Who am I?


You are a ghost, driving a meat skeleton made of stardust, what do you have to be scared of? (Author unknown)

I have always been writing. I do not have many childhood memories, but I do remember sitting on the windowsill of our home in the mining town of Welkom, and writing songs and poems. Later in my early teens I wrote novels on the typewriter my mum gave me.

I went on to read law at uni, but kept at my “hobby”. The pen and paper, later the Word program stayed my constant companion when thoughts just had to be made tangible on paper.

My life took a couple of detours and now, here at the shores of Western Australia I have finally plucked up the courage to make more of this “hobby” of mine, that has never really been a”hobby” but a way of living, more public.

In this blog I share my migration experience to the Great South Land, my experiences home schooling and parenting my kids, my thoughts on being a middle aged (could that be?) woman, and my thought on life in general.

I am bilingual and my posts will be in either English or Afrikaans.

Welcome to my thoughts and my life.

  1. Hi Marelize
    Ek het nou net jou O fok hopies gelees…..en ag tog, dit was ‘n moes vir vandag. Ek sit met ‘n paar sulke hopies en die goed bly babies kry. EK sal maar begin om die eerste een nou uit te sort en ophou om jou awesome blog te lees – sal weer terug kom na die hopies.
    Cheers vir eers

    • Hi,

      twitter is something I have not even though of! I am a bit OCD with FB and WordPress that I fear to think what twitter will do to me:) I may just rethink my view on it after this weekend when I have attended my first ProBlogger event.

      Will keep you updated and thank you for the positive feedback.


  2. Hello Marlize,
    So nice to meet you, I just followed your blog from Facebook about homeschooling, I am now a follower. Welcome to Australia, I am in Victoria and headed to Western Australia in 13 days, we are spending two months exploring, living in tents and himeschooling Star Son who is 13!
    I’ll be blogging about it as we go!


    • Thank you so much for following my blog! I appreciate it so much!

      May you have safe travels and a wonderful WA experience this side:) I am going to follow your blog, as it is a big dream of ours to do the same, and I will learn from your experience.
