Share Your World – 2015 -Week #41

Sharing My World This Week

What genre of music do you like?
My favourite genre is rock music. I enjoy the music of the 60s, 70s and 80s and a little of the early 90s. After that I would say, as my mother used to “That’s not what I call music.” Pop, lighter than rock can be fun but not to be taken too seriously.
I also enjoy some jazz and blues, brass bands, bagpipes, a little classical music but not opera and definitely not country music.

What is the worst thing you ate this last week?
I can’t think of anything really bad I ate this last week. I burnt my toast one day but it was still edible. Sometimes when I visit Hubby at lunch time I’m offered a spare meal but I always say “No thank you.” I’ve seen the food they serve in that hospital and some of it looks disgusting.

Would you like to be famous? In what way?
I would not. Not in any way whatsoever. I like being anonymous.

Complete this sentence: This sandwich could really use some …
Fresher bread.” –It’s a hospital sandwich.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I had a nice weekend. On Saturday my sister came to visit. We had lunch and chatted about our holiday plans.
On Sunday I visited Hubby in the morning and we watched the start of the Bathurst 1000 on television. That’s a car race for those of you not from Australia. Hubby loves to watch it every year and it was nice to see him with his “TV face” on, the one he has when he’s totally wrapped up in something. Bathurst goes on all day but I left him at lunchtime and went to the Botanical Gardens to take some photos. It had been a chilly morning but it was a beautiful afternoon. I had a nice walk to the Botanical Gardens via the Soldiers Walk and got a shuttle bus part the way back then walked from the Cenotaph to the CBD.
This week I’m going to a Creative Memories product launch in Hobart with a friend and possibly on a boat trip on the Huon. The garden guys are coming back to do a bit more work too so it should be a good week.

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. I enjoy bagpipes too. The photo of the botanical gardens looks lovely. I chuckled when I read your answer about the sandwich, because I answered in the same way.
