Sharing My World 2015 Week 50

It’s week 50, and time for my Share Your World post, hosted by Cee.


Favourite thing to photograph? Write? Or Cook?
Photograph – nature scenes, like this scene at St. Nectan’s Glen.



Write: darkly humorous death fiction bwahahaha πŸ™‚

Cook: Pizzzzzzaaaaa!




Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing?
Swinging? Whayhay! Oh, right, I see. Yes, it was fun. Whenever I see a swing I want to have a go, but firstly they’re too small, secondly they may not be rated to my weight and thirdly I’d probably get told off by disgruntled parents who think it’s high time their little Jimmy or Jemima had a go.

What has surprised you about blogging?
That I’ve “met” so many lovely people from all over the world. Who knew I would have so many friends? πŸ™‚

List at least five favourite desserts.

  • Black Forest gateau
  • Eton Mess
  • Strawberry gateau
  • Any one of various ice cream concoctions, like knickerbocker glory, banana split and the like
  • Pretty much anything else that’s not very good for me πŸ™‚

    Like you, I find desserts that aren’t good for me taste the best. I’m glad you clarified “swinging”. Some answers could be x-rated if the question was misunderstood. Good answers, Ali. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

      Yeah, I thought I should avert any confusion πŸ™‚
      The more fat and sugar, the better the dessert!

    I’m with you on the eton mess!

      The best one I ever had was in a place I stayed when I visited Wales a couple of years ago. It was perfection πŸ™‚

    Thanks so much for sharing. I feel the same way about swinging now. πŸ˜€

    Reading your answers is always fun!

    I’m always tempted to jump on the swings when I go to the park. Unfortunately, that’s a good way for a childless adult to get labeled as a prevert these days…


    • December 20, 2015 at 6:33 pm

      Sad but true. Whenever I walk past a playground I’m careful not to look, just in case.


  8. December 20, 2015 at 7:26 pm

    I think if it is “good” for you, it probably is NOT a dessert πŸ™‚


    • December 20, 2015 at 7:47 pm

      I believe the definition of “dessert” mentions a minimum calorie value πŸ™‚


  9. December 21, 2015 at 4:11 pm

    Your pics look good, especially the pizza, my weakness. Merry Christmas


  10. December 21, 2015 at 9:19 pm

    Your list of favourite desserts is very similar to mine. πŸ™‚ I adore black forest gateau and anything involving cream, strawberries and meringue has to be lovely!


    • December 25, 2015 at 5:42 am

      Crumbs, sorry, I missed your comment. Well, I remember reading it…
      I’m feeling hungry now thinking of cream and whatnot and it’s not even 6 am yet! I could scoff Black Forest gateau at any time of the day or night πŸ™‚

    I had never heard of any of your desserts- except ice cream (of course). But I googled…. So, you are definitely a cake kid! However the Eton Mess… I will have to try that!!!


    • December 24, 2015 at 9:33 am

      Definitely cake. I love desserts! Eton Mess is great, as is Black Forest Gateau – very tasty.

    Googled gateau and Eton Mess, did not have a clue.
    I’m not a strawberry fan but the remaining choices doubd great.

    Pizza might be one of my favorite foods. Love the leftovers cold with coffee in the morning.
    In Bangkok most hotel resturants had pizza on the menu. Heaven!


    • December 25, 2015 at 5:34 am

      I love cold pizza too. I usually sprinkle some Tabasco sauce on. Sounds like Bangkok is my kind of place (food-wise anyway!).
      I like strawberries anyway but I love them in desserts and cakes.

    Beautiful photo of St. Nectan’s Glen, which, I imagine, is in Cornwall. I’d love to see that place. After making that pizza, who knows where your culinary talents will take you to next? As for desserts, it’s such a pity that all the yummiest ones aren’t good for us! Life can be so darned cruel!


    • December 26, 2015 at 7:48 am

      Yes, St. Nectan’s Glen is in Cornwall, just a bit further up the coast from Tintagel.
      I’m going to try some cake or cupcake baking next, I think!
      Pretty much everything which tastes amazing is bad for us πŸ™‚ Strange how it works out that way.


      • December 27, 2015 at 6:43 pm

        So flippin’ unfair – especially at Christmas! πŸ™‚


  14. December 28, 2015 at 2:18 pm

    I checked out your other St Nectan’s Glen photos. Definitely a place I’d like to visit.
    And then pizza afterwards. Ha.


    • December 29, 2015 at 5:44 pm

      St Nectan’s Glen and then pizza. Sounds good!


      • December 30, 2015 at 10:40 pm

        Okay, as soon as I can get to England, it’s a date. Just, please, don’t hold your breath.
