“Black Friday” #ventpost

What. Is. This. Black. Friday. Kak!!!!!!!
I really don’t understand how South Africa thinks it’s jist ok to hitch off the back of the USA with this “holiday”
Was any actual research done or are people just concerned with the “specials”
I’m all for 5 2L gas drinks for R50……I am
BUT seriously?
Fighting over frozen chicken, falling over kids, empty pallets falling over pregnant ladies?
When was this senseless violence condoned?
Is it because we’re so immune to all that goes on around us?
Baby/Toddler Rape
Gut Wrenching Murder
For The Fun Beatings
I really think that South Africa should get a fuckin grip and start dealing with THIS countries issues before deciding to highjacking another
Seriously……..Google “Black Friday” & then you explain to me if your conscience soul will still allowa you to stand in that queue for longer than 4 hours and get those “specials”

Bucket List

image

With the year coming to an end, I have realised there are ALOT of things I have not done and I guess being 2 weeks into my 27th year has made me realise a few things. I am a single mother and I don’t get to spend much time with my child, so I have made a kinda sorta bucket list from now until 31 December 2015.

image

I would like to go Strawberry Picking. I have done this before but I feel that my daughter is older now, so she might enjoy it more

image

I would LOVE to go and watch a movie at the Galileo Open Air Theatre! Not only are they showing some of my favourites but it seems like it would be an amazing treat!

image

I would love to take my daughter to the Aquarium……or any kid friendly place in the V&A

image

For the past few days, I have been craving a movie. In a cinema. Popcorn. Slush puppy. A grown up movie. One that doesnt require any bathroom breaks or one that doesn’t require us leaving 45 minutes into the movie

image

Taking my daughter to The Company Gardens again, for the food and to feed the squirrels

————————————————
Now, it’s not the greatest or most exciting bucket list but these are things I’ve been craving……….that’s if it’s possible to crave doing things that you hope are somewhat relaxing
————————————————
With the year drawing to a close, do you have anything on your bucket list?

Being A Better Mommy

I’ve made a decision to become a better mommy
I am not a good monmy
I am a bad mommy
I know that
I acknowledge that
I admit that
But my daughter deserves better
She deserves more
She deserves to see the worth I place in myself instilled in the way I treat her
She deserves to know what it feels like to be constantly pushed forward
Persevered
I have to be a better mommy for her
No more negative talk
She deserves to see the rainbow
She needs to know what it means to be unconditionally and ruthlessly loved

My Mommy Voice

It happens. I’ve heard it. I’m sure we all have one. Mine is a bit weird though. Random. Unexpected even. It’s English. Like proper,the Queens English kinda shit. I don’t know why or how it came to be. It happens unexpectedly. I think, especially when I get frustrated with Zineah. It slips out. Like a bad version of myself. But in such a polite,kept together kinda way. Like in a eerie way. Like you’re not really sure if I’m upset with you but you know the shit that previously flew will no longer fly now. Not when the Queens English escapeth.

Do you have a Mommy voice? Are you proud of it?

Work Birthday

Google HBD

Seriously? How awesome is my birthday? 27 years old and what a way to start off a birthday.

Everyone at work ignores me, or doesn’t say “Happy Birthday” because they want me to think they forgot.

I baked choc chip muffins

It’s been a tough 2 weeks and I was NOT looking forward to this birthday, especially in the office.

It was epic though the balloons were pure awesomeness 🙂 IMG_20151117_103235

Happiest Of Birthdays To My Beautiful Mother🎂🎁🎉🎊
My parents don’t read my blog and I don’t want them to but I’ll just let everyone in on what she has taught me and what she is still teaching me ❤❤❤❤

Always be strong
Don’t keep your mouth shut for anyone but know when to be silent
Be courageous
Always and only expect the best from yourself
Take care of yourself
Know everything but don’t be a knowitall
Protect your heart
Always dress like you’re meeting the love of your life
