Is it ever okay to commit a crime?  Please explain.

I guess that depends on the definition of crime. Sometimes a bad law needs to be broken to draw attention to the fact that it needs to be changed. I’m a law-abiding person though and in most cases, I’d say crime doesn’t pay. If the cops don’t get you karma will.

Do you deal with change well?  (not money, because I know some wit out there is thinking how bulky coins are. Well I did any how.    ) 

I deal with change better if it is a change I have chosen to make myself. I don’t like changes that are forced on me against my will like WordPress Editors, Daylight Saving Time (when I was younger), and many of the buzz words and abbreviations that are creeping into the English language. I’ll save my rant about those for another day but one of my pet hates is “Fam” for family.

Do you like birds?   The sound of bird song in the morning, taking pictures of them, as food? 

All of the above. I love listening to them and I love seeing them, although I rarely manage to get good photos of them. I have had birds as pets in the past but I don’t really like handling them myself. And yes, I like eating chicken.

What’s the least used item of clothing you own?

Swimsuit. If you saw me in one you would know why.


I’ve been able to tick a few jobs off the list this week. I had an electrician come and fix some dodgy light fittings and power points and was assured that the house wiring is in pretty good nick. I was worrying that I might need to get it rewired so that was great news.

The water pump which had a slow leak for some time got a lot worse recently and I ended up having to buy a new one. I’m grateful to have the work done, less grateful for the bill, but that’s houses for you.

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.
