My Monday World asks us to share our world. His questions today are


When you were a kid, did you eat the crusts on your sandwich or not? I hated crusts on my bread, and peel on my apples. I’m not sure why I hated them so much. I will eat the crust of the bread without any bother. It tastes better. Mum used to cut the crusts off, and it was only when I was an adult they actually sold bread that way.

Are you a fan of musicals—why or why not? I love musicals. When I was growing up cartoons (Bambi, Jungle Book, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty) and as a teenager things like Singing in the Rain, Mary Poppins, Grease, The King and I, and many more. I loved all the dancing and singing. it always made me happy.

Is it difficult to do what you do? (for a living, hobby etc.).  If you’re retired, what you ‘did’ previously for a job can be substituted. When I retire I will use my knowledge of English to do what I love the most. Writing is part of me. I was eight when I realised I wanted to be an author. It is a way of controlling the outcome of life. I have worked in many places. I am a teaching assistant now, but before that I was a postwoman, cashier, restaurant worker, office worker.

What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to?  (Doesn’t have to be a rock concert either). I’ve not been to any concert in my life. However, I would love to see Bon Jovi live.


Looking back over your life, what is one thing you’re grateful for?  One thing you really regret? I am grateful for my family, most of all my children and grandchildren. They make me smile, laugh, and cry, but most of all I am so proud of them.

I regret not being able to talk about being bullied when I was at school. I thought it was my fault, that I was doing something wrong. Now I understand it was down to the bullies. Nobody is perfect, nobody is better than anyone else, and nobody has the right to think they can physically or mentally hurt a person because they don’t like them.

We are all different, but that’s what makes the world a great place.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.

  1. Thanks Diana for Sharing Your World! You are the first person I’ve ‘met’ who has never been to a concert of some type. And yes, I think Bon Jovi will be rockin’ em for a while yet, I hope you can go see him if he comes your way! 🙂 I’ve never been a big fan of crusts, would rather feed those, crushed up to the wild birds. Nobody ought to be bullied by either adults or peers, and I’m sorry that you endured such ugliness. Now a days it seems there’s a lot more focus on the issue than when we were younger. You have worn a lot of ‘hats’ in your professional life, what a lovely variety of skills you must have! Have a wonderful week!
