Welcome back to old friends and a big warm welcome to any new readers, peeps and followers. It is an honour and a great pleasure to have you tag along my lil dot of the universe.
Remember the game tagged that we played as kids?
Well, I have been tagged by Tina from the The Enchanted Home (click to view the post in which she was tagged...so cool to get to know her). She set the questions for the next
eleven bloggers which she tagged. What fun and I am delighted to have been tagged.
So here goes, Tina's questions and my answers...
1. Do you have a hobby? Tell me about it, if not tell me a hobby you wish you had!
I have a wide range of interests so...
I am an avid gardener and lie awake at night dreaming up planting combinations!!
I am also trying to get to known my camera better and am developing a strong interest in photography and of course, living in Cape Town, there is a never ending source of inspiration.
Blogging has become a large part of my life and I am looking forward to doing more on my blog about Cape Town.
I love love food and wine and so cooking and visiting wine estates is high on my "to do " list.
And, I also have an insatiable addiction to magazines....sshhh. I have ones dating back to the year dot and they all get filed in seasons for ease of reference. Any known cure?
Oh no! You can't ask me that... I love both...I wanna be both, please... I won't be able to design anything worth while if I don't have something fab to eat and drink..
The Table is Life!!
The Kitchen , of course!!!
and....my formal lounge, where I usually sneak away to with a magazine and my cup of tea....
5. Tell me which 2 famous people you would choose to have dinner with (dead or alive)
Desmond Tutu and The Dalai Lama
What a feast for my soul and what a great laugh I will have with those two pals at the same table!
Gosh, this is not easy....um...
compassionate, hospitable, motherly, humorous...
My son said...just!
Roots by Alex Hailey... I just had to re read it again... and The Night Jasmine Man by David Lambkin
Brown paper packages with treats that I got from my gran.
Goodness me, there are a few options...ummm.... I would love to be James Bond... not to drink martinis, but to jump out of aeroplanes, drive in ridiculously fast cars, deep sea dive, ski, cruise on a yacht all in the space of a day. Oh and to play with all those amazing gadgets...Best to keep the emergency services on speed dial!!
Perhaps, Christiane Amanpour is a better option, I deeply admire her spunk and would love to throw some tricky questions at a few politicians and watch them squirm!
Stumble out of bed, kettle on, fling open the patio door and greet the birds while I wait for the kettle to boil. Enjoy my first cuppa in my pj's and listen to the birds and have my quiet time.
Take myself and my very large basket off to the Neighbour Goods Market and stock up on fresh tuna, vegetables, cheeses, preserves, bread , wine , etc. Camera in hand to snap the parade of people and food. Stop of at the bookstore and stock up on all the wonderful overseas design magazines ( which are too expensive to buy here :( )
Home with my bounty...
Lay out a cheese and fruit board for lunch next to the pool.
Place myself firmly in a lounger with my notebook and tags, yes I know it is weird, but that is how I read magazines!!
Camera within reach to shoot the birds if they venture close enough and slowly work my way through all that eye candy.
Long candle lit bath and cocktails at The Grande on Granger Bay...
Dinner will be sushi at Sevruga's in the Waterfront and then some Jazz at The Green Dolphin...
A walk on the beach
Home and my soft possessive duvet.....
The beautiful city of Prague please. I would be seriously snap happy with my Canon there!
