Weekly Wondering // Week 4

Happy Sunday again all! For the explanation of what is going on here, please do click here and have a quick read.
Other than that, in short, I am answering 7 of these 365 thought provoking questions each week until I complete the year. I already did this in 2013 and am revisiting them to compare my answers.

What would you regret not fully doing, being or having in your life?
Being a doggy mama and having dogs in general. I also would regret not helping where I can. Over the last couple of years, I have had the opportunity to help out a baby pigeon, a fledgling blackbird and two young sparrows and if I hadn't stepped in to help, I would very much regret that.

Are you holding onto something that you need to let go of?
Not that I know of?

When you are 80-years-old, what will matter to you the most?
How cold I am? I hate being cold. haha. I dunno. Probably where I live and with who. I'm sick of having bad neighbours everywhere I go, so hopefully, at that age, I will be in a nice, quiet, detached house with no neighbours and perhaps some sort of friend or family who can pop in occasionally to make sure I haven't fallen over or have been eating properly.

When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards and just do what you know is right?
I have no idea how to answer this, because, to be honest, I'm not 100% sure I understand what it means? This week's post is going swimmingly eh? haha 
I'm not a big one for taking risks in general if that's what it means. I prefer to just stay in my house and am rather a hypochondriac. 

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
A mix between a 60+-year-old and a younger child. I like peace and quiet, bird watching and being at home on my sofa...however, I also have an obvious love for Disney which is usually considered to be something for younger people (despite Walt himself saying it isn't just for kids). If you don't know my age, how old do you think I am?

Would you break the law to save a loved one?
It depends on what the situation was of course. If it was something more 'minor', that didn't affect another life then most probably. 

What makes you smile?
A lot. Nice sunrises, a good book, birds singing, other animals that cross my path. Most things Baker does, many movies, DLP, snuggly blankets...the list would actually be rather long! I've been thinking of attempting one of those A-Z type posts all about things that make me happy - look of for it!

Make sure to look back on this same post from 2013 here, and see the differences in my answers! (I completed writing this before checking back to my old answers by the way). You can also see the series in whole from last time here and of course last week's Weekly Wondering here.


  1. I'm really enjoying these posts Danielle, I love your answer to the age question and the final one about what makes you smile, I definitely agree, simple things like sunrises, good books and our loved ones are all up there for me, and I was nodding my head along with your age question too because that's very similar to myself! I flip-flop between eternally childlike and an old soul, as I've been called before, haha! - Tasha

    1. Thank you! They are much less stressful to put together haha.
      Indeed! I think it's the best way to be, eternally youthful but with the wisdom of age ;) haha


  2. I've been so bad at keeping up with everyone's blogs, I didn't even know you'd started a new series! I love this idea :) the questions are good too!

    I don't think I know you're age but from a photo I'd say 25, but from what I know of you I'd say late twenties maybe even early thirties! I guess that because you seem so together and sensible, and are a super mum to Baxter! Did I guess right? :P

    1. Oh I think I should get the award for being worst at keeping up with blogs. There are just SO many now. I'd told myself I'd try harder this year but I just haven't enough hours in the day.
      I'm 26! :) Good guess :P Thank you!!


  3. I like the fourth question, that's definitely something that goes round my head all the time. Especially when I thought about quitting my PhD... I stayed because of risks and rewards and then I eventually gave up and just quit... as for when the time is right? I have no idea. I like to go with my gut.

    1. Do you think the rewards outweighed the risks now you left? I think so, especially with Moxie!!


  4. I like these types of posts!
    The answer to question three is what I'd be hoping for too! πŸ˜„

    And also the age thing! At times I feel really old! And at times I also feel like I'm not a grown up at all πŸ˜‚

    Ooooh I look forward to your A-Z of happy πŸ˜„ x

  5. Thanks :)
    I think that is the best way to be age-wise!
    Awesome! It'll be up in March sometime I think ;)
