Here are Melanie’s Share Your World questions and she says:

2022 Is bearing down on the world.   In my opinion 2021 was 100% better than 2020, but it hasn’t been without its own set of problems and fresh worries.  I’m hopeful that 2022 will somehow see a return to ‘life before Covid’ , but I also realize that’s a foolish hope.  

At 12 a.m. on December 31st/Jan 1st, what will you be doing?  (use your own time zone please)
In years past, we used to ring the Mums and Dads at midnight to wish them a Happy New Year. In later years, we would go outside with a drink (usually tea or coffee, once water!) to toast in the New Year, but these days we’re still awake and toast each other.

Is there a tradition you have for New Year’s Eve?
We start the New Year with a clean house. The tree and dekkies are taken down a couple of days before New Year’s Eve and we move all the furniture to hoover behind it, then have all the knicknacks off the shelves to dust. We have a few more this year!

Do you have any hope or reason you find that next year will be better?
We are hopeful and optimistic about finding a new dog. None will ever replace Maggie, but there is a pup out there waiting to find us.

What’s the biggest personal lesson you learned during 2021?
The government are out to kill us all one way or another and we can only rely upon ourselves to keep ourselves safe. We can still be sociable from a distance without causing offense, and our friends are of the same mindset so we look out for each other.


Describe in 1-3 words how you feel going into 2022
Loved, hopeful, optimistic



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.

    I concur with your conclusions – we must rely on our own common sense to stay safe!!
