Spilling the beans...#Blogtober14 Day 18

Its been a baking weekend so far, I have made a dozen teacup cakes for my mom-in-laws birthday which is today, I have also baked a funfetti cake for Riaan's nephew's 2nd birthday for tomorrow, I'm still busy icing and decorating it, and I've made a Nutella Chocolate Torte cake for my brothers 21st birthday, which is also today!! I promise I'll do a post on all of the cakes tomorrow!

I love a good secret - who doesn't. I am so good at keeping secrets because I forget them! Well most of them... I figured that spilling the beans, or sharing a secret as per today's prompt, doesn't necessarily have to be something that no one knows, maybe just something that you guys don't know. So I'm going to share 3 things with you - 1 that alot of people know, 1 that only my close girl friends/family know, and 1 that I think only Cindy and Riaan (and maybe Melanie) know.

The one that alot of people know
I am OCD! It's bad! Especially when it comes to papers being punched skew! My juniors never hear the end of it if they punch papers skew. I'm also OCD when it comes to measuring ingredients for my baking, it has to be precise! Nothing more, nothing less.

The one that only my close girl friends/family know
I hate going to the gynae (Sorry boys!). I wouldn't say I'm petrified of going, I get anxious, I seriously hate it! I would rather visit the dentist, or go for a full body wax, or go on a 10km run than go the lady doctor. This stems from my first experience going, I was only 15, I had ovarian cysts, not one but many on both ovaries. They were treated and are gone, but I'm scared that whenever I go for a check-up they may find something else. Cancer runs in my family.

The one that hardly anyone knows
I want children, everyone knows that! I love babies and they love me. I don't want them just yet though, we're going to give it a couple of years. What everyone doesn't know is that I'm petrified of not being able to have them. Due to said issue above. It also contributes to my fear of the lady doctor. Also, I want at least three, and one must be a girl! Riaan's family has strong male genes so we'll have to keep having babies until we have a girl!!

Well that was weird, getting so personal on the blog... I have a few other secrets, but they are not mine to tell. I do believe that in time everything gets revealed.

Any secrets you feel like spilling?? I'm turning on anonymous comments for the next 24 hours, so feel free to spill the beans!

  1. I have a slight fear, too, that when we decide to have kids, I won't be able to have them. Of course I also tell my husband that if I get pregnant right away, I'll be 543% more thankful for birth control through the years!

    1. Hahahaha Dorrie, you and me both!! The fear is real!!

  2. the fear of not being able to have kids does not go away after the first one! (well at least not for me).

    can't wait for the cake post. yummy!

    1. Oh goodness, well, atleast hubby and I have a 5 year plan, no kiddies anytime soon, so no use in stressing about something I have no control over, right!!
