Back again… new energy!


the last month has been crazy, my little man has started kindergarden and even though I thought I would be cool about it, I do miss him when I leave him for 15 min. Crazy how attached a mother is to her child. Oh well its crazy how I am attached to little Lennon, who isn’t so little any more after all.
He doesn’t visit the kindergarden the whole day, just for two hours and I am accompany him the whole time, but I sit in the background and let the kindergarden teacher handle everything. Then I leave for 15 min and go around the block once or twice to kill the time. Its weird to have the time/ peace to look at things in the shops, windows and be at a supermarket without having someone pull stuff out of the shelves from their pram. Hahahaha after 2 years of having my sunshine around, I can’t remember life before him. Thats great. So happy to have him and to also slowly find some new freedom.
Next week we will hopefully take the next step and I will leave him for a longer time so that he actually really accepts and realises that I can go and leave him with the other kids and that I also come back every time.

Otherwise Berlin has been rainy, grey, winter and pre-adventszeit. When I lived in Cape Town, I always missed this time. The time when it gets cold and rainy. I do kind of love putting the heaters on, lighting candles all over the rooms and baking christmas-biscuits. It makes my heart feel warm 🙂 I have made some double chocolate chip cookies so far and some peanut butter biscuits. Lennon loves them, so do I. Papa Madola isn’t such a biscuit fan. So Lennon and I get to eat them all…


What do you guys bake, pickle, cook during this time?
Its funny in Cape Town this feeling of having to bake, cook, pickle things, never overcame me. Must have been the warm weather and time at the Clifton Beach that kept me occupied enough to not think about it 🙂

Would love to hear what you guys are making this christmas-time.

*Hugs and Kisses*

  1. My kids just started daycare in August and the younger one wasn’t too happy to start off with but quite likes it now. But they are sooooo tired even though they have pretty short days and a 4day week. I find it hard not to have the time to do the fun things, on week evenings they don’t want to go anywhere and weekends are short and can’t be fully programmed either. But since that is our biggest problem we are lucky 🙂

    I can’t say I like the darkness and the rain but I don’t mind it that much either. But I had a similar experience in Sydney: I thought I’d show Aussies a proper Christmas meal with all the casseroles we always have. But when it is 30 degrees, well, I quite enjoyed sallads and not cooking 😉

    • Thank you for taking time to comment. Yes I have also noticed that little Lennon is very tired after even just two hours of being at kindergarden. This week his Kindergarten teacher has been sick so he had to stay at home and he seems to have a huge overflow of unused energy and is putting it into throwing tantrums 😦 Oh well. Lets hope she is getting well soon so she can deal with it. Hahah. But also loving having him home.

      Thank you again.
