Share Your World – Week 52

This is my response to Cee’s Share Your World. Enjoy!

What is your favourite ice cream flavour?

Vanilla. It seems to have become a bad word for boringness, but I love it in both icecream and human form.

If you were to treat yourself to the “finer things” what would you treat yourself to?

I am not one for fancy stuff at all. I was reading one of the First Ladies Detective books and one of the characters was reprimanded for having enough money to employ help but not doing so even though he would have benefited. I think then that if I did have the money I would employ as a housekeeper or chauffeur.

Have you ever been drunk?

Yes. It’s not big or clever and can get you into trouble. Seeing people drunk is also boring. Anyone who gets drunk because they think that it is funny is stupid. Seriously, stop it now. I do not drink anymore as it led me not to be me, and that led to a reputation.

Complete this sentence: My favourite supposedly guilty pleasure is…

Cheesy music. A few days ago I was flicking through the CDs on sale at the charity shop I volunteer at. I found a Village People album and put it at the front where it can be seen. I fully expect it to have been snapped up by now. I admit though that I do actually feel guilt when I sing along to radio cheese though. If others cannot see the beauty then that is their own misfortune.

What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the coming week?

Sweet Seahorse

In the past few days I have made a fine collage of sealife out of chocolate wrappers which I am pretty proud of, and today I received a new power pack for an old laptop. Thankfully it works as my newer laptop was the victim of a temper tantrum. I am now Windows 7 and untouchscreenable, but trust me, these are good things.

The coming week brings us the new year. I see this as a time to recreate myself, and leave bad things behind. I am therefore looking forward to things like not recording more television than I can possibly watch, (I have an episode of Beck that I recorded in October 2015). I also look forward to growing my creative side and nurturing my little online shop. Hey, I might be able to afford a housekeeping chauffeur this time next year!

See you in 2017

Geometrics

I don’t know if my title has a meaning that bears no relation to this post, of if is a word that my mind has given birth to. Nonetheless, it is my entry for Cee’s Black and White Challenge.

The first, and I think best, object that came to mind is my small, carved, wooden box that I keep my earrings in. I tried to make the most of the carved lines by messing around with the camera settings and filters. These, I think are the best four that I took with my trusty Samsung S6.

It’s a Tiny, Tiny Word

This week’s Daily Press photo challenge is Tiny. I am one of the few people that I know who appreciates the smaller creatures of the planet, so I shall celebrate them here. Enjoy!… or not…

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge

Somewhere hidden along the Great Yarmouth seafront is a small, sunken oasis of calm called The Waterways. It is essentially a long pond used for model boat displayers and the local birdlife. It probably only takes 5 minutes to walk from end to end, but do you walk cross a bridge to walk down over the pond, or stick to the winding path along the edge? While pondering this question and this bridge, my eye was caught by the bright red sign on the other side. This is the resulting photograph presented as my entry for the Which Way challenge.

Please Don’t, It’s Forbidden

I was a bit stumped at first for Signs to show you for Cee’s Black and White challenge this week, but then I remembered these two that I had randomly put up around the flat…

Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge

This is one I took for the Things Made Out of Plastic challenge, but I forgot to post it 😦

This is the best smelling hand wash that I have ever experienced, and I will be inconsolable if I am not able to replace it once it has been used!

Sweet cat treat toy

The whole idea of the mouse is that it releases cat biscuits when it gets wobbled around by the cat. Needless to say it was never, ever the cat that wobbled it around!
