Share Your World – December 18, 2017

If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?

It would definitely be for the yard work! The most I have ever done is water the garden, or replace water when I get flowers. I am really not a “green thumb” type person. Funny story, I was asking questions about herbs for someone else on Facebook. That year for Christmas everyone gave me presents that had to do with gardening, because they thought I had taken it up. I guess they didn’t believe me this time when I said “Asking for a friend”lol

If you were to move and your home came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain?

I am currently moving between my mums house and my partners.

My mums shower…Everyone loves our shower, I miss my showers when I stay over at my partners.

My Mums couch, it’s just such a comfy place to sleep on! We have all fallen asleep and slept on it many a night.

My own bed, I love the bed cover, the pillow covers and I just fall asleep so easily…It’s all about the sleeping for me!lol

What calms you down?

I find that it depends on the situation what helps me to feel more calm. At the moment I have been listening to Celtic Music. I’ve been sitting down at the man-made wetlands and just putting my iPod and listening to Celtic music. I swear I must have been there in a past life or something. Mainly at the moment I’ve been listening to “Celtic Woman”. Especially this song! Listen to it full volume!

How do you like to spend a rainy day?

I love to curl with a cup of tea or coffee, depending on my mood. You will also probably find me playing one of my favourite computer games, either, Sims 4 or Guild Wars 2. Lately I have started roller-coaster tycoon lately.  I am also watching the Safari Live that I am obsessed with. You might also find me though cleaning the house. I find that if it’s a cold rainy day it helps me keep warm and keeps the heater off for a while (helps with the bills as well) but it also makes me feel like I’ve actually done something that day.

List at least five favorite treats. (They do not have to be sugary).

  • I love these things called “Soy Crisps” except if I have too many, I will throw up though.
  • There’s a yummy summer treat that I love making called “Rainbow ‘Broken Glass’ Jelly“. Link is too a YouTube video recipe. It’s really simply and you can use whatever colours you makes. I usually make them around the Summer/Christmas holidays.
  • I loooooooooove chocolate custard and or mousse.
  • Chocolate Chip cookies…Especially Double Chocolate Chips. I used to get just them at Subway, no sandwiches, and now I’ve discovered a recipe that I make myself =D
  • I enjoy chewing on healthy fruits as well, sometimes I feel the need for them. My favourite fruits to chew on are granny smith apples (the green ones) and I love to eat banana’s.

Where’s your favorite place to take out-of-town guests?

We usually will take them for a walk around the city, which depends on the weather. A great place we like to take is this little German town called Hahndorf, it’s so quaint but is a great place for a holiday day out. it honestly depends on what the weather is like, most people come and visit around Summer/Holiday times. We have a couple of gorgeous of beach towns around as well.

You are trapped in an elevator, who would you want to be trapped with?

Definitely my partner, mainly because he’s the only one I could trust not to talk about my anxiety while we’re trapped in the elevator,lol

A good cleanout

So…I’ve been living in the house I am living in now for about 10 years so and the house before this one was larger. Meaning that we now have a LOT of boxes that have not been opened for a long time.

One of mine and my Mother’s goals this year is too clear out these boxes and see what we can get rid of. Now my Mum is always saying that they’re just my boxes and so I offered to start going through and after pulling out 4…That’s 4…of her boxes (I don’t know why she keeps telling everyone they are mine, when they are in her cardboard to even begin with) I finally managed to find my one…There’s possibly another one in there, but they are pretty much all hers.

Anyways, getting past that annoyance…It wasn’t easy to get to them either can I just tell you, because she’s put them all in her walk-in wardrobe, which has stuff on top of other stuff.

The first box that I pulled was full…just of full…of these books that I used to read all the time when I was teenager and some of my favourites that I haven’t read in year. The box also included a very random VHS tape of The Lord of the Rings. I took a few photos, just to show the collection…Oh, the memories they bring back…Especially the classic Judy Blume 3 in 1 books.

Cleaning out my Closet

Usually I would be posting about Bookmark Chronicles “This or That – Category” challenge on a Wednesday evening, but Bookmark Chronicles (please check them out) is taking a week off to concentrate to find their dream life and make it happen! We, at the Library, wish them all the luck in the world!

Instead of writing a in-depth, get to know me type of Blog. I am taking the day to clean today. When I say clean, I mean clean…I have always found cleaning to be therapeutic. So not only am I cleaning the house and my room today, but I am cleaning out my laptop. Getting rid of old files, games and photos I don’t need or want any-more.

