Share Your World – 2015 – Week#37


Sharing My World This Week

If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be?

  1. First of all to have Hubby home and well again.
  2. To continue to have good health.
  3. To  have a big win on the lottery.

That pretty much covers my needs and wants I think.

What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person?

In the 1980s we visited Uluru (Ayers Rock). That was pretty amazing. I had seen pictures of the rock changing colour at sunset and I have to admit that I was a bit sceptical that it really was that dramatic. I thought it might be a bit of artistic licence in the brochures. However, it really does change colour just like that and it’s incredible to see.

Uluru taken on holiday around the early -mid 1980s. I have cleaned the picture up a bit as there were a few dust spots but the colours are what I saw.

I did climb Uluru. These days more people choose to respect the indigenous people and not make the climb although it is not forbidden. I doubt that I would do it if I were to visit there again even if I were physically capable but I am glad that I did it then.

Is your hair short (total neck and ear showing), medium (covering ears and neck), long (below shoulders) or extra long (at least halfway down your back)?

At the moment my hair is the longest I’ve worn it in several years as it is around shoulder length. My hair is very thick and heavy and normally I prefer to wear it shorter than this especially in hot weather when I may even have it cut to collar length. It is more curly when it is that length too which I like. I find having hair on my face physically uncomfortable. When I was a child I did wear it much longer, almost waist length if it was loose but normally I wore it in a ponytail or a stumpy pig tail.

Taswegian1957

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 WordPress.com 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. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.

  1. Interesting rock and nature! I wish I could see this with my own eyes in real, so much interesting things in the world, but I am lucky that we can at least share the impressions in the web today, that everyone can see, otherwise we would miss so much things 🙂 Also I am glad you like my blog 🙂

    • You are still young Dennis, you never know where you may end up in the future but as you say the web does mean that we can all share our experiences. That’s why I think it’s a brilliant thing for people who can’t travel due to ill health, age or finances as it makes the world a bigger place for them.

      • I saw a lot of places in Europe, although it’s impossible to see everything, but I’ve never been out of Europe… but yea, who knows, maybe I win a vacation trip some day 😀 I do agree pretty much, back then when my disease was still severe, the web helped me a lot and prevented that I would become desperate, really. It’s probably helping a lot of people.
