Share Your World- 22-6-20

Melanie is the host of SYW

the ‘it’s a crime’ version.  I’m going to ask all crime and philosophies about crime in this week’s share.  


Have you ever ‘dined and dashed” (i.e. eaten the meal and then run out the restaurant door without paying)?

What me…….

I would never even think of doing something like that. First of all, I don’t have the guts to do it.

Secondly even as a young person I lacked the sense of adventure to do something like this. And it does take guts and a sense of adventure to do something like this!

Have you ever been in a car accident and either left the scene of the accident (providing it was a fender bender and not serious) or denied culpability for causing it when you did, (if it were minor or serious)?

Thankfully, never. Though once the other person lammed it after he had rammed his car into mine on rain-slicked road. The only time I did a runner was when I flipped a bird at a man driving recklessly and on the wrong side of the road and he got so angry that he turned around and started following my car. I panicked and drove straight home and locked the gate. Thankfully he didn’t catch me on the road. I never did that again.

(Oldie which has been asked many times before)   Have you ever found a wallet or purse or some money (over $20) in the street and just taken it, thinking ‘finders keepers, losers weepers?   Or would you be ‘good’ and hand it in?  

You can guess my answer to this one too. I don’t pick up anything that I find lying around. Money or wallet. Once I found someone’s credit card on the street and since the issuing bank was a few steps away, I handed it in.

What was the last thing you stole or shoplifted?   If you never ever considered doing that, tell us your secret!   🙂


I guess I am a boring person.


I loved the posts Melanie shared on her blog about being kind.

This week I have a personal goal to share that I am very proud of.

After a looooong time, I have fitted into a jean which is a regular size, as opposed to a plus size jean. I am pretty chuffed about it.

I found these guys having a party one day. No thoughts of social distancing!

  1. Congrats on the jeans! I felt the same when I went shopping and discovered I had come down from a size 22 to a size 16. I’m wearing a pair of baggy trousers now that are a 14, but the jeans are still comfy!

      1. I tried on a size 14 jeans and they fitted. Movement and blood circulation are a must though, so I haven’t gone for a smaller size yet! My 16s are about 8 years old now, one pair is baggy and the other still new so a good fit!

              1. I’m five stone lighter than I was in 2001, but most of the weight has come off since 2016. I’m struggling at the moment to maintain it but have stayed within the allowed parameters of my target since August even if it is mostly at the higher end.

                1. I have at least 50 more pounds to go before I’d say that my weight is in normal range. But I am in no hurry. As I’ve found to my loss, the quicker the weight comes off, the quicker I gain it back.


                  1. Slow is good so I was happy at losing a steady couple of pounds a month. I give up on the official charts as they are totally ridiculous for my age and health issues, but I am happy at the weight I am now and maintaining it. A doctor told me a long time ago that my body had its own ‘natural weight’ and once I found it, it would stay there. Guess I’ve arrived.

  2. Congrats Sadje!! That’s wonderful🎉👖

    I remember when I was doing all the walking and my weight didn’t change that much but I went from a size 18 to a size 11 and that was incredible! I was very proud of myself and you should be very proud of yourself! Your husband won’t recognize you when you get home😉😂🤗
