Othello at the Maynardville Outdoor Theatre

For the last 6 years we’ve been going to the Maynardville open air theatre as a family. It’s become a tradition, and long before January, we’re all watching the website to see what show will be next. It did take a few years to convince my dad to join us, as school Shakespeare had left […]

Camping review: The African Game Lodge

Chris took me camping for my birthday :). It was kept top secret until the day of my birthday, and he often gave me hints so I could try to figure out where we could be going. These hints included things like “Take your hiking boots” and “we’ll need a spot light”. Not much to […]

Shelly Point weekend away

So I won a weekend away to the Shelly Point Hotel, which included 9 holes of golf and what they call a hydro treatment at their spa. This is all good and great on paper, but it was such a mission to just even get the booking right! As my mum had offered to help […]
