Share Your World 30 April 2018 – with a bonus limerick!
Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?
Yes I use paper money but I also use cards (a lot) and yes paper money in my purse is sorted sequentially according to denomination. It just makes more sense this way!!
I started my working life as a ‘check-out chick’ at Woolworths, as a teenager, before tills told you how much change to give a customer, and I’m very comfortable with handling money. I then went on to become a Bank Teller for a number of years and loved counting and sorting money. I was very proud of my ability to balance my till every day and appreciated the task at trying to find any errors.
I love travelling and handling the different types of notes, the colours (or lack of) and working out their value in the various countries we visit. Oh that’s right I’ll be in the UK next week and will have to remember that a pound is about double the value of our dollar! Our Australian money is always a delight to return home to with its bright colours and plastic springiness 🙂
You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?
Yes I’m quite comfortable doing nothing for loooong stretches of time….I think of it as taking time for myself but in reality I’m just being lazy! I’m not really looking forward to the loooong sitting on our plane trip to the UK next week as it’s usually not that comfortable, but it has to be done so I’ll just put up with it and make the most of it with reading, watching movies and sleeping.
What is your greatest strength?
That’s a tough one! I asked The Mathematician and his answer was my enthusiasm for family which I think is pretty true.
Also I’d probably go as far to say my enthusiasm for just about anything, once I get involved, my quirky randomness, my loyalty and my committment to things are my main strengths. It definitely makes life interesting!
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?
Following on from my previous answer, and maybe to illustrate the point :), I just happened to write my first ever limerick this morning, while lying in bed just thinking of things, as you do! This made me smile.
My middle daughter and her husband are having their first baby in September and it just so happens to be our first grandchild. Its nickname is Spud by the way 🙂
There once was a baby called Spud
Who was as happy as a pig in mud
Life was good in mummy’s tummy
And the food was really yummy
But come September that will all change with a thud!
I admit, I’m no poet, but I do enjoy thinking creatively. My daughter was quite impressed with my limerick (for a first attempt) up until the ominous sounding ending! I’d love to hear your thoughts on my first ever limerick!! At least I think it’s my first ever one, but maybe not….
Once again I’m supposed to be packing and preparing for our big adventure instead of blogging but never fear, it’s up next to do on my list and I’ll get there eventually! Just keep smiling Debbie 🙂
I’m also smiling at the continued gloriousness of warm, sunny autumn days, friendship and life in general. This photo made me smile too. The prompt for our 52 week photo project was from the hip, which meant no looking through the view finder at the shot, just taking it literally ‘from the hip’. This was one of my more successful attempts, with many of the others relegated to trash quite quickly, but this one kind of worked out OK.
Thanks to Cee for the questions – I enjoy these posts and I never think too long about the answers, instead I tend to write the first thing that comes into my head, so it’s always a fun and spontaneous post 🙂
You can check out Cee’s post with her answers here and feel free to join in. I always enjoy hearing from you 🙂
Have a great week ahead!
