Thank you for stopping by. My name is Dianne and I am the author and owner of Chad Life Us. I am the mother of two beautiful boys - Chad who was almost 13 when I started this blog and is now 17 and Clinton who died tragically at the age of 17. I live with my life partner Mark. I run the admin side of his business and have worked for him for the past 14 years. I worked from home for many years, but now work full time and am far more involved in the day to day running of the business. We have four dogs; a cat who is getting very old; budgies and fish. A real menagerie of Animals , who are not only our pets, but a big part of our family.

I live in a suburb that falls under the Greater City of Johannesburg. I was born and grew up in Johannesburg, but moved down to the Natal South Coast during my last year of school. I lived in Durban for a few years where I did my nurses training and then moved back to Johannesburg. I would love to move back to the far South Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal, known as the Hibiscus coast, but that is just a dream waiting to come true.

I am no Crafter or Fashionista just a mother blogging about our journey through life. A mother trying to make sense of the blow life has dealt me. This is a personal journey blog about my life grieving for my one son whilst trying to give my other son a half decent happy life that he deserves. Life is a journey full of heartache and happiness; tragedy and blessings; good and evil; tears and laughter; frowns and smiles and this is our journey. The journey of our lives - what works for us as a family and what doesn't. Our favourite recipes; our favourite restaurants and places of interests. Holidays, birthdays and weekends away. Teenage boy's clothing; pretty things, opinions and reviews. This Is Why I Blog.

I am an animal lover and upholder of the law, especially the rules of the road; A firm believer that there is no such thing as a minor traffic offence - the irony of it all is that a so called "minor" traffic offence destroyed my life and family. I am a hater of hypocrisy and double standards. A hater of child abuse and animal abuse. I am almost typical Aquarius - except life happened and changed that too. I despise change, but shy away from routine, does that make sense - not at all, but then not much makes sense in my life.

I am a boys mom and not a girly mom at all. I wear make up and do my nails and try and look after my skin, but by default I like camping, caravans and cars; boats, bikes and bicycles. Being a mom to boys came naturally, but there are times that I prefer my own company and being on my own so that suits being in a male dominated family.
