Share Your World 2021:


QUESTIONS: 

Is every piece of truth worth telling?   (credit to the magnificent Cyranny for this one)

I’m going to say no. There are times when I would withhold the truth if it would not serve any useful purpose and only cause hurt to the person being told.

Whom do you miss more Freddy Mercury or Prince?  (if you don’t know who those people are, just skip this question.  It’s cool).

While both were great musicians I can’t say that I miss one more than the other as I was not a big fan of either. I probably liked Queen more than Prince though.

If you could only email or text people for the rest of your life (no other form of communication), which would you chose?  

Email definitely, you can say more. For me emailing someone is like writing a letter that gets there faster than snail mail. Text is handy for quick messages. Plus I hate phones.

Would you prefer to work the midnight shift at a really creepy out of the way motel OR work alone for eternity?

For practical reasons I would not like to work at an out of the way motel at night. Too hard to get there and too hard to get home. It has nothing to do with “Psycho”. I don’t mind working alone. I’ve done it before and it doesn’t bother me in the slightest.

Bonus question because yes, these are a weird bunch this week:   What’s one secret you’re still keeping from your immediate family? (no details required.  You could say something like “The lost weekend in 1982”.  You can also answer “Why I NEVER keep secrets from my nearest and dearest!”).

Nope. My secrets will go to the grave with me.

GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)

Please feel free to share something uplifting that you’ve experienced so far in 2021.

We’ve been out and about a bit this last couple of weeks. One afternoon we stopped at Boat Harbour Beach which is the next township to Sisters Beach. We visited our favourite antique shop in this area, “Cake, Cuppa and Collectibles” at Sisters Creek for afternoon tea and browsing. We went to a car swap meet near Ulverstone and saw some fabulous vintage cars and then on to Don Market and Devonport where there is a humongous antique emporium.

Taswegian1957

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 WordPress.com 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. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
