Can you believe that it is week two of SYW 2023? Di, our hostess is back with a new set of questions.
1. How long did it take you to get back into your normal routine after the holidays?
(this does not have to be Christmas and New Year, but any holiday)
Not very long really. It was just the two of us and apart from taking the decorations down we didn’t have a lot to do after Christmas. We both went back to our volunteer jobs the week after Christmas too so it was business as usual apart from all the leftover Christmas food. We still have some Christmas pudding and Christmas cake but those keep well.
2. Which makes you feel more relaxed, putting your feet up in front of the fire with a good book or socialising with your friends?
Usually settling down with a good book, or the electronic equivalent. Socialising is more stressful than being alone. Not that I don’t enjoy it occasionally but I wouldn’t want to do it all the time.
3. What is your favourite hot drink?
Usually, I drink tea so I guess that’s my favourite but I do enjoy percolated coffee although I rarely drink it now. Hot chocolate is a treat too.
4. If you are feeling poorly, do you prefer to be pampered, or left alone?
I prefer to be left alone. As long as someone offers to make me a cup of tea and some toast once in while I don’t want to be bothered. If I had to go to hospital, I wouldn’t really want a parade of visitors when I’m feeling less than my best.
We had a lovely day out on Sunday. We went to a market where we found some nice things to buy. We went to Coles Beach to photograph the steam train from Don River Railway. The weather was beautiful, a warm, sunny day but not too hot to enjoy being outside. Then we went to a barbecue at Don that was put on for the volunteers. That’s where Naomi does her volunteering. I got to meet all her friends there which was very nice. I do like to socialise sometimes.
I was grateful for the opportunity to get out and take some pictures as it doesn’t happen too often these days.
