What did you learn the hard way?
I learned that family members are not always trustworthy and reliable. My sister and I saw our mum taken advantage of many times when we were growing up. We had our share of it too, some of it minor annoyances like being stood up or kept waiting but also having money or possessions wheedled out of us until we grew up enough to realise that we didn’t have to put up with this type of behaviour.
Which activities make you lose track of time?
Definitely the PC. I lose track of time when I’m blogging or playing a game. Time flies by when I am doing doll stuff too.
Why do we seem to think of others the most after they’re gone?
I guess that we often take people for granted as long as we know we can see them. It’s only when we can no longer talk to them we realise what we are missing.
Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
I am not sure that I understand this question. The truth about what? I don’t blindly accept everything I hear. If it is news it will depend on whether I think the source is reliable and I will research the subject further if it is something I care about. I suppose that could be called challenging the truth.
It’s always the small things. On Sunday we had a lovely sunny day and we went for a drive to Stanley stopping on the way at our favourite cafe where they have the best cakes and slices for only $2 each. I had a jacket potato with bacon, cheese, onion, coleslaw and sour cream, a jelly slice and a cappuccino all for about $10. You have got to love that.
If you don’t know what a jelly slice is here is a link.
We had a nice Sunday too, with a bright, warm, pleasant day by the river — shared with a surprisingly large number of people. Everyone seems very glad to get outside and away from computers and telephones and everything else.

Thanks, Vanda for Sharing Your World! That jelly slice looks delicious! Thanks for providing me an explanation, as I did not know what a ‘jelly slice’ was. Over here I think they call that a refrigerator jello cake or something. The photo of your day trip was beautiful. The sky is such a lovely shade of blue! It must be beautiful where you live! That ‘truth’ question is proving to be the poser of this round of Share Your World. So many perspectives on it have been shared. One blogger, who took the stance that truth is never questioned said “The sky is blue. Why would I question that? It’s a fact.” But all the opinions are valid. Have a lovely week!

I have to admit I cheated the blue sky into the picture as it was very dull that day . I love photo editing and although I usually want my pictures to be true to life I thought for SYW it could be “arty”. Tasmania is a beautiful place though, despite the weather. I can’t think of any part of it that is truly ugly. Except the horrible buildings sprouting in every city and good sized town :-(.
