my creepy crawlies

My little people are quite active in the nighttime… There’s always a last drama, playing rough and someone gets hurt, a last trick to play on someone or someone screaming with laughter, the blurry pictures means I was probably laughing too 🙂 The twins have been restless sleepers from  the get go, I remember people…

Heatwave

So, global warming is definitely a thing people. Here in the southern parts of Africa we are experiencing a serious heatwave. My car registered 40 degrees the other day.
