Share your world – 5th Jan 2021

A whole new fresh shiny year, I wonder what we have in store for us? 12 Month ago, we could never have envisioned the 2020 we had in store for us. So another year and another round of questions from Melanie SYW. Last year I think I posted for almost every week for SYW (I may have missed one or two?), let’s see if I can keep it up…


What’s a relationship deal breaker for you? I don’t like liars and cheaters (who does), but I really hate it when a friendship is all one sided. I find if I am the one ringing, emailing, texting, dropping in and such and it is never returned, drives me crazy. Look I have friends I don’t talk to for ages and then one of us calls and we just simply pickup where we left off like always…and that is fine, life gets busy. But if I never hear from someone or see them because I stopped putting in ALL the effort, then I guess they were never really my friend, I was just their friend. I let them go.

Do you believe in extra-terrestrials? Just because I haven’t met any, doesn’t mean they don’t exist. But I admit, we are pretty gullible to believe we are the only intelligent life in the galaxy, universe…whatever. But WHERE are they? Or are they just bypassing us as we are not really fit to meet other species? I mean seriously can you blame them? Look what’ve done to our own planet, no-one would want us to come and trash theirs!

In the morning, do you hit the snooze button on your alarm (sometimes repeatedly) or do you leap out of bed, ready to face the day? Have you met me? leap out of bed ready to face the day? NOPE, never going to happen. Even if I am leaving on a holiday I still wake up grumpy and in need of a coffee! I will frequently hit snooze and maybe more than once. Usually it’s the animals that wake me and drag me out of bed before the alarm!

If you came back in the next life as an animal, which animal would you choose to be?  (and even if you don’t believe in that, let’s suspend belief for a moment just to have a little fun) Well I guess, to come back as a dog, but not just any dog, one of my dogs lol. If I could have an owner just like me, oh that would be heaven. My dogs lack for nothing. A warm cosy bed (mine), lots of cuddles and attention (I work from home and they have beds in my office and studio), and lots of treats. Mmm would I like their treats because I am a dog? They love them, but as a human I prefer my treats lol.


What do you plan to work on this year to make it better than last year  (personal goals, physically or mentally, or all three)? Well I would like to improve my fitness, but so far have done little lol. I would love to be able to travel again.

I would like to build on my supporter base and teach further afield. Run workshops interstate and run online classes in more countries, that would be cool. I would also like to work with more designers.

So whatever 2021 holds I hope it is full of fun, laughter, love, hope, light, and creativity…
