Appreciating the 'other' domestic goddess in your home

Posted by Isabelle on Tuesday, March 31, 2009, In : Thinking about it 
My dear domestic worker's mother passed away last week and she has been on the family farm attending to all things familial for almost 2 weeks on and off. This has meant that I am doing the housework along with everything else I have to do in a day.

Last night I had a hot date with Mr. Iron and it did make me consider how many people do not appreciate what their domestic worker helps them with every day. The truth is, South Africans are very fortunate to have domestic help, and whilst I know ...

Bailing my daughter out

Posted by Isabelle on Thursday, March 19, 2009, In : I am only human! 
I generally try to not bail my kids out when they forget something at home but this week I really had to be just mom and forget the life lessons.

It was photo day yesterday and my daughter forgot to wear a white shirt under her school dress, as was required. When a friend of mine saw her at school without it, he called me to rescue her. I didn't even hesitate. She is normally always responsible so instead of trying to teach her a lesson, I went to the rescue.

Lessons can wait for another day.....

Like the electrician who doesn't have lighbulbs in the house....

Posted by Isabelle on Thursday, March 12, 2009, In : Thinking about it 
It has been a busy time for the Neat Freak - what with setting up the website, marketing and the catalogue. I am starting to feel a little like the electrician who doesn't have lighbulbs in the house or the doctor who always has sick children.

This is because as the Neat Freak, I should never have a problem with time-management, but I have to confess I am snowed under! And it doesn't feel very comfortable. In my case, I have systems in place which do help me a great deal, but I also think the...
