This morning I woke up with a cat by my feet. It’s nothing new, but it reminded me to appreciate having my beautiful furface with me.

Me and hubby are on our own today, a treat, as the kids are off to visit friends. Well, while they visit THEIR buddies, I’m enjoying time with my own bestie….Riaan, husband of 30 years and friend for 34 years.

I am grateful to have him in my life. Don’t think anyone understands me better than him.

Oh, and I’m getting a haircut today! Long overdue. I’m VERY stingy when it comes to spending money on myself.

I’m also going to buy wool for baby Olivia’s mobile. Must get to that before she turns 20! 😂

How wonderful to have a lovely day like this, be healthy and happy and to have people who love you.

I am truly blessed.This morning I woke up with a cat by my feet. It’s nothing new, but it reminded me to appreciate having my beautiful furface with me.

Today I’m grateful for the cooler weather. It’s overcast and a relief from the seething heat we had over the past weeks.

I am also thankful for my children. I rarely think about it, especially through those stormy days when they became difficult and the mothering took its toll. But they are my miracles, each a gift from God.

I wasn’t supposed to have children, you know, all the doctors agreed. Then Rèmond came along and later, at age 32, I had Tristan. Tyla was entrusted to us by God Himself. Adopting her was a command we could not ignore.

So, today I thank God for my three miracles. He was right there during every tearful moment, helped carry every load, soothed every worry and made us brave during storms. He was also there for every joyful event, every fun day, every giggle and every achievement.

What are you grateful for today?

I thought this was hilarious! If books had feelings, eh? Well, who says they don’t?!

How do you feel about books made into movies?? I don’t have anything against it, as long as the scriptwriters stay true to the book. Very often they don’t, though, they mangle the story so much that , to the reader, it becomes unrecognisable.

I must say, I recently saw such a ‘mangling’ and it was actually brilliant. Have you watched ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ on Netflix yet? You should. It is FANTASTIC!

There are similarities to Shirley Jackson’s book, a lot if it, in fact, but it is a completely different story. I’ve the ‘The Haunting’ back in 1999, remember the one with Liam Neeson and Catherine Zeta Jones? Plus, I’ve read the book. ‘The Haunting’ was the book in pictures, but this new miniseries, WOW, it is absolutely fantastic.

If you haven’t watched it yet, please do. You will be pleasantly surprised, I guarantee it.

Visit Netflix today! Click here.
