Share Your World 2017 – Week #10

Sharing My World This Week


Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

No I don’t do that but I have been guilty of pushing the “Walk” sign more than once at street crossings.

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

Mostly I plan things out, especially if I’m visiting somewhere new. I have usually done my homework and know what I want to see. However, I do like to leave some time to be sidetracked and I don’t consider my plans laid in concrete. I remember five years ago when Naomi and I and went to Sydney for a holiday. We had our first afternoon planned out but as we reached Circular Quay on the train we saw a cruise ship berthed nearby. It looked so beautiful that without a word we abandoned our plans and went for a long walk past the cruise terminal to take photos of it and ended up getting ice cream from a van near the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Just as much fun as our original planned walk.

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.

Optimistic, Caring, Curious, Thoughtful

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert? 

  1. Ocean Cruise of course.
  2. Saltwater Beach/ Fresh water lake – I love to be by the water but I’m not a lover of roasting on hot sand. Nor do I fish.
  3. Ski resort – I’d enjoy taking photos but don’t make me ski
  4. Desert – The desert can be beautiful but most of the time it’s too darn hot.
  5. Hot tub – if I’m feeling lazy.

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

    Last week was an unusual one for me. I went out not once but twice in the evening. The first outing was to an International Women’s Day dinner with some of the Op Shop volunteers. I actually won a door prize, a digital photo frame. The second was with my friend Michelle to see “Lion”. We also had a nice meal at the cafe at the cinema.  This week is going to be a very busy one as our Op Shop will be having a stall at a fundraiser for a local family who lost their wife and mother recently. We have had extra donations to sort out, gift packs to make and we also had to find 100 cups and saucers for Rotary to use to serve High Tea and other things to use for raffle prizes. I’ll be there most days this week but I don’t mind because I love the way our community comes together to support  each other.


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. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.


  1. I forgot about the “Walk” buttons. Those I do press a lot too. I wonder what the difference is. Maybe no visual like on an elevator it at least has arrows up or down. 😀
