Share Your World 2017 – Week #17

Sharing My World This Week

Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?

I would rather live in a temperate climate where it is not too hot, not too cold but “just right”. Tasmania comes pretty close to fitting the bill. It gets hot but not extremely hot and not for long. It gets cold but snow is still a bit of a novelty in low-lying areas, we don’t get buried in it. However, if pressed for an answer on hot or cold I will take cold.

Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 

I prefer short hair. I had naturally curly hair although with age it is not as curly as it used to be. My hair is also very thick and heavy so keeping it short encourages the curl. I did wear it long as a child and a teenager but in the end decided looking after long hair was too much work. Below you can see the shortest hair cut I’ve ever had, me with longer hair in the late seventies and with very curly hair as a small child.

What is your favorite month of the year?

I’m tempted to say December because I love Christmas but I don’t really have a favourite month above all others.

What is the easiest way for your to learn something new?  By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom?

I am a person who really likes to read instruction manual, recipes, patterns etc before attempting anything. Just being shown doesn’t really work for me. I can’t take in multiple steps at once. I think that I prefer a combination of watching a demonstration then being left alone with the instructions to try it myself. Video or DVD’s are good because you can go back and watch as many times as you need to and I like to have the instruction manual or a book for future reference. Just answering this question reminded me how nervous I get when an instructor is watching me work.

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 I overdid it a bit at the Op Shop one day and had some lower back pain so I stayed quietly at home for the rest of the week. By Saturday I felt good enough to wash my kitchen walls in preparation for painting them which I need to do soon. I am grateful that my Op Shop co-workers are understanding when I can’t do as much as they can.

This week will be uneventful, Op Shop, chores at home, groceries being delivered, blogging; but that’s OK. I don’t need excitement all the time.


Author: Taswegian1957

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.

  1. I’m not surprised you are a reader and viewer. It just seems to fit. Yes, we both like our temperate climates. 😀 😀 Chris and I have often thought of New Zealand as a place to live or visit. Although you seem to a lot buggier than we are.
