Sharing My World 2016 Week 7

It’s time again for Cee’s Share Your World.


What are you a “natural” at doing? 
I can’t really think of anything I’m a “natural” at. I’m pretty good at having naps at the drop of a hat I guess.

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?
I like having an upstairs to go to at the end of the day. However, I do worry about the stairs when I get older. I may end up in a single-storey house at some point in the future.

Okay at the moment...

Okay at the moment…

What was your favourite subject in school?
Physics, I guess. I also liked English, but only half of it. Lessons (and exams) were split into “English Language” and “English Literature”. It was the literature I never got on with. All those old books, and worse, the poetry… :-(.

Complete this sentence: If only the rain…
… would stop already. We’ve hardly had a day without rain all year. Even if it starts off looking okay, it rains later on. People are getting sad and grumpy :-(.

Nice start, didn't last.

Nice start, didn’t last.

    OMG…all that rain would have me on snit-depresants!

    😂😂 sorry about the rain.
    I’m sure it’s bound to stop soon.

    Sorry you are having so much rain but it sure will make your spring and summer beautiful! When we get a lot of rain here (which is unusual) it makes everything pop out a beautiful green and bright colors.

      I’m sure the grass and flowers are beautiful colours here but it’s hard to tell through all the rain 🙂


      • February 21, 2016 at 6:45 pm

        Hahaha! I’m sorry you are having so much rain that you can’t even enjoy the beautiful colors. Does it rain like that all year long?


        • February 21, 2016 at 6:47 pm

          We’ve certainly had more rain these past couple of years (all year) than we used to 😦


          • February 21, 2016 at 7:16 pm

            Maybe it is time to move to a drier climate? Move to the American desert. You won’t see much rain at all — except for the last few years. LOL!

    Send a bit of that rain our way. They’re rationing water here in Pune. There was a poor monsoon. Well done on the questions. 🙂 — Suzanne

      It’s a shame that there are places with too much rain and places with too little. I hope you get some rain soon 🙂

    When it rains enough to push the water level up to the second floor, those pesky stairs won’t be a problem for your aching joints anymore! Gotta accentuate the positive! I’m assuming you know how to swim.. 😉


    • February 21, 2016 at 6:08 pm

      Hey yeah. I could swim upstairs! After rescuing my TV, PS4… and some food if there’s still room!


      • February 22, 2016 at 2:25 am

        Don’t worry… I think chileh floats!


        • February 22, 2016 at 8:30 am

          I’ll construct some little chileh life rafts just in case…

    Love that glowing cloud cover.

    You can always install a stair climbing chair. It’s also good for moving the piles of laundry up the stairs so you don’t have to carry it 🙂


    • February 21, 2016 at 6:10 pm

      I was thinking that one day I might need a stair lift, but if they’re also good for lugging around laundry, maybe I’ll advance my plans!

    I hated the literature bit too but it ended up being my best o level grade. Perhaps I should hate subjects more, like my Bulgarian. What am I saying, I already do! That’s that idea down the pan! I know what you mean about the stairs, it’s awful to think ahead but I think it’s natural. We’re already in the process of moving our kitchen back upstairs in preparation for old age. Of course, that is years off yet (she lied) 😉


    • February 21, 2016 at 6:22 pm

      I only got a “B” in my literature O Level. I really didn’t like it at all 🙂
      I started thinking ahead when I reached mid-40s. Feelings of mortality came crashing in!

    You had a nice start anyhow to your day. Naps are good for you. 😀


  9. February 21, 2016 at 9:10 pm

    A writer that only half like English and not the literature part. Interesting. Let me take a nap and think on this. 🙂


    • February 22, 2016 at 8:25 am

      A bit weird maybe, but I find those old books very boring. If we’d done some modern stuff instead of Dickens and Shakespeare, I might have enjoyed it more!

    If you can already ‘nap at the drop of a hat”… wait just about ten more years. I fall asleep as soon as I tilt my head. Reclining in my desk chair at school- A DEFINITE No-No!!! Relaxing to watch TV… It doesn’t really matter what the channel happens to be… I’ll never know?


    • February 22, 2016 at 8:25 am

      It’s nice to be able to drop off whenever. I have more trouble when I actually go to bed!

    I’m a fellow natural at taking naps. Hey, gotta be good at *something*, right? 😉

    I share the first one with you.. I can take short naps like that. So much rain, we need some here in our part of the world.

    I found high school literature/poetry classes quite boring, too. I especially didn’t like the instructor attempting to tell me what the poet meant by such and such a poem. I was already a poet and truly dreaded dying famous (hahaha!) and having my poetry analyzed line for line.


    • February 22, 2016 at 8:32 am

      All that analysis takes what fun there might have been out of it altogether.
