We haven’t had a gratuitous cat photo for a while so today’s picture is of Polly relaxing on my bed. She has started doing this a lot lately and especially likes this beige throw which I sometimes wrap round my shoulders if I am reading in bed. If I go into the room and find her there she will generally purr and roll over for a tummy rub.


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.


    • A funny thing happened this evening. I went to the bedroom and found Polly lying in the same spot. She saw me and rolled over for a tummy rub but she was so close to the edge of the bed she nearly rolled right off. I grabbed the doona cover so it would not slip and she dug her claws in and the embarrassment was averted. 🙂
