A Love Triangle Spreads the Love


A lovely blogger that I have discovered through the #Blogtober challenge has nominated me for One Lovely Blog Award. A Love Triangle's author is Charlotte from England. She's young but writes with a maturity you don't often find out there. She's also a great photographer, a cat lover and a very talented artist - check out her work on Etsy

So, what now? Well I have to share 7 facts about myself. Since I share so much on this blog, I think the regular readers know me well. Here goes though!

  1. I'm running my first official 10km this Sunday (2 November) as part of the Soweto Marathon. I am pooping my pant! (Not really, that would be TMI and then I wouldn't be running would I?)
  2. Loud televisions drive me mad. I hate it when the volume is too high. I'm forever putting the volume down much to the annoyance of those around me
  3. I'm petrified of meeting my online friends in real life. What if they don't like me?
  4. I used to love whisky. Since the miscarriage last year, I don't like it at all. I have a sip every once in a while, but I can no longer drink a generous dram
  5. On the other hand, I'm loving bubbly. I was never a fan but suddenly that's all I want to drink!
  6. I have no idea who to get people to advertise on my food blog or where to put the adverts - I'm technically stumped
  7. I have serious life envy of those doing their own exciting thing. But I have no idea what my exciting own thing would be to do
Next I'm supposed to nominate a few blogs for the award. There are so many blogs that I love and read often - but I know those ladies are all busy so I don't want to force them to post if they can't.

My 15 top blogs right now?
Midlands Musings
Indie Berries
Ellie Love
Living Lionheart
Heart of Iron
Our Journey to Everywhere
The Sun House
SnapShots & WhatNots
exPress-O

Thanks again!

#blogtoger14: 28. Things You're Superstitious about

Let's look at a few of the common superstitions and I'll tell you if I believe them.....


Beginner's luck
Nope, not at all. I don't believe you get luck. I think you sieze opportunities.

Find a penny, pick it up …
We don't have penny's in SA and I don't think our 10c coppers have quite the same effect.

Don't walk under that ladder!
Well, sometimes it's just not safe you know? But otherwise, I don't see it as unlucky.

Black cats crossing your path
I'm in trouble then as one crosses my path daily. He also rubs up against me asking for attention. Since he is my cat's BFF I think he'll be around often!

A rabbit's foot will bring you luck
Um.....no eeeeeuuuw gross!

Bad luck comes in threes
Ok this one I kind of do believe in. But only because that's how it always seems to work. I don't think that bad luck comes in threes to one person - rather three people you know. Every time I've had an accident, I hear of two people I know who also had an accident. But there has to be extreme similarities (in the accident case - three of the same car!).

Careful with that mirror
Besides that you can cut yourself? not really

Triple 6
Well let's not put it out there if we can help out. The dinner that came to R666? Well we left a pretty nice tip after ordering another glass of wine

Knock on wood
Maybe a habit more than a belief?

No umbrellas inside
Usually that means bringing the water inside too so it's a little foolish.

Friday the 13th
I did have an accident on Friday the 13th. But then, I had accidents on a Wednesday, a Thursday etc etc. It's just a day

Are you superstitious?

#blogtoger14: Day 27. A Letter to your Younger Self

There is so much I want to tell my younger self.






To high school me:
Dress better - buy nice clothes even if they aren't practical and even if they won't last 3 seasons.
Pay attention in class
Boys don't really matter. You'll find the right one later in life

To post high school - the one living in Cape Town and studying:
Keep up that exercise. Gym is good and worth going to (even if the little Indian man takes off his pants in yoga class)
Don't go to every single party - spend some time outdoors being active
Choose people you can friends with for longer than one term

To my London self:
Save your money - you don't need all the crap you left behind or outgrew
Travel more - career? what career? go see the world
You'll never fit in, just be yourself and enjoy it.
It's ok to do things alone

She's a bit silly, a bit funny, doesn't take herself too seriously and is really pretty!
Plus she always gets the nice guy!

#blogtoger14: Day 25. Favorite book

 
Choosing just one book is impossible.
Her books are written in such a unique way. She takes ordinary stories and weaves them into something more.
Have you read her books?
