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. 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. It’s really a beautiful view. The mountain view is similar to the view I have everyday, just missing the body of water.


      • In Hamburg we have one in similar size called “K√∂hlbrand Bridge”, but you are right, there are bridges in the world that are much bigger. At least in Norther Germany, I believe there is this trend to rather build tunnels than bridges,… they did for example start to build a 18 km (11 mi) long tunnel under the Baltic Sea to connect the German island Fehmarn with the Danish island Lolland, but it’s said it will take until 2024 to be finished, I assume it might take longer but I don’t know.
