Sharing My World 2017 Week 37

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


What colour do you feel most comfortable wearing?
Dark blue. And black. So I can sneak around without being noticed. Like a ninja. But without the sword-waving.

What is your favourite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

Andrex Puppies

The Lads.

List at least five favourite flowers or plants.
Five? I’m not sure I know the names of five. I like heather and lavender. These blue ones in my back garden are nice. I expect they’re bluebells because they’re blue and they look like bells. But they might not be.

These are nice too. There’s at least two different types of flowers here, so that makes five!

Favourite Flowers

Some of these might be my favourite flowers (taken at Bodnant Gardens, North Wales)

What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Oh boy, this again. Am I the only person who just goes through life, day to day, without getting particularly inspired? I blame fifty hours at work and then being very tired after all that.

    Love the dogs. They are so well trained, guarding your precious treasures. Is that a book of Irish jokes I see?

      It is! It was a Secret Santa or a stocking filler or something.

    I like your idea of dogs. The ones that don’t bark or slobber are my favorites, too. And I like your flowers, no matter what their name is. I can never remember the names of plants either .
    I hear you about being too busy to be inspired. But I actually did run across a good quote this week, which is rare for me It’s from Neil Gaiman (supposedly): “”Finish what you’re writing. Whatever you have to do to finish it, finish it.” I only remember it because I wrote it on a post-it note and stuck it to my computer monitor, with the other forest of post-it notes. But it’s a good one, I think.

      Once it’s finished, you have something to edit, I guess.
      Stuffed dogs are definitely preferable to real dogs in my book.

    Nice to learn more about you. Shall we send you pictures of flowers with names printed on? 🙂

    When I tutored immigrant women to help them learn English, I would cut out cards and make my own Memory games. When they advanced beyond just “Flowers” level, I cut out pairs of the more common ones so they could learn the names, like tulips, petunias, etc.

    You could always claim to be inspired by the FF prompt, though the scene in this week’s prompt maybe wasn’t super-inspiring. (I shouldn’t complain — I pulled a poignant poem out of its bleakness.)

    Have a nice week!

      When I was little we had a card game where each card had a picture of a flower, and there were two cards per flower in each pack. We played it all the time but I can’t remember the names now 😦
      You have a nice week too!

        Maybe I’ll have an inspired week: a cousin at a family birth-day party yesterday was all enthused about his Pedometer app and walking 20,000 steps a day. So I got enthused and downloaded an app to my phone, too, I was up with the birdies this morning doing Round One. Surely fresh air and exercise will inspire me. 🙂

        How long what lasts? What were we talking about again. 😉

    It’s good to see the lads haven’t gotten tangled up in one of Grandpaw’s tall tales of misfortune yet. That inspires me….

    Nice photos! I suspect if I worked 50 hours in one week I would be very tired too!


  6. September 10, 2017 at 3:08 pm

    Ninja! Perhaps you and Henri the Gninja could trade secrets! 🙂 Beautiful photos!


    • September 10, 2017 at 3:59 pm

      I bet Henri could teach me a thing or two for sure. And some French 🙂

    50 hour work week will def tire you out. Hope the weekend was good to you!


    • September 10, 2017 at 4:23 pm

      I had naps and everything, so I’m ready for the coming week 🙂

    I join you in your lack of inspiration. It is not a weekly event here in south central Massachusetts. In fact, it is rather rare. Maybe not even annually.


    • September 10, 2017 at 4:24 pm

      I’m not a “be inspired” sort of person.

    A pizza inspires me. 🙂

    No, you’re not the only one to go through life without feeling particularly inspired – it’s an overused/ overblown notion. But maybe you’d be more inspired if you weren’t out cat-burgling all hours after work. At least that’s what I’m imagining you’re up to, only wearing black and blue.


    • September 11, 2017 at 12:12 pm

      I probably wouldn’t be as tired, either 🙂

    I have nominated you guys for the Liebster award. (http://mrsdashsayss.blogspot.in/2017/09/liebster-award.html)

    Hope you do accept it and link me back with the reply.



    • September 11, 2017 at 12:14 pm

      Thanks very much for the nomination. I’m not really big on awards to be honest (I never seem to get round to them) but I’ll take a look 🙂

    I like that kind of animal. They don’t shed and I’m not allergic to them. Those are lovely flowers. 🙂 — Suzanne


    • September 11, 2017 at 3:34 pm

      The best kind of animal for inside the house 🙂


  13. September 16, 2017 at 8:28 am

    Looks like you had an inspired moment with this blog, at least, Draliman 😀 Extra Pawkisses 🙂 ❤


  14. September 16, 2017 at 11:03 pm

    Cute pups 😀 The only kind I like are stuffed as well.


    • September 17, 2017 at 5:24 am

      Less mess, less noise, less walking them at 6 o’clock in the morning 🙂
