- Answer four questions each week.
- Bonus Question is always the same “What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?” Because we all need to be reminded that there are many things in our lives to be grateful about.
It’s a great way to join with other bloggers to share our worlds. The idea is to answer without overthinking the questions and have some FUN. Feel free to join in by copying the questions, writing your answers in a new post and linking back to Cee’s original post. I always have fun when I write these posts.
This week’s questions are:
Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?
My first name is Deborah, Debbie to my friends and Debs (to my daughters and special friends and that includes you!). I have enjoyed reading posts about how people got their names and have been known to write a few of my own 🙂 My father named me after Debbie Reynolds and I wrote a lovely post here which you might find interesting. What’s in a name. My daughter then requested a post on how they were named. Hello my name is…Awesome
My middle name is Anne (with an E) which I think just went nicely with Deborah (Debbie) and meant I fitted in perfectly with all the other Debbie Anne’s around at the time (think early 1960s).
Can I digress for a moment on the subject of names of CYCLONES? At the moment Cyclone Debbie is bashing about the coast of North Queensland and I am collecting news headlines I hear that refer to my name. These are my current favourites:
The full force of Debbie hasn’t been felt yet! (my husband loves this one)
(Cyclone) Debbie isn’t doing anything we want her to do.
(Cyclone) Debbie is not playing the game.
(Cyclone) Debbie is a force to be reckoned with.
Please note that I’m not making light of the force of the cyclone but instead I am trying to lighten the situation by making fun of myself 🙂 I must also point out I live nowhere near the cyclone and I feel for all those battening down the hatches as we speak!
Here’s photo of a storm that came out of nowhere yesterday afternoon. This is another view of my backyard. This is not Cyclone Debbie!
We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?
- Climb Mount Everest – I’ve been to Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal and that’s as high as I’d like to go. (I hate heights and being on the edge of anything).
- Bungee jump – just can’t see myself doing it (see reasons above)
- Run a marathon – don’t get me wrong, I love running but can’t seem to manage anything more that 5-10kms (and that’s on a good day!). At my advanced age I’m happy with that 🙂
- Become a famous blogger/go viral/set the world on fire with my writing – no big dreams for me!
- Appear on any form of reality TV show – sorry to disappoint anyone with this one!
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
The weeks ahead – Looks like a fun couple of weeks coming up with lots of internal travels to spend time with various family – my sister and brother in law, my daughter and my parents! Loving this retired lifestyle 🙂
Thanks again for visiting my world. Feel free to join in with this fun challenge and let me know your thoughts on anything I’ve written here. I love hearing from you.
Enjoy the week ahead everyone!
