This blogging caper is all about me, all the time.
What I cooked. Where I holidayed. What mortifying, yet side-splittingly funny situation I found myself in this week.
ALL ABOUT ME. ALL THE TIME.
Over the holidays, it occurred to me that I'd like to know more about you.
What you cooked. Where you holidaed. What mortifying, yet side-splittingly funny situation you found yourself in this week.
In the interests of shortening the virtual distance between us, I dreamed up a few questions. I'll go first...
I met Bearhands at a New Years Eve ball in 2013. I was twenty-four years old. The following year, we spend a week in South Africa. This photo was taken at Graskop Gorge on a old-school camera that used actual film.
My favourite childhood meal was beef stroganoff. So many of my happy family memories come with a side of beef stroganoff. I blogged Mum and Dad's recipe and some of my questionable sporting achievements a few years ago - you can read it here.
My favourite zoo animal is the rhino. We've been lucky enough to share some up-close encounters with these behemoth beauties at Australia Zoo. They have the loveliest hairiest ears.
I think my proudest achievement has been a combined effort between Bearhands and I. Our early days of farming we hard. At times I wondered what on earth I'd go myself into. My proudest achievement is the smooth-functioning farm that we run today. Our daughters are also a combined effort, but can you consider breeding an achievement?
The tallest building I've been to the top of is Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. I was 34 weeks pregnant with the Little Sister and the heat taught me a great respect for women who have summer babies. Bearhands doesn't like heights, so he stood at a safe distance while he snapped my photo. On the way home, the Über-professional Airport Manager made me promise I wouldn't have my baby on the plane. I promised her that had no intentions of giving birth in economy. I kept my word.
So they are my answers. Yep, more stories about me. This blogging caper really is narcissistic, isn't it?
What about you?
How old were you when you met your soulmate? What's your favourite childhood meal? Your favourite zoo animal? Your proudest achievement? What's the tallest building you've ever been up?
and a final bonus question: can you count breeding as an achievement?
I can't wait to read your answers. xx
