217. What worries you about the future?
Being alone when I'm old. Hands down. I hope that I'm lucky enough to live with the person I love for a very, very long time and (as dark as it sounds) I hope for us to pass away not too far apart so neither is left to live alone. Is that a strange worry?
218. What one ‘need’ and one ‘want’ will you strive to achieve in the next twelve months?
We both need and want to find new jobs and relocate in the next year. I'll tell you all more about why as soon as I can but it's most certainly important for our happiness as well as safety and well being to get out of the place we currently live.
I would also love to be on the road again!
219. What life lessons did you have to experience firsthand before you fully understood them?
I don't know whether it classes as a life lesson or not, but fully trusting my parents opinion could be the answer to this! They always told me that they didn't like a certain person and worried about me all the time. I then wasted 7 years and experienced awful treatment until I finally realized they were right!
220. Do you like the city or town you live in? Why or why not?
NO!!! Newcastle itself if a nice city overall, to visit. But after you have lived in the suburbs and experienced true city life, when you're originally from a small town, you see the true Newcastle. The people are so 'streetwise' and forward about everything, the kids act older than their age and are allowed so much more freedom than they should at that age. There are too many flats and buildings, noise all the time and no where near enough places to explore and adventure to with Baker. I could go on but I don't want to see ungrateful for having a roof over my head and a job that is a 15minute walk away!
221. What’s the best part of being you?
The friends and family that surround me.
222. When you look back over the past month, what single moment stands out?
This lovely trip and the following day when Jake, My Dad, My 'Uncle' and Matt went to Newcastle's last home match and then we went for a meal afterwards. It was lovely to catch up with my second family.
223. What do you do to relieve stress?
Watch YouTube videos, especially the Shaytards.
Have a bath, preferably with Lush goodies!
Eat chocolate, while watching a Disney movie.
