Can you bake a cake?
My baking skills are minimal. I can bake a cake with help. I’ve made some in the past. But I dont bake a lot. I keep saying I’m going to do it more often. My favourite cake to bake is apple crumble…yum.

Whats one thing that can instantly make your day better?
My dog. He always brings a smile to my face and brightens my world.
When you were a kid, did you eat the crusts on your sandwich or not?
I think I did, to be totally honest, I cant remember, thanks dissociation. I probably did, though.
Whats something your family would be surprised to learn about you?
I think they’d be surprised to learn that I am an overthinker, and I overanalyse everything. They dont really know that, since I dont let them into my mind most of the time. I think they’d also be surprised to know how much I worry about things.
And gratitude, something I am thankful for…
My cousin Nicole, for making me rethink my weight loss goals, and for making me feel awesome about myself, with her kind comment to me about how good I looked…thanks nicole!
😀

SYW for thanksgiving week!

Melanie C, of Sparks From a Combustible Mind, is the hostess of SYW-Share Your World. A Questionaire to start the week off with.

General questions this week. Its Thanksgiving and then that horrid Black Friday in the U.S.A. and so lots of folks will be ultra busy. I thought some general questions that are relatively easy to answer might be in order.

What did you have for dinner last night?

Chicken curry with rice!

Would you rather go out on a Saturday night or stay in?

Stay in! I do like a good night out but ideally I love cosy nights in on the weekend!

How are you, truthfully?

Very anxious. A little dissociated, but I am also very happy.

Whats the best topping/ice cream combination? If you dont eat ice cream, whats your favorite combination dessert? (Example: pie and ice cream or pie and whipped cream that sort of answer)

I love icecream with sprinkles on it! Or a hot fudge sundae! Mmmm!

An attitude of gratitude!

Share Your Gratitude with a thought (quote), a picture or a short paragraph. Most of us have lots to be grateful for, more than we might realize. Happy Thanksgiving and have a great week!

Tonight, I am grateful for a warm house, my dog, my weight loss this week, my friends and family, music, reading and books, a hot shower, and so so much more!

Share your world 21st October 2019

This challenge is hosted by melanie C of sparks from a combustible mind! Thank you Melanie for hosting it!
The questions are below, along with my answers!

Had any good conversations with yourself lately? Did you listen to yourself? And howd that work out for you?

Well, not really. I never listen to me. Lol. So it never works out in my favour!

What is gravity and how does it work?

Gravity is when I fall sideways and all of a sudden, I’m pulled the other way, mid fall!

What is more real Mind or Matter?

Well for me, mind is crucial! And they do say mind over matter, dont they, so your mind comes first, always!

Should a vegetarian (or vegan) eat animal crackers? Why not?

Well guess what? In ireland, they dont sell animal crackers! Can you believe that? Its a tragedy!

Lastly

Halloween Question:

(Gratitude questions will resume after Halloween is passed)

Name (describe) something you wouldnt want to run into in a dark and deserted wood or alley. Politicians are a given, so skip those please. Thanks!

Anything spooky really, I’m a chicken! I get freaked out by anything that is remotely scary!

Thanks to melanie from sparks from a combustible mind, for the questions for share your world this week!

The questions…

Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat) a good thing, a bad thing or a mixture of both?

A mixture of both! I am on facebook, and twitter, although I use facebook more. I like it, if you stay away from all the drama it is quite a good place, you can find out a lot of information on there.

Are you camera shy or do you pose for the camera with confidence?

I’m not camera shy at all. People say I take nice photos. I like having my photo taken.

Is there anything youve kept from younger years for sentimental reasons alone?

Not really. I cant think of anything off the top of my head. Oh there is one thing. I kept the letters my gramma wrote to me when I was a child, in bording school, she’d write to me each week, I will always treasure those letters.

Do you like to decorate for different holidays?

Yes. Well for halloween, and christmas. I like the atmosphere when the decorations are up. It feels so nice.

GRATITUDE

Do you feel youre a strong person character-wise?

Yes. People say I am very determined, and I guess I am. I dont let things hold me back. Especially my blindness. I can also be stubborn, or so I am told, lol.

5. There are sometimes two sets of questions…one with images and one without (same questions). This is for ease of copy and pasting.

QUESTIONS:
What do fish do all day? What thoughts do you think they have? (Credit to the awesome Teresa and her Fibbin’ Fridays for this one)
They swim, of course, and try to remember their swimming adventures, I think they think about how not to get eaten or caught.
What celebrity would you have as a SPOUSE, if you HAD to choose?
Hmmm. Well I dont follow a lot of celebs. But if I had to chose I think I’d choose Beyonce.
What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever broken?
I dont think I’ve broken anything really expensive, thankfully. I am not clumsy for the most part, and I think probably its only been cups, glasses etc that I have broken over the years.
When was the last time you slept more than 9 hours in a stretch? Why?
Probably a few weeks ago. I dont sleep 9 hours a lot. Maybe once in a while if I am extremely exhausted, but not a lot. I usually only sleep 4 or 5 hours at a time.
Share something you were really grateful for this year (so far):
I am grateful for my therapist. Without her I dont know what I’d do or where I’d be. I get so much out of therapy, so much healing has taken place in our inside world this past year.

Share your world 06-05-2019

This week I am participating in Melanie’s share your world!

QUESTIONS:

  1. Do you believe in soul mates? If so, do you think there is only one person meant to share that bond with you, out there in the world? I do believe in soul mates. I am not sure about only one person though. I guess on thinking some more, I do believe that that is true.(credit to Cyranny of Cyrannys Cove)
  2. Ice cream cone, shake or other ice cream concoction? An icecream cone! There’s nothing better on a warm summers day! I love to lick mine from the bottom up! Yum!
  3. What would be the hat to end all hats? What could you wear on your head that would make people stop what they are doing and stare in awe and amazement? I dont like hats, I dont even know a lot about hats, or different kinds of hats. The only hats I’ve ever worn are a sun hat, or a ball cap, or a winter hat.
  4. What would be the worst buy one get one free sale of all time? That to me would have to be…something like, tissue, or toothpaste, they’re necessities, but so boring.

Bonus Question. Please share a moment of gratitude that you experienced during the past week.

When my mom took me to the doctor when I fell ill. She didnt have to do that but she chose to take time out of her day to bring me, I was so grateful to her for that.
