I have been inspired by Steven Colborne and his blog Perfect Chaos (check him out – he writes a thought-provoking and entertaining blog). Recently he published a post entitled Who am I? Ten Fun Facts. He says he got the idea from another blogger – so to whoever originally thought of writing such a post – thank you.
I thought you my readers, might enjoy getting to know me a bit better so here are ten arbitrary facts about me.
- I was born and grew up in the UK, mainly in the South of England. We travelled a bit and I attended seven different schools from an old-fashioned village school to a girls’ convent to a dynamic grammar school.
- I lived in a caravan in an apple orchard for part of my childhood with my family (including seven cousins). We ran wild and enjoyed the freedom it gave us.
- I first encountered Jesus on a staircase when I was eighteen. He gave me the confidence I lacked to leave home and live adventures.
- I lived in London, studying and working for three years. I love that city! I visit it whenever I can.
- I left England sometime later and came to South Africa where I met my husband-to-be on the day I arrived.
- I fell in love with the African bush and wildlife, and have had many exciting holidays watching animals and birds in natural environments.
- I began writing twenty-five years ago when I was challenged to keep a spiritual journal. It took another eighteen years before I published my first book – but here I am today, blogger, author, poet … and loving it.
- With God’s help, I set myself step by step goals four years ago stretching out over a period of five years. They seemed impossible to achieve. But in a few days, I will fulfil the penultimate goal in the series! I am excited to discover when and how the ultimate, seemingly still unreachable goal will take place. As I said, life with Jesus has been an adventure.
- I enjoy chocolate.
- Here I am. Admittedly this was taken a couple of years ago, but it is the photo on my books and one of the few I like of myself. You’ll have to imagine a little bit of ‘anno domini’ adding a few changes!
Who are you? I’d love to hear from you and discover a bit about you. In the meantime – God bless you – thanks for reading my blog!
