What forts, what fairies?

I’ve been dreaming of launching my own blog ‘Forts and Fairies’ for well over two years now. I generally don’t like surprises, but my husband surprised me a little while ago with this new website we’ve been discussing for those years and it was a wonderful surprise indeed!

In addition to stockpiling lots of content since my little girl Amy was born in 2013, I’ve been formulating ideas of what else I’d like to include for my readers. Of course I will be sharing some of the stories and tales I’ve been capturing since she was born, but I have many more ideas too.

Being a mom and having a baby obviously requires a lot of stuff, and so there’s the opportunity to review all of these types of ‘things’ one needs…and those one doesn’t need! From the start I’ve always been a great believer in educational toys and books so I hope to share some of my favourite with you, along with a few of the great local suppliers you can support. Local is lekker after all. I’d also like to share some of the quotes that have spoken to my heart, and some that have made me laugh, about motherhood, I’m sure some will resonate with you and some make you giggle too.

So as you can see there is lots to look forward to – lots of forts to build, and lots of fairies to chase. I hope you enjoy sharing these with me, and please also feel free to share your comments and ideas with me too . You can also get in touch with me on the contact me section.
