Share Your World: my response for 15th August

Here are my answers to the SYW questions I posted earlier.
1. Do you prefer to live in a single story property like a bungalow, a high rise apartment, or a house?
Our first home together was a rented ground floor flat, our second a one bedroom cluster home (everyone had a corner so only two outside walls), our third a semi detached house, fourth a bungalow, fifth the cottage, sixth the boat, and this bungalow is our seventh home.
I think Hubby would agree that the best was the boat for the freedom, peace and simple life it offered.
With property, we prefer to be on one floor so the bungalows and cottage suited us best. Add the fact that they were all detached, it was lovely to have no attached neighbours.

2. If you won a large amount of money on the lottery, would you want publicity or keep things quiet and low key?
Keep things quiet definitely. If not, I would be extremely popular for all the wrong reasons and have relations I’d never even heard of contact me to ‘get in touch’.

3. How do you like your eggs? (No, this is not a trick question)
I like mine fried with a runny yolk to dunk my sausage in for breakfast, boiled in salads or sandwiches, or poached on toast. I don’t mind scrambled or as an omelette as long as they are light and fluffy, and if I am cooking a frittata, then baked is also an option.

4. If cars were no longer available, what would be your choice of transport?
Horse and cart. I love the idea and if #2 applied, would have no worries about vet bills, care and stabling. Plus our roses and rhubarb would flourish, and we wouldn’t have to have a lawn mower!

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.

    That was great and I love that you added photos. I still haven’t figured out how to do that when commenting – only when writing an original post on my site do I know how to add pix.
    Oh, my mister would love to live on a houseboat and I find the idea both exciting and relaxing but I get unbelievably seasick. It’s a shame really because the hubs goes fishing on his boat every Saturday – even takes the grandkids along sometimes – and I tried to join in the fun but it’s a no-go for me. 🤢
    Love your idea of the horse & buggy; a win-win solution!

    • I’m not very good on a boat either, so was really surprised at how stable we were. It was a lovely life, and if health hadn’t been an issue, the chances are we’d still be on it.

    I’d be on a push bike. I love cycling but live in a hilly area, so don’t go out much anymore

    Lovely answers Di

    Wow you’ve had a lot of homes! How cool! A horse and cart sounds wonderful too!

    A detached cottage would be my dream 🙂

    • We had that 2007 to 2014, but it was actually the old village school built in 1847 that had been converted to a private residence in the 1950s. If we could have picked it up and put it somewhere else, it would have been perfect, but we were on a main road, and the eurofighters flew overhead every day. Maggie got so fed up with it, she once put her front paws on the fence and barked at the sky!
