Share Your World – 14th August 2018

And Cee is back with another SYW Post, don’t forget to join in the fun;

A class you wish you would have taken? I have done so many classes over the years, I am still taking them, currently, it is on Marketing and Facebook Advertising (wow is that doing my head in), so if there was a class I wanted, I did it. I do not think there is something I wanted but never took, as such. There are probably still things on my bucket list, but nothing is coming to mind.

Are you scared of heights? Good god yes, but it is more than that too, I also suffer from vertigo. Those swirling helicopter videos you see in movies, or if someone is standing on a cliff edge in a movie, they can affect me as well, not quite as bad, but still makes my head spin. Really deep water has the same effect. Weird and interesting side note, if I look at the viewfinder on my camera, my brain does not seem to register the height and I do not get dizzy. I once shot an entire helicopter ride through my viewfinder, I was still terrified, but did not pass out from vertigo. It actually took two people to get me off the helicopter – I was holding the grab rail so tight I could not let go and physically could not climb out of the damn thing, But hell a LOT of people were impressed I got on – me included!

Are you a good cook? If so, do you consider yourself a chef? I am no chef! But my cooking isn’t too bad. I have a few dishes my family always want me to make, Spag Bolognaise, Bacon Carbonara (dairy, egg and gluten-free), fried rice, Caesar salad. I used to bake a lot of slices, cookies and cakes. But now it all has to be gluten, egg and dairy free, there is not as much fun in it.  Plus it is not good for my expanding butt and waistline 🙂

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.  I have so much to be grateful for every week. I feel like I am currently on a roller coaster, with a few lows, but mostly impossible highs. It is a whirlwind of activity, I find I am struggling to catch my breath some days.

Sadly in amongst all of this, we lost our boy Buddy on Thursday evening. We always said he had a huge heart, sadly it was his heart that was his final battle. After a week-long fight (in truth he has been battling since a mysterious illness 12 months ago), it was time to say goodbye. Life feels very strange without him, the other animals are finding it extremely difficult, especially Ms Chloe, who has barely known a single day without him. The joy of animal friendship enormous, alas that it is all too brief.

So I am sorry I have been a bit light on this week, I have not really been around to read as many blog posts as normal either, I am sorry, I will be back with it all soon.

I hope you are having an enjoyable week…
