Aside: Which Children’s TV Character Are You?

I was told yesterday my adventures are reminiscent of a small man in a bowler hat and a smart black suit.  Mr Benn used to walk a long the road to the costume shop, choose an outfit and get changed.  He always left the fitting room by a magic door and thereby enjoyed an adventure suited to his costume.

Now I need to be absolutely clear – my adventures involve NO DRESSING UP okay? the nearest I come to this is donning colour coded gloves for kite flying (red for the red handle and blue for the blue handle – just chance the gloves came as a two pair pack – one pair in red and one in blue).  I also don’t wear a bowler hat – never!

However I suppose the comparison is not a bad one – Mr Benn’s portal was a magic door – mine is Stagecoach buses.  I also suppose I should be grateful it was Mr Benn I am compared to … it could have been Mrs Wooden Top or Florence from the Magic Roundabout … happy days when children’s programmes were, well children’s programmes!

Thank you for this happy analogy … it made me smile and that makes me more serene.

So which Children’s Programme Character might you be likened to?

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
