1. My first language is Afrikaans.
  2. I hate raw tomatoes, but I do like gherkins. Whenever we buy burgers, hubby takes the tomato off mine and I take the gherkins off his. It works out well.
  3. I wear orthopedic insoles for my dodgy turned-in ankles.
  4. Hubby and I met on the internet 12 years ago. Next month will be our 10 year wedding anniversary.
  5. My favourite drink is English Breakfast tea with soy milk.
  6. One of my subjects in High School was pottery.
  7. I stole a postcard from the Vatican City. It wasn’t on purpose – really, who in their right mind would steal at the Vatican City?! The layout of the gift shop is part gift shop and part post office, with tills allocated to each section. We didn’t know that  so when I got to the post office part and paid for my postcard and stamp, they only charged me for the stamp but I only realised that after posting the postcard. Honestly, it was a mistake!
  8. I would love to have a Golden Retriever, but can’t as our house and garden is too small. His name would be Chutney.
  9. My green iPod Nano is engraved with “You rock my world” – it was a gift from hubby.
  10. I’m irresistibly drawn to milk jugs in any size.  Small ones like the one from DovieMoon‘s Etsy shop or bigger ones filled with flowers like the yellow one from MyFrenchCottage Etsy shop. They seem so innocent and perfectly shaped for their function. I think it has to do with point no. 6 and the idea that in the good old days people really decantered milk into jugs – before modern conveniences like Tetrapack and long life milk. Milk jugs, doilies and granny squares seem to go together for me (and you know how I feel about crochet!)

P.S. I got the idea for this post from Messy La – a lovely, creative young lady from Scotland. She also has an Etsy shop, selling beautiful cards and christmas wreaths.
