I have been looking at loads of photos and videos.. of holidays, renovations, fun times with family and friends. It's amazing how much one forgets... and it's one of the reasons I so enjoy documenting my life with the camera.
I have loaded 3 links to webshots... with slideshows of...
(1) Our old home in Fish Hoek (Cape Town, South Africa). My mum's place, I stayed here with my brother for a couple of years, and then a further year of married life... prior to us moving to London. Mum then let the place out to holiday makers for a few years and has since sold it.
(2) Our first buy. Wimbledon (London, England), 2004. We bought a flea pit of a one bedroomed flat and gutted it and did it up over two years, and sold it for a decent profit in 2006. We worked all day at our full-time jobs, then spent every evening and weekend working on the flat.
Good thing hubby has the skills and technical experience and know-how.. and I have the creative eye... and we both had the passion. Living in a building site aint fun though, so we were happy when we sold it.
(3) Our second buy. An investment home... a 2 bed/2 bath townhouse in Randburg (Johannesburg, South Africa). Well located and in a lovely complex, it's easily let and was a good investment.
