Monday MeMe

6 Mar

Robyn over at Memoirs 4 My Munchkins tagged me in her Monday MeMe. Of course, I am delayed as usual! But here goes:

The rules

  • Post 11 things about yourself
  • Answer the questions given
  • Set 11 new questions
  • Tag people

About me:

  1. I am currently juggling being a student and mother and wife at this blessed age in my life
  2. I’m so looking forward to turning the big 3-0 soon
  3. I have a Master’s degree but couldn’t find a job for an entire year (hence the studies)
  4. I miss living on the coast but I love this big city
  5. I would really love to have another child, it’s a longing in my heart that might never go away but I don’t know if that will happen after my studies are done in another five years!!!
  6. I am definitely a chocoholic! The richer and darker – the better!!!!
  7. I’m shy and take a while with strangers. That’s weird because running a practice required me to meet new people on a daily basis.
  8. I like my space and if I could, I would spend my time curled up with a book because I miss reading.
  9. Giving birth naturally (with the help of a pethidine injection) was one of the most awesome experiences of my life. I found it to be very empowering as well. If I can do all 8 hours of THAT – surely I can do anything! (I think)
  10. I loathe unpacking, especially when you’ve moved!!!
  11. Sam sleeps in our room and once we’re in bed, he crawls in. We’ve co-slept since he was two weeks old, sleep training never worked and I have  no inclination to change a thing about our arrangement!

These were the questions given:

  1. If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be and why? Nelson Mandela, he is iconic, need i say more?
  2. What is your greatest achievement? Raising my son and getting my first degree (in no particular order)
  3. What is your greatest fear? Failing!
  4. Which “normal” person do you most admire? (no celebs!) My dad, he works so hard to provide for his family and so many other people out there, he has the biggest heart I know.
  5. What do you like most about yourself? I’m relatively easy-going.
  6. …And least? I borderline OCD…
  7. What is your favorite holiday destination and why? Franshoek – cheese and wine! Who could resist?
  8. What is the worst Christmas or birthday present you have received and who gave it to you? I can’t think of any…
  9. What is your happiest childhood memory? Playing in our massive yard at my childhood home for hours on end and never getting bored.
  10. What did you want to be when you were a kid… as in what profession? A doctor
  11. What is your motto in life? Treat people the way you want to be treated

Here are my 11 new questions:

  1. you can pick one chocolate from the box. What do you hope is inside?
  2. What creeps you out?
  3. Are you an early bird or night owl?
  4. If you were going to redecorate your home, what would you change?
  5. What books do you enjoy reading?
  6. What’s your favorite season?
  7. Would you have another child if money wasn’t an option?
  8. What would you do if you didn’t have to work?
  9. Savory or sour?
  10. Are you addicted to any form of social media?
  11. Does your partner think that you’re addicted to any form of social media?

I hope you got to know a little more about me…. now I’m looking forward to hearing about

LET’S GO!!!!
