31 Random Things about Me

A few years back something like this was going around on social media, and I really enjoyed reading about my friends. So I thought a post like this would be a good way for you to catch up with me, and see how well you really know me...
  1. I can't sleep with dirty feet or teeth. At the very least I have to clean them (my feet) with a wet wipe, and swirl some mouthwash in my mouth before I get into bed.
  2. While pregnant with Sam I started eating red meat for the first time in 15 years.
  3. I hate toilet spray that smells of food stuff. Strawberries and Cream is my worst!
  4. When I was 13 years old I led worship with Matt Redman while he was on tour in Cape Town.
  5. I'm not a very good cook, but I do enjoy baking and decorating.
  6. If I had the chance, I would totally do school/uni over again (I'm a bit of a nerd like that).
  7. I am an avid Man United fan, and once, when I was in the UK, was invited to a training session. Sadly I couldn't go as it was in another city the day before my flight back to SA (we tried changing my ticket and everything).
  8. I always knew I'd marry an "Andy". Granted, for a while there I was hoping for Andy Roddick...
  9. I've witnessed a miracle healing on a bus back to Cape Town from Youth Week in Magaliesberg. It was amazing!
  10. I have an eidetic memory.
  11. I reckon I'm borderline OCD. I order my clothes (and laundry) in ROYGBIV, with all hangers in one colour, all facing the same direction.
  12. I love to read, and when I start a book usually finish it in a day or two.
  13. I only sleep on the left side of a bed - even if I'm alone in it.
  14. I was once in a reality tv show. I lasted 5 out of 10 weeks. It was a mix between Idols and Big Brother. I couldn't sing in public for a while after that.
  15. I'm a 'Grammar Nazi'.
  16. I love hotels. I think it's the pillows.
  17. My toenails are always painted, and they never clash with my finger nails. They're either painted the same colour, or they're nude/French manicured. And I do them myself - partly because I do a pretty decent job, and partly because I struggle to pay for it (probably because I can do a decent job).
  18. I change into pajamas when I get home from work/church - even if I'm going back out later.
  19. I fall asleep rubbing one foot over the other.
  20. At 16 years old while visiting a friend in the UK, to save money we slept on York train station one night.
  21. I have trichotillomania: an anxiety disorder characterized by pulling out strands of hair.
  22. I seriously love the sweet, sweaty smell of breastfed-baby poo.
  23. I play the piano and tin-whistle, despite not being able to sight read any music.
  24. I've always wanted four children: boy, boy, girl, boy.
  25. I have two degrees - one in Sport Science and one in Education - but I really wanted to be a doctor.
  26. If I had the finances and opportunity, I would be traveling the world with my family. I love a good holiday balance of relaxation and adventure.
  27. I'm terrible with grooming (it may be a result of a very sporty background) and really wish I could do my hair, apply make up, go for facials etc. 
  28. I always choose vanilla over chocolate.
  29. I love being pregnant, and have been blessed with two super easy and enjoyable pregnancies so far.
  30. My family is very close. I spend a lot of time with my siblings and their families, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
  31. There probably isn't anything random about this list. I think I'm incapable of doing anything random.

Have a good day all!
