Sharing My World 2016 Week 29

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World. It didn’t occur to me that we’re over half way through the year until I saw the week number!


What is the perfect pizza?
I don’t eat out much so I’m going with mine! Now, this isn’t the perfect pizza. It started out like this:

Evil Dr. Zog's hidden volcano lair.

Evil Dr. Zog’s hidden volcano lair.

And ended up like this:



It was my first attempt and was too thick and had too much topping. I have since refined the process – last night’s was just right! As long as there is cheese, pepperoni and chorizo, that’s the main thing πŸ™‚

What is your favourite time of day?
I’m most awake in the mornings, but I don’t really have a favourite time of day. It also depends on the day. Weekday? Weekend? Late afternoon on a weekend is great, but not on a weekday. I really start to flag around 3pm at work 😦

Show us two of your favourite photographs. Β The photos can be from anytime in your life span. Β Explain why they are your favourite.
There are some lovely photos of me with my (still a) toddler godson, and those are ones I look back on fondly. However, I haven’t asked his parents for permission to put them public, so here are couple of my favourite scenes.

St Nectan's Glen, Cornwall

On the way to St. Nectan’s Glen, Cornwall

Complete this sentence: Β I’m looking forward to…
… nothing really. I just take life as it comes, day by day. I like it better that way.

    I love those photos.
    Was looking forward to seeing your godson, perhaps next time.

    Pizza looks good! The photos are beautiful!


    • July 24, 2016 at 4:31 pm

      It was good, if a little over-topped πŸ™‚


      • July 24, 2016 at 4:33 pm

        I couldn’t figure out how picture #1 became picture #2. LOL! You are a magician!


        • July 24, 2016 at 5:03 pm

          Lots of mixing and kneading and whatnot πŸ™‚


          • July 24, 2016 at 10:14 pm

            LOL! I would think it would take a lot of mixing and kneading!


            • July 25, 2016 at 7:14 am

              A lot more than I can be bothered with, according to the instructions. It doesn’t seem to make any difference though πŸ™‚

    The photos are beautiful.


    • July 24, 2016 at 4:32 pm

      It’s a lovely place and also the walk to it.


  4. July 24, 2016 at 4:20 pm

    Your photos and pizza look wonderful. πŸ˜€


    • July 24, 2016 at 4:32 pm

      A lovely location and a lovely pizza πŸ™‚


  5. July 24, 2016 at 7:16 pm

    I am impressed at your making real pizza from ingredients. Chorizo. Good topping idea. Of course, any kind of sausage is a winner for pizza, right?

    Cornwall is such a magical place. When we were there, I kept expecting to me Arthur around every corner.


    • July 25, 2016 at 7:14 am

      It’s a shame you didn’t bump into him. I hear he makes a mean pizza!


  6. July 25, 2016 at 2:18 am

    Is that second picture really pizza, or an eruption from Evil Dr. Zog’s hidden volcano lair?

    Mmmmm lava…..:-D

    St Nectan’s Glen looks like a lovely place – I’m not surprised those are your favourite scenes. πŸ™‚ The pizza looks delicious.


  9. July 25, 2016 at 5:12 pm

    The pizza looks good! I’ve never tried making my own pizza crust. I’m not really good with any kind of dough. I am now adding St. Nectan’s Glen to the list of places I want to visit. It looks very peaceful!


    • July 26, 2016 at 7:31 am

      Give it a go! All you do is mix it together and knead it a bit (i.e. until you get bored).
      St Nectan’s Glen is very peaceful. A bit of a pain to get to, though!

    Good posts, nice blog …
    I invite you to see my creations:


    • July 28, 2016 at 7:13 am

      Thanks! I had a look a couple of days ago – nice! I missed your comment as it went into my spam (sorry about that), I think because you included the link to your blog. But I found it in the end!

    Lovely pictures πŸ™‚
    Do remember to share your godson’s pics too.. Or ask for permission that is 😜
    Happy blogging!


    • July 27, 2016 at 1:32 pm

      I do need to remember to ask his mum πŸ™‚


  12. July 27, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    I’ve seen some of your other pictures as well There are beautiful places in Cornwall. You seem to have the pizza making down to a fine art. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne


    • July 27, 2016 at 1:33 pm

      My pizzas will soon be world-famous πŸ™‚
      Cornwall has some very beautiful places to visit.


  13. July 28, 2016 at 10:28 am

    I’m laffin, cuz I remember your pizza pictures…

    Yes 😦 we have wonderful pics of the little toddlers we watch but we can’t post them here. I know how you feel…it’s not our place to do so.

    I’ll be back shortly, but posting sometimes.



    • July 28, 2016 at 3:06 pm

      I know I’d be livid if I had kids and someone posted pictures of them on a public website.
      My pizzas have been greatly refined since my first attempt (though the dough-making process remains unchanged!).


  14. July 29, 2016 at 9:36 pm

    I think this calls for a post on how you made that pizza, it looks great!


  15. July 30, 2016 at 10:45 am

    I remember your post about making that pizza. Have you made any others since? As for the photos of St Nectan’s Glen, they’re really lovely – like so many places in your beautiful Cornwall. πŸ™‚


    • July 30, 2016 at 4:43 pm

      I make a pizza every Saturday evening! I make loads of dough and then freeze some πŸ™‚
      St. Nectan’s Glen is a lovely spot.


      • July 31, 2016 at 8:17 pm

        You’ll have to open your own ‘Pizza Parlour’ as a sideline. I’m sure you’d manage a great Italian accent. πŸ™‚


  16. August 30, 2016 at 10:37 am

    I had to look up ‘chorizo’… Is this a spicy sausage? Or since you don’t know what people in the states have as a taste for sausage???? We have three types. The spicy spectrum is the main difference…..


    • August 30, 2016 at 7:27 pm

      Yes, it’s a Spanish spicy sausage. Very tasty once cooked and placed atop a pizza!
