A Few of My Favourite Things ..


Last week, a friend asked me what my favourite season is. This was not an easy question for me. I suspect that this is a typical Pisces problem – being indecisive.

According to an article from All Womens Talk, Pisces people are known to be indecisive:

“The Pisces can be indecisive. You definitely weigh your options in any situation and that’s not a bad thing. It’s good to not act hastily. But being indecisive can be a problem if struggle to arrive at a decision to the point it stresses you out or it takes you a tremendously long time to do so. Make a habit of weighing the pros and cons to help you make decisions.”


So, back to the question about my favourite season:

  • I love winters in Durban (where I grew up). Winter, for me, is really the best time of year in Durban.
  • I love summer because I love sunshine. But I absolutely hate summer in Durban because I can’t stand the humidity.
  • I love spring because it is the season of new growth and new beginnings, and because it marks the end of cold winters here in Cape Town.
  • I love autumn because of the glorious colours in nature. This is particularly true of the Stellenbosch winelands … ahh, everyone should see how beautiful the winelands look in Autumn.

A Few of My Favourite Things (the Musical)


Some of us might be old and lucky enough to remember the delightful musical, The Sound of Music. As a young child, I loved watching this musical, and I think that I can remember most of the (very famous) song lyrics.  ‘A Few of My Favourite Things’ is one of the songs from the musical, sung by Julie Andrews, who played the role of Maria. Some of the lyrics of the song are:

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things.


When the dog bites,
When the bee stings,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel so bad.

This one is easy – the Atlas Floor-Standing Bidet. I grew up always having bidets in our homes, so I appreciate having an attractive and comfortable bidet. For me, the Atlas Floor-Standing bidet is the one that I would choose.
