Random Things About Me:

I still have my tonsils and appendix

I am so clumsy! I have developed lightning fast reflexes and usually catch whatever I’ve dropped or knocked over before it hits the floor.

I don’t have a favourite colour. I like all colours in their own right.

We have 3 cats; Magic, Jac and Katryn. Our cats are our furbabies and we love them dearly.

When I was younger I was a professional fire dancer. I’m very out of practice now.

My favourite food is sushi…the only thing I like more than sushi is lots of sushi.

I love travelling around South Africa and finding new little towns to visit. As soon as the boys are big enough I want to do a trip down the West Coast.

I’ve travelled a lot so far and have been to the USA, Brazil, England, Australia, Italy, Austria, Mozambique, Botswana, and Namibia. I love overseas adventures and would love to visit the Orient and Pacific rim.

Baglios pistachio icecream is my favourite treat. I haven’t found any other place that makes as good pistachio icecream. Not even in Italy.

My mom and my mother-in-law have the same name. My brother-in-law’s wife and I share the same name. My family is English and my in-laws are Afrikaans.

I’m half deaf…it drives Dear Wife nuts!

Questions
1.If you were to have unlimited funds for a themed birthday party, what would the theme be and why? A dress up punk rock cabaret party that I had planned for my 30th and never got to have due to having 1 month old twins. I would have it somewhere fun like the Bioscope or the Victory theatre.
2.What is your fantasy job and why?
Being a homeopath, working half day and spending the other half of the day with my children.
3.What is your ultimate favourite β€œme” thing to do?
Going for a pedicure! I love pedicures.
4.What is your favourite item of clothing? I have a Ginger Mary dress that always makes me feel pretty. It is a perfect feel good outfit.
5.If you were offered an extreme makeover, would you do it – if not, why? If so, what would you change about your appearance?
Tough one! I might but all I would want is Lasik eye surgery, and to drop 15kg.
6.Summer or Winter? Why? Winter! I hate being hot. At least in winter there are things you can do to warm up. In summer there is only so much clothing you can take off without being rude.
7.Have you ever met someone famous? Who and when? I was photographed with some or other famous band in Durban once. Can’t remember who they were though…I didn’t even know they were famous. Oops.
8.What is your most cherished item? Not particularly sentimental about physical stuff. If I had to grab stuff out a burning house first would be my boys and cats, then my wedding photos…after that…I’m not sure.
9.What is your greatest fear? Losing my wife!
10.What motivates or inspires you? There is no greater motivator for me than a deadline. Beauty inspires me…every day.
11.How many pairs of shoes do you own!?
I don’t know? Four that I wear regularly, about 30 in total.
