Share Your World: 6 September


Do you believe in soul-mates?  (my definition of ‘soul mate’ is the IDEAL partner romantically).

I’m not very romantic but I do believe that there is someone out there for everyone.

What are three scents you like?

  • Baking bread
  • freshly cut grass
  • Rain

What are some things that you might be considered too old to do, but that you enjoy?

Playing with dolls.

What is one food you absolutely refuse to share?

I love the crust of a loaf of bread. Luckily Naomi doesn’t.

GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional)

Please feel free to share something positive! 

Spring is here at last! Even though we are still getting cold days, rainy days and windy days (spring is a windy season in Tasmania) there has been some sunshine and the daffodils are out.   



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. Thank you Vanda for Sharing Your World! I agree with the crust (or end as we call it over here) being the BEST part of a loaf of bread! Yum! I’m wildly envious of your lovely coming Spring. Over here it’s trundling into Autumn, which is okay (at least it’s cooler) and then brrrrrr Winter (not okay) Daffodils are so cheerful! Your choice of scents are great, I appreciate all those too! I also think your doll collection and how you engage with them is lovely and not child-like at all. It is whimsical fun IMHO. Have a wonderful week and enjoy the blooming and growing green things!
