I got tagged. And I love a meme ~ great way to waste while away some time ... 

What is your current obsession?

It was exercise until my injured ankle put that on hold - grrr. Then it was knitting small woollen hearts but I seemed to have slowed down on that too ... Oh I know, playing with my new iPod! Oh and, Mediterranean purple figs. Soooo good, soooo expensive ...

Good fika place?

Vida e Caffe. Always and for ever. A great Cape Town story of local boys made good - they've got branches all over the country now and have just opened in London! 

Do you nap a lot?

Not nearly as much as I used to pre-Frieda, and not nearly as much as I'd like to.

Who was the last person you hugged?

My bull-terrier puppy. She looked like she needed one - mournful little puppy eyes ... 

If you were a tree, what tree would you be?

A family tree.

Have you ever had an altercation with the police?

Once, in the parking lot of a night club in Durbanville. I managed to persuade them that the pervasive smell of marijuana was coming from the car next to us ...

What was the last thing you bought?

A single skinny latte from Vida!

What are you listening to right now?

The roar of the rubbish truck passing. Romantic huh?

What is your favourite weather?

28 degrees Celsius. Not a breath of wind. 

What’s on your bedside table?

Don't have one. Our bedroom is a lovely serene, clear room and I decided a bedside table would be just another place for clutter to collect and I definitely don't need more of those! Also we're on a futon and any low table would be an instant kiddie-magnet.  

So all I have by my bed is my current book and my beloved yellow Slabang! clock from IKEA (can anyone tell me what slabang means?), which I pick up and put on a dresser in our room every morning. It's one of very few areas I feel I have control of in our house!

Say something to the person/s who tagged you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the music!

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be?

Cape Town!

Favourite vacation spot?

The Transkei wild coast ~ supreme beauty, serenity and steady supply of fresh crayfish.

Name the things you can’t live without.

My limited edition Converse All Stars. 5 well-loved years and still going strong ~ what will I do when they die??

Books. Dairy products. Lip Balm. Sunglasses.

What would you like to have in your hands right now?

A ceaser salad ...

What is your favourite tea flavour?

Good ole' Ceylon. Don't fix what ain't broken.

What would you like to get rid of?

The junk in the attic my trunk.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?

To any restaurant which serves the world's best ceaser salad.

What did you want to become as a child?

A boy.

What do you like better, e-mail or telephone calls?

Depends to/from whom ...

What do you do when you get time alone?

Worry about when it'll end. Rush about being more productive then I usually can be with toddler in tow. Procrastinate. Day dream.

I know I'm supposed to pass these things on and tag someone else (or in this case 8 people I believe), but I'm kinda shy so I'll save up all my tagging for now and blast some poor newbie blogger with the lot of them one day ...

love the idea of keeping the bedroom clutter free, it's just too late here at our house...
