From young love to growing old disgracefully ...<br />

we’ve rounded up some fabulous reads for the Easter weekend<br />

Heather Winterbottom has worked<br />

alongside her husband in their rural<br />

GP practise for 40 years. They’ve<br />

just hung up their stethoscopes ...<br />

but their retirement isn’t all they<br />

thought it would be. She wants to<br />

travel to a Greek island. He wants<br />

to grow a veggie garden. Neither<br />

will compromise ... so he stays with<br />

his spinach, parsnips and pumpkin,<br />

and she heads off for a gap year... all<br />

sun, sea, sand and squid on Ithaca.<br />

Madly funny, hugely enjoyable ... Mrs<br />

Winterbottom Takes a Gap Year<br />

is Joanna Nell’s latest book centred<br />

around growing old disgracefully.<br />

Hodder and Stoughton<br />

The Williamson sisters, Josephine and<br />

Penny, are Britain's most treasured World<br />

War II veterans. Now in their nineties, they’re<br />

still in great form, and are in hot demand,<br />

appearing at commemorative events all<br />

over the country. The latest excitement is a<br />

trip to Paris to receive the Légion d'honneur,<br />

accompanied by their devoted greatnephew,<br />

who believes the pair had minor<br />

roles in the Women's Royal Navy and the<br />

First Aid Nursing Yeomanry. But that's only<br />

half the story. There's a reason sweet Auntie<br />

Penny can dispatch a would-be mugger<br />

with a brolly. This trip to Paris is not what it<br />

seems either. Scandal and crime have trailed<br />

the sisters since the war. Now armed with<br />

new information about an old adversary,<br />

these much decorated (but admittedly<br />

ancient) veterans intend to settle scores,<br />

avenge lost friends, and pull off one last<br />

heist. All hidden official secrets and double<br />

lives, CJ Wray’s The Excitements is a funny,<br />

charming, thrilling adventure read. Orion<br />

There are 18 plants and<br />

animals named after him.<br />

When asked by a reporter<br />

how many degrees he<br />

had*, he said it would be<br />

‘rude to count’. The single<br />

thing that would improve<br />

his quality of life would<br />

be ‘good, workable knees’.<br />

In The Wit and Wisdom<br />

of David Attenborough,<br />

which he has not endorsed<br />

and is not affiliated with,<br />

Chas Newkey-Burden has<br />

put together a fascinating<br />

collection of facts, tributes,<br />

quotes and anecdotes.<br />

Running chronologically,<br />

this book begins with his<br />

early days, to his first job<br />

at the BBC, to eventually<br />

becoming the most<br />

esteemed naturalist on<br />

the planet, as he is today.<br />

The playful world of Eliano<br />

Naturally, babies demand attention. Their cute little hands and feet and precious<br />

smiles can light up any room they’re in. The 9-month-old Eliano Cevin Jr Wymers is no<br />

exception. He is the second-born son of his parents, Ruaan and Nicole Wymers.<br />

Eliano enjoys playing with his big brother Rublique Nicovin Wymers, who is always by<br />

his side, making sure that he is happy.<br />

Baby Eli is known for his funny facial expressions that know no bounds. When he eats<br />

something, when he hears something that catches his attention, and even when he<br />

sees something out of the ordinary, his face will show it.<br />

“He is very smart when it comes to understanding certain things, but don’t let that fool<br />

you... the cunning smile and charm are all part of babies’ manipulation to always get<br />

their way. But who can blame them?” his parents expressed. Eli spends most of his time<br />

with his grandmother who takes care of him when his parents are at work.<br />

“We as the Wymers family love to spend family time over the weekend, such as having<br />

family braais, playing with the dogs, swimming in the pool, fixing things together,<br />

playing games, and travelling to explore new things the world has to offer.”<br />

His father, Ruaan is a qualified Mechanical Engineer and has a passion for rugby, which<br />

he shares with Eliano’s older brother. Nicole enjoys her job as a Human Resource<br />

Administrator but is very passionate about baking, and swimming and loves the<br />

outdoors – much like Eliano. They dream that Eli will be successful in whatever career<br />

path he chooses.<br />

“Eliano, as well as our firstborn, adds phenomenal light to our lives. They are so much<br />

more than just our children, they brighten up our lives every day. We cannot wait<br />

to see them at the end of a long day. They just know how to make you smile when<br />

having a bad day, yet they can be a handful sometimes but that makes it all more<br />

worthwhile. Our two sons are truly angels sent from above. They are our life savers!”<br />

