21 Questions

I’ve done quite a few of these before, so if you’re bored, you can read some of them herehere; here; here and here.

I was tagged by my (yes, she’s mine!!!) Jane to complete this, so here goes:


1. What is your current fashion obsession? I *finally* found a plain, dark grey, hooded dress. On my birthday! I’ve been looking for one, for years. I had a white one in like 2002 and LOVED it.

2. What are you wearing today? Berry coloured tracksuit pants, sneakers and a Simpsons top.

3. Hair? Is mad. I like it. 

4. Do you nap a lot? I dream of that. Haha.

5. Why is today special? It’s the day after my 35th birthday, and I woke up with my kid, dog and boyfriend all cuddled up with me. Best way to wake up.

6. What would you like to learn to do? I’m going to write my learner’s license to drive soon. It’s on my list.

7. What’s for dinner today? Whatever I can whip up between working. Today’s a work day for me

8. What are you listening to right now? The wind. No, really, it’s one of those chilly winter days that are made for soups and cuddling.

9. What is your favourite weather? If I have stuff to do outside my home, please let it be sunny. Otherwise, let’s couch it while it rains outside.

10. What’s the last thing you bought? That grey hooded dress. Hehe.

11. What are your essentials when traveling? Phone, charger, wallet and glasses.

12. What’s your style? I call it “Thank the stars, this was ironed”

13. What is your most challenging goal right now? Good question. I guess not giving in to laziness. It’s very tempting right now.

14. If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be? I know the exact spot. It’s in Durban and overlooks the ocean.

15. Favourite vacation spot? Give me a swimming pool, sweet place to stay and  my family, and I’ll go anywhere.

16. Name the things you cannot live without? Things? Nah. Those are transient. I need only my family (furry members included) and maybe WiFi. 😛

17. How was your childhood? Unconventional, enlightening and comforting.

18. What would you like to have in your hands right now? My kid’s hand (obviously, still attached to her person) and a Chai Latte.

19. What are you most excited for? Discovering new things.

20. If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? I’d pop in to see my kid. Hehe.

21. Which countries have you visited? I don’t travel well. haha. No really, I’ve never left SA and have zero travel bug. None.

I’m supposed to tag people in this, but instead I want to tag some of the people who’ve done this so far, so you can read about them too (here’s the thing – they’re pretty darn cool). So, here goes: Jane; Sandy; Brett and Fay.


The random thought becomes a meme.

Just mulling over my to-do list. GAH. I have many a random thought though.

So, here they are…my random thoughts for the week:

Word for the week in my head is junkpunch. Heh. As in If I have to hear your stupid arse whining one more time in my life, I am going to junkpunch you into your next incarnation.

Thought for the week in my head is the legacy continues. You actually have to be Larcy to understand what that means.

Thing for the week in my life is liquorice. I have a mild to moderate to maximum addiction to it.

Song for the week in my head is not that frigging anke ditty please for the love of all the pretty things in the world could you get that shit out of my head. No, no, song for the week is Good – Better Than Ezra. Purely because I saw the girls this weekend and it sums up that time of my life for me. Specifically Sarah saying “uhoh” and then ‘purging pink’. You have to actually be Seh to understand what that means.

Food for the week in my belly is dinner. I loved cooking dinner with Cameron last night. Full-scale, unabated, roast potatoes and everything-type dinner. Haven’t done that in a while (don’t call the police on me yet, we do actually eat!). We just hadn’t for a while, had a full-on dinnery type meal with sitting down and not doing eighteen things simultaneously. I forgot how much I love feeding people. I never thought I’d grow up to be like my mom in that regard.

Colour for the week in my life is red. Because that’s what we chose! Waha.

Smile for the week on my face is person. For being a mutual-stalking, crack-me-up, no bullshit divinely-handed you.

Blessing for the week in my heart is that the Universe chose me to be mama to someone so unbelievably alive and unforgivingly herself.
