Share Your World – May 8, 2017

When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot?

I go barefoot in the slippers at home. I used to walk around barefoot, but it is not longer possible with my walking style. The worst thing I can put on my feet would be anything nylon, I hate nylon stockings.

What was your favorite food when you were a child?

My mum always said it was fish fingers, as if one day I would marry, my poor husband would have to live on fish fingers. They were not my favourites, but one of them. I liked a few things, ice cream, salted peanuts, fish and chips (back to chips).

Are you a listener or talker?

Some Most will say I am a talker, but I also listen now and again.

Favorite thing to (pick one):  Photograph?  Write? Or Cook?

Photography and writing, for me it goes together. I do not mind cooking, but have to be in the mood.


What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Renovation 08.05 (3)

We are still living in a world that is slowly  being demolished under the name of improvement. Everywhere I look for the past month I see styrofoam pieces, bricks, and stone rubble. My home and the block are encased in steel scaffolding. The only one enjoying the fun is my cat Tabby as she now has her own staircase outside and when the workers are gone in the evening, she takes over.

The past week was a rainy week. It is good for the garden, but just now and again I like to take a walk somewhere without an umbrella.

Next week there are a few dentist and doctor appointments, shared by Mr. Swiss and me. It will make a change to go places and see people and enjoy something completely different. The dentist is always good for a surprise.

  1. Mmmm… n chips. I can remember saturday trips to a beach town in southern British Columbia. A real treat was going to to take out window along the sidewalk and across the street fro the beach to get an order of fish n chips. they were served in a cone made of real newspaper. This was back in the 1970’s.

    • I grew up in fish and chip country in East London. When I was a kid they would be in newspaper, but later it was changed for health reasons. There are still “chippies” in East London, but today almost as many Curry takeaways.

  2. I first heard of “fish and chips” as a teenager. A new “fast food” restaurant opened up in town…Arthur Treacher’s Fish N Chips. Served with a malted vinegar. Good lord, I loved those things. One of my earliest jobs was working behind the cash register at that place. I would take home the extra shrimp and fish each night. Better than throwing it out which is what we were supposed to do.

    • Fish and chips were part of life in England. We also used to pur vinegar on the chips but mum always got the non-brewed condiment as she didn’t like the malt variety. The Swiss would never put vinegar on the chips and they eat fish with mayonnaise and boiled potato, although I do it English style with chips.


  3. Nice to meet a fellow Fish Finger lover ( Bird’s Eye preferably or Findus) – and an English Ex-pat too 😉 I used to love fish finger sandwiches! 🙂 ( Still do to be honest).

    • Definitely is but other seem to have a different interpretation of demolishing. Like the phoenix rising from the ashes, the new expensive building will rise from the rubble 🙂
