Share your world – 17th Feb 2022

It’s been an emotional roller coaster of a week, yet again. Is this what’s in store for me in 2022? Yikes! I hope not. Having a week full of ‘Mother’ dramas. I know I don’t go into things in a lot of details on that front – it’s complicated.

This week’s SYW questions


Which traditional Valentineโ€™s Day gift would you rather receive: chocolates, flowers, or a card with a personal message? Not a big one for Valentine’s day, myself. Not really a hopeless romantic. However, if anybody is to give me anything it would be flowers (I can photograph) or chocolate (I can eat – obviously). My Hubby had the day off from work (to see a specialist) so we went out for lunch, which was nice.

Do you like romantic movies? I like rom-coms, and some lovey-dovey movies. It really depends. I liked Ghost and Titanic and they are love movies. Under a Tuscan Sun and so many others. So I guess the answer is yes…but there are some I really didn’t enjoy. Love Actually comes to mind, I watched it, it was OK, but not brilliant.

Is Valentineโ€™s Day only about romantic love? Or is it a good occasion to celebrate friendship as well? I think Valentine’s day is too commercial. I love who I love every day, family, friends etc.

How do you deal with unwanted romantic attention? Apart from unwanted business attention (Spam and such) I have not really had unwanted romantic attention as such. Well, at least not for a very long time. lol

Dexter will be your Valentine


Share one or two of your favourite memories of your special loved one if youโ€™d like. So many memories to share, old and new. I think that is one of the lovely things as we get older, the many memories we collect along the way. Just at the moment, I am so grateful for my support team in this current trying time, my Hubby and Daughters, my Aunt, several very good friends who know our history. I am also thankful to the Hospital staff, who actually listened to me for once. Having other people realise it’s not me that’s sick (finally), is such a relief.

Lots happening, shoots, classes, workshops, presentations and podcasts! Yes, I recorded my first podcast the other day. So that was interesting. I was just a guest speaker, but it makes me wonder if it’s something I should do?

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great week…
