Share Your World 2021: 12 July


Okay we’re flipping things over this week with three rather silly questions and one philosophical one.

What would be much better if you could just change the color of it?

These days so many things are grey, clothes, houses inside and out, bedding, towels. You name it, almost all of it would look better in almost any other colour. All this grey is depressing.

Do You Think Cats Have Any Regrets?

No, a cat doesn’t have that kind of mind. They live in the present.

Do you ever count your steps when you walk?

I did try to with a pedometer some years ago but I always forget that I have it so no.

Is there a supreme power?  (you choose over what, and please be respectful)

Honestly, I don’t know. Maybe there is and maybe there isn’t.


Please feel free to share some gratitude with everyone! 

When I started doing this post last night I was waiting for Naomi to arrive from Oatlands and she was longer than I expected so I was grateful that she arrived safely. Today is moving day, We’re waiting for her big truck full of furniture to arrive and I think we will both be grateful when this day is over.



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. Congratulations on your sister moving in! I’m sure things will be grand! It’s gray over here too (at least for the past week there’s been gray skies in the morning, no rain and it’s hot but no blue skies either. I wonder if there isn’t a big wildfire somewhere about, only I can’t smell the smoke! Some blue in the sky would be welcome! I believe your answer to the cat question is right. They do live in the present, so why regret anything? Have a wonderful week and good luck with settling Naomi in!
