Give Them Water

Ladies and Gents, if any of you have been following my blog or reading my posts, you must know that I have been trying to get a “Care Package” initiative off the ground but it seems that no one cares.

I run various Facebook pages and the one that I have officially created to be the “face” of my version of outreach is called “Care4Me

Now, I would love it if you could take 10 seconds, pop over and “LIKE” this page for me – please.

The reason for this post on SUPERbusyMOM2.0 is because I have noticed that the Cape Town summer is insane – it’s hot inside and outside and most likely everywhere #sarcasm

What I have started to do is fill water bottles, place them in the freezer overnight or for a few hours and before I head out for the day #holidays, I take them out and as I drive, if I happen to stop at a robot where someone is begging, I then hand them the somewhat, not so much iced water.

Now, you’re probably thinking “why put yourself in danger, especially this time of the year?” Because it’s fuckin hot man! I know these beggars might not seem appreciative or even downright are not, but something is better than nothing and I refuse to give money to someone who is most likely not going to use it in a resourceful or nutritious manner. What they do with my iced water is up to them but I would damn well drink it.

As drivers we do not know what it is like to stand outside the entire day, stinking up a storm. We do not know what it is like to go day in and day out, most probably not knowing that the year is coming to an end. We do not have that, albeit the wrong word, luxury, of inconvenience.

Queue too long at PNP? Complain

Coffee taste like ass from Wimpy? Complain

Debits gone off too early? Complain

I sit here, in a camping chair, on my laptop, in my room, with my fan blowing just a tad above my head. I have a clean showered body, smelling like lavendar baby powder and a tummy full of milk tart and I am thinking about the nachos I am about to make; when their are people out there who do not have the luxury of luxury.

Make 2017 great – not for you, but for them.

Pop on over to my Care4Me Facebook page, follow this blog, follow me on Insta and Twitter.

Don’t be left out on the next way to help someone who seems unhelpable. A small difference is still a difference.

*Fill a bottle with water, freeze it and carry it in your car for the day. Hand out as many as you can to the reggars (robot beggars) and hashtag #GiveThemWater

Car Ride To The New Year

As I sit in the backseat of my mom’s car,a passenger. I am able to reflect on the year past,the night past. Staring out onto the beachfront as I pass the fishermen getting ready to start their day, the early beachgoers already out before 10am and the dogs frolicking in what I imagine to be icy cold ocean water. This year. 2016. Many people have said that this year has been the worst. But has it? Really? Think about it, long and hard. Yes, this year might’ve been sucky and downright kakballs but atleast you’re still alive and breathing, perhaps barely. There are many who did not make it, did not get to share a birthday or anniversary. Every year is the worst, will be the worst, if you let it be. Besides getting my drivers license this year and driving around like the absolute rockstar I am,I also reconnected with old friends and flames. Am I still single? Yebo yes. Am I still somewhat of a recluse? Altyd. I have done things this year I never thought I would and I am sure you have to. 2016 has not been the worst, it has just been. 2017 though? That’s entirely your choice

The Weekend

No, not the singer. I am talking about my weekend away with my family. If you follow me on social media, you would’ve been witness to the pics I’ve been posting. We hopped on over to Velddrif,to a quaint guest house called “Granny Macs” 

What an awesome experience! To be almost 100% off the grid and to actually spend some quality and quantity time with my kid, grandparents and parents. We often tend to think that we are not disconnected but then you come to a place like Granny Macs and you realise how disconnected we are in terms of always being on out phones, tablets or laptops. We are often so engrossed in technology that we do not fully experience the serenity and joy of just being. 

There is not much to do in terms of kid friendly places or activities but it’s definitely a must for any family and for anyone just needing a proper off the grid, relaxing weekend. 

Have a Happy Festive Pre – Christmas Weekend 🎉🎈

A Look Into The November Belle Box

The November Belle Box

I arrived home yesterday and what did I see on the dining room table? My Belle Box!!!!! Man, was I excited ☺

I proceeded to rip open the packaging and I was enthralled by the pink paper. So bright. So beautiful. 

I have been in talks with the owner and genius behind Belle Box SA for just over a month now and recieving my November box within less than 72 hours was a big WOW for me. I am a stickler for customer service and one of my many guilty pleasures in life is recieving gifts. Not the hand to hand kind. The kind that gets delivered. I have signed up to many subscriptions and recieving then opening up that package is like me being in a candy store. I get all giddy and riled up.

The Belle Box SA for me is a fantastic subscription that caters to your non – knowing needs. Each box is special and you get a sense of the care and time that Emy has put into packing and packaging each box. The box is quaint and it really does bring a smile to your face when you see the Belle Box logo pop out at you.

Know someone who would be keen? Or are you an aspiring photographer who wants a slice of the cake? Then get in touch! Let’s chat…..I’ll even buy the coffee 🍵🍵🍵🍵