Baby Eli is known for his funny facial<br />

expressions that know no bounds.<br />

Moela’s quest to the<br />

moon!<br />

From the moment she enters the room<br />

until she leaves, this toddler’s energy can<br />

be felt throughout!<br />

Moela Wesi (5) is a toddler described as<br />

a very happy child by influencer mom,<br />

Mosa Wesi. Moela is always eager to learn<br />

new words and discover new things<br />

around her.<br />

Although Moela aspires to be free, her<br />

actual dream job is to be an astronaut.<br />

Mom Mosa mentions that their family’s<br />

love language is talking about the moon<br />

and how she (Moela) intends to fly to the<br />

moon.<br />

Moela’s name derives from the meaning:<br />

‘stream of water’, and was shown to her<br />

mother in a dream so it comes as no<br />

surprise that she developed a profound<br />

love for water by the age of two when<br />

she started swimming.<br />

From the get-go, Moela can be seen as<br />

an independent child and constantly<br />

reminds her parents that she is a “big girl”.<br />

Her parents, Mosa and Maxi, share<br />

that their fondest memory of Moela<br />

was when she took her very first steps.<br />

getitmagazine.co.za/bloemfontein<br />

Coincidentally, however, their proudest<br />

moment was when she broke her leg<br />

at the age of two but showed so much<br />

resilience and strength.<br />

As young as she is, Moela is a teacher!<br />

She has taught her parents to put their<br />

phones down and play with her. This<br />

naturally presents itself as a healthy<br />

opportunity for family quality time.<br />

“Although it gets to me, it reminds me to<br />

be a present parent in my child’s life and<br />

we love Moela more and more every<br />

time for doing just that.”<br />

Ellandri, a golfing legend<br />

on the rise!<br />

The 16-year-old Ellandri van Heerden<br />

has had a passion for golf since a young<br />

age. She is currently 2nd in the 2023<br />

SA Amateur match play event, 2023<br />

WP Nomads Junior Girls international<br />

winner, 2023 Southern Cape Women’s<br />

Open winner, 3rd in the 2023 Zimbabwe<br />

Junior Open and she was selected to<br />

play for South Africa at both the Golf RSA<br />

International Amateur and the R and A<br />

African Amateur in February 20<strong>24</strong>.<br />

According to her, her dad got her into<br />

golf and then saw she had a natural<br />

talent for it.<br />

“I wanted to play professional golf or<br />

to be a golfer and I know I am close<br />

to getting professional. I hope to turn<br />

professional within the next two years,”<br />

she said confidently.<br />

Besides practising her golf swing, she<br />

keeps busy with school life and loves<br />

crocheting and art. “I love to be creative<br />

and everything needs to be colourful,”<br />

says Ellandri.<br />

When asked where she sees herself in<br />

ten years, she says: “Playing on the Ladies<br />

European Tour, with a few wins in the<br />

bag, practising hard and with a purpose<br />

and just not giving up!”<br />

Ellandri’s parents, Elrica and Bertus,<br />

co-owners of Popeye’s Plumbers<br />

in <strong>Bloem</strong>fontein, always knew their<br />

daughter would be a star!<br />

”Looking back on her life I always knew<br />

she would be a success. She is a young<br />

dynamic ball of fire who is energetic and<br />

at the same time empathetic, who puts<br />

the Lord, people, animals and friends<br />

first. She is so dedicated and hardworking,”<br />

says her mom.<br />

“Ellandri was a very colourful and happy<br />

baby since she came into our lives. She<br />

was very clever and inquisitive right from<br />

the start. Being inquisitive led her to<br />

explore many avenues of development,<br />

academics, sports, and culture, which<br />

was part of her chosen paths. We<br />

learned a lot from her and still do to this<br />

day,” her dad adds.<br />

Ellandri’s pool of support includes her<br />

mom, dad and 12-year-old sister Caitlen<br />

as well as her granny Gladys who is the<br />

creator of all of her beautiful golf dresses<br />

and her aunt Ursie who is always there<br />

for her every step of the way.<br />

Both her parents are in full support of her<br />

dreams, no matter what they are. “We<br />

allowed the girls the freedom to be who<br />

they want to be in a very demanding<br />

society,” says Elrica.<br />

“I want her to be happy. The next dream<br />

would be for her to love what she does,”<br />

says her dad.<br />

When asked where they think she’ll be<br />

in the next 10 years, they said: “I know<br />

that she will be a successful player on<br />

the Sunshine Ladies Tour with a LET card.<br />

She will follow her dreams!” her mom<br />

