1. Do you use an ‘air freshener’ in your home/car/office? (solid, gel, spray, pot pourri, etc)
I have the battery-operated spray air freshener in my bathrooms. If I am cooking at home for guests, I use an air freshener spray to kill the food odor.
2. How often do you clean the oven or microwave?
The oven gets cleaned up if something spills in there, and the microwave gets periodically as some people using it don’t use the plastic cap over their plates/ dishes. The best way to clean it is to microwave a cup of water in it to boiling. That will generate steam to soften the old food splatters in it.
3. Do you use a fabric conditioner in your laundry and/or fragranced tumble drier sheets?
Sometimes I use it while washing baby clothes. Otherwise, I just use the detergent. We don’t get dryer sheets in Pakistan so we use dryer balls. A much cheaper alternative.
4. If you have the choice, do you prefer to get your laundry dry outside on a line or use a tumble drier?
Electricity has become very expensive here so unless it’s raining or I’ve washed towels or woolies, I put the laundry out on the clothesline to dry.
Each day has a fresh start, so don’t dwell on bad yesterdays.
I make many mistakes in my day and try to make amends for them by learning from them. I also apologize instantly to the person concerned. But sometimes it takes longer to turn the page and find a clean slate.
Thanks Di for giving us interesting and new questions every week.
Respond to this Friday Faithfuls challenge by writing about Saint Patrick’s Day, or by going with anything else that you think fits
My first grandchild, a boy was born on March 17, 2010. We, my husband and myself, became grandparents for the first time and his birthdays is always celebrated with lot of enthusiasm and excitement.
It was only when we came to America, that I came to know the significance of March 17 for the rest of the western world. While everyone celebrates Saint Patrick’s Day on March 17th, we celebrate our grandson’s birthday and becoming grandparents!

They called her Ruth-less. Fire burns holes in hearts. Paper covers rock but Red hot coal turns to ashes, where there are no records. So burn baby, burn that envy boasting ego. I’m Ruth-less, remember; I can’t get burned.
This question has been asked recently by Rory too. I guess with St Pat day being celebrated on Friday, Irish luck must be on people’s minds.
While I don’t believe that anything or anyone is lucky or unlucky, I do believe that good fortune can befall us as a result of our endeavors. You can say that what’s the difference between good luck and good fortune?
I think that luck implies a random incident, that doesn’t depend on our input. While good fortune can be an enhanced reward or outcome of our own actions. Like you’ve studied hard for the exams, and the questions asked were the ones you were especially well prepared for. Anyway, this is my thinking!
What are your views on this topic? Do you believe in luck, being lucky or unlucky?
