My favourite things

I was inspired to write this post after seeing and reading Hilary’s post, over at “Sereneluna.” You can find Hilary’s favourite things here.

Here are my favourite things, which I now share here. I shared this sometime back, in a comment on Hilary’s post, but I now wanted to share it here.

My favourite things:

I have one mug that is large and chunky which I bought from Sealife, some years ago. I like this because it keeps my tea hot for longer and probably holds nearly double the amount of tea to a standard mug. So less trips to the kettle, when I use it. Lol.

I like adult colouring books and have a few colouring books. I find them relaxing. I like the idea of colouring in  postcards, stickers and cards to send to friends, that I read about on Hilary’s post. So I shall have to look into that one.

I like my phone which is my communication to my family, friends and the world. This is because of me being deaf and so I can text, email, or blog from my phone.
Occasionally, I will use my computer for accessing the internet, which I tether my phone to it for internet, when needing a bigger screen. So I have to add my computer to my favourite list too. I also use my computer to watch DVD’s.

Walking is another favourite and lifesaver of mine. My walking has increased this year than any other year. It’s my escape from stresses in life. I love observing wildlife, on my passing through parks, or nature reserves.

Scented candles, or oil, as well as scented lotions is on my favourite list.

If I had my cat, Miley, she would be on the list of favourites too. But lets not forget my hamster I bought in September, who I named Daisy. I enjoy watching her.

What are your favourite things?

Fibbing Friday- 13th September

I have decided to join in with Fibbing Friday today.
To see how to join in and what it is about, do visit Pensitivity101.

1. If flower seeds give us flowers and tomato seeds give us tomatoes, what does bird seed give us?

My answer: Lots of shit.

2. How do you make a cat flap?

My answer: (I hope you have seen the Felix advert one time.) Get your cat a pack of its favourite Felix treats, stick the cat outside and close the door, while you remain on the inside. Shake the Felix treats and your cat should come charging through the door, creating a hole for your cat flap.
Ask for a refund, if it doesn’t happen. Lol.

3. Why is Friday 13th considered unlucky?

My answer: It was a job that the witches created, passing on their superstitions. They never realised how popular it would become though.

My answer: It has a lot to say.

10. Why do we say swinging the lead?

My answer: So the lead isn’t leading anymore.

Fibbing Friday – 31st May prompt

I have been watching Beckie, over at Beckie’s Mental Mess participate in Fibbing Friday. You can see Beckie’s answers to yesterday’s Fibbing Friday here.
I have participated a couple of times and left my answers over on Beckie’s blog posts, but thought I would start doing it here, when I join in.

The Fibbing Friday prompts are created by Teresa, over at The Haunted Wordsmith.

Yesterday’s prompt questions can be found here at this post, over at The Haunted Wordsmith. But here are the questions and my answers below to this fun game.

I have started following The Haunted Wordsmith, to see future prompts that I hope to join in with.

What would a Friday be without a chance to do a little fibbing? Have fun and come up with the best whoppers you can to these questions:

  1. What did the fan say? I can’t think of anything better than Beckie’s answer. 😊
  2. What really kicks off summer? I can only think of Bryan Adams song, ‘Back in the summer of 69.’ Now what did happen? 🤔
  3. Who rules the world? I definitely agree with Beckie. It’s certainly not Donald Trump.

    Or, pinch their nose and see what happens. 😁
  5. Who/what was your last unexpected house guest? A wasp.
  6. How does a blanket keelp warm? It’s not the blanket keeping you warm. You have been deceived all these years. Instead, it’s you that’s keeping the blanket warm.
