Sharing My World This Week

Are You A Better Listener or Speaker?

I would be a hopeless public speaker although I am fine with people I know and better than I used to be with strangers but probably still a better listener.

What Are You Passionate About?

A lot of things, cruelty to animals, lack of compassion by governments towards the poor, displaced and disadvantaged.

If You Could Change One Thing About Your World, What Would It Be?

In my own personal world if I could change just one thing I think I’d like most not to have the aches and pains that mean I can’t sit on the floor any more, that if I get down on my knees I know I’m going to have trouble getting back up again and that standing for too long is likely to give me a back ache or sore feet.

Author: Taswegian1957

Born in England in 1957 my 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. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