expresses. “Making her dreams come<br />

true and turning professional when she<br />

is ready, to reach every point of success<br />

no matter the sacrifices,” says her dad<br />

with pride.<br />

Born to play!<br />

Born and raised in Thaba Nchu, Sarah Sease is definitely a force to be<br />

reckoned with – a softer, loving and caring force. Her passion and love<br />

for children can be seen right throughout her puppet shows.<br />

I grew up under<br />

the loving care of<br />

my parents and<br />

grandparents, so my<br />

business head was<br />

inspired by my paternal<br />

grandparents and my love<br />

and care for children comes from my maternal<br />

grandparents.”<br />

After matric in 2008, Sarah moved to <strong>Bloem</strong>fontein<br />

to study B Com <strong>Mar</strong>keting at the University of the<br />

Free State. She served at CRC Kids church and that’s<br />

where she met her supportive husband. “We got<br />

married in 2014 and have been blessed with our<br />

two little angels.”<br />

At a very young age, Sarah was bitten by the<br />

storytelling bug and it inspired her to start her<br />

own storytelling business called Papadi Park. “My<br />

grandmother always joked and said that during<br />

one parents’ meeting, the teacher said ‘Sarah speaks<br />

from the morning to the afternoon’.”<br />

Sarah reminisces how easily storytelling has been<br />

for her and how her love for puppets developed<br />

by watching The Muppets. “I remember when my<br />

cousins and I would gather at my grandmother’s<br />

for the school holidays and put on a puppet show.<br />

We would call it the ‘The Ma Big Show’ – that was<br />

our attempt at trying to say “The Muppet Show”.<br />

Sarah’s business falls within the early childhood<br />

development (ECD) industry. Puppetry, storytelling<br />

and music are used to enhance class lessons. This<br />

form of education is called edutainment. She loves<br />

this because a simple lesson has an everlasting<br />

impact on a child. “Our characters mimic the lives<br />

of the children, thereby creating an opportunity for<br />

peer-to-peer teaching. This enables the kids to see<br />

how similar we all are.”<br />

Her business, Papadi Park, enriched Sarah with<br />

the skill of creative and out-of-the-box teaching.<br />

When the time came to build a career, Sarah<br />

went for what felt natural to her: abusiness that<br />

lets her play!; a business that lets her teach while<br />

providing a sustainable income.<br />

Papadi Park visits schools, hospitals, and all sorts<br />

of gatherings of children across the Free State<br />

enabling Sarah and her team of three to meet<br />

many people from different walks of life. “Seeing<br />

how the teachers and children respond to a<br />

talking doll and learning from it, warms my heart<br />

the most.”<br />

But, it is not always just fun and games. Sarah<br />

mentions that their daily puppet shows at schools<br />

are guided by the national curriculum framework<br />

for children from birth to the age of four, as well<br />

as the national curriculum assessment policy<br />

statement for the foundation phase (children<br />

aged 5 to 9).<br />

“Our show scripts are written based on the various<br />

school lessons and themes. At Papadi Park, we<br />

also base our lessons on social issues facing<br />

children and current affairs.<br />

“As fun as playing seems, it tends to get emotional<br />

as well, especially when Papadi Park visits special<br />

little guests at children’s oncology wards. “Illnesses<br />

are not designed to be fun, nothing about it is<br />

designed for playing and to be silly, especially for<br />

young children. Throw on top of it a debilitating<br />

illness and it is just not good.”<br />

When she was first invited to the oncology ward,<br />

she saw children just like any other kiddies who<br />

were excited to see what’s behind the curtain.<br />

She noticed a longing and yearning to play. That’s<br />

Create. Feast. Celebrate.<br />

Introducing Anliri Brown, the creative force behind Ramblers Club<br />

Wedding & Function Venue. She has taken on this role full-time and will<br />

be taking over the reins from her mom, Corlia.<br />


Anliri Brown and her Mom, Corlia Brown<br />

Anliri Brown, Venue Coordinator and Manager at Ramblers Club<br />

Wedding & Function Venue, crafts seamless and unforgettable<br />

events with a keen eye for detail and a passion for creating<br />

memorable experiences. She ensures that every event exceeds<br />

expectations by coordinating all the moving parts involved.<br />

“It starts with planning, deciding on nuances such as the theme<br />

and all the little details that make an event special. Then, there’s coordinating with<br />

