Sharing My World Week 50

Here is my contribution for Share Your World, hosted by Cee at her photography blog. This week’s questions come to us courtesy of Dawn over at The Day After.


Do you have a signature dish? If not is there one in your family?
Here is my recipe for “Saturday Pizza”!

  1. Pre-heat oven to 190oC (because that’s the temperature I cook everything at)
  2. Remove pizza from freezer and take off plastic wrapping
  3. Bung in oven for 8 minutes
  4. Whip it out and add extra pepperoni and cheese
  5. Bung back in oven until cheese melted
  6. Take out of oven and eat

Does that count? No? Boo :-(.

Do you have a favourite board game?
Not really, as board games are a bit boring on your own. I quite like Monopoly, though. And also Trivial Pursuit because I don’t like games where you have to use any brain power, so “knowledge” games are good – you either know it or you don’t. (I don’t, I know virtually nothing about anything.)

Is there a household chore that you enjoy?
Is this a trick question? It is, isn’t it? No?

I actually used to quite like ironing. It was quite relaxing, with some music playing along. Of course, now that I’m alone again I haven’t done any ironing for six years. I don’t enjoy it that much. I have an iron and ironing board, but the ironing board (which I bought in 2008) is still in its plastic wrapping!

Here is my cupboard under the stairs, in which I’ve marked the ironing board, iron and Hoover with blue arrows. In a few months they will probably be buried!



What is one thing you will never care about?
There have been some great answers to this in other people’s posts, and I don’t want to copy them.

I’m sure there are lots of things I will never care about, but since I don’t care about them I don’t think of them and therefore I don’t know quite what they are.

* Disclaimer to all prospective girlfriends who may be reading this – it’s all in jest! Obviously I’m constantly cooking delicious food and cleaning and ironing and whatnot 🙂

I hope everyone had a great Christmas/holiday and Happy New Year to everyone!

    The storage closet looks somewhat tidy 🙂 I’m impressed you have an ironing board. I have an iron but not an ironing board. Married almost 14 years now so it’s a bit late to rush out and buy one.

      It’s never too late to own an ironing board! Go on, you know you want one.

    You forgot to include those weird fish things that use Brits love so much in your pizza recipe 😉
    Had to laugh at the disclaimer!


    • December 28, 2014 at 8:40 am

      Anchovies? I don’t think fish have any business on a pizza 🙂
      I thought a disclaimer was in order. You never know!


      • December 28, 2014 at 8:46 am

        I agree, fish should be battered and served with chips!

    Ali, Gotcha! How can you disclaim about not ironing when you showed the ironing board still in the plastic wrapper. Something funny there. I know you cook a bit though. You’ve talked about it in the past. Happy Holidays! 🙂 — Suzanne

      Rumbled 🙂
      I do chilli. I have four portions in the freezer at the moment. Although I chop the onions etc and put in tinned tomatoes, I also chuck in a jar of chilli sauce so it’s sort of cheating! Though I’m sure it would be fine without the extra sauce.

    Very disappointed there aren’t any precocious, magical creatures living under the stairs.

    My ex got custody of the ironing board and iron, so eight years since I’ve done that. If it can’t be made presentable to wear with a quick run in the dryer, then it is too much work for me. 🙂

      There are but they hid behind the recycling bags when they saw the camera.

      I totally agree about the whole ironing thing. And creases generally disappear after a couple of hours wear!

    I burned myself with an iron once. 😦 Dangerous contraption.


    • December 28, 2014 at 3:37 pm

      Best left in the cupboard, those things. Or in the shop. Melt them all down to make yo-yo’s.


  6. December 28, 2014 at 1:49 pm

    I am so glad I wear nothing that needs to be ironed. I would burn myself, the cats, the house down…


    • December 28, 2014 at 3:37 pm

      I can’t even imagine trying to iron with an inquisitive cat leaping around all over the place.


  7. December 28, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    That is how I felt about for the 4th question. I like your pizza recipe too. 😉


    • December 28, 2014 at 4:56 pm

      Yes, a tricky one!
      It’s an awesome pizza 🙂


  8. December 28, 2014 at 6:04 pm

    Love the disclaimer at the end Ali 😉


  9. December 28, 2014 at 6:39 pm

    Probably your favorite recipe is really ours. We certainly do a LOT of frozen pizza around here!!


    • December 29, 2014 at 12:47 pm

      You can’t go wrong with frozen pizza!


  10. December 28, 2014 at 9:51 pm

    Love your disclaimer! Always a good thing to add a disclaimer to everything!

    And my little boy loves your favorite recipe! Nom nom nom, he said – although I prefer mine with pineapple 🙂

    *Disclaimer: just to have one.


    • December 29, 2014 at 12:48 pm

      Everyone loves pizza 🙂

      I didn’t want to sound like a complete slob so I thought a disclaimer was in order!


  11. December 30, 2014 at 11:44 am

    Fabulous answers as usual, I love the pizza recipe lol. I’ve fallen badly behind with mine, shame as I wanted to complete a whole year at something. Still, maybe next year lol 🙂


    • December 30, 2014 at 1:19 pm

      I’m sure “Week 1” will be starting soon!


  12. December 31, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    Love your disclaimer. Hahaha! Since I don’t work anymore ironing is very rare. I’m a girly girl so occasionally I need to be well groomed.


    • January 1, 2015 at 7:29 am

      I’m lucky that I can wear jeans and a jumper to work which don’t need to be ironed!
