I am alive

I just realised that I have not been here in a while. Hello friends. I am still alive and don’t worry, I am not here just to post a Tuesday Tune. Although that will start again from this week onwards. 😉

I have been uber busy since the last time I was here, late nights working till 10 pm. One night even ended up at 1 am. I have had so much happening, training, work and deadlines.

I can hear you asking about fun… well, that has been out on the back burner for a bit… sad but true.

I don’t know about you, but can you believe that it is the 1st of August already? One month till Spring… *insert happy dance here*

I will catch up with everyone soon.
Take care,

(5) To have a baby

(6) To sleep under the stars

Sleep under the stars

Day nine: Seven things that frighten/scare you in life

Yes, I know that this is still challenge is still outstanding. Maybe I should have called this the 15 week or month challenge instead? LOL! I thought it would be best to get this done, so I will try my best to get this finished within the next week or two.

Here goes: Seven things that frighten/scare you in life (some of these can be silly I guess, but it made it onto the list).

  1. Being tied up and being forced to listen to Justin Bieber or One Direction songs all day. *gag*
  2. Mice, rats, hamsters, any rodent in fact. Strange how I am not scared of spiders or lizards or worms or moths but I completely freak out when I see a mouse, a rat or a hamster. In fact any rodent freaks me out.
  3. Being in a car accident and not being able to get out of the car.
  4. Horror movies. I am not a fan of those.
  5. Being physically/sexually abused or being raped, which let’s face it, is a possibility in our country, especially with the high rape statistics.
  6. Never falling in love. I think I have mentioned this before… I have never been in love and I guess it frightens me that I will never know what it feels like.
  7. Losing my senses and not being able to express myself.

So there you have it… the things that frighten/scare me in life.

Have a good Friday further.


Day eight: Eight ways to win my heart

  1. Communication… it takes two to have a conversation, it takes two to make a relationship work and it takes two to build up trust. Honesty is important and I would need to know that I can tell him anything and he will not run because I have opened up to him or vice versa. Without Trust no relationship can work.
  2. Acceptance of my family is a must. We are a small family, and close to one another. So, as family, they will always want to know my business and be warned about the fact that my brothers feel they have to protect me. Don’t be frightened about that… be frightened if you screw me around and I tell them.
  3. A sense of humour. This would be an awesome thing if he understood that my sense of humour can be warped sometimes. It would be great if he could understand that and also respect the fact that I say things without thinking them. I call it mouth before brain disease.
  4. KISS – keep it simple sweetie. Life is about simple things. Beautiful things. Uncomplicated things. For example: If you decide to buy me flowers for my birthday, think sun flowers or daisies rather than roses. Oh and the actual KISSING is a bonus too;)
  5. Be a saint in public and a sinner in the bedroom. LOL! I have always wanted to say that. But seriously, I need a man who will be a friend, a gentleman and a flirt. In fact, flirting with me is a good thing. Woo me. Tease me. Tempt me. Entice me… and you will be rewarded *wink wink*
  6. Don’t be a chop… treat people as equals whether they are a waitress in a restaurant or a world famous doctor. Don’t make people feel stupid.
  7. Patience… I sometimes can be difficult (read stubborn). I tend to want to do things on my own. I tend to be VERY independent. He will have to learn that and that is where the patience comes in. If I don’t succeed, please don’t say: ‘I told you so’. Just let me be. I will come to you for help/advice if and when I need it.

Day six: Ten things you want to say to ten different people…

Okay, so maybe one or two points on this list will not make sense… but when I get a little more braver to share, I will fill you in on certain happenings… here is day six of the 15 day challenge.

Thanks. Thanks for being there when I need a shoulder to cry on. Thanks for listening to me and thanks for the advice. You are a big part of my life and I appreciate all the things you did and still do.

Rugby Man:
Dude! You did it! You found love for a second time. I am so very proud of you and I know that she loves you. The light that beams from her eyes and well, the way you have changed is brilliant. Hold onto this, it doesn’t happen often.

