Blogiversary #4

It was on the 30th of May 2013 that I wrote the first post for this blog. I had just started my doll blog and had been blogging for about a month or so when I  felt that I wanted to write off topic so My Other Blog was born.

Today I’m pleased to say that Naomi will be joining me on this blog as well as the doll blog. She has some great photos to share and stories to tell. Look out for a post from her very soon.


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. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


  1. Time flies, I am onboard since March 2011. But you have the same endurance… I have read metrics that showed 80% of the bloggers give up in the same year they started the blog. So, it seems we have staying power 🙂 Happy blogiversary! 🙂
