Share Your World 2019: 21 October


Had any good conversations with yourself lately? Did you listen to yourself? And how’d that work out for you?   (Credit Allie Bean   https://thespectacledbean  )

I try to give myself good advice and I usually take it. Of course, I don’t have a one hundred per cent success rate but I haven’t fired myself yet.

What is gravity and how does it work?

Gravity is the force that keeps us all from floating off the planet. Of course, if I were a Flat Earther I’d probably say that I didn’t believe in gravity and that it was all fake news.

What is more real – Mind or Matter? 

When we are asked to do things that we really balk at we’re told it is mind over matter. Often that means the person insisting doesn’t mind and it doesn’t matter what we think.

Should a vegetarian (or vegan) eat animal crackers? 

Technically I suppose that a vegan shouldn’t as they have dairy products in them. Some people might be too PC to eat them anyway I guess.

Name (describe) something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark and deserted wood or alley.   Politicians are a given, so skip those please.  Thanks! 

A tree or a wall. I have terrible night vision and I’d walk into something I couldn’t see or more likely fall over and hurt myself. Alternatively, this guy.

Or these guys.



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. Thanks for Sharing Your World Vanda! I chuckled all the way through and admit to being a little relieved that someone else finds those ‘science fiction’ characters a bit scary. And I’m sorry about the night vision, but I privately think that’s another little joke God has visited on us. The longer we stick around, the less likely we are to see if it gets dark outside. Have a great week! 🙂
