Sunday Stills – Pets

Our pets, Cindy, Polly and Jake who is no longer with us.


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. It’s sad that Jake is not with you anymore. Polly is so cute, but as a Tuxedo owner myself as you know, I am probably biased. 🙂 I love the photo where Polly sleeps near Cindy. It’s so cool that it works with your dog and cat 🙂


      • I can imagine that. We lost a dog when I was teenager and I did spend over a decade together with this dog. I was teenager, I think one year before majority, when our dog went to dog heaven. I cried days and felt bad months, it was very hard. Because for us pet owner, pets are more than just pets, they become familiy members. It’s a long time ago and I am of course not sad about it anymore because that’s life, however, even after so many years I remind of her at times. Fortunately, good memories stay.
