Two Nights at The Benjamin Boutique Hotel, Durban

Once you become a mother, things like sleeping in, having your bed entirely to yourself, bathing by candle light, or browsing Pinterest for hours, seem like very distant memories. Just imagine my excitement when I could recently book a quick solo trip to Durban to get some business & leisure ‘to do’s’ ticked off my […]

I tried UCOOK & this is what I think

Food is quite a thing around here & unless I’ve eaten a good home-cooked meal, I feel a bit sad. It doesn’t need to be fancy. Just hearty & healthy. Whenever we are away from home without the option to cook our own food, I even start craving cottage pie & broccoli (aka simple home-made […]

A fantastic mid-week dinner at Rosto, Linden

Let me first offer a word of caution: once you’re hooked on Glenda’s amazing food & baked goodies you won’t even be able to think or talk about it without salivating! As I’m typing this, I cannot stop thinking about when I can get to Glenda’s next. Last week marked my third visit to Glenda’s & it […]
