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

Do you prefer a bath or shower?
Shower. A bath never really ends up making me feel particularly clean. I just end up sweating a lot. Plus, I can’t afford to keep taking baths. I had a girlfriend once in the 90s who suddenly started taking a bath every day instead of a shower. She tripled my water bill ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

What do you do to make a living or during the day? If you are retired what mostly occupies your day? Or if you are a student what are you studying?
I work in IT. Computers and such. I say “have you tried switching it off and on again” a lot.

Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?
Oh boy, is there! This is yet another opportunity to show the most posted image on my blog – the lads!

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Nuffin’, init.

What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?
Have a nice nap at lunchtime. Which I’ve already had.

List at least five of your favourite spices? (excluding salt and pepper)
Oh no, I can’t have Salt N Peppa?

Okay then, in that case I’ll go for Sporty, Scary, Baby, Ginger and Posh.

What can you always be found with?
My phone. Map, calendar, email, camera, texts, authentication apps all in one. Oh yeah, it’s a phone too.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Oh, I don’t know. Let’s go for Christmas, shall we? Christmas inspired me. I was inspired by Christmas. I find running out of money and putting on ten stone highly inspiring.

Happy New Year ๐Ÿ™‚

Sharing My World Week 52

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

If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?
They could help me out with the cleaning. Well, they wouldn’t be “helping me” as I don’t do it at all. They’d be doing it all themselves.

If you were to move and your home came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain?
I’m assuming the “furnishings” include TV and whatnot so I guess it would be personal things I would be bringing. I have some photos and some artwork from my friends’ kids so that would all come. I have a load of photos in albums which haven’t been scanned so they would need to come too. Then of course there’s “the lads”.

What calms you down?
Reading and watching TV. Anything which takes me away from “the real life”, which is presumably why I’m not calm in the first place.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I appreciated Lemsip and similar this week. Kept me going and functional ๐Ÿ™‚

Sharing My World 2017 Week 50

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

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?
That’s an easy question. All of them. The trouble is, the longer I leave them the longer they take. That doesn’t stop me leaving them as long as possible, though. I always have great plans to keep on top of it all but it never really pans out.

At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
I don’t ever really feel “passionate and alive”. I’m usually more “even keel”.

How many times have you moved in the last ten years?
Twice, once into a little rented flat as a temporary measure which lasted five and a half years, and then nearly four years ago into my first ever owned house ๐Ÿ™‚

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?
Okay then, let’s give InspiroBot another whirl.

“Try to be the reason a man gets torn apart by owls.”

Wow, that’s pretty random. Sounds pretty profound, though.

Sharing My World 2017 Week 49

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

Would you prefer a reading nook or an art, craft, photography studio?
None of those. I have my living room for all that. I’ll take a home cinema, please. Big screen, massive sound system, comfy chairs and a great big load of sound-proofing.

Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.)
It’s Sunday and I don’t have anything specific planned, so I guess there’s a chance of some sunshine. Then I’ll remember all the things I have to do before Christmas and there’ll be a sudden squall.

If you could witness or physically attend any event past, present or future, what would it be?
Hmm. I think a week last Thursday. What a day. What a day.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?
I’ve decided to give InsproBot a Christmas break and thus remain uninspired.

If you were having difficulty on an important test and could safely cheat by looking at someone elseโ€™s paper, would you do so?
I hope not. The temptation would probably be there but I would hope not to succumb. I also hope that I won’t need to take any more tests in my life ๐Ÿ™‚

What things in nature do you find most beautiful?

 

StNectan10

 

 

Complete this sentence: When I travel I love to…
Get home again ๐Ÿ™‚

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?
Guru InspiroBot says…

“Ride the dreams”

Yeah!
