Om te skryf

Om te skryf.

Die aanvanklike titel was “om te skryf of te stop?” Hierdie is ‘n stuk wat ek paar maande terug geskryf het toe ek besef het dat alles wat ek moet doen nie in my kalender inpas nie. Soos jy kan aflei het ek my besluit geneem… jy lees immers ʼn artikel wat ek geskryf het!

Motivation in May

Motivation in May. www.mommakingmemories.comMay was a bit more difficult for me than the previous 4 months of 2017. As you know we received our Number One in January so in May it was time for me to go back to work. To add up to that winter is slowly crawling closer. Although the days are still sunny and (mostly) hot, the mornings and nights are cool. Continue reading Motivation in May

Welkom by Mom Making Memories in Afrikaans

Welkom in Afrikaans

Welkom by Mom Making Memories… in Afrikaans. Ek wonder die afgelope weke oor ʼn tweetalige blog. Daar is maar net ʼn ander manier om dinge in Afrikaans uit te druk, dus het ek besluit om ‘n Afrikaanse kategorie by te voeg.

Wie is ek?

My naam is Rolene en ek is ‘n werkende mamma met 2 pragtige seuntjies. Ek skryf graag oor ma-wees, geloof en ons daaglikse ervarings.

Hoekom Mom Making Memories?

Die lewe is bitter gejaagd en mens kom nie altyd by alles uit nie. Ek glo elke persoon het ʼn stukkie van die lewe se legkaart en deur dit met mekaar te deel kry ons ʼn groter prentjie.

My visie vir die blog is om met ander mammas kontak te maak en mekaar te ondersteun; om hoop te bring in ‘n besige (en soms deurmekaar) wêreld en terwyl ons dit alles oorleef… die lewe te geniet en nuwe herinneringe te maak.

Wat sal jy vind op Mom Making Memories?

Stories uit ons daaglikse lewe, algemene gedagtes en dalk selfs gedigte… alles in my moedertaal!

Hoekom Afrikaans?

Want Afrikaans is lekker!

 

Ek sien uit om van jou te hoor.

Kontak my by mommakingmemories@gmail.com en stel jouself voor. Waarvan wil jy meer lees?

Kry ‘n koppie koffie, sit terug en geniet jou kuiertjie by ons!

 

Joy in January

joy in january

2015 went by in a flash, Christmas is just a memory; and with good intentions I made my New year’s resolutions.

I was looking forward to the new year, a new beginning with new challenges and joys… and then life happened. Before I continue I have to admit it was not big life-threatening challenges, but the emotional ones, making you wonder if you are good enough, if you should continue this adventure you undertook.

Life lessons I learned from blogging

Life lessons I learned from blogging

Although there are many things involved when blogging, there are two main components: writing and personal experience / opinion.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a blog as  “a Web site on which someone writes about personal opinions, activities, and experiences”. Continue reading Life lessons I learned from blogging

My husband, the entertainer

Blog my husband the entertainer facebook

I want to introduce a part of my husband to you.

When I started the blog I decided not to give too much personal information due to cybercrime and privacy, but I can’t help but to share this.

Although my husband is in IT, he is an entertainer by heart. It is a skill he learned from his father. Sometimes it can drive me crazy (almost ;-)), but time after another it make someone’s day.

This weekend we went away for the first time with our baby. I had to work but managed to arrange to go home bit earlier than usual while my husband had leave and would sort things out. Continue reading My husband, the entertainer
