Fandango’s Provocative Question #72

What is the one thing in life that you are most excited about right now? Why?

Here in Tasmania Covid-19 restrictions are gradually being eased. This weekend for the first time Tasmanians can travel freely throughout the state (but not out of it).

That means that my sister, who lives about three and a half hours drive from here, can come and stay for the weekend. We are planning that for next week because she has to work part of this one. I wouldn’t go as far as to say I’m excited. I don’t think I have been excited about anything for a long time but I’m looking forward to it. We keep in regular touch but we haven’t seen each other for three months. It will also be nice to go somewhere myself. As a non driver in a township with no public transport I’ve not been anywhere since early March.

It feels as if life is slowly returning to normal. It’s now possible to go to a cafe or to a restaurant, lots of restrictions of course but at least they are open.

Sisters Beach


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.
