Here are my answers to this week’s Share Your World from Sparks
Do you enjoy skiing or ice skating or if it’s warm where you are, hiking or enjoying outdoor sports?
It is warm where I am but I have done some ice-skating and skiing. As a child I had a pair of rollerskates and I loved roller skating. Then an ice-rink was created a little way from where I lived. You could hire a pair of skates and it was really exciting to glide across the ice. I did it a few time with my own children too. I was forty years old when I went to Verbier in Switzerland and skiied for the first and last time in my life. It was awesome!
In my warm climate, I enjoy nature walks, beach walks and swimming in the sea.
Do you give to charities or homeless that you might encounter, during this time of year, more than you do otherwise?
We tend to give throughout the year and help out where we see there is a need.
What is the most enjoyable activity you engage in during December? Is it a tradition for you and your family?
There is nothing special that we engage in but it is a time where we try to have experiences with our children and grandchildren rather than indulging in expensive gifts. We might go to a live show or take them on special outings, sometimes even a weekend away.
What changes will C-19 bring to your festive celebrations this year?
Our extended family of ten will be celebrating together as usual this year. Our children are concerned that Plettenberg Bay is a COVID hotspot and they have warned us that our movements will be limited! So it looks like we will have lots of bonding time together on the farm, far from the crowds in town.
GRATITUDE SECTION (Optional of course):
Please share a good will wish for the world!
May the world be filled with joy, laughter and love during this holiday season. And may the new year bring an end to C-19!
