Fatherhood and bunnies.

It's been a while since I've written a blog about fatherhood, but how can I resist after a long weekend of chocolate bunnies... and more chocolate bunnies.

I think as adults we get a little jaded and forget how special and how much fun events like Christmas and Easter are for kids. My girls woke up at the crack of a sparrow's fart on Sunday morning to go Easter egg hunting.


The race was on. Who would get the hidden eggs first... my girls, the chihuahuas or the human sized ants at Harties? The damn ants are so big I think they can be used for human organ transplants.

But neither the flesh eating ants, nor my pint size pooches could come between my girls and chocolate. Within minutes Tayla-Jean and Alyssa had scooped up about 40 Lindt bunnies and we now have a cupboard full of chocolate rabbits. Which is not good for me... 2 glasses of wine in the evening and I'm on the hunt for the golden foiled creatures from heaven. Nicole usually hides the choccies from me, but there's only so much hiding you can do when there's a rabbit farm in your kitchen.

I would say it's easy to burn off the extra calories, but I'm currently boycotting my medical aid's attempt to get me to run a friggin' marathon every morning at a "vigorous pace" so that I don't have to pay for my Apple Watch. I'll pay for the watch rather than give myself another bloody heart attack pretending to be Usain Bolt in my suburb.

But there again, eating too many Lindt bunnies probably doesn't help matters.

In other news, I'll be helping out quite a bit on Hot 919's Afternoon Drive Show over the next few weeks. My good friend Sash is on and off as he is busy with another project, so Disi and I will be keeping you company as you navigate the Jo'burg traffic home. Lock on if you can!


And staying with Hot 919FM. A big welcome to Kia Fourways who become the new vehicle sponsor of The Mark Pilgrim Show on Saturdays. Great to have Chris and the team on board!
