Here are my answers to Cee’s Share Your World 23 January 2017
Do you prefer juice or fruit?
Fruit – I have always loved all kinds of fruit. My grandparents had a lovely garden with a variety of fruit trees in it and we were free to pick as much as we liked. Perhaps that is why I love fruit so much. I don’t drink much fruit juice or any sweet drinks but if I do guava is my juice of choice.
Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
The city of Cape Town was an hour’s train ride from the small seaside village where I grew up and what was there not to love? We had the beach, the mountain and the safety of the times.We had freedom – we’d walk or ride bikes everywhere on our own, play unsupervised on the beach and climb the mountain in kids only groups. It was an idyllic place to grow up.
If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colors would you use?
Bright and beautiful ones -blinding white for the sea-sand, sparkling blue for the sky, emerald green for the grass and trees. The sun shone a lot – but of course there were the grey, rainy days but they were filled with siblings and cousins playing board games and joining the dogs in front of a roaring log fire at Granny’s house
