Share Your World – 2014 Week 15

4 Comments

For your blog do you basically use Windows or Mac, laptop, desktop, pad, or phone?share-your-world2

I usually use a Windows desktop computer but will occasionally use my laptop.  At a push I’ll use my iPad or even my phone but don’t really like to as it is using the app so I don’t know what it’s going to look like when it’s published until I can get on my computer.

 

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Oh, lots of things: an optician, solicitor, teacher … I don’t think I ever wanted to be an administrator although I did volunteer in the office of a refugee camp in Hong Kong when I was 15.  I do like being the “Queen of Paperwork” now though.

Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?

I grew up all over the world.  We left the UK when I was 2 and didn’t stop moving until I left school at 18.  I grew up in major cities in Africa, Asia and Australia.  I loved moving around but I was grounded too as I went to boarding school in the UK.  It’s very difficult to answer people when they ask “Where are you from?”  Do I say south London because that is where I went to school or Kent because that is where I was born?  Or any of the many places we lived when I was a child?  Or Hampshire because that is where I lived the longest?

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 

Probably in my early to mid-30s.  Most of my friends are either 10 years older or 10 years younger than me and I’m always told that I don’t look as old as I am.  I actually feel better than I did 10 years ago too.  A couple of weeks ago I was asked if I was my son’s older sister 😀

  1. that last question is a hard one! I get told I look younger than I am too…and I think my thinking / outlook etc ran aground about 25 which is slightly ridiculous!

    • I think I’m about 25 to 30 inside. Could be because apart from my boss, who is older than me, almost everyone I work with is under 25! Doesn’t hurt that I’m a little bit bonkers too.

  2. I’m thrilled you participated this week in Share Your World. I enjoyed reading your post.
