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)
Swim, obviously, and if fish think I guess they think about what they are going to eat or what might eat them.
What celebrity would you have as a SPOUSE, if you HAD to choose?
Nope, never given it a thought. I don’t see celebrities lining up to ask for my hand so I think the likelihood of having to choose is zero. I was quite happy with the husband I had anyway; don’t ever want another.
What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever broken?
Well, two things come to mind. Several years ago I accidentally broke a pane of glass in our front door. It used to stick in damp weather and I gave it a harder than usual tug and a pane of frosted glass just shattered. I forget how much new frosted glass would have cost but too much for us, we had it replaced with plain glass.
The other thing was my Nikon Coolpix L120 camera which got broken in Sydney after our first cruise when I dropped it while trying to carry my luggage to my room. I think the camera was between $200-300 new but worse than that was that David had given it to me one Christmas, quite unexpectedly, because I hadn’t said I needed a new camera. I was so sorry to lose it because it happened only a few months after he died. I still miss it sometimes.
When was the last time you slept more than 9 hours in a stretch? Why?
I can’t remember. I practically never sleep that long. Usually, I wake up automatically after six hours or so although I may drop off again especially if I know I don’t need to go anywhere or do anything in particular that day. Sometimes I might wake up because I have to go to the bathroom and sometimes Cindy wakes me to let her out. She’s a good dog; she doesn’t often wake me up in the middle of the night but she’s getting older too. I generally sleep about 6-7 hours no matter what time I go to bed whether I set the alarm or not.
An Attitude of Gratitude!
Share something you were really grateful for this year (so far):
With nearly half a year gone I have to say that the thing I have been most grateful for this year is that my town was saved from the bushfires, my house did not burn and I had friends who were willing to take me and my pets in when things looked the worst.
