Who is Yvette Gray?

Hi Lovelies,

Thank you for taking the time to visit and read my very first blog post. You’re awesome!

Now.  First things first.  I don’t have a clue what I am doing but I am a ‘doer learner’ so I’ll get there eventually.  Besides, I am surrounded by amazing people like you, so I know I’m in safe hands and you’ll help me along the way.  “How am I supposed to help?” you ask…   By letting me know when what I’ve written is crap and telling me what you’d like to hear about.  Thank you in advance my friends.

Ok.  A little about me then…

My husband says I am like an Ikea tester.  If it can be broken, I’ll break it.

Oh and I love cats.  I (we) have two of them.  Their names are Tiga and Quattro.  They’re both girls.  Tiga means three in Indonesian and she was named by a Vet because she only has 3 legs.   I’m glad they didn’t call her Tripod.  She was hit by a car with her previous owner, who wanted her put down.  Thank goodness the Vet had her signed over and did the amputation because now we’re her lucky parents.  She runs the house.  You can guess how many legs Quattro has.  She’s a giant kitten and loves to smurgle.  I’ll let you look that one up if you don’t know what it means.

I love the number 2… and I don’t mean poop either.  I have ‘doubles’ in my life on a daily basis and they’re my signs that everything is as it should be.  They come from everywhere and anywhere.  My husband gets them too.  We call them VERYfications.

I am lucky.  Very lucky.  I won a car in 1998 and win lotto often.  I believe it, so I am.  You should try it!

I am an exercise freak.  It keeps me sane, although my husband might tell you otherwise.  He thinks I’m a nutcase but he loves me anyway.

Baby Aqua is my favourite colour.  Pink and yellow come a close second and third.

If it’s lace, I’ll love it.

Makeup and hair is my thing.  I have been doing it for twenty years.  There’s nothing better than seeing my client’s faces light up when they look in the mirror after I’ve worked my magic.  The strut that follows is the real kicker.  Bee Gee’s eat your heart out.  I have to admit though, sometimes I feel like saying “I’m an artist with a brush, not a witch with a wand!”

I Love food.  A lot.

I have always enjoyed writing, which has brought me here, now, with you.  I am writing a book.  Well, I have written one and I’m in the process of editing it.  But more about that later.blogSleeping in is the BEST.  Especially in freshly washed sheets.

Punctuality is important to me.  If I am running late, which is usually not my fault,  I.  Can’t.  Even.  Deal.

I am a ‘Grateful to have a glass’ kind of person.  Oh and it is always half full.  Unless it’s wine, in which case you can fill that sucker up for me please!!

Everything you say will relate to a song in my head in an instant.  I’ll probably sing it.  Yes.  I am one of THOSE people. #sorrynotsorry

I don’t believe in ‘getting older’.  I believe in ‘getting better’.

I think that’s enough for now.  Hubby is cooking me dinner.  It’s called ‘The doona destroyer’ and it’s the BEST!

Until next time.

Love and Light always,

Yvette xxx

  4. Sitting in the airport waiting for our flight and I just read your first post! LOVE your style of writing, very engaging you talented lady. I can’t believe I’d never heard of the word smurgle, I feel like a disgrace to the cat lady stereotype! Looking forward to future posts and I adore your thoughts on getting better rather than older #nailedit
