Rory’s 12 Bloggerz! September 2020

More questions and answers. I love these!!
Thanks Rory. You can all join in too, click here

1. What really lights you up?
Hubby’s smile every morning to start my day

2. When do you think we become old?
When we lose the ability to laugh at ourselves

3. What’s in your fridge right now?
Unfair! Have just stocked up, so it’s got a week’s supply of yogurt, cheese, tomatoes, grapes, carrots, milk, beetroot, mayonnaise, bottled filtered water.

4. Never mind three wishes give me one good fantasy which would be … ?
We won the lottery and emigrated to NZ with no problems whatsoever.

5. How do you think your readers see you as the writer of your blog as a person away from your blog?
I hope they envisage me as the same.

6. How do you wish to be seen and interpreted as a person away from your blog by the readers of your blog?
See above, and hopefully as a nice genuine person.

7. Do our fears start with our DNA?
Nope. Neither of my parents or siblings are afraid of spiders. I know how mine started, and it was nothing to do with DNA.

8. What is the truest quality of life in your opinion?

9. What do you think the secret is to you letting yourself go?
Depends how:  we let ourselves go (downhill) when we’re feeling unhappy, lonely, or depressed.
But letting yourself go when in good company and having a good time? Different kettle of fish, and the secret is in the company you keep.

10. What stops you from being the truer version of you or are you already the truer version of you?
I am who I am, I like who I am, and would not want to be any other way.

11. What are 7 things you have learned about blogging since you started your blog that would be beneficial to other bloggers right now?
Confidence you can do it.
Doing it.
Taking part in challenges and commenting expands your exposure.
Being polite.
It’s a caring community.
You will have something in common with someone somewhere.
You are never alone.

12. Should we care what other people think about us?
I don’t. If people don’t like me as I am, that’s fine and their choice.
I kicked being what was expected or how people thought into touch years ago.

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. Good sensible answers and yes, at least this blogger sees you as a warm, caring and very lovely person IRL. Who loves dogs and her hubby and eating healthy. You’re amazing to know! ❤

  2. Sadje says:

    Very nicely answered Di. I do see you as a caring, kind and genuine person.

  3. murisopsis says:

    I will second Melanie’s comment! I feel like I’d recognize you and Maggie on a walk and we’d have a nice chat before parting… That’s kind of the feeling on many of your posts!

    Marvelously answered Di, it’s always funny seeing how at times only one of the questions has a relatable content to readerships. So l’ll be different and obvious – if not DNA then what started the 8 legged freak fear?

    • My sister threw one at me when I was a kid, then laughed as I turned green and threw up in the dirt. My fear has been with me ever since (some 60 plus years now I guess) though I am working on it and can at least tolerate the smaller ones now.

      • aguycalledbloke says:

        Yeah, l can see how a fear like that develops under those circumstances .. one of my deep seated and rooted fears was my father’s bullying of me which started when l was very young, it disappeared the day he died. I had gotten better as l aged, but that man scared me so much when l was young by the things he did it stayed with me till well into my forties a s strong terror. Once l hit 40, l stopped caring about him and it became lesser as a problem. So l do understand the spider thing – for me when l was young spiders became pets.

      • We had slow worms and lizards. As you know, mice and snakes don’t bother me.
        I know what you mean though. Sis and I aren’t close and since Mum died, that distance has extended. I don’t let anything she does or say affect my life now.

      • aguycalledbloke says:

        No, my sister and l will never be close again following the fiasco of my father’s death. We were not really close before him dying, but now – well when our mother dies, l will cease to have a sister.

      • Similar story Rory. With my Mum gone now, there is no need for me to visit my home town.

      • aguycalledbloke says:

        I think the biggest enemies sometime Di come from within our very own families sadly.

      • I’ve given up trying to work out why. A lot of hurtful things were said when my Dad died in 1996, and when we left the area in 2007, I had a lot of verbal animosity thrown at me too. I’m just glad neither of my parents are here to see this sorry state of affairs.
