21 Things about Me # 4 / Twenty Wishes for 2014

List FOUR goals you plan to accomplish in the future
I am actually not much of a planner - never have been. This list really is difficult & I cannot come up with 4 goals.
Most of my goals such as -  own a home, see One Direction live, take mom overseas for the first time - have been/are being realised.

So with that I will give you 1 goal:
  1. Take my dad for an overseas holiday - probably to see the Rugby Sevens tournament somewhere awesome like Hong Kong.
    The bonding time with my mom in the UK is going to be amazing. I need the same with my dad. With all his health scares, I want to be able to do this with him before it is too late. Dad and I used to go on road trips to Cape Town and discuss all sorts of things on the 11 hour drive. We have not done this for a very long time.
The rest are all wishes & seeing as I have not yet posted my Twenty Wishes for 2014 ( I compiled it in January, but never blogged it) - here they are:
  1. Buy a really pretty dress - Similar to a LBD - in case I ever need an outfit 
  2. Try Pilates
  3. Host more dinner parties/luncheons
  4. Learn to cook more recipes
  5. Eat More fruit
  6. Go to a movie by myself
  7. Kiss a stranger
  8. Take more photos & complete my Project 365 challenge
  9. Fix my dry feet
  10. Do another spontaneous thing (2013: Bought 1D tickets)
  11. Have High Tea in London
  12. Fall in Love
  13. Buy a nice fitting blazer
  14. Read a great book
  15. Watch a classic movie 
  16. Drink more water 
  17. Get my weight below 70kg 
  18. Tone my stomach
  19. Work less 
  20. Be a happier person

{Sunshine Award}

The lovely & bubbly Mel over at Mel's Corner  recently nominated me for a Sunshine Award - thanks for thinking of me Mel!

So what does that mean? 
It means I get to tell you more about myself (seems to be all I talk about these days - ha!)

Rules of the Sunshine Award:
1) Display the award on your ever deserving blog
2) Say "thank you" to the wonderful person to have nominated you
3) Give us 10 interesting things about yourself
4) Nominate some of your favorite blogs
5) Link to those blogs in your post and let them know that you've nominated them!

10 Interesting things about me...
  1. I have green eyes - my dad has blue eyes and my mom has brown eyes
  2. I have the exact same birthmark on my back that my grandfather had - it almost looks like an acid spill - but most times you cannot see it because I am naturally pale
  3. I think about travelling - ALL the time
  4. I am very talkative, but I am also very shy sometimes
  5. My younger brother is married with a child & it honestly does not bother me
  6. I hate exercise, but I am loving Pilates more than I ever thought I would 
  7. My cousins used to be Andre Agassi's neighbours in Malibu
  8. I was on the radio asking Jhb whether I should hook up with an older or a younger guy - Jhb voted for the younger guy - so I did! 
  9. I almost lost my thumb when I was little - I was run over by a car
  10. I almost died when my appendix burst in 2008 - I didn't know I had a major infection because I had felt no pain until it was almost too late
My favourite blogs (I don't read or blog very much anymore, but there are a few I religiously read the moment I have time)
Thanks again for this Mel!
