Low tea? How oDD

Low tea? How oDD

Sometimes all this blogging pays off.  I had about 20 seconds of fame today.  People knew who I was… …well kind of.  They called me Martina-in-Jozi, but what the hell?!  It’s kind of the same thing.  I had been invited by my favourite cafe ’round these parts – The oDD Cafe – to their inaugural Low Tea.  High … Continue reading

Stranded at the drive in, branded such a fool….

…what will they say, Monday at school?!  Saaandy, baaaby, I’m i….right, must stop that, but I absolutely cannot think of a drive in without thinking of Grease! I don’t usually blog about something that another Jozi blogger has recently published.  The thing is, the Velskoen Drive In Cinema needs to be written about as it is … Continue reading

Shmoke and a pancake

OK, no smoking actually happened, and there were way more pancakes than just 1… Pancake Day is BIG NEWS in our house.  It’s actually big news in the UK.  I think mostly amongst the people I socialise with it is more the actual pancakes than for the meaning of the day.  Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) … Continue reading
