I saw this Get To Know Me Tag on Books and Bakes 1. This is a great way for new and regular followers to get to know me. It was really fun to answer all these questions.
Nickname: I have various nicknames depending on who is addressing me. I’m “Lin-T-zay” to my mom (now that I’m a mom I realise that I give the Little One crazy nicknames too so this one doesn’t offend me as much). Mr calls me “Love” or “My Love” and the Little One calls me “Mme Mme” (pronounced as Meh Meh).
Star Sign: Pisces
Occupation: Work from home mom.
Hair Colour: Dark Brown
Eye Colour: Hazel (brown and green)

Braces: Yes, during my first two years of High School.
Piercings: Just my ears.
Tattoos: None, but I’m not opposed to getting any.
Left handed or Right handed: Right handed
Best Friend: My first best friend was a girl named Samantha. We attended the same playschool. My parents have a picture of her and I at our school concert. I don’t remember her surname so we haven’t reconnected, but I remember her as a really great friend.
Award: The Liebster Award was my first blog award and I felt so proud and honoured to receive it.
Real Holiday: My first real holiday was to Tsitsikama Lodge and Spa with my family. I loved living in the log cabins and it was the only holiday I can remember spending with my late Aunt Francis.
Theatre Show: My first theatre show was to watch a Charles Dickens compilation at the Baxter Theatre when I was about five years old. My mother won tickets to the show by entering a radio competition, she’s won lots of radio competitions since then.
Concert: The Cape Town Jazz Festival was my first concert. Mr and I try to get tickets every year. I love it, because you can see many acts in one place over two days and it has a great vibe.
Films: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – My dad and I love watching this movie. It is so hilarious and ridiculous. I can watch it over and over again.
The Phantom of the Opera – I must have watched this movie 10 – 40 times. I love singing the lyrics.
The Lion King – I absolutely adored this movie as a child. I still do now. I will probably start watching Disney movies again once the Little One is old enough.
TV Show: Any competition reality show. My Kitchen Rules, Masterchef, House Rules, So You Think You Can Dance?, Idols and The Voice. I love seeing people achieve their dreams.
Book: Animal Farm – George Orwell. This book is as relevant then as it is now.
Quote: It always seems impossible until it’s done – Nelson Mandela

Restaurant: An indian restaurant called Bukhara. All their food is so delicious.
