What is your favourite comfort snack food? 

I love raisin toast.

What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?

My very first job when I left school was as a sales assistant in the local branch of a department store called Moores. It has long since closed down but that was nothing to do with me. The photo is of the Adelaide branch of the store now knows as the Samuel Way Building and used as law courts.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I appreciate the good friend that came over one evening last week to hang a cabinet on my bathroom wall and over the past two years has helped me by doing many small handyman jobs around the house thus saving me the expense of  getting tradespeople to do those things. I also appreciate Naomi giving me the cabinet which she bought for her own bathroom but did not end up using.

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.
