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.

  1. I hated that stupid reading cart. The books were boring and I was only allowed to take books from the one shelf. I hated most of the books on it and kept taking the same book. The only one I really liked. They never changed the dam books on it. I didn’t enjoy library time either as I always seemed to be on the table that went last and all the Cat in the Hat books were gone! I was so pissed about that situation. I could never find a book I enjoyed and I preferred the art and craft lessons. I didn’t bother much about books until high school when we had The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Most school novels were boring especially Man Shy. I reckon I read nearly every Agatha Christie since leaving school. I still don’t read a great deal. I have to be really into a book. Most of my books have bookmarks in them from where I got up to. My shelves are full of books with bookmarks or bits of paper shoved in them because I never finished them. Well at least I am not one of those dull people who only have that book to read. I can remember someone who even read a phone book because they were so addicted to books.
