Now that I am slowly starting to develop my green thumbs with my balcony garden - I would love a terrarium. This blog : http://fleurlux.blogspot.com/ is such a treat. Every image and every item in the shop. These are on my wishlist:

I think this is the first photograph of myself on Lucy Cant Dance, but I thought it was rather important. I had my wisdom teeth removed on Thursday, all four of them. 7 injections and a half hour later I walked out of the dentist sortof smiling. A couple of hours later, I was grabbing at my pain meds, wishing I had remained my four teeth wiser. My granddad treated with to a trip to the hairdresser for whatever I like. He was the one reaching for a headache tablet when he saw me. Oops!

As a kid, I was a proper t.v addict. My biggest dream was to be able to eat my breakfast while watching t.v [My mother never allowed it]. I grew up and I grew out of my love affair for day time telly, infomercials and Yo! TV. Until recently. I have to go out and party, just to stop myself from watching the box. This bedroom pictured above, found on The Architect Blog; is not really to my taste, but gollygee, I wouldn't mind me this settup so I could catch a sitcom before I gettup.

AnMari and Lezane exhibited their clothing (which deserves a whopper of an applause) at Design Indaba this year. Because I live a busy life being between jobs and cleaning the house, I could not attend. So they brought the Design Indaba to me in the form of this lovely sweets bowl. Orange you jealous? I tried to find out more about the designers work, but my google skills are obviously not as genius as I thought.

I am so lucky to still have a great granny to chit chat to; this my friends, is Nanna Peg. My 96 [97 in May] year old Great Gran. Living in Joburg means I get to see her a lot more than I used to. The craziest thing about Nanna is that she has lost 99% of eyesight and her hearing aint so hot anymore either, but she lives on here own in a terrific retirement home; where she is a small celebrity for being the oldest kid on the block, and she still cooks for herself, does her own shopping and keeps a pretty tight garden. I try to visit Nanna as often as I can; we drink tea and she speaks of the war, her travels to Canada, New York and countless other amazing places. In her cozy flat, is a big glass cabinet filled with tactile memories from Nanna's most exciting life. Each time I go, she retells the stories attached to the artifacts; and lets me take a little memento to remember her by. The swan and the rabbit are ancient and I now treasure them dearly, to be honest, there are times I believe Nanna Peg will outlive us all!

One of the very many perks of my moving to the concrete jungle that is Joburg; is that I get to spend plenty time with these ruggamuffins. My cousins, Damian and Jade; aren't they just too cute? I'm beginning to think children of this age have Lucozade running through their tiny excitable bodies, as opposed to blood like us old lazy farts.
Comme des Garçons comes along and turns my previously sufficient life upside down. Please, please, may I have one of everything to wear everyday for the rest of my life. I could sleep in this, eat in this, watch t.v in this; heck, I'll even start jogging just to say, I'll jog in this.
