someone is reading!

Thanks so much to Nicole from Healthy Earth Healthy Me for sending over my first blog award.

So for seven things about me:

  1. I love to travel and have - a lot.  I lost count of the counties I visited after about number 40 and have to visit South America and Antarctica and then I will have set foot on every continent (above is my favourite travel pic taken in an Indian desert);
  2. I once appeared in a Bollywood movie (during Indian travels above);
  3. DK and I have been together since I was 17 years old - so our next major anniversary will be 20 years! Shhhh that makes me feel old.
  4. DK and I got matching tattoos after knowing each other for three weeks - yeah we're classy...
  5. I was born in a country that no longer exists - Rhodesia which is now Zimbabwe and we immigrated to Australia when I was seven.
  6. I'm a terrible procrastinator - seriously I can waste months before getting started on something.
  7. I'm a reformed spend-thrift. 
Seven new blogs:
  1. - adventures of being an expat living abroad
  2. - there should always be more poetry;
  3. - lovely pics;
  4. - super stylish vintage;
  5. - a green guru;
  6. - wonderful interior stylist;
  7. - a new "reno" in progress.
Gee that took me days... what am I going to do when I got back to work soon and you know .. have deadlines to get things done!
