Get well Tata

There are very few people in the world to evoke such strong feelings of peace, love and acceptance as Nelson Mandela.  With our former president been in Milpark Hospital, many of us are left thinking “what if he doesn’t get better?’.

I feel that everyone is entitled to their privacy, especially during a personally trying time.  With the world’s media centred on Madiba and his condition, I want to send a message to Tata and his family – we wish you a speedy recovery and whatever the outcome, we owe were we are to your strength and wisdom.

Get Well Tata Madiba

Global Economic Summit – Can we help ourselves

The recent recession hit many of us in South Africa hard.  High numbers of jobs were lost as countless companies closed their doors.  My husband’s family business was hard hit aswell, with blessing, they have remained open, however our budget has become exceptional tight.

A radio discussion this morning got me thinking, I don’t like many ideas our government has on health, housing, social development and environmental issues – I won’t even start on economic issues.  I also feel we talk more than we do.  My activities in the local community help me to give back and do my bit for our society, however I’m left with, “what can I do to take hold of my family’s future in these dull times?”

I feel very strongly that we should all have a skill, hobby or pastime that we enjoy doing.  Why not use that skill or hobby to create a safety net for you to fall financially?  We don’t have to be the next Martha Stewart, but we can make small nest eggs for ourselves.  My thinking is that not only will it be an excuse for you to enjoy something that you love doing, but you can then become a little bit more independent from the government.  This way we become more in control of our future and less reliant on government to create jobs for us. 

So if you don’t like what you hear coming from the Global Economic Summit, don’t feel despondent, you can do something about it!  We can also use this as part of our children’s lives to teach them about hard work and how there is no substitute for it.

Good luck on your independent missions and let me know how it goes…

We Would Love to Hear from You

Kim and I are dying to know who our readers are, what our audience thinks, feels, knows, need to know and wants us to know about.

From the eco to the friendly, from kiddies and hubbys to pest and junk collections, whatever you think, the good, bad and the totally ridiculous – we want to know what you think. 

We are so busy with our day jobs, taibo, kids, houses, pets and then by the time we get into bed at night, we have forgotten to ask all of you what is on your mind.

You would help us out hugely by letting us know of what’s happening in and around that we perhaps missed.  Don’t be shy, we’ll love you all the same!

Happy recycling and commenting

Christmas Shoe Box Project

Hello all – with Christmas around the coner, we are planning to host 4 Christmas parties for organisations in our town.  The idea is to give each kiddie a small gift in a shoe box to be wrapped by us. 

We are expecting roughly 90 kiddies in total and we want to give each a small, thoughtful gift.  Below is the list of kiddies we are needing gifts for, if you would like to sponsor a gift/s, please email us and we’ll make the necessary arrangements to collect the gift once you are ready.

We would like to have all gifts registered and collected by Wednesday, 6th December 2010.  Should you wish to donate money instead of a gift, you are welcome to do so.

All who donate will receive photos of “thier” kiddie at the party as well as a drawing or artwork done by them, to bring a smile to your heart.

Our First Visit to Lukhanyiso School

We visited – our first visit to Lukhanysio School in Amalinda Forest, East London was an eye opener.  This is the school where we will be piloting our school veggie garden project.

We found a school in need of so much, yet the children smiled and played as if they didn’t have a care in the world.  We will put the final touches on the plan this week to hopeful break ground the second week in August.

After seeing the school, we not only want to help establish a veggie garden, we want to help to get the school into a better learning and teaching environment.

Items that were noted that needed attention:

  • broken windows
  • broken tables and chairs
  • serious lack of tables and chairs
  • shelving for library
  • security gates and bars of all classrooms
  • container needed for a computer lab for teachers and students
  • proper kitchen facilities
  • proper school hall / dining hall
  • proper grass and playground equipment
  • desks for teachers
  • proper staff room
  • high volume photocopiers and printer
  • fax machine
  • computers for teachers adminstration
  • water tanks to provide drinking water
  • signage for the school
  • paint for the buildings
  • educational materials for teachers and classrooms
  • plastic plates for lunches
  • metal spoons for lunches
  • plastic cups with handles for soups and drinking

We would also want to provide each child at the school with a hygiene bag consisting of:

  • 1 x face cloth
  • 1 x toothbrush
  • 1 x toothpaste
  • 1 x soap
  • 1 x draw string material bag with child’s name on

We want cleaning and hygiene to become a habit for these children to help prevent disease and spreading of colds and flu. 

If anyone would like to help us with donations of equipment or you want to get down and dirty with us – your are most welcome!

We Got Another Mention

Driving to work this morning I was ecstatic to hear Lee-Ann mentioned us on Gareth Cliff’s 5fm morning show!  I almost missed the 4 way stop because I was going wild instead of  breaking. 

Luckily I drive like snail (according to my hubby) 🙂 🙂  There’s a reason I stick to the speed limit.