vendors, managing schedules, and ensuring everything is set up and ready to go<br />

on the big day. Albeit stressful, the day of the event is my favourite part, seeing how<br />

months of planning come together,” she says.<br />

Anliri’s favourite events are ones where clients give her a blank canvas to let her<br />

creativity flow.<br />

“A really great event isn’t just about a beautiful venue or great food; it’s ultimately<br />

about the experience you create for the guests. Seeing them enjoy themselves<br />

and knowing that I played a part in making it happen is incredibly rewarding,” she<br />

explains.<br />

Selecting the right vendors, Anliri believes is paramount for ensuring the success<br />

of any event. At Ramblers, they partner with esteemed companies in <strong>Bloem</strong>fontein,<br />

chosen based on their positive experiences.<br />

“These vendors are instrumental<br />

in bringing our event visions<br />

to life, whether it’s through<br />

captivating decorations, engaging<br />

entertainment, or seamless<br />

technical support. Through close<br />

collaboration with these trusted<br />

partners, we ensure that every detail<br />

is meticulously attended to, resulting<br />

in unforgettable experiences for our<br />

clients and their guests,” says Anliri.<br />

They take pride in their ability to<br />

create unforgettable experiences, no<br />

matter the occasion. From weddings<br />

to corporate events and celebrations,<br />

the venue surpasses expectations.<br />

“Our venue is adaptable for largescale<br />

music festivals and gatherings<br />

on the rugby field, providing<br />

22 Get It <strong>Bloem</strong>fontein <strong>Mar</strong>ch 20<strong>24</strong> getitmagazine.co.za/bloemfontein

ample space and amenities for<br />

memorable outdoor events,” boasts<br />

Anliri.<br />

What sets them apart is their<br />

unique blend of nostalgia, history,<br />

and old-school charm.<br />

“Our venue exudes a timeless<br />

elegance that captivates guests<br />

from the moment they arrive.<br />

Beyond the ambience, we take<br />

immense pride in our culinary<br />

offerings prepared by Chef Corlia.<br />

Combined with exceptional service<br />

and attention to detail, they stand<br />

out as a premier destination for<br />

events,” Anliri emphasises.<br />

They aim to be a catalyst for<br />

change, offering innovative<br />

concepts that energise the local<br />

event scene.<br />

“There are a multitude of exciting<br />

events on the horizon, from music<br />

and gin festivals to grand balls.<br />

We’re introducing something new<br />

and unheard of in <strong>Bloem</strong>fontein -<br />

an experience set to launch later<br />

Visit ... Paternoster<br />

A trip down to the Cape<br />

West Coast is a real treat<br />

... even more so when<br />

it includes a few days‘<br />

stop-over in Paternoster.<br />

One of the oldest fishing<br />

villages on the West Coast,<br />

it’s all white-washed<br />

fisherman’s cottages and<br />

massive boulders, lobsters<br />

and mussels, jagged cliffs<br />

and gorgeous beaches.<br />

Stay ...<br />

Paternoster is awash with self-catering and guest house accommodation ... our<br />

preference goes hands down to the Gonana Collection. There’s a guesthouse, two<br />

fully-furnished, self-catering houses and an exclusive three-roomed Villa, all part of<br />

the Cape Country Routes collection. And they’ve recently added three self-catering<br />

studios ... the Scallop, Oyster and Mussel studios.<br />

As with the original guesthouse, Paternoster’s first sustainable and environmentally<br />

conscious guesthouse and brainchild of Swedish entrepreneur and interior designer<br />

