Share Your World 2020: 20 April


In your opinion what animal is the most majestic?

I’m going to say the lion, traditionally the king of the beasts. I also think that stags are very majestic looking animals.

What seemingly innocent question makes you think “It’s a trap!”?

I honestly can’t think of a specific one but I would say that the kind of questions that they ask you at job interviews and performance reviews are a good example of the type of questions that I’m immediately wary of.

What weird potato chip flavor that doesn’t exist would you like to try?

What weird potato chip flavor that doesn’t exist would you like to try?

I’m not sure if one of these questions was meant to be “what weird potato chip flavour that does exist would you like to try?” or whether this was a typo. In any case my answer is the same. None. I do like potato chips but I rarely eat them because I don’t eat food with a lot of salt on it. Not for health reasons, salt makes my lips sting. However, when I do eat them I am perfectly happy with original or maybe barbecue chips. I don’t care about trying new flavours.


Things have not changed for me since last week. No real highs or lows. I’m grateful for the small things. I’m healthy, I’m getting regular grocery deliveries, I finally have a working mobile phone after a month or more without. I have a kind neighbour who rings me sometimes to see if I am OK. We’ve had some rain and I am happy to lay in bed at night and listen to it fall, as it fills the water tanks. I finally got some golden syrup so I could make Anzac Biscuits.


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 Vanda for Sharing Your World. Those biscuits look AMAZING! I’d certainly be pleased to sample one if we were near each other. 🙂 The potato chip question was poorly worded perhaps. I’ll correct it and see if that helps any. Thanks for pointing that out! 🙂 Have a great week and I’m glad you have someone who checks in on you, time to time. That’s always comforting I think!
