10 things about me

25 Things | HarassedMom

How is this heat we are experiencing in Gauteng at the moment. Yesterday at about 15h30 my phone said it was FORTY DEGREES! FORTY!! At THREE THIRTY! I think it is the reason my kids have all gone a bit mad and I have been battling super low blood pressure. Hopefully there will be a storm soon to cool it down somewhat.

Just for fun and because I haven’t done one of these in a while I thought I would do a 25 things you don’t know about me post that I found here.

1. I’m happiest when…I am with my family.

2. …Especially if it… we are doing something everyone enjoys!

3. I’ve always wanted to… travel Africa and write a book. (the two are unrelated)

4. My family and I… function as a team, we are a crazy bunch but have loads of crazy fun.

5. I was a terrible… student. I worked too hard on getting my opinions heard and not hard enough on my actual assignments.

6. My first job was… working as a waitress at my aunts restaurant, I was 13.

7. I could probably eat pasta, cheese, pizza, chips everyday. I am not in a good space with food at the moment. 

8. I stole… little badges of jeans at Foschini when I was about 10/11 I think. My mother found them when we arrived home.

9. I was born on the same day as… the Titanic sank.

10. My all-time favorite film is… Dead Poets Society followed closely by all the Transformer movies.

11. I do a pretty mean… homemade gluten free bread.

12. I’m still mad… my brother broke my flower fairy princess.

13. I met my husband… on Twitter. Yip really!

14. I always knew I wanted…do something that involved writing.

15. I’m not afraid to… dig stuff out of the toilet if I need to!

16. I make the best… chicken curry!

17. I have almost no… Flexibility. It’s sad.

18. I always cry when… I see someone else cry. Doesn’t matter if I know them or not, if people are crying I cry.

19. I’m (now) married, but I think I’ll always identify most with being a single mom..

20. I spent 10 years… working in a soul destroying corporate job.

21. I wish my folks… Lived closer to me. (copied this from the original post because it is true for me as well)

22. At 5, I wanted to be a princess.

23. I believe if everyone just minded their own business the world would be a better place.

be kind to others

24. I can’t stand… TRAFFIC!!!!!

25. Whenever Big Bang is on, I’ll watch it.

    You are not flexible and doing Yoga? There is hope for me! 😉
    Also very surprised that you met David on Twitter. Maybe you should tell the story sometimes?
