Share Your World -31 October 2022

Here are my answers to this week’s Share Your World from Pensitivity101

If you were a ghost, who would you haunt, and why?

I don’t think I would haunt anybody but I would try to be a spirit guide to my grandchildren.

If broomsticks were legitimate modes of transport, would you like one?

Oh yes most definitely. How awesome it would be to fly around with a black cat for company. It would fulfill the inner witch inside me.

Would you cook in a cauldron?

It is actually a very popular way for South Africans to cook outdoors. The food cooked in a cauldron or potjie is called potjiekos. (Cauldron food) The ingredients will include stewing meat, potatoes and a variety of vegetables. I enjoy eating from a potjie if someone else has done the cooking. South Africans love entertaining around an open fire, and are particularly fond of braaing (barbecuing). Having a potjie is just another wonderful way of entertaining around an open fire.

Have you ever had your fortune told?

Yes. I had my fortune told at a fair when I was about twelve years old. The only thing I remember the gypsy-like woman telling me is that I would one day write a book. I had no plans to do so until something happened that I thought would make a good story so this prediction did in fact come true. ‘A Judge Decided’ was published at the end of 2020. It is available in bookshops in South Africa and will one day be available as an ebook but I haven’t got that far yet.

Today’s gratitude:
Who would you like to say thank you to?

Thank you to my family for being so totally awesome.

    How interesting that your fortune teller was correct about your book. I’m rather nervous of having mine told never tried it ever. I know my daughter loves to go.
