you’re a race car driver at heart.

This morning, on my way to drop the boys at school, I realised that I have probably driven more cars of different makes and models than most average* people would in their lifetime. This brought me to the point where I mentally started to tick off when I drove what and, again, I marvelled at…

Reaching an equilibrium

I have done it. I am now the proud owner of a healthy dose of contentment. I’m not truly happy, per se. Not yet. But I can feel the difference in me now. Like I have reached a platform, specifically designed for people to stop and take a breather. I have concerns, but no fears.…

Cherry poppin’

If you have to lose your virginity, do it beautifully… It was midday on a Friday when I walked into the studio. The man who greeted me was friendly enough, but he wasn’t the one who would make the next step happen. It was the guy with a t-shirt, shorts, sneakers and his cap on…

It’s sweltering

I lay illuminated on the sea of green under the full moon. I am patient, I am waiting. Every breeze gives me a new breath and cools the glistening on my skin. Come and put your nose on me. Run your lips up the inside of my leg. Smell the unique scent steaming off my…

Something’s afoot…

Last night, when I went into my kitchen, I noticed a distinct floral smell. It was a happy kind of aroma and I could feel a bubble rise inside of me that associates with ‘something nice’. The only problem was that I have no flowers in my kitchen… Nor was my fabric softener just standing…
