Share Your World 2020: 19 October


The first question is courtesy of the magnificent blogger, Rory (aka A Guy Called Bloke”). He asked this one last Saturday on a random question post he wrote and I thought it was nifty AND sort of Halloween-y, so I thought I’d include it.
“How many people in real life or on social media (including WordPress, which has become a rather social media site) do you consider good enough friends to help you ‘hide the dead body?”
This is purely a silly and fun exercise, so don’t worry that there are bodies in need of burying. At least I don’t have any…. if you do, I hope you have some good friends who will lend a hand in getting rid of the evidence AND never tell a living soul….

I doubt that I would ask anyone who was a social media only friend for such a task because of 1) distance and 2)social media is a haven for gossip and I would get sprung. Most of my social media friends are actually people I know personally but some are more acquaintances than close friends.

Of my IRL friends and family maybe one or two but I would hesitate to get people I cared about involved in my mess.

Are You Ready To Order?   What Are You Having (craving) right now?

Naomi was visiting these past few days and I feel like we did nothing but eat so I think I am all craved out. I baked before she came, she baked while she was here and at the local supermarket we came upon a huge display of our favourite biscuits, Tim Tams, at a fantastically reduced price so of course we bought a couple of packets. Last time she was here Naomi brought two packets of Tim Tams with her because they were on special and unknown to her I had also bought two packets. Over the six days she was here we ate the lot so I guess that Tim Tams are our crave.

How’s the weather in YOUR neck of the woods?

It’s spring, so unpredictable. It seems as if we get half a day of one thing and half a day of something else. I might wake up and see sunny skies. I take Cindy for a walk in the morning and it feels warm and the beach is lovely. Then around lunchtime it changes, becomes overcast and windy and the rain comes. Or it may be the other way around, awful in the morning but clears up by the end of the day. One constant thing in spring is the wind.

Lastly, one deep question, because some folks enjoy those.  Prepare yourself.  Or pass. It’s all good!

There has always been something. Before there was something, there was only nothing. Which do you think is more likely?

Science offers us theories about how the universe began but science can’t really tell us if there was ever only nothing. Even the Big Bang Theory (the science not the sitcom), which is the most popular origin theory says that in the beginning all matter was compacted into a small ball so at that time there was still something. What was before that? The only answer I can suggest is to consult The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Attitude of Gratitude:

What is your favorite time of year?  Why?

Favourite season or favourite time of year?

If the former then it’s a toss between spring and autumn. In the Huon Valley both are lovely. I do love the fact that our milder climate and more deciduous trees means that Tasmania gets a proper autumn with pretty leaves and a sort of golden light. Here on the north west coast though there are not so many of those types of trees so autumn is less noticeable. On the other hand we have the tulip farm which is amazing.

If it is the latter then it’s Christmas, hands down.



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.
