What was I doing ten years ago?
1. Dumping my previous truly psycho boyfriend ( a psychologist!).
2. Designing and seeing the building work commencing on a big shopping centre - still today one of the biggest and most rewarding projects I have ever done.
3. Having a great time with my single late 20's buddies in my art deco flat.
4. Doing pottery as a hobby - I was quite good with that - should start it again.
5. Exactly 10 years ago this weekend, we spend the weekend in Dullstroom, our local trout fishing village with my group of buddies - had a great time.
What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today?
1. Wrap H's fathersday present.
2. Have A make a father's day card.
3. Exchange the nanny's birthday gift slippers for a size bigger.
4. Decide on a colour to paint our window frames at home.
5. Got to the autobank to get some cash.
Five snacks I enjoy:

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
1. Make sure my kids, parents, in laws etc. are all comfortably set up.
2. Get a nice big home on a safe smallholding to keep a horse or two. - preferrablly in the Easter Cape.
3. Start a campaign or contribute to the lot of abandoned children in South Africa. The kids really get to me.
4. Send my mom and in laws on an around the world trip.
5. Make all my travel dreams come true - too many to name - I'm a Sagittarius after all, and have heaps of holidays.
6. Continue working, but maybe just take the pace a little slower. Yes, I know this is controversial, but I am not a SAHM.
