Share Your World- 16 April 2018


Sharing My World This Week

List things or events that changed your life?

 Well, I think that the one thing that changed my life more than anything else is coming to live in Australia as a child. If I had stayed in England my whole life would have been different. I’d have gone to different schools, got a different job and visited different places. Maybe I would never have seen Australia. Certainly I would never have met David.

The other thing that journey changed about me was that it gave me a love of ships and travel which has never left me.

Complete this sentence: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s…

A Jindvik target drone, these were operated by the Royal Australian Navy mainly for crew training exercises. This one is at the Aviation Museum in Port Adelaide.

What genre of music do you like?

I like rock and some pop music from the sixties, seventies and eighties but I also enjoy some jazz, some blues, soul and even some classical music at times. I like musicals but not opera.  The only type of country music I can listen to is bluegrass. I find most modern music which Naomi and I have started to call “Millennial Music” quite boring and repetitious.

 

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’ve just returned home from holidays and while I’ve seen some amazing things and appreciated being able to travel and see another part of the world I think what I appreciated most was seeing my home and pets again.

Taswegian1957

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 WordPress.com 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.
