And so here we are with this week’s Cee’s Share Your World Challenge. Always fun to do!
What’s your favorite charitable cause and why?
If I was just to name one, then the Red Cross as they helped some of my family after WW2. However, I am a sucker for the SPCA, especially the cute cats for adoption on Facebook, and always give a dollar to cancer charities’ collection tins.
What colour do you feel most comfortable wearing?
If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know).
Well, I decided to go with a theme, and since this is a blog, I went for three bloggers (well one is a vlogger to be precise). First, I would go for Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere. Her highly successful blog has also produced two books. It has been interesting to see how it has changed over the years and I would love to ask her about her success and how long she can see herself blogging. Second, I would move to someone local, and that would be Laura Vincent of Hungry and Frozen. She’s a great food blogger, has had a book published, and lives in Wellington. Finally, I would interview Hannah Hart of “My Drunk Kitchen” . I recently heard her in conversation on Ear Biscuits, and would love to have my own conversation with her – she sounds a very interesting woman.
List: What are at least five places you’ve enjoyed visiting?
In no particular order, and I wrote this quickly without thinking too much as otherwise would have had a much longer list:
Porto Santo, near Madeira
And of course…Ohrid, Macedonia
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week,
Lovely weather at the weekend and a chance to get out and about a bit.
Winter, Scorching Bay
…and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
My husband’s birthday is on Saturday and we are having a few friends around.
Finally, if you want something else to read, I can highly recommend It Started in Oxford’s post about the flooding in Tblisi that you might have read about. A first had account from someone who lives there, including how you can help with donations for the relief effort.
