Stamp collecting

Just a quick post before I leave for the weekend – going away for a friends wedding, CAN’T WAIT!


When my mom was little she started a stamp collection which my gran took over when mom moved out. I wouldn’t say she’s an avid collector since she only shoves the stamps into envelopes and never really get’s round to sorting them properly but still, she has had them for many years and has quite and extensive collection.


A few years back she asked all her grandchildren if they would be interested in taking over her collection. At that stage I was less than interested but I found the collection again the other day and asked her if I could have it. After a little hesitation, she said I could. So I am now a stamp collector :)

Have a great weekend!

Horse riding

My fiancĂ©'s sister asked me a while back if I could perhaps take a few photos of her riding horse and doing a few jumps, so last weekend I finally got the time. Here’s some of the pictures:

Learning a lot about my camera and had a photo shoot today with my friends – will post some photos ASAP.

Tag! You're it!

How to play the game:
1. Sit down.
2. Take a picture of yourself right now. Don't even look in a mirror! Just take it!
3. Upload it.
4. Tag 3 people to do the same.
That's all!

Here's mine:

I definately prefer not taking my own foto!! :$

So I tag BOTH my followers (HAHA!)

Monique tagged me in her post 10 things so here goes...

  1. I figure things out on my own. Many people think I'm very clever because I can get things done on my own - the only reason is that if I don't know how to do something, I look it up. The internet is a great teacher :)

  2. My cheerleading team won nationals back in 2000 - I'm very proud of that and desperately wish I had a video to show my kids one day!

  3. I have a wallet addiction. Use to own more than 20 but I've thrown some of them out now.

  4. I can twist my tongue so that the left side touches my right cheek and the other way around.

  5. I have never broken a bone in my body.

  6. My fiance's aunt was my Gr1 teacher!

  7. I used to write poems.

  8. Mieke and I have been best friends for more than 16 years.

  9. I hate talking to people on the phone.

  10. I wear the same size shoe as my cousin who's 8 years younger than me :$
