Share Your World 2018: 5 February

Sharing My World This Week

What would be your ideal fantasy way to spend Monday?

If I am at home I would get any necessary chores out of the way early and then the day would be spent on hobbies, some doll photography or something doll related, rearranging, changing clothes or maybe some doll sewing. Later in the day would be for knitting, photo editing and blogging. In-between times there would be ball throwing for Cindy when she wanted it.

A day out would be getting on the road early with the camera to visit an interesting town or location, take some pictures, browse some second-hand shops and have a nice lunch somewhere.

I guess this is not really a fantasy in that these are things I actually do but it would be nice to be able to do them whenever I wanted.

What one person that you are out of contact with would you like to say thank you to?

I don’t know if I can really answer this as most of the people I am out of contact with and would like to thank are gone forever. But I think they know.

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

I went for an eye test last week. I hadn’t been for nearly four years and I was relieved that while my sight had deteriorated a little due to age it was not a lot worse. I appreciate my eyesight as without it I would not be able to take photographs, enjoy the beauty around me or see the faces of my family, friends and pets.

In a couple of weeks I will also be able to appreciate the world through new glasses.

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.
