A pessimistic, chocolate-loving, sun-worshipper on a yacht….


The questions for Cee’s Share Your World were quite tricky this week!   Especially the one about chocolate!    Take a look and see if you agree…..

Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. 

Generally pessimistic.  Incredulous. Frustrated.  Insightful.  Suspicious. Flexible.

Where do you like to vacation?

As we live on a boat for six months of the year and float around the Greek Islands, that is regarded by some people as a very extended holiday.   In some ways, it is like a holiday, being in a lovely location, continual sunshine, doing as we please.   But if you go on a proper holiday, you don’t have to carry heavy pots of water to fill up the water tanks every few days, or wrestle with the water hose, you don’t break your nails and get your hands filthy hauling ropes and doing anchoring work, you don’t have to find a harbour where fuel can be delivered to the boat, you don’t have to search for a laundrette to wash towels or bedding, or wash your knickers in a bucket….


I’ve done a lot of travelling all my life.  I like places that are hot and sunny, off the beaten track, but with some comforts.  A beach in Barbados sounds good to me…..


Candy factories (sweets or treats including chocolate) of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?

Well, clearly they would have to make only chocolate.  A quality milk chocolate, maybe  covering some fudge.  Or salted caramel.    At the moment, my most favourite thing is a Galaxy salted caramel bar, which incorporates all of these delicious things….


Complete this sentence: Something that anyone can do that will guarantee my smile is…

Offer me a comfy chair in front of a log fire, my favourite TV show, and a tray of Galaxy chocolate…..

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

I am so grateful to my lovely husband for all the work he is doing on my house.  He has done electrical work, bricklaying, painting, plumbing, decorating, and so much more.  The house is on the market now, and next week I’m looking forward to lots of potential buyers arriving to view the house and make an offer!
