Share Your World 2018 – 18 June


Sharing My World This Week

You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? Sushi? Scotch Tape?

Well to me the obvious thing would be money, then I could buy as much Scotch Tape as I liked.  Seriously it wouldn’t have to be a fortune but to know you had a guaranteed income for the rest of your life with no fear of unemployment or the government cutting it back would be a great relief.

Teleportation or flying?

Teleportation; especially if I can do it from home and not have to go to an airport like facility to do it. I wouldn’t trade sea voyages or long distance train trips but flying and buses I would not really miss.

Would you rather live where it only snows or the temperature never falls below 100 degrees?

I’ve just experienced the latter in Singapore. I will take the snow. Well being practical living in a place where it snowed all the time would be hard too so I’d want to spend some of that unlimited money on heating and warm clothing and boots. I like a happy medium really and I think that I have it right here.

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 had a brief trip to Hobart last week. A friend was going to do some errands in Hobart and nearby Kingston and I went along for the ride. We are both from Adelaide so we spent the drive there and back chatting about places we knew, recalling as many different theatres in the city and suburbs as we could. That was fun. We went to Bunnings, a big hardware store in Kingston and while my friend was buying plumbing supplies I went to the garden department and bought myself several pots of pansies and polyanthus which were on special.

 

 

 

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.
