Sharing My World 07-10-2019

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World. I’m going for the sci-fi logo this week.

Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat) a good thing, a bad thing or a mixture of both?
It’s simply the most amazing thing, all that instant information, keeping up with friends etc!

It’s the work of the devil, so much false information, never talking to friends in person etc!

It depends on how you use it.

Are you camera shy or do you pose for the camera with confidence?
I never react when it looks like I’m going to be in a photo so I don’t look stupid grimacing with my hands up or something. I just very casually drift away out of shot. See that indistinct blur at the edge of all the family photos? That’s me, that is.

Is there anything you’ve kept from younger years for sentimental reasons alone?
One or two things. One is “Cuddly Bear”, a little wooden bear which belonged to my Mum when she was little and she gave him to me when I was little. He’s a little the worse for wear after all these decades.

Childhood friend

Cuddly Bear – my childhood friend

Do you like to decorate for different holidays?
Well, there’s only Christmas which requires any decorating. I need to be in the right frame of mind before putting up a tiny tree and an ornament or two. Most of the time I can’t be bothered but at some point in the run up to Christmas I’ll be all in the “Christmas spirit” and then up goes the tree.

    I can’t quite make out “Cuddly Bear’s” face. He’s been loved until he’s almost unrecognizable but still lovable. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

      I got very upset with him when half his face fell off πŸ™‚

    Cuddly Bear seems to be hanging his head in shame because he chewed up the cap of that pen. Poor thing…

      Maybe I should feed him more. Where’s Buster…?

    Hahahaha would want to see one of those family photos. Awesome postπŸ˜†

    Both points are definitely true about social media.
    Cuddly Bear is adorable!
    (I still have most of my dolls and stuffed animals that reside on the highest shelf in the wardrobe. πŸ™‚ Don’t tell anybody on social media.)

    Thanks so much for Sharing Your World. Cuddle Bear is NOT worse for wear, he is simply well loved. What a wonderful treasure! ❀

    I’m gonna start putting up my middle finger when someone takes my photo…then years from now when I am long gone, people will say…damn, Mer was a total bitch! Bwahahaha. πŸ™‚

      You’ll be known throughout history as “Middle Finger Mer” πŸ™‚

    I hope your kidding about the pictures. Please do try to have at least a few. My mother hated having her picture taken and she passed long before the digital age. We have very few photos of her and it makes me sad.

      Half-kidding. I don’t like being in photos but if someone asks I will. So there are plenty around πŸ™‚

    That little bear is so cute and so full of memories. Isn’t it great to have someone who was there your whole life. Granny has two little puppets too, we have shown them on the bloggie a little while…ages ago πŸ˜€ Granny needs the special X-mas feeling too for the tree, Draliman, but when it’s in…well..it’s in😺Pawkisses for a Happy TuesdayπŸΎπŸ˜½πŸ’ž

      Yes, that little bear has been with me through thick and think πŸ™‚

    I have a couple of stuffed animals from when I was a kid. One has all but fallen apart though!