Jonas Sandström, the trio of studios are rich in detail, exquisite in taste, and above all<br />

else, considerate to the environment. So you’ll be living off-the-grid, with solar panels<br />

providing sustainable energy.<br />

With an Afro-Scandi vibe, the studios have been beautifully thought out, and are<br />

wonderfully comfortable. With one queen bed and sleeper couch, each comfortably<br />

sleeps three - and a pet, since four-legged friends are welcome! The beds are extra<br />

length, with high-quality, 100% organic bedding and pillows, and there’s a neat<br />

compact bathroom with shower.<br />

For those who want to eat in, there’s a fully fitted kitchenette with a gas hob and<br />

all the utensils you could possibly need, and a small dining room table. The studios<br />

have a welcome fruit basket (so appreciated ... we always arrive starving!) and are fully<br />

serviced (no time for making beds on holiday).<br />

There are also two private terraces ... one fully enclosed out back, another at the<br />

front with a braai, both with dining tables and chairs. The studios, set just one road<br />

back and about 50 metres from the beach, overlook the small, secluded indigenous<br />

garden. For lazy afternoons, there are recliners for relaxed sunbathing and there are<br />

private, outdoor showers. If you visit in Winter, make sure you try the Kolkol – a South<br />

African made, four-seater spa bath-type tub heated by wood fire, hidden in the<br />

garden between the fynbos.<br />

The only thing you won’t find is a television ... thank heaven, since this is a spot to<br />

relax, unwind, snooze, read, chat, explore. Just lovely!<br />

26 Get It <strong>Bloem</strong>fontein <strong>Mar</strong>ch 20<strong>24</strong> getitmagazine.co.za/bloemfontein

Play ...<br />

Loads of activities in and around the village ... hikes and<br />

cycling tracks through the Columbine Reserve, horse<br />

riding on the beach, and scenic kayaking trips ... spot<br />

the dolphins, seals, penguins and, in winter, whales. The<br />

greatest fun of all is the WoweBikes tour. It’s brilliant for<br />

the whole family, and you don’t have to be particularly<br />

fit, either ... we had one seasoned, ultra-fit mountain bike<br />

rider in our party, and then the complete opposite ... unfit,<br />

hadn’t been on a bike for 50 years, and no balance or<br />

co-ords at all. A three minute (wobbly) test around the car<br />

park, then off to the beach for an hour-and-a-half coast<br />

line ride. Massively enjoyable, and easy peasy ... particularly<br />

once the not-a-bike-rider discovered the accelerator<br />

button, and raced along, passing all! There’s the beach<br />

option and a Cape Columbine tour, which meanders<br />

through the nature reserve, past Tieties Bay (depending<br />

on who you chat to, named after a well-known fisherman<br />

Jacob Titus, who drowned there, or from the massive<br />

smooth round boulders on the beach and in the sea) and<br />

up to the lighthouse (built in 1936, it’s perched on Castle<br />

Rock, and is open for visitors to climb ... views from the top<br />

take in the whole of the village).<br />

Eat ...<br />

Paternoster is home to some sensational restaurants<br />

- including Wolfgat (a tiny spot that boasts being<br />

awarded Restaurant of the Year at the World Restaurant<br />

Awards in Paris in 2019), Voorstrandt (sitting right on the<br />

beach in an historic red and green house), De See Kat<br />

(on the water’s edge ... build your own seafood platter<br />

... brilliant) and the incredible, can’t-miss-it Leeto at The<br />

Strandloper (amazing chilled views over the beach<br />

and ocean, first class service and fine, fine dining ... the<br />

Spring Risotto’s worth travelling for). For a hippy vibe,<br />

hit the Noisy Oyster, where there’s a fun, flirty menu in<br />

a bright arty garden setting; for those travelling with<br />

children, The Waffle Wharf is tremendous ... breakfast<br />

waffles, savoury versions and dozens and dozens of<br />

sweet, sweet options too.<br />

For guests at the studio who don’t want to make<br />

breakfast, you can select to have breakfast at the<br />

guesthouse, a short walk away.<br />

Info ...<br />

Rates for Oyster studio from R1950 per couple<br />

per night, R300 for children 1 to 18. Breakfasts at<br />

guesthouse additional R150 per person.<br />

We’d buy this just to have the bottle front and centre on our dressing table.<br />

Too gorgeous for words. Luckily Bella Tropicale by Oscar de la Renta lives up to its<br />

looks ... a glorious floral fruity fragrance with notes of pineapple and coral reef, followed<br />

by ylang-ylang, orange blossom and coconut water, finishing with sea notes, musk,<br />

sandal and tonka bean. R1425 from DisChem.<br />
