Its for you...

If you live in Cape Town, I am sure you have noticed that its ridiculously hot today. I wish I was at the beach with a big umbrella, sunblock and a box of ice-creams *sigh*

Today I was all set to do my "current addictions" post, but this glorious weather outside my office window is so mesmerising that I can't think about anything sensible, except escaping outside. Anyways, I decided to just do an "Its for you.." post instead (plus, I am rather curious what you all have been up to lately)

How it works (in case you forgot): I will answer the below very random questions - then you can answer the questions as a comment. Why? 'cause sharing is caring *winks*:

1. Today I feel...like I must go play outside
2. This week...I wish I was still on holiday
3. Last night...I had yummy fish and chips. I also finished watching the film My Neighbor Totoro - which was adorable.
4. Lately the song stuck in my head is... " I got a feeling" -The Black Eyed Peas
5. My New Years eve... started off with a bit of unwanted drama, but still ended up being a wonderful evening thanks to lots of red wine, The Boyf, lovely friends and fun music.
6. This year I'm looking forward to... achieving some of my goals, celebrating a rather important birthday, making my blog better, seeing how the World Cup goes and having more fun.
7. What big lesson/s did you learn in 2009? I learnt alot of things, but i think the biggest lesson was probably just to believe in myself more and that being positive alot will bring more positive things into my life (simple and true).

    7. What big lesson/s did you learn in 2009? Regret can be your best ally in that it encourages you to not want to feel it.

    Compliments of the season lady!

    5. My New Years eve... was chilled but fun. I decided this year I would see the New Year in with respect. Respect = Respect, hopefully…
    6. This year I'm looking forward to... reading all the Jane Austins, learning to paint, frame, upholster the 3 couches I have collected to do exactly that, hopefully giving up smoking, perhaps a ring if I am lucky and being extraordinarily happy. I have such a great feeling about 20zen!
    7. What big lesson/s did you learn in 2009? You have to take the good with the bad. There is a balance to life and with pain most definitely comes pleasure and vice versa.
