Sharing My World This Week

If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?

  • Raisin bread
  • Lamb
  • apples

and of course a never-ending supply of Tim Tams

List at least five movies or books that cheer you up.

I have a few books that always make me laugh even though they are very old.

Gerald Durrell’s “My Family and Other Animals and “The Picnic”, a collection of short stories always make me laugh out loud.

Emily Kimbrough’s travel books such as “Water, Water Everywhere” and “A Right Good Crew” still make me chuckle after many reads.

Also Betty MacDonald’s books particularly “Onions in the Stew”

As I enjoy both travel and humour I also enjoy Bill Bryson’s books although I did take exception to his views on cricket!

If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing? 

A hypothetical mouse at my place would see me either on the computer blogging or chatting or on the couch watching Netflix or YouTube. If I was in the lounge Cindy would be asleep in her basket or on an armchair and Polly, if she was feeling sociable,  would be on her favourite perch on top of an armchair. If she wasn’t feeling sociable not even a mouse would spot her as she’d probably be in the linen cupboard.


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. 

Autumn, which is probably my favourite season in Tasmania. I’m enjoying the mild days and changing colours of the leaves although I could do without the annual forest regeneration burns.

I’m also re-watching “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mystery’s” on Netflix and appreciating the plots, characters and costumes.



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.