So, what do you do you readers, when you REALLY clean?

My organised mess…

Sweeping Motions: Daily Post

What’s messier right now — your bedroom or you computer’s desktop (or your favorite device’s home screen)? Tell us how and why it got to that state.

Right this moment, they are probably just as messy as each other. Over the last year or so I have been getting rid of my “stuff”, giving it to charity, just getting rid of it all. Deleting old files, games I never play any-more. I could definitely say that both my rooms and my home screen are a bit of an “organised mess” at the moment. By that I mean, I see the clean and I know where everything is, but if someone else were to walk into my room, or see my home screen…They’d probably be wondering “What?”lol. Especially since I’ve just recently had my birthday, all the stuff I had gotten rid of, has now been replaced by all the new stuff I got for my birthday.

Cleaning Spritz!

I am a weird human being, I actually enjoy cleaning…Okay, I enjoy cleaning up my stuff and the mess I made. When I go to somebody else’s house though I will help clean up, but I don’t enjoy it…Cleaning up my own room, my own house, my partners house…I really get a kick out of it.

We are heading into Winter, here Down Under. So not only is cleaning kind of a meditation for me, but it’s a good work out as well and keeps me nice and warm. I have also been trying to get rid of things and stuff, it’s been going on for about two years now and I am still going. Sure, it’s like one bag every three months or so, but I have a lot of stuff!

So readers, do you enjoy cleaning, what is your advice for Winter cleaning?

Share Your World – 2016 Week 15

Name one thing not many people know about you.

I never try to purposely hide any part of myself from people. I try to be as open as I can be. One thing that not many people know about myself, my father is an alcoholic, some of my closest friends don’t even know. It’s not something I am necessarily ‘ashamed’ of but trying to protect myself and all the “sympathetic” looks and the whole people thinking I might have a problem.

If a distant uncle dies and you were always his favorite and leaves you $50,000 (any currency) in his will, what would you do?

I would probably go on a nice holiday somewhere and give a couple of thousand to my mum, dad, brother and Gran. $50,000 wouldn’t really go very far these days…Unfortunately.

Where do you hide junk when people come over?

People hide their junk?hehe…If I hide something, I have some large cupboards that I usually stuff everything in.

Complete this sentence:  I want to learn more about …

I would love to learn more about Ancient cultures. I learnt about them in high school but I would love to visit and travel and see them in all of their glory.

If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?

Yard Work! Definitely yard work! The others I kind of enjoy cooking and cleaning and they are almost therapeutic for me, but I loathe yard work. It’s just something that I have never gotten into. My mum has been overseas for the last couple of weeks and I’ve had to upkeep her flowers and they are still alive, but I’ve so not enjoyed it at all!

What makes you laugh the most?

I’d have to say that it’s a combination of my puppy, my partner and my Mum. They just know me really well. My Dog is great because she’s just a silly fluffy bundle of awesome. Sometimes when I get to wake up with her, she’s so happy to wake up to in the morning. She’s all bright and sparkly and wiggles with her tail wagging a lot, hehe

What was your favorite food when you were a child?

Oh wow! This was definitely a strain for my brain. The first thing that popped into my head though, was I used to LOVE this ‘lunch meat’ called Fritz. It’s made from the Devon sausage and they are usually cut up into slices (to put on sandwiches).

List at least five favorite flowers or plants.

  1. I love any kind of Blossom type trees, they are just gorgeous. Especially when they are in full bloom.
  2. Love Lilies, I know that they are associated with Death and so forth. They are utterly beautiful though, all of them.
  3. I love sunflowers, they are so bright, beautiful and happy.
  4. Roses, it might be a cliché, but they are a cliché for a reason!
  5. There is nothing like a great big Oak tree. They are so magnificent and just so magical in the right setting.

Share Your World – 2016 Week 8

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?

I hate cleaning the toilet! It doesn’t even matter if the toilet actually looks clean, I just hate cleaning it. I feel like I’m going to throw up into, even when it’s clean.

What was the last URL that you bookmarked?

African Safari Camera … In all 100% seriousness, I only added this one a few days ago. Before this one it had been a long while.

Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?

My head … I kind of lost my job this week, I’m only a causal so they can let me go at any-time, but I was expecting it be extended…And now I’m just lost as to what to do.

Would you rather have a two-bedroom apartment in a big city of your choosing or a mansion in the country side in the state or country where you currently live?

Oh gee! I have no idea, they both sound really good! Can I have both? Probably a two-bedroom apartment, only because in all honesty, I think that it might be more practical for me.
