Share Your World: 13 May 2019


Questions:

What social stigma does society need to get over already?

There are plenty but I’m going to say poverty. There are many people who are poor through no fault of their own and people need to stop judging them without knowing their circumstances.

What was the last photo you took?

I took a batch of photos of dolls I was fixing up to go back to the Op Shop. This was the last one of the batch.

 When was the last time you snooped and found something or found out something you wish you hadn’t?

So long ago that I don’t remember what it was. I don’t look at other people’s phones or read their mail and I try not to overhear conversations that were not meant for my ears. If people are saying bad things about me I don’t need to hear it.

What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever slept in?

The last bed David and I bought was to replace an ageing queen sized bed. That one was very comfortable but he had broken the wooden frame three times and frankly, I had got tired of mending it.  I also got tired of trying to sleep in the 30 centimetres or so left when he was fully spread out. I know it was 30 centimetres because one night I measured it.

So I convinced him we needed a larger bed. We bought a king sized bed with a pillow top mattress and it was so comfortable. I was sorry to let it go but it made no sense to me to keep it after he died. It was just too big for me alone. I sold it to some friends and they loved it.

King sized bed.

 

Can being grateful change Your World?

Yes, I believe so. Being grateful puts things in perspective and reminds me that no matter what is going on in my life there are good things in it. If I only focused on the negative things I would be unhappy a lot more often.

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.

    1. The King did take up a lot of room, luckily the bedrooms in this house are quite a good size but I did some careful measuring before we ordered it. As you can see from the photo I only allowed myself the bare minimum of space next to the bed to get in and out. I use a single now which was a bit of shock to the system at first. Especially for Cindy, she wanted to sleep on it with me but I had to tell her no.
