Sharing My World 2016 Week 40

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World.


Why did you start blogging?
To share my views on life with the world! That didn’t last long however as I don’t really have any, but fortunately I discovered writing challenges and the rest is history.

A piece of clothing you still remember?
Ha, the clothing from forever ago I still remember I still own! There’s the (once) fluffy jacket I used to wear every day to university and then work which finally went in a hole (bought circa 1992). Then there’s the (once) smart blue shirt my mum bought me for interviews to university which I still wear to work sometimes (bought circa 1986). And finally, on Friday I wore a “University of Surrey Beer Fest 1992” t-shirt (under a jumper, mind).

I still wear clothes which are older than some of our employees.

What am I like? πŸ™‚

Who are you trying to reach with your blog?
Whomever wants to read it!

Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?
A stuffed animal? What am I, eight years old?


Hey, where did they come from? Ahem.

The best birthday present ever?
A Sinclair ZX81 computer, back in 1982. My very own home computer! Before they were a thing! It was a huge surprise as it was a large amount of money for my parents back then.

What would surprise me about you?
I don’t know. Meet me and then let me know!

What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week my new car arrived! Very similar to the last one, but a “limited edition” πŸ™‚


Tomorrow is my birthday and I have the day off, so I’m looking forward to that.

        Wishing you a fun birthday! Thanks for the good wishes for my grandson. We just talked to him and he had a great time at his party (he turned 7 years old) πŸ™‚

          Seven is a great age for birthday parties – friends, fun and games and cake πŸ™‚

    I believe it is now your birthday as I type this…. so happy birthday!

    Those stuffies just seem to be begging for a corrupting influence! Maybe I can get Bacon to send Bashful to you next if he survives The Nest….


    • October 10, 2016 at 10:17 am

      Nooo – my stuffies are such sweet, innocent things (much like I’m sure Bashful was before he entered The Nest)…


  11. October 10, 2016 at 3:42 am

    Nice car! And happy birthday! πŸ™‚

    Happy birthday, Ali! πŸ™‚

    P.S. I was half-expecting you’d say “to make my readers cringe with my dark thoughts.” And love the teddies. πŸ˜€


    • October 10, 2016 at 10:19 am

      My teddies are cool πŸ™‚
      You know you like cringing at my dark stories πŸ™‚

    Wait, another new car? I thought you just got one! Go you…zoom zoom!


    • October 10, 2016 at 3:17 pm

      That was two years ago already! It still had a year on the PCP but this one will tide me over until the new models come out πŸ™‚

      All the birthday cake is for me!

    Happy belated birthday, Ali! Your birthday coincides with Canadian Thanksgiving. πŸ™‚
    Nothing wrong with grown-ups having stuffed toys. 😁

    Your answer to number 1 is funny, doc πŸ™‚ I think you let a few of your views on life slip in now and then…
    Happy Birthday! I know it’s the next day but, in my family, birthdays last a week…


    • October 12, 2016 at 7:43 am

      Things were getting pretty sparse from a life-view perspective.
      Thanks! Ooh, week-long celebrations πŸ™‚
