The World According to Ythika

Go on, jump in! Hi there ,
I'm Ythika the Purple Giraffe. Please stick around and get to know me.

My Loves:

My Man and my little girl and boy, and of course, the rabble that makes up the rest of my family - that does include my mother and grandmother even though I wouldn't really call them rabble, they are remarkable women.

My Other Loves:

Giraffes - obviously;
Most styles of music - I prefer listen to pop, rock, etc. and prefer to play a more classical style;
My clarinet - not so much my E-flat - who but its mother could love an E-flat clarinet;
My cat - Rimsky-Kittikov, commonly known as Rimsky or just plain Rim. She is also known as the White Russian, the Mad Russian, the Sphinx and Ding (after a cartoon duck who can't fly - Rimsky can't climb). She is now 19 and going slowly;
Reading - I've been reading a lot of story books lately. Usually over and over again.
smiley - and hot chocolate (there should be a smiley for hot chocolate) - doesn't just about everyone;

My Hates:

My E-flat clarinet - it's an indifferent-hate relationship - I play it because if I play my B-flat for too long my hand feels like it wants to fall off;
The bad teachers that I have had who destroyed my enthusiasm for certain subjects;
"Good Advice" - and don't you get a lot of it when you are pregnant or have just had a baby. Thankfully it slows down after a few years.
Things I can't get to work properly - like the download function on my new digital camera.


What more is there to say - I'm boring!!