Okay, so things change and maybe she wasn’t the one for you. I am sorry it didn’t work out. I am still proud of you. The way you stick to your decisions is very impressive. Know that I will always be here for you. No matter what. Just shout and I’ll be there.

Biker Man: 

I knew you wouldn’t last long without a bike… and yes, I will always be willing to watch the girlies while you and Wifey go out.

“*cough *splutter* BDSM and Love2Meet? What crazy ish are you involved in Kat???”
My friend… if you only knew… LOL! The love2meet was/is the dating site I am on, although no-one will find me as I don’t have public photos on the site for obvious reasons. But I am still on there… looking around… seeing if it internet dating really works. As for the BDSM… I was doing some research… I can share all the info in a later post. (I am trying the cliff hanger thing… is it working?)

Gerard Butler:
Will you marry me? LOL! I couldn’t resist adding a funny one in the list. 😛

Dubai Guy:
You have been in and out of my life for a few years now… you will always have a “special” place in my heart. You suggested we hook up, but, did you really think I wouldn’t find out that you are married? You say it lasted only a month, but I don’t think so. I have a sixth sense that says differently, and I always trust my sixth sense, even if it makes me seem a little paranoid at times. Anyways, thanks for the chats but I think they should come to an end… you should focus on your wife. Oh and btw, take care to block your Facebook profile… there is always someone who can find out things about you… just give them Wi-Fi and some patience.

The happy one:
It is fun hanging out with you, but I don’t see myself with you in the future. Even though you are mature in some ways, in others you aren’t and I don’t want to feel like the mommy in a relationship. You are a nice person, but I think all we will ever be is friends. Hey and you know what? You can never have too many of those around.

The serious one:
I know this is crazy, but, I feel I should write something to you too. I like you. I like the way you think. I like that you “care” in your own way. I like the way you can sense when something is wrong or when I am a little afraid to say something. I like the way we chat. I like your voice and your dark eyes. I like that I can share things with you, things I don’t share with anyone.


I don’t like that you cannot look past the physical. As Meghan Trainor says in her song: “You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll, So if that’s what you’re into then go ahead and move along” and let me tell you… features fade my friend and you will learn that. I am going to say this and it might sound “petty”, but I hope you find what you are looking for in those “barbie doll” girls, you know the ones I am referring to… the model airhead types who are all about looks and money. I hope you find your happiness with one of them.

and finally…

You have done so much in the past year and you can be proud of yourself. Keep up the hard work. You have a lot of responsibility and you must use it wisely. Remember to be patient with yourself and with those around you. Take care to think before you speak and learn to love yourself, your body, your mind. Trust your instincts in everything and never lose yourself. Don’t let other people put you down. You are a great person and you should know that and if they cannot deal with it then tough. You are you and you were born to be an original.

Day four: Twelve random facts about yourself



I think I should have made this the 15 week challenge. Hahahaha I do apologise for the break in transmission, life has happened. Not that it is necessarily a bad thing, but I feel that I have so much to tell you, but no time to actually sit down to write a proper post.

However, enough of my complaining… and back to the 15 day challenge and here it is – Day four: Twelve random facts/things about yourself.

In no particular order:

  1. I have green eyes and Cutie Pie has exactly the same colour eyes that I do. No one else in the family has green eyes.
  2. I tend to get bored very quickly.
  3. I like my own company.
  4. I always shave my right leg first.
  5. I cannot stand an untidy desk at the office and it has to be in order before I go home at night.
  6. I Google the people I meet.
  7. I Google myself.
  8. I cry in movies and TV shows.
  9. I am trying to lose weight. I have lost 8 kilograms already… still a long way to go, but slowly but surely, I will get there.
  10. I support breast cancer awareness.
  11. I sing in the church choir.
  12. I have never taken any recreational drugs in my life.

And there you go… there are twelve random things about me.
