Share Your World: 18 February


Sharing My World This Week

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

I’d read more, write more and unfortunately I’d probably shop more online.

Some old travel books from my bookshelves

What job would you be terrible at?

I can think of loads of jobs I’d be terrible at. I’d be a terrible athlete, I’d be terrible at anything that involved ladders, don’t ask me to clean your windows or gutters. I would be lousy at anything in the medical profession as I can’t even watch CSI without cringing at the sight of blood and gore. It would probably be a shorter list if I said what I might be good at.

 When was the last time you climbed a tree?

I’ve never climbed a tree. Fear of falling remember.

Polly has never climbed a tree either.

Do you count your steps? 

What for? I have tried a pedometer a couple of times but for me walking is more enjoyable if I am not thinking about exercise.

Bonus question (just because it’s really silly)   What’s the dumbest way you’ve injured yourself?

I’m not sure it’s the dumbest but I once put my back out cutting my toenails.

 

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.

  1. Thanks so much for Sharing Your World. I’d forgotten the on-line shopping…eeek. I’d do a whole LOT more of that myself! 🙂 Throwing your back out while bending over like that makes a great deal of sense to me. Heck, I can’t even reach mine anymore, a doctor has to take care of them. So we all have our challenges I guess! Have a great week! 🙂
