Sit back! I have 4 topics for you today.
I would like to find out more about a topic that is a Westerner trend nowadays. Namely giveaways. Topic 3 will discuss this briefly.
Christine at projectlighttolife picked me to be one of her readers of this month. It is basically about the story of Katan. You might have read it already as a post on Mothers’ Day here. This is Topic 4.
See this breastfeeding dog? I have never seen a dog feed his pup before. Have you? Street dogs are everywhere. You can see them sleeping on the road. They walk around restaurants near the beach. So one must look under the table before sitting down… HAHA
Scooters can be seen all over the island. And if you have a vehicle you need gas. So no matter how tempting these bottles look: they are not for drinking…
This is the second time we moved to Samui. Before the hotel was built (my husband is the general manager of a hotel we live in) we lived in an area that was not encouraging anyone to walk but at least it was not super dangerous to do so. I had to be careful because people driving their scooters or cars were not expecting to see someone walk at the edge of the road. Another thing you have to think about are snakes… If you see a snake it is not the time to take pictures so sorry to disappoint you… But I think this tractor is pretty funny on the road….
I am OK with having people touch Zoárd. They can even hold him if I am in a good mood (just kidding…). But I cannot imagine anyone babysit for me. My husband started looking after Zoárd a couple of days ago. I go to the gym while he is with him for 60-80 minutes. I feel very good about it but having someone else outside of our family of three babysit for Zoárd makes me shiver.
I would love to hear some comments about this. I am particularly interested in when You guys started to feel more relaxed about having a babysitter. How did you do the hiring? How did you make sure the strange who became your babysitter can be trusted?
I have no pictures for the giveaway topic. I have lots of questions though!
I always feel it is a bit of a devilish thing. Yes, I am seriously talking about giveaways. They make me get all excited. I imagine how I might be the lucky one! At the same time I feel it is wrong what I am doing. First of all, I do not need the prices I am trying to win. If I really, really need something I probably already have it.
I spend too much time with giveaways. I become a robot looking for “words of the day” and commenting on blogs about what patterns I like (concerning the giveaway product). I like and follow people who are really strangers who I will never have a conversation with. Not even a short one!
And I never win. Do You? What do you think about giveaways? Are there little tricks on how you can raise your chances to win? Here I go again…fantasizing about winning… HAHA
Actually for this topic I already gave you two links. I am happy to be one of the readers of the month but at the same time it feels like I am trying to take extra credit for the help we were able to give Katan. And it is really not about this. I like competitions. I like to read on blogs: hey, if you have something to say about this and this email me! Getting back to Topic 3 a little bit: I think with a giveaways I have a hard time knowing that I cannot control who wins and who doesn’t. With projects like this one I have control over what and how I share something about me. When something I said is being published by another person I feel that it was up to me. It was not up to Mr. LUCK.
Anyways, I hope you found at least one topic that you enjoyed reading. See you next time!
