Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Red and Yellow

Red and Yellow

My first thoughts for this challenge were things that were fire engine red and golden yellow. What do I have in those colours? I love red, it’s my favourite colour but what red things are around the house?

I went outside. There is my red, red rose.

I also found Teen Skipper’s friend Nikki. Well OK I had to take her outside myself but she does have a red and yellow outfit. These are the colours I was thinking of in the first place.

I loved the colourful clothing and the fans


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. 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.
