Getting to Know You..


Laura of lauravent69 is the creator of this challenge.

Guidelines to the challenge are: Answer the questions, include the image, tag 2 and include ping back to the creator.

Melanie of Sparks from a combustible Mind tagged me, so many thanks Sparky.

Name a moment in your life when you felt you were most courageous.

2017, not walking off a cliff and ending my life.

If you had to choose only one breakfast cereal for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

I am not actually that big on cereals admittedly. These days l opt for a banana.

When have you felt the most scared?

1987, 10 seconds from impact.

If you could sing like any musical artist, who would you choose?

Rather boringly, no one it’s a skill l have never been particularly fascinated with.

Do you collect anything?

These days l collect nothing but over the years l have collected many things.

If you could live inside a tv show or movie, what would it be?

This is a question l see a lot, and l can honestly say l have never felt even remotely inclined to appear in any of them.

Have you ever had a reoccurring dream? If so, what was it?

Mostly l experience reoccuring nightmares, for thirty years my biggest one was experiencing a car crash over and over again.

What’s your Zodiac sign? 

Taurus = pending interpretation the plodder or full of shit.


With regards tagging two – okay –

Suze of Suziland Too or Obsolete Childhood

  1. Okay you MUST (well you don’t HAVE to, but I’ll be curious for eons if you don’t) share the tale of the most scared you ever were. Ten seconds from impact? Wow!! And the courage. If that wasn’t a deliberate walk off a cliff, or even if it were, that did take courage…I’m glad you didn’t succeed, whichever it was. And I can’t eat breakfast (cold) cereal any more, unless I want it dry. Lactose intolerance doesn’t care if one loves their brekkie cereal, one will still get sick as a dog. It’s really annoying. Thanks for playing along Rory!! 🙂

    1. Hey Melanie.

      One of the reasons l started this blog was to write about the near walk off the cliff, but l changed my blog significantly from when it was born back in September 2017, it’s now nothing like it was.

      I had a serious depression in 2017 in the early part, but 2017 was a real game changer for me. I got myself through a lot that year, and at the end of the year purged the devils.

      1987, is a tale of truth. I was 24, l had a son and a fiance. I had a crash. Then l didn’t have them. I got hit by a 40 foot arctic lorry which hit black ice and slipped and hit me side on on a T junction.

      The reoccuring dream l mention in the questions is the 30yr guilt l purged in 2017, which was my 30 year anniversary and the last time l carried a guilt that wasn’t mine to carry.

      There are trace elements to 1987 in this blog, a sad poem, somewhere deep in the vaults is the story of the 17th November 1987.

      Yes, l can’t eat many things now due to intolerances.

  2. Oh my goodness!! :O What a life you’ve lived, and my utmost respect for having endured all that and come out the other side, being the unique you we all know and love. I’m so very sorry about your family too. But now you have a great woman and a great dog, not the same perhaps, but one finds their family sometimes in unique places… take care Rory!

    1. Thanks Melanie – l am very pleased with all that l have achieved, l am especially chuffed that l did come out the other end alive and in one piece 🙂
