Do You Have Any Guilty Pleasures?

I guess that would probably be chocolate. I don’t buy chocolate or chocolate biscuits just for myself very often. It’s always a big temptation to eat it all at one go but I usually try to make it last if I have it. Once in a while though I will think “Darn it, I’m just going to finish it.”

What Is The Worst Pick Up Line You Ever Heard?  

            For the guys: What’s The Worst Pick Up Line You’ve Used?

I don’t believe that anyone has ever used a pickup line on me. I know David didn’t and I only went on one date before I met him.

What Slang Or Trend Makes You Feel Old?

Millennials make me feel old full stop. I don’t understand their slang half the time. I have no idea who the actors and musicians they follow are and I hate the way they write articles that begin “You have been doing …….. all wrong.” As if to say that they know best about everything.

What Do You Consider The Most Over-rated Song?

I can’t choose one song out of millions. When you hear one song on the radio all the time you can get very tired of it especially if it is not your sort of music.  For example when we were on holidays Naomi and I got very tired of the music being played on board our cruise ship. We didn’t know what most of it was but I think that the soundtrack to “The Greatest Showman” had just been released and that featured heavily. Most of the time I just don’t listen to the radio except for classical music  (except opera).

Instead of a Tender Mercies question, here’s a philosophical one instead:

You Find A Book And Begin To Read Only To Discover That It Is Your Life. You Get To The Point That You Are At Now, Do You Turn The Page Knowing That You Will Not Be Able To Change The Events To Come?

I don’t know that I’d like to be put in that position. I have been known to peek at the end of a book to see “how it comes out” but I don’t know if I want to know when or how I will die or what the end of my life might be like. I think I’d stop reading.



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. 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.


  1. I would stop reading as soon as I realized the nature of the book I was reading. I do not want to see the future unless I’m going to get younger and richer and happier.

    As for guilty pleasures, at my age, there aren’t many of them left worth feeling guilty about!
