Share Your World – 2014 – Week 48

Sharing My World This Week

What is your favorite toppings on pizza?

I don’t really care for fancy toppings, capsicum, mushrooms, ham and cheese. No olives or anchovies thanks. I remember once hearing a guy where I worked say that he didn’t like cheese on pizza. How can you have pizza without cheese?

I want to learn more about …

Right now I want to learn to crochet, I’ve never been able to master it. I’d also like to learn Photoshop or some similar editing program. I’d love to be able to create backgrounds for my doll photos as well as improving my own photos more and rescuing old family photos that are becoming fragile. I like history too. It’s interesting to learn more about how people lived in “the olden days”.

What are three places you’ve enjoyed visiting?

Only three? Well I’ll cheat a bit and say that I enjoyed visiting the United Kingdom that way I can have England, Scotland and Wales. I loved Yorkshire, London of course and I’ve posted about my love of Scotland.  I didn’t actually see a lot of Wales but we did get to visit two preserved railways Ffestiniog and the Tallylyn.  I loved my recent visit to Melbourne and I loved visiting Tasmania so much that I came here to live.

Do you prefer eating the frosting of the cake or the cupcake first?

Neither. I try to eat both at the same time.

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

This is a hard one to answer this week. Hubby hasn’t been well and had to visit the hospital so I’m grateful things were not worse than they were and I’m looking forward to things getting back to normal as soon as possible.


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.


  1. Pizza? I eat a lot of pizza! In fact I did it today too! I put everything on my pizza but not fish or anything from the ocean 😀 Pizza without cheese? He must be funny 🙂

    For photo editing I really can suggest YouTube. There are a lot of interestint tutorials or so called “how to’s” where people introduce you to certain techniques. You find a lot of useful tutorials for different programs there. You remind me that I should write new tutorials too some day. I have a few on my site but I learned new things and I should share more of these informations. I am sometimes too lazy to create more complex articles but I really should start to do so.

    I follow another blogger, she is photographer from Melbourne and she shared photos of that place too. Looks very iteresting to me. Too sad that it’s so far away.
