It’s all the little things in life that matters like walking with hubby in a nature reserve, visiting family and having time for the 3 critters that live with us.

I am renowned for my laid-back lifestyle and my ever urgent need to go to the beach – and I live in Joburg. It sounds wrong that I’m a Joburger and laid-back – right? When we get to the Ballito house and unpack the 3 critters my husband suddenly gets the same lazy look I have until we get there. It is food and water for the cats and then beach. I don’t like to clean house unless I have dipped toes in the sea, neither do I want to know that we have to buy food. I just want the sea.

Then at the end of the breakaway we pack the critters and make our way back to Joburg and soon wish we could go back or live in Ballito forever.
