Melanie always included an optional gratitude section at the end and I see no reason to change that.
Here are this week’s questions:
- Does your spouse/partner (or do you) help with the household chores?
- What is your least favourite chore?
3. As a kid, did you have to do chores to earn your pocket money/allowance?
4. Did you save any of your pocket money or spend it all?
Sometimes we take so much for granted
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 absolutely love your gratitude post ❤ 🐾 🍀 Have a good week!
Thanks Claudia. It’s lovely isn’t it.

I wasn’t paid for chores – we just had to do them… Personally I hate to dust and Sparky is supposed to handle that (but he puts it off until I can’t stand it any longer and do it myself! I saved nearly every penny I earned – and was lucky to be able to pay for most of my college in addition to some scholarships and a couple little loans. I was able to be debt free after 3 years!! It really was all due to savings (and the interest earned)!
Hi Val. Thanks for joining in. I’ve always been a saver and would work on the rule of thirds………. a third to Mum for my keep, a third to savings, and the rest was ‘mad money’.
I encouraged the boys to earn their pocket money, and extra was up for grabs for washing the car. £2 a wash, £4 for a wash and hoover inside and £5 if they polished it inside too. One lad was saving for his football boots and did the full set, even the steering wheel which shot out of my hands as it was so shiny!

What is your least favourite chore? – Cleaning the bathroom.
As a kid, did you have to do chores to earn your pocket money/allowance? – Yes
Did you save any of your pocket money or spend it all? – I did spend it all. I used to go into town most Saturdays with my brother and liked going into ‘Woolworths’ or ‘Knees’ toy sections.
I used to save half of my pocket money and spend the rest on sweets until I was older and got hooked on buying records.
I didn’t start collecting records seriously until around 1975…and I haven’t stopped since.
I can’t remember the last CD I bought. I think it was probably one by Il Divo

Does my wife help with the household chores? Yeah, I guess she does. I was just out pruning a tree this evening and she was at the bottom (I was up the tree) pointing out the branches I’d missed.
What is my least favourite chore? Oh, that’s just too long a list. My favourites are those I can watch movies whilst doing. Like washing the pots.
As a kid, did I have to do chores to earn my pocket money? No, not really. I guess I’d have gotten pocket money anyway, but I did chores all the same. If I hadn’t then I’d have felt … ungrateful or something.
Did you save any of your pocket money or spend it all? I spent most of it on sweets but I did save some in a bank account that I still have to this day. Admittedly there’s a huge gap between what I had then and what I have now. And I spend a little less on sweets now (but not much less). 😀
Thanks Robert. I guess I help Hubby with the DIY with ‘you missed a bit’ when he’s painting.
Haha – yeah, that’s the way. 😂
