Share Your World 2021: 21 June


What’s one question you wish more people asked you?

Hmm, that’s a good one. I can only think of questions that I wish people didn’t ask me. I enjoy it when people ask me about things I’m interested in like collecting dolls, as long as they don’t ask me how many I have; travel or memories of things and events but I don’t think that there is one thing I’d like to be asked more often than others.

Do you like eggs?  What’s your favorite way to have them served? (Optional obviously, I know there are egg dislikers in the crowd)..

Yes, I like eggs very much. My favourite way to have them is fried with bacon, and maybe a sausage and baked beans, and bread to mop up the yolk of course. I don’t have that very often but I love it. I also like scrambled eggs on toast.

Thoughts on scary movies?  (not horror necessarily, but suspense or action/thrillers)

Not my favourite genre. I don’t really care for anything violent or bloodthirsty. If I want that I can watch the news.

Do you believe in Karma?

If you mean as in cause and effect I like to think that Karma exists. I know that is not exactly what it is meant to be about but I like to think that both good and bad deeds will be repaid in kind.


At this moment, what you are most grateful for?

It’s not the best week to ask me that. I killed my laptop last week. I guess that has made me grateful that I bought the new desktop last year because it has wi fi which the old desktop didn’t. The NBN box that the router has to be plugged into is downstairs so I need to connect with wi fi. If I hadn’t updated my desktop I wouldn’t be able to access the internet which would be a disaster for me.

On a more cheery note I got some great bird photos on Sunday.

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.


  1. Thanks, Vanda for Sharing Your World! What a GORGEOUS bird! You got a great shot! I’m sorry to read about your computer woes, but you know that last week was bad for some of us regarding our machines. Hopefully we both can relax a bit now because those issues have been at least partially solved. Actually you hit the nail right on the head with the Karma question. I don’t know much about the more religious aspects of karma that some follow, I’d hate to think I might come back as a cockroach or something. Ew. No, I meant it exactly as you took it, as in attracting bad vibes because we’ve put bad vibes out there. I’ve seen that in action. Helped make me shape up a bit too, because I certainly didn’t want some of my more questionable actions boomeranging back to me. That egg photo was really cute too! Have a much better week going forward!
