Uiteindelik kom ek uit by my Skrif Oefeninge reeks! Hierdie oefeninge is baie goed vir fyn motoriese funksies… herhinner kleintjies om van links tot regs te skryf en maak seker die greep is reg. Kleiner kindertjies kan dikker kryte gebruik en later oorbeweeg na driehoekies en driehoek potlode. Onthou hierdie blad is afhanklik van “shares” en moet asb nooit afgelaaide bladsye deel as daar nie ‘n skakel na hierdie blad toe is nie. Byvoorbaat dankie en geniet!

Ek het ‘n paar nuwe drukbare werkskaarte. Daar kom ook nog ‘n Middel Klank en twee Eindklank werkskaarte. Laat weet maar gerus as daar iets kort, ek het hulle so ‘n bietjie met ‘n Covid-brein gedoen. Ek is ook nie seker oor die spelling van Begin Klanke, Middel Klanke en Eindklanke nie. Soos ek verstaan kan dit met of sonder ‘n koppelteken wees, maar Eindklanke bly een woord? Help gerus in die “Comments” seksie!

My Life is a House

My Life is a House
My Life is a House

I recently took a longer (yet still only 8km) run than I’m used to as I’ve been increasing my distances over time. In that time I had an epiphany about my life in the light of Covid lockdown. I started seeing my life as a house. I am currently in a house… theres breathing space and there’s windows and doors, and I am able to open and close doors and windows as I wish.

GetFit Series #6

This week I finally started doing some extra weight training, sit ups, push ups, rope jumping etc. that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I’ve noticed excess skin forming in certain areas and wanted to start toning a bit. It’s been a challenge though… the small cottage that we are in on the farm has little space for exercise unless I want to try it on the stones and thorns outside, so i have had to train in the bathroom as the only place to hook my feet for sit ups… yes… theres a toilet behind me in that photo!

I am pleased to say that I am still getting fitter and have lost 10kg by now, slowly but surely in spite of lockdown. I am fortunate to be “stuck” on the family farm with lots of open space to run… I don’t take this for granted at all in spite of my despondency about the extended lockdown for South Africa and I know how blessed I am when I consider the small spaces the largest part of our country has to endure. I guess I just wish I could get some new clothes as mine are starting to hang like sacks.. but hey… first world problems I guess!

Wow… it’s been exactly a year to the day since I started this series and even though I haven’t blogged about it recently I am surprised that I am still going strong. I am super proud and excited to say that I have lost 6,5kg this year since I started getting my life back.

It’s been a roller coaster of note emotionally, I’m not going to lie to you but the physical work has been easier than I thought it would be. A few things have changed since my last entry and a few things have not changed at all, so let me break it down for you…

Great DIY gift: Wine beanies or I’ll call them Wineys…

A while back I had to make DIY Chirstmas gifts for Mother&Child Magazine. I had so much fun creating these, so I thought I’d add them to my gift ideas for this Christmas.

I just love DIY Christmas crafts! The idea of thoughtfully making something for someone with love, warms my heart. As gifts, the challenge for me was adding some gifts that people actually want and not only use on Christmas day so something not necessarily Christmassy that they will want to use during the whole year. 

Enters my first idea:

The Benefits of Chess for Kids’ Development *Guest Post*

So I’ve been seeing posts of a friend of mine of his 6 year old son kicking but at chess tournaments and I was totally surprised… 6 year olds can play chess? I started showing my 6 year old twins a move or two and quickly realised that they could do much more than we think. George Harrolds of Kaoori Chess sets is going to tell us more about the benefits of chess for kids’ development.
