The Girl’s Concert and Graduation Ceremony 

The Girl’s Concert and Graduation Ceremony 

Last Sunday the girls had their annual school concert and graduation at Vera Hall in Rondebosch East. All parents had to host a high tea. I really like setting up the table and decorating it but it’s rather stressful and puts a dent in your pocket. I don’t mind though, it’s once a year and the girls so look forward to being on stage and entertaining everyone. The concert started off with an Islamic theme,

Stand up for Children with Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital

Stand up for Children with Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital

When I was asked to be part of this campaign I thought geez, this is a heavy topic to be speaking to my readers about because even though violence is around us every day, we choose to look away and pretend that it doesn’t exists, we pretend it’s not happening to children close to us and around the world and we hope that at some point it would just go away.

Fears – When you are your worst enemy

Fears - When you are your worst enemy

My worst fear is not being able to protect my children… from this insanely dangerous and tough world.

Meet my son

Meet my son

Please everyone; meet my son, Mogammad Yameen Siers. He is now about a month old. We decided on the name quite early on in the pregnancy. I wanted to somehow reference my dad without actually using his name, Mohammad Yusuf. Yameen means Oath, Right Hand, Right Wing (Of the Army). Yameen has been such a pleasant child, he mostly cries when he wants to feed. He is otherwise so sweet and happy. Loves taking a

Reflection 2014

Hi everyone, as the year comes to a close I wanted to reflect on the year and what Iv leant and felt. 1. My kids are getting bigger and older and soon I’m going to have to worry about school, then primary school then boys and cars and college.
