Sharing My World – Time Travel, Wishes, and TV

Here are this week’s Cee’s questions from the Share Your World Challenge:

If you could go back and visit any time period, what time would you travel to and why?

I’ve been watching too much period British dramas lately that make me think I wouldn’t mind living like a British aristocrat around the 1900s. Though not for everyone, I would certainly enjoy a life of dressing up with beautiful attire every day, having feasts, having country parties and picnics on the lawn, having tea every five minutes, not having to clean, enjoying live music of the time, horseback riding, going out dancing at the city…




If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be? This is a time for you to dream and have fun.

Ok, you said “fun” and “you” so I will be superficial and selfish in these wishes (not how I would think if I knew they would really come true):

1. To win a lifetime chocolate subscription in which I get a different chocolate something (bar, truffle, slice of cake, cookie, chocolate covered fruit…) mailed to me every day.

2. No more back/neck/hip pain ever again. (I’m only 25! Why do I have to suffer from this kind of pain already? And it started years ago)

3. Have a robot servant that will do all of the dishes and any other occasional chore I really don’t want to do. But I really hate doing dishes, and I seem to be doing dishes like 50 times a day.

Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?

Definitely fresh lemonade.

If you watch TV what are your favorite three television shows?

Downton Abbey, Sherlock, and The Amazing Race. If I was a U.S. citizen, my husband and I would apply to go on the Amazing Race.

What are your favorite tv shows?

    I like the idea of wearing all the beautiful dresses and such from past eras, but maybe not corsets. Or in the summer with all those layers..


    1. I didn’t think of the summer. Good point haha. It is a fantasy after all, and in fantasies it’s not hot or cold, I think.


    2. I had a corset for my wedding. It was so tight. Ridiculous. I remember going to the bathroom, ripping it off and i took my Spanx off as well. Let it all hang out lol!


  2. Thanks so much for sharing. Downton Abbey and Selfridges are definitely a favorites of mine too.


  3. I wouldn’t mind spending a few days at a place like Downton Abbey. That would be an interesting time period to experience. I like your first wish. Something new and chocolaty every three days…I could go for that!


    1. Haha.. at first I wrote every 2 days, but then I changed it to every day in case the piece was small, like a truffle.


  4. I’d want to live in a time of protest, of real social change. The 1960s with the civil rights movement, anti-war protests, environmentalism, and rights for women being developed, I think, would be a heck of a time to be around. Tie-dye shirts and flower power: what could go wrong?


  5. I love Downton Abbey. If I could go back in time would I go back to that era? Nope. There is so much to be said for women and women’s rights. Sure during the Downton period there was women’s suffrage movement and Edith is certainly a protagonist for women’s rights. Someone else said it above, definitely the 1960’s. There was so much change, our eyes were open. Vietnam, the era of love, Woodstock.
