Sharing My World 2016 Week 36

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World. Week 36 already! Hello, September.


List 2 things you have to be happy about.
Netflix. PS4. What? I’m shallow, me. You wanted something deeper? Friends and family. There you go πŸ™‚

If you could take a photograph, paint a picture or write a story of any place in the world, what and where would it be?
I’d love to visit New Zealand. Not just for the Hobbitses, though that’s a big reason! But New Zealand looks like such a lovely place. Shame it’s a bazillion miles away.

Should children be seen and not heard?
Absolutely! In fact, let’s not see them either.

Oooonly joking!

Children need to express themselves so they can grow. However, there also needs to be some discipline. I was recently in a restaurant where the parents let their toddler run around screaming the whole time.

It must be difficult for parents to find the right balance.

List at least five of your favourite first names.

  • Blade
  • Skylark
  • Wishbone
  • Ranger
  • Butterbean
  • Rainbow

I can’t wait to have kids, they’ll love me forever, on accountΒ of their awesome names.

    Wishbone and Butterbean, Ali…? Ha ha. What do you watch on Netflix?


    • September 4, 2016 at 5:20 pm

      I watch everything!
      I’ve just finished Gotham (I keep missing it on Ch5) and Archer and am about 2/3 of the way through How I Met Your Mother. Loads more on the watchlist, but I’ve temporarily defected to Amazon as Walking Dead Series 5 and Arrow Series 3 are now free πŸ™‚

    “This is my son, Butterbean Ranger.” πŸ™‚


    • September 4, 2016 at 5:20 pm

      Yeah, pretty awesome, right? πŸ™‚


  3. September 4, 2016 at 1:45 pm

    You are brilliant, sir. Giving a child any one of those names will assure they are never seen or heard! They will run away from home and join the circus instead…


  4. September 4, 2016 at 1:46 pm

    Hahahaha nice namesπŸ˜€πŸ˜‚


  5. September 4, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    If you have children some day and give any of them those names listed about, you’ll be in their thoughts alright, but not in a way you’d choose. I take it for granted you’re kidding, right? Tell me you are–please. Hilarious, Ali. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne


    • September 4, 2016 at 5:21 pm

      I reckon they’d love these names which I have meticulously picked out.
      Yes, I’m kidding πŸ™‚


  6. September 4, 2016 at 2:54 pm

    Hahahaha! Poor kid to be named Butterbean! LOL!


    • September 4, 2016 at 5:22 pm

      Butterbean Skylark III.
      Has a certain ring to it, don’t you think?


  7. September 4, 2016 at 3:51 pm

    Be prepared to pay for extensive expensive therapy if you name your children Butterbean or Wishbone! LOL πŸ™‚


    • September 4, 2016 at 5:22 pm

      Aw, there’s always a downside… πŸ™‚


  8. September 4, 2016 at 7:20 pm

    Thanks for the mention about New Zealand, it is a beautiful place to take photos, sorry we are so far away from you, never mind you may make it one day. Nice post.


  9. September 4, 2016 at 9:05 pm

    Is it just me or is skylark not a cool name?


  10. September 4, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    I’m surprised you missed a boy named Sue! I think we should go with furniture names. I’m thinking Gateleg, or maybe Foldingchair.


    • September 5, 2016 at 7:59 am

      Maybe something double-barrelled like Randolph Fitted-Kitchen.


  11. September 4, 2016 at 11:11 pm

    Butterbean? lol


    • September 5, 2016 at 8:00 am

      That’s actually one I got off a web page for unusual names which have actually been registered over the last couple of years! Poor Butterbean, he/she’s out there somewhere 😦

    Kids hate restaurants after approximately10 minutes. Soooo after 10 minutes, time to take little Butterbean home.

    Good posts, beautiful blog.
    Welcome to see my creations:paintdigi.wordpress.com


    • September 5, 2016 at 3:47 pm

      Just had a look. Some of those would look great on my wall!


  14. September 6, 2016 at 1:34 am

    Butterbean…well, I guess celebrities have named their kids stranger things than that!


    • September 6, 2016 at 7:23 am

      Yes, “Butterbean” is actually quite tame πŸ™‚


  15. September 6, 2016 at 1:02 pm

    I’m sure your kids will love you for those names!

    Butterbean sounds downright US-Southern! πŸ™‚


    • September 6, 2016 at 3:12 pm

      And it works for a boy or a girl!


  17. September 7, 2016 at 2:51 am

    These names are ok to compare with the products of some other parents’ imagination.
    I just thought about that restaurant scene. A kid running around, and his dad shouting his name that happened to be one of your list. It would have made my day πŸ™‚


    • September 7, 2016 at 7:26 am

      Ha, yes! “Wishbone, Blade! Come back here right now!”

    Great answers, Draliman. We like the name Rainbow, makes me feel colourful πŸ˜€ Pawkisses for a Colourful Day πŸ™‚ ❀


  19. September 9, 2016 at 5:52 pm

    New Zealand is also on the top of my list of places to visit.
    Butterbean, Wishbone and Rainbow are great names…for dogs!


    • September 10, 2016 at 4:37 am

      Lots of people would like to visit New Zealand, it looks so lovely! I wonder how many make it, it’s so far away from most people.
      Hey, are you dissing my excellent kiddie names? πŸ™‚

        If I move to South or Southeast Asia one day (not far-fetched), I will no longer be so far away from New Zealand. πŸ™‚
        I am looking out for your future kiddies by strongly suggesting against these names. πŸ˜€


        • September 10, 2016 at 4:48 am

          Fortunately for kids I’m getting too old now for the patter of tiny Butterbeans πŸ™‚
          Ooh, there could be Hobbiton-visiting in your future!

            I was going to write something about siring children and old age, but decided not to write it after all. πŸ˜‰


  20. October 2, 2016 at 11:39 pm

    Love the names… but I suspect the wifey will overrule you!

    I live in New Zealand !!!!! Do people think it’s like a little island Ahahah I feel like I’m far away from everything lol


    • December 21, 2016 at 11:54 am

      I think of it as as two little islands πŸ™‚
      It is a very long way from the UK, though.
