If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?
You mean I have to choose? I can still cook and clean, although that does not mean that I enjoy it. Gardening is slowly becoming out of the question as I cannot bend down, but for that I have a strong son that does it in a few minutes that would take me a few hours. He is willing and never complains. I asked him to gather the Autumn leaves and five minutes later there was not a leaf left. He is autistic but a wonderful help and does everything with a method. And I do not have to hire him, he does it automatically.
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?
My computer and all my online stuff including iPad, my walking stick and my Kindle. Otherwise no problem. At the age of 71 I am not so bothered. I cannot take it with me in any case.
What calms you down?
Who needs calming down? What really gets me is when the computer has a funny moment. I ask Mr. Swiss for help and then we both need calming down.
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I had a visit from my son and daughter-in-law and got to meet my grandson. He makes a lot of noise, is discovering that he is in the world and I became a real grandmother. What could be better.
I also met a neighbour in Facebook of all places. I was dithering around on a web site belonging to the community where my dad moved to. I also knew the area very well because most of my relatives moved into the area. I posted something about my dad and met his ex-neighbour that I also knew on my visits. They had two wonderful little kids. And then I got a message from someone that was our neighbour where we used to live in East London and moved to the same area as my dad, and even visited him a couple of times. After a few backwards and forwards I realised who he was. It is always good to meet people from the past.
