Where Do You Not Mind Waiting?

I rarely minded waiting for a train at a big railway station. I always find them interesting.

What Is In Your Fridge Right Now?  (you’re not required to give a comprehensive list)

Milk, eggs, margarine, butter, cheese, tomatoes, carrots , apples, some sauces and tomato paste, jam, bacon, ham, leftovers. Icecream in the freezer compartment. I have a separate freezer where I keep meat andT frozen veg. I only shop fortnightly and this is the end of the fortnight so fresh veg is mostly gone.

If You Could Only Speak One Word Today, What Would It Be?

I can’t think of one word that would be particularly useful on its own. I have days when I only talk to the pets and they would probably vote for “Dinner”.

Would You Rather Be Trapped In An Elevator Full Of Men With BO Or Three Soaked Dogs?  (this is with the codicil that C-19 doesn’t exist)

Dogs, no question. No embarrassing pauses or uncomfortable small talk.

I am grateful to the local lady who gave me a ride to Wynyard one day last week so I could do some errands. I’m grateful that our downstairs heater works and we won’t need to buy another one to keep us warm down there, well not this winter anyway. I’m grateful that the few bulbs I planted are coming up and I will have some daffodils and tulips in the spring.

Spring is officially here.

Spring is officially here.


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.
