Sharing My World 27-06-2022

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

What’s your favourite way to spend a day off? If you’re retired, what’s something you now include in your schedule that you dreamed about while employed?
It depends on the weather, but preferably I’ll go somewhere nice in the morning, have lunch at home, have a nap and then PS5/gardening/sitting outside in the afternoon.

My “somewhere nice” from a couple of weeks ago (Trelissick Gardens, Cornwall)

Now that Covid isn’t so strictly monitored and folks can go out and about again, are you into after-work happy hours?
That sounds like a thing from 1990s American films. I work from home, anyway!

What physical traits do you share with your relatives? (Example: I have my mother’s nose)
I’m quite like my dad. I especially have to watch that I don’t walk hunched over!

How long does it take you to decide if you like someone or not?
I tend to stay quite neutral to people for a while. First impressions are not always accurate. I was told when I got to university that we’d spend Freshers’ Week making loads of friends and the rest of the year trying to get rid off them. So no snap decisions!

      Ha! I never realise I’m hunching until something reminds me.

    I too am like my Dad. I too have developed the hunch!

    So, have you gotten rid of all of those friends yet?

      There’s one tenacious hanger-on. On a completely unrelated note, may I borrow Zeeba? I have a little “job” for her…

        Ha! I actually thought of that way of “getting rid of friends” as soon as I hit submit.

          Ninja on a Skateboard would also be quite effective in a pinch. In fact, many of the Shelf would do the trick…

    Thanks Alistair for Sharing Your World! Careful about that hunched over thing. It sneaks up on a person without warning and suddenly there you are! Relying on a stick to stand up straight. It sucks in case you wondered. Your pictured “happy place” is beautiful. I can see going there to hide from all those friends you never lost from college. 😉 Have a wonderful week!

      I expect I walked around the gardens all hunched over 😦

      It is a beautiful garden. You need to get there early though – even in June it was getting busy as I was leaving.
