RDP: Copious


It is actually Tuesday here, since the RDP started coming from different parts of the world I am never sure if I am on time for it or not.

Anyway, yesterday, Monday, I was at the Op Shop. People often drop things off at the shop over the weekend after house cleaning or garage sales so when we arrived yesterday morning we found copious amounts of bags and boxes waiting to be unpacked. I also carried copious numbers of bags of rubbish out to the  skip. A busy day.

Today I am at home. I need to spring clean the house ready to put it back on the market after taking a break over winter. I’ve been sweeping up copious amounts of dust bunnies from places that don’t usually get my attention.

At the moment I’m taking a coffee break and I see that I had better break out the insect spray as there are a few of those annoying little ants that always seem to appear as soon as there is a sunny day. I need to get rid of the advance party before copious numbers of their relatives arrive.


So that’s my post for today. I still have copious amounts of cleaning to do even though I would much rather be playing on the computer.

When you haven’t swept or dusted all weekend.


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. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
