Sharing my world- August 8-9, 2022

Di is our host today for Share your world, while Melanie is away for health reasons. Thank you Di for stepping in at such short notice. Thanks for keeping SYW going!


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

For me, being on holiday means a holiday from house work and cooking. I like to eat out and that’s one on the main attractions of a holiday.

2. Do you have a favourite meal you cook

I have a few special dishes that I cook well and kids like. I’ve shared the recipe of Haleem before. I also like to make daal makhni, bread pudding, apple pie and English trifle.

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

Well since my foot surgery, I am housebound, mainly going out for checkup visits to the hospital and just twice to have a meal with family, I can honestly say that I’m conserving a lot of fuel.

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

I’d like to think I’d be something pleasing but useful. Perhaps an aloe plant which has a lot of healing properties but can produce beautiful flowers too.


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

My childhood memories are a bit fuzzy but I remember one occasion after my mother’s death when we went with our grandparents to a nearby hill resort in Azad Kashmir where the river Jehlum passes before entering Punjab province. It was a serene place and we had very peaceful family time with our father, he was otherwise very busy with his job as the chief secretary of Kashmir.

Ghari Dupatta, is a small town. It is located 20 kilometers away from Muzaffarabad city

I hope that Melanie recovers soon and is hosting this challenge once again. Sending her lots of love and hugs.

    1. Thanks a lot Suzette! The time I’m talking about was more than 50 years ago! It was a very small and quiet place then. This is a pic from internet.


  1. I enjoyed your answers, Sadje–and I still have your recipe for Haleem. I’m so sorry to hear about your foot surgery, and that you are mostly homebound…I hope it will heal quickly and completely (that is my prayer for you). Great choice, the aloe plant! I keep a bottle of the gel in the kitchen, for slight burns!
