Share your world – 26th January 2021

Today is actually Australia Day, the day we celebrate being Australian…or should be. But there is so much uproar about it being ‘invasion day’ that for most of us, it’s not worth the effort to celebrate, sad really. I’m not going to enter into the politics, but it’s all really quite pathetic. I spent the day doing housework, cleaning up the studio and doing some food shopping. I actually have a portrait session booked in for tomorrow, so that’s something to look forward to.

We started watching The Stand on Amazon Prime, kind of weird considering the world pandemic. You have to wonder how far from the truth this show is, thankfully our death count is not 99%. It’s does make one wonder…

Anyway, time for another round of Melanie’s SYW questions


Is it necessary to trust someone you like?  (friends, acquaintances or co-workers with whom you have no familial ties) I have people I know who I wouldn’t trust borrowing something expensive or breakable. It’s not that I don’t like them, it’s just I don’t trust them.

Do you hold grudges?   What do you do when someone really irritates you? Yes I do hold grudges, longer than is necessary in some cases, past the point I actually remember what I was angry at, at times. I am a ‘wee bit’ passive aggressive, so I usually ignore them and give them the cold shoulder…pretty pathetic right? Some of them probably don’t even know I was mad at them…or why lol

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve heard someone say? Fear is the dream killer, or Don’t sweat the little things.

Is crying a sign of weakness or strength in adults? Neither. I cry at ads on TV or movies, but don’t always cry at other times. I don’t think it is a weakness or a strength. Some people cry, some don’t, its just the way things are. I think some people are more emotional than others.

What small things were you grateful for this week? Summer and friends and photography. I had a friend stay for the weekend and we had so much fun. Chatting and shooting and wandering gardens and playing with our cameras, lunches and dinners out and movies on the couch. Lots of fun. I am grateful C19 is still in zero figures, that allows us some freedom, if not as much as we used to have, but it beats the lockdown we endured.

I hope you have a wonderful week, stay safe…
