Share Your World 4-22-19

Melanie’s Questions this week:

  1. Was the last thing you read digital or print?
    Ah: it was the news headlines on my laptop. Does that count as both?
  2. Are you more an extrovert or introvert?
    Ah 2 D2: I have my days of both, but although I’m content to join in conversations and be a bit of laugh, I also like to sit on the sidelines and people watch.
  3. How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person?
    Very different! I’d hoped for being married once, having at least 6 kids and being a housewife with a part time job!
    Reality: Divorced and remarried, , no kids apart from those I fostered and Partner’s 2 (not my ex-husband), I’ve been driving for over 40 years (never entered my head as a youngster), I sort of had a career in the bank, and I blog!
  4. Do you think about dying?   Does death scare you?  Why or why not?
    Yes and No.
    I’m getting on, as is everything and everyone I know. I wake up in the morning and won’t be surprised to find Maggie forever sleeping beside me. It’s the best I could possibly wish for her. I worry about being left on my own, then worry about leaving the ones I love on their own, so I can’t have it both ways.
    Death doesn’t scare me, more the means of my exit, which I hope will be quick, painless and I know nothing about it. Once I start something, I don’t like to hang around.

Gratitude Bonus Question:  Who has been the kindest to you in your life?
I have been fortunate to experience and receive kindness many times in my life. But if there is anyone who deserves this accolade, it has to be the two ladies at the bus stop who held me when I cried the day we were told I didn’t need chemo.

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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one whose life turned out very different from what I imagined. And LOL to your answer to #1.

  2. Aw! That gratitude answer gave me a bit of smoke in my eyes. That’s beautiful! Thanks Di for Sharing Your World with everyone! 🙂

    • I was unable to hug my Mum, and must have looked bit of a wreck with tears streaming down my face, Maggie’s lead in one hand a a poo bag in the other. They were wonderful and we had a group cuddle until their bus came.
