Today’s photo is not mine as I have never been to Australia’s greatest motor racing event the Bathurst 1,000 km race.  However, I’ve seen it on television many times. David loved to watch Bathurst every year and although I did not always spend the whole day watching it with him we always watched the start together even last year when he was in hospital. We had a lot of fun watching motor sports together over the years so it seemed only natural to tune in again today.

Born in England in 1957 my 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. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
