Sharing My World 2015 Week 23

Here’s a quick Share Your World, which is hosted by Cee. Just three questions this week, as there was also a poll. I voted but it’s a secret!


For your blog do you basically use Mac or Windows applications. What type of device laptop, desktop,tablet, phone or pad?
I always use my laptop. I find phones and such too small and my fingers are too big to type properly. For a post like this, I type it straight in (I use the “classic” post editor, I’ve never seen this new “beep boop” one). For fiction, I write it in MS Word and then paste it in for preview and editing.

If you were to treat yourself to the “finer things” what would you treat yourself to?
I’m not really sure what I would consider the “finer things”. Weird and expensive food when I would rather have a pizza? Maybe I’d get one of the supermarket’s “premium” pizzas, just for a treat :-).

Although I wouldn’t right now, because my oven is broken :-(. I’ve needed a new cooker for a while as the grill is broken, but now that I’ve lost the oven as well I have re-prioritised it from “at some point” to “immediate”. For yesterday’s Saturday Pizza I had to do an emergency cheese omelette with chilli.

Can you change a car tyre?
Yeah, probably :-). I haven’t had to do it for years. I always jack the car up first, then realise I can’t get the wheel nuts off like that and have to jack it back down again. Duh.

To be honest, if I needed to change my tyre I’d probably root around in the boot for the jack, see if I can find the jack points and ultimately call the AA (Automobile Association). I pay them a fortune and haven’t called them out since  2002. For the near £1000 they’ve had off me in that time, the least they can do is change my tyre.

    I enjoyed reading your responses this week. Thanks. 😀

    I’m with you on the tire changing. And the pizza. We eat a lot of pizza around here. It’s our “fall back position” in answer to the eternal question, “What’s for dinner?”

      It’s the lowest common denominator. When all imagination fails, have a pizza! Is it our fault pizza is so scrummy?

    Well that chilli cheese omelet sounded delicious. Those are a great hit around here. Our oven totally exploded last year 😦 It’s a pain in the butt to have to spend money unexpectedly. Who has unexpected money?

      Fortunately I was going to buy a new cooker in a couple of months anyway because of the broken grill. So it just forced the issue!
      The chilli and cheese omelette was lovely 🙂

    I agree with you about working on a laptop. I can’t work on small devices either. I also agree about not using the beep bop post editor. As for cheese omelettes, they’re good to eat at any time. Yum. 🙂


    • June 15, 2015 at 11:45 am

      Yes, cheese omelettes are always good! Also with some bacon thrown in. Mmm, bacon.

    My oven broke 4 years ago, and I have yet to miss it…


    • June 15, 2015 at 11:46 am

      But… how do you cook your pizzas? 😦
      Or is it all about the fried chicken with you? 🙂


      • June 15, 2015 at 1:09 pm

        As long as the burners continue to work on top of the oven to make my fried chicken, I will be a happy camper!

        Pizza…… blech! (Yes, blasphemy!)

    Enjoyed. I agree on the ‘finer things”…. why pay so much more when there is such enjoyment in the lesser?


    • June 15, 2015 at 6:05 pm

      Exactly. A little sensibly-priced treat now and then is what I like.

    I hope you get a new stove with excellent oven soon. 😀


    • June 16, 2015 at 12:08 pm

      Me too, I have one in mind. Hopefully I will order one at the weekend, as I’m off work next week so I’ll be home for deliveries 🙂

    Granny can’t switch a tyre either, she has her personnel for it…that’s Grandpaw 😉 Pizza without an oven, is like fish without…a cat…and tuna without me..MOL 😀 Pawkisses 🙂 ❤

      You love your tuna 🙂
      My new cooker is being delivered on Thursday. For yesterday’s “pizza Saturday” I drove to the pizza place and brought one home.
