Last SYW for 2022

Thank you Di for continuing to host Share Your World


1. If you have been given a variety of gifts, do you have a clear out of older stuff to make room for it?

It’s only on my birthday that I get lots of gifts. I usually am asked what I want for my birthday by my family members. So it’s never something that I don’t need or want, or have in excess. My friends sometimes give me clothes, which I usually don’t need, so I do give away some of the older ones to make room for the new ones.

2. Do you overindulge with food for special occasions and then come to regret it with either weight gain, guilt or severe indigestion?

Not anymore! Since my stomach surgery, overeating or overindulgence is not something I can do. I’m losing weight slowly since my surgery and that is just fine with me.

3. What is your favourite part for any celebration?

Having the family and friends over. Serving the good food, cooked lovingly by me and our cook. And then relaxing when they all go back.

4. Are you looking forward to getting bargains in the January Sales?

Nopes! I’ve stopped buying stuff just because it’s cheaper than the retail price because it still costs money!


I’m so thankful that the drug reaction from the day before yesterday has worn off and I’m feeling myself again. It was a horrendous experience. Though I was extremely lucky to have all my family around me giving me both moral support and reassurance. 😍

  1. Drug reactions, unless it’s a real allergic reaction, usually are gone in about 24 hours or a little less. But they are till a misery until they are gone. Losing weight slowly is a lot healthier than losing it very quickly. Try not to get too upset if your hair starts to thin. It often does thin after surgery, but it WILL grow back. It is not a permanent loss. I’ve discovered that almost any serious surgery makes your hair fall out. I think it’s the “insult to the body” that does it — and yes, it grows back then, too.

    1. Thanks Marilyn, it did go away in about 18 hours. Was a very painful reaction but didn’t leave any residual pain behind. I did lose hair, in chunks in the beginning. Now I think it’s the normal, 100 strands a day loss. Thanks.
