Today is Thursday 16th April

It is another lovely day here, pity our seedlings aren’t coming out to enjoy it, grrrr!!!

As most of us cannot visit our friends and following on from our little tea party on the drives yesterday, how about this for the next best thing?

It’s a sort of share your house virtual invite without the visitors or washing up.

How many doors does your property have (rooms, back, front etc)
Do you have a separate lounge to entertain your guests or do you prefer to congregate round a table in the kitchen?
Do you have a garden?
Do you have the radio/music on when you have visitors.
Do you prefer a group of guests or just one or two at a time?
Do you provide biscuits or cake?
Do you keep specific crockery (mugs, cups, plates) for visitors only?
Do you have pictures on the wall?
Do you have flowers indoors?

OK, my answers are:
We only have one door in and out of the property, but have six interior doors.
We have a lounge diner, but I would love to have a huge kitchen.
Our garden out back is a good size and now has a greenhouse.

No music or distractions when we have visitors as we like to chin.
These days I prefer to have one or two visitors at a time.
If I’ve made cake, it’s offered, but most times it’s biscuits.
We have a special cup for our neighbour and a set of four matching mugs for other visitors.
We have a variety of things hanging up on the wall, including a 1000 piece puzzle, a photograph of Barney and a framed miniature traditional New Zealand cloak my sister in law made.
I love cut flowers and have them sometimes, but at the moment there are some artificial ones in a vase by the front door and a small posy Hubby put together for me in 1994 when we were in our first house (1990 – 1996).

Welcome to our home:
Take a seat and I’ll put the kettle on. Tea or coffee?

Keep safe everyone.


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.

    Lovely, Di. I have put my answers on my blog. Sorry no pics as hubby is not here to help me put them on. Ours is just an ordinary semi detached house.

    One front main door to come in and out of my apartment. (or flat as I call it.)
    My living space is living space and dining room combined, with a small kitchen. But although small kitchen, plenty of cupboards and workspace to any kitchen I have had in the past.
    I usually have only 2 guests on average and we sit at the dining table. 3 guests may be rare moments. I can follow conversation easy when it’s one or two. It gets hard from 3.
    I don’t have music on as it is awkward for me when having a conversation. It will be mugs of tea. No special mugs for the ocassion. Sometimes biscuits offered if I have them. May be brought by guests.
    In the past when one friend has come over, we may odd ocassion watch a dvd.
    Where I live, there is a communal yard and garden.
    I have one large canvas print on the wall of my cat I last had. Miley.
    I have one plant indoors. My peace lily. I killed my parlour palm some time back. And I have some fake blue little flowers on my dining table that some guests admire.
