(Unofficial)Share Your World – 4 April 2017


I like doing the Share Your World questions every week so I’m happy to join in with this unofficial version by The Spectacled Bean.

  1. What is your favourite word?

I don’t really have one. Every now and again I’ll hear a word I like and it becomes part of my conversation and it is incorporated into my personal vocabulary for example “oxymoron” (See Question 7).

  1. What is your least favourite word?

I don’t like the f-word when it is used continually, nor do I like the c-word. I never use that one.

  1. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?

Colours. I love seeing beautiful, bright colours in nature, flowers, grass, trees, the sea and the sky. I love the colours of textiles too. A walk through Spotlight always makes me want to make something even if the urge doesn’t last long.

I love the colours in nature.
  1. What turns you off?

Modern decor; especially old houses that have been renovated and everything has been painted grey. I like neutrals on walls or floors but that is just depressing. I couldn’t live in a house that had this colour scheme in every room.

  1. What is your favourite curse word?

I say “Bloody” a lot.

  1. What sound or noise do you love?

I love the sound of the birds in my garden and the sound of a steam train working hard.

  1. What sound or noise do you hate?

Rap music which is an oxymoron to me and monotonous machinery  like when someone runs a car or bike engine continually.

  1. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

I don’t have a profession I’ve only ever had jobs which is fine with me. I work to live not the other way around. If I’d had a profession travel writer or travel agent would have been good ones for me or maybe historian, antiques expert or archaeologist.

  1. What profession would you not like to do?

I would not want to do anything in the medical profession including doctor, dentist, nurse or carer (except to a close relative and not as a profession)

  1. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

“There are some people and animals here that can’t wait to see you.”

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.
