Share Your World – 22nd March 2019

I am falling a bit behind this week, I plead illness, which means I probably have more time on my hands, but I have either been sleeping of binge-watching Netflix (watched all of The Order), and some movies. Just cannot seem to be able to concentrate, yesterday and today have been a bit better, so I have been trying to ctahc up on work…including the blog. So Mel is back with another round of SYW


Do You Have Any Guilty Pleasures? Too many to be honest usual soft drinks, chocolate and food in general. I no longer smoke and I rarely drink alcohol and I sure as hell don’t gamble…so nothing out of the ordinary unless you count photography?

What Is The Worst Pick Up Line You Ever Heard? It’s been so long, I honestly can’t remember, not even sure I have received one, wolf whistles – sure but an actual cheesy pickup line…I am drawing a blank, can only think of TV ones.

What Slang Or Trend Makes You Feel Old? Wearing oversized jeans down real low, I have always hated that, isn’t it a tripping hazard? I don’t see the point and I am not interested in what underwear you have on.

What Do You Consider The Most Over-rated Song? I am drawing a complete blank here too, I am sure there are really annoying songs, but I cannot think of an over-rated song, except for maybe our National Anthem, so old school and boring, we have debated here in Australia about changing it, but there seems to be no consensus as to what to change it too.

Instead of a Tender Mercies question, here’s a philosophical one instead:

You Find A Book And Begin To Read Only To Discover That It Is Your Life. You Get To The Point That You Are At Now, Do You Turn The Page Knowing That You Will Not Be Able To Change The Events To Come? Mmmm tough question, but I think I would continue reading, I hate not finishing a book. I like to know how things turn out, for better or worse, I have always wished I could know beforehand, a crystal ball. But then if you knew how things turned out, would you try to change them? If I had not made all the decisions I have made in my life, good or bad, I would not be where I am now.

Of course, if you wish to share a Grateful For Tender Mercies (aka grateful, optimistic or happy) comment, that’s fine too! I have spent the last two weeks since I got home from New Zealand with Shingles, horrible affliction I would not wish on anyone. I am truly grateful for such a wonderful holiday, beautiful scenery, lovely people, perfect (mostly) weather. I am glad we are home safe and sound and I am now happy to be mostly recovered from Shingles…I can at least see light at the end of the tunnel and life is good again.
