Thank you, I accept your kind nomination

Jim over at memoriesofatime has kindly nominated me for the Liebster Award.
I’m not really one to partake in such things, but I’m experimenting a little to be honest.
Like Jim, I thought about it for a couple of days before deciding to accept, so here goes:

(Note: if not sure about any of these, do what I did and back track a couple of nominators)

Jim’s 11 questions:

Who is the most important person in your life today?
This has got to be Hubby. He is my rock, keeps me sane though he can drive me nuts at times, but he makes me laugh and still surprises me after 27 years.

Have you seen a good movie lately?ย  What made it good?
We bought Mockingjay Part 2, the final part in the Hunger Games series to complete our set. It was nice to see the Dictators get their comeuppance!

Did your schooling connect to your life?
I hated grammar school, and feel it did me no favours by stripping me of my confidence.
I was told I didn’t have the brains to work in a bank and ended up as a financial analyst for an International one!

What makes you angry?
Politicians and anyone who hurts animals.

For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
My natural gift for music, even though I don’t own a piano anymore.

For a person you loved deeply, would you be willing to move to a distant country knowing there would be little chance of seeing your friends or family again?
Yes. This had already been considered, but we are too old, not qualified, and broke!

What is your most treasured memory?
I have two.
One was arriving in Central Station in Amsterdam on our honeymoon in 1991 and the organ music starting to play just as we came out. It was a magical moment for me announcing my arrival in a foreign country for the first time in my life.
The second was holding my Dad’s hand when he died, knowing he wasn’t alone and surrounded by those who loved him.

Which sex do you think has it easier in your culture?
Tough one this. I don’t think either sex has anything easy in any culture these days.

What is the greatest accomplishment of your life?
Probably going to NZ on my own in 2010 to see my brother.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as your dinner guest?
James Stewart, one of my favourite actors of all time.

What do you like best about your life?
At the moment, it’s simple, basic and totally laid back. Although I had serious doubts, buying the boat and living on it has been a good thing for me.

I have chosen the following six nominees at random

Now for my 11 questions:

What was your worst subject at school and do you think it has improved with age since you left?

If you suddenly had a big win on the lottery, what would you do with the money?

If you could change any one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Would you like to be some form of celebrity, and if so, who/what?

Do you believe in reincarnation and if so, what would you like to come back as?

What has been your best ever purchase?

What was the best thing you did for someone else?

If you were a Superhero, what would your special power(s) be?

What is your favourite pet?

What is likely to make you angry?

Have you ever sung in public on a stage?

Eleven random things about me:

I had some poetry published in Poems for The Open Mind in the 1980s.
I take a size 7 shoe.
I attended a dog psychology course at college and learned I had a dominance problem (my dog did what he wanted)
I hate heights.
I passed my First Aid at Work certificate in 1996, but the sight of blood makes me dizzy.
I had my picture taken with a 20 foot python in 1985.
I hate celery and marmite.
I cannot make custard unless it’s to add boiling water to a packet mix.
I hate spending money if I don’t have to.
I had my ears pierced in 1975. Once was enough.
My favourite colour is green.

Guess that’s it then.
Did I succeed?
thumbs up smile


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
