Here are my answers to this week’s SYW hosted by pensitivity101 for the time being.
1. Do you prefer to live in a single-story property like a bungalow, a high-rise apartment, or a house?
I lived in a double story in my teens and it was fine. I have lived in a flat that had stairs and no lift and that was fine too. Most other places have been single-story houses and they were perfect. We have downsized since retiring and we have a perfect little home in a quiet street with a sheltered, enclosed garden. It used to be our holiday home so holds many very happy memories. It looks very different now as we have done many alterations so that it now serves our needs perfectly. Our other home is, of course, our caravan. Who can ask for anything more?
2. If you won a large amount of money on the lottery, would you want publicity or keep things quiet and low key?
I would keep it low-key and secretly help people who I know could use some extra cash.
3. How do you like your eggs? (No, this is not a trick question)
I enjoy eggs and eat them every day. My choice depends on where I am and how I feel at the time. At home, they would be boiled, scrambled, or fried. Sometimes an omelet is the order of the day. Eggs Benedict is my favourite. Today I enjoyed the best I’ve had in a long time at Table Cafe, Lifestyle Centre, Bredasdorp – Western Cape, South Africa. I asked them to leave off the English muffin and to serve the eggs on top of the mushrooms. What a treat!
4. If cars were no longer available, what would be your choice of transport?
A broomstick would be good! But seriously – I wouldn’t mind riding a bike. I don’t ride now because the cars scare me! So perhaps with no cars about it would be more fun. A horse-drawn carriage would also be fine but where would I keep the horse? If cars were gone would we still have buses and trains or would the stagecoach return?
I am grateful for fabulous friends. It was wonderful having our friends Tony and Sharon visit us for a couple of days. We have been friends since we were young adults. The weather was chilly but the company warm, the coversation stimulating and the outings fun!
