A few things about me

It’s weird to say this but I have missed you guys. Don’t ask, but I have.

So like I  mentioned previously mum is around and stories abound. The hotest story was hearing ati someone unleased on his wife “the other child” who had been secret for over 10 years. Can we all say gobsmacked. The other story was about how another relative, while at his death bed, the other family came to visit. Now here is my question :Why do men cheat? Why do you go and have another child or family out of your home and then keep it secret and still remain with your wife. Why? Why after you are busted do you proceed to say “me I love my wife”? What the fuck? What kind of love is that?

And us women why are we so forgiving of cheating husbands? Yani we don’t even punish the guy. And yes if you decide to stay for whatever reason, the man MUST BE PUNISHED by whatever possible. In  “the other child” scenario, this is the solution I gave.  The wife, hubby and other woman should  have a sitdown to decide on  a way forward with regards to the other child. When does s/he get to see his dad. When does she/he get introduced to the rest of the family. Drama just plain ass drama. If he had kept it zipped there would be no drama.. but nah.. the dick ruled.. as seems to be the case all the time. Yani testestorone (sp) is what kinda beast?

I always tell Big Al..”if or when you get fed up with me, or you find another one and you feel it ain’t working out for you.. just come and tell me… “it’s not working for me” . I will leave without issue. But if you pull some stupid stunt..  I will do things you never even dreamed of… Stupid stunts include… dumping me when I am 50something for a 20something year old… my blood just boils on that issue!!!

Apart from that, life is bumbling along well. I am really enjoying having mum here. Did I say I am loving all the help around the house and the babysitting. Baby who is not so baby any more has taken to his grandma and they just adore each other. I am dreading when she leaves. But that is still several weeks aways.

Onto baby news. I do not think I have mentioned how ENERGETIC my son is. HIGH OCTANE is the expression I like to use. From when we get up in the morning to when we go to sleep at 8.00pm, it is all systems go.  Today mum looked at me and said…”Mrembo..Nikh is just you in a miniture. You were as loud and noisy… but less on the energy” Nikh feels everything intensely. Anger, happiness, delight, frustration, fear, love. All of it is just intense. When angry he stomps his feet. He is 15 months old June 1st. Who the heck taught him to stomp his feet… but he does.  When he is happy, I get voluntary kisses on the lips, hugs and palm on my cheek as he tell me how much he loves me (thats what I believe the jabbering is about) 🙂 . When frustrated, he SCREAMS the house down. When excited he squeels with delight and lights up like a bulb. like I said everything INTENSE. I have accepted him as he is and now equipping myself daily with ways to deal with is tempratment and not kill his spirit.  I won’t lie.. there are days when it is tough being his mum. the days when I just cannot keep  up with the energy levels, the anger, frustration.  Then there are the ANGEL days and that pretty much says it all.

And that’s about it from Mrembosville. Big Al is off galavanting again.  School is going really good though at the moment I am stuggling with a 200 word essay on money, I can’t seem to get into the flow of it. Summer is around the corner and I am thinking about God again…

Take care

Where have I been?


I have been busy as a bee doing this that and the other. Mum is around. Good stuff. Stories are many and time’s awasting.. so have not had a minute to blog.

Don’t know when I will resume normal programming but I will be around. I am fine. Baby’s fine, Babydaddy is good too, so is mum.

Take care, be good and I will see you when I see you.


J.R Ward:Black Dagger Brotherhood-Review

My angst with reviewers of this particular series of books has prompted me to write my own review.

I now own 5 of the books. Number six is yet to be released in Europe and number seven is being written as we speak. Yes I intend to buy both, though I will wait till number 7 is out before I buy no. 6.

As I type I am realising that the critiques are actually right so my critique of thier critiques is falling apart because I am agreeing with them.

What do I honestly think of the books. Wrath’s, Zsadist’s and Butch’s stories are on the money. I am curious to read Phury’s though I am wondering how he will get over being inlove with his sis-in-law. I own Vishous’ and Rhage’s books but I am yet to read them.

Regarding the plausibilty of white, hetro, leatherwearing men listening to hardcore rap and refering to each other as my brother (that’s fiction for you) and I have no beef with that.

I agree that the female heroines should have been a tad more stronger in character…Butch’s wife just got on my nerves. I loved Bella though. She was alright.

All in all. A good series of books. Very very addictive. If you are going to buy them. Get the whole series at once.

Is JR Ward inducted into my hall of fame for writers. Not yet.  So far only Laura Kinsale has a place there. Why? She ties the story. As in there are no loose ends in her books.  Her hero and heroines are always different, never once do you feel you are reading the  about same character again and again ala Stephanie Laurens, Judith Mcnaught, and the other chick who is the absolute worst at it.  JR Ward has not yet quiet managed that. She tries but she is not yet there. ON the same hand she is not as bad as the ladies I have named.

My conclusion. Go out, get the books and loose yourself in some vampire fantasy, lesser killing, leather wearing dudes romance!
