Share Your World: A Question Answered

041514 sywbannerLast week a number of bloggers read my Share Your World post so I thought I would participate again. One of the questions that Cee asked last week was: Did you have a stuffed animal when you were a kid, if so what kind? Thinking back on my childhood, there was no stuffed animal that came to mind. I did not think I walked around with a favourite – but I could be wrong. It was in my mind to check with my mom, but I knew that I may forget to ask her. My mom reads my blog to keep up to date with what I am doing and she kindly answered my question for me on my Facebook page:

I have always been a reader – and it seems like I was one even before I can remember 🙂

Now for the questions that Cee has asked this week:

How do you like your eggs?

I enjoy eating eggs and how I eat them depends on my mood. I enjoy a well-cooked fried egg (runny yolk, but everything else must be cooked), soft scrambled eggs, and hard boiled egg on freshly made toast. Yum! I have eaten poached egg once or twice and have enjoyed the experience. I haven’t tried making it though. Omelettes are a perfect meal for lunch or supper. In the centre I put cheeses and finely chopped onion and tomatoes. Delicious!

Have you ever met anyone famous?

It depends on what your definition of ‘met’ is. I have shaken the hand and greeted some well-known people, for example: Cynthia Ball, a well-known South African painter of watercolour (I have one of her paintings hanging on my wall); and Marion Keyes at her book signing for The Break (of course I have a signed copy of the book).

What was the first thing you bought with your own money?

When I was a teenager, I loved buying records (yes, LPs) of my favourite musicians with my pocket money and birthday money. I remember it used to annoy my mom, but I loved listening to music on my record player. And what else would I spend my money on? Books? I am not too sure spending money on my library would have been any better. 🙂

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  

This past weekend was a long weekend. Monday was a day which the government created to give families a chance to spend time together during the never-ending cold of winter. I appreciated this weekend as it gave my family an opportunity to spend more time together. We ate a meal together on Saturday to celebrate Chinese New Year; and then we went out for a meal on Sunday to celebrate our son’s birthday at a restaurant my husband and I had not yet been to. The food was delicious, and the atmosphere vibrant.

What would you answer to any of these questions?

  1. I didn’t have a stuffed animal but I read books as long as I can remember.
    I like eggs cooked just about any way, but my favorite is a hard-boiled egg that is still warm.
    Yes, I met General Paul Tibbets, who piloted the Enola Gay when it dropped Little Boy on Hiroshima. I have also met some pretty well-known authors.
    The first thing I bought with my own money was a red and white checked skirt when I was in high school.
    I was with my granddaughters nearly every day and any day with them is like a huge ray of sunshine.

    1. The conversation with General Paul Tibet’s must have been very interesting Michelle.
      Granddaughters would definitely bring a ray of sunshine into anyone’s life. I am sure you had some memory making moments.
      Sounds like you were a bookworm from a young age just like me. 🙂

  2. Your post made me think Colline, I don’t recall any stuffed toys back in my childhood days, but I have since received a couple in my adult years, I now have a lovely stuffed Emu sitting on my desk, a gift I believe due to my internet pseudonym of Emu, I do recall a life sized Panda Bear won in a raffle that my daughter inherited and is still being used with her Children.
