Share your world – 17th November 2020

I managed to get out of Melbourne to visit a friend for two days on the weekend, woohoo. We still have zero infections and zero deaths and only 2 people still in hospital in Victoria, however there has been a sudden 2nd wave happening in other states. Still have to be ever vigilant and the borders may be locked down for a little while to come. Still, Victoria has plenty to offer for day trips and even a few days away. This week see’s my studio opening back up. I had a portrait session last week and have another booked in shortly. I also have the first of my in person workshops this weekend the first since March! So exciting.

Apparently this week Melanie has selected some Oddball questions for SYW, curioser and curioser as Alice would say…

Oddball Questions:

Is cereal soup? Why or why not? No…definitely not. Cereal is usually served with cold milk…soup in my opinion should NEVER be cold (I know SOME people have cold soup….eeeeeeeeeeeeewwww). Cereal should also be crunchy, I don’t think I’d like crunchy soup. I’m OK with chicken and sweetcorn or chicken noodle, but I really don’t like things in my soup. I know I’m weird, lol

What are some interesting ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”? What inspires you? What do you do for fun and profit?

What was your favourite toy growing up? It might sound weird, but I guess my imagination. I didn’t really have all that many toys as such. Sure I had a few dolls and my bike. We had neighbourhood kids and tennis rackets and cricket bats which we all played in the street. Or rode our bikes. But I remember the made up games or times I spent by myself. I guess I have always liked spending a bit of time on my own.

If you have a pet, and you could ask it three questions, what would you ask? Why???????? Why do you do that? Why do you pee on the floor (Chloe), why do you bark at random crap? Why do you need constant attention (Dexter) Why are you so jealous (again Dexter)?


What’s one simple thing society at large could do to improve our world? Stop being an arsehole…short and sweet.

My Dad died last month and we had a memorial service about a month ago. I collected a whole heap of photos and images of Dad and such, which I then had made into hardcover books. I sent one to my daughter as she could not come to Melbourne for the funeral. The couriers left it on her front porch and some arsehole stole it from her front porch. I mean it is of no use to anyone. It’s only sentimental value. Now I have to get it reprinted again. At least it wasn’t irreplaceable.

Still I suppose, apart from an annoyance, it’s not the end of the world. Apart from that one fly in the honey (or ointment if you prefer), it’s been a good week.
