Day 4: what would my superpower be?

I’ve often wished and dreamed about having a superpower. Always fanciful and exciting and totally impossible.

Over the last year and a bit the only thing I’ve really wished i had was a super photographic memory. The ability to remember and recall anything that i have had the privilege to learn. If i could utilize more than 10% of my brain, and retain more than the average 20% of information how incredible would that be?

What would i do with this power? I’d get myself set up successfully self-employed, and share my knowledge and skills with individuals who want to achieve more than they ever dreamed through mentoring and tutoring.


February blog challenge Day 3: My Dream home

I have a very good idea of the type of home i want. It must be on or very close to the beach. It doesn’t have to be huge, just a cosy, warm and comfortable cottage with lots of sunlight and gorgeous views- a retreat where my family and I can find inner peace and utter relaxation. To get an idea of the decor for each room i would love to have you can visit my board on Pinterest 🙂

2 February: 3 Significant Memories from Childhood

The first memory i have from childhood is the day i met my baby brother Dean. I had been with my grandparents while my mom was in hospital and i vaguely remember my brother being almost larger than life. It was like he had magically appeared in my life and taken up residence on my mother’s lap. I was few months older than Aurora  is now.

Some of my favourite memories were with my grandparents. I can’t pinpoint an exact time, but i know i was always happy when i was with them.

This one makes me sad: I’ll never forget for my12th birthday i had a “disco” and my mom went and bought Pop Shop Volume 1 with Kylie and Talking Heads and Rick Astley on LP !!! My dad hired disco lights and we turned the dining room into a full on disco. It was amazing and i was so excited!!! Only 1 kid from my class pitched up… i had been in hospital to have my appendix removed 3 weeks before, and only handed out my party invitations when i got back to school. I had no idea that another boy in my class was having his party the same day – i didn’t get my invite because i was off sick and no one told me… i think this is the reason why i like to plan things well in advance now.
