Tuesday Share [syw]

Share your world SYW

Di @ Pensitivity101 has taken the reins this week as Melanie is under the weather. Get well soon, M! Thank you Di for stepping up to bring us this week’s Share Your World.

1. When you’re on holiday, do you prefer self catering or a hotel/B&B?

I always would choose a hotel or B&B over any type of “roughing it” situation. (Not that I have the funds for serious travel and do not anticipate doing much.) I never have been camping and never will. That said, I do not love to eat every meal in a restaurant, so a place with kitchen facilities is ideal. I find it more relaxing to have a quiet breakfast alone in my room before getting on with the day’s activities.

2. Do you have a favourite meal you cook for yourself or order when out?

Not really. At home, I mostly nosh rather than preparing an official meal for just one person. Sometimes I get fancy and make an omelette. Generally, I order salads when in a restaurant and my favorite is a steak salad. I’m also partial to Thai noodle dishes.

3. In the current fuel crisis, have you made a conscious effort not to use the car unless absolutely necessary?

I drive to work on weekdays, which is a necessity, though I have a short commute. Otherwise, I have been cutting back a bit, not so much avoiding using the car, but rather trying to combine errands in a more efficient manner. Thing is, I wasn’t driving much to begin with, especially since Covid.

4. If you were to compare yourself to a plant, what would you be?

Idk, a crabapple tree?

5. I am lucky to have a lot of happy memories from my childhood. Please share one from yours.

I loved the time we visited relatives in Ohio and I got to play with a lap full of kittens.

  1. Thanks for joining in Paula. You lap full of kittens reminds me of when we found Maggie, or rather she chose us. I was surrounded by 10 black and white puppies, 7 bitches and 3 dogs. One dog was spoken for, but I had the choice of the rest. One got on my lap and fell asleep, twice, so we brought her home. A happy day, March 11th 2005.

  4. My uncle had a farm in Mantua, which is close to Akron, and of course Dad and his siblings were born in Cincinnati. Where did you visit?

  5. Hi – the kittens memory is fun!
    And you a crabapple tree?
    That is not how I see you – rather let’s make it a Granny Smith – because a crab apple tree doesn’t seem to have the edible fruits that your meaty posts and keen perspective you also share – or maybe you would even be a red delicious variety
