Share Your World – 2016 – Week#36

Sharing My World This Week

If you were given a boat or yacht today, what would you name it?  (You can always sell the yacht later)

I’ve seen some very clever and amusing names for boats on my walks around various harbours. Unfortunately I can’t remember any of them right now. I think I would call my yacht “Rainbow’s End”.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best?  (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be? 

It depends; Sneezy would work as I’m prone to bouts of sneezing. These days it could also be Grumpy for the number of things that are not to my liking (TV shows, people’s manners, things that are not like they used to be and of course the government.)

The 8th dwarf could be a high-tech dwarf called Geeky.

Name a song or two which are included on the soundtrack to your life?

When David and I would set off on a driving trip we would often play “Road to Nowhere” by Talking Heads. We enjoyed road trips and we sometimes enjoyed going for a drive in a general direction but with no set plans for what we would do. Also it’s great driving music.

Another one I would pick is “Telephone Booth” by Ian Moss. It’s one of my favourite songs and hearing it always gives me a sense of well-being although I can’t really explain why.

Complete this sentence:  I like watching…

  • Cindy and Polly playing with each other, it always makes me smile.
  • Birds in my garden.
  • Cricket at Bellerive on a summer evening

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Last week I didn’t do anything out of the ordinary but it was nice to have a quiet week. A nice customer at the Op Shop gave me three dolls that she no longer wanted. I have written about them on my doll blog.

I was given these dolls last week.

My daffodils are all flowering now. The jonquils are nearly finished, the King Alfred’s were looking very nice but took a battering from the strong winds today and the last ones, the Erlicheers are just coming through. Some of my other bulbs are also starting to flower and I’ve been eagerly watching the trees for signs on new leaves on the Japanese and Weeping Maples and the Gleditsia. I hope I will be seeing some in the coming 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.
