1 back-to-school breakfast smoothie 4 ways

Yikes! I wrote this wonderful back-to-school post 4 weeks ago already, and was so busy back-to-schooling, I never got around to posting it! So imagine for a minute it’s that back-to-school week, and you’re bracing for the full impact of having to organise little (and some not-so-little) people’s lives again: Ah can you smell it?…

I’ve always been a fan of the bush. From my early days as a rookie travel reporter covering stories in private reserves up north to my honeymoon years later, traversing the sandy tracks of the Kruger singing along at the top of my voice to Johnny Clegg (think Jock of the Bushveld…yeah, I’m nostalgic like…

About
Welcome to Muddy Boots, a little escape from your everyday world that features my personal experiences with family-friendly travel, leisure and lifestyle activities in South Africa. I’m a fulltime writer, editor and author; wife to a long-suffering husband; mom to 3 young boys (aged 10, 4 and 1); and pack leader to 2 mutts and 1 thieving Weimaraner who steals (and eats) everything he sees. We all live together in a little village at the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains in the southern Cape, where the weather is wild and traffic jams usually involve waiting for herds of lazy bovines to cross the road.
