Sharing My World 2016 Week 12

It’s time again to Share My World, courtesy of Cee. Thanks for the questions, Cee!


Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?
Definitely something cold and fizzy. If it’s not (preferably ice) cold, it doesn’t work. I generally go for something with a good bite to it, like Diet Coke. I also always have a stock of diet lemonade in.

Lemonade and Coke

Mmmm. Nearly no calories of tasty refreshment.

What made you feel good this past week?
Hmm, same old same old really. I did go to a great gig in the village hall on Friday. It was a guy with an acoustic guitar and a guy with a violin playing Irish, Cornish and Scottish music. The organiser is one of my best friends (and mother of my godson) and she supplied me with home-made brownies and cupcakes throughout (I got extras after I agreed to babysit tomorrow evening). I also won a big heavy wooden cheeseboard in the raffle!

When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot?
I have quite thick soft carpets so just socks generally (whether I’m alone or not). If I spend significant time in the kitchen when I’m making pizza dough or preparing a big vat of chilli I wear an aged pair of slippers, as the floor in there is wood.

Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?
Tricky – I don’t do well in extremes of temperature. Of course one gets used to a certain temperature after a while. A couple of days last week were over 10C which I found quite warm, whereas if we get 15C in mid-summer I find it freezing!

Although I like snuggling up in the cold weather, it gets old after a while (and my electric/gas bill during the winter is many times that in the summer), so I’m going to go with (drum roll….) always hot!

    There was a “lot” of talk about food, there, Ali. I haven’t had lunch yet and it made me hungry. Wow, brownies, cupcakes, pizza, and chilli. In fact, I’m having left-over pizza for lunch. Happy Easter to you and yours! πŸ™‚ — Suzanne

      Mmm, left-over pizza πŸ™‚ Unfortunately I ate my whole pizza yesterday for tea. Happy Easter!

    Friday night sounds like a god time. Glad you had fun.

    I just don’t understand how something with no calories can be any good!


    • March 27, 2016 at 7:25 pm

      Give it a try, Squirrel!
      I used to drink sugary drinks but after years of sugar-free I find the standard ones far too sweet now…


      • March 28, 2016 at 1:31 am

        I’ve tried diet colas on several occasions… even Diet Sprite once. All I can say is if I ever end up diabetic, I’ll just drink myself into a sugary grave!


        • March 28, 2016 at 8:12 am

          Ooh noo 😦
          They’re about to bring in an extra tax on sugary drinks here so I’m glad I’m already drinking the sugar-free ones!

    I’m glad you did have fun this week. Thanks for sharing. πŸ˜€


    • March 27, 2016 at 7:26 pm

      Yes, it was a fun night, thanks πŸ™‚

    That sounds like a fun gig to go to! Soft fuzzy carpets definitely call for BAREFEET! LOL!


    • March 27, 2016 at 7:27 pm

      It was!
      It’s a little too chilly at the moment for bare feet, even with soft furry carpets πŸ™‚

    πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ It’s always fun to read about your real world. So much different from your dark, twisted tales. Hehe.

    Hmm.. I live in a tropical country so the weather’s fine most of the times but I wouldn’t mind to get a taste of the snow once in a while. We never have it here. πŸ˜€


    • March 28, 2016 at 7:48 am

      It’s a good thing my real world isn’t the same s my fictional ones πŸ™‚
      Just a taste of snow is fine but it’s not so much fun when you have to drive in it!

        Imagine how dark (or humorous) that would be if it should happen in real life. πŸ™‚
        Ha! A little snow would suffice.


        • March 28, 2016 at 11:06 am

          Just a teensy bit of snow. Which miraculously disappears when it’s time to drive to work πŸ™‚

    I would like to live in a more temperate climate, but I have yet to convince Mom Nature to calm down and stop doing all that weather stuff. So far, she has been every bit as responsive as WordPress.


    • March 28, 2016 at 8:10 am

      In that case you’ll likely never get an answer out of Her 😦


  8. March 28, 2016 at 5:15 am

    I think I’d go with somewhere cold all the time. I hate the heat!


    • March 28, 2016 at 8:13 am

      I have trouble sleeping in the heat but I really don’t like being cold.

    I don’t like being too hot or too cold either, it’s a tough question that one! Congratulations on winning the cheeseboard πŸ˜‰


    • March 28, 2016 at 9:58 pm

      Most people prefer a temperate climate, I think.
      It’s a cool cheeseboard. And very big!

    The Friday night gig sounds great and I’m glad you enjoyed it. I imagine the music was fantastic. I think many British people don’t like extremes of temperature, probably because we get them so rarely. When we do, we spend all out time moaning about it. πŸ™‚


    • March 29, 2016 at 7:08 am

      What would we do if we didn’t have the weather to moan about? It’s our “thing” πŸ™‚

    We see you were spoiled, Draliman..brownies, yummie… πŸ˜€ Thank you for your Easter wishes, while we were gulped down by the introooders. Hope you had a wonderful time as well:) Double Pawkiss:)❀


    • March 31, 2016 at 2:48 pm

      Yeah, yummy brownies πŸ™‚ I had a lovely Easter, thanks!
