Have you ever been in a submarine?  If you haven’t, would you want to?

I have been on a submarine. It was when I was a teenager and there was one visiting Port Adelaide, not far from where I lived. I wanted to see what it was like but I found that climbing up and down ladders was too scary for me. I’ve avoided them since then.

Are you a listener or talker?

Good question. I think it depends on who I’m with. In a large group I don’t say much unless I know a lot of the people well but otherwise I guess I talk as much as the next person.

Do you prefer crunchy peanut butter or smooth peanut butter?   Anything with your peanut butter?

I like smooth and I don’t usually have it with anything. You don’t really need butter or margarine on bread with peanut butter but you will need something to stop it sticking to the roof of your mouth.

Have you ever been drunk?

I’ve never been dead drunk. I don’t like spirits so I only drink wine, cider or beer usually. I know I have been light-headed and probably tipsy but I don’t really drink much or often. I would not like to be so drunk that I didn’t know what I was doing. I like to be in control of myself._DSC3219_155web (2)

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

I ended the past week with a visit to my sister where as usual we talked a lot, laughed a lot and sat up way too late. I don’t know what this week will have in store for me but I hope there will be a trip to the “big shops”, a doll dressing session with photos for my doll blog, visits from more wild birds to our garden and possibly the sight of the first jonquils as we have some that look ready to flower any time.



I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
