Short about me…

I wrote this text with the hope of getting selected as a “blogger” on someone-else’s (more famous) blog. But I didn’t…so instead of throwing it in the trash. I’m publishing it on my blog.

Know… 

Stop worrying about what other people think or say about you – they are usually too busy worrying about what other people think or say about them.

Love… 

My son’s laughter.  Early morning walks with my daschounds.  The sky before thunder.  To freeze the world with my Nikon D90.  Modern design mixed with old and torn.  The simple beauty of nature –  we are so spoiled.

Read… 

Everything from blogs (Miss Moss, Wolfeyebrows, Lucky Pony etc.) to the Economist.  On my bedside table you will find: Oryx and Crake (Margaret Atwood), Never wipe tears without gloves (Jonas Gardell), and a comic book about North Korea, Pyongyang – A journey in North Korea (Guy Delisle).  I love comic books – I remember when I read Maus (1&2) for the first time, it is still one of my favourite books.

Want… 

More time!  I have so many ideas and so much I want to do.  I want to develop my blog and start my own web design business.  I want to make beautiful jewelry and one day hang my first painting on someone’s wall.  I want to continue developing the mentorship-program for the girls at Ikageng (orphanage in Soweto, SA) and hopefully make a difference in their lives.

Wear… 

A pair of Converse that you can easily throw in the washing machine and my city shorts (out of reach for dirty paws and sticky little hands).  I always wear fun nail polish – bright orange, bubble gum pink or – as I’m wearing now – light blue.  I love high heels but still prefer flats if I go clubbing.

Need… 

I need someone to kick my butt.  Someone who don’t accept that I’m lazy.  I need Rafa – my tennis coach.  After not playing for nearly fifteen years, I picked up my racket two years ago (whilst being pregnant!) and still going strong!  I’m addicted.
