Share your world: Week 16

I’ve not been a good blogger lately, and I’ve missed a lot of the Share Your World questions because of it. Time to start again…

How many places have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.

Four cities, and lots of residences. Most recently, I’ve moved five times in five years. I think I need to stay put for a while!

What type of music relaxes you the most?

Blues and jazz, great to cook to.

If you could instantly become fluent in another language, what would that language be and why?

Bulgarian, but as that’s never really going to happen I won’t hold my breath!

If you could fly or breathe under water what would you prefer?

Fly. It must be great to be able to soar over hills and mountains.

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

I’m grateful that my migraine has finally come to an end after 4 very long days and I’m looking forward to catching up on all the chocolate I missed because of it :-)

 

Share Your World: Week 10

Share Your World consists of weekly questions hosted by Cee on her photography blog.

Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name.

Absent-minded (okay that’s probably two, but it sums me up perfectly).

If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?

I’ve discovered most friends my age brag about what they have but that doesn’t make their lives satisfying so if I expand that to my age group (under 20′,s haha!) I’d guess at 15%, but in all honesty I really don’t have a clue!

If you were a tree, would you become a book or furniture? Please describe.

An inspirational book or a cold frame, either way I’d be extremely useful.

You are trapped in an elevator, who would you want to be trapped with?

Benedict Cumberbatch. Or Lennie James. Or Peter Kay. Or Monty Don. Or Nigel Slater. Or….

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

I’m grateful for the free cream cakes given to us by a lady in the next village. I’m looking forward to some sunshine – please?!

My new greenhouse

Okay, not a new greenhouse but the best I can muster in the circumstances! The weather has turned really dreary in our neck of the woods, so in the absence of sunshine and warmth (and a greenhouse) I’ve decided to break with tradition and bring the seeds into the house to give them a head start.

Make-shift greenhouse

Most Bulgarians start their seeds off just after Christmas, every windowsill and any other available spaces in the room with the wood burner are crammed with pots. I’m not a huge fan of this, firstly because I have four dogs racing around the house and secondly because I’ve enough rubbish in the house without adding to it!

But needs must this year so I’m going to have put up with it. Bessie isn’t impressed either, she can’t get at the window to bark at the birds and rub her wet nose up and down it until she makes a yucky mess.

Even the coffee table hasn’t escaped.

Hopefully it will warm up very soon and I won’t need to fret each time Bessie swings her tail as she saunters by!

The good news is, it’s working – some of the tomatoes have already made an appearance. Hoorah!

Bring on the spring weather!

Share your world: Week 9

Share Your World consists of weekly questions hosted by Cee on her photography blog.

Would you prefer a reading nook or an art, craft, photography studio?

Reading nook, definitely.

Would you prefer the TV in the living room or another room?

We have a TV in the living room and the cosy room (a little portable). I use the cosy room to write so it’s rarely on. I really can’t write or read with a TV blaring in the background.

What color would you like your bedroom to be?

Lemon. Our bedroom in the UK was lemon and when we finally get around to redecorating, our bedroom here will be lemon too. It’s a lovely fresh colour.

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?

One floor. Our current home is one floor but we have utilised the basement room by turning it into the kitchen.That will all change when we complete the extension – 14 steps are a lot of steps to keep running up and down when you’re carrying food and condiments!

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

I’m grateful we didn’t get any more snow and I’m looking forward to the weather warming up next week so I can get some gardening done.
