About Me


About me. I’m pretty new to blogging and many of my visitors have never met me, so inspired by one of my favourite bloggers, MrsDPlus3 who once wrote a similar post, I thought I would open up and share a few things about me…




  1. I am crazy about cats.
  2. I don’t like the taste of fresh strawberries – they are totally overrated.
  3. I am a qualified nurse and midwife.
  4. I was born in Zimbabwe and have also lived in South Africa and Indonesia.
  5. I married my best friend.
  6. I am terrified of snakes – yes even the harmless ones. It’s something to do with the way they move and their shifty eyes.
  7. I suffered from post-natal depression.
  8. I’d like to believe in reincarnation because I can’t believe our souls have only one chance to make a difference on earth.
  9. I love to be creative – painting and art journaling, but never seem to have enough time.
  10. The highlight of my work day is reading to the children in our school and unpacking new books for our library.
  11. I am a dreamer and reading is my way of escaping reality.
  12. I am not a morning person.
  13. I love coffee and have my first cup while I am trying to wake up.
  14. I think watching sport is boring – despite growing up in a sport mad family and living in a rugby crazy country.
  15.  I have an irrational fear of army helicopters flying overhead.
  16. I really don’t like cooking and am forever grateful for my husband’s delicious meals.
  17. I love watching movies almost as much as I love reading.
  18. I hate being the centre of attention.
  19. I am not a great fan of camping – see number 6.
  20. Despite a few hair-raising experiences with planes, I love to travel and have a wish list of the countries I would still like to see.


  1. I’m a little bit jealous that you have a delicious-meal-providing husband! Fancy hiring him out?! 😉

  2. No fresh strawberries?? I’m shocked, they’re one of my favourite fruits ever! And we have some pretty great strawberries where I live. The ones in supermarkets usually aren’t very good but the ones at farmer’s markets or even better, straight off the bushes are divine. And ditto to the coffee and not being a morning person. I try not to have coffee too much – maybe once a week – but sometimes, if I have to be up REALLY early, it’s a must. Otherwise I just have no energy to do anything.

  3. *gasp* How could you say strawberries are overrated? No but seriously snakes are scary, anyone who says they’re not afraid of snakes is lying! =)

  4. I also hate snakes and I also love coffee! Love this post, it’s good to know these kind of things about other bloggers 🙂

  5. LOVE this post! I can’t believe you don’t like fresh strawberries!! I could eat them until they’re coming out of my ears, haha! I’m with you on the sport, although I’m having to slowly change now I have become a rugby mum. Keep blogging xxxxx
