Sharing My World 2017 Week 5

February 5, 2017 37 comments

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World series.


What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person?
Ooh, too much to choose from! I’ll just state “Cornwall” (I have’t been around many places).

Tintagel 16





How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order?
I’m the older of two brothers.

If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?
I don’t want to be a shoe, to be trodden on all day. But if I had to be I’d be something comfortable. A pair of those fluffy slippers which look like bunny rabbits.

What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten?
I’m not at all adventurous when it comes to food. In Cornwall we’re all about pasties and fish and chips. I do eat very spicy stuff, but not exotically spicy, just spicy sauces on normal food.


I did go out on a limb once and tried calamari. Didn’t like it.

Sharing My World 2016 Week 45

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World. How did it get to be week 45? I’m not ready to start thinking about Christmas. Not ready, I say.


Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. (NOTE:  does not  have to be a sentence.)
Just take it day by day.

Where do you like to vacation?
I just stick around here.

Candy factories (sweets or treats including chocolate) of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?
I really like anything with a chocolate outside and some kind of squishy inside, like praline or whatever, so I’ve decided to team up with Dawn over at The Day After (Lingering Visions) and have a Lindt truffle factory. We only need one more vote to make it happen. It’s the law! Who’s with us?

Complete this sentence: Something that anyone can do that will guarantee my smile is… 
Smile at me. It would be rude not to smile back. And it’s nice to be smiled at.

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 🙂

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.  The photos can be from anytime in your life span.  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.

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

Here are the promised photos I took on my trip to St Nectan’s Glen. It’s not that far away, but the roads got smaller and smaller and there were lots of tractors, so it took a good while to get there.

First there was a pleasant walk along a little road.
