What’s your go-to for unwinding after a stressful event or day? Can be someone or something – music, pets, family or whatever you choose.
If I am feeling really stressed I prefer to be alone with just Cindy and Polly for company. I may turn my mobile phone off and let any calls on the landline go to message bank.
- If I get home after a tiring or stressful day I like to make a hot drink and veg watching something that doesn’t require me to think too much or get too emotionally involved in it.
- I like to sit in my garden on a nice day and listen to the birds.
- I used to like to soak in the bath but now getting out of it makes that a bit stressful so I don’t do it so much.
- When David was in hospital I used to put the radio on to a classical music station and leave it on all night. I found it relaxing and it helped me go to sleep as long as there was no opera singing. I still listen to that station when I wake up every morning.
The plane you’re flying in is going to crash, no survivors. If you had one song you could listen to before it happens, what would it be? (credit toNewEpicAuthor for this one). Please share the link to the song if you can.
I can’t answer this. If I knew I was about to die I would not be thinking about what I’d like to listen to. I’d be too distracted.
What is one thing you’re really, really good at and not ashamed to admit it? I worded that deliberately because aren’t we taught to be humble and not pushy about our achievements? Celebrate your ability!
I am moderately good at a few things but I wouldn’t say I was really, really good at any. Maybe spelling. I am good at spelling.
Would you rather lose all of your money and valuables or all of the pictures you have ever taken?
As much as I would hate to lose my photos I would hate to lose my money and valuables more. My valuables are not things that are worth a lot except perhaps to me. I could include my pets although I think of them more as family, certainly favourite dolls and special items that mean something to me.
On a practical note if I didn’t have any money I would not have anything to live on except the measly allowance the government provides and I might have to give up my home. That is something I really don’t want to lose.
What were you grateful for or something that made you smile during the past month?
A week or so ago I decided to follow a tip I’d read on the internet on how to clean the glass on the inside of the oven door. I dismantled the door and got the solitary water streak that had been annoying me off but then could not work out how to put it back together. I persevered and after a weekend of no oven I worked out how to do it and put it back in place. I am grateful that I was able to do that by myself as the friend I asked to have a look at it for me was as confused by it as I was. Hmm maybe I am really, really good at fixing oven doors.
