Share Your World – October 30, 2017

Hello and I’m back this week. I went out of town last week, chasing my dreams. I came away having completed one more step towards that, greater clarity of purpose, and a bunch of new learnings.

For now, it’s time for Cee’s SYW…today’s edition.

Where do you eat breakfast?

The day is not started for Che and me without having coffee and toast in bed. We take turns doing this, and the person making the coffee and toast wakes the other one up.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have an evening with?

The Lonely Island comedy troupe. They’re hilarious, versatile, brilliant writers and producers of good social commentary using the medium of comedy.

If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?

I’d love to be an Ent! From the Lord of the Rings! They’re patient, serene, powerful, tall, as old as the trees. Oh wait, they are trees…

Share Your World – October 16, 2017

Another share your world today, after the one yesterday because I responded to last week’s so late. The questions today aren’t so easy.

If you had to move to a country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? 

No, noo, nonoonoo, such a difficult question! I mean there’s Portugal, no brainer. But I also see myself living in Mauritius because…tropical island paradise!

What color would you like your bedroom to be?

Cream coloured. It’s a shade or two darker now. A few shades lighter would be awesome.

What makes you Happy? Make a list of things in your life that bring you joy.

I’m busy with a 100 happy things list – I’m on day 73 and will publish when I reach day 100. For now, here are a few:

  1. My family
  2. Nermal the cat
  3. Taking great photos
  4. Summer is coming!
  5. Good comedy

Share Your World – October 9, 2017

Howdy and welcome to me sharing my world with you this week.  The week of my wedding anniversary and birthday.

So what do I consider to be the most perfect food for me? 

Dahl and rice of course! I love dahl and rice. It’s such a simple food, the perfect protein with all the amino acids my body needs. And it’s scoop-food – bonus!

Am I focused on today or tomorrow?

I want to be focused on today, it is the most relaxing place to be. When I focus on tomorrow I get anxious. I’m working on this becoming the default for me – focusing on today.

If I could interview one of my great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would I ask?

I don’t know the names of my great-great-great grandparents but I do suspect that they must have been very interesting people. On my Dad’s side, they probably lived in Ireland and I’d want to ask them where in Ireland they hailed from. Who knows, maybe I have family out there I’m not even aware of! On my Mom’s side they came from the Iberian Penninsula, Spain and Portugal, and probably lived through some interesting times, maybe even the Lisbon earthquake of 1755.

What inspired me or what did I appreciate this past week?  

I worked at home, and I’m grateful that home is where my office is based.

Share Your World – September 4, 2017

Mondays Cee hosts Share Your World – this is my world this past week. It’s fun to enter.

What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?

Black mostly, although when I wear pink or white tops I get compliments on my choice of colour. My favourite colour is green and I don’t have too much green in my wardrobe. I’ve taken to wearing sandy tan shades and i feel good in them too, very earthy. But 99,9% black pants, at least.

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie).

I’m more of a cat person. I have never owned a dog. My nephew’s favourite stuffed animal is a dog called Ruffles which he sleeps with. So cute.

List at least five favorite flowers or plants.

Roses – love them

Ferns – hardy all year round plant and they look good and green all the time

St. Joseph Lillies – they smell so good

Orchids – my wedding bouquet consisted of a purple orchid – so lovely and different to the rest

All trees, especially the ones found in southern Africa, like the acacia tree. It is so evocative of the African bush.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

The warm spring weather has inspired me to take up my DSLR again which in turn has inspired me to buy a new Kelly Moore camera bag, this time one that can take my laptop too. I have a red B-Hobo right now and it doesn’t fit my Mac.

I’m checking out reviews on youtube and I’ve narrowed the search down to 3. More on this later…watch this space.

 

Share Your World – Week 41

Would you rather take pictures or be in pictures?

Always being the person behind the camera I have very few recent photos of me, so I would like to be the person in the photos for a change. I was looking for a decent head and shoulders pic of me for my speaker bio and the only suitable one was taken 3 years ago. Hope the audience is going to recognise me next week :-).

What did you most enjoy doing this past week?

Playing with my 5 year old nephew on Saturday, building things, watching Disney channel and his drawing of my house and pool. He’s given my pool 6 steps (it has 3) and I am very blessed that he wants to improve my pool :-).

What is your greatest extravagance?

My Suzuki 750GSXR which is sitting in the garage. I think I should sell it.

Which letter of the alphabet describes you best?

S for Steady

S for Sometimes Scared

S for Strict

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

It was my 22nd wedding anniversary on Saturday, I am grateful for finding someone who is still in my life. I am looking forward to my birthday on Wednesday 🙂 – hint hint…presents…
