Here are my answers to this week’s Cee’s Share Your World
When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?
Ah writing! The only time I pick up a writing implement is to jot down a shopping list or to do a crossword puzzle or Sudoku. And then it’s usually a pencil.
The best thing I learned at school besides Reading – was typing. I have always found handwriting a struggle. My fine-motor co-ordination is not good!
In my early days of teaching filling in the attendance register – and balancing it at the end of each term, writing reports and keeping records accurately was a nightmare – I always had to rewrite things – no tippex was allowed. I was the first person at my school to start doing it all on the computer. Yay for technology – I embrace it passionately. It certainly made my life a lot easier.
Having said all this – I did learn Italic – and loved it. But writing by hand is a struggle for me and I very much prefer my devices.
Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?
I would love to be both but am not talented in either in the least. Much to my children’s dismay I break into song at the drop of a hat and Hubby and I are always the first on the dance floor.
If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating?
I would love to debate anything about Education – like – to give homework or not to give homework.
What are you a “natural” at doing?
I guess I will have to answer that I’m natural at working very hard at anything I tackle because I have no talent for anything! When I tell people I have no talents they respond with – nonsense – everybody has a talent but they can’t come up with a good one for me. I will tell you, however, what I love doing. Teaching, writing (creatively and factually), doing stuff on a computer or electronic device – and showing others how to do it.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Easter brought home to me how lucky I am to have such an amazing extended family and even though I don’t see all of them all that often I’m grateful that they’re in my life.
No plans for the next week but I’m sure something interesting will happen.
