Last month I had to go and get my fingerprints taken. Unfortunately, the machine was struggling to read my prints. Apparently, this is quite common and the lady operating it suggested I put some hand-cream on as this makes it easier for the machine to scan the prints, as she gestured to my oversized handbag, fully expecting me to whip some out!
I am a mom of two little girls. The eldest is six years old and the youngest is four. I am a wife, and a Stay At Home Mom. We live in the Free State in South Africa but we move quite a lot. Previously we have lived in the UK and Zimbabwe, and in various places within each country. Whilst I can be a bit of in introvert when at home, those who get to know me and more about me will find that my home is loud, crazy, and never exactly tidy. I tend to shout and scream as much as the girls do - #badmom I know! My favourite TV shows are Grey's Anatomy and The Big Bang Theory. After the girls are in bed, and when I'm not busy blogging I can usually be found watching one of these with a glass of wine in hand. I absolutely love travelling and am always looking for the next roadtrip or adventure to experience with my husband and girls.
Sometimes memories flash up on my Facebook of my beautiful girls, looking happy, having fun. Sometimes I'm in the picture with them, mostly not. I often struggle to remember that precise day or moment, and I wonder to myself, "Does that make me a bad mom?"
