Six Degrees of Separation – No Purrs, Just Talk

Six Degrees of Separation – No Purrs, Just Talk

Hi there Guys! It’s just me this month for Six Degrees of Separation. We are taking a long weekend and the fluffy ball of fur is at home with the rest of the fur-balls and a babysitter. So no unnecessary meows and purrs today, just straight talk and a quick post so I can get back to my reading, relaxing and drinking wine. This monthly fun meme is hosted by Books are my Favorite and Best: On the first Saturday of every month, a book is chosen as a starting point and linked to six other books to form a chain. Books can be linked in obvious ways, for example: same authors, same era or genre, or books with similar themes or settings. Or you might choose to link them in more personal ways: books you read in the same holiday, books given to you by a particular friend or books that […]

All Men Love Leah by Ksenija Nikolova Published by Kingsley Publishers on August 24th, 2021 Genres: Contemporary, Thriller Pages: 250 Format: ARC Source: Lola’s Blog Tours Buy on Amazon Goodreads All Enzo wants is a reason to believe it's all worthwhile.

But everything is not what it seems. There is […]

Monday Bloopers #4 – A Spark of Light

Monday Bloopers #4 – A Spark of Light

Greetings Humans! It’s the first Monday of November and this month, we are going to be better. We haven’t done a Monday Bloopers post for the last 2 months and I am terribly upset about this. I’ve inspired my Mommy to upgrade to WordPress, I’ve slept sat through hours of post tweaking and blog design and she still doesn’t do the one post that is all about me. Monday Bloopers is a fun monthly meme to show off your pet’s lesser photogenic side.  I guess the idea is to post a photo that didn’t work as well as the shooter anticipated it would. *Camera shooter. It’s hosted by Melissa @ Melissa’s Mocha’s, Mysteries & Meows and if you are in the mood for some feline love, you really should go and visit her. Pet Photo Fails is also a link-up meme, so don’t forget to share your link and to visit the other photo fails. As […]

Greetings Humans! Welcome to another week of Wondrous Words Wednesday, hosted by yours truly. Wondrous Words Wednesday is a biweekly meme hosted by yours truly. The concept is fairly easy – all you need to do, is share any new (or new to you) words you came across this week and share them with us. You are also welcome to share words you simply want to show off to us. For more on Wondrous Words Wednesday, you can click here. As you know, my Mommy is a librarian and a language teacher. You can imagine all the funny things she comes across on a daily basis. In South Africa, there are 11 (nope, not a typing error – really eleven) official languages. My Mommy’s native tongue is Afrikaans and about 50% of her students speak Afrikaans first language as well. It’s not wonder that the kids sometimes get confused with […]
