My Questions To Be Answered:

Do you have a program that you watch that you know is absolutely terrible but you can’t help but watch it, just to see how bad it is?

I have a firm belief in the TLC channel, which I can have on 24 hours a day, but my ultimate guilty secret is 16 and Pregnant and teen Moms…….and here’s the bad part of it, every time the Mom gives birth I cry…like proper oh my gosh big sloppy tears and *hiccup hiccup* its just so beautiful when they see their babies for the first time and oh my…..and then….well and then I watch Teen Mom to see how they manage and sometimes I get all mad and just about scream profanity at the t.v. because they are doing such a shit job, even though I was sobbing my way through their babies birth!

Do you do gas or electric heating?  Or are you blessed with a fireplace?  (If you have a fire place don’t even tell me, I might just die of jealousy).

We have none of the above, our flat is so small that when we put the oven on in the kitchen to cook, it heats up the lounge. Just kidding…or am I…??? I have a mortal fear of gas….I cannot tell you the fear of God that goes through me when someone starts cranking the ol gas heater and clicking that ignition switch…I just…I just have visions of flames bursting forward and mass explosions and that jazz because I am a total drama queen phobic.

Do you know about this thing called “sleep”?  Can you tell me more about it?

I heard about sleep about 4 years ago…I’ve not really got any real inkling of what real sleep feels like anymore. I dunno, sometimes I look at the kid sleeping and I’m like ‘Oh, so thats what they are talking about.’ – two hours later MOM I’M THIIIIRRRSSTTTYYYY! Thats as good an explanation as you are going to get I’m afraid. The only time I get about 15 minutes grace is in Winter time when maam has kicked off all her blankets and crawled into bed with me to warm herself up….15-20 mins max lie in!

If you could eat the same thing everyday for the rest of your life what would it be?

Bacon. Bacon. Bacon

What do you do with all your “donkeys”?  (Loose change that you can’t really use?)

I never even knew they were called donkeys,actually at the end of each month I empty my trashbag ( read: handbag that belongs to a Mom with a young child) and I’ve actually managed once to collect, I shit you not R200 in loose change. Sometimes I might even randomly throw it across the room or hide it in pockets….that is the reason I was able to do a pick n pay shop with R200 in coins…..I know you’re thinking ‘OH NO SHE DIDNT’….’OH YES I DID!!!!!’

If you don’t/didn’t have a partner, which famous celeb would you want to date?

This is a tough one, I think I would like to go on one date with George Clooney and have a Nespresso with him…but I think this comes from the fact that he looks so hot in all those Nespresso billboards and I’m driving and there he is and I’m all like ‘ Hells yeah might fine George…and double yeah for the coffee!!!’ As for dating, I have no idea, Jamie Oliver would be kinda cute to be dating.

Which celebrity do I think I look like?

My other half keeps telling me that I look like the red head from the mentalist…I dont know if thats a good or a bad thing..

Random Facts About Me

  1. I dont eat anything that comes from the sea…point blank, if you so much as put anything from the Sea on my plate, I can guarantee that I’m going to done some heave duty gloves and fish-slap you with a giant raw salmon!
  2. Nautical Stripes..stripes…stripes on men…..oh lordy…Im cray-cray about stripes!
  3. I am tactile defensive, aka…I cant handle certain textures, I don’t like the feeling of cream on my skin or wool..it makes me CRINGE and make that odd kkkggrrrrrrr shiver sound!
  4. I never ever sleep with socks on…I always have to give my feet freedom because when I am in bed I swear my feet are telling me they can’t breathe, they are suffocating and trapped and they need to be set free,
  5. I do sketching as a hobby, I really enjoy it and would like to get into it as in doing it a lot more, perhaps even a bit of selling but I lack a lot of confidence in that department.
  6. At the top of my list of foods most foul aside from anything from the sea…melon and papaya win hands down, if you want to make me gag just coz you need a good laugh, let me catch a whiff of the paw-paw!
  7. I am usually quite cynical, In fact lets just let it all out – I have a sense of humour that is quite dark and a cynicism that some find amusing – I also label my moods as sad panda, angry bird, tired bear etc….I struggle to take things seriously. I somehow get the feeling I should now admit that I do not belong in the body of a person whos going to be thirty next year…. I still crack up when I tell Lily the joke ‘ Whats green and hangs on trees? Giraffe Snot!’

Little Miss Independence

The day I took this photo and uploaded it onto my computer, something instinctual told me that I had somehow bred a little Diva – albeit the sweetest little diva I have ever come across ( We are not going all Honey Boo Boo on you) and lately it has occured to me that my sweet little person has an infinitely better social and apparent myriad of boyfriends and now husbands than I can count on my hands- or rather attribute to myself.

Exhibit A:

This is little Miss Independence riding her bicycle this weekend, kids got guts, you should see the way she takes those corners, but the part that near sent me into a fit of hysterics was this:

Miss Lily: Mom, people are going to see a beautiful girl riding on a beautiful bike!

I love you poppet and yes you are absolutely correct, you and your bling bike are ridiculously beautiful.

Exhibit B:

Miss Lily Ballerina Princess Fifa Lalabelle.

Kids got it – hands down when I saw this picture, I knew she was destined for dramatic arts ( Note to self, Drama school) Look at those poise and elegance. She actually went for professional ballet photos for class the other day and there I was thinking this was one of the proper posed ones – nope, apparently she was kitted out full tutu, fairy wings and a tiara and I am getting those photos this week – I can literally not wait to see how they turn out!

Exhibit C:

I asked madam if I could take a photo of her, this was her instant response : Blue Steel.

There is a small tiny part of me that is terrified that this is epically early duck face days, but I am going to go with Blue Steel for now, kids got it!

Exhibit D:

When you got it, you got.

What is there not to love about this Diva Princess???

Did I mention she got ‘married’ last week! We were chatting about school and she mentions that her latest boyfriend Blakey had left for Canada so that day she decided to marry Jordan. It was quite a ceremony I believe, she told me that they had to hold hands and she even sat next to him.

I really hope that he knows what hes in for, this is one little in demand Princess!
