Having a budding young cricket player on our hands, it wasn't difficult finding Miggie around the campsite at Mahai in the Drakensberg during December when we were looking for her. Just find the nearest cricket game and she will be there. Preferably one with adults playing as "they bowl better", to quote her.
Today's post is a more personal one. Why? Because I can and I feel like bragging a bit.When your daughter's idols are Kagiso Rabada, Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers and Imran Tahir then you know she's a cricket fan. The difference from other girls who are just cricket fans though is that mine has a … Continue reading Little Miss Cricket
We popped in for a quick visit with the donkeys at the East Cape Horse Care Unit the other morning and Drama Princess nearly left with their friendly cat. I don't think our Daxies would have been too happy if she did though.
Drama Princess started playing Indoor Cricket at the Hunters Retreat Indoor Cricket Arena about two months ago and over the last two Sundays played in the EP junior trials. The SA junior champs take place right here in Port Elizabeth in April next year with teams being selected to represent the province in the u10, u12, … Continue reading EP Indoor Cricket trials
Literally for the last couple of years now the Damselfly has wanted to visit Redberry Farm in George on the Garden Route. We just never had the opportunity to be in the area long enough to do so until we spent a long weekend in the town recently. It meant that Redberry Farm was at the … Continue reading Getting lost in the Redberry Maze in George

It used to be one of my regular stops on the Garden Route back when I was working as a tourist guide and the Outenique Choo Tjie steam train was still running. Spending … Continue reading Trains, trains and some other stuff at the Outeniqua Transport Museum
Ironkids takes place the day before Ironman and consists of a swim and a run. The Ironkids in Port Elizabeth is the biggest Ironkids competition in the world and would probably have been mush bigger if they didn't have to cap entries. Drama Princess took park in her 5th Ironkids competition this year and had … Continue reading Drama Princess at Ironkids 2016
Last weekend I was tiling in the kitchen and at some stage during the afternoon we realised that we just won't be able to braai and will probably just get something quick to eat. Drama Princess wanted nothing of that and packed the wood, lit the fire and braai'd the meat. Today we've been busy … Continue reading A braai with Drama Princess
Every year we go on a camping over the summer school holiday. We're not the "return to the same place year after year" type of campers as we want to explore and discover new places. As we live in Port Elizabeth and by the sea, we're also not bothered by coastal holidays which tends to … Continue reading Camping at Vloedbos in the Overberg – a winning option all around
It is summer and schools have started so it means that it is athletics time. Over the last week and a half I attended both KidZ' inter house athletics meets. First it was Chaos Boy who is in DF Malherbe High School and had their inter house day at the NMMU track. A week later Drama … Continue reading Inter house athletics
