WALKIES AT THE VLEI

My little wire-haired fox terrier, Teddie, comes to the FEAT sock shop with me everyday, and is really one of the best "sales people" when it comes to selling funky socks. As soon as customers see her standing at the gate looking out with her fluffy, wagging tail, they're instantly drawn in to say hello and inevitably buy some colourful socks once inside. The problem is that despite greeting customers and running back and forth to them with her ball, her energy levels stay high as a kite all day long.

GIRLS SUPPORT GIRLS

If you're a woman, you'll likely know the joy of female friendships. Welcoming your friend in for tea, to chat about life and catch-up about relationships, work and exciting new developments, or simply processing some of life's challenges together and gaining advice and wisdom from one another, is one of the beautiful things about being a woman. There's nothing quite like knowing you have the love and support of your close friends. And there's something quite unique about the feedback a friend like this can give...loaded with equal measures of honesty and kindness, empathy and love. I'm not sure if any of you remember the cutest little cousin duo, Sophia Grace (8) and Rosie (5) who became internet famous in...
