How can someone win a gold star (i.e. win your approval and/or admiration) with you?
I guess by being a kind and thoughtful person who tries to help others.
If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
Probably more of what I do for fun now. More reading, more writing, more wasting time on the internet.
Do you have a favorite type of exercise?
I like walking, preferably with a dog or a camera but don’t call it exercise. That’s not why I do it.
Do you sleep with a top sheet? Why or why not?
Funnily enough Naomi and I were talking about this just this morning. We both prefer a top sheet because that is what we were brought up to use. We had sheets and blankets on our beds until doonas became popular so the top sheet was needed. I know a lot of people think that they are a nuisance and complain that they get tangled in them but to me it seems a lot easier to wash a sheet than to wash a doona. Think of all the sweat, dead skin etc that comes off us in bed. It just seems a bit unhygenic not to use one to me. It is also useful if you have a doona thieving bed companion as you can tuck it in and prevent it from being dragged off you.
I have two gratitude stories this week. One is from last week when I went to get my hair cut in Burnie. I randomly picked a hairdresser and was lucky enough to have delightful conversation about cats with the hairdresser. She told me how she had recently rescued a kitten from someone who had got it for their child (a 3 year old) but then didn’t want it. This woman just let the kitten go hoping it would run away. I really liked how angry this young hairdresser was about that.
My second gratitude post is more mundane, Naomi and I went down to Burnie today to look around the shops. We ended up buying a few things in K Mart for some really good prices. Neither of us had been in K Mart for ages and we were surprised and pleased that we found so many things we liked in there. In fact we’re planning a trip back next week to get a few things for the house and ourselves. First time we’ve enjoyed shopping in ages.
We also had another very enjoyable visit to Penguin Market and a walk with Toby and Teddy who came with us.
