Here are my answers to Share Your World 10 April 2017
Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story.
My first fun run was 5 km which I ran with my friend Chantal (She features later in this post too) – I was in my forties and she was in her thirties. Then in my fifties I ran an 8km fun run with my grandsons who were about 8 and 9 at the time. They were both fun events but like Cee I was not ever a competitive runner but enjoyed jogging for exercise. The last time I ran more than 1 km was when I was 60. I’ve decided it’s time to slow down to a walk.
Name one thing not many people know about you.
My life is an open book. Most of my friends have known me for a very long time and I can’t think of anything they might not know about me. I lived in my home town most of my life before retiring to Struisbaai but some people may not know that from the age of 2 to 5 I lived in Johannesburg and started my formal schooling there.
What is your favorite flower?
My favourite flower is the South African National Flower – The Protea
Things I want to have in my home (paintings, hot tubs, book cases, big screen tv etc)
I am very happy with everything I have in my house (all of the above except the hot tub) l’d only change one thing – the floors. I’d like either wood laminate flooring throughout or tiles that look like wood laminate.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
As much as I love living here at the southern tip of Africa, I do miss my Cape Town friends and family. So I’m always grateful when they come to visit for a few days. After much re-scheduling Chantal and Jeremy made it here this past weekend. How wonderful it was to have a good catch up and not have to try and get all the news in during a quick dinner date fitted in when we go to Cape Town.
Next week I am looking forward to Easter. The kids will be coming in large numbers!
