Journal Jar – Favourite Animal? Why?

What is your favourite animal?  Tell why.

Oh! This is another hard one.  I have a few favourite animals but I really don’t know why I like them.

I’ve always loved dolphins, I don’t know why but I always have.  More recently it’s been because of the evidence which shows that they interact very well with disabled people.  Certainly, Adam enjoyed it as much as we did and interacted really well.

I also like dogs, lions, elephants, giraffes …

Share Your World: 2014 – Week 22

Aargh!  Late again!  I don’t know why I can’t seem to get myself round to blogging at the moment.  I need to re-cap my challenges from May and set challenges for June (think I might be giving those a miss!) too.  Anyway, on to Share Your World Week 22.

Regarding animals would you prefer not having them around or having domestics pets, farm animals, or seeing them in nature or the zoo?

I like animals but we don’t have any pets, unless you count the spiders! because I don’t want to *have* to take a dog out for a walk and I don’t really like cats.  I love seeing animals in their natural habitat but that isn’t always possible.  I also understand that some animals would be extinct if we didn’t have zoos with breeding programmes etc so zoos aren’t necessarily a bad thing.  I love going on safari too.

Are you a collector of anything? 

I collect spoons and have a collection of 60+ from places I’ve been and/or lived.  I am also a collector of Disney pins 🙂

If you could know the answer to any question, besides “What is the meaning of life?”, what would it be?

Surprisingly, it is not “What is wrong with my son?”  I’ve got used to not knowing and it wouldn’t make any difference to us or him if we had a name for his syndrome.  However, sometimes I wonder how my life would have turned out if I’d made different choices along the way.

If you were to treat yourself to the “finer things” what would you treat yourself to? 

Finer things?  That probably depends on your definition of the “finer things”.  I don’t want to treat myself to anything that I don’t already have but a holiday to Disney every year instead of every other would be nice 😀  Oh and maybe travel first class to get there and stay in the nicest room in the most expensive Disney resort 🙂
