Sandman’s Q&A


Do you have designated food nights? For example Sheldon Cooper has nights assigned to Thai Food and Pizza.

While I’m not as rigid as Sheldon I did have designated food nights/days for a long time. As a child and for many years after it was customary to have roast lamb for lunch on Sundays. I still like that tradition but lamb has become so expensive that it is now just an occasional treat. We also followed the tradition of Fish and Chip Fridays. I only recently stopped doing this. Although I do have fish and chips quite often on a Friday I realised that as I am not Catholic or even really religious the world would not end if I had something else sometimes. More recently Naomi and I have started up Pizza Night which can be Friday or Saturday. Our local store at Sisters Beach always has pizzas on those nights and they are really good pizzas.

What colour are your eyes? Have you ever thought about changing their colour(i.e, contact lenses)?

Brown and no.

If you were wearing a mood ring right now, what colour would it be (see image for colour guide)?

I’d be green.



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.
