Sharing my world and views- 14th November’22

Di is our gracious host for SYW


1. Does the weather affect your mood?

Not really! Hot weather may be more uncomfortable, but it doesn’t affect my mood. When my thyroid disease wasn’t diagnosed, I used to feel miserable in summer, sweating and getting angry about the smallest things. After my diagnosis and treatment, I turned human again instead of an angry Hulk!

2. If a stranger smiles at you or says ‘good morning’ when they pass you in the street, do you return it?

Oh yes, definitely. Unless….. it’s a creepy guy trying to be too frank! I also say Salam with a smile when I feel the other person is receptive.

3. If you had a choice of just one of these things to eat, what would it be and why?
Chocolate, a sweet pastry, a plate of chips/fries (this is not a forever choice, just one instance).

Chocolate, always.

4. If you could go back to when you were a specific age, what would that be? Why?

I am very comfortable in my skin right now. I would never want to go back to my past life. And though I have many old age ailments, the biggest benefit I have of my current age is that I’ve come to terms with what I am, and who I am and this is the best feeling in the world.


Today was day 8 after my surgery, and my stitches came out. They have healed well. I have to be careful how big a sip I take but the pain in my stomach is reduced to bearable. And I’ve lost 4kg in one week! Yay

Thank you Di for these interesting questions.

  1. I usually scroll past these, but this one caught my eye, mainly because of the Maxine cartoon! Wonderful!!! Love Maxine! And I must put in my two cents worth on #3 … PEANUT BUTTER!!! Peanut butter is nature’s most perfect food and if I had to live forever on a deserted island with only one food, it would be peanut butter! Morning, noon, night … middle of the night … PEANUT BUTTER!!! 😊 Now, if you wish to add chocolate to my peanut butter, then I’m okay with that, but the peanut butter comes first!
