The economic crisis resulted in tough times for many people. Not least, a number of people living in Australia who lost their jobs. For others it wasn't that critical, but financial difficulties did mean having to tighten the belt a little.

By anyone's standards the year 2009 was a tough one for the Richardson-Mills family after Tony was retrenched in November 2008. But talking to his wife Robyn, I am truly inspired by this family and the way that they came together to find innovative ways to increase their income – even down to driving a taxi, in Robyn's case – and also to limit their spending.

Must Do, Must See, Must Taste…

While in Paarl

Paarl takes its name from the granite domes of the Paarl Mountains, which loom above the town – paarl is Dutch for ‘pearl'. The first farmers settled there in 1687, two years after the founding of Stellenbosch.

Romantic Getaway

I was thoroughly spoiled recently when my husband whisked me away for an overnight break, leaving the kids with my mom, who was visiting from South Africa. Our surprise destination was Witches Falls Cottages on Tamborine Mountain, Queensland where we found everything we needed for an awesome romantic getaway.

Melbourne's laneways are her arteries, filled with people, who are the life-blood of the city.

Home to coffee shops, art galleries and boutique shopping, they attract tourists and locals alike. And when the sun goes down, that's when they really come to life! Bars, nightclubs and al fresco restaurants appear out of the shadows to replace the daytime traffic.

I've stood many times at airports watching people come and go. Some are arriving after travelling many hours to see loved ones; some are saying goodbye and wondering when they will ever see each other again; some are going home, some coming home; some are laughing, many are crying.

This month sees the start of the first round of the South African Idols auditions, which are due to be broadcast in July. It's the first season that I won't be part of after having been on board as a judge from the very start in 2002.

When I arrived in Melbourne seven years ago I immediately fell in love with the city. Like Cape Town, it is a delightful mix of old and new, has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and is very cosmopolitan – well, not quite as cosmopolitan as Cape Town, but close! It is a city vibrant with art, music, drama and architecture, both old and new, and has the deserved title of the fashion capital of Australia. I have been exploring the alleys, streets and open spaces of Melbourne for seven years now, my camera always on hand, and I still find new sources of delight every time. This is one of my favourite cities – right up there with Cape Town and Lisbon. It is a city of delights, cosy coffee shops, a vast variety of restaurants, pubs, plenty of parks and green open spaces; a city to enjoy living in.

“All things pass. You can view it as death and mourn, or you can allow the winds of change to dance about your feet and celebrate…”

How many of you have found your work environment has changed in some way in the last 12 months? Have you found it challenging? Have you noticed that others have found it challenging?

Bake your cake and eat it

Have a look at the ingredients in supermarket cakes and you might find the extensive list quite frightening.

Some supermarket cakes contain more than 20 additives, which can be used to disguise many poor quality ingredients such as palm oil instead of butter and cheaper apples instead of raspberries in jam fillings, according to research by Choice, the consumer advocacy group.

Getting a new puppy is an exciting time. Here are some tips to help things go as smoothly as possible:

1. Start out right. Know what breed or type of dog you want. Many factors, including personal preferences, influence this. Consider what breed suits you best, for example. Match your ability to exercise them versus how much exercise they need, and consider your financial position.
