Share Your World – 8 March 2021

Here are my answers to this week’s questions from Sparks

If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be for?  (Covid considerations are suspended for this question)

It would probably be for someone in my family reaching a milestone – like 21, 60, 70 100 etc. I don’t like huge parties where you just don’t get to interact with everyone but sometimes it is necessary. I prefer to celebrate with a Champagne Breakfast and I would serve a variety of fruits, Greek yogurt, muesli, croissants, rolls, small pastries, smoked salmon, ham and other cold cuts, pates, cream cheese and savoury quiches. There would be fresh orange juice and chilled champagne. And everybody would help themselves. There would be both indoor and outdoor seating and everyone would be free to mingle and chat.

Is a picture worth a thousand words? Elaborate.

Sometimes, yes. A stunning sunset/sunrise, a silhouetted giraffe on the horizon, lions having a drink at the waterhole in the early morning light – priceless. You can describe these things in words but the picture tells it far more eloquently.

Uh Oh!

Where IS Waldo?   (Waldo, for those unfamiliar with him, is a cartoon character featured in many “find Waldo” images and puzzles)      <——  WALDO

Waldo would be hiding behind a tree at a Kruger National Park picnic site, binoculars glued to his eyes as he searches for a bearded woodpecker.

What’s the best part of waking up?

Finding that I’m still alive!

No seriously – it’s the coffee.

Would you rather be covered in fur or covered in scales?   (Wee disclaimer.  I’m certainly not advocating the slaughter of creatures and the use of their skins for clothing or accessories.  No!  This question is a ‘grow your own’ type question…if you had an option of your own skin being made of fur OR scales, which would you choose?)

Fur would be lovely. It would be warm in winter and cool in summer after I moult the winter layer. And imagine the lovely feeling of being stroked – I’d purr like a cat!

GRATITUDE SECTION (Always optional) 

Feel free to share your gratitude for our world!


I am grateful for my friend Kim who came to stay bringing her daughter and friend along. We have had such lovely adventures with them which has cheered us up after keeping things low key during Level Three Lockdown. (We’re now on Level One.)

The Earl and Me with Kim, Siobhan and Kimmie

Your get-together must have been very uplifting and you all look so relaxed and happy! I’d give an RSVP for that champagne breakfast too! It sounds lovely! Have a pleasant week!!
