Rory is our host for the Friday Four challenge. You can check it out here

Before computers, Smartphones and so on what were you using when writing your stories and creating your literature?
I had a pencil and an ordinary exercise book where I would jot down poetry.
My Mum kept such a book by her bedside, and it was dated 1970.

What type of games do you enjoying playing online?
I don’t play online, but I have a solitaire package and cribbage on my laptop.
What age were you when you first started reading and what were you reading at that age?
I was reading E Nesbit’s Five Children and It, The Phoenix and the Carpet and The Railway Children in junior school, so was about 7
How do you prevent boredom entering into your life and are you able to list 6 effective ways in which others could introduce to stop it from entering theirs?
Try not to have the same meals on specific days  and do the usual mundane things in a different order, (though I appreciate some people have to have this kind of routine)
Get outside even if just for a walk or to go shopping,
Try a new hobby and explore your creative side (or find it),
Experiment in the kitchen,
If you can, get up late at least once a week,
Ditch the TV or at least remove it from the bedroom.


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.
