QUESTIONS

What would you enjoy if you could do so without someone getting annoyed with you for enjoying it?  It MUST be something you aren’t supposed to enjoy because it is “bad for you”.
Easy: anything in the cream cake or sweet line. MIL always used to make me feel guilty just looking at a doughnut, let alone buying one or eating it, yet she would stuff her face with two or three cakes every day.

Is it okay for men to wear the color pink?
I don’t mind a pink shirt, but I think I would feel uneasy if it were pink socks or perhaps pink underwear.

Can you curl your tongue?
Nope.

What, in your opinion, is the best room to put a fireplace?
In a modern house, definitely a lounge. We loved our log burner in the cottage, which was originally the village school and built in 1867. However, in old houses, having a chimney breast and fireplace in any, if not all, rooms was the norm. Sadly we don’t have one here, either do we have anywhere to put one. Now if we built an extension to the  smallest bedroom and converted it to a lounge diner, we could have a chimney and log burner installed.

Gratitude
Looking across the room knowing no words are necessary, just feeling the love.

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 recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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. Thanks Di for Sharing Your World and an awesome meme for me to share with others! That is a rock??! I thought (at first glance) that it was a hanky someone had embroidered! How delicate and beautiful the art is on that! Wow! What a beautiful memory too! ❤ Judgey fools who try to bully others for 'over eating' should pause and look in the mirror. A long hard look. That sort of treatment always made me go out and buy the biggest cream filled 'naughty' I could find and gobble it all (usually in front of the braying ass, in order to irritate them). We all deal in our own ways, don't we? You're a success story and as long as that's firmly fixed in your mind, no minding the bad mouthers.. Have a great week!

    • Hi Melanie. Oh I have some great and not so great memories of MIL, several of which are in my blog. Tact was not her forte, but I never gave her the satisfaction of seeing me cry. She’d spend a fortune on the latest diet fad, and say I should try it, then stuff her face with normal meals and wash it down with the liquid diet. I laughed in her face when she moaned because she’d put weight on.

    Very revealing answers. I guess I’m very lucky that my MIL is a gem. I think of her like a second mother!

    • My first MIL was OK, but sadly died just over a year after we were married. Hubby’s Mum was a different matter….. difficult, cantankerous, and selfish, but she was his Mum, so I made allowances at first, then saw her true colours, and didn’t like what I saw at all.

    I know a few of these judgmental people too. They usually get their just desserts.
