about me

My photo
Married to Nick for 13 years, with 2 children; Sabrina - 12 and Dominic - 11. I am a girlfriend through and through in that I love girly things and anything that celebrates the essence of being a woman. I love vintage, shabby chic, the country and try my best to do my bit for the environment. SO yes...we have 3 bins in our house and try our best to recycle! I believe that with everything in life, the closer we stick to nature, the better off we'll be. I would love to have a balance in life, but have learnt that balance is not always possible, so strive for significance instead, in the hopes that that will be just as meaningful, and the rest will hopefully follow.

EiSH - I've been tagged!

Ok so thanks Tracy for tagging me....I always say, nothing like some warm and fuzzy stuff to get us to know one another better!

1. ) Numero UNO…..…I….HATE…..the….COLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My dh “PREPARES” the rooms in our home with blow heaters, moving them from place to place, so that his dw can be comfortable….eish …he’s a keeper hey!!!! No jokes, I would rather LICK PAINT than be cold…I’m MISERABLE, MISERABLE in the cold – YEUCH! Yes, yes I know, that’s why you call me GHECKO Linnie loo!

2. ) I dress according to how I’m feeling that day: serious, chic and focused demands BLACK – happy and bubbly and free to be me, calls for PINK, unsure and wistful calls for BLUE - I even have a “HAPPY RING”…it cost me R15 bucks from the FAIRY FACTORY, and is ALWAYS a topic of conversation, and truthfully, I am ALWAYS happy when I wear it. Hmmm maybe fashion is my way of expressing myself, and I NEVER ever wonder what people will think of me…doesn’t even cross my mind…I say this because I so often hear people say…but won’t this look funny, and I say…and so?? WHO CARES!!!!!!

3. ) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Hello Kitty!!!!!! I don’t think many people who know me (including my children’s teachers!) don’t know that I think she is one cool cat! ....and..oh..i don't know if I should print this, ....eish.....I now have a "Boeremusiek" ringtone on my mobile phone...there..I SAID IT!! I know, I know!!!!!!!!...it was late, we'd all had too much to drink(all of 2 savannah's)...and I got it from another Englishman!!!!

4. ) I’m deep…LOL! LOL! LOL!...and you guys are thinking….”Is it!!!...- really??” What can I say, matters of the heart “MATTER” to me…and I like and respect people who aren’t scared to show and share the real them with others.

5. ) I tickle my children every single day of their lives, without fail, AND THEY LOVE IT!!!!!!!…and beg for more…

6. ) I really can laugh at myself (and LOVE people who can do the same!!), have a wicked sense of humour – no it’s sick…truly!! (my brother and I suffer from the same afflictions so it must be a genetic/medical condition - eish), and am the person who can’t hold their laughter in, in places like the lift…WHY me?????....

7. ) I don’t wear a watch on principle – to remind me not to take life too seriously, and to live my life by the clock..UGHH!

My seven (ok flip, some of my buddies have already been tagged, and for those of you who weren't, you are now...eish sorry 4 that!.....)..oh and Ronda, best you get your A into G Flower, blog RECIPES if you have to!!!

  1. Hi Beryldene. It was so enjoyable reading all these personal things about you ... and what an interesting person you are ... and I am sure people just love to be around you all the time.

    Thank you so much for tagging me, but I have done the same tag game not so long ago and hope you don't mind me not taking part this time. I am sure you will understand.

    Keep up the very interesting writing ... you should really think about writing a book of some sorts!!!

  2. ok so i did the tagged questions - but sadly dont have anyone to tag - so it stops with me i am afraid

    missing you lots

  3. Ok, the Boeremusiek thing disturbs me ... I may not sleep tonight ... why not pass it on to someone else???? hint ... hint ... not to me ... eeeek ....

    I also NEVER wear a watch - I don't want to be reminded about ever-fleeting time ...

    Thanks so much for playing along - it's fun getting to know you and I also think we were separated at birth - except for the Boeremusiek thing - I want not part of that!!! (tee hee).

    Love, Tracy
