Questions from everywhere … WWTK #60

This week Mamarazzi & Crazymama were kind enough to let their readers ask the questions. How nice are they not! 

So if you are linking up, and please do, remember to add the link to the blogs for each question.


{one} Scriptor wants  to know:
Hmm, I’d love to know how many tattoos our readers/bloggers have and if they don’t, do they want one and of what?

Not a single one … and most people who know me find this surprising. It’s not that I have anything against them; on the contrary I think they are awesome. 

So why don’t I have any? Because I don’t have anything significant that I want to tattoo … for me a tattoo should have meaning. Also, the mr has double standards; he does not want me to get one (despite his several).

Both my kids love watching LA Ink and NY Ink etc … so Cat once asked me if I didn’t love them, cause if I loved them I would have their faces tattooed on my back.  She also told me that as soon as she’s old enough she is going to get a full sleeve done with butterflies and flowers and hearts and her dad’s face.

Tiger said he’ll get a tattoo that says ‘I love my mom’

{two} Jenn wants to know:
What is the best present you ever received?

Oh good question and a hard one cause Himself is super good when it comes to giving presents!

Honestly, I have gotten so many great things and every time he comes back from a business trips he brings back something. My most recent big present which was fantastic was a string of pearls (12th wedding anniversary) …

Yes, I am aware of how lucky I am!

{three} Chelsea wants to know:
 Tall dark and handsome or pretty boys?

Without a doubt, tall dark and handsome!  I like men who look like men and muscles big muscles:

I have had a 'thing' for Bruce Willis for a very long time

Dwayne Johnson, my nr. 1 ... this man is SO SEXY!!

O so sad that Mickey Rourke no longer looks like this!

One word: SUPER-SEXY

{four} Jo @ wants to know:
How did you meet your significant other?

Hey, this was my question.  Ok let’s see if I can remember this far back.

I heard about Himself when I was about 10 years old. I was on a church camp with some kids who went to school with him and his aunt and her husband were councilors.

We finally met when I was 13. I was in boarding school & he came to visit his best friend whose dad was a teacher at my school.

I very clearly remember not liking him.  I thought he was full of himself!  Still is …
We saw quite a bit of each other over the next 5 years. He would either come visit his friend, or I would go with my best friend to visit his parents (her parents and his parents were very good friends). So we spent a lot of time hanging out.

When I left to go au pair in Germany in 1997 he came to say good bye at the airport, my aunt said to my mom ‘ Wish Jo could date a nice boy like him’.

Fast forward 6 months … I got back to South Africa, he had broken up with his long term girlfriend. Heard from my brother that I was back in the country, phoned to say ‘Hello’ and …. we were married on the 21st of March 2000. At our wedding his uncle made a toast and said that when he met me at that camp way back, he thought we would be a good match.

{five} Mamarazzi and Crazymama want to know:
OK..YOUR turn, what question would you like to see featured on a future WWTK? 

Okay, lets see what else would I like to find out about you … mmmh
