Share Your World – September 18, 2017

I’m participating in Cee’s SYW this week and below are my answers to these thought-provoking questions. For me, they are in any event.

Complete this sentence: I want to learn more about …

How to build a business from the ground up. There is no school or college programme that does this justice so I’ll just have to do it to learn about it 😉

On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep?

  • It goes without saying – a comfortable bed with clean soft sheets – I have been in places with dirty sheets.
  • A shower with hot water – sometimes the hot water part is missing, depending on where I travel to.
  • Safety and security – a door that locks and has a latch (preferably) – again, this has been missing in some places I have been to!
  • A kettle to boil water. Mugs, coffee and tea I can always find or bring.
  • Clean towels that are in good condition.
  • Overall cleanliness.

What is your greatest extravagance?

A Suzuki 750GSXR superbike. I’m going to sell it though. It was a whim. It’s beautiful though.

What inspired you this past week?  

Spending time with my niece and nephew!

Cheers for now.

Share Your World – September 4, 2017

Mondays Cee hosts Share Your World – this is my world this past week. It’s fun to enter.

What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?

Black mostly, although when I wear pink or white tops I get compliments on my choice of colour. My favourite colour is green and I don’t have too much green in my wardrobe. I’ve taken to wearing sandy tan shades and i feel good in them too, very earthy. But 99,9% black pants, at least.

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie).

I’m more of a cat person. I have never owned a dog. My nephew’s favourite stuffed animal is a dog called Ruffles which he sleeps with. So cute.

List at least five favorite flowers or plants.

Roses – love them

Ferns – hardy all year round plant and they look good and green all the time

St. Joseph Lillies – they smell so good

Orchids – my wedding bouquet consisted of a purple orchid – so lovely and different to the rest

All trees, especially the ones found in southern Africa, like the acacia tree. It is so evocative of the African bush.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

The warm spring weather has inspired me to take up my DSLR again which in turn has inspired me to buy a new Kelly Moore camera bag, this time one that can take my laptop too. I have a red B-Hobo right now and it doesn’t fit my Mac.

I’m checking out reviews on youtube and I’ve narrowed the search down to 3. More on this later…watch this space.
