Share Your Thankful World..

This week is the American Thanksgiving Day (on Thursday).  The next day is what has come to be known as “Black Friday”, because all the merchants lose their fool minds and America shows its greedy and capitalist side, by buying and buying and buying in preparation for Christmas.

Here in the UK we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but we do have Black Friday when everyone goes nuts and spends a fortune they haven’t got as the tills ca-ching and the plastic gets so hot through use it starts to melt.
Why do we do it? Is it worth it? And do the recipients actually appreciate it?
In my previous experience, Because it was expected, No, and definitely NO.

QUESTIONS: (and graphics cuz I thought they were cute)


Are you an Early to bed, early to rise person, a night owl and day sleeper/dozer, or an ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’ person?

Joke used to be if I’m not in bed by 9 o’clock, I’m going home. Now Maggie puts herself to bed at 9 o’clock and if we don’t join her, she starts to herd us up.

What are some misconceptions about your hobby, should you have a hobby?

Only misconception I came across was the number of people who seemed to think you could only play a piano if you could read music. (I do, and can’t……. well not very well and I get bored trying to work the tadpoles on telegraph wires out).

A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?    psom1

SURPRISE! I understand my brother is here and I’m seeking asylum.
(This is the little penguin Hubby made a few weeks ago)

Aliens have landed…do they come in peace?

No, they’ve come to rescue all the Mars Bars that are in jeopardy should the UK leave the EU (headline Hubby saw today that said Mars Bars are likely to run out after two weeks should Brexit occur)


What are you really, incredibly thankful for this week?

turkeytalkThat Hubby loves me unconditionally, Maggie is well, and I’ve made some new friends.

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.

  1. I’ve said “beautiful” already to another blogger, but it applies to YOUR Share Your World as well….and running out of Mars Bars? Perhaps that penguin (oh the CUTENESS) is bringing you a stash. I’m in the USA, and come to think of it, I haven’t seen many of those around over here either. Maybe I’m just not looking in the right place….Your thankful list is wonderful! ❤

    Fun post! We haven’t had Mars Bars for years here in the US, but hopefully you can hang onto yours!
    I love penguins and the one your hubby made is very cute!
    I am a night owl and slowly becoming more of a morning person. But I am not a hop out of bed wide awake person, like my hubby. I need time to get going in the morning!
    I am always incredibly thankful for the things money can’t buy, the love of my family and friends! Thankful for my health as well!

    • Penguin and Chopper are an item by the look of it on the shelf! (Chopper is a gorilla)
      Mars Bars aren’t what they used to be, in either size or chocolate content. There are many similar bars available which are better value for money. Oh for the days of a bar that was almost as big as your fist and took at least five bites to eat!
      Good things to be thankful for. 🙂
