Spontaneous? Who? Me?

Fandango’s FPQ today is

Do you consider yourself today to be more of a spontaneous person or more of a stable person? Which characteristic in others, spontaneity or stability, do you prefer? Why?
I’d probably be seen as an old stick in the mud or a fuddy duddy as I tend to be set in my ways. I like roots and feeling on solid ground rather than flying by the seat of my pants.
I can’t even be spontaneous about what to have for dinner! How sad is that?
Maybe in my younger days I was a little more adventurous and acted on impulse, sort of open my mouth before I’d put my brain into gear kind of thing.
Hubby and I were spontaneous in Weymouth once when we danced around a maypole that wasn’t there. MIL was not impressed (with anything that day actually) and I can still see FIL falling into a shop doorway in fits of laughter at our antics.
You can read about that here

I admire anyone who gets the balance right and can enjoy spontaneity as well as planning. We learned a long time ago that if we planned anything it always went belly up, so now we’ll simply have an idea and go with the flow.

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.

    That was cool, dancing around an invisible maypole.

    Sometimes not planning stuff is the best way to go! ❤
