Share Your World – 2017 – Week #4

Sharing My World This Week


What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person?

Without  a doubt that would be Uluru (Ayers Rock) in central Australia.

How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order?

I have one sister who is younger than I am.

If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?

I’d be a sneaker, practical and comfortable for many situations.

What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

I don’t really go in for weird food. I have eaten kangaroo meat, it is sold in butchers here and is supposed to be good to eat because it is lean. It tastes OK too. Once on a trip to Bruny Island we stopped at a shop that sold unusual pies made with wallaby or emu meat and some others that I don’t remember now.  I can’t remember which I had, it might have been the emu as I thought that wallaby would be not unlike kangaroo. I can’t even remember what it tasted like. It probably tasted like chicken :-).

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

I am grateful for good friends and the opportunity to go road tripping with them last weekend. We went to a cricket match in Launceston and the next day I got to visit a part of Tasmania I have not seen before.

This week I am getting new carpet in the spare bedroom and will hopefully be arranging for my windows to be repaired so that I can open them and for the house to be repainted at last.

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.
