Continuing the Love Theme

Day 21- A picture of something that makes you happy

I love how my brother has found his soul mate and is marrying her next year. These photos all make me extremely happy.

The Love Clock Continues to Tick

Day 20- Someone you see yourself marrying/being with in the future

Oh Gosh… If i knew the answer to this, I would be a very happy person.

I do have an idea of the type of person and the qualities that I would like them to possess in mind.

Love is weird thing.
It’s two ways.
You can’t always choose who you fall in love with and who falls in love with you.

Until then, I ponder and wait…

I couldn’t pick just one..

heh heh heh

Day 03- A picture of you and your friends

The core ones who have been my Australian family. Love you!

The Beginning

Day 01- A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself

I haven’t got any recent photos of me, that aren’t already on here, so this one will have to do, plus this guy is a legend!

15 Interesting Facts, let’s just be honest here, by the time you finish reading them, you’ll be ready for bed.

1. I don’t like drinking water, unless I’m extremely thirsty and it’s the only thing around, or if I’m playing sports.
I’d pick sparkling water over regular water any day, and dear Mr Bartender, it’s different from soda water!

2. My favourite vegetable is the potato, closely followed by the sweet potato.

3. I don’t like getting wet. I have to get my head in gear before taking the plunge. Once I’m in, I’m fine and happy and can stay in for hours.

4. I love the heat. I grew up in a country where it is 55 degrees celcius for 3 months of the year with 100% humidity.

5. Lately I’ve been wearing a lot of salmon coloured clothing, with is funny, because a lot of people think my name is pronounced Salmon.

6. I’m more of a crisp person than I am a chocolate person.

7. The reason why my best friend and I became friends in the first place was all because of a single song. A Weezer song, which was covered by Further Seems Forever… Anyone know their music?

8. Since I was so involved with my sport and had too many comittments and they didn’t have the special development programs that they have now, I nearly flunked out of school. Through a very hard decision, I managed to turn it around through moving to another country, and now I’m a high school teacher. Go figure.

9. I used to be able to speak 7 languages in varying degrees. However I’m terrible at 6 of them now due to no-one speaking them and me not being able to practice and have conversation in them.

10. I used to be obsessed with Schna naa, and my parents had no idea what it was, then one day I went mental pointing at the tv. It turns out that Schna naa was in fact the Pinocchio tv series in Afrikaans.

11. On the 9th of November, so in a few days, I will finally be eligible to apply for my Australian Citizenship.

12. I broke my first bone at the age of two, going over a tiny ramp off the verandah on my tricycle.

13. I’ve never been allowed to vote in any country that I have lived in, and I’ve lived on three seperate continents.

14. I seem to have way too many close calls with snakes, and sharks. That’s not even normal! I’m completely not a fan of this fact.

15. I honestly never thought my brother would get married before me, but it’s pretty much going to happy unless I shotgun it before the end of April. Yeah right!

Our tradition..

Not much longer now, till we fulfill our tradition of going down south for our core group’s HEN”S WEEKEND.

The first one to get hitched was Chantelle almost 3 years ago.
This is the tour of our pad!

Clare, you’re next!!


Due to illness, injury and some unfortunate personal circumstances, I found over the last two years I have become a hermit.
Friday nights is traditionally stay at home with Benny and watch movies night. Saturday nights, often the same.

However I have furthered friendships with some pretty amazing people, through sport.
I have been spending a lot of time with some of the girls from my hockey club, namely Bianca and Kirst and they are doing their best to get me back up to speed.. Sometimes three times in one week!

Otherwise it’s the lovely ladies I know from surfing. The likes of Larissa, Amy and Briony.

JUST AS EXCITING, my best friend Sarah has finally flown back from India. It’s good to have her back after nearly three long months.
So good to see her face all the time. Oh and the HUGS!

Next weekend is our traditional Girls Hen’s Weekend down south, as Clare gets married in a few weeks.
Just the original crew, who I have been doing life with, since I moved to Australia.. back when we were all scrawny teenagers.
Clare, Sarah, Chantelle and Jess… It’s going to be amazing!

Clare's Getting Married!

Currently listening to Mgmt - The Youth

Let's KISS her!

The Crew about 7 years ago

Another one bites the dust..

Out of our close friends of five, the second is about to get married.
Exciting isn’t it?

We’ve been looking forward to it for a while.

Clare has been very very busy making last minute arrangements and payments for the big day which is next month. Here is a cute letter from her to her finance.

Our group tradition is just before one of us is married off, we take a girly weekend (I guess it would be the Hen’s night equivilent) down south to Margaret River. One of our favourite places.
The land of wineries, caves, cheese and chocolate factories and beautiful forest and bushland.

I’ve already told my coach I’m unable to play that weekend – and he replied with – as long as you make the most of it, and consume lots of alcohol. Yeah good one coach! ha ha.
