Light at the end of the lift

 "To wheelie a wheelchair down stairs isn’t exactly an easy task" For the first time in six months I can come home in peace, move into the reception area, push the lift button and without effort get into my Sea Point apartment. When I started looking for an apartment...

Just. Say. Yes.

Why do we always wait before we do something we know will provide so much pleasure? About a month ago Amor Engelbrecht from Pasella asked me if I would like to be part of a programme focusing on activities not traditionally seen as “accessible”.  Why not?  Just say...

Gone before their time

The morning I found out, there was technological chaos in the studio.  I literally had to grab the news 20 seconds before 09:00 and read the bulletin completely unprepared.  I vaguely remember hearing about a journalist dying before her time on Monitor earlier that...

Skinny girls don’t have body image issues…?

"If I could’ve placed a microphone in a position to record the discussion" After a recent speech about weight-loss at an exercise studio I found myself with a “skinny-girl” drink aka bubbly in hand talking to a small group of women that attended the event. If I...

Welcome to a piece of my life!

What is you weight-loss secret?  How do you always manage to sound so positive? What is star anise and cardamom? I receive daily e-mails, sms messages, Tweets and Facebook posts about everything from weight-loss to how I should deal with my child coming out of the...

There is always enough time

I’m a big fan of the programme House and of course a big fan of Hugh Laurie, who plays the role of “House”.  At a recent party I attended, blues were flowing from the speakers.  “It’s Hugh Laurie’s new album”, a friend tells me.  A couple of months later I’m at...
