Share Your World: 8 May 2017

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

Never shoes indoors, I find them too uncomfortable, but other than that it depends on how cold it is at any given time – so in the winter usually slippers, in the summer generally barefoot, and through spring and autumn most likely socks 🙂

What was your favourite food when you were a child?

I don’t really remember a favourite food as a child – but I know I loved the mobile baker’s van that came round every Saturday morning in our rural farming community. The buttery-yeasty-sweet smell of baker-fresh bread and pastries and cakes is all blended in my memory with the wood-smell of the paper-lined trays displayed at an enticing angle in purpose-built racks on each side of the central galley-way within the van, coupled with the smell of the grease-dotted crisp paper bags filled with goodies we clutched in delight after each making our individual purchase 🙂

Are you a listener or a talker?

I was a very shy child and so used to be mainly a listener, but studying for my degree in my late thirties taught me to speak up and speak out about topics I feel passionate about, so now in my fifties I’d say I’m probably a bit of both – but even when I do have something to say I’ll usually listen to others first.

Favourite thing to (pick one) photograph, write, or cook?

I love all three, so for me I’d choose:

Photographing – landscapes

Writing – poetry – haiku, limericks, sonnets

Cooking – do I have to choose one thing? Hearty stews and big family meals in huge pots…
