Here are my answers to this weeks questions from Cee
What is your earliest memory?
It is difficult to say what my earliest memory is. I was born in Cape Town but lived in Johannesburg from age 2 to 5 and my memories definitely begin there. Something that stands out very clearly is walking down a road with my mother. I am holding onto her as she is pushing my sister in a pram. I must be three years old. We’re on our way to meet my brother aged 6 from school. I see him walking proudly toward us, carrying his little suitcase. I know I have missed him while he’s been at school while I have had to remain home with the baby and I desperately want to go to school too. So desperate was I that my parents got me enrolled at age five when the legal starting age for Grade 1 was actually 6! That didn’t turn out well – but we won’t go into that now!
Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?
It depends on the holder. Mine works best with it going over. When it’s the other way it tends to unwind too much. There’s more control with it winding over.
What makes you feel grounded?
I don’t know. I just am. I don’t allow myself to worry about insignificant things. I concentrate on the positive.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I appreciated the work done by the contractors who did my bedroom extension, the cupboards that were so expertly built and installed and the painting that was done. I also appreciated the two days we took to go to the Hot Springs in Warmwaterberg. It was delicious relaxing in the mineral waters. I also smiled when I came across a huge crowd of motorcyclists at the place we stopped for breakfast on Friday. They gave me some great material for photography.
